  1. I think further clarification on what can be posted or not posted needs to be revised in light of the advancements in technology since the ToS were first developed. The ToS are clear that "Posting information that is not public record and could be damaging to the reputation, business and/or day to day operation of Kings Island or its affiliates is a violation of the terms of service. Any information posted claiming to be from an inside source or claiming to be confirmed, when not being released from Kings Island or Cedar Fair, must be posted along with the name of the source. Failure to do so

  2. So when someone finds the next coaster's layout, are we going to blacklist that as well?

  4. I made a dive coaster concept. I don't want a dive coaster, but since it's a possibility, I decided to make a concept. The name is Sonic Boom!.

  5. The park wants to keep International Street a surprise until the park opens. We are respecting the park`s wishes on this. No links to photos, or actual photos will be allowed.

  6. I came across this article today posted on another site. I’m not sharing this as a promotion of another site, but as a promotion of the message it conveys. I recommend everyone on here should read it. https://www.coaster-net.com/blogs/have-enthusiast-taken-the-fun-out-of-roller-coasters Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Hamilton County used to pay for aerial imagery, not satellite. There would be “+” and “L” signs on lots of manhole covers to make sure shots were lined up correctly.

  9. I believe it had almost everything to do with the decision to move it to AZ and make it part of that lineup for the "new area" in 1999. They may have waited it out for R&D of the new design that would be ready in a few years.

  10. We have been wanting more live entertainment for awhile at the park. This is a super cool and unique way to do it!

  11. KD’s version has never rotated and was never designed to. In fact, it’s a completely different model. Everything Intamin screwed up with the Gyro Drops, they attempted to fix with Dominions version.

  12. The original Drop Tower planned for KI (to go in Flight Commander's spot in 1997) went to Canada's Wonderland. It is a 2nd generation Intamin Drop.

  13. I think you guys are SEVERELY over analyzing a cartoon map version that is rarely accurate for how that area is going to look.

  14. I dig this article, thanks for sharing! I figure I'd chime in since I feel like I would have a unique perspective on the subject matter. As many of you know, I was part of the staff of this site from its early days - I joined the staff about a month after it launched in 2003 and remained on the staff until Feb 14th, 2017, when I resigned. Afterward, I took a break for a while before becoming a regular poster again. To be frank, though, I was posting less and less for the last year or two that I was on the staff simply because I had no desire to be here. Throughout the last

  15. There are some toxic elements in the enthusiast community but I think that is true of every enthusiast group not just fans of amusement parks. I am also a travel enthusiast, in that community we have an issue with people who somehow think they are better than others for one reason or another, frequently because they have some level of status with the organization and we refer to them using DYKWIA. It stands for Do You Know Who I Am, mostly because when they are arguing with an employee of a hotel or airline they tend to use that phrase. Some coaster enthusiasts have a similar issue, some ar

  16. Considering Volcano's fate, this comment is kind of funny. And before anyone comments, it's not funny they are removing the ride. It's funny that she mentioned them having the ride, which will be defunct, while staying we had a ride which is defunct as well.

  17. Bubba Gumps Shrimp Shack, had good food, an fyi it's named after the character from Forest Gump which is a Viacom/Paramount film, that restaurant was the first in the park to introduce the Coke Freestyle machine. It also brought in lots of money for the slingshot which I worked when Bubba Gumps was there, the people used to gather to watch it under their shelter and feed the fish. The building at one time was home to an injured herron crane, that lived on the roof of the building, the bird had a broken wing, when it swooped down to eat fish and circle the Viking Fury it was funny, people would

  18. I know this is a pretty big topic bump but.... In all my years I have never heard a single bit of proof that there was a direct "no compete" involving B&M and Cedar Point. B&M would be out of their minds to sign such a contract. Why deny yourself the business? It's not like Cedar Fair had a lot of places they could shop around to get the size of hardware they wanted. I think the more likely culprit is this: Reptar Son of Beast Italian Job Top Gun These are the coasters that Kings Island built during the Paramount era. Are any of these projects that
