Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Forget Winnie Witch's Cauldrons - bring back Der Spinnin Keggars to Oktoberfest - an area that really needs new life brought back to it.

 

My hope is that Kings Island gets the Kings Dominion treatment for its next big anniversary by bringing back some of the attractions that once called the park home. With CF going out getting rides in Europe I'm hoping that this will be the case.

Kings Dominion didn't get any past rides. Really the only addition in 2014 was the singing mushrooms. Everything else was food/landscaping/etc. And screwing around with Volcano's queue and station that made no difference at all.

That would be fun too, to bring back!

I would imagine as a first time rider things like "vibrations" go under the radar because you are so invested and green to the whole experience

I rode it for the first time back in 2011 and I couldn't believe how terrible it was. I'm not one to complain about painful rides, but I made the mistake of giving it another chance - actually, one more chance in the back car again and another in the front row - and actually walked off with a headache.

It gave me a headache too. I can't remember any other B&M rattling (including Fury and Intimidator). Or if they did, it was very minor. Maverick rattled like that in the back on my first and only ride opening year.

Building a 'brand' at theme parks like these doesn't really do much for me. If I want that kind of experience I will go to Disney. If I go to a Cedar Fair or Six Flags park its for the rides not the food/atmosphere. No reason to latch on to nostalgia here...

 

I want more record breaking coasters to hit KI as fast as possible. With CP also being in Ohio I have such a hard time getting friends/family to come here as most would rather go up north where "the rides are better". I was a bit disappointed this year when the new attraction was a water ride. Although... KI does have one of the best water parks I've been to AND you can take a break and go ride some good coasters with the same ticket.

Why is Kings Island supposedly getting a giga? They are literally the last park besides Cedar Point that needs a coaster.

Because thats literally the last thing that crosses the executives' minds when they're planning these types of expansions. They have no goal of "keeping it fair" or "giving the smaller parks a turn." It's only return on investment and they could not care less about another park that "deserves a coaster" before Kings Island.

I was told a chunk of Action Zone was getting the boot as part of the Giga plan when I first heard of it a couple months ago and that the drop tower and inverted boomerang are on their way out, but hey, who knows.

It is the first park in the chain to start teasing for 2017 right? It's gotta be a pretty big investment whatever it is.

I think Busch Gardens Williamsburg wins that one.

 

Yeah that's why I said in the chain (CF).

Oh oops... That's what I get for not reading...

There's no way the drop tower is on its way out, I really don't believe this will be a giga.

Drop Tower would be a terrible loss to the park. That is one of the best non-coaster rides they have. Vortex is the one that should be on its way out and replaced with something... Maverick 2.0!

Vortex is easily one of my favorite coasters in the park and one of my favorite loopers overall. I hope it lives forever!

Yikes, that's news I haven't heard before. I trust your posts, though I'm very nervous to hear about Drop Zone! That tower is incredible.

 

I have fond memories of Vortex...but not in the past 5 years. That thing needs to go

I'm just wondering, do you work for the park?
