    KIE photo contest for the off season of 2013/2014

    Oh, this is great, Mr. Roberts. Looks like they own the world. The babies are funny to watch. Beware the adults, though; they are protective and can be quite mean. When is the green coming back? Haven't seen anything but snow for months, it seems. I think that's the male in front - so haughty and royal. Terrific pic.

    Roller Coaster videos

    Okay, Mr. Roberts, I am officially nauseated. Think that backward twist might kill me. As for traveling the world to ride coasters - great for you younger guys but someone of my age, past that time. If it's further than three hours on a plane I'm not going. But hope you get the opportunity. These are great videos. I presume the people filming have special permission of some kind as I don't know any place that just lets you film as you ride. A helmet cam would come in handy for this....... No idea about additional theming but it would make sense to continue it.

    Concept art for Avatar Land at Disney.

    Thanks for posting this, Mr. Roberts. Looks very interesting. Long construction time, or so it seems. I've never been able to see the "big picture" when it comes to building things...........have to wait till it's done. Should be fun when it's completed.

    Have had this same idea for years, Mr. Paramount4ever! Maybe if we keep wishing...........
  5. I Am A Rider


    I agree, Mr. Paramount4ever. It would be a great year-round destination. I personally don't find the food at Great Wolf appealing; it would certainly be a good alternative......and a much, much better view.
  6. I Am A Rider


    The old restaurant there was a favorite of mine, Mr. Paramount4ever. Have thought for years they should reopen it. And the chef could still help out in the other areas, Mr. Genesis, but I don't expect them to reopen it. It had good food, too.
  7. Interesting, Mr. Roberts. But 25 acres? That is tiny. Wonder if that will be the park in its entirety?

    Bat Souviners

    Good for you, Mr. Roberts; however, second-hand smoke is also dangerous, as you well know. If that person still lives with you, tell em to get a patch - or go to a free smoking cessation clinic. They're available at all hospitals. I smoked when I was very young and stupid but fortunately learned my lesson early on. Still hope every day I don't someday have to pay the consequences......it is a terrible addiction and hard to break. Never did drink; never will. Ms. jennapooh, would like to see a picture of those. I just don't recall the stuff they sell because I care nothing about it. Life's short; what's the point saving things? Use it or donate it is my motto. Nice that your son uses the Scrappy Doo mug.

    Bat Souviners

    Ms. jennapooh, you might try your luck on e-bay. Something might turn up there. I have seen KI memorabilia for sale on there before, odds and ends. Mr. Roberts, please tell me you are not the smoker with whom those cups reside. You know it will kill you and it's not a good way to die - personal experience. Same goes for high blood pressure. NOTHING is more important than your health. My old tired brain does not recall any Bat or Screamin' Demon stuff; I know it was there but lost in time. I've never been a collector of things, just music.

    Kentucky Kingdom

    It is a wonderful park and has been missed.........great rides, scenic, and the best BBQ.........

    Banshee Construction Progress

    Wowza, Mr. Roberts. You should make a poster out of this. Completely other-worldly - great effects. Probably right about a different crane, Mr. YS. Can't imagine the costs of those things but has to be exorbitant.

    Walt Disney World park coming to China

    I agree, Mr. Paramount4ever. Can't say they have any policies I like but they do what they please. Sad.

    Walt Disney World park coming to China

    One does have to wonder where they'll find the room, Mr. Roberts........most populous country in the world. But Disney will make boatloads of dough or they wouldn't be doing it........

    drop tower to become Hellevator

    I agree, Mr. malem; it would be quite inappropriate. And Mr. Paramount4ever, I like the Lost River idea, especially if they colored the water......nice link, too. Mr. Roberts, I'd forgotten temporarily about the name at Kentucky Kingdom and that it had been changed; don't think "hell" belongs in the name of a ride at a family amusement park....just my thought. I'm sure the powers that be can come up with something if they do retheme the area.

    drop tower to become Hellevator

    There's a thought, Mr. Roberts. But on second thought about Drop Tower, don't think they would use Hellevator. Wasn't that the name of the one at the former Kentucky Kingdom that cut off that little girl's legs a few years ago? That would not be a good idea........

    drop tower to become Hellevator

    Mr. Roberts, I've been wracking my brain - such as it is - and can't come up with anything. They could color the water black or red, but names.....I'll have to do some research, I guess.

    Best Addition for 2014?

    I don't think most people will be disappointed in Banshee, Mr. YS, and Mr. Roberts, I agree, it's not a new attraction to repaint or retheme, but it will look better and I like bringing back the Bat name.

    drop tower to become Hellevator

    If that will be the new name, it's certainly appropriate, Gentlemen.

    Good one, Mr. YS.

    Flight Deck name change!

    This makes a good Halloween trick, Mr. Paramount4ever - now they're stuck in my brain along with the very very old Banana Boat song. But it's a lot more fun than some of the things that won't "unstick." Maybe a trick or treater will show up in a banana costume............. Mr. YS, you're right, the logos do seem similar.

    Banshee Construction Progress

    Interesting thought, Mr. Paramount4ever. Wonder if there's anything out there that can safely repel animals and not harm humans in the process. I think in the beginning the noise would keep them away, but in time they probably become accustomed to the sounds. Coyotes, bears, etc. are moving into towns and cities now as they lose habitat and it doesn't seem to bother them at all - just the people.

    Flight Deck name change!

    These dancing bananas are soooo funny, Mr. Paramount4ever.

    Kings Island and Coney Island history video

    Mr. CP&LERR Fan, there's a lot of terrific stuff in the history section of this site. You can spend a lot of time there. Please check it out. Thanks for posting this.

    Banshee Construction Progress

    Mr. CP&LERR Fan, I think Mr. YS is joking about the fog. Looks as if it came in heavy and fast there this evening. I did not realize how close to the ground the new coaster would be......hopefully the noise/activity will keep any critters out of harm's way.

    Flight Deck name change!

    I, for one, will welcome the return of The Bat - and the new colors. Maybe the whole area could have an autumn/haunt theme of some kind........Skycoaster could become something to do with owls.....Flying Owl, Night Owl, Flight Owl......just meandering thoughts. Skycoaster isn't an actual coaster to me. Have never liked the Flight Deck name personally. Just looked into the history section; there's some great old pictures of the original Bat. Thanks for posting this so quickly, Gentlemen.
