    2011 Ride Announcement Tuesday

    I'll be there! I'm guessing it's a Wind Seeker type ride, but that doesn't stop me from wishing for a new coaster. :D

    I'm curious as to what it is they're fixing...

    HolidayWorld Voyage

    I was just there for the first time last week... I wish I would have known about the different trains so I could observe. Rather rough ride, though.

    Cedar Point Excursion

    This summer (late July), I'm going to be taking a trip to Cedar Point with a friend. Neither of us have been there before. To anyone familiar with Cedar Point: - How many days do you recommend visiting the park? - Any advice on navigating, what to ride first, places to eat, etc? - Where's a good (and relatively inexpensive) place to stay close to the park? Since we're also going to be spending at least one day at KI before departing, we're considering Platinum Passes. Any other advice would be welcome, too. :D Thanks!

    Cedar Point Excursion

    Thanks for the links! Do you know if there exists a printable park map with labels? The PDF is nice, but it would certainly be useful if things were labeled... On a different note, I filled out an online request for a Getaway Guide... anyone know anything about this?

    Cedar Point Excursion

    Wow - I've apparently been neglecting this thread. Thank you so much, DiSab! I will definitely keep your suggestions in mind. It looks as if I will be able to make two trips to Cedar Point this summer, with two different groups of people. I did, as suggested, get a Platinum Pass... which has already been worth it by the number of times I've gone to KI. Time to go find and print a Cedar Point park map...

    Kings Island's 5@5 Mailbag

    So they do plan to redraw their map...

    Cedar Point Excursion

    Yeah, July isn't exactly the best time of year to travel to Cedar Point, but it's the only time our schedules will allow. Passes do seem in order! Thanks for the recommendations!

    New official KI website on the way

    At last! The typography on the season pass page was starting to frighten me. I was hoping it was temporary...

    Great Wolf Lodge PTR

    Great look inside GWL! I stayed there once a few years ago; it was quite fun! Can't wait till Kings Island opens for the season...

    KIExtreme Offseason Photo Contest Winner Announced!

    Congrats Mitchell! I have to admit, I loved your photo and voted for it. Looks like my vote made a difference in the end. ;) You deserve it; awesome photo! Congrats, Nick, as well!

    Kings Island 2010 - What's to come ?

    I must admit, I'm equally guilty of this. I've been known to ignore conversation and fall into a trance-like state in the presence of that thing.

    Kings Island 2010 - What's to come ?

    Ack, I did in fact know that... :D Just wasn't paying close attention to what I was saying. Thanks for the catch.

    Kings Island 2010 - What's to come ?

    Something I do really enjoy on Flight Deck is the rhythmic sound of the chain. It's almost like drums!

    Any News about Son of Beast?

    ^ Oh gosh. Where/what is that coaster? And I find the comments on that video to be highly amusing...

    Kings Island opens for the season on April 17

    Last year was my first opening day; I'd love to go again!

    Flight Deck

    It used to be painted red, didn't it? What inspired the steel grey scheme, and when did they last repaint it?

    Tuesday's Kings Island snow images

    Love the one of the Racer!

    Flight Deck

    Top Gun/Flight Deck really needs some restoration work. Paint, theming, anything! I really enjoy the coaster (and its secluded location, for that matter), but it seems to have lost its charm. I also miss the Top Gun music in the queue, but that's a completely separate matter...

    Kings Island Prepares Coaster For Opening

    All the snow on the ground makes me anxious to be riding Diamondback again in the pleasant spring breeze. How long till April again? *paces back and forth*

    New for 2011?

    I agree, and could see them doing something smaller for 2011. Save the new coaster for the 40th anniversary celebrations, once everything with Son of Beast has been settled. Some extra attention to developing the existing theming would be nice before then, however...

    Paramount VS Cedar Fair

    I agree wholeheartedly. Also, I'm not sure if it was a Cedar Fair policy or not, but it seems a bit out of place to have to enthusiastically ask "How was your ride?!" after EVERY ride, including Viking Fury.

    Halloween Haunt 2009 Preparations

    I'll be there tomorrow for P&G day... I can't wait to see the Halloween Haunt decorations. They're looking great so far!
