Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I'm starting to believe that both KI and WoF are getting dark rides considering they are both starting construction at the same time. I mean, possibly it could be a coincidence, but I just find it weird that they both are teasing and starting construction within the same week.

 

No by Cedar Fair's logic they will give Kings Island a record breaking gigacoaster and then give nothing to the other parks.

 

This is from last year and taken directly from the Cedar Fair website.

 

 

Find your parks slice of the pie and compare it to the rest. That should give you a pretty good idea as to why certain parks get big attractions more frequently.

 

Cedar Fair is planning on spending around $150 million in capital investment this year which was announced a few months ago. Assuming this is a giga from B&M, King's Island is looking at getting $30 - $40 million of that while the rest of the chain will still get over $100 million in new investments. There is still a lot of money being invested in other parks.

Definitely feel like Carowinds should/will be bigger than that. And I didn't know Knotts "slice of the pie" was so big.

So from the looks of it, it goes

1) Cedar Point

2) Knotts

3) Kings Island

4) Canada Wonderland

5) Carowinds

6) Kings Dominion

7) Dorney

 

Which is completely understandable. I believe in the next few years Dorney will be getting a water park expansion.

Oh god yes... Please please please let it be a darkride. If KI gets a new coaster before we do I just might boycott all CF parks

Lol calm you saggy tits. Canada's Wonderland has gotten Behemoth, Leviathan and Wonder Mountain's Guardian in less than a decade. That's more than most Cedar Fair parks, let alone parks in general. In that same span, Cedar Point has gotten Gatekeeper and Valravn. No reason to be greedy, Wonderland will get it's coaster soon, just be patient.

Plus now we know Kings Island makes up a bigger piece of the Cedar Fair revenue pie

I know this seems out of left field for a rumor, but could this possibly be Cedar Fair's first RMC coaster? They at least do three coasters a year, and not many Six Flags parks seem to be jumping for them in the next season, as well as any other park in the U.S, even if it is still extremely early in the season.

I guess we'll find out whats going on when

 

1) RMC needs land surveyors and they show the three locations people will be placed (If its leaked like it was last year)

 

AND

 

2) When ever the construction starts and they start digging up dirt and pouring concrete, which might not be till June.

 

Im like 55% Giga, 45% Woodie. Either way if its a new coaster ill Be happy lol

How's this park when it comes to rain? I have a trip planned for Saturday, but the forecast shifted and it's now calling for 100% chance of rain (no thunder/lightning, though). Are they as touchy as Cedar Point or a little more lax on the matter?

Everything should still remain open, however in extended rain fall....

 

The Bat typically goes to 1 train operation

Vortex goes to 2 train operation.

Flying Ace, Surf Dog, and Viking Fury will likely be closed for rain.

 

On occasion Firehawk will close for rain, however in recent years it has been open.

 

Hope this helps, enjoy your trip.
