Coney Island Cincinnati to remove all rides

I'm still wondering what Coney will be like for big events like Balloon Glow and especially Fire Up the Nite. The rides have always been a big draw at both events (and a reason to get there early to beat the crowds). With the pool being closed by the time Fire Up the Nite occurs, there's not going to be much for anyone to do before the fireworks start.

My wife and I discuss this every year when it comes to passes for our family. Kings Islands is definitely the better deal, but as far as location (we are in Amelia) and the fact that my wife just wants to lay in the pool on a raft or hang out in the deep end of the pool, we ultimately choose Coney because there is no place for my wife to relax at KI in a pool.

Exactly.   Zoombezi Bay has an adults only lazy river and bar with drinks allowed on the tubes.  Just take my money.

I would say look for it to be expanded upon in future years.  This year, I am sure, will be a bit of a transition year.

Also, part of the park is currently under water, as the Ohio River is expected to be above flood stage this weekend.  Currently, Kellogg Avenue is closed between Sutton (Gate 2 of the park), and Belterra Park to the east, right by where Sunlite Pool is located.

Its sad that its another park I will miss out on. The second I heard Elitch Gardens was closing I flew to Denver to make sure I didn't miss the park. I was a year shy of GL in Ohio before it closed.

Elitch won’t close. The park is owned by a spouse to a heir of the Walton family. The owner has a history of having his businesses get their way (LA Rams for example). If anything the city will relocate them.

Furthermore, with this pandemic, the housing community might not proceed as originally anticipated.

I hope your right. Though the park really had its issues I actually liked the park. Lakeside was nice as well but really needed someTLC

Per their social media channels, the park has announced that the third party carnival rides previously slated for Ballon Glow will not be appearing due to a scheduling conflict. 
 

If only there was a way they could have rides available to the public during large events like these…

It’s almost as if they make these decisions using a blindfold and a dart board.
