Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Having done both I prefer Xtreme Skyflyer over Sling Shot though Sling Shot is really not a bad extra charge ride.

 

If you want to try Sling Shot, as already mentioned, get to it early when the price is cheap and there is no line for it (it can get a bit of a line as the day goes on). Seeing the Eiffel Tower do a full 360 at the top is pretty cool to see. Skyflyer is scarier with those few seconds of pure freefall before the cable grabs you plus I like swinging out over the midway far below.

Just a quick little update on tropical plunge. Vertical construction has started! Photo courtesy of kings islands official Instagram. No pictures as of yet of work that has been done to the entrance.

 

This photo of the new entrance was released by Kings Island on the 29th of December.

How scary or fun is firehawk? Can you tell your on ride experiences?

 

It's fun but I avoid it now. It gives me a headache and it's slow operations are a pain. I can see people freaking themselves out thinking the restraints might come open and you'd fall. It is fun though, I enjoy the flying coasters. I prefer B&M to the Vekomas though.

Wow I'm actually kinda surprised they took that building down. It seemed like one of those parts of the park that would never be touched. Not a huge deal. Part of me wants to see the antique cars return over there where White Water Canyon's queue is. It's a really pretty area that feels more like a walking trail state park than a theme park. Not sure how likely that would be though.

This is pretty interesting, I wonder what they are doing. Hope they announce soon! Talking about the Antique Car's, did you vote yesterday on Kings Island's Twitter account? They had a poll on what was the most missed ride, the Antique Car's won, followed by the Skyride.

No Need to fear about a new ride! They just tweeted about the thing that will go in its place (Judging by the demolition and everything)! The park is adding a new game to Rivertown called Soccer Challenge. If I do remember correctly, didnt they use to have A football game, a soccer game, and a baseball game in coney mall?

I'm kind of surprised that building was razed yet the last thing that area needs is another game stall. If it wasn't for that area being the entrance and exit for White Water Canyon a nice flat ride would be nice right there since there are no rides between Diamondback and Beast since the crappy Crypt was removed (not counting the KI & MV RR).

Maybe they wanted to put a flat ride in but maybe waited a bit too long thus they are putting in the soccer thing as a filler until a year or two from now when they can get things worked out in a more timely manner to put in a flat ride.

I wonder if the removal of the Funnel Cake building is early development of a new attraction, or if it will simply be replaced by a new food/retail building. Time will tell. On the speculation side, it is a decent enough size plot for a Dark Ride building, and supposedly CF wants to put one in every park. Granted they already have one at KI.

Or a questionable upcharge soccer game. Just a hunch.

I preferred X-Flight, but that is another story.

 

The line is slow, and loading can take a while. The lift is loud, and the brakes send blood towards your head. But the ride between those points is quite fun.
