KIC Local (2/13)



  1. Wow! 20oz beers at KI for $4!!
  2. Why would they NOT use DC? They (now) own the rights to it! They would be crazy not to use it. Probably a reason they bought Six Flags! Also, I would MUCH rather have Looney Toons for the kids areas rather than the lame, boring, Charlie Brown crap that no kid even knows what the heck it even is. One of the lamest things that Cedar Fair partnered with...
  3. There is NEVER a such thing as a "merger" no matter what bull**** line of sunshine they blow at people. I've been at companies that have been bought and sold and supposedly "merged"... Someone is ALWAYS buying the other. Cedar Fair has BOUGHT Six Flags. PERIOD. New name (for whatever reason) is Six Flags. Bloomberg website says Cedar Fair bought Six Flags for 1.9 billion.
  4. Got the ALL PARK upgrade to our Kings Island passes for next year. Should we do a trip to Dorney Park or Worlds of Fun? Both are ~9hrs from Cincinnati. Had platinum passes last in 2017 and did Carowinds, Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Knotts Berry Farm, and Canada's Wonderland. Definitely plan to do some of those again as well...
  5. Went to Cedar Point last weekend for the first time since 2017 and was SO excited to get an Elephant Ear again back in the back western town area and they don't have them anymore!!
  6. WHERE are Elephant Ears at K.I.??!! Super excited if you are correct!
  7. B Y O... That's what (plastic) flasks are for!
  8. I'm still hoping for an RMC RAPTOR (single rail) coaster there. Like Jersey Devil, etc. Fun ride, nice compact layout, and a massive "line eater" since it never stops moving even in the station!! Super cool. Anyone have any idea why Cedar Fair only has ONE rmc raptor in all their parks?? (California's Great America).
  9. I'd be ok with that idea of "original" / non-franchise places on International Street. But good luck getting rid of Starbucks! Why it's there in the first place blows my mind...
  10. Holy crap! Can you IMAGINE what the line at the INSANELY SLOW (painfully inefficient) Skyline in Coney Mall will look like now??? You could tell Subway was on the way out, but super shocked at ChickFilA. It was ALWAYS packed! Except on Sundays...

  12. Wow. Totally "backwards" (upside down?) direction on this one in my opinion. As dilapidated as Adventure Express has become on theming, would it really have been that hard to re theme it to some German/Black Forest idea, simply change the burrito place's food, and revamp/reincorporate this area as "Oktoberfest"?? I mean they are even putting the spinning beer barrel ride back in for God's sake!! Hello! What a missed opportunity rather than creating a completely NEW area. I feel like someone in Sandusky (or California?) came up with this idea and had no concern for what is already right there... Just silly. I'm glad they're doing SOMETHING, just such as ass-backward decision on how to do it.
  13. Not sure WHY. But ORION was shut down again at ~9:15 last Friday night and I don't think it re opened that night. We got in line for it about 9:05. They only had the first set (right hand side) of turnstiles open, but they were full. After being in line but maybe 5min, we heard an announcement that it would close at 9:45 for the fireworks, but the way the line was moving we thought for sure we'd make it. At ~9:15~9:20 the stopped ruining trains and announced they were having technical difficulties. At about 9:30 I saw an operator (maybe it was a maintenance person) walking out on the track side walkway over to the break run. I was directly under that area and couldn't tell if a rain with passengers was stopped there or what was going on. We abandoned the line at that point and headed to the Eiffel Tower to watch the fireworks. I kept looking over at the lift hill, I don't think it ever ran again that night. I assume it was open on Saturday? Btw, it was GREAT how moderate the crowd was on Friday evening!
  14. I hope they repaint all the FOOTPRINTS for the re opening! They are VERY faded...
