Park News - (9/18/15) A reader sent in a couple of photos showing off the old Club Blood haunt location, which will be used for a new haunt experience called Blackout this year.
(8/7/15) Good news for Kings Island fans... the Drop Tower was reported as being back in action on Thursday. As for the problem... no one is 100% certain, but there have been some bad storms in the area before it closed down, so it may have been wind related.
(8/4/15) Anyone know what happened to the Drop Tower ride at Kings Island? A guest sent in a report on Monday with a picture showing off the lift cart still sitting at the top of the tower and said the staff had closed off the entire area around the tower as well so you couldn't get near it. Anyone know what was going on?
2016 - Tropical Plunge - (8/20/15)
Kings Island has announced their expansion plans for 2016... a little something called Tropical Plunge that will add a new seven-story tall, six-slide attraction tower. This looks to be similar to what we've seen added to other Cedar Fair parks in the past couple of years, including Kings Dominion last year, and Carowinds is rumored to get the same in 2016 as well. Three of the slides will be new body-slides that will start off your ride inside a drop-pod, where you wait for a trap-door to open under your feet. The other three slides will be tube slides, including one that will feature several high-g spiraling drops. Kings Island will also open a new bigger parking lot entrance on the north side of the parking lot with 13 entrance lanes. This new entrance will replace the current North and South toll plazas.
