Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

My comment was referring to being in the park with other people, but using a fastlane alone, while they socialize with each other. I should have known it was going to spawn comments justifying solo visits.  😆

I think you're missing Just a few syllables here To write a haiku

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

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

Nothing yet (got a Season Pass Holder email today that didn't mention Fast Lane at all).  To further spurn the hope for those without the master plan like me, the website still says "On Sale Soon" as opposed to "Not Available."

Getting colder. I'll give you a hint. You had the right number of lines for a haiku, you just needed to change the number of syllables. Hope that helps.

I also just finished the KI book. Some great info. Don't know if I buy the "why Orion is smaller than Fury" story though 🤣. Also looks like California's 20+ year streak of not having a B&M hyper is not going to end anytime soon.

I believe

it. Mike Koonts in the conclusion

says he wants to make King's Island a family park

What he says about Orion

fits with what he says later

Cedar Fair: No more temp checks, all rides should be a full capacity, no facemasks outside or if under age 10.  

Sounding good Cedar Fair. Good work.

Here are the official guidelines from the website. Link

Quote

Reservations will only be required for visiting Soak City Water Park. Both Season Passholders and Single Day Ticketholders will need reservations for Soak City. 

Temperature checks for guests have been discontinued at the front gate. 

The health screen questionnaire will be conducted by associates at the front gate and will not be conducted  through the Kings Island mobile app. 

There will be no limitations to ride capacity for most rides. 

Guests aged 10 years and older are required to wear face coverings while indoors, unless actively eating and drinking. Face coverings are not required outdoors unless it is not possible to maintain 6’ of social distancing. Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, and not have exhalation valves or vents, which allows virus particles to escape. 

I love all of this. Masks work, but when everyone who wants a vaccine can pretty much get one it makes sense to phase them out in areas (see: outdoors). It should be noted that you still need to wear them where social distancing is not possible.

PS: It seems like the president is expected to make a statement on this today anyway and the park will probably just be falling in line with new guidance from the CDC.

Not everywhere for the no-masks-outdoors sadly, KD is still requiring them at all times outside of RelaxZones or water stuff.  Guess they're taking a state-by state approach; good for them on that.

agreed. .whatever the President notes in Statement today, I suspect will be Federal Guidance, and most theme parks will fall in line with those recommendations (most, not all, because some States are going to raise a stink regardless of what the new guidelines may be - even if President Biden were to say today: Masks no longer required ?   Some States would complain it's too soon.. . so I'm not pointing my comment that "States will raise a stink regardless" only at States run by a certain party).   

but ultimately, they will be guidelines, and the Chains will do what they want to do.

that said?   I"m at Kings Island for Coasterstock in July, and will be wearing my masks the whole time around other people (except when eating with those who have also been vaccinated already).

it's the Patriotic thing to do:  to care about your fellow Americans regardless if they care about themselves.

For the record I don't understand why they would announce this in the morning when they know that the president is likely to relax guidelines later today anyway. From a PR perspective it would be so much easier to let the CDC announce this first and then say "In-line with new CDC guidance here is our new policy" rather than announce it first. Maybe they felt like playing a practical joke on their social media and PR people?

This is what I wrote back in our Facebook TPR Group:

I think most of us realize we don't REALLY need masks outdoors when we can distance, but the problem boils down to when you give an inch, someone will take a mile! It's easier to just have a blanket MASKS AT ALL TIMES rule, then trying to enforce masks sometimes, but not always, and judge when you can distance or not type thing. This is just going to lead to no masks anywhere.  I have a kid who can't get the vaccine yet (hoping her age group is approved soon!!!) and I want to try and at least be somewhat safe with her.
