Shaggy Posted February 9 Share Posted February 9 Earlier this week, I was discussing the apps that most parks - including Kings Island - are adopting as a hub for guest information. In the conversation, I brought up the fact that prior to web technology, guests never knew if any attractions would be closed for the day, until they arrived at the park. The person to whom I was speaking seemed flabbergasted by that. I explained that KI used a sign outside the main gate to indicate to guests prior to buying tickets (or entering the park) what, if any, rides would be closed that day. The sign was to the right of the main entrance, before you reached the ticket booths (that are no longer there.) The sign had various rules, like guest code of conduct, but at the bottom it had an area known as the "closed rides" sign. It simply said "The Following Attractions Will Not Operate Today" and underneath had slots where plaques with ride names would be slid in or out, if they were closed. The sign was there from the first visit I made back when the (original) Bat was new (in addition, The Bat closures also forced the park to set up sandwich boards in the entry plaza telling of its closure for the day.) But I also remember the ride closure sign being there through the majority of the Paramount years. I was wondering if anyone knew the exact year it was removed? Possibly the same time they removed the ticket booths? 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
