  1. Got to ride Snoopy's Soapbox Racers today as part of yesterday's ACE silent auction. They sent us around twice so I got to ride it twice and I'll say it is an awesome ride and a great addition and will be a big hit with families! Awesome job to Vekoma and Kings Island! Now I would love to see a Vekoma launch replace Vortex
  2. The Eiffel Tower is currently down due to maintenance reasons. I can't go into anymore details due to obvious reasons, but I do not know when it'll reopen.
  3. I personally wish the park would hit the reset button on all the music in the park. Especially on International Street, Rivertown, and Planet Snoopy. Gosh I can't go into words about how I'm not a fan of the music in either of those areas! Jazz does not belong on International Street, bluegrass covers of Thunderstruck/other metal/rock songs are just a big no to me, and cringey covers of pop songs sang by a kid group just doesn't do it for me!
  4. @malem it opened! Guess @King Ding Dong must not be here today lol
  5. Nobody is surprised at the forecast lol. The 3 things guaranteed in life are: Death, Taxes, and rain at KI spring enthusiast events lol
  6. I turned 21 last June. Also even if I'm not much of a drinker I enjoy the atmosphere of such events and I love when the park hosts events like this!
  7. They'll probably announce that closer to the start of the event. If I were to guess they'll have booths spread out with some in tower gardens and some around the tower and maybe some around the floral clock area. The entertainment and other activities if I were to guess will take place in the grass area near Diamondback's brake shed. I believe when they did the Brewfest years ago they would set up a stage near Diamondback's brake shed.
  8. I was right LOL. I've been predicting/asking for this for awhile now!
  9. It's Screamscape though. I take anything they put out there with a grain of salt. Weren't they the ones who started the Kumba and Ride of Steel getting removed rumors that the perspective parks immediately shot down?
  10. Honestly I think it will look like this imo. It's easy to set up and wouldn't take long to set up. It would also work in AZ since AZ has no specific theme lol.
  11. Plus it would be an easy area to block off for a wine tasting area so only those 21+ can go in there. They could then have the food/family activities around the tower/carousel area.
  12. Another thing I thought I'd mention is Canada's Wonderland is introducing a new Food and Wine Festival that will run on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in June. I think something like that could work in and around Tower Gardens, the Tower, and the Carousel. Also probably doesn't mean anything, but if you look in the background on the festival page they have Orion instead of Leviathan lol https://www.canadaswonderland.com/events/food-and-wine-festival
  13. Epcot does this event called the International Flower and Garden Festival. Personally I think something along the lines of that could fit here if KI wants to do something similar. Also Mike Koontz at Coasterstock last year said they're looking into potentially doing something in May and June. Link to Epcot festival: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/epcot/epcot-international-flower-and-garden-festival/
  14. I checked the itinerary and there isn't anything listed about Tower Gardens.
  15. The park shared this interesting message on their Instagram story. It seems like tower gardens is going to be utilized for a future event. Could KI be getting a surprise new event after all? Or are they going to do early prep for Carnivale? (which isn't until late July btw). Idk, but this will be something interesting to watch.
  16. Personally I would rather 2025 be focused on general park improvements and prep for 2026 Vortex replacement (if it does indeed come in 2026). With the last 2 additions (Camp Snoopy and Adventure Port) not opening with the park for the season, I would rather let the park get a head start on construction for The Vortex replacement like KD is doing this year with the Volcano replacement that way it can open with the park the next spring. Plus I kinda like it when the whole season is focused on park improvements (see the 50th year) and especially when they are prepping for a new big attraction. Those seasons outside of the season a big new addition opens are some of my favorite seasons. 2019 was one of my favorite seasons for this reason as it focused on general park improvements along with a very minor but much needed addition with Antique Autos along with the introduction of Grand Carnivale and then throughout the season see the construction and buildup for Orion come together really made for a fantastic season and personally I would prefer 2025 to be more like 2019 than having a decent size addition like a dark ride or flat ride package. A Soak City slide would be a fairly minor addition like Antique Autos, but with the rumors of Cedar Point and Valleyfair adding to their waterparks next year, I'm starting to doubt 2025 is Soak City's year.
  17. So @King Ding Dong must not be in the park today....
  18. Now will it only be open when @King Ding Dong is not in the park?
  19. Where exactly in/around Action Zone/the park are these located?
  20. Before anyone asks, NO I have nothing to do with this... https://www.wcpo.com/money/consumer/dont-waste-your-money/kings-island-hints-at-major-new-roller-coaster-with-survey?fbclid=IwZXh0bgNhZW0CMTEAAR1sG8fi_bQBMdXj1Ckk8hA8LhToGXfsdrAEI1rHYTGgH1YI_nIb9s1_xeo_aem_AUQKRkyQ2iaQhuRMgkEU1Sll2rKc4VgB0L9SQQargxmM_CSFFx7YKuXEvuSDBqofc33mxBwNNg9iZT-JpuT7nbPo
  21. He's talking about a survey in 2021. Here's the thread from then:
  22. I'm sure that was a fun offseason to be an Ohio thoosie with the development of Nick Universe as well as Skyhawk and the early development of Maverick at CP. I was 3 and in my first year of preschool at the time and wasn't into KI at the time. I didn't start being that interested in KI until a few years later lol so obviously I have no memory of this. You know whats kinda funny is there are sorta some parallels between this season and the 2006 season with KI opening an expanded kids area and the upcoming potential Six Flags merger that sounds very similar to 2006 with the Nick U expansion and the CF aquisition that summer. Makes me wonder if we're about to see history repeat itself (I hope not as Camp Snoopy looks so nice).
  23. Came across this old commercial from 2006. Anyone remember this commercial from back then? Also I had no idea the area behind Surf Dog (then Avatar) was known as "Dora's Explorer Corner" which makes sense seeing how the rides back there were themed around Dora the Explorer lol
