King's Island line closure procedure

Tuesday, March 13, 2001 11:15 AM
I'm considering (like many others hereabouts) of including SFKK and PKI in a Stark Raven Mad weekend. It's fits, since I cant be making to many trips to the middle west (east). Anyway, I was thinking of on Saturday, hanging out a few hours @ SFKK and spending SunDAY before my flight back @ PKI. It dawned on me that this would preclude me from riding the Beast at nite (something I have never done). So I came up with the great idea of leaving SFKK early and ending the evening @ PKI (I have a PKD pass so admission fee is no problem). NOW, the schedule says the park closes @ 10pm that evening. But what I want to know is what time do they usually close the ride lines? I need to know HOW early I need to be there.

PKI is good about closing MOST lines at closing and not early....except in extreme cases where the line is like 3 hours+ long.....at least while I have been there.

Usually for the Beast they won`t close the line untill after the fireworks have started at closing time. Once, on a weekday in July, my cousin and I rode The Beast like 5 times between 9:15 and ten. We got in line the last time at about 9:58. By the time we were on the ride and going up the lift hill the fireworks were going off to the left of The Beast

I'm going to stop at PKI as well, but I'm fairly irritated that SFKK doesn't open until 4 that day or something.

Last year it seemed they cut the lines off right at closing and allowed the queues to finish out, except for SOB, which they cut off two to three hours before closing (due to the long lines and one train running).

A quick look at the SFKK website shows that the park hours are 4 PM - 9 PM 0n Friday May 11th and 10 AM - 9 PM on Sat May 12th
