For those that attend opening day, just remember, the park is feeling its way through this, and will likely be operating at a very cautious speed.  Its just as new to them as it is to guests - so its

Just want to throw a big warning out there: I cannot stress this enough, please please please treat all associates with respect and DO NOT get mad at associates over enforcing the rules! I'm saying th

Not to mention, even if you don't die—there's a myriad of other reasons that make this a serious issue whether it's long term effects or simply not spreading it to those who can't afford to be out of

This makes me so happy that they are having a special time period opening for just season pass holders.  I am sure this will entice many people to buy a pass this year especially since it will be good next season too!  I tried to login into the app to be prepared in anticipation for the reservation system but when I said forgot password it says internal system error.  I hope this gets fixed soon so I don’t have any issues once they do open it up to make reservations.

I havent been able to login to the app for over a year now... If I try to log in or sign up I just get the loading circle and that's as far as it's gone... I had it up for 30 min earlier this year to see if it would eventually load... It never did

Love the sign! Even in the midst of COVID-19, the park still spends time and money to enhance the park! I am a sucker for small improvements like this.

I love all of the TLC Coney Mall has been getting recently. Ever since Coney BBQ in 2018, Coney Mall has consistently gotten more attention than any other area of the park. And it will probably continue to get more attention with the removal of Vortex.

That is a really big sign.  Hopefully, Zephyr, Scrambler, and Monster`s signs can get some love in the coming seasons.  I still miss the lights they used to have around those signs.

I really am delighted they are bringing back the red, white and blue color scheme that was original to the area, but not to that building. Is this the first time the current Dodgem building has been repainted since it was built?

Looks like they played off the old Cuddle Up logo.

I think that's just a coincidence. As noted above, the new sign is the same design as Cedar Point's sign, and Cedar Point's sign was added back in 2004. Cedar Point's sign was definitely going for a 1950s/1960s retro look though, which Cuddle Up's sign un-ironically achieved when it (the sign, not the ride) was added in the 1960s.

So, is it possible to actually place a reservation yet? Just bought my passes and we're trying to get things set up for an opening day visit. I don't see where to reserve on the App anywhere... Any help or information would be appreciated. <3

Try going to one of the other cedar park websites and login. I had issues at the beginning of the year, reset my password through CP website, and it let me sign in to KI site after that. Weird but guess they're tied together

No.  Kings Island / Cedar Fair have given no official date as to when reservations can be made.

I love this. Did they paint the building as well?  I love the sprucing up. 

From the blog post you quoted:

In addition to the new sign, the exterior of the Dodgem has received a fresh coat of paint.

I love the new look of the attraction. It'll really add some color to Coney Mall.

Did Kings Island replace the American flags? Maybe they changed them to Kings Island flags to honor Tom Dillingham which I think is a great way to honor such an important figure, but I wonder if they are going to keep these flags.

The original signs at KI were like that as well.81DF187F-8812-4359-A853-BEA600AC80E9.jpeg

Yes, because those signs were directly transposed from Cincinnati's Coney Island. My statement that the new  sign is the same as the one that Cedar Point installed 16 years ago, and that any relation to Cuddle Up's sign is likely a coincidence, still stands.
