  1. Possibly as early as preview night. If, as I believe (but without verifiable proof), there is a new coaster coming in 2020, I think there will literally be signs when the park opens this season. Signs like these for Mystic Timbers (long before we knew what it would be): Not too much longer and we’ll at least know reasonably for sure if something is coming or not. But, beyond that, actual construction schedule? Anyone who /could/ tell us, wouldn’t.
  2. Don’t forget the triple-down into the station on Adventure Express (per the map)
  3. That’s a good point, and I really hope so. The Jukebox has been looking a little worn the past couple years, but has the potential of being beautiful, especially at night.
  4. I miss the area-themed uniforms
  5. A fair few of us who would otherwise be interested in volunteering will be busy with other things that day
  6. If access for both Urgent Scare and Field of Screams were moved to the other side of Racer (off of X-Base), I think there is plenty path to access Vortex, WindSeeker, and those restrooms.
  7. I could swear I saw that they offer that service now... off to search the faq to see if I can find mention of it Maybe it was just the artisan village during Winterfest?
  8. Long story? They put up an insulating wall that blocks off some of the windows to make the building warmer during Winterfest. It has been taken back off and is sitting in front of the building waiting to be put into storage presumably.
  9. I like that they’ve inset the table seating on international street to the area surrounding the fountains. More out of the path, but a very pleasant place to eat.
  10. I don’t know who this is originally from, but this is the source I saw: As I recall, someone had looked again later and it was changed
  11. Considering it’s nearly 3/4 of the way there before KI has even started teasing anything, I’d have to say it’s almost guaranteed to hit 200 pages this year. I wouldn’t be surprised with 300.
  12. ^this year in particular. The tropical smoothie stand was open more often than not when I went by this summer. I don’t think I saw the Coke freestyle in the train station open more than 20 times out of 70 visits.
  13. There’s something AI bot about that post isn’t there?
  14. I know of people who signed up for a previous blog meetup using different names but the same email. They only got one copy of the email but both names were on the list when it came to the day of the meetup. So you should be fine.
  15. Welcome to KIC! I think you're right that this is something that could use some work. I feel that Rivertown is actually decently spot-on with its theme, though.
  16. And maybe if we're lucky, to replace the remaining areas of asphalt inside the park.
  17. If that's what you meant, I think you meant "wasn't" instead of "was" or "always" instead of "never".
  18. Ok, so if anyone wants to cue speculation, that is super suspicious
  19. Here's why I think, aesthetically, it would make more sense to put a Giga at X-Base/Coney, over Action Zone: the view; both of the park, and from the coaster. Putting a huge coaster at the front of the park would really dominate the skyline, in a negative way, in my opinion. Also, from the ride, what would there be to see? The parking lot! Great Wolf Lodge! The greenhouses! The new dorms! Alternately, it could be set back into those gorgeous woods that surround Kings Island. Make use of the varied terrain. I know which I'd prefer. I do realize that SoB was a huge coaster situated at the front of the park. I feel that location was one of many mistakes made in the planning of that coaster.
  20. The little greenhouse itself had been set up outside the customer service call room, near Graeters, in past weeks, but was moved under the tower this weekend. When I was there Friday (and when I saw it in the former location previously) I didn't notice it being used beyond being an interesting bit of theming.
  21. Does anyone know what this was all about? Surprisingly for a Sunday, we found these costumed performers under the Eiffel Tower. They were dressed, as far as I can tell, as bronze statues of the Wicked Witch and a Flying Monkey from Wizard of Oz. They were standing like statues with their backs to the majority of the crowds. When people tried to speak with them they did not respond aside from moving their eyes. There were no professional photos or video being taken (which I originally thought would make a little sense). They didn't have any non-costumed employees as handlers so far as I could see, as I would have expected. And it was sooooo hot, I was boiling in shorts and a t-shirt, so I can only imagine how bad it was in full body costume and either full face paint (the witch) or full face/head mask (the flying monkey). I just really don't understand why they would send out costumed characters to a semi-obscure location where they aren't even interacting with guests, on a Sunday, without support staff, on a ridiculously hot day. Did these two performers anger someone and this is their punishment? Another oddity is that I don't recall seeing any similar characters (either "statues" or Wizard of Oz) during actual Haunt nights, at least not since the statues of Cemetery Drive a few years ago when International Street was a scare zone.
  22. I've been told there is a restroom in the building where Chaos is held. So there's at least some water and sewage capabilities in the area. The cost of putting restrooms there, even if there wasn't already any infrastructure, pales in comparison to the price of a possible Giga, however.
