^The supports will be painted royal blue when the new paint job is complete.

I actually think that color scheme looks pretty good as it is now, but a totally new scheme is certainly welcome.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!

The blue supports will tie the ride in with Delirium's blue supports well. I enjoy seeing areas have some form of unity, so this is a plus for me! Also, the aqua/blue scheme is going to look great from the entrance plaza.

I feel like this paint scheme won't catch your eye/stand out as much from the interstate. I'm usually welcome to change, but I'm kind of hesitant to accept this one.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Could be worse. They didn't move it into Rivertown and douse it with neon green, so we have that. I thought the yellow/red scheme was just fine.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

I know that, I just meant that it would look nice like this! It'll also look great with the blue, just like Stinger/Leviathan.

Kings Island has sent us a small but very significant update regarding the 2012 operating season for the park--greatly expanded ERT benefits for season pass holders! =)

More details to come, but wanted to share the news that Kings Island Gold and Cedar Fair Platinum Season Passholders will be able to enjoy one (1) hour of early ride time every public operating day this year, with an expanded lineup of rides.

Kings Island begins its 40th anniversary season April 28. The park is closed April 29 for a private event but resumes weekend operation May 4-6. Daily operating begins May 11.

Does Cedar Fair allow ERT on all there parks if you have a Platinum Pass.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

For you Kings Island locals:
I know Dinosaurs Alive! was a hit with visitors and brought in a lot of money at your park last year (which is the reason for 4 more this season), but was the Dinosaurs Alive 3D movie popular at all? I couldn't imagine many people paying $2-$4 just to see a 10 minute 3D movie, so I was just curious. Spongebob 3D has finally left KD, and we are trying to figure out what's going in our Action Theater and hoping that it's not an upcharge movie.

Also, any Soak City construction/renovation updates or photos lately?
