Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Action Zone looks so cluttered to me. IMO. I wonder why they picked a orange and white tent cover?

 

It probably won't look quite so cluttered on the ground. Also I doubt we'll notice that as much when there's an enormous purple and blue coaster beckoning us.

I guess, I should also remember that there are a bunch of trucks, and such laying on the ground that won't be there when the park opens. And where is the photo booth?

I think you're missing Just a few syllables here To write a haiku

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

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

Just a note - ALL Illegal POVs and screen grabs have been removed. You guys should know better.... Please be patient and wait for the official POV. Not some crappy, vertically shot garbage by some employee who hopefully will now get fired over it.

 

Hey, it's the Magic Mountain of POV leaks - Better than nothing!

Of course, it's also against company/park policy to hold any loose item during a ride, so that, and the violation of policy/code/ethics should end that employee's time at KI. Who wants to see his poorly-made, junk POV anyway? His inability to be trusted and the reason he was fired should be a great addition to his resume.

Under the station, I believe.

OH No! That kids future is screwed! Fired from a seasonal job at an amusement park! Jk

 

I'm sure McDonald's is hiring.

 

Will you please let this go? We have no idea what has happened to the person who posted the video, anyway. It's all in the hands of the park.

Yeah no kidding. I dont understand why people are being so judgemental and assuming the worst about a person who was excited and filmed a pov video on their cell even though the park asked them not to.. Even the most over-zealous employees anywhere have broken rules and they arent hellspawns..

 

 

Looking forward to Robs quality footage

Because it's called BREAKING THE RULES. And if you can't understand that, then you really shouldn't be part of our forum.

 

Just because I'm excited to get to Dairy Queen to try their new Blizzard creation doesn't give the right to speed at 110MPH on the road.

 

If you're "ok" with people breaking rules, find another place to discuss roller coasters at. Got it? Good...

Delirium looks plain ugly, I would have left the ride's paint job alone.

I think it was unesecasry. But as someone previously mentioned, it is in front of the new hotness.

 

I would of personally loved to see a color scheme to compliment Banshee. The new shading area would also flow a lot better if it were to match. But this is a corporate park, theming only goes so far. I thought it looked great, and it still does.

Part of the proposed federal minimum wage change is that, if it goes into effect, theme park workers are only required to be paid 85% of minimum wage. A ride op would be a significantly worse job than a mcdonalds cashier.

I think enthusiasts complain about these things because they know the coaster can be better than it is. It's not like enthusiasts stopped having fun, they are hoping for more fun. (This statement is only valid for those who are not boring or ultra serious.)

 

Thank you. Very well said! It's good to have opinions If we all had the same likes and dislikes, and thought every new ride was perfect, that would be lame.

Is kings island a theme park or an amusement park?

 

I define an amusement park as a place with rides on concrete, with not much landscaping or theming. Somewhere like Cedar Point.

I define a theme park with a place which puts just as much importance on the way the park looks and feels as they do on the rides. Places like Universal Studios and Islands of Adventures, with movie theming and great landscaping.

 

Which of these is Kings Island?

^I'd probably consider Kings Island an amusement park. There's not really a general theme, but little small themes everywhere. I would consider Universal a theme park because the general theme is movies and television.

Pretty much every Six Flags and Cedar Fair park is an 'amusement park'. Though 'theme park' takes less time to say and people know what I mean anyway so I always go with that.

Add the two Busch Gardens to the list of theme parks.

 

I still consider Kings Island a theme park that, like most parks built during the building boom of the 70's, has lost a lot of what was considered theming over the years.

I can't remember who said this, but I remember reading a quote that went something like, "The difference between an amusement park and a theme park is that if you take the rides out of a theme park, it's still a theme park. If you take the rides out of an amusement park, it's a parking lot."

 

KI, KD, and even HP fall into a grey area. They have minimal themes but nice landscaping. I guess if you took the rides out of them, they'd just be nice parks. So I suppose Amusement Park is correct?

I've always loved Kings Dominion's term that they call themselves, "Themed Amusement Park". Ever since they've called themselves that I've classified parks into 3 categories 1) theme parks 2) amusement parks 3) themed amusement parks. I think it works great and settles the debate personally.

 

Obviously, Kings Island would fall into that category too.

"I will be in the park after dark tonight to view the lighting effectson #kibanshee. Based on the video I saw from last night, WOW!"

 

 

We should be in for a treat - these rides at night might be better than the beast.
