Apparently Kings Island is open from 11am to 1am on Saturdays and Cedar Point is open 12pm to 12am. Anyone know why there is a two hour difference between the two?

They open later because most of their employees who have to work Friday night have to stay until 3AM usually, when the park closes at 1AM. Trust me, two years ago I had to work haunt until about 3AM then had to be back to KI to open Diamondback at like, 9am.

Yuuuuup. Good 'ol Kings Island.

Pretty impressed with Kings Island this year. Operations were great, and the whole park looked really nice quite honestly.
-Beast gave a great ride a night
-Windseeker looks fantastic and is a nice addition
-Fast Lane is totally worth the money. Skipped 90 minutes lines all Saturday.
-Flight of Fear put a bunch of laser lights and stuff in the tunnel...simple but awesome!
-Diamondback hauling A$$, seriously was awesome. At night all the fog fills in the bottoms of the drops; so much fun!
-Whole park completely decorated for Haunt
-Stunt Track has....new effects in the helicopter scene?!

But yeah on a Saturday where all parking was filled up, and over flowing out of Boomerang Bay parking, the only line the Fast Lane had us wait for was Firehawk. And they were running FL line to one station and the other line to the other station; 30 minutes for Fast Lane.

I actually had a great time, and I'm glad I didn't buy a pass. I won't buy a pass next year; and will probably just go once again in October.

^Totally agree with you there. Although next time, maybe I'll spring the extra cash for the Fright Lane passes. The lines for the mazes had to have been at least 2 hours which is expected since it was a Saturday and a really nice day.

Kings Island has sent us a press release about their Halloween offering involving Dinosaurs Alive!

There’s only one place where kids can trick-or-treat with life-sized dinosaurs: Dinosaurs Alive! at Kings Island.

Kids collect a T-Rex sized bag of candy in the shadows of more than 60 life-sized, moving dinosaurs, including the world’s largest animatronic dinosaur, the Ruyang Yellow River.

This is not your average trick-or-treat. There are candy stops, hundreds of pumpkins, prizes and crafts along the path in the 12.5-acre Dinosaur Park. Plus, kids will be able to uncover a giant skeleton at the dig site or decorate and take home their very own mini pumpkin.

The dinosaurs in the world’s largest animatronic dinosaur park are just half the fun. Everyone’s favorite rides and attractions are open during the day along with all sorts of family-friendly Halloween activities like a hay bale maze, petting zoo, costume contest, and so much more!

Trick-or-Treat with the Dinosaurs takes place every Saturday and Sunday in October from 11:00am until 6:00pm at Kings Island. A separate $5.00 admission ticket is required for Dinosaurs Alive!

Kings Island is open Friday nights from 7:00pm until 1:00am for Halloween Haunt; 11:00am until 1:00am Saturdays (Halloween Haunt begins at 7:00pm) and 11:00am to 7:00pm Sundays through October 30.
