  1. I just went this past Sunday for the 1st time this year. I actually felt way safer than at Walmart (where I work). We wore masks to get in the park, inside buildings. We also put them on when we had a 20 minute downpour the hour before it closed for the night (was at the game stations across from Firecracker). It wasn't crowded which I was pleased about. It made wait times very short and I loved the Inline System! I hope they keep the concept. Although Voyage had a wait for 45 minutes and to only see 3 people on 1 train was strange because I'm used to full trains. Wish I could be at Holiwood N
  2. My hubby hasn't ridden a roller coaster ever I don't believe. Raven was 1st one i ever rode. Those Orion and Diamondback restraints freak me out too much to ride them. I know I'm safe but just can't do those.
  3. I got him on Wildebeest the year it opened. He acted like he enjoyed it but he says he didn't like the "airtime" feeling. It's been awhile since I rode them but are the straps anywhere behind us or are they in front? I have gotten an all clear to ride but my right shoulder doesn't move like it used to anymore.
  4. I'd say heights. I struggled getting him on Frightful Falls. I was impressed he went up the Eiffel Tower at Kings Island but I couldn't get him to walk over to look down. On the other hand, I told my friends we're going next summer so they can ride them with me. Wildebeest has been my #1 ride since it opened.
  5. Does anybody plan on going August 9th or 10th from the board? It's the only times we are in Indiana and my husband hates the water coasters.
  6. Thinking of making my 1st trip to the park in August. Luckily the day we'll be swinging by is a day they're open. I haven't been since May 2019 and I'm excited to finally have an all clear to ride the rides (spent the last operating season in a sling)!
  7. Is that open to the public or just us passholders? Either way I'll be there that day and can represent the forum if need be. I'm excited for new ride announcements especially a big coaster!
  8. I can't wait to go and ride this. I'm actually thinking of getting season passes and I'm 5 hours away. Can anybody tell where this might be located?? Is it near the other 2??
  9. Going to Kings Island for the 1st time since my accident. It sucks knowing I can't ride much (don't want to overdo it) but glad it's almost Haunt time.
  10. I had no idea where to post but the Fireball accident at the Ohio State Fair in 2017 has claimed another victim. My local news is reporting it as we speak. I know rides can be dangerous at a fair or amusement park but as a park visitor I have trust that the secured locks/restrains will work. I know when I was at Kings Island a few weeks ago there was a kid let on a ride that he was obviously to short to ride. I don't remember which rode but O was shocked they let him on. https://www.10tv.com/article/teen-injured-ohio-state-fair-ride-accident-dies
  11. Well my friends and I went to Kings Island but didn't get there until 1:30-2pm. We spent the majority of our time in the waterpark since it was hot and sunny. We ended up doing both wave pools, the family raft ride, sand volleyball court and the lazy river, which we did 6 laps. One thing though, the waterslide with the whole family is a bit rough of a landing when you bounce in the air. I'll take Holiday World's version 10x over Kings Island's. The tornado waterslide we didn't ride cause I've done it quite a bit at Splashin Safari. Then it was to the dry park. Only coasters we got on was The
  12. When should you line up for a night ride on any of them? I also have a friend that will be with us and she's worried about not fitting on certain rides..I know Banshee has a test seat but does the Beast? She's really hoping to be able to fit into it.
  13. Will anybody be at Kings Island on Wednesday or next Sunday? Hopefully it doesn't rain again. We've only been able to go 3 times this year so far and it's kind of disappointing that every time I have a day off it tends to rain/storm. I'm needing some more rides in and a couple more waterpark visits before the season is over. I've stated before that I think it would be nice to have some sort of water coaster in the waterpark even though it wouldn't compare to Wildebeest and Mammoth at HW. The dry park needs a tilt a whirl at some point. Those are my favorite flat rides at a theme park.
  14. Since I didn't make it to Kings Island today (rain was in the forecast) Thunderbird at Holiday World! Can't get enough of it!
  15. What have the lines been like for SV? I currently have a Friday thru Monday off next month and possibly thinking of going to Cedar Point for the first time. I know the park gets crazy busy and I'm pretty sure a fast lane/plus would be needed as well. I know if we end up going we're looking into staying at HB and getting the early entry as well. Our other option is to go back to Holiday World for that Saturday and Sunday and I know their Saturdays are beyond busy as well!
  16. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary when I was there on Saturday but then again I wasn't really trying to look. It was packed even though it was overcast. I see why they say to avoid Saturdays in July. If they wanna add amything, I think one of those boat rides that they used to have at Dollywood. I think it's a splash battle and it would be a great fit for the waterpark. For the dry park, I'd love to see another couple of classic rides, a gravitron or a whip. I know it's now for a stunt show but what ride do you wanna see there?
  17. What is the rain policy? Anybody been there when it's rainy? Should I wear ponchos? I've been to other parks and it shuts down completely in rain. Last year when I visited, it rained for 30 minutes and it was good to go.
  18. Anybody at the park today and know why Delerium (sp?)was closed? Wes and I wemt about 6-7 hours and when we got there it was not packed. It could've been the fact that they were calling for rain but I liked no long waits for rides that I rode anyway. I got to talking to my cousin and she loves Mystic Timbers as well so next time I go she can ride with me as I don't like riding by myself. We did ride the rapids ride once and that water was so cold and I got freaking drenched but we was headed to water park afterwards so it didn't matter. Out of the flats they have I love the scrambler, windseek
  19. Anybody heading to Kings Island tomorrow? My husband and I have season passes this year and will be there for a few hours at least. Is the 30 minute early entry worth it? It looks to be a nice day for a change in the area and was also wondering if school groups would be there?
  20. Any recommendations on where to stay a couple of nights for Holiday World. We've never stayed in a hotel cause my family lives 2.5 hours away but this time we're planning on being there 2 days in a row. Where's a good place to stay?
