Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

P. 829: Adventure Port themed area announced for 2023!

Recommended Posts

Which amusement park "hasn't" moved or removed a flat ride to put in a coaster other than Disney or Universal. KI has gotten rid of a ton of stuff with fewer replacements, but they're getting better. I just hope the flume stays. I had a great ride on it Saturday.

I would be willing to bet the flume is safe. There has been signs that trees behind and to the side are being cut down but no indication that any of the work will impact the flume. From what I have seen the clearing will get close but there should still be a thin line of trees separating the two rides.

^ I started as a flat ride enthusiast and worked my way into a coaster enthusiast. I will always have a soft spot for Ferris wheels and scramblers. You need the balance.

 

One of my big disappointment parks is SF Magic Mountain, and that's due to such a lacking flat ride collection and diversity with their other rides. Though their coasters are great... it just doesn't completely seal the deal for me.

 

KI has removed a lot of family and flat rides over the years to put in big coasters and such, but Cedar Fair has been preserving many of the remaining rides that aren't mechanical nightmares in their now 10 years ... (Yes, 10 years) of owning the park.

The log flume posts could be a red herring, but I remain convinced that the flume will be going to make way for the ride, and stand by my thoughts on where the location of the coaster will be with that in mind. If I'm wrong, that's great! But they seem to be hinting about its removal pretty hard, here and there...

I also started out as a flat ride enthusiast. Before I lost my fear of coasters a few years ago, if I had a choice between Dorney and SFGAdv, I'd choose Dorney every time because of their larger flat ride collection. I love Diamondback, but I also love a good Tilt-a-Whirl that spins the heck out of me.

I could see it happening if the Rivertown expansion is bigger than we think. Otherwise I'm not convinced. There are good options for locating the new ride without removing the flume.

There are "good" options all over for the new ride, certainly. However, the fact that they've teased the removal of the flume multiple times, and the design of the upper portion of the "T" layout of the coaster, bears a strong resemblance to the current footprint of the log flume, gives me reason to think there's fire behind all this smoke.

The term 'flat ride' enthusiast just makes me sigh. No such thing as just saying "I like flat rides" anymore. We have to add vast depth to everything. I myself used to be a pizza roll enthusiast, before working my way up to a full blown pizza and beer enthusiast, so pizza rolls will always have a special place in my heart.

So that makes me a tits,A$$,vagina & Stripper enthusiast.

 

There's a different term for you, Guy: Sex addict... which I'm totally cool with. Live it up, brother.

 

Oh I do.

This could easily be fan-made to mess with everyone, but take it for what it's worth. From @AndrewSetters on Twitter. There's also news/media posting about #KIProject2017 today, so they might have been sent this little press kit.

It's legit... KI retweeted something very similar.

Alright, cool! It would be too easy to buy a toy ax at the store and print off a little card to go with it. Thanks for the link.

Been sitting on these for a few weeks since they are out of focus at the top. I took the pictures using my cell phone camera and merged them in photoshop. This is all 5 pages of the plans submitted to Mason. Enjoy
