  1. Kings Island Central came into existence in 2003. Dane Thomas, who started the website, just wanted a place to host pictures of the park. Kings Island Central quickly grew in popularity faster than anyone could have imagined. Over the years, Kings Island Central has grown exponentially and has become one of the very few dedicated fan and forum websites left in the industry. Kings Island Central continues to thrive even with the increased use of social media. Media Director Brad Perdue continues to keep Kings Island Central's content relevant. He keeps the main website updated by adding park history in real time and adding hundreds of photos every year to our vast collection of photo galleries. As Brad continued to add more photos, and the forums continued to grow, we started to max out our space on the current server. Brad ran the server out of space multiple times during the documentation of Adventure Port and the 2023 season. At that point, Brad and Matthew Middleton, the KIC Website Director, knew they had to do something to keep the website going. In late 2023, we started with a fresh web server and picked out a new theme to build out our main website. We have been working since then to rebuild the current website pages into the new website and give them a modern look. Our original graphic designer, Lee, also took our vision for the website and created the new logos. https://kicentral.com/ The Kings Island Central Admin Team hopes you enjoy the new website and find it easier to navigate and find the vast information contained on our website.

  2. Looks amazing! So glad to be a part of the Kings Island fan community. We have something there that no other amusement park has to my knowledge. A strong fan base that loves this park and loves the attractions both current and defunct that have operated here over the many years. KICentral is a way not only to learn about and discuss the park but also to connect with fellow amusement park fans who all have one thing in common - we love Kings Island and the amusement park industry!

  7. Yes I love this design myself. Sounds like everyone worked as a team to bring this to life. As a Computer Graphic Design graduate, I love the way this looks from that perspective too! I have to agree with what robintodd said above me!

  8. From following Carowinds' own FB as well as their fanbase, RMC means Routine Maintenance from Carowinds. They've been doing in-house retracking on Hurler and I'm guessing they're cleverly squashing actual RMC rumors. I can't find it anymore, but I think they're also reverting Vortex back to red and black.

  9. I think it is more of a joke than a hint. If I was wrong I would not be upset.

  11. Very unfortunate chain of events. This park is plagued by the fact that it's in a smaller community with larger parks nearby and the fact that it just doesn't have much going for it at all. I personally think that they need to review their operating system. For example, could they do something similar to stickers grove in Ross, OH? Only be open for private events and maybe a few holidays? Coaster enthusiasts obviously want the leap the dips credit but if it wasn't for having the world's oldest rollercoaster, this park would have closed long ago. I'm very thankful to have gotten the credits in 2022 on both leap the dips and skyliner. Skyliner is actually a pretty good wooden coaster for its age and size.

  12. Not only that, but unless they can come up with more than $8M to buy it (or more than that local restaurant does in an entire year if not two or more years), it just seems like there are better causes. But I guess if it stirs up more business for the local Salem Gardens and they overall make more money than they would on a typical February Saturday to offset donating a dollar for every coney purchased, then it is worth it to them.....as long as the pro-concert crowd doesn't try to cancel them and boycott them....

  13. I was wondering why there's not really any merch for Top Gun/Flight Deck/The Bat? Found pictures of this shirt online but don't see it for sale anywhere unfortunately. Flight Deck is what it always was when I was a kid and that is a really cool T-shirt design!
