    New: Fast Lane

    That does seem like quite a lot of money just for 1 person what they should do is make a pricing tier for that, like $20.00 for non season pass holders and $10.00 for season pass holders, or maybe go back to the old fast pass system which was free to begin with.

    Son of Beast update

    Is it just me, or is the Son of Beast problem starting to turn out like the problem that The Bat had in the early 80's, or am I just reading way in between the lines on this?

    3-18-11???

    This is my guess, but maybe its going to use the existing track layout for the Son of Beast with some minor modifications to the track layout.

    Son of Beast update

    I hope this does turn out to be true and Kings Island does decide to open the Son of Beast in the near future, because I have every intention of riding in the front car when it opens back up again.

    Disney and their Problems

    What I want to know is how come a park like Disney can have a lot of deaths and severe accidents happen on their rides and still manage to stay in business. Here is the link on wikipedia that lists the accidents that has happened at their parks up till now:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incidents_at_Disney_parks#.

    New Park Site, Blog, 2010 Park Guide Released!

    Well I am not sure how current this is, but on Planet Snoopy's webpage it shows the (current) park map and it shows the Son of Beast clearly marked on the map. Here is the link:http://planetsnoopy.com/kingsisland/parkmap.cfm

    SON OF BEAST NO GO IN 2010

    At least from reading the article about the Son of Beast being a no go for the year, I got this good vibe from reading the article. Also here is a thought to what they can add to the already growing Son of Beast ideas to make it safe, they could put the legal wording in the Season passes order form. It would say " In light of recent problems with the Son of Beast, we have decide to take a new course of action concering the Son of Beast" or something along those lines.
  8. I had heard some rumors and I wanted to share them with you so you see if they are true or not, here they are: Rumor #1 The fountains in front of the Eiffel Tower are getting removed Rumor #2 Is the newest ride Diamondback getting a name change for 2010 Rumor #3 The Son of Beast is getting reopened next year.

    Kings Island ride flawed, engineer says

    Maybe Kings Island can hire the Gravity Group to perform dynamic and structural analysis to ensure that the Son of Beast will still be a high-speed thrill ride and still be safe.

    Scooby Haunted Castle Retheme?

    Since we all know now that Snoopy and his gang have come in and kicked Scooby out of his castle along with his buddies, I was thinking that the former Haunted Castle could get turned into a Snoopy vs. the Red Baron light gun game.

    Son of Beast Closed for Rest of 2009- Maybe Forever

    Until I hear other wise I am going to stick with the "be working on sob in some fashion, as they were contacted by ki but didnt get all the details yet" quote.

    Son of Beast Closed for Rest of 2009- Maybe Forever

    Here is another idea that I came up with that might help the Son of Beast stay around longer, a online petition http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/saveSonofBeast .

    Son of Beast Closed for Rest of 2009- Maybe Forever

    I created a Facebook page called save the Son of Beast, here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=109204891177. If anybody has a good picture of the Son of Beast, please send me a link to it because I have not been able to find a good picture to use for the profile pic for the group. Who ever sends me a link for a good picture of the Son of Beast, they will get a credit for it on the page.

    Son of Beast Closed for Rest of 2009- Maybe Forever

    Maybe if they keep it closed for the rest of the season and work on it, they could get it opened back up in time for its 10th Anniversary next year. I am going to keep my fingers crossed that this is what I am hoping they will do.
