    Don OUT as PR

    Inside sources have confirmed that Don is no longer the Public Relations Area Manager at Kings Island. I want to be one of the first to congratulate Don on 10 years as the PR person at Kings Island. Career highlights include amazing world wide coverage of Robbie Knievel's record breaking jump at the park in 2008 and nation wide coverage of Mystic Timbers during its opening. I wish Don well on his future endeavors. Sources say that you will still see him around the park, though. He will be making sure you to still wish you a #KIBestDay. "If Don does half as good of a job on the mobile app as he did in PR then we're all in for a real treat." -Clark W Griswold

    Don OUT as PR

    I'm really sorry to hear about this. Few times have I known someone to embody a role quite as well as Don Helbig has done as the public face of Kings Island. Whoever will be the new PR Manager is going to have some big shoes to fill. I am glad to hear he won't be leaving the organization entirely. Best wishes in your new position, Don!

    Beast cars

    Of course eveyone know's I am, and always will be a Beast fan... But, I am personally of the opinion that Beast needs it's trains replaced. The existing trains are considered the "originals" but they have been chopped, altered, padded, divided, dissected, renovated, changed, updated, downgraded, upgraded, conformed, and manipulated to the point that they are not remotely the same trains it started with... I'd actually go as far to say that in reality on about 10% or less of the trains is still "original." Just think about it... they were immediately altered after opening (interior hand-stitched tufted padding was taken out, the headlamp removed and replaced with the logo), then they were cut down from 4-benchers to 3 within a few years of operation, and in the subsequent 30 seasons had the buzz bars removed, headrests added, seat dividers extended, accessible strapping added, extra padding added, seat belts added, skids removed for fins etc etc etc. I don't at all think it would be some horrible thing to replace the trains completely. Frankly, a switch to a different type of train from the EXTREMELY dated PTC's would help re-invigorate the ride IMO - allowing for more rider comfort and also allowing for more guests to ride (let's face it... people are fat these days - so everything from cars, to airlines to movie theaters are having to address this.) It would be nice if PTC had an updated version of the trains to offer. But as far as I know, PTC continues to produce the same archaic trains they were making 100 years ago. I understand they do a good business for those that want new trains identical to the older ones - but they have virtually NO other options as far as styling or articulation, just wooden boxes on wheels. Heck - one of the main reasons The Beasts elements are so far apart is because the longer PTC trains couldn't articulate directional changes abruptly. The only option PTC gives it's customers for tighter elements is shorter cars yet still non-articulating. If The Beast changed trains, it would be a necessary advancement. The originals, or AN original, could be kept for display. If I was given a magic wand, I'd probably wave it at The Beast and orchestrate a complete station, theme element and train overhaul. The water, mining Co, Beast warning sign, tc would all be updated/brought back. And it would get a test seat - which it has needed desperately for decades. Of course it's very easy for me to be a keyboard critic and think that it would be that easy - it would likely take at least a million dollars to make that happen - alterations, permits, inspections, insurance adjustments etc etc etc. And why buy the Mercedes if the Cadillac is working just fine? No matter - I still love it ;-)

    The price of fuel always comes up when discussing a return of the Antique cars. I don't think a lot of people have realized that the energy used to tug multiple-ton coaster trains up lift hills all day long isn't free.

    As many have noticed, I've not been posting as much on KIC in the last year or so. I've been focusing on combining my passion for amusement parks and photography. I'm excited and honored to announce I've joined Shaggy on the Kings Island website as a guest blogger. I've had a love of for the park that stretches back to my first visits in the late 70's. I hope to share stories reminiscing about the past, sharing the now, and also looking towards the future of the park. My first blog was posted yesterday.

    Just wanted to point out that permanent amusement/theme park attractions require HOURS and DAYS of operational test runs, cycles and inspections prior to passing inspection and accepting riders. In addition, coaster/ride chassis undergo routine stress tests such as zinc baths and black light inspection during off seasons. Fair and carnival rides don't. The public/media cannot/does not differentiate between permanent and portable rides - they lump them all into one category. This casts a black cloud on parks of which guest safety is a primary concern. For years and years there's been a need for a different set of rules... however these rides continue to slip through the cracks. (no pun intended) I am not blaming anyone - it was an accident of course - and no one wants to see anyone harmed or injured on any ride. But fair/carnival rides undergo an inordinate amount of wear and tear outside of plain operation for tear down and set up (not to mention travel on the backs of trucks.) About 20-some years ago I witnessed a Tilt-O-Whirl failure at a fair. The ride partially collapsed when the entire back half of one of the cars came off mid-operation with riders. No one was injured - thank Heavens - but it scared me enough that I don't ride them and recommend that others avoid them as well. I'm actually surprised that Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey hasn't spoken up yet - this is the perfect platform for him to grandstand about how awful rides are.

    Dufunctland: Son of Beast

    FYI, while the video is *dramatic*, and tells the basic tale, it barely scratches the surface as to what all went wrong with SOB. It doesn't mention the issues with the designer... a very famous one... that wouldn't ride it... and who himself forced the park into breaking the 200' barrier. It doesn't mention that the park was given two options via a scale graph paper model that allowed them to remove the loop if they wanted. It doesn't talk about the fiasco that was the announcement... for which the park and Montel were not prepared to make... which resulted in a complete dismissal of the PR/Marketing Team. It doesn't mention that it went through 2 logo and theme changes. It doesn't mention that it operated with riders first on Easter of 2000. It doesn't mention that it operated, unaltered, for a select few (your's truly included) before it opened to the general public - but was temporarily re-profiled before the public ever got on. It doesn't mention that in the first weeks of operation, wood coaster crew members were staffed at questionable parts of the ride all-day, every day, to monitor the structure in order to prevent any failures. It doesn't mention that PTC turned down the construction of the trains. It doesn't mention the addition of trim breaks in two areas of the course - or how kicker tires were added to prevent rollbacks. Finally, it doesn't mention that it operated over 4 times as long as "The Bat" which was riddled with issues yet is revered by so many. I wouldn't call it a failure, but I wouldn't call it a success either. I have a long, vested history with SOB. And it will likely go down as one of those (in)famous coasters that people will reminisce (good and bad) for eternity. Ultimately, my opinion is that SOB was waaaay ahead of it's time and technology. It single-handedly ushered in a new era of wooden coasters and could be credited as the modern-day genesis of inversions on "wooden" coasters. Was it one of my favorite coasters? No, not by a long shot. But I sure did enjoy all the hub-bub and excitement surrounding it. Frankly, the loss of the loop crippled the ride by removing it's best feature. The decision to add G-trains must have been made by someone that had never ridden in one... I could have saved them a lot of trouble by sending them to ride "The Boss" at SFSTL. Prior, SOB was rideable - but these severe and drastic knee-jerk alterations compromised how it was designed to operate and made it brutal. I rode it dozens (if not hundreds) of times prior to the change. (Why, I rode 21 consecutive times for Travel/History Channel filming with a camera mount beside and in-front of me with no issues.) However, I only rode it about 3 times after the loop loss and train switch... it was horrendously bad and intolerable... far too rough for me. I found it ironic that they actually made the complaints WORSE with the changes. My last ride was at night in Sep of 2008... and when I got off I knew I would never ride it again... so I said a quiet little goodbye then and there. Bittersweet... the coaster that never was what it should have been... I do wonder what RMC could have done with the ride - it would likely have been a top 10 for most. That's what happened with "Rattler" at Fiesta Texas - SOB's pre-curser that was plagued by the exact same structural and size issues and built by the same people that built SOB... RCCA (The video fails to mention that lawsuits were filed against them for that coaster too.) But truth is, the PR damage is what killed SOB and why it's not there anymore. There was no "converting it" when people would always associate it with sensationalistic news stories of horror rides... like this video. Finally, so much time and effort (not to mention $) had been sunk into it, the park just gave up on it... and traded the clunker for a brand-new Mercedes.

    Tonight right before park close I got to witness the 1 Millionth rider strap in for a ride on Mystic Timbers . I was exactly 3 trains behind him. After @gforce1994 and I got off our ride I was able to get a picture of the lucky rider. This was his first ride on Mystic Timbers!

    Technically the proper term is footings, not footers. Footers is the slang term that is often used. I doubt that they reuse the footings on the train that were used to house the displays from when they had Winterfest in 2005. I am excited to see how many lights they have for Winterfest this time around. They seemed to be lacking in that department with Winterfest 2005. But then again, after having visited Dollywood`s Smoky Mountain Christmas numerous times, the lights there are amazing, so comparing KI to that is like comparing apples and oranges (at least it was for Winterfest 2005). I hope this incarnation gives it a run for its money.

    The first Rocky Mountain Construction "Raptor" track roller coaster has been announced for Six Flags Fiesta Texas. "Wonder Woman will climb a 113-foot hill, drop about 100 feet straight down at 90-degrees, and hit a top speed of 52 mph. It will include overbanked turns and the free-floating sensation known as airtime. Among its three inversions will be a "180-degree stall," in which the train will roll halfway over and suspend riders for a few agonizing moments before it unrolls and returns them right-side-up."

    Maximum grade for the cars is 6%. I would be looking at the large mostly flat fields around the middle of the park. Wrap it around the carousel or around Junk lot stunt coaster. I have provided a color coded guide to what I think are the easiest locations. Separate areas can be linked using a bridge so there is no need for the ride to be located in a single colored area. It would also not be too difficult to move a path or two. I think red is the most likely location with a bridge to allow a path next to the store. I did a quick measurement of what I think a path could look like in this area and I got a length of 1350 ft. Which is about the normal length of these rides. The area in yellow and purple are a little too small on their own but you can combine yellow with part of red or yellow and purple and get plenty of space.

    I rode The Racer this season and noticed the blue side was a tad rougher than the red side, which is different than last season. I would love to see The Racer receive the Ghostrider treatment from GCI, but I don't know if the park would do that, considering we just got Mystic Timbers. But a retrack and a repaint are definitely due. Anything to keep our beautiful Philadelphia Toboggan woodie from falling the way of Hurler and Mean Streak. As for the Antique Cars returning rumor, that would be a cool thing to see since that was my favorite ride when I was little. But the beauty of the original Ohio Overland Auto Livery and Les Taxis was that they interacted with one another on their paths. I'm sure that they wouldn't add two because of capacity. If the park is planning a return of the ride then that is a good move for people who don't ride big rides. Plus, if they put it in the International Street section, they could revive the 'Les Taxis' name, as it would tie in with the Eiffel Tower and the European theming of International Street. We just got a new and improved playlist, so this could be the beginning of the re-internationalization of International Street.

    It is not extremely graphic so I will post this. It is a photo from a dutch forum which shows the broken arm. I am pretty confident that the row did not strike the floor until after it had already detached from the arm. This impact appears to release at least two of the restraints which allowed two individuals to come loose. Which is why the video shows two individuals flying through the air. Accidents like this are not acceptable. Either there needs to be more inspections or this ride needs redesigned. But it should never occur again.

    I wonder why Kings Island just don't put the Coney Mall sign back up. I've seen so many people clamoring for this. It would been one of the cheapest things they have ever done IMO. Plus the positive feedback they would get from this would be priceless. They amount of people this would please is huge. I just don't know why they don't put it back up. In the grand scheme of things this would be pocket change for KI.

    I have no idea how much fuel people think these use. They run modern Honda engines which are only 9HP. It is the same type of engine from a power tool, like a large compressor. I think it is a GX270 engine. Which at the full 9 HP for 8 hours will only burn 6 gallons of gas, less at idle. Assuming 12 cars that means the entire ride burns 72 gallons of fuel a day. Even at $5 a gallon that is only $360 a day in gas. At current gas prices more like $180 a day in fuel. That is not the price for one car that is for 12. I am pretty confident the park can afford it.

    Chapter 2- Six Flags St. Louis http://themeparkreview.com/forum/files/img_0063__copy_.jpg The 70's where a historic time if you're an amusement park enthusiast. Parks were being erected nearly every year luring guests to their gates with their nostalgic charm and promise of adventure. Six Flags St. Louis, or as some remember it- Six Flags Over Mid America, was one of the many amusement parks that were built in the 70s. As you could imagine, to go along with the spirit of constructing an amusement park, there had to be a train ride. Similar to other amusement parks at the time, Six Flags St. Louis featured a 36" narrow gauge railroad that encompassed the entire park. Also like other parks, it was Crown Metal Products out of Pennsylvania who brought the idea of a miniature railroad to life. The Six Flags Over Mid America Railroad, or Six Flags Railroad for short, featured two authentic steam spitting locomotives powered on propane and propane accessories. The railroad line ran similar to a dog bone shaped layout where the trains ran beside, and even above, popular park attractions. There were two stations, one being the station for the 1904 World's Fair, and the other was in a section called "Old Chicago." There were a couple unique features on this railroad. The first was the placement of stations. The two stations were placed parallel to each other by only 458 feet which made walking from station to station a lot quicker and more effective than riding the train. The second was that the line actually traveled through the engine shed as opposed to beside it. So while guests would ride the train, they would get a glimpse at what the inside of the train shed looked like. I nicknamed these locomotives the "Apple Brothers" because their coats resembled the colors of a green and a red apple. Maybe Applebees could have sponsored the train ride. The #6, red locomotive, now named the Tommy G Robertson, was one of the two locomotives custom built for the park. The locomotive featured a apple-red paint scheme with yellow decals and a golden headlamp. The train featured two domes and a HUGE balloon stack rarely seen on any Crown models. The locomotive pulled four standard crown passenger coaches as well as a caboose. The smokebox door originally bared the #6 but from what I heard, an engineer lit the firebox incorrectly resulting in damage to the smokebox. Now the smokebox door has the initials TR for Tommy Robertson. Like the #552, (see Chapter 1), this was one of my favorite Crown designs. It had a simple color scheme and, like I said before, a HUGE smoke stack. Later this locomotive would be given a black boiler jacket which resembled a traditional 4-4-0 from the old west. Later on the red boiler jacket would reappear and the domes would be painted black as well as the yellow decals. Somewhere throughout its existence it lost the logs on its tender giving it a less authentic look. The #5, green locomotive, named the Little Rock, was one of the two locomotives built for the park. This locomotive featured a traditional Crown balloon stack and three domes. The locomotive was painted green with yellow decals and a golden headlamp. Like its brother, the #5 pulled 4 red coaches but also carried a green caboose. There is very little photo evidence to prove that the #5 pulled a green caboose, however, there was one picture that showed a bright green caboose. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b6/Six_Flags_Railroad_-_St._Louis.jpg There were many changes made to the railroad in the mid 80s. Popularity for the railroad decreased and the park decided to "downsize" the train ride. One of the biggest changes to the railroad was the selling of #5 to Busch Gardens. Realistically Six Flags never really needed two locomotives on the line it ran. The stations where so close together that it wasn't really useful as a transport ride as compared to Disney or even Kings Island. Could the railroad still have functioned with two locomotives? Yes. However, operations would still only require one locomotive. I read somewhere that there were so many railroad crossings that it made two locomotive operations a nightmare (Notice that the Soak City crossings stay down during two train operations at Kings Island? Imagine that times about 4.) In addition, there was really no point in two train operations when one train could barely be filled. All in all, it was an economic decision by the park and they were right by it. (I wish Kings Dominion had the same idea back in the 90s....) The Tommy G Roberston, or the red and black locomotive, still operates on the line to this day. The line is now called the Tommy G Robertson Railroad and has remained a nostalgic and popular attraction for families. I always considered this locomotive the unofficial mascot for Six Flags St. Louis as it is still seen in the background of many SFSL ads. The Tommy G Robertson shares a shed with a narrow gauge Plymouth diesel shunter which I can only assume was acquired after the selling of engine #5. Lately, the TGR has only pulled three coaches and the caboose as opposed to four. Capacity low or perhaps a damaged wheel? The roofs of the coaches have been painted a royal blue, perhaps to give the ride a more patriotic feel? The ride still performs daily operations and is used for the parks seasonal events. https://shipsnmoreships.smugmug.com/keyword/Loco;busch/i-H7kb73H/A The #5, formerly green engine, operates for Busch Gardens in Tampa Florida. Like locomotive #601 (see Chapter 1), this engine received a very radical overhaul. The original green was repainted a bright yellow, something you rarely see on a steam locomotive, with a red cowcatcher, green wheels as well as green and red decals. I assume it was repainted yellow because there was already a green locomotive at the time. The domes (as seen on the picture above) were "harvested" from a previous Busch Gardens locomotive which is residing sadly near their roundhouse facility. The cab was modified with two large exhaust fans for those humid Tampa days. The locomotive's original cars and caboose were sent to Busch Gardens Williamsburg where they became park of the Alpine Express back in the late 90s. The engine currently pulls #601's old consist painted yellow to resemble the engine. The lesser used out of the three operating locomotives, this locomotive only sees action during busy days when three train operations are required or when its giving #601 or #9 a break. But that's a chapter for another day Questions? Comments? Please leave them below and please let me know what other railroads I should do. I'll try to post more chapters in the following months!

And have had countless walks of shames. She recognized me from the last time I was at the kingdom. And I told her. Yeah. Probably wouldn't fit. Then she had a bright idea. "Hey. We usually get them big people in on rows 6 or 7. Let's try that!" She got me out of my row and took me up to row 6 right. Pushed me down as best as she could. And she looked back. And the guy gave a thumbs up. She gave me the biggest highfive. Said you fit! And told everyone to clap and say he gets to ride! I hadn't smiled that big in a while. And after my rides on storm chaser I went to guest relations and gave her a guest compliment. She deserved it. She went out of her way for me. Great hour at Kentucky Kingdom.

    Having an Antique Car attraction that follows the current path of Dinosaurs Alive and having one that sits where Flight Commander used to sit are two different ideas. One could possibly work, the other is just way out of the question. Too bad KI doesn't have rights to Hanna-Barbara anymore, cause you could merge a car ride with Dinosaurs Alive, have the cars shaped like Flintstone cars, and you could drive through Bedrock. I personally wouldn't mind driving a car through the woods and seeing Dinosaurs. That might actually be sort of neat.
