    Don and the other KI higher-ups when they look at the ridiculous giga concepts on here.

    Exiting DB, the ride op on the mic reiterates that shoes must be worn, because apparently an oncoming rider wasn't. A teenager nearby says "no shoes? What are they... nudists?!"

    Just rode fronthe of Vortex (taking my aspirin now) and I have to say this. @VortexBFForever was driving and she is the smilingist operator I have seen all day. Can't tell if she is enjoying it or laughing at the rideas. LOL

    Not necessarily a say, but a do... While I was driving Vortex during the last hour of operation today, I saw a puff of smoke (or vape?) come up from a train I was bringing in. For the first time ever, I spieled "Just a friendly reminder that smoking is not allowed on any ride here at Kings Island...yep, I saw that!" The culprit had an "oops, you caught me" look as he exited. At least he was a good sport about it.

    Mods can we ban this guy for this tragic post? No one gets rid of Woodstock Express/Fairly Odd Coaster/Beastie/Scooby Doo!

    This response makes no sense to my comment. An Intanin coaster started your love of coasters, we get it. There is a first coaster for all of us. The overwhelming announcing it and over defending them is what other members are getting irritated with. At this point we all know your position on the subject. I am on day 3 of being at CP. The only coasters that we have had issues with down time have been the Intamin coasters. That does defend the park wanting to go with a B&M. I am not coming on KIC to go team B&M. Everyone has their favorites and that is fine.

    I went on The Bat yesterday, which is something I rarely do, an the ride op told us to enjoy our ride on Top Gun.

    The twist however is that the top used to be level with the path. Vortex isn't sinking, however the entire rest of the park is sinking around Vortex. So really Vortex is getting taller.

    I'm hoping for a reschedule but I was glad to see it was cancelled when I saw the weather. I'm still going to the park, but while I have fun on rainy days, it would make setting up and taking pictures harder. And the resulting shots of waterlogged riders probably aren't what they're looking for to help sell the perfect summer experience

    Yesterday, in line for Vortex, a group of non-enthusiasts overhearing our conversation about the ride asked us about it sinking into the ground. I held back my laughter. A bit disheartening to see that the rumor has spread beyond enthusiasts, but I was glad that I could dispel it for them!

    Attempting to turn the conversation into a debate about B&M versus other manufacturers is off-topic for this thread, no matter what justification you use to do it. You've been asked to keep it on-topic here.

    GM Mike Koontz just stated that he recommended in a presentation with the other parks that a giga should come to Kings Island.

    I remember when I was little, there was a 30 on The Beast sign and I mistook for "3D" and I said "Is this ride in 3D? I don't want to ride it if it is" thinking about that just cracks me up

    @Tera Ryzing And what law, pray tell, could people possibly be breaking with that choice? Its no different than taking that list and transferring it on here via posting.

    Overheard this one yesterday. Woman (to her husband): “I don’t know if you remember, but that [points to WindSeeker] used to be where Banshee is now.” Huh?

    Dorms maybe coming to Dorney

    If those kids were applying and taking said jobs, then they wouldn't need to hire international workers. The truth is, that staffing has been such an issue in the past 2-3 years that this is needed. Also, KI is getting dorms built. They will be located behind Timberwolf and GWL.

    I think it was mentioned that they redid some of the footers, however, I highly doubt they are totally new. Also, please don't correct me and say it's supposed to be called a footing.

    Should have pointed to the batwing and said “you aren’t supposed to say this out loud, but that used to be level with the rest of the ground!”

    Really? Just really? Do you enjoy doing this type of stuff? You may be one of the softest people on Earth if you think the park B&M's are soft. Keep in mind, once again, this is about speculating the next giga. Hence, the name of the thread. Not a thread for talking about B&M coasters being "rough".
