Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Is KI Haunt included in it's admission/season pass, or is it a seperate charged event?

 

Just want to know so I can plan accordingly.

 

It is included.

 

If you haven't before, shell out the extra money for Fright Lane, the skeleton key is a lot of fun.

 

I didn't know there was any other way.

 

But then you don't have enough money to drink or tip strippers. But with fright lane, you have more time to do those things.

We actually had a debate about this today. At the CA Cedar Fair parks they close and reopen for Haunt, so you either need a separate Haunt ticket or a Gold/Platinum Pass. With my Platinum Pass I get a bring a friend ticket, so does that mean I can bring someone to Haunt for free? If it's like the CA parks, I wouldn't be able to.

 

That's odd that a Cedar Fair park would operate different than another Cedar Fair park, but KI does not close and reopen, they stay open all day Saturday, Friday night is just evening operation and Sunday the haunted houses are not open. As for the bring a friend free, not sure how that works. Looking through KI's website, the only benefit I see around the bring a friend is the ability to buy up to 4 discounted tickets in advance or the ticket window.

It is weird that the CA parks operate differently. It makes sense for Knott's because of how big their Haunt is (and how family-friendly the park is otherwise) but it's kinda weird at CGA. The bring a friend ticket I was referring to was Platinum renewal. I guess I'll find out today when I renew!

FYI I have had really good luck with the contact us page on their web site. A few weeks ago late on a Saturday afternoon I asked if they infused the Blue Ice Cream with petro chemical based artificial food dyes and received a response within a couple of hours that yes they indeed do infuse their Blue Ice Cream with petro chemical based artificial food dyes.

 

Good to know if you do or do not like to ingest hydrocarbons.

Then you're doing it wrong.

If KI ever did get a new dark ride would it be to replace Boo Blasters or would it be in addition to? I personally think the park could support two different dark rides. It just doesn't seem to be the norm.

The old Tomb Raider/Crypt building would be great for a new dark ride of some sorts but it is a small area wise to fit a decent dark ride in it. If they kept the cave entrance it already has and maybe add on to the existing structure (there's plenty of room behind the huge building to do so) then it would be possible and not cost as much as an entirely new build.

What's up with KI and wanting to assign seats so badly on Banshee and adventure express? Usually you can get your own seat if you ask a few times, but it's still annoying.

 

Is this a new practice this season? I was there last year during Haunt, and they weren't assigning seats on either. I sure hope they (CF) desist with all the seat-assigning nonsense around the chain, as it's not logical, typically, and just needlessly irritates people (all people, GP that care, and enthusiasts alike.) I was very pleased to not see it once during my visit to CP last week, as they suggested a row with Valravn, but let me step to the side to wait for front on it at my request. Nice to see sensible courtesy prevail!

Yeah, they would assign rows to groups, but every time I asked for a certain row, they had no problem giving it to me. If they did I probably would have brought up the fact that I just waited so & so amount of time in line, I deserve to choose where I want to sit.

 

Whenever they've given me a hard time I've done this and it has worked.

Photos of everything going on around the park on labor day of 2016, construction video to come soon. Im going to assume once the park is closed for winter, that the train tracks and station will moved in the direction towards the Eiffel Tower to incorporate the station for Mystic Timbers.................i wont be surprised if this doesn't happen.

Please don't. Have you ever worked in a park or with the public in general? Someone telling you they "deserve" something really makes you just want to hit something. The employee also "deserves" to be able to do the job they are being paid to do without people giving them crap about it.

 

Sorry - but that hit a button for me -

 

Carry on -

Love the Halloween Haunt pictures, I wanted to visit the park this past weekend to see the progress that they have made, due to family plans my plans were erased. I can't wait for Halloween Haunt, already have the baby sitter in place, pre-gaming destination picked out and ready to get my Fright Lane pass.

And when that doesn't work I think you should throw yourself on the ground (hard), kick your legs, swing your arms, and cry like a little girl until you get what you want.

You too, except throw yourself over the railing.

I believe Guy T Koepp's working method is calling the ride operator a racist bigot.

Fixed!

 

And, works every time!

Why not just "protest" and burn a few buildings down?
