Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Kings Island just sent out a media invite for ACE members. I'm not sure what other clubs will be included. There isn't a spot for a guest, unfortunately. So nice of them to include some of us. I didn't think Cedar Fair would be inviting the park/coaster clubs again after some problems at another media (that I did not attend).

 

Doesn't seem like they are talking too much about the shed anymore, I haven't seen it in any of my feeds. Very excited for the ride!

Get over it man.  You've made your point and we get it; it's silly that this park did not do a Winterfest-lite.  Make the 8 hour drive to KD if you want to experience that, just like all of us with KD

My visit this past weekend was great, even with Saturday being very busy and me missing out on FL until Sunday.    I went into Orion not having followed its construction or watched a POV or even

I went the weekend before last and wasn't going to do any sort of report or review, but with this discussion, I'll throw my hat in the ring. I thought Orion was fantastic.  Millennium Force is th

Who cares about a shed when just a couple hours north, there's a shiny new RMC under construction.

I have never purchased a souvenir bottle. Even when I received one for free at Coasterstock, I did not use it.

Does anyone remember if CoasterStock participants receive the season long souvenir cup or the daily one? Thanks!

It was the daily one. I used mine just once on check-in day and never used it again. I hate carrying those cups around parks, because I never have a bag. Saves me l*cker money.

^I would think other clubs are invited, but I really have no clue. I met up with some TPR club member friends at the Banshee media day. Perhaps they are trying to keep the group small or have different times for the media? Six Flags have had shifts for media days; usually one early and one a few hours later.

At first I was sad that I probably wouldn't be able to do media day but then remember I got to experience that and while it is cool the first rider auctions are much better.

I think the biggest problem with inviting all coaster clubs is the extremely large number of GOCC members in the area. The ratio of enthusiasts to media was hard to manage at Banshee media day...not to mention feeding all of those people.

Maybe they will reuse the interior of the train depot building for a gift shop?

It would be a good move to use that for a gift shop for Timbers souvenir's and possibly some new Train gear! but where would they put the coke freestyle that is in there right now, plus that's a pretty small space as it is right now.

 

 

New station pictures where released by the park today! It looks beautiful!!!!!!!

Are you on that crew? If so and you get drive trained, you are going to bake in the morning sun up there in that drive box. Banshee's drive box sucks in the afternoon through sunset. Even worse, is the metal panel. It reflects the heat. That's why we put that Halloween curtain in the one window at Banshee.

Of all the coaster trains in the world Millenium Flyers are probably my favorite visually, followed by B&M Hyper Trains.

Cool video. Just once I would like to go back to those primitive days of Kings Island to experience it again. My family's first visit was in 1974 and I was only six years old & HB Land was truly a magical place.

"The new Mystic Timbers roller coaster is themed to an abandoned lumber company"

 

From the park's Instagram and Twitter.

 

I like this theme, I dig creepy abandoned places. Also would be easily themed for Haunt!

The webcams are legitimately down even if you go to Pixelcaster directly. I don't think they'd bother taking the Banshee cam offline, so I feel like they're undergoing maintenance and it's completely unrelated. It could be related to construction, but who knows?

Yeah I've been curious today why they'd take all the cams offline. I was watching the Mystic Timbers cam yesterday getting overly excited for no good reason about the guys walking the lift hill and the first turn and hill over the lift.

^I think yesterday in the evening they where doing a pull through test of the first drop area.

Heres a neat video on how Mystic TImbers has ever so slightly changed the skyline of the park!

 

Also, I think testing will begin next week (i feel confident in this guess, that's all I'm going to say ) and the reason why the webcams where down might be because we might be getting that new "Cedar Fair style" website that Cedar Point, Carowinds, Kings Dominion and California's Great America all have.

 

The park map is finalized and is going to the printers in the morning!
