Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Everything is open till 1:00, including the rides. Except for The Bat I believe- I was there on Sunday and they had taken the sign down.

 

As for Fastlane, I'd say go for it if you want to get lots of rides in. Beast usually has a full queue until late at night during Halloween, and the park stays fairly busy. Not Saturday busy by any means (I think the football games keep people away), but probably weekday-in-July busy.

So it's either not so busy, "like a weekday in July", or "Fastlane is a must" busy.

 

Dumb question, I'm not from the area so Saturday is the only day I could go to KI. My girlfriend has a heart condition, so getting scared by someone isn't good. Would there be any way to go but avoid the scare actors messing with her?

^Fridays are not very busy (summer weekday-like crowds). Saturdays during the Haunt are the busiest days of the year, with the only exception being opening day. Sundays are absolutely dead.

 

Avoiding the scare zones wouldn't be too difficult, based on their locations this year, but watch out when you go to exit the park; those sliders will get you.

I would expect 2+ hour waits for Fire Hawk, Flight of Fear, Diamondback, and Beast anytime after 2 pm. Heck, even the Flight Deck had 30 minute waits in years past. That being said, you'd have less than 10 minute waits for everything with Fast Lane.

"Hiiiiiiiiighwaaaay tooooo the DANGLEY ZONE!"

Haha, most of the inverted/suspended/feet-dangling rides are in one area (minus Windseeker).

The Beast was giving religious experience rides last night. Nothing like a cool, dark foggy October night to bring out the best in that coaster. I've ridden it for 35 years, last night ranked as the best.

 

Aww yeah, that's the kind of thing I like to hear! The Beast was riding good in the beginning of summer, too. It's been a good 35 years so far.

I did my visit to the park yesterday, might try to do a trip report on it whenever I can. Thank you to whoever told me Sundays were dead, I finally got my fill of Banshee rides (and plenty more) to make up the five-hour wait on opening day for a single ride! All rides were running quite well aside from some minor roughness on The Beast, Vortex, and (to my surprise) Flight of Fear. After 12 laps, I also got to experience the rattling and thigh crushing (on certain specific seats) of Banshee. Yeah, it's impossible to not notice, but neither made the ride unrideable or any less fun, imo.

15 minute wait on Banshee at 3:30 on a Saturday 9/27. Weird.

 

I don't think it's that weird. I was there on the first Saturday in August and it had no bigger than a 30 minute line all day. It's just a capacity monster.
