  1. Idk about you, but KI having the first ever Giga sized bench would be pretty dope!
  2. Current ride operator here! To address the subject of line jumpers: As you probably already know, line jumping is strictly prohibited at Kings Island. ANYONE who sees line jumping should speak with a ride operator as soon as possible about it. Almost every coaster at Kings Island has a distributer (who tells you what row to go to) and that is usually the first person you can go to when reporting line jumpers. Another way to report line jumpers is to text (513) 434-6337 which will go directly to KI security. Something else I should mention. When guests are reporting line jumpers, there needs to be two or more different parties that saw the suspected line jumping. Only when two or more different parties witness line jumping can the ride operator tell the line jumpers to go to the end of the line and wait their turn. However, if a ride operator sees line jumping for themselves, they will tell the line jumpers to go to the back of the line and wait their turn. Failure by line jumpers to comply in either situation will result in either a ride supervisor to tell them to go to the back of the line or KI security being called. That is how our line jumping policy was explained to me during training.
  3. Figured I'd add some positive reviews lol. I recently tried the burnt ends at Coney BBQ. And as someone who loves a good BBQ, I can confidently say that they've hit the nail on the head! I've now had the burnt ends several times and every time I've had them they've been cooked very good. The little bits of fat melts in your mouth and the sauce on them is just SO GOOD. The hush puppy they give you is also really good (big fan of hush puppies lol). I'd say the best side you can get with the burnt ends is the mac and cheese. All of that combined is very good and its now my go to meal at KI. Very close to the burnt ends in second place is, of course, the pub burger at the Brewhouse. I had my first one of the season last visit before I had to clock in and it was very good as always.
  4. Why did I read this in a Morgan Freeman voice?
  5. Pretty sure a few years back before covid they used part of the path for a haunt maze. I wanna say it was Cornered or something abandoned.
  6. I did it for the first time in 2023. I dont mind it being an upcharge attraction and frankly with my other two friends is one of the most thrilling rides at KI.
  7. The physical path is still there. Only a small sliver of it was torn up for Orion. Wonder if they will ever use it again...
  8. If you look closely at the large window there, they always had a spare horse or two from the carousel on display. I remember my grandparents and I walking past that on our way out of KI every time we visited.
  9. I would imagine so. 2020-2021 we low attendance years because of covid. 2022 started the rebound to pre-covid levels. It just makes sense it would happen for 2023.
  10. Went to Winterfest last Saturday (11/25) and overall the park looks great. Mystic Timbers gave a great ride as usual and I now prefer Sol Spin during Winterfest. The only thing that disappointed me was Flight of Fear only running one train, which I did not ride. Hopefully it will not be like that the entirety of Winterfest. Hot chocolate was good as usual. I still consider Winterfest a good time.
  11. I love how KI is just randomly scheduled to be open Sunday, September 8, 2024, from 10-8 without being open the rest of the weekend.
  12. As a someone who prefers wooden coasters to steel, this is horrible news. Six Flags does not take good care of their wooden coasters for the most part. I pray that Racer, Beast and Mystic Timbers don't fall into the same poor quality that other Six Flags wooden coaster fall into. Hopefully the Cedar Fair side of the merger continues to operate Kings Island and maintains our wood coasters to the same high level they have the last several years. I also want to make very clear that an RMC hybrid of any KI wooden coaster will be a mistake of unfathomable proportions. I am most worried about Beast. Mark my words, if they ever RMC Beast, I will never go to Kings Island again. If they really want to give Kings Island an RMC, build a ground up one. Simple as that. Even removing the wooden coaster aspect, I am worried about what this is going to do to Kings Island. Kings Island is a very special place to a lot of people (I myself included) and the Six Flags branding is going to erode the unique charm of Kings Island and make it feel like every other park. The point is I just don't have a good feeling about this merger from the quality aspect of the park. I have a gut feeling that over the next few years, unless the Cedar Fair side is able to maintain Kings Island the way it has been, we will see Kings Island change not for the better. Change is a part of life, but there is a difference between good change and bad change. I am 100% willing to give this a chance and I am. But there are a thousand ways that this can mess up and I pray that the right decisions are made and not ones that will irreversibly damage Kings Island.
  13. I would 110% LOVE to see this! Also, Id rather do sledding on the waterslides in Soak City than the log flume lol.
  14. Imagine the whole train course COVERED in Christmas lights (especially the woods after the trestle bridge)...even better, imagine that with snow! Anyways lol I sorta agree.
