@SnakePlissken @coaster sally great 6 ft social distancing from the pics shown it appears lol. The virus is gone!

Why call out me? I didn't take those pics nor was I there. I was planning on going but I have been fighting a cold for days and even though I am fully vaccinated I decided not to go and spread anything to others.

One of the photos your are probably referring to was mine.  I didn't post it as a social distancing observation.  I posted it to discuss the 2021 season, as in the ride was officially running and we were in line.

Now, it seems from your posts that you are not comfortable going to Kings Island at this point.  Guess what?  That is totally fine.  No one is forcing anyone to go.

Was the social distancing as good as it should have been?  No.  Did I feel uncomfortable at any point during the day?  No.  Here's why.  I've gotten vaccinated.  (I AM NOT STARTING A VACCINATION DEBATE.  SIMPLY STATING A FACT).  I did this to get back to normal.  Saturday was one of the most "back to normal" experiences that I have had in the past year.

Bottom line, if you feel comfortable in maskless crowds, enjoy the park.  If not, then either wear a mask or don't go.  As for me, I plan to enjoy the heck out of KI this summer.

I hear you there, looking forward to visiting this season! Not concerned with being outdoors in crowds, but I'm also one of those people that has been deemed "essential" (expendable?) in a position where I work with the general public all day. I have managed to not only stay COVID free, so I'm not really feeling the discomfort that others are.

Same here!  High school math teacher.  We have been in person all year, masks only in the hallways, not in the classroom.  Hope you enjoy your visits to the park!!!

What rules are being broken? I see none.

Social distancing in the lines was pretty non existent. The park was putting reminders out, so they were doing their part.

Can anyone confirm that the Tomb Raider loading drumbeat is now played in the station for Adventure Express?

I cannot confirm that, but I have seen that Adventure Express got updated effects!

Can you please describe these effects for those of us who can't make it to the park in the immediate future?

Our two year old got her first credit Saturday. She rode with her hands up.

Congratulations to her!  Things like this are why KI is so ingrained into my psyche...childhood memories and the escape it offers.  I am sure she will cherish these photos in the years to come!

The lighting is pretty much just upgraded throughout the entire ride, especially in the final tunnel, and all the animatronics are working perfectly. I don’t necessarily think brand new effects were added, but Kings Island did a great job of repairing the old ones that hadn’t worked properly in a while. One noticeable change is that the tunnel right before the first lift hill now had blue LED’s that give it a completely different look than it had before.

So question for whoever answers this. Since people weren't maintaining social distancing and/or wearing face coverings when they were supposed to, will Kings Island get fined by the state of Ohio? Also will they have to go back to having employees in the lines like last year?

DeWine is ending all restrictions. All of them. So, no. On both accounts.

My goodness those food lines.  I wonder what percentage of people waiting in line for food have a meal plan.

I like when you can order on a touch screen and scan your pass to use meal plan. It seems to make it much easier and faster

 Who all is going to be at the park tomorrow? I'm thinking of leaving Indy around 8:30 tomorrow morning to get there for rope drop. It looks like it will be me, myself, and I going tomorrow, so if anyone wants to wander around with another human let me know!!
