Poor dino.


I feel like that poor dinosaur is a victim of Instagram. Low quality, 70s-style filter, 3:4 aspect ratio...

It's not even 3:4 either. It's almost square.

I do hope that they get the dinosaur up and working again though. Hey, Expedition Everest, how's it going?

How is KI in terms of cleanness and an overall good park. Plan to trip in 2014

The park is very clean and I think the workers are better than average. They still are mostly teenagers so I guess good for teenagers. I think the park index on this site sums up KI perfectly.

I heard on Screamscape that 3 Brady kids is returning to Kings Island, it's been long since 1973 that Brady family visit Kings Island, and here's the video.

It's in 1973, and Kings Island was one year old, when it was filmed a episode of Brady.

Kings Island in my opinion really needs to let the Brady Bunch thing stay in the past, it has been 40 years since that recorded the Brady Bunch at the Island.

The thing is that no one under 35 remembers ever seeing anything Brady, it just seems to me to be a really long reach to get people at the park.
