PKI major announcement soon.

Monday, January 8, 2007 5:21 PM
Looking at PKI's web site...

http://www1.paramountparks.com/kingsisland/index.cfm#actions

It says to be on the lookout for a major announcement. I wonder what it could be?

Hmmmmm....cough...x flight...cough. *** Edited 1/8/2007 11:01:22 PM UTC by crazy horse***

One thing that I noticed while looking around the site is that on the season passes for next year it just says KINGS ISLAND and has the Cedar Fair logo above it. I checked to see if this was the case with all of the other Paramount Parks and Kings Island is the only one like that.

^That there's a Great Wolf in Bearcat country? ;)

Just kidding....it's a Gator nation, kids... :)


Oh, and I still think it's weird that they're PARAMOUNT King's Island...might give us a clue as to the *accounting structure* inside of CF....recalling the thread when there was discussion about how GL would be *credited* for the value of X-Flight and PKI would be *charged* for it...

Pardon my ignorance but what was their daily admission price in the past?

I noticed that you can purchase admission online for $29.95. Is that more or less then in the past?

Could it be something new, 10m is a lot for just X-Flight and of course SOB too but still how much does it really cost to fix supports and get new trains.

A couple of million easily. Trains are quite expensive....in fact, the single most expensive part of any coaster. Everything else is either planks of wood or chunks of steel.

Still, don't underestimate the cost of the work/retracking, etc. SOB has already had millions upon millions dumped into upkeep. ALthough I don't have a source handy, I've read that 6 years of work have almost equaled the initial costof the ride.

What? Like rip out all of the trees and pave over every remaining square yard of grass?

And putting in the beautiful TIJ:ST was a beauty move in the right direction? Cedar Fair isn't perfect, but Paramount has it's faults as well.

LOL. It's funny because it's true. Knott's Berry Farm is a prime example. A park that used to pulled part of its beautiful atmosphere and charm from large patches of beautiful lawns now more closely resembles a permanent fairground.

From my perspective, Cedar Fair could learn a lot more from things Paramount was doing although I do believe CF will be a lot more realistic as far as new attraction additions go overall. Paramount never quite got that new ride capacity thing right for any of their parks even if general park capacity was solid.
