Official PKI anouncement far off

Posted Wednesday, December 6, 2000 10:24 AM | Contributed by coastersrz

I received an email from PKI spokesman Jeff Seibert and he said the PKI`s website won`t be updated with what is new for next year untill early February. He also said that PKI will open on Saturday April 7, 2001.

April 7th? Isnt that kind of early for a park in Ohio?

I doubt the park will get anything really big for this year anyway, since the last two years have been really big years for the park. Oh well. At least season passes were basically free.

The last few years they opened around the 14th or 15th of April. I wish other area parks followed their lead by opening in April. Oh well. We usually make King's Island our first coaster trip of any given year, and next year will be no exception.

Okay I would actually like to go to the park and not become an ice cicle. I am sorry but when I go in May sometimes it is even cold. I doubt if people will flock in great numbers to PKI

No kidding, Jephry. Its only like in 50's in April. Imagine going to CP around that time.

Sometimes the weather holds out, and sometimes not. PKI had really nice early and late weekends this year, though it was a little rainy for a good part of the summer. Its all a game of Chance.

Alright, I never posted this speculation becuase I thought that PKI would announce before it became amusing, but I can't resist. I mean, this is so obvious if you look at the facts:

1. The ride won't be a record-breaker, because there isn't the dosh and the market will be looking for cool rather than big in 2001

2. Non-record breaking rides must be themed or named to promote other Paramount brands

3. PKI are brain damaged when it comes to colourful paint schemes.

The new ride will be a dive coaster with a long underground descent - think Oblivion.

Think Summer movie. Think name that sounds like a ride, but doesn't have anything to do with a ride, a la "Face/Off".

What's the big black hunk of steel that drops straight down on polyurethane wheels?

What the ride whose track drops out, making riders scream and shout?

They say that ride 'Shaft' is a baaad mutha....

Well, actually they already said it will be a kiddie inverted coaster... The rst of the deails weren't told.

Yeah,at 72ft tall it'll be the world's tallest "kiddie" coaster.

72' tall?

I know it won't be, but wouldn't it be nice if PKI bought an Arrowbatic?

Its good that they are re-doing the flume and keeping the family theme with it, but when will we ever see any new flat rides? The ones they have are great (Flyers) but I really don't want to wait 30 minutes for a scrambler.

I really want to see a nice large wheel near the Coney Mall midway. *** This post was edited by john peck on 12/9/2000. ***

I heard that the kiddie ride was going to be an Arrowbatic. And as for opening early, my best friend and I went last year the first Saturday in November, the last day the park was open. It didn't really bother me, so you can expect me at the front gate to PKI on April 7, 2001

The name of the new Vekoma coaster is Rugrats Runaway Reptar coaster. I think they could have come up with something a little better, not based on the rugrats.
