Interesting fact from Kings Island.

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Interesting fact from Kings Island.

Post by Waterboy » Thu Aug 27, 2009 6:21 pm

I went to KI today and at the big Nick Store they had everything 75% off and stuff was flying off the shelves. Could Cedar Fair be getting rid of the Nick U. theme?

VERY INTERESTING!!!!!!!!!

Well with the nick contract up in a year or so now's the time to scrap it all. So the real question is will the Beastie once again be the Beastie or will it have yet another name?

I'm pretty sure they haven't unloaded the Beastie signage, because I was prepared to shell out some serious bucks for it!

The Kings Island website had a confirmation of this early today. It's gone now though. I'm very curious what the transformation is going to be like.

They pre-posted the Planet Snoopy page on a news system that's known to be leaky (people have been using the glitch to find pre-posted announcements for years), then pitched a fit and pulled the page, but not before trying to force the KI fan sites to ban discussion of it after people found the page.

whatever they try to do.... we all know the cat is out of the bag. If it was not for the KI news, we could have easily surmised it from seeing it happen at the other four Paramount Parks.

This might be the most anti-announcement ever. I feel the same way Bratman did... yip de freaking doo.
