Park News - (8/11/14) New update about what the park may be adding for 2015 posted below: Shortcut Here.
(8/5/14) Good news, Screamscape has confirmed with Don Helbig that the Shake, Rattle & Roll ride will indeed return for the 2015 season. The reason wasn’t given, but I’d say it was in need of a major refurbishment.
(8/1/14) According to the latest guest reports Shake, Rattle & Roll, the Huss Troika flat ride at Kings Island has been removed from the park and seems to no longer be listed on the website. The sign out front however says that the ride is “temporarily closed”, so perhaps it most likely undergoing an extensive rehab and will make a return later this season, or for the 2015 season. I’ve reached out to the park for an official comment and hope to know more soon.
(7/22/14) Congratulations to Kings Island where Diamondback gave its 10-millionth ride on Monday afternoon. Mike Brogan of Cincinnati was the 10-millionth rider and received a prize package full of cool Diamondback souvenir items.
2015 - New Flat Ride(s) - Rumor - (8/11/14) Screamscape sources tell us Kings Island may be planning on adding a new Flying Scooters ride into the park for 2015. I have to wonder if this might be just one part of a multi-ride package, similar to the multi flat-ride additions we saw Cedar Fair add to both Cedar Point (Gemini Midway) and Valleyfair (Route 76) in 2014. The anchors for both of those previous additions were Zamperla Disk’O Coasters, but Kings Island already has one in the form of Surf Dog (formerly: Avatar). The question is, will it go into Camp Snoopy with Surf Dog, or will it go to the other side of the park along with the returning Shake, Rattle & Roll flat ride?
