Two quick questions. First, there's a possibility that I might be able to hit up the park this Sunday, and was wondering how the crowds have been the past weekend or so? Also, does Kings Island have any coupons or coke can promotions going on right now?

Thanks! Can't wait to try out Diamondback!

Your best discount would be to order tickets online.

I visited the park on April 25th (a Saturday), and there were hour waits for most of the major attractions. Sundays, however, are usually MUCH better!

As posted above, just buy online, you have two choices when you do that.

!. pay 33 dollars for one day
2. pay 47 for two days (doesn't have to be back to back).

i believe you can take a coke can to the gate and get discounted tickets though.

Son of Beast Closed Again

Postby angryemobeaver » Thu Jun 18, 2009 1:29 pm

So I check my Twitter today and notice my friend posted this.

"son of beast is closed for the year?.. what a shame. the front seat of the blue train is so smooth.. i was startin 2 appreciate that ride."

Than 5 Minutes later I get a Text saying

"So I go to KI today and was about to enter Top Gun when I notice Son of Beast had a sign infront of it's entrance saying it's closed for the Season"

Now I start to believe this rumor, and I ask more people and they all say SOB really has a sign infront of it. So I call KI. I asked if Son of Beast is really closed she said yes, I asked if it will reopen this season and she said she hasn't heard anything yet, and it's probably a rumor.

I really hope it's not true, Cause as some of you may know I love SOB, it's my second favorite Wooden Coaster at KI (Racer #1)

Do you think they could reuse some of the materials to make a new coaster?

If they could do that get a Plug-N-Play or GCI and name it "Revenge Of The Beast" or something. Or just call it Son Of Beast. Most GP wouldnt notice the difference. :roll:

^ No...

From my experience with the ride last season, I thought that Son of Beast was VERY good. Sure it was rough, but not unbearable in any terms [and I rode in the back row]

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That sucks. SOB was awesome last year and the year before when I rode it. Hopefully if it does end up re-opening, it's open when I go in late July.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

That's a shame. I really like this coaster. I know many people don't however.
