Does anyone think this park will be crowded tomorrow?!

Its Kings Island, when isn't it crowded? But yes I'd assume it'd be crowded. Whatever you do, don't go Sunday! It's bring a friend day which will make it automatically be very busy, plus all the people going for after prom.I live in Indianapolis and I know almost everyone going to prom is also going to KI Sunday.

^ I did it last June on my first trip to KI. I guess that the Gold Pass Season Pass holders get to go back too, so we just got to go back early with them. I got 7 consecutive rides on Diamondback in the rain. It was awesome. We then walked back and got on the first train of Beast. It was an awesome perk.

WATCH THE TRAILER

 

Launching May 26 on the giant screen (63-feet wide x 27 feet tall) in Action FX Theater at Kings Island, the 10-minute show brings dinosaurs, their behaviors and their ancient environments to life through the use of Dolby 3D glasses on the screen as never before seen – juxtaposing stunningly realistic and scientifically accurate computer generate imagery (CGI).  Using state-of-the-art techniques, the filmmakers have created an array of amazingly life-like creatures based on the latest fossil evidence so that audiences can experience these creatures on the giant screen.

They will witness dinosaurs locked in mortal combat, nesting in colonies, protecting their young, and facing catastrophic forces of nature. They will also learn which ones traveled in herds, which made nests, which were the predators and which were the hunted and other surprising behaviors in this amazing show. 

 

Dinosaurs Alive! 3D is suitable for all audiences and an exciting film for dinosaur lovers from age 3 to 93.

That rules out seven years of audience, plus any supercentenarians visiting... They won't be letting dinosaurs into the dinosaur attractions!

The ride looks very good on the KI skyline and is quite picturesque from different vantage points (sorry no pics as I didn't take my camera to the park this time around).

 

It was going up and down the tower all day Saturday but was not spinning.
