Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

Kings island just posted on Facebook, that the first 5000 riders for Banshee will receive a "first rider" T-shirt on opening day.

That wont create chaos or anything!

At least not with the General Public. You coaster enthusiasts are going to fight over these shirts like it's water in a desert. Have fun!

First of all, aren't YOU a coaster enthusiast like most of use here based on your high level of activity on here? The Public likes "Free" no matter what it is. Perhaps the shirts will make the public get their passes processed earlier and into the park as fast as possible on Opening Day? The demand will already be there anyways for people to get on the coaster as early as possible. My only hope is that Banshee's line is flocked on Opening Day to the point it reduces other queue lines. My student budget would like to avoid Fast Lane unless it is necessary. Although, I think Saturday the 19th is going to be the pure hell day for a KI visit if the weather holds out.

Here's a shot of the new sign. It looks spectacular from up close on Kings Island Drive, though some of the smaller fonts are tough to read on I-71. Overall though, it's an obvious improvement.

 

Just 11 days until media day and 12 days until open!

 

 

"World's Longest Inverted Coaster!" Do you think the public really identifies with the entire inverted coaster terminology? Do they even know what an inverted coaster is, let alone any other inverts?

I for one think a lot of people here don't give the "general public" enough credit, but even if the majority of people don't identify with the term "inverted coaster", that's not really what's important. What' important is the word "longest", and THAT'S what people are going to really be paying attention to. King's Island just had to throw the word "inverted" in there to make their claim legitimate. But people aren't going to care what inverted means, they're just going to be extra excited to be riding the world's longest anything. Not to mention, passerby who don't necessarily have the intention of visiting King's Island will see that they broke some sort of record and realize they're a big-time amusement park maybe worth checking out one day.

As for everyone complaining about queue lines.....would it be possible to have the longer waiting lines and endless switchbacks built with some kind of comfortable padding instead of concrete? That would do wonders for sore feet from walking all day......

Hand out the shirts as riders exit the station platform, block off the ride exit so no one tries to sneak a shirt by just walking up the exit to the platform. Done.

Looks like we'll have to hold off on Banshee pictures for awhile. Kings Island GM is at ValleyFair, I would think some pictures from there will be popping up soon.

 

Do you know why the Kings Island's GM is at Valleyfair?

Looking forward to Thursday... I am curious if it will be more/less busy than CP's media day was. Not like it matters, but I wonder if location will draw more/less, or if Cedar Point will naturally draw a bigger crowd. Back at Diamondbacks media day, it was DEAD. But it was also closed to enthusiasts and all that as well... It was nice never having to get off the ride though.

Just checking up I guess. Kings Island is his main park to stay, but most GMs, PRs, and such visit other Cedar Fair parks time to time.
