  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

  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.

  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?

  28. 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.)

  29. Late check-in has always been possible, with ticket/lanyard pick-up moving to Guest Services after the main check-in window closes. With Pre-Check, the materials are shipped to you in advance, so you're good to enter right away. One caveat is that if you're not in the park when it closes for the night, you might not be able to get in for night ERT. Disappointing, but understandable with the long lines it will be likely to draw as a new ride. After the public line clears, there likely wouldn't be enough time for an ERT session. Especially if noise is an issue. Hopefully everyone ca

  32. 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.

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

  35. 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.

  45. 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.

  47. 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.

  48. I don't have a problem with them turning off the camera for the liability concerns mentioned above. And really, I'm 40 years old and have a job and two kids -- I can't be staring at a webcam all day in hopes that I might, at the right minute, see a piece of roller coaster come down. But I do wish KI would see that there might be something to be gained by taking pictures or video of the demolition and posting them somewhere...Instagram...here? Demolition of a ride isn't sexy, especially when there isn't a replacement in the works. But it's the end of a historic ride. I seem to remember CP
