Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

I honestly think Bat is an awesome night ride too.

 

Unfortunately with a 10 PM close in late May that close to the Central time zone there's really only time for one true night ride so it'll be Beast for us. We were there on Memorial Day weekend a few years ago and totally forgot to consider how late the sun actually sets that far west in the time zone.

I've only ridden it at night. It was pretty good. Still, I'd like to see what it's like during the day.

 

Same here, except not really interested in a day ride. I imagine it'd be like watering down a good beer and then drinking it warm.

^^ I would never want to ride that log flume at night again. I didn't get a chance to ride it during the day so I got around to it after the sun went down.

 

I was expecting a nice little splash like most flumes, but nope I got full on drenched from the drop and then Snoopy blew water all over me.

I'll be there Saturday. What is Kings Island's policy with rain? The last time I actually went while it was raining was probably 5 years ago. I just don't remember, and it looks to be a rainy weekend in Mason.

 

Unless there's thunder or lightening in the area, it's always been my experience that everything stays open and runs to max capacity.

I caught KI on a rainy Saturday (no thunder/lightning though) last year, and it was excellent! Just about everything stayed at max capacity, and fast lane was really unnecessary with mostly walk-ons around the park. Two thumbs up for their rain policy .

 

However, we have a trip planned for this weekend as well, and there seems to be thunderstorms in the mix unfortunately. Saturday looks to be the better day to go, weather-wise, with the storms predicted to be scattered rather than continuous. I completely forgot Coasterstock was happening, so hopefully we along with fellow enthusiasts get a break in the weather.

^WOO I can't wait!

 

Who else is going to Coasterstock tomorrow?

 

I'll be there with my son! I'm surprised there hasn't more chatter on the board here leading up to the weekend. Hopefully the forecast keeps people away and we have the park to ourselves:) I'm really looking forward to the behind the scenes tours of The Beast and Diamondback as well as the ERT at night on those two plus Mystic Timbers.

It becomes a really fun mine train. I enjoy it both ways, but it really is much better during night.

Had to skip Coasterstock again for this year, sadly. Reeeeally wanted to go, but money and time said no. Oh well, might return next year maybe.

Hope you guys that are going will have a blast!

Had a great first day so far at Coasterstock. Lines were very manageable this morning and early afternoon. Banshee in particular seemed to be giving great rides today. Heading to dinner then back for this evening's ERT.

Hey guys, semi relevant considering some of the posts on this page, but I just completed a very in-depth review of The Beast on my blog. I've love to hear your thoughts on it!

 

THE BEAST REVIEW: Still the most radically unique wooden coaster to ever exist

 

JC,

I love your long reviews of wooden coasters. Would you consider doing one of Ravine Flyer II?

Oh man, I wish customers offered to buy any new equipment that was starting to show age instead of just complaining about how "dirty" the business is. Thousands of people per day will make things dirty. It's (unfortunately) up to the business to maintain cleanliness.
