Interesting that they are having the longest preview time frame yet limiting to only one day per person. Hope the 5th Isn't too busy. Fingers crossed!

Before it even starts here's a tip: type your season pass Q-codes in your keyboard enough times for it to be recognized on mobile phones quicker. I'm down to only needing to enter the first 2 digit/letters for it to recognize.

That is a great idea! I might try to do it on my computer and have everything typed on a virtual Sticky Note, so I can just copy and paste the codes.

If the new hours are 11:00 - 7:00 does that mean you are still allowed to go an hour early with a platinum pass?

They said that you won't be allowed through the tolls until 10:30 am, so anyone lining up before then is just wasting time.

Did I read that correctly, only 1 visit between July 2-11, and only 1 active reservation at a time for pass holders?

Yes, that is correct.

This is the first I've heard about that limitation.  Was that restriction just announced today?

It was implied previously by saying you could only hold one reservation at a time.  Most didn't interpret it that way...

I guess one thing that bugs me is I am assuming that billing will resume however season passholders are being stripped of ERT and techinally not unlimited use.  I think the park has handled this very well otherwise!

You do get the 2021 season for free, though, and ERT for pass holders will likely resume next season if all goes well.

Season passes have always been subject to capacity limits, which are subject to change. COVID-19 has, of course, dramatically reduced the capacity of all types of businesses.

The way I see it, I bought a 2021 season pass, and whatever visits I get this season during the pandemic are a bonus.

After the first week just like any other park they will see that they are not even close to there capacity and will alter said rules on how many days you can reserve.

At least for the first month, no night rides (except for the 4th).  Hopefully after things open up and settle down, maybe August will have some later hours...fingers crossed. :)

Slight bummer, but still exciting to see the park opening!

Now I'm kinda hoping our school district does online learning so we can head to KI for a few days in August and September. We start 1st week of August blah

I wouldn't expect before customer service comes in for people that have system issues.

Let me spell it out a little more clearly.

You are allowed one reservation at a time.

You can only reserve on day between July 2nd and July 11th, as of today.

Based on capacity, they may change that requirement.

Reservations are now open in Kings Island's online app and in the online store.

So I just got my reservations for the 4th!  Here's a question, though, I go the confirmation email, but there is not direct confirmation of the pass codes I entered.  In other words, no confirmation of you entered "XYZ code which belongs to Joe Smith's pass," or I can't find the reservation "showing" on my pass in the app or anything, like the dining plan does, for instance.  Is this typical?  Anyone have insight?
