^Don't worry, that's fine. KIExtreme caters to thrill-seekers and other amusement park fanatics around the country. While most members aren't too far from Kings Island, others are located in different time zones and have different home parks.

cbrendan502, dont worry about not being as much of a fan and not knowing as much about the park. We will not discriminate you in any way for not knowing things about the park that some of the other members know also.

 

When I joined this site back in March of '07, didnt know much about the park and I had been going for the past 9 years. When I joined, I wanted to know everything about Firehawk as I followed construction of it very closely and I also came in with the intention of wanting to get to know the park more and get to talk about it without people ignoring you or making fun of you at some point.

 

What I'm saying is I started out on this site the same way as you, not knowing much about the park and I'm sure I'm not the only one that was like that either. I have learned a lot about the park from this site alone and if you would like to do the exact same thing I will say it is really easy. All you have to do is keep reading the forums everyday, check out other parts of the site, and even ask questions about things you are not sure about whether its about a ride, history, or just the park itself and before you know it you will have learned a great deal of new information about Kings Island.

 

So cbrendan502, if you want to know a lot of stuff about the park, follow those tips and if you dont that is fine also. Hope you get to know the site more, know about the park more, and hope to keep seeing you around on the boards and last but not least, Welcome to KIExtreme

 

As for the quiz for me, I surprisingly only got 1 wrong even though i thought i would miss more but now I wonder which question I answered wrong.

I'm about an hour and a half away when I'm home, depending on traffic. But at school, I'm about 30-45 minutes. Sad thing, though, I didn't get to the park at all last season. However, since it seems like I'll be staying on campus for classes and work for the summer, hopefully I'll get to the park this coming year.

I first joined KIExtreme, then known as ExtremePKI, years ago after searching for Kings Island timelines on Google. I've learned a great deal and now put some of the information to use in the monthly quiz :)
