Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2006 edition of the Best Year Ever. Two years ago the first ~BYE~ topic was introduced, today I am proud to start the third! This year has been crazy from the start; we have had the opening of the Great Wolf Lodge, The awaiting of Winterfest 2006 and its cancel, the new universe of Nickelodeon. We won for the sixth year in a row the Golden Ticket Award for Best Kid's Area in the world! Fearfest scared the willies out of us. Cedar Fair got the park. Wings is now buffet and we found out something strange was happening near Fort Cooper.

So many happenings this year at the best park ever! This gives us new reasons to support our saying that (Paramount's) Kings Island had the Best Year Ever!!!

This years ~BYE~ will be a bit different than years past. There will be no poll in this topic, only a set of questions that you answer. Answer each question giving feedback and reason for your decision. Let's get started.

What roller coaster in your opinion had its best year ever?

Italian Job Stunt Track. The reason is that the theming was up and running almost every day and it was a thrilling ride overall.

What thrill ride in your opinion had its best year ever?

My Thrill Ride is Drop Zone. The reason for this and not Delirium is that everytime i went to ride Drop Zone iit always had a long line usually filling up the queve house.

What was the best thing that happened this year at Kings Island?

Cedar Fair buys out Paramount. I think that Cedar Fair can do an overall better job upkeeping, adding new rides, and better cleanliness around the park.

What restaurant had thee best food?

I give the award to the delicious Skyline Chili. You just cant beat a good ole coney on a good day at Kings Island.

What crew/area was best?

For the second year in a row i give the best Crew/Area to The Beast Crew. I lost my cell phone this year and they were more than helpful in helping me find it.

What show in 2006 was the best in your opinion?

I really didnt go see any shows this year but by judging by the actors and everything i give it to The Nick Celebration Parade. Whenever it goes through it always has a huge crowd to watch it and attracts more people to the park.

What change from 2005 to 2006 was the best?

The best change i think was Nick Universe. Now we will have the best Kids area for many years running.

What roller coaster in your opinion had its best year ever?

The Beast! Even with its slowing over these past years, I don't think I've had so many good rides on it ever before!

What thrill ride in your opinion had its best year ever?

Delirium. After a major break down last year, she is back up and running!

For the park, Son of Beast losing that eyesore they call a loop.

MonsterBash during FearFest.

What change from 2005 to 2006 was the best?

What roller coaster in your opinion had its best year ever?

Adventure Express-the little engine that "could". Seemed like the lines for it were longer this year than I can remember before.

Drop Zone-new paint, always long lines.

It got a new, guest-attracting neighbor (GWL)

Was visited by the show 'Rob & Big': nationwide exposure

What restaurant had the best food?

Rivertown LaRosa's: anything would taste good there! Awesome setting.

BGSS: Food was good, reasonable for what you got, great views.

Ice Cream place in AZ: $3.50 for a Root Beer float is reasonable in an amusement park. Again, great setting.

The girl that greeted me at The Beast was really nice.

Parking people were especially nice.

N/A

I can't answer all those questions fairly as I only got to visit the park one time. I will, however, answer the two that I can.

Best thing that happened at Kings Island: For me, it was riding roller coasters with my kids for the first time. Although my son was limited to The Fairly Odd Coaster, he still had a blast. And for the park, I'm gonna venture saying the Cedar Fair acquisition. I personally was getting tired of all the movie theming and crap and am hoping it (at least most of it) goes away.

Best crew: The Beast Bunch, by far. They were awesome, patient with getting the kids situated, and concerned when the coaster returned with my daughter crying. No less than three of them rushed over to us to see if she was ok (she was, only mad because she didn't get to see "The Beast"). One of the crew even rode with us, I assume as a joy ride before he went home from work or before starting the closing procedures.

Hopefully 2007 will see me leaving more footprints throughout the park and able to answer such questions better, but nothing beats those first time rides with the little ones!
