Haven't logged on in a while, so I just saw this...

Would just like to say that I'm excited as any, and have pre-ordered my copy!

Truly special to see the park's storied past finally done justice, and chronicled as thoroughly and comprehensively as it seems this book does.

Can't wait to take my Ride Through Time!

That is when mine is expected to arrive as well.  Found it odd that it shipped from PA and was at a USPS distribution center in NJ, only to come back to Ohio!

Mine went to NJ first, too, but my ETA is 4/13. I can't wait!

Really glad to hear people have been receiving the book and enjoying it! Really exciting for me to see my book leap off a Google Doc and onto printed pages.

Tune into WCPO on TV tomorrow! John Matarese produced a feature on my book that will run at 6:30 Thursday morning and 5:30 Thursday evening. It will be posted online afterwards!

My book arrived this week. Probably going to save it to read on vacation next month, but two big surprises: 

1.) This is a good-sized book. I anticipated maybe a short, 100-page quick read. This is fairly hefty, and browsing through it, it's comprehensive and very well written. Which led to my second surprise...

2.) @KIghostguyis super young! I always assumed he was someone who was around my age, who'd been involved with the park for decades. But he's a kid! And he wrote a good-sized book! I have a master's in communication and toiled over a 100-page thesis last year; he has a nearly 400-page history on Kings Island! I'm impressed! 

Major kudos, and I look forward to reading this!

I’m glad I was able to surprise you. I hope the book’s contents are surprising as well!

This is the best KI book I've ever seen!!!! I've been waiting for a good KI book to come out forever! I was so desperate for one, that I bought a KI book that actually was a 2016 parents guide to KI.
