If you've been following Kings Island on social media or watching the Cincinnati and Dayton area TV news shows over the past few days, you're probably aware of the speculation running rampant over which ride will be removed after a sign saying "The air is eerily calm as we make final preparations for the ill-fated demise of one of our own" accompanied by a funeral setup was spotted on display in the Park over the weekend.

It has been confirmed by the Park the ride being removed is a roller coaster. The departing roller coaster will be revealed later this week.

Final rides on the roller coaster with its expiration date looming will begin this weekend, with the last days of operation occurring the final weekend of the Halloween season, October 26-28.

(Imagine “Cotton Candy on International Street” yum!) All jokes aside, that fudge idea doesn’t sound bad especially if I get to eat it all.
