Enjoy. The wife and I got lucky, the grandparents offered to keep our little ones all evening. Going to be a little different being able to experience the park without 2 little ones and spending 90% of our time in Planet Snoopy.

Glad to read the good reviews of Mystic Timbers. Looking forward to riding it later this summer. When I first read what was in the shed Verbolten came to mind.

It will be a STRUGGLE to pick night rides! Beast, Diamondback, Banshee, and Bat are all excellent night rides and now you throw Timbers into the mix. I'll have to pick a midnight closing and get a fast lane to hit em all.


As for KI that is probably the best type of struggle to have. Having done Beast, Diamondback and Bat at night I'm going to have to fight how to fit Banshee and Timbers night rides in my visit.

That's great! And what a simple idea to figure out.
"Entertain the incoming train, while it's waiting to disembark."
So easy, I'm surprised a park hadn't figured it out till now.

Good going, Kings Island!
And thanks for the dramatic reveal, Robb! :)

Same here and loved all the Beast, Diamondback (without seat belts) and Bat night rides!

Looks like I'll have to find a babysitter for my kiddos who aren't tall enough and try to sneak in a bunch of rides or see if I can get multiple days at KI soon.
Roller Coasters, Fireworks, and Kobe Beef, oh my!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Hmmm. I rode it back in 1995, after Memorial Day weekend.

I remember being able to actually turn my body in the seat. No head rests. A lap bar.

And that dash through the woods after the first drop --- :omg:

And then I had the good fortune for our train to stop mid-way on 2nd lift --- :cry:
My fear of heights was still not done with me, back then. Very short time. But I panicked good.

A fun ride back then. :wink:
