    The park once had a plan to restore old rides and put them back in operation. I wonder what ever became of that idea? I would love to see a Butter Cup, Tilt-O-Whirl and Sky Ride. I won't even dare to dream about some version of Enchanted Voyage coming back. I never see that happening.

    Sky Ride. Enchanted Voyage. Yes, yes, yes, Mr. Roberts. Also, Tilt-O-Whirl in red, please. Antique Autos is a start.

    I Am A Rider Me too, I was 50/50 on thinking we have more chances of them listening to us, about bringing things back like classics that people love and miss, but after them announcing WinterFest returning, Kings Mills Antique Autos and a renovation of IS, I’m leaning more to think they will be open to more classic rides returning, etc. I agree I think after this season they’ll add more thrills.

    You're right, Mr. Roberts. If there is any way someone can do damage to themselves, they will find it. I don't like pavers in general; a completely smooth surface is much easier for people who either cannot walk or have difficulty walking to use. And easier for we older folks too. I guess pavers meet ADA requirements but I wish they would not replace one kind of broken surface with another. As far as people wearing heels in an amusement park - I have seen people in full dress-up mode there many times and it always astounds me. Why? It's 90 degrees and they're in Sunday-go-to-meetin' clothes. It has to be miserable, to say the least. And then see them there on cold rainy days/nights in shorts, tee shirts and flip flops. What are they thinking? However, Imperial79, it is good they're restoring what was and hopefully they will bring back old favorite rides as well. Just don't think that is very likely. Too many people looking for the next biggest thrill.

    This is awesome! So glad KI is returning some of the things that made it great and was taken away! They’re really upping their game in making the park more beautiful to look at! Hope they keep bringing more classic rides back as well.

    The bad thing about paver bricks is that I see a lot all over the park that are either cracked or have holes in them. If someone should be foolish enough to wear heals it will just be a matter of time before an ankle is twisted. Wearing heals doesn't make much since at an amusement park and not likely to happen, but if there is a way for some dim person to hurt themselves the odds will increase. I could see wearing boots with a more comfortable type of heal during cold weather, like during Haunt or Winterfest.

    I've never been a fan of Firehawk, but at least it is unique from the other coasters at Kings Island. Vortex has nothing special about it besides being a steal coaster that has the extinction of beating the crap out of you.

    I just read that they have completely re-tracked the turn around on the Blue Racer. I think the red needed it worse, but every little bit helps.
