Is that open to the public or just us passholders? Either way I'll be there that day and can represent the forum if need be. I'm excited for new ride announcements especially a big coaster!

According to KI's Instagram It's open to the public

The time is coming when everything will be revealed and made known to all. After months of speculation as to what's behind the fence in Coney Mall, Kings Island will make a major announcement Thursday, August 15 at 10 p.m. All guests visiting the park that day are invited to attend. While Kings Island closes August 15 at 8 p.m., select rides, games and food locations will remain open in Coney Mall for guests to enjoy from 8-10 p.m. #TEOTWAWKI #KI2020 #KingsIsland

I'm gonna try to be there as well.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Are you suggesting on the current configuration or a new layout altogether?

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Interesting. I wonder why they’re set on making the announcement at 10 if the park closes at 8. Does it not get dark in Cincy till that late?

Someone said that it's going to be projected onto FoF's building, so total darkness would be ideal.

If it's constellation themed, it's fitting to announce it at night.

I was at the park today and had a great time. Very short lines everywhere. I did see a rideop with a Zodiac button on. I don't think they have a ride call that do they? If they do, it must be in the kiddie area. That would make sense with the "nighttime reveal" of this info. Just a thought. :airtimer:
