  1. I just realized how awesome it was to be a park fan around here in the late 90s/early 2000s. Coaster-wise, you had KI with Flight of Fear in 96, Action Zone in 99, SOB in 2000.

  6. We live out of state, so I can't speak to what was going on in the local KI community. But I remember when we heard about it, we were pretty excited. It was a "sequel" to the park's biggest, baddest and most famous roller coaster. I was still in my teens, so I was all about wanting to try the biggest and most extreme thing. And it fit in with the Paramount mindset of making every ride an event. I waited for hours to ride it the year it opened and I remember looking at the giant structure hulking over the Action Zone midway thinking "that seems like a lot." The actual experience was mixed
