  1. I don't usually editorialize on this site but...red, white, and blue was what The Racer was painted for for 20 seasons. It was hardly just the Brady Bunch that saw the ride in that state.
  2. I do not mean to spam this thread. But the park shared this beautiful photo of the status of The Racer's new (old) paint scheme. This is not a photo from 1972--this is a photo from today! https://www.instagram.com/p/Cbs6P-tJzCy/
  3. The water wheel has returned on Race For Your Life Charlie Brown (the log flume). It's an original feature of the ride and was removed around 2005 or so.
  4. Some theming is finally being added back to the train. More reversals of Paramount damage. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2022/march/k.i.--miami-valley-railroad-part-of-kings-islands-ride-refurbishment-program-for-50th-anniversary-season
  5. New paint doesn't mean anything. King Cobra at Kings Island was repainted in 1999, and then removed in 2001. I'm not saying that Xcelerator is going to get removed. Just that new paint does not prove a ride is staying.
  6. The arcade/Coke freestyle in Rivertown is being repainted: And here is what The Racer's new paint job looks like today:
  7. Here is a nice photo update from Winter Chill Out on Saturday, with lots of photos of the progress so far on the new Farmhouse restaurant. https://www.themeparkarchive.com/updates/cedar-point-winter-chill-out-2022
  8. The Scrambler is being rethemed to Arachnidia for Jungle X-Pedition: https://www.kingsdominion.com/blog/2022/aannouncement
  9. The Farmhouse Kitchen and Grill is the name of the new FrontierTown restaurant. Details and a rendering here: https://cpfoodblog.com/2022-new-cedar-point-dining-resorts-more/
  10. Wonderful news out of Kings Island today: full restoration of the Carousel for 2022! https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2022/february/kings-islands-grand-carousel-undergoing-major-restoration
  11. You also have the current CEO saying that TTD is essentially his favorite ride at Cedar Point at the 1:00:10 mark here: It's a tough decision either way to reopen or close it.
  12. I highly doubt it...the GM there rose up through Entertainment. I would expect to see more of an emphasis on Live Entertainment in the future, not less.
  13. Photo updates posted today on the Kings Dominion blog for the work on Reptilian: https://www.kingsdominion.com/blog/2022/1.24reptilian_updates Tumbili: https://www.kingsdominion.com/blog/2021/12.7 And the overall Jungle X-Pedition land: https://www.kingsdominion.com/blog/2022/1.25junglex-progress
  14. Avalanche is getting rethemed into Reptilian to fit into Jungle X-Pedition: https://www.kingsdominion.com/blog/2022/1.24avalanche_retheme
  15. I think Forbidden Frontier covers the remaining Shoot the Rapids space.
  16. Doesn't really say a whole lot, but the 50th Anniversary website is now up: https://www.visitkingsisland.com/events/50th-anniversary
  17. It's happened before. Megabyte at California's Great America was designed and named, and even had the trains purchased for it, only for Cedar Fair to realize the actual cost to build it exceeded the $31 million budget they had signed the contract on. That being said, I wouldn't expect Cedar Fair to repeat the same mistake twice.
  18. Looking for the perfect Christmas present? I will be doing a special book signing event for Kings Island: A Ride Through Time, the first-ever Kings Island history book! See you all at Kings Island on Monday, December 20 from 6-7 pm at the KI Collections gift shop!
  19. Avalanche is getting repainted: https://twitter.com/KingsDominionVA/status/1469422685566517252?s=20
