Ride Wait Times 2020 Season


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why Banshee has been down recently? While it has only been down this weekend so far, there are boards and equipment underneath the ride per a Coaster Nation post which is unusual.

We were at the park today -- came thru gate at 1050, my 14yr old son and I bolted to grab Orion passes while my wife and 11yr old son went to wait for Mystic.      Got my 11-12pm window pass for

We should feel lucky that the park is open in July with daily hours even if just 11-7.  I would not be surprised that in August KI will follow the lead of other CF parks (Worlds of Fun and Dorney Park

The guest experience with ride tickets is much better than waiting in a 2+ hour queue amid reduced capacity. On Saturday, most guests had a minimal wait when they showed up for their return time.

I meant to post this last week, but I had bought 2 tics and 2 FLP passes during the President's Day Sale....I didn't even realize that the FLP was only good through Labor Day as stated in the fine print (which I didn't read until I got home!).  I'm assuming the expiration was quietly extended given the long shutdown since the Guest Services rep said nothing when he scanned the barcode when I was at the park on 9/26 with my daughter.

I've heard it's supposedly packed today. Like worse than some Cedar Point weekends. It it truly that bad? I'm considering heading up in about an hour, but don't know if it's worth the drive if it's so packed I can't ride anything in under 2 hours.

It was pretty bad last Saturday. I’d say this one will be the same or worse.

I do trust in Kings Island’s COVID-19 prevention measures myself, but with the recent spikes in Ohio and Warren County, I am honestly shocked it is still so packed. You would think the general public would consider theme parks to be the more unsafe places. I am glad Kings Island is getting good business, though, as I in know they do a great job of keeping people safe.

I think at this point both Kings Island & Cedar Point should probably limit their capacity even more. Considering how bad the midwest is getting hit right now it seems a little irresponsible to be letting such large crowds in. The measures they have in place are good however they don't seem as effective when you have so many people inside the park.

I would tend to agree with you if only I'd read or heard of one outbreak linked to an amusement park. I live close to Indiana Beach and I think people looked on in horror awhile back at some of the pictures posted to these forums at the crowds, the lack of masks, and so on. And yet...nothing covid happened. Probably because most reliable factors are being indoors close to an infected person for 15 minutes or more. Wear your mask, stay distanced, and enjoy the outdoors at Kings Island. I'm not saying it's impossible to get Covid at KI, but I think the past several months have taught us it is unlikely to happen.

The problem is when you have so many people in the park it becomes harder to stay socially distance. If everyone wore their mask then Id agree with you more but from my personal experience at the park there is still a sizable group of people who don't wear their mask or don't wear it properly. If you just watch this video you can see how crowded its gotten at Cedar Point,
