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

Recommended Posts

Coasting for Kids was a Blast!! Had many rides on the Racer in the rain and drizzle. Met a few cool ACERs from Chicago. (Don't hate!) I ate lunch quickly and got 4 rides by myself with no one on the train (First time ever!) The station had a party atmosphere. We sang songs, clapped and had a good ole time! Thanks TPR and KI! It was the most fun i've had riding coasters ever. And KI raised over 20K total!! 7k more than last year. win.

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

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

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

Has anyone seen this????

 

Geez.

99.9% chance he's just trolling to get attention. These types of videos annoy me not only because he looks stupid, but the uninformed are somewhat likely to believe him. Also an obvious SFGam fanboy and very confused B&M hater

I was at Kings Island over the weekend. Saturday night lines were hefty already when I queued for Diamondback. I could tell the ride ops were really trying to get people moving with the new seatbelts, but we still ended up wating 1hr45mins.

 

I'm hoping this can be attributed to growing pains and that they can get efficiency improved over the long haul.

It's a joke account, some of his videos are actually pretty funny. I got a kick out of this:

 

I thought it was a pretty obvious (and funny) joke, but it looks like a lot of.. quick thinkers... are taking the video serious. lol

45 min posted time for Banshee was only 25! Diamondback operations. ..abysmal. Line at the steps should be 5 minutes. It was about 15 because every train was stacked. Dispatches every 5 minutes.

I'm going to be at Kings Island next Sunday and have never been before. I would love some help on how to navigate the park, and how to hit all of the rides. We want to do pretty much everything. Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

The most important tip is to make sure you get in line for the Beast around 9:15 - 9:30 at night. You're goal needs to be to get in line so that it's going to be completely dark when you ride, but there are enough people behind you in line that you get to ride in the front. They close the ride for awhile during the fireworks but that's awesome because it gives it the opportunity to get completely dark. This time of year it's not an easy thing to accomplish but it's worth planning around it because it's the best night ride in the world.

 

The only other tips I have are to get there for early entry to Action zone. The Banshee line moves fast and when you're done with that you'll probably have time to ride the Bat too before they let everyone in. As soon as they open the park for everyone get to Firehawk and Flight of Fear because they get huge lines... especially Firehawk.

This is extremely disappointing. I hope these stupid seat belts are a one-season deal.

Pick your poison with Flight of Fear/Firehawk/Invertigo/Stunt Coaster. All of them have awful capacity and or the line just moves slow. I would start with Firehawk and Flight of Fear then go to Stunt Coaster. Sunday shouldn't be bad. But getting those rides first will help you enjoy the better rides later.

I was at KI on Saturday and Diamondback didn't seem to have any real delays due to seatbelts. We were able to buckle the belts and then pull the bars down ourselves, and the ops checked both in one go each time.

If you know that it was posted 2 years ago why are you bringing it up now and saying that you hope it's just a rumor? Clearly it was just a rumor...

 

At some point they'll remove the ride, but that tip he got seems like it was a bad tip.

^ I actually had my first and what I plan to be my last ride on Vortex this past weekend. I like the layout but in a park with so many awesome non painful rides I think I'll Credit and Forget It! Cha-Ching! Ouch.

I'm planning a return trip to KI on (Friday) 06/27 since my wife and I enjoyed the park very much on our first visit in 2012. I'm a little concerned, because two of the Hyatts closer to the park are booked solid, so we had to go with one seven miles away. From what I have gained via google, KI is having a "Spirit Song Festival." Is this something that might draw a massive crowd or is there something else going on in the area outside of the park that weekend? I'd really like to go fast lane free, since we're probably getting twilight passes on Thursday night. Literally every time we buy a fast lane pass or flash pass to avoid heavy crowds the park empties out within a few hours...

Inside the park (Behind Drop Zone), and expect a massive crowd.

I think Vortex will be dismantled in the next few years. It's old, tired, rugh and does not attract many riders these days. I hardly ever ride it.

 

I disagree with that. When they released the statistics for how many riders there where last year, Vortex was the third most popular ride with more than 1 million riders. Unless something bad happens to Vortex, I do not think Vortex will be dismantled
