It'll be nice that the last weekend of operation for 2008 will actually be on my weekend off this year, since it's the first weekend in November. I figured they would do that.

Shouldn't be hard to beat my previous record of 17.

Seems a little strange to close Boomerang Bay early, but I'm sure there is a reason.

 

As for the park, I'm looking forward to the Fridays in May...I smell some walk-ons! And closing day being in November is a very welcome surprize for me!

I hope to make a few visit to Kings Island this year along with visit to Coney Island, Wonderpark, and Stricker Grove.

 

I understand that Stricker groves is open on 2 days out 364 days. That's just crazy but I am sure they have some reason for that. I might do like one hour for both Coney Island and Stricker Grove and 15 minutes at Wonderland and then the rest with the big boys/girls @ Kings Island.

Stricker's Grove has been opening three days a year for a while now. Fourth of July, Family Day (2nd Sunday in August) and Customer Appreciation Day (2nd Sunday in October). Hope you get the chance, as it's a great park.

On the calendar it said that it was closed for private event on one day.....

I remember a few years back, Me and my family went up to Kings Island....Then we get to the gate and they said it's a private event for some business company.......
