You got lucky lol.

Almost every operating ride is full queue right now.

Flight of Fear is 3.5 hours and FL is well out the queue.

Unsurprising! How far out is it onto the A72 midway?

Anyone at the park today able to take a picture of the lines. Not sure why but I like seeing crazy lines. 

I'm not there, I have other methods of seeing stuff. The Diamondback line has overfill filled up, and nearly the normal queue out the entrance. It's a lot of people. 

Diamondback just went down for something, bunch of people leaving queue all of a sudden.

Basically all the large rides went down in really bizarre ways.

Has Kings Island confirmed they will finish repainting The Racer? Today, it seemed like no more had been painted since last week.

I really hope they finish painting it by the 29th. For many people who will be there that day, it will be the first time they have been back to Kings Island in years. It would be embarrassing to show them a half-painted ride.

Most lines are pretty light except for The Beast. Almost a full queue now.

Beast is back to the huge crowd pleaser it once was, it'll be pretty busy all season! I'm glad to see the queue so full. Haunt will be crazy...

Are the wait times long today? Since it is a week day I was wondering if the rides were walk on. Specifically what are wait times on Orion and The Beast right now?

Longer than one would expect for an 8pm Wednesday with all the rain in the forecast that has yet to happen LOL.

Orion and Diamondback are in the 15-20min range and Beast in the 35min range.

That's not encouraging. I was going to go tomorrow and the weather is expected to be much nicer. Though as long as its better than last Friday, I won't complain.

Thank you that helps so much! Doesn’t sound to crowded, but at the same time everyone might have decided to come on the first week day that Kings Island is open.

Didn't have time to post wait times today (Thursday 5/19/22) but it was a light day despite mostly nice weather. Longest wait I had was 13 minutes for Beast (or similar for BLSC) and got a bunch of walk-ons on Orion, DB, MT, Banshee... I think its the most I've gotten done in one day in a long time, if not ever. One downside: Beast was closed in the evening.

Great to hear! Did it get crowded in the evening?

Fireworks time.  Must be 10pm...oh wait LOL.  Just your run of the mill close early nights (3rd one this season I think).

Joking aside, I am actually surprised it even opened back up at all with all the lightning and weather it just took.

The park's closed early three times this season? Didn't know that!

I can hear the fireworks from where I live, and I figured they were doing them early due to all the storms that have been happening (I'm guessing there's not a ton of people in the park right now, though...).

Wasn't the lightning crazy?  A lot of action in a short period.

Did the lighting hit any of the tall structures? It was crazy today.

Didn’t see the lightning outside, but the amount of lightning bolt icons on the weather map (on the news station I was watching) was insane!

Crowds were light today thanks to heat. Everything was a walk on. This was my second visit this year, and this year is my first time back in the park since 2015. The park looks amazing! I was very impressed. I thought Beast felt great, MT was a surprise for me! I really really enjoyed that ride, and I did not think I would. I also really enjoyed Orion. I still like Fury 325 more, but I think Orion is a great addition to the park and will bring me back. Great job Kings Island!

It sounds like the weekdays are just walk ons this year!

I agree! The park has never looked better! I think Fury 325 is better but I feel like if you put Fury at Kings Island it just doesn’t work I think Orion is perfect for Kings Island and is my second favorite Giga behind Fury.
