Best time to ride FOF?

Monday, May 7, 2001 11:45 AM
I am going to PKI this Saturday, and I was wondering what time of the day would give me the shortest wait time for FOF. Does it go like CP and get really short during the eating time periods, or some other time.

Also how have the lines been for Beast, SOB, and Vortex. Those are the four that I want to get on, and hopefully Face/Off and Drop Zone.

I know you can't predict wait times, but over the past few weekends how have they been. You know just to get a rough guestimate.

Well, I recommend hitting the action Zone first as it can become very crowded at all times during the day an you may spend more time waiting for rides like Face Off, Drop Zone and Son of Beast compared to if you rode flight of Fear later in the day. I`ve been to PKI six times, twice on opening weekend and every weekend since. The last two weeks have been really crowded (Sundays). This past Sunday I waited 45 minutes for The Beast, but I did get some great views of the demolition of KCKC (another good view of the construction area is aborad the Kings Island and Miami Valley Railroad! I would go on Saturday as Sunday is mother`s day, Rodger Bingham of Survivor will be there on Sunday and gold pass holders get to bring in a guest for free. Enjoy your visit to Paramount`s Kings Island!

Paramount`s Kings Island-something big is coming for 2002, the park`s 30th anniversary!

The best time to get on FOF is in the morning. If you go late the line will be longer, because so many people want to ride it now. After that go straight for Beast, because it is also the ride everyone wants to get on, then hit SOB, Face/Off, and Vortex. Hopefully that will get you through the day faster. Don't forget to ride RRR and WTRA.

Thanks for the help you two, but you two say to do two different things. So, can I get some more input here from some of you other buzzers out there.

I'm not trying to offend you two who answered by asking for more help.

Well, if your willing to sacrifice some night time, I'd say the best time to ride FOF is at night, no one is ever there and you can ride a couple of times in a 1/2 an hour and still have time for the Beast.
