My visit this past weekend was great, even with Saturday being very busy and me missing out on FL until Sunday.    I went into Orion not having followed its construction or watched a POV or even

Get over it man.  You've made your point and we get it; it's silly that this park did not do a Winterfest-lite.  Make the 8 hour drive to KD if you want to experience that, just like all of us with KD

At the risk of veering off topic, people are just incredibly selective in what causes of death they choose to care about. People only care if it's high-profile, tragic accident, something new and scar

^^Flight of Fear's line is not too bad. The usually get the trains dispatched pretty quickly.

 

Full inside queue is about 45 minutes to an hour. Same as a full Diamondback queue which is exactly 45 minutes from the entrance to boarding the train.

 

TRex is closed for routine maintenance!

For some reason that photo looks like it was taken in the 70's.

 

Poor dino.

 

I feel like that poor dinosaur is a victim of Instagram. Low quality, 70s-style filter, 3:4 aspect ratio...

It's not even 3:4 either. It's almost square.

 

I do hope that they get the dinosaur up and working again though. Hey, Expedition Everest, how's it going?

^^ That T-Rex did not do anything except stand there. It does not move....

 

.... unless the wind knocks it over, and they remove it for routine maintenance.

The park is very clean and I think the workers are better than average. They still are mostly teenagers so I guess good for teenagers. I think the park index on this site sums up KI perfectly.

I heard on Screamscape that 3 Brady kids is returning to Kings Island, it's been long since 1973 that Brady family visit Kings Island, and here's the video.

It's in 1973, and Kings Island was one year old, when it was filmed a episode of Brady.

^I disagree as the show is continuously being shown somewhere. If anyone gets ME-TV (here in Cleveland it's Channel 19-2) they show two hours of Brady Bunch reruns every Sunday from 11 AM to 1PM. The sad thing is that every time I see the Kings Island episode I always wish to go back to that time and visit the park in its infancy.

 

It would be different if it was the Partridge Family, who also did an episode at the park around the same time.

Even if no one knows who the Bradys are anymore, it will still make the local news outlets, which amounts to free advertising for the park.

Well actually, I am 15 and not only know what the Brady Bunch is but thoroughly enjoy watching re-runs. My family watched them all the time as we grew up. Also, I know that there are a couple of my friends (high-school aged) that like the Brady Bunch. So, I don't know about you, but to me that more than confirms the fact there are people under 35 who have seen the Brady Bunch.

Looks like FUN Perks will not be returning for 2013.

We look forward to seeing you at the park this summer!

 

Sincerely,

Greg Scheid

The thing is that no one under 35 remembers ever seeing anything Brady, it just seems to me to be a really long reach to get people at the park.

 

This statement really isn't that true either. I am 26 and know them well, as do lots of people my age.

I grew up with all those shows!

 

MARCIA MARCIA MARCIA!

The show is a classic and the park is not just trying to please younger people. They want people in there 40s and 50s to bring their entire family to the park. The PR department isn't always going for the young crowd when doing promotions or special guests. The bonus is that since the show is such a classic there are many young people that know the show. I think it is a great idea.

Looks like the dino in front of the park has fallen over due to high winds in the area.

 

Stuff out in front of the parking lot has no luck apparently. The original marquee sign got knocked down in a wind storm ten years ago in 2003.

Yeah, they have needed a row of trees along the front of the lot for years. Instead, they just continue to fix all the stuff the wind destroys because of their poor planning. Maybe i'll explain this to them next Saturday when I'm there. I'm sure they are concerned of blocking the view.
