Do we expect all coasters running that first weekend? I'm at Kings Island on the 27th most likely and thinking about swinging by KK on my way home on the 28th. Never been before. Appears that is the first day for GP?

Man, it sure looks like there's going to be a lot of airtime on this thing!

Everything about this ride looks great for an intermediate coaster.

On a side note, why wouldn't I expect the POV to have a cheesy Travel Channel rock track overlay? The standard hasn't changed since the 90's.

Looks great.

I can't imagine how cool it would be if the propeller spun though.

Everything, but the water park will be open.

No, no, no, see it's all in keeping with the theme. The P-47 Thunderbolt pilots the zero cars are based on listened to the same thing in the skies over war-torn Germany.

Yes, all coasters and more than likely, all the rides will be open. This includes Kentucky Flyer. The 27th is a buyout day for the park and the 28th is the first day open to the public.

Thanks folks. If weather is good and I hit KI, I'll def swing by KK on Sunday before heading home.

Looking for someone who could attend the Kentucky Flyer media event on the evening of April 25th for TPR. I would need photos & video taken and a trip report posted. Please email at robbalvey@themeparkreview.com if you're interested in attending! Thank you!
