Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Hmmm....decisions!
I had tickets, hotel, flights, car rental all set for last year's Coasterstock.

Do I attempt to book everything again?  I will be fully vaccinated tomorrow!! 

Already booked my trip to Cedar Point for Coastermania.

Still no job yet (was with Disney for 21 years) and with my luck, they will call me back as soon as I book everything!

UGH!

Airlines have some of the most generous waivers ever right now so assuming you find an airline with a covid waiver where the don't charge a change fee with your booking (which is most of them) and the car and hotel room are refundable (which they normally are) then I say go for it. The risk is very minimal. Note that you will likely not get a flight refund but rather a credit but then you can just go to Cedar Point any other time.

Not only that but if you book on SW  you can simply change flights without even losing early bird if you have paid for that. But either way I have cancelled and rebooked like 5 times with them between Covid and Texas snowstorms

I think I'm going to give it a shot. . 1st time ever.

 

tix on sale Monday, and if can get a ticket, THEN will try to figure out hotel/air/getting to the park, and of course, a couple of days off work to attend.

Nice! Yeah I had a wonderful time at KI, more than I expected. Park lived up to the hype, and I was shocked at how good the ops were. I went on a quiet day and not only was everything running 2 trains, the ops were not slacking at all. A+ 

I won't be going to coasterstock, but I will be stopping by KI after coastermania, and I am stoked. Been wanting to get back to this park.

Booked!  I ended up using my Southwest credits for everything. Flying into Louisville on Thursday, doing Kentucky Kingdom, then driving to KI for Coasterstock. 🎢

It's totally worth it if you've never done an event at KI or did one a while ago. Going under Diamondback, back by the Beast, Banshee, in FoF are always a fun time and I'm sure there will be some cool new access to Orion. Maybe they'll use the old Dino alive path.

^ sounds like a lot of folks are excited about it. . . we shall see if able to get a ticket tomorrow :)

 

EDIT:  and . . done.

Ticket bought, hotel booked.  

Now just have to get time off work, get flight/car, and I'll be able to knock Kings Island / the Beast off my bucket list!

Coasterstock is sooo much better than Coastermania at Cedar Point. It's the way Coastermania used to be years ago. Both are good, but this one is the best! I'll be at both...

I hope none of us have problems getting tickets tomorrow. Particularly since I talked Bert into it!! My second hour class will just have to work on their own for about 15 minutes while I secure tickets, thankfully since this is  my last year teaching no one is watching me at this point anyway 😜

Well, I was entertaining the thought (IDK where I'll be in July so trying not to plan that far out) but if its already sold out makes it easy lol  I'll be doing KI this year anyway. Deff excited to get back :)

Coasterstock tix sold out in 15 minutes. Coastermania at C.P. are still available after being on sale for over 1 hour. What is this telling us???

Could've had less in stock? It has a stronger base of passionate fans? I first went to Coastermania 2017 so I can't vouch for "it used to be better" I tend to dismiss that stuff as either nostalgia or some type of "ahhhhh I did before it was big/sold out" but hey works for me. Keep people away from Cedar Point make it better for me :)

Speaking of going to KI, I see their fast lane plus is "going on sale soon". This means they are doing one? Anyone got any idea when they might go on sale? Last visit it was dead on a weekday but Im going later this time and I see schools are out so I'm worried about crowds.

KI's Fast Lane has said "on sale soon" pretty much since they closed last season.  The only guaranteed way to get it right now is to add the All-Season, All-Park Fast Lane Plus to a Platinum Pass using one of the sites that's offering it (such as KD).

I'm not sure it's that telling but it does surprise it didn't immediately sell out.  I suspect capacity is a lot more than Coasterstock.

Another point thing is timing.  Coastermania is the same weekend as Holidwood Nights and Orlando Informer meetup at Universal, and coaster rodeo the following week.  Lots of events happening in June.

Ah good to know, thanks! Hmmm so thats added to my platinum pass? aka I get the fast lane for use at ANY of the Cedar Fair parks? If so....$299 is hefty but to use it for 4 or more parks not a bad deal tbh
