  1. I can understand why you hated reading this if you havnt been looking around on the forums but...click here
  2. A Screamscape source has been at it again by taking a peek at what could very well be the 2008 park map. Two things the report mentions is that Congo Falls will go back to its original name Amazon Falls and that the entertainment lineup will include Endless Summer on Ice in the International Showplace and that for the first time in over a decade the Festhaus will offer two new shows for the season. For more information click here
  3. It got stuck at the top with people on it? Yes and i couldnt figure out why but im glad i wasnt on any of those cycles, i would have been scared to death
  4. Are they doing Spirit song this year? I had heard a rumor they weren't As far as i know they will be doing Spirit Song again this year. I dont know why they wouldnt, that festival is one of the BIGGEST money makers for the park and its one of the busiest times of the year (not to scare anybody away from the park at that time) so not only does the park make money from tickets to the concerts, but it makes a substantial amount of money in food, games, etc.
  5. I did notice a lot when i was at the park after they opened it back up that it was getting stuck at the top more than normal which i think was the reason for the downtime that it had especially toward the end of the season. I remember in September and October combined i counted about 6 or 7 times it was down because it got stuck at the top which i didnt think was normal. I dont remember exactly why it wasnt spinning but i do remember hearing that the spinning will be back this season
  6. GO GIANTS!!! I am surprised they won but IMO Eli Manning deserves to be in the superbowl the way he has played the past couple of weeks
  7. the scrolling signs at the entrance have been kept on i believe because i remember going by a couple of weeks ago to see if the new sign was up and i saw that they were on so who knows what the deal is with the signs being on.
  8. My favorite pic i cant put on here because its on my phone but this is another one of my favorite pics from '07 from KIC Day. It was my first time going on those kind of tours and i had a great time. Im hoping we do it again next year

    ki opens

    April 19th will be opening day, the 23rd is a Wednesday and the park probably would never open on a Wednesday.
  10. The quality of the food i gave a 4 because to me the quality wasnt too bad. Dont get me wrong it could always use improvement but to me quality not as bad as what everybody says.(Ive seen lots worse) The selection i gave a 3. This spot needs improvement. The park will not make money off of just burgers, hot dogs, and pizza. If they continue to do what they did before the 07 season by adding a couple of new restaurants with something different like they did with Panda Express it would be great. Now on to the service. Where do you start there is too much to say about it. Like people have said you barely got greeted if at all, sometimes you didnt even get service, and when you did get service the employees would be really rude to you by complaining if something wasnt right for you and i heard numerous cuss words said by the employees and they acted like they didnt even care. I ate at most of the food places at KI and i thought the best service was the Stunt Crew Grill in Action Zone. That crew did a really nice job compared to other places, they gave you service, got you through the line quickly with your food, and were overall nice people no matter what was going on. The service in the food department at Kings Island has got to improve by next season because 07 was a really poor year and they should feel a shamed of themselves for how poorly they acted this year. Sorry to anybody here on KIC that may have worked in the food department i dont mean to harm any of you but something has to be done because this season was HORRIBLE!!!
  11. Whats even worse is that I was standing in line back in like September of this year and a lady on a train being dispatched didnt even know she was on SoB until the operator said have a great ride on Son of Beast. Its amazing how many people get things screwed up around the park. I can understand if you don't visit often but if your live in or around Mason area and youve been to the park and still don't know about some things that have happened at the park something is wrong
  12. I went around 31 times this year. Could've been 33 but i lost my wallet on the Friday before the last weekend, 10-26. A total of around 306 total rides and 12 HH attractions (always went to HH on Saturdays)
  13. So does that mean if the B&M coaster rumors are true that it will have trims. I sure hope not but it could be a strong possibility

    Yeah i pretty much figured it wasnt i just kindve wanted to make a point of if it were even sinking it wouldnt sink as much as ERICTD1411 said
  15. derek9312


    If Vortex were sinking i highly doubt its a few inches every year. Im sure it wouldnt sink all but maybe an inch is what i would think. Here come The Vortex sinking posts again.
  16. I could be wrong, but on every hill after the turn around, I think I see trims. I hope I'm wrong, but thats what I see. Anyoune want to prove me wrong, I would love that. Unfortunatly we cant prove you wrong because i also see what appear to be trims. Although that is only a video of what its supposed to look like and not what it will look like exactly.
  17. Im also 20 minutes but amazed at how many times you went. Likegamesguy08 said some employees dont even work that much and people that actually live in Mason that are 5 minutes away from the park and even sometimes less dont even go to the park that much. I only managed about 35 visits

    Got Wood?

    The Beast no doubt is my favorite
  19. Mine is Stunt Crew Grill for the cheeseburger with fries basket. Boy do i love those waffle fries dipped in ranch dressing.
  20. Basketball season for me is starting so i will be doing that until February while doing my school work and posting on KIC
  21. So, is it fair to say you live in Land of Goshen? --The Interpreter, running for the door Its not Land of Goshen anymore its Warrior Nation now.
  22. I live in Goshen about 20 minutes away from KI. Off topic but go Warriors tomorrow night in playoff game number 1 against Lemon-Monroe
  23. Well done and a lot better than last year. Torture Chamber and Dead Awakening arent that bad and the new mazes were set up quite well IMO especially Club Blood considering it didnt seem like thay had the most time to get it set up. Didnt go through Death Row due to the line but it looked and sounded good so that is one for next year.
