  1. Lost Backwoods Bayou, Urgent Scare, Rivertown Reaping, Dance of the Macabre, Blackout, and Wolfpack. Traded Field of Screams for Corn-ered Backwoods Bayou and Wolfpack were both bottom of the pack to a lot of people. Urgent Scare and Rivertown Reaping were most likely cut due to the pandemic (Hospital and Plague doctors) Blackout was probably a similar reason due to touching the walls to work your way around the maze. Dance of the Macabre was under the Eiffel Tower which is getting its repaint. All of these moves make since to me, and I can say that we have a rather good and large crew for Slaughterhouse this year. I have always been a quality over quantity guy. Plus with all the food offerings and Tricks or Treats Fallfest, I think we are going to have a great season. I hope to see many of you there. Come visit Slaughterhouse for the freshest cuts of meat in town. We are dying to "meat" you.

  2. They could be very, very uncomfortable... I learned on the TOGO standups, the 'seat' shouldn't have been used to support weight, if you used it as a seat, the ride was going to be like getting a prostate exam from a bicycle seat...

  3. Haunt is back for 2021, at least according to their website as of today. We can start Haunt 2021 discussions in this thread. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/events/haunt

  4. Good point! An RMC raptor at Kings Island would be pretty low capacity. If we’re lucky it would be around Backlot Stunt Coaster’s capacity with its 12 person trains. I also doubt Kings Island would be able to operate a raptor like Six Flags does because of IROC. Anyways, when you consider a B&M 32 passenger train, each train that is dispatched holds 4x the amount of riders that the 8 seat raptor trains hold and almost 3x the riders that the 12 seat raptors hold. Even a 24 passenger train like on Mystic Timbers holds way more. A raptor just doesn’t seem plausible in my opinion. Kings Island really needs something with a higher capacity.

  5. Jersey Devils operations and design is not compatible with Cedar Fairs safety standards. It is impossible for this style of ride to have decent capacity without major design changes or major changes to the chains policies. RailBlazer has a fraction of the capacity of Wonder Woman even though they are the same ride just mirrored.

  6. Eh, they're fine. But can be uncomfortable (especially for men). As a kid, I was terrified to ride King Cobra because I thought standing up and going upside down was probably the most terrifying thing ever. When I rode it...it was fine. Some good airtime, a unique experience, but it lost its novelty pretty quickly and the discomfort took over (the only ride I found more uncomfortable to ride was Firehawk...I always felt like I was five seconds from falling out). I also did Mantis at CP. Again....it was fine. Same discomfort, but the larger ride also seemed to put more pressure on my legs. It was fine if there was no line; no use waiting for it too long if you've already done it once.

  7. The weird thing is bobsled coasters have the least perceived safety to me due to their design. Maybe it's just because it was easy to cause crashes on Roller Coaster Tycoon

  8. Grain and Grill was outstanding. Combine that with their burrito/bowl place on the other side of International Street (complete with indoor air conditioned seating) for the two spots we ate at during our 1.5 day trip this summer (3 meal redemptions).

  9. Having been on Avalanche Run/Disaster Transport at CP and Avalanche at KD, I would not prefer a bobsled ride. First, the capacity is terrible and the ride experience is so-so. I suppose that the ride is good for a family ride but I think a dark ride would be a better addition.
