are adjusted height requirements for nine of the park's rides, from the Beastie (raised from 36 inches to 40 inches, with chaperone) to the Racer (raised from 44 inches to 48 inches). Also affected are the Wild Thornberrys River Adventure; White Water Canyon; Shake, Rattle & Roll; Scrambler; Monster; Viking Fury; and Congo Falls, all of which require a minimum height of 40 inches (with chaperone).
I wonder why they are changing the height requirements this year.
Its also interesting that the campground is going away. Everytime that I have been to kings island during the summer, that place was packed.

Why are there so many "former" restaurants this season?
(the former location of the Bakery &
Pretzel Shop, which moves next door into the former Chippery spot). -- Does this mean Chippery didn't do very well last season? I was very impressed with their selection, and the chips were a nice snack before eating lunch.
The former Mandarin Cuisine -- I suppose this could be the result of Mandarin deciding to no longer work with Paramount, or PKI is just going for something new, but I had always thought they did very well also. Anyone have any info?

I'm not surprised if the Chippery is gone. It was easily the worst food value in the park, and my guess is that they didn't do much repeat business. What was it, something like $4 for half an ounce of chips? Proving that the Starbuck's model doesn't work with potato chips. :)
