    • When I think pendulum ride, I think Delirium. I have never thought of the Viking Fury as a pendulum ride. But I guess Delirium is a frisbee ride. Still seems like a variation of a pendulum to me, however.  
    • BLOG: It's Not Magic, It's Science: Pendulum Rides https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2021/february/its-not-magic-its-science-pendulum-rides IT'S NOT MAGIC, IT'S SCIENCE: PENDULUM RIDES February 28, 2021   Nikki Lee Youth Sales Representative - Kings Island Hi everyone! My name is Nikki Lee and I’m the Youth Sales Representative at Kings Island. Kings Island started as my very first job and I’m now on my 11th season at the park. I’ve worked in various positions during my time here but being the Youth Sales Representative has truly been the most fulfilling. After all, I get to sell FUN for a living, and I have the chance to help create memorable experiences for our youth. I am responsible for all youth programming and K-12 youth group visits to Kings Island. This includes all educational and STEAM based programs such as Engineering Day; performance groups such as marching bands, dance teams and choirs; and just-for-fun trips too! If it involves youth – I am most likely your person. Over the past few months, I’ve had the opportunity to talk with many of our educators and partners about their experiences during these changing times. Therefore, we know that keeping students interested and engaged can be a challenge. That is why we partnered with our sister park Cedar Point, Rockwell Automation and Global STEM Ambassador, Jay Flores, to share a five-part video series, It’s Not Magic, It’s Science! These videos can be used in both in-person and remote settings and believe me when I tell you, they are FUN to watch! Each video consists of 3 parts: the Experiment, the Explanation and the Exploration. In the Experiment segment, you’ll see Jay conduct a real scientific experiment. In the Explanation, he’ll cover the scientific principles and properties involved and, in the Exploration, you’ll see the science applied to one of your favorite amusement park rides.   We’ll be featuring a new video every few weeks leading up to Opening Day 2021 on May 15. Our first video features Pendulum Rides. Here at Kings Island, this is the all-ages favorite, Viking Fury. We will be sending new experiments monthly leading up to our operating date so be on the lookout for the next one! The full version of the video can be viewed below: Enjoy!  
    • The park has already said that those Covid policies will continue this season.
    • I hope they will continue to enforce the sanitation, mask, and distancing protocols. This pandemic is far from over.
