What should be done with the Paramount Story?

Recommended Posts

Leave it as is for the next few years.

Convert it to Japanese Garden sponsored by Toyota.

Convert it to a Kings Island Museum.

Put a flat ride there.

Something else. What?

Pull the movie stones out and put in picture stones of historical moments at Kings Island

1. Name change to Kings Island Story

2. History of Kings Island by year or major improvements (whether improvements or not, additions if you will)

3. keep the lucious landscaping, it is a magnificent area in a park that has nearly lost them all (insert IJ:ST reference here)

4. Entertain many for years to come while keeping history alive!

That is a great idea butcher. I would love to see that + a hard back book they could sell with more detail and pictures.

It would make a good designated smoking area as well.

Have it as a Kings Island history area. The stones that had the years for Paramount movies could be used for years at the park, and several garden areas and open pathways could be used for old park parts. Like, a King Cobra car could be in that u-turn made from the stones, ect.

Not sure if it was mentioned, but they flipped the stones over to hide the movie titles!

I'm glad that the "Paramount" props are gone. Hopefully CF will make good use of the land.

I thought they sand blasted all of the Parmount movies off. If you walked on then you could tell it was done. Also did anyone else see that water was not in the little lake at the top.

I don`t believe that they sandblasted the stones. It would have created an uneven nature to the surface of the stone, not to mention taken a long time and cost some money. It was just as easy to take the stones up, and flip them over.

I was walking over by it on my way out and i saw that there were no more posters or any names on the stones. I think that they need to make it like a place where guests can go and eat in the shade. Kind of like the old Nature tunnel in Nick Central.

I'd say leave it the way it is for the most part. Maybe put something in there of interest like statues, more plants, etc. but I think the park needs to maintain it as a nice quiet area.

Make the park an outdoor table service cafe, with wine ,candles, and light food. Could be romantic at night.

Honestly if they just had a nice waterfall and some seating areas I think it would be perfect! You could have somewhere to come eat a slice of pizza if you want and just sit back watch the waterfall and relax and take a more relaxed lunch or dinner and get out of the way of some of the loud areas of the park. I know sometimes when im at the park I wish there was a place like this to just relax for a bit, and I love waterfalls ;)

Make the biggest game in the world, an obstacle course themed to an army boot camp where you have to climb swing and shoot your way to victory! :P

I still think this is one of the very few areas of solace left in the park...

The better question is what to do with that horrid looking area behind the Paramount Story...furthest from the tower...the whole area looks like a place backstage that should NOT be visible to guests...the backs of Steelox buildings, weeds, just not something that the guests should be seeing...

Also, note the stars in the concrete at the entrances to the nee Paramount Story...something else that needs to go....

i love the idea of a history of the park walkthrough but i think that if they do that they still need to keep the calmness of the area. make it a place go to relax as well as to get educated

Heres what I might do:

1st - Flat the area out and put a smaller ride there of some sort, there is some of open space in the general area, would hafe to do some work.

2nd - Put a few of the old Cars they took out and use them for a while insted of rusting benind The Racer. ( maybe a temp. thing )

3rd - Have a out side food area, (they could keep it the way it is but maybe extend it a bit out)

4th - A "Meet an Greet Area" but its kinds a way from kiddy land. (A good area of the park they could rope off)

5th - Make it for park use - offices or something sence its behind some storage area and seams like a okay place for something like that.

6th - Move the First Aid Station from Kiddy Land to that area, because there are relly TWO first aid stations in or near kiddy land. Seams like a good idea.

7th - Keep it empty for now untill they have a idea
