Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

So I got mini update for our trip tomorrow. We were supposed to have a group of four and now we're down to two. It's a little unfortunate to happen the day before we leave.

^ Were supposed to be going tomorrow (actually leaving for the park at 6am) but the weather is looking awful so I doubt were even make it to the park until Sunday. I'm seeing rain and thunder storms almost the entire afternoon.

 

Edit: Nevermind the trip has been officially canceled.

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

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

At the risk of veering off topic, people are just incredibly selective in what causes of death they choose to care about. People only care if it's high-profile, tragic accident, something new and scar

^ Thanks...it's been a while since we had something to post in the 'Dumbest things said on TPR' thread.

 

 

KI has been treated better than most other amusement parks in recent years. Since 2014, they added Banshee, Mystic Timbers, substantial enhancements to their water park, and some significant operational improvements like the new parking lot entrance. They're also heavily rumored to have another B&M addition in 2020. It's astounding how spoiled a group of people can be. Seriously, how much more could you ask for?

But the fanobois were mislead! RMC Son of Beast was their god-given right in 2019, even though there was zero evidence that it was ever happening other than “a ride” was returning! How could that NOT mean RMC Son of Beast?! Unforgivable.

It's astounding how many enthusiasts can't tell the difference between fun nostalgic games and actual teasers. How many mad on the internet awards have been given out in the last 7 days?

^^ Your post came across as condescending and a bit troll-ish as if you popped into the thread not only to trash the new addition, but to make fun of people. I obviously wasn't the only one that read it that way.

 

As others have mentioned KI has made great changes and additions to the park in recent years, and there is already a lot of speculation that there is something big coming next year.

 

To be fair, I also hope that SFMM gets something big as I would love to make another trip out for WCB someday.

I'm not local to either park, but I hope for both Kings Island and Magic Mountain to get great additions every year. Kings Island is getting a good one, and we'll see about Magic Mountain on the 30th. We can all hope for the best for every park.

Well my friends and I went to Kings Island but didn't get there until 1:30-2pm. We spent the majority of our time in the waterpark since it was hot and sunny. We ended up doing both wave pools, the family raft ride, sand volleyball court and the lazy river, which we did 6 laps. One thing though, the waterslide with the whole family is a bit rough of a landing when you bounce in the air. I'll take Holiday World's version 10x over Kings Island's. The tornado waterslide we didn't ride cause I've done it quite a bit at Splashin Safari.

Then it was to the dry park. Only coasters we got on was The Beast and Flight of Fear. The Beast at 7pm was a 5 minute wait. I rode in the middle as I can't do front row. It was rough and my friend and I got bruises on our arms. Flight of Fear said it was a 45 minute wait according to the app but felt shorter. My friends loved it but me, not so much. First time riding it but don't think i'll be riding it. We went back to the Beast to get a night ride on it but we didn't want to wait until after 10 cause we wanted to see the fireworks from the top of the Eiffel Tower, which was an incredible view! We also rode Shake, Rattle and Roll, which was fun, bumper cars, swings, scrambler. We wanted to ride Windseeker (but it got stuck at the end of the night), Drop Tower (which was stuck when we got there), Delierium (app said closed so we didn't go up that way). The app even said Banshee was closed for awhile so no idea what was going on there. We are thinking of going to Haunt so hopefully we can finish those. After the water park closed the dry park was so packed. We didn't even get a ride on Mystic Timbers cause at one point the line was in the midway and we was walking back to the water park to get stuff out of our lockers. Some security lady at the railroad tracks was rude and said we were to take it before 7. I talked to the security guy by the lockers and told him the ordeal (security told us earlier we could do this). He said oh i'm her boss, I'll talk to her.

So last night the Flash Sale pass renewal was having severe problems. It even locked me out of my credit card at one point. Apparently, the site crashed from so much traffic. Guess they fixed the problem now and extended the sale through today. If anyone hasn't taken advantage of it yet and wanted to, you still have today to do so! Renewal is cheapest of the year and you get a free FL+ when you renew. Can't beat that!

I'm late to the game since unfortunately... I was laying on the beaches of beautiful Pensacola, FL during the announcement. I personally love all of the entertaining idiotic facebook posts and I admit that I love trolling the absolute butthurt morons and their unrealistic premature conclusions. I can never help but to creep on the people who make the dumbest posts and it never ceases to amaze me how many of these people are older with children. It confirms the documentary Idiocracy in that stupid people are breeding at an alarming rate compared to educated responsible people. I hope I don't offend anyone, but some of the overweight middle aged uneducated soccer mom breeders make for some of the most entertaining comments. The non-smiling creepy dude with the dark profile picture is also a common characteristic of the idiotic posters. It's almost like these people are 'copy and pasted.'

 

You can really spot a simpleton when you see that their news feeds are full of dumb shared common sense sayings. I can't help but to picture these individuals as the same people who wear the absent minded shorts plastered with sayings such as, "I'm here to party," "Killin it everyday," and "I'm a drop the F bomb kind of mom." Wasting time watching these people make foolish posts and within a couple minutes of facebook creeping being able to tell exactly what type of person they are is beyond entertaining to me. I'd hate these people if they weren't so entertaining to watch.

 

I enjoyed the announcement. Emily and I make it a point to take a spin on rides such as the Antique Cars, Log Flumes, Bumper Cars, and other more gentle rides which offer a nice break rather than going from coaster to coaster. Also, when in the hell did multiple million dollar investments and upgrades become small scale to people?

I am actually looking forward to some people watching at CP & Cedar Shores Thursday and Friday as well. If I see someone with a 'Killin' It Every Day' shirt or any of the ones that you mentioned, I am going to die laughing. I'll even see if I can sneak a photo for my trip report.

 

Welcome back from vacation, Zach!

It isn't like I've never made a stupid post, but people have really been hating on King's Island. Since they already spent $15,000,000 on Mystic timbers last year, I knew they wouldn't be doing something huge next year.

 

To my knowledge, the dumbest amusement park-related Facebook comment I've seen this year was from an Ohio lady in regards to Cedar Point. I no longer remember it verbatim, but went something like this:

 

"Steel Vengeance = epic fail. New trains don't make it a new ride. It is still the same old bumpy track"

 

Not to be political, but I went to her page and discovered a meme that read "Here's to us deplorables" below her own caption above that read "we won". I really let her have it! I have no idea how people get off talking crap about that which they know absolutely nothing about. The obviously had no idea what RMC was about.

Thanks! Last time we went to KI we started playing a game of counting all of the stupid saying tee shirts. We went straight to The Bat. By the time we got there we'd already given up. It wasn't fun adding another one to the count every three paces. I'm proud to say that I can't think of anyone I associate with who wears that type of apparel.

The wife and I made the drive over from Indy last night for 18 month old's first trip to KI. He had a blast riding with mom and dad! Only coaster I rode was Diamondback but it was pitch black and a was running really well.

 

As for what's to come in 2020, I'm inclined to think that it will be a Giga. A speed focused ride would fit the line up perfectly.
