Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

So... since it appears that flume is being removed, I feel like they wouldn't blatantly say they're removing it like they just did unless a new water ride was coming in next year to replace it. I think that's probably what's coming in 2017.

 

What's the name of that flume? Haven't been to the park in forever and it's not listed as an attraction anywhere.

The parks snapchat account is run by an intern. They do not know what next years attraction is and they also have no idea if something will be removed.

 

The ONLY place which has been hinting at anything to do with the log flume is snapchat. I would just ignore it.

It is $40.99. To see that price you go to tickets, when it takes you to the ticket portal click on the drop down for daily tickets and select bring-a-friend.

All they do is post #goals, it's lit fam, yoloswaggybae, and other terms that are so late to the game on being relevant with any demographic.

 

I still don't know what half of those things mean and they're already not cool any more?

 

If hash tagging or saying 'bae' makes you cool, I'd rather be dead. I wish I had a time machine so I could go back a few generations.

To when? Slavery era? Great Depression? Come on. Sorry kids aren't all going to sock hops anymore, but if some shorthand is all it takes for you to want to head back to When America Was Great Again then please, be my guest.

"Watch for falling trees"

 

----------------- HOLD ON. Most of us have been assuming that those signs are hinting at a wooden roller coaster in that area and in the area currently occupied by the log flume. What if we're taking that assumption a step too far? There hasn't been any confirmation that the log flume is coming down, that's still just a rumor at this point. What if THAT'S what the sign is hinting at? That the log ride is coming down?

 

Just a thought I had. Sorry if it's already been said.

 

edit in case I wasn't clear: I don't think I made some big discovery or something, I just think we've all been really fixated on "it's a wooden or a giga," and (as far as a woody goes), I think that if the log ride is coming down, the signs probably mean that, and I don't see much of a... reason to believe at this point that it will be a wooden coaster.

^ So the log ride could close after this season and the plot could be opened up for a new addition in 2018. I haven't thought of that, and it makes sense.

 

I thought about that too, being for a giant 2018 attraction... but....

 

- Historically they don't tease two years out

- There has just been too much ground work/and building destruction and reconstruction for something opening two years from now. I'm not saying it's not possible, I just think it's too premature. Of course, it could always be a multi-year project.

- I still think the log flume's time is short... though i don't want it to be.

Turns out, after I go to Cedar Point on Friday the 3rd of June, the 4th will be a Toledo day for the whole family, and the 5th will be Kings Island because it's the other big theme park in Ohio.

 

1. Firehawk

2. Flight of Fear

3. Backlot Stunt Coaster

4. Beast

5. Diamondback

6. Banshee

7. Invertigo

8. Bat

9. Adventure Express

10. Racer

11. Vortex

 

Yeah, same questions.

 

1. What modifications would you recommend I make to my current idea?

 

2. While I won’t really be able to avoid it, do the parks put out a list/schedule online ahead of time for any rides that will be closed for annual maintenance?

 

3. Which coasters have single rider lines?

 

4. Flat ride suggestions?

 

5. How are operations? What coasters break down a lot and which are really good?

 

6. Food suggestions?

 

7. What coaster usually has the shortest line? How about the longest line?

 

8. Anything else I should keep in mind?

Anyway Just make sure you do the beast at night and wait the extra time for the front seat. I enjoy all of the flats so I am of no help there just do everything you can.

 

Just saw Bills edited post and I can agree. My buddy and I finished out Banshee Bash with 13 straight rides on the Beast in the back. It was an amazing experience.

2. No need really. The park is very good about doing maintenance when it is closed for the winter. The only ride which is still closed and I think should be open for your trip is White Water Canyon.

 

3. None

 

4. The park has several good flat rides. But you are already going to have a busy day. This is a holiday weekend and unless you get a fast lane will already have a hard time doing everything.

 

5. Operations are pretty good. Not amazing but better then normal so far this season. The rides are pretty reliable and are mostly rarely down.

 

6. Eat at Reds Hall of Fame Grill if you have the time, best food in the park, but service has been spotty. The Chicken Shack can be decent but is very hit or miss and seems worse this year. There is a buffet lunch out at the Picnic Grove this weekend due to the holiday and that should be decent but more importantly fast. Food service has been just awful all year so far. Waits are frequently 30 minutes or longer and popular locations have been over an hour most weekends so far. My guess it will be miserable trying to eat in the park this weekend at most locations.

 

7. Shortest line is typically Racer or The Bat. Adventure Express and Vortex both have lines that are normally not too long but more importantly they just seem to move. Longest lines are Diamondback, The Beast, Flight of Fear, and Firehawk. Banshee is typically the best operations in the park and has a shorter line in the afternoon, most sunday afternoons it has little to no line.

There should be a new rule that I can't post before downing my first cup of coffee in the morning.

 

This is a rule I've realized I should always adhere to when posting online, here or Facebook, in general!

 

Imagineer Josh, while I agree that The Beast at night is a definite must ride, and multiple rides then would be ideal, don't sleep on Banshee at night! It's also a very awesome night ride, and the queue experience then is tops of any that I've been in!

My only issue with Banshee is there's no place to store my souvenir bottle in the station while I ride. The souvenir bottle is literally the only thing I bring into the park that doesn't fit in my pockets. I hate having to spend $2 every time I ride Banshee.
