To be clear, I’m not 100% sure that I saw these particular figures. I remember being taken downtown to see a display every year. The specifics escape me.

Went every year down town with my dad. Nothing really their anymore after the trains moved. If you goto the Union terminal train display you can see the talking reindeer that used to be downtown also.

The park just released the WF map. Along with a great Blog post about WF food offerings.

Looks like with the inclusion of the construction site on the map, that probably is why Flight of Fear is closed this year. Also, I cannot wait for Winterfest!

A couple things to note from the Weatherbug camera:

  • They have been adding the lighted frames formerly on the pedestals to the Royal Fountain this morning.
  • The flags on the buildings were taken down and have not been replaced.
  • There are new lighted snowflakes on the side of the German Building facing the front gate.

Here are some screenshots of what is described above via weatherbug:

Also, the snowflakes on the German building appear to be on both sides of that part and they seem to have been at least since yesterday (looking at past 24 hour images)

Drove past the park again tonight. Looked like they were doing something neat with the spotlights.

Sorry for a double post, but I would imagine these trees between the train station and Mystic Timbers would be a great spot to add some lights!

Looks like the star can change colors too.

Yeah the star is pixel mapped. What’s odd is that Dominion always had that.

They have a 1:1 scale train display in Rivertown that you can actually ride! :lol: But seriously, that would be a nice addition.

"Holiday Sing-Along" is, I assume, in Brewhouse.  I know they had it there in 2017.

It’s not going to be the “buffet only” thing is it? I don’t want to pay to get into participate in the sing along.

The parade at Carowinds looks awesome! But it made me think...if they did a parade at KI, how in the world would they fit it into the already tight schedule? The entertainment options at Winterfest are already ridiculous, in a good way.

I think when they add that next year (hint) they will either have to open a hour earlier and push everything forward, or eliminate the last performance of all shows since essentially all of the casts become the parade performers.

They had a parade in the incarnation of the Winterfest in 2005.  I still find it odd that Kings Island hasn`t copied Carowinds` lead and opened Winterfest earlier, especially on the weekends.

It would be nice in a way if they stayed open until 11, or opened earlier.  As you noted, there is a lot of entertainment to choose from. It is almost impossible to do everything in one night.  That is probably by design.  They probably want people to visit multiple times so that they end up spending more money.

1. You have to admit that this is a pretty epic photo.

2. I still stand with my previous statement for the Eiffel Tower Christmas Tree:
