I went to Paramount`s Kings Island on April 14th. Let me tell you that it was pretty crowded. Started off with the Top Gun but they wouldn`t let my cousin ride because he was literally a hair too short!
Son of Beast was experiencing some technical problems and was cycling empty trains, so we headed on to Adventure Express, which only had two trains and not three, which added to the wait.
After AE we headed to the backwards Racer which only had the blue train running because the red train was on the siding. While waiting in line the frontwards Racer got stuck, and we ended up passing them going up the hill. On the Racer I noticed that the Beast was stuck at the top of the first hill. After getting off the Racer and riding the monster (the Racer wasn`t stuck anymore but still closed) I was going to ride Shake Rattle and Roll but THAT broke down.
We bypassed the beast due to a long line and a train sitting on the top of the first lift and rode the train. Demolition of KCKC has yet to begin. After a ride on Wild Thornberrys River Adventure and Phantom Theater, I decided it was not a good day to stay and ride roller coasters so i left!

You would figure that these parks have all off season to fix the kinks in these rides, so that when they open for the season they won't have so many problems.

So I see all of their problems happen the day after Friday the 13th. There were no problems on Friday when I was there. Not to mention almost nobody in the entire park. The longest wait of the day was Flight of Fear and that was still only 25 min because of only the one train.
