Well, first for next year, I would put an expansion behind Vortex. If you dont do that, then youre looking at long walks into woods for coasters. Of course, I would put in a coaster and maybe a flat ride. 2 year, I would improve the new expanded area, which would connect to the paths by TR:TR and Beast, in that area, and swing all the way to 7th portal. I would look at what the park needs (giga) and build it. 3rd year, I would look at the flat ride situation at the park, and put in some nice new designs that will attract some attention. 4th year i would put in another coaster, a 4d coaster somewhere between 200-250 ft. Finally to round out my 5 year plan, I would build a super Invertigo to compliment Face/off.

If I were the general manager I would do the following: year 1 a B&M floorless and a huss Frisbee. year 2 a flying coaster and a Chaos ride. year 3 a giga coaster and a giant ferris wheel. year 4 a B&M  inverted and a couple kids rides. year 5 a 4D coaster and some type of water ride.  That is my plan and it would all be done in a new area from Flight of Fear around to Vortex. I would use most of the old Lion Safari section not already used by SOB. Those are my hopes and dreams.

for 5 years this is what id do. I would put in a the tallest coaster in the world right over by where the racer and 7th portal is. 2nd year i would put a drop like tower of terror in disney world and a b&m floorless coaster mor by top gun in the back there.3rd i would go past behind the new tr:tr not disrupting the beast and put a B&M flying coaster like air in. 4th i would put in a flat ride i dont know where probobly around top gun area. that year i would change the theater and pu tin a differant 3d adventure. then year 5 i would make the best i would put a 4-d coaster in behind the vortex to thwe rigth (again not disruptin gthe beast) and i would put in a stand up B&M flying around by tombrider(kind of like above and blow it) and call it tomaraiders revenge.

After Tomb Raider, my five year plan would be for PKI.....

Year 1.  Get a flat ride package from Huss, Zamperla, and Mack. Scatter throughout the park.  Bring back Winterfest and the International Restaurant.

Year 2. Put in a B&M invert in Rivertown between TR:TR and White Water Canyon.  The Beast is the only coaster on that side of the park. BTW, I would never mess with the area around the Beast.  No path connecting Rivertown and Coney Mall would be built back there.

Year 3.  General improvements.  Take an off year.  Do extensive visitor surveys.  Definitely spruce up the Kings Island/Miami Valley Railroad with new animated scenes.

Year 4.  Add a Master Blaster water slide from NBGS to WaterWorks as well as do more improvements in the water park area.

Year 5. Since they have a hyper woodie, I would answer that with an Intamin hyper even though I love B&M hypers more. I would remove the simulator between the Racer turnarounds and build the ride back there.  Height - at least 260 feet and have a twisted layout like Expedition G-Force.  Don't want to be taller than the Eiffel Tower.

After TR:TR, here's what I'll do. 
Year 1: A B&M flying coaster like AIR over White Water Canyon and the train, but with more inversions, cavern themed tunnels, and a little bigger.  Call it the Bat.  Cost: $15million
Year 2: Work on improving Rivertown with three flat rides by Huss, Chance, and Zamperla.  To help ease the overcrowding in Action Zone. Coast: $20 million
Year 3: Add 2 more water slides in Water Works.  One like Master Blaster near the wavepool and the other like the Royal Flush in Vegas across from the burger joint.   Cost:  ?
Year 4: Build a new theme area surrounding FoF.  Have it be a Sci-Fi theme section with some prototype flat rides.  Cost: $ 20 million
Year 5: Add a B&M speed coaster towards the back of the park next to the fowards Racer's turnaround.  Have this steel behemoth stretch all the way towards the Little Miami River and make a turnaround close to the river.  Call it "Steel Behemoth" or just "Behemoth".  Cost: $20 million

Hows that for a 5 year PKI improvement.

In five years, the park will have a hyper looping water coaster, a giga, a flying, a floorless, and a 800 foot wooden called the nephew of the son of the beast. Trust me, I know for sure. I talk to the CEO on a daily basis.
