    • Orion Kings Island Oct 24th! TP posted earlier 
    • Knott’s posted this on their socials. Announcement tomorrow. I am sure it is about their presumed Christmas/Holiday food event!
    • Why was it a let down? We visited a few months ago in summer and it was running as great as ever. will be back next week and hope it'll be great again!
    • it would be nice if they had that part of the park open for HITP (if it ever happened) but the Moose on the Loose area of the park is closed down for Halloween, so I'd guess they would just keep that area closed (That said, Moose on the Loose in the snow would be great)
    • This is why you go on Sundays in October. Saturdays at Hershey always seem to be insane. Candy had a 2 hour line at opening when we were there a few weeks ago (on a Sunday) but everything else was 15-25 minutes. Later in the day Candy was down to 20 minutes.
    • A zierer Starshape seems like a pretty big deal. Not common around here at all. 
    • 2 hours for most coasters? Ouch 
    • I wonder how far out the entrance the line for Candymonium extended for that line! I admittedly started with it when I visited Hersheypark on a weekday over the summer since it was the main reason for me visiting and I wanted to make sure I rode it just in case it went down (even though it was unlikely considering it was a B&M hyper).  Almost the entire queue building was filled and I think that took 60 minutes.
    • Great Adventure has quite a bit of security too at night.  And on both my HallowFest visits this year, I saw fights break out in the parking lot so it was definitely warranted.
    • SFA had all those marijuana and horseplay signs too. With the weather it was pretty dead last night, but they still had Saturday level security which was pretty funny. There was a security guard or cop for probably every 12 park patrons. Never seen anything like it.
    • Queue Times says it topped out at 75 minutes, which means if you waited 4 hours for Candymonium then you deserved to stand there for that entire time and suffer for your bad decision making.
    • I am curious to know what the Skyrush wait was at that time. 
    • It would be faster and a better use of your time to leave the park, drive to the airport, fly to Orlando, Uber to Seaworld and ride Mako than to wait 4 hours for Candymonium...   (Or you could just ride Skyrush)
    • If Holiday in the Park at Darien Lake ever becomes a thing I demand a POV of Moose on the Loose in the snow...
    • So we finally got to Kings Island. Everytime we planned on going in the past something would come up that would prevent us from going. We went Saturday the 24th. Thank goddess for fast lane! It was also our first experience with funpix. We have avoided parks this summer that required masks but with how chilly it was the mask was actually nice to keep the cold air off my face.    We started the day off with Banshee. I have never met a B&M invert that I did not love..... Until this ride. The vest got tighter and tighter throughout the ride. I have been on all 5 coasters in America with the vest and they are not for me. It also had a vibration that I am not used to on inverts. I could see how the layout would be very good otherwise sadly.    Next was the Bat. This was a very fun coaster. Good swinging. Way better then Iron Dragon which is my only other suspended coaster.    Invertigo and Adventure express opened late so headed over to the Racer. We did the blue and red side. I found it to be a pretty smooth ride given its age. Decent pops of air!   Orion was next. My first ride was underwhelming. My later ride which was a fastlane walk on was better. It had warmed up and felt fast. Smoothest coaster in the park. Someone else said it best that it is a gentle giant. First drop is steeper than I anticipated. First drop and speed hill were best parts of the ride   Backlot stunt coaster was the surprise hit of the day. That death delix out of the launch was great. This would be a perfect coaster for spinning cars    Flight of fear was fun. Launch was good. First cobra roll and ending corkscrew were great. Everything in the middle didn't do much. Rougher than other premier coasters that I have rode. But Banshee and Diamondback were also rougher than their counterparts so theme of the park lol    Beast is a legend among gp and enthusiasts. A ride so big in lore, The world's longest wooden coaster. Broke every record out when it opened............Was not for me. Grouperut me on a rear wheel seat and I felt every bump and pothole. Between the trims, and rough ride and lack of any airtime this was a one and done for me. I can see how it could be fun with some drinks and a night ride but a midday sunny ride did not live up to the hype   Mystic TImbers was my most anticipated ride in the park and it did not disappoint. Had a bunch of quick transitions and quick pops of airtime. I am torn between this and Orion as the best ride in the park. I am leaning towards Mystic though!    Diamondback was fun. Grouper actually gave us back seat. Had a noticeable rattle but did not take away from the ride. Had that nice classic floater air these are known for. Third best ride in the park after Mystic and Orion. The hammerhead turn around felt more forceful then others I have ridden    Adventure Express was a neat mind train. Liked the theming on the final chain lift    Invertigo was fun. I used my SLC trick, I hold my head all the way forward out of the restraint to avoid any head banging. I am sure I look stupid but makes them good rides. I would say most forceful ride in the park    Skyline chilli lived up to the hype. We had a 3 sample tasting card in our group. We tried pizza and cupcakes with the pizza being the better selection    We walked away with way too much merch. Great Merchandise in this park. Sorry I had my phone in a locker most of the day so not a lot of pictures Very very very nice park. Easily in my top 3 Cedar Fair parks. I hope to return soon  -- GRSUPERCITY
