No way they sell out on a Wed. If it's crowded and you want it, buy it then. 

Agreed, I would wait and see how the crowds are before making a decision on FL+.  I went to KI on a weekday in early June a few years ago and the coasters were mostly walk-ons.  It could be different this year due to pent up demand, but I'd still wait to make a decision until you see the lines at the park.

Good to know! Yeah just on extra prepared mode given everything is still out of whack, supposedly parks all over are having staffing issues and wonder if that will impact KI's legendary ops (even on a dead day w 2 trains my god they were moving, it was the best I've seen). But yeah agreed best to risk waiting till day of that they wont likely sell out.

No one spotted my Fuji Q hoodie except for 1 older dude in the beer line who just wanted to rant about Kingda Ka being the best and was still very mad about Rebel Yell being changed to Racer 75. Where we the cool nerds at??

Absolutely incredible to me that some people are still willing to die on this hill, three years later.

I wonder how they'll enforce the vaccination standards. Hand stamps or wrist bands???

I wouldn't be surprised if the parks will keep the policies as already announced this year, since most of them have lightened up. 

Trust humans to do the right thing and be honest...

I bought FL that Saturday when I was waiting for parking to open. You can only buy FL online so if you get to the park and need/want it buy it on the KI site or app. You pick up the wristband at the front gate, but gotta buy online.

I've never heard of this. I always go to the booth just inside the gate or the store by Banshee. But are you saying you if you've already purchased it you can pick it up at the gate? Is this true for other CF parks?

do y'all think I should pre-purchase FL+ for when I'm there for CoasterStock?

It's on Fri/Sat in July, and keep in mind there is a bunch of ERT before and after Park open/close on both days.
So I hadn't planned on doing FL/FL+. . but seeing how insanely crowded all the parks have been, I'm second guessing myself if I would need it.

1st time/only time visit. . so . . . opinion?

Hard to say, since this year is so crazy. In years past I'd say wait and see, but if you don't see yourself getting back here for a while, and there's a possibility that FL may sell out, then grab it. The FL queues here are very much worth it, you basically won't wait at all.

 

Oh, and standard advice holds here, ride the Beast at night, and don't go in the shed.

Bert I've been debating for Coasterstock too. In the past when it was on a Friday/Saturday in May it wasn't needed, but now that it is in July, I'm thinking about it. We will have to discuss, lol.

I can tell you every single coaster will be on ert at some point and they will probably finish the second night with Beast open a half hour later than all the others, like after midnight later which is super insane

They mean at the booth near the front gate.  You don't get your Fast Lane wristband *at* the gate when they scan your ticket/pass.

@bert425I'd get it for Saturday definitely.  It's such a treat at this park...literally every ride except Flight of Fear dumps you right into the station.  Just try to hit Bat and Woodstock Express early (they're the only adult-ride-able coasters that aren't on FL).

And in other news...

Area 72 Launch Party set to open May 29 

Lights, action, dancers, a D.J. and other surprises await you at the Area 72 Launch Party. Opening May 29, this one-of-a-kind fireworks pre-show party runs from 9-10 p.m. on nights the park closes at 10 p.m. or later. Elsewhere in the park, Center Stage, Live and The PEANUTS Gallery also open May 29. Three other shows, Brew Beatz, Busker Jam and Stick(y) Paint, open the following week on June 5.

Sound cool, but not cooler than an end-of-the-night Beast ride LOL.

@KIEnthusiast, you should have done a quote with the information from the Tweet in addition to linking it.   Particularly because now the Twitter link is dead.

The hits continue with Cedar Fair.  Kings Island had to shut down their gate due to capacity today.  If you bought tickets but cannot get it, they will be good any other day you choose.  Wow.

I dunno, I think I'd file that one under "good things for the park."
