  6. ^I still have my fingers crossed that the park comes up with something to sell...they really don’t have to go all out like they did with the SOB plaque. I would be happy with a small piece of track packaged the same way the SOB bolt came, with just a simple certificate...that way there would be no big commitment on their part and no big overrun cost worries.

  7. All I know is that the minute the park decides to sell off her orange and blue bones, I need to be informed so I may add her alongside my SoB plaque. Also, I would not be surprised if somehow the park gave a nod to the past like they did for SoB when Banshee opened. Can’t rule out the possibilities. I could see a sweet Vortex marker nearby whatever goes in her place. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Yeah, it looks like they've installed the lockout area fencing for the first drop.

  10. Looks like a fenced lock out area to me. Lots of coasters have them in areas where the track gets very close to the ground. I believe Fury does. Diamondback has one too.

  11. Is it just me or does it look like there is a rectangle thing at the bottom of the first drop?

  16. I just hope the quantities aren't super limited again if they do it. I have one of the SOB plaques and I believe it was 1 of 250, but Vortex is way more important to me.

  22. Well Wild Gravity Travels wasn't the only facebook page that messed up earlier today. I don't know If anyone has seen my page before, but I run Cedar Fair Photo Fanpage. Anyway, I made the mistake of posting that Orion was finished too. However, I don't think I'm that well known yet. I only have 500 likes. Hopefully, after reading this post, some of you might look me up.

  25. There was a severe “jolt” at the top of the hill following the large drop. It.was.bad. So they re-banked and re-tracked that portion of the ride.

  26. Remember KI once had helicopter tours over the park as an upcharge attraction. So there was no ban then. Worth noting, the copter pad was located approximately where Firehawk and Orion's ques are (will be) located. Here's some nostalgic photos for you - courtesy of yours truly - that show the construction of the pad, and an overview of area where Orion has been built. Looks a bit different, wouldn't you say?

  27. Since the Off-Season photo contest was not started this year, we wanted to do a month long photo contest in February. We will be using most of the rules from the off season contest, but we will NOT tally weekly. Votes will be tallied at the end of the month. It will start on Saturday, Feb. 1st, and the thread will auto unlock at that time. Since there are 5 Saturdays in February you can submit up to 5 photos. Rules: Only 1 picture per post. (If there is more than one, the whole post will be removed.) A max of 5 submissions. (Any additional submissions will be removed.) All photos must be your own. (No pictures from websites or any other sources.) All photos must abide by the Terms of Service and all park rules (for example, any pictures taken as a result of trespassing or any that are taken on rides that prohibit photography/loose articles will not be acceptable and will be removed and possible loss of posting privileges.) To make it more fair, please do not post pictures from areas that only employees can get too. (Tour locations from Coasterstock are fine.) No excessive Photoshop edits, filters, or other effects. Some unique and creative edits on pictures are fine. Please avoid anything that entirely changes the picture or that could be considered "cheating" by attempting to overly edit an image. Pictures can be of anything, as long as they follow the rules above. Amusement park related pictures usually receive the most points, but feel free to post whatever you want. Previous posts here on KIC including other Photo Contest submissions are allowed, although new pictures are highly encouraged. Double posting will be excused in this thread. Only Likes will be counted, not any other emotion. The most important rule: HAVE FUN! The contest will be judged by the members. So if you love a submission, vote for it with a like. You can vote on as many as you want. This will run until February 29th. The winner will get to order a free KIC shirt as their prize along with bragging rights! Good luck! Visit our store here for more KIC gear!

  30. Keep in mind that most of the overseas projects Six Flags was just going to get a licensing fee. They were not the developers/owners of those properties. Likely, they got a better deal to relocate to this location than they were currently paying at their former headquarters, thus saving them money.

  31. I too would like to get a piece of Vortex track with a plaque of some sort. I wonder where I’ll be able to get one though? If they decide to sell some.

  32. Lighthouse point looks nice, but is pretty pricey for camping. Camp Sandusky is pretty good and they have these little cabin things too.

  33. Not just you, if you look at the webcam you can also see it. My best guess is that’s from the wooden planks (or what ever that was) that the large cranes sat on during construction.

  40. It was great following the decoding thread and helping out with the construction Photos, until next time! I will still be sure to get pictures at Claremont steel fabricators if I see any new track for maybe a b&m wing or dive in 2023 or 2024

  44. I'm going to miss Vortex, I literally cried when I heard they were removing it. October was the last and final time I rode it. You can never replace Vortex but you'll never know what the future holds for Kings Island.

  46. Carl Lindner never owned KECO, as the video claims. He owned Kings Island and retained Kings Entertainment Company on a management contract for just that park.
