Quick (Jungle Jim's/Kings Island) Monorail Update

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, 

Back in the day I wrote a story about Kings Island's old monorail for this website. 

Last year, I revisited that story and did an update for 2018 on my own website. 

Now, I'm back with one more update for you, written for Cincinnati Refined

The former KI monorail housed at Jungle Jim's had had its station/transfer table re-purposed. The former maintenance bay is now a bourbon bar and the former transfer tracks are event space. Two nights a week, the bar is open to the public, while the entire facility is mainly used as customizable/rentable facilities. Before you go off to ride the train, though, know this: it still only runs for special events. Groups booking events have the option of adding a monorail ride to their package depending on their event or set up (hint, hint KICentral off season event ;-) ). 

There are some links and updated photographs below.

Great post, I sure wish they ran the monorail more often than just special events.

Thank you and I wish the same. I know @Dane is living in a mansion off of that KIC ad revenue, buy us a monorail event, Dane!

Get on it, [mention=2]Dane[/mention]. I know you're rolling in that t-shirt money. 

Oh I’ll text you what a non funny joke that has become.

I worked at Jungle Jims for SIX years and saw it run maybe three times. It was very slow and it made loud animal noises haha. Did it do that when it ran at KI? I definitely feel like that's something Jungle added.
