Recommended Posts

Here were the waits I saw last Sunday (weather was 70 and sunny):

 

Before 2 pm

Fire Hawk 15 min

Drop Tower 10 min

Adventure Express 10 min

Back Lot 5 min

Flight of Fear 5 min

Diamondback walk-on

Beast walk-on

Banshee walk-on

Racer walk-on

Vortex walk-on

Windseeker walk-on

 

After 2 pm

Beast 25 min

Diamondback 15 min

Banshee 5 min

Everything Else ???

 

My free fast lane really didn't make too much of a difference until mid afternoon.

9 days left for me...

 

Anyone been through all the haunts there yet? Which are must dos and which are skippable? So far I've heard Madame Fatale's and Blackout are must-dos, Wolf Pack not so much. What about the others? Of course, if I have my way my group will just be getting the Fright Lane pass and doing them all, but we'll see about that...

In the loop just posted a review of clint visiting Haunt for the first time. Overall I have been through Madam Fatales, Board to death, Urgent Scare and Cornstalkers. Overall I think that Madam Fatale's and Urgent Scare where really good. The bigger mazes seem to good, andn ive heard a lot of people talk about Blackout. Id use the In The Loop video to make decisions on what to go to and what not to go to.

Well crap... freeze warning from 1am-10am on Sunday morning and I'm going to the park on Saturday. I hope none of the coasters close from the cold.

 

It'll be 52 during the day don't worry about it dude. B&M's will close when it's like...40* or lower though. I think it's 40*.

Just checked into our hotel near the park. We were planning on going into the park tonight, but the entire state of Ohio is under construction. What should have been a 4 hour drive, turned into a 6 hour drive.

 

Has anybody on here been in the new haunt yet? If so, what's the theme of it and is it worth the wait?

I'm surprised you had trouble driving. I flew up from Texas on Friday morning to visit King's Island Friday night and drove back up to Cedar Point on Saturday. Our drive from Cleveland took about 3 hours or so.

 

This was my first visit to KI and I must say I was impressed! I had always wanted to check out The Beast and the legendary night ride lived up to expectations. As CoasterBill stated, I hope it doesn't get revamped any, I love a good out of a control wooden coaster! As much as I love our new Texas Giant here at SFoT, I do miss the old beat you up version before RMC took it over sometimes.

 

Banshee was AWESOME and I really enjoyed the airtime on Diamondback. I went up to Great Adventure this year and Nitro and Diamondback are very very similar but I enjoyed the KI version a bit better. I enjoyed Firehawk a lot more than I thought I would, I enjoy flying/laydown coasters, but the restraints can get uncomfortable at times, but we enjoyed our ride.

 

I was very impressed with the haunt! They had a TON of roaming characters and I enjoyed how dark and creepy the park felt, it was very well done! Overall, a very good trip and I got to knock off The Beast off of my "need to ride before I die" list. We found some very nice locals in the lines who helped us out and very much appreciated it!

I'm going to the park Halloween weekend for Haunt. I'm assuming I'd need Fright Lane for Saturday night 10/31 to do haunted houses, but if I were to switch my schedule to Friday, would crowds be better? Also, I plan on going back to the park on Sunday for the rides; is closing day usually an issue?

Every time I take a look at the Cedar Point webcams during the day with decent weather Millennium has a mostly full queue, and at the same time on the same day Diamondback is nearly a walk on. Of course there are factors that influence this but it's very consistent. Does Kings Island just not get that busy during the day in the fall? It's really weird and I take a look at the webcams fairly often because I'm a nerd

 

Edit: later in the afternoon it might be a 10 minute wait and build up at night, but until then its almost empty. It's a strange sight to see.

Has anyone else noticed how Carowinds and KI have added the unlimited souvenir cup refills for 25 bucks next year? That honestly sounds like a good deal....

 

Kennywood did that this year and it as great. $20 was a no brainier, especially if you have a season pass.

KI doesn't run any of its houses on Sundays; CP does. Sundays at KI really only consist of families with young children and a small number of die-hard passholders.

 

 

Oh I didn't know that. Why do they not open the haunted houses on Sundays?

I still think that KI should run at least one or two houses at least, maybe the new BLACKOUT or MADAM FATALES CAVERN OF HORRORS, just so that the teenagers/Adults aren't bored to death with spooky children stuff....although i haven't seen many Haunt props covered up on Sundays like they used to.

 

 

 

In other words construction has started on tropical plunge!

The park only stays open until 7PM on Sundays. I can't recall them every staying open later/or doing haunt attractions on a Sunday even going back to Paramount's ownership. I was surprised SF Great America was open 'till 10PM and had haunts open on Sundays...I had grown up only knowing KI to do it on Friday and Saturday!

Here are a few random shots I took at the park last weekend.
