This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Kings Island (KI), this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.
I think the PCW Italian Job ride is in a better location then the one at PKI.
The one at PCW is located near the Great Canadian Mindbuster and the Orbitor ride in a new theme area called Action Zone. I think the PKI Italian Job ride in located in a themed area called Hell! - Hehe! 8)
So you do know where the "Hell" section is at PKI then. Thats good cause most people dont know where that is located. I think both Italian Job rides are going to have the same lay-out and paint job. 8)
BWT - Theres a "Hell" section at PCW too. Its right behind Wonder Mountain.
Does it strike anyone else that Paramount seems to like pimping their movies that just royally suck with rides and the like. Am I the only one that sees this ride as being a potential nightmare? I mean those are ITTY-BITTY trains and what is it like 3 of them... This thing is gonna be a zoo all the time. Unless they have absolutely amazing maintenance the effects are gonna be down a lot. Besides half the ideas in the ride seem half thought out at best. I don't know maybe it is sour grapes...
Although truth be told I would KILL for a Sky Captain ride...

In a word, um.... YES! Ok, here's the thing... I grew up with Kings Island being Kings Island. It was a great park... classic rides, good entertainment, and a little thing called Winterfest that brings a tear to my eye when I think about it. Then, Paramount came in, and tried, lamely, to imitate Disney, but, well... they ain't Disney.
Plus, I am just sour grapes that with all the land they own and haven't developed, they had to take down two family rides that hold a lot of memories for me, to put up this ride.
