    Vortex Gets a New Paint Job

    I saw this thread was the lates and got excited. Darn.

    I would imagine that as long as the track gauge matches, and a park wanted to purchase the new trains, then they would gladly sell them to existing GCI designed coasters. Looks like Ryan and I were thinking similar things. Trains are a highly expensive piece of hardware. And as Ryan said, unless the existing rolling stock is falling apart, most parks would rather fix their existing trains then shell out the money for new trains.

    I didn’t ask. I imagine the track gage is similar. I don’t think you’ll be seeing many park spending the money for new trains unless they need them.

    Did GCI state that any older product's they have built/installed can run the new Infinity Flyers if a park was interested in them?

    The GCI ride is a concept model. It's not necessarily going anywhere in that exact form. The new GCI trains are the Infinity Flyers (working title). They are designed for tighter turns and inversions.

    Marty Brennaman and Miss Ohio to kick off WF this weekend!

    I can hear it now...... "And This One Belongs to Kings Island"
  9. Today Kings Island announced that Major League Baseball Hall of Famer and Reds broadcaster, Marty Brennaman, will officially kick off WinterFest’s Opening Night. This Friday, Marty will ‘flip the switch’ to turn on more than five million lights including the park’s iconic Eiffel Tower. On Saturday, Miss Ohio 2018, Matti-Lynn Chrisman will have the lighting honors.

    Future plans for Firehawk's station discussion

    Is it now?

    I think its because I love how its rendered on the park map and would love to see it look like that in real life. Rougarou and Farenheit have my favorite coaster color scheme with orange track and blue supports.

    That is correct; I do remember seeing a coaster on a really old zoo map. And yeah, re: Dive coaster at Six Flags... I remember SFMM being rumored to get one some time ago.

    haha whys that what made you want to get rid of it and what did you get in return?

    The zoo actually had a coaster at one point Two parks come to mind when I think of potential Dive Coasters- California's Great America and strangely enough World's of Fun. I'm still shocked that we haven't seen a dive coaster come to a single Six park.

    Future multi launch coaster

    I wish I had more faith in Intamin because I wouldn't mind a blitz coaster at the park. Maverick is in my top 10 favorite coasters because of the launches, but more than that the beyond 90° drop, the ejector airtime, and the rapid transitions.

    Flat ride package?

    I'd like a flat ride that involves water, would help cool people down during the hot days of summer. Or at least something different than something that just spins you around in circles, Kings Island has enough of those rides.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I just don't see how a giga would in anyway pay homage to The Beast. Besides maybe tunnels, "theme",and simply being at Kings Island....but that's really reaching!

    Diamondback is totally different, you have to know that. I don't doubt it will be painted soon enough. An old coaster like Vortex, letting the paint go and allowing the rust get to the steel and fatigue it will only shorten its life span. Vortex has more stress on its supports than Diamondback also with it being a more jerky ride

    @VortexBFForever might disagree King Cobra got repainted before it was nixed, so did Shockwave at KD, as well as countless others. Not painting a coaster doesn't mean its leaving; if you went by that logic, Diamondback, Racer, and Adventure Express would also be on the chopping block.

    Lion Country Safari Mauling: An Untold Story

    I think it was irresponsible to have a just 20 years old working with lions. Sad story. A life lost far too young.

    If Vortex doesn't get painted soon I think it's a sign of things to come, or should I say go?

    I prefer the classic blue and orange. Hopefully it gets a paint job to liven it up especially with the Antiques right across from it.
