  1. Hi, I had a pretty simple question regarding season passholder parking benefits. This is sorta going off of how with a Gold Pass at Kings Island it will only grant you entry into the park once per day and you will need a hand-stamp to enter again afterwards that same day. Is there a limit to how many times I can enter the parking lot with a gold pass? Main reason I'm asking is because during the Coasterstock event I plan on leaving the park in the late afternoon to recuperate at our hotel room for an hour or two before going back to the park for rest of the day. I'm not entirely sure if this is allowed or not, which is why I'm asking. Doesn't really saying you can't in the https://www.visitkingsisland.com/legal/season-pass-terms but always doesn't directly say you can - "Gold Pass entitles the Passholder to complimentary parking ONLY at the park from which it was issued at the following Cedar Fair L.P. amusement parks; however, the registered Passholder must be present in the vehicle" Thanks in advance
  2. one from Cedar Point: "Yesterday I rode wicked twister and the person next to me FELL OUT and DIED… never riding a coaster again…" in line for Diamondback opening day: "How tall is this ride??" "It's tall enough that you DIE at the bottom!!!" "REALLY??? WHY IS IT OPEN?" honorary mention to people who add "The" to every ride The Flight of Fear The Diamondback The Orion The Invertigo The Adventure Express The The Beast (I've heard it once!)
  3. I believe the park will go one of three routes with this. 1. The Steel Vengeance route - What slingshot? There never was a slingshot. Never existed. That's always been a concrete slab. 2. Formally announce it's removal for "service life" or something along that line with no current replacement down the road 3. Announce it's being replaced with a new one? Sad to see it go of course, one less flat in the already low collection of flats, but was fun to watch. I never rode it, not big into upcharge attractions like that. Always seemed to have a line whenever I did see it operating.
  4. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if we saw WindSeeker open sometime this week.
  5. Beast is back to the huge crowd pleaser it once was, it'll be pretty busy all season! I'm glad to see the queue so full. Haunt will be crazy...
  6. Seems like a lot of schools/students have left already and/or are leaving
  7. Got a photo by chance? Would love to see the new layout
  8. It is not open. It was up at the top earlier in the morning, but they moved it down. Didn't catch when, but at least before 3pm.
  9. Charles Dinn and Al Collins would find it very fitting if they were still with us today.
  10. Question for previous Coasterstock attendees What were the lines like during the morning/night ERT sessions? I'm mainly curious as what to expect with wait times during those. Are they station waits, 10-20 minutes? Thanks in advance.
  11. Park stated on Twitter that they will be releasing a new POV around early summer, so I suspect mid to late May up to early June.
  12. Coasterstock itinerary is now officially listed on the Kings Island site. See here: https://www.visitkingsisland.com/events/coasterstock
  13. Wouldn't be surprised if GG came back again to do work in that part of the ride. Relations are good. Would be funny if we got a ground-up extreme Gravity Group Woodie in The Vortex spot. An IOE electrical engineer confirmed they did updated controls. Like opening day, but for Beast. Ride Ops are getting a feel for the ride and will be back to pumping trains out over the next few days of operations. I love reading all these positive reviews, makes me even more hyped for Coasterstock!
  14. Either way, that's pretty interesting!
  15. Oh really they added a bunny hill? Wish they uploaded a new POV
  16. Sounds like it’s somewhat spooky! I wouldn’t be surprised if LOE took a shot at updating controls.
  17. Got my custom Discord bot announcing live wait-times when it opens tomorrow. While I can't be at the park until the 20th, I will be watching from afar as I have been for the past couple of weeks. Just a little longer!
  18. yeah I wasn't expecting them to remove any, but had some hope we might see them reduced or pushed back farther into the layout
  19. IT HAPPENED also: UGH theres a trim
  20. We may see a soft opening on Mother’s Day, I’m predicting myself it’ll open around next weekend-ish. A prediction nonetheless, so take that how you will.
  21. Might be getting an official video teasing Beast drop. AHHHH THIS IS GREAT NEWS
  22. So it indeed was testing again on Sunday, that's good to hear.
  23. I do not believe it valleyed. Now it may have valleyed, we can't really tell from what info we have. The videos show the train making it through the course fine, so I have no idea where that rumor is coming from.
  24. Given we know it had a train on the brake run on Friday (29th) and not on the previous Sunday (24th), we can assume it started sometime between Monday and Friday. I’m leaning more towards Wednesday to Friday, so construction likely finished last weekend (24th of April). I have a video on the ground taken by a park guest recording them testing one train during the parks operating hours. One train ops with water dummies making laps basically, then the following day maintenance staff were on the lift hill periodically with reports of trains running the course. While I myself am unaware of an exact opening day, it feels like this day continues to approach us quickly.
  25. Big thank you to CPFoodBlog for these images
