    Not to derail too much but here's a juicy bit rarely discussed from the book. Kings Island was Dick's "white whale"

    Not only that, they're also a bit of a xenophobe! Also, and probably less important, they don't know the difference between "then" and "than."

    A day I never hoped would come. Deep in the back of my mind, I would always know this could and would happen, but it was always easy to push it off as "That's still years away." It's no longer years away. I'm going to miss Vortex. More than I ever thought I would. They can replace it with something new and that will take away some of the sting of the closure. The problem is, to me, that whatever they replace it with, it just won't be Vortex. I can't have it back. No second chances, no more re-rides. Others like it remain, but they will not be the same.

    That last sentence is why you see B&M coasters for 3 out of the last 4 rides at Kings Island.

    I really hope they do a Vortex memorial site like they did with Son of Beast.

    Adding to this: That camera appears to be sitting in/on a milk crate held down by bricks. You can see it while you’re on Diamondback.

    Wasn't the construction cam for MT still in the same place for MT? If so obviously they arent gonna move it, they cant ! Where are they gonna put it, on a tree? With orion i definitely see them moving the cam along with the construction.

    for fury 325 they moved the camera along with the construction so yes they most likely will move it

    Anyone else love gift shops? I was hoping we can discuss or post good stuff from the park. I'd also love if anyone can point me to Smurf ice cream gifts. So far I've found two things at KI: a gray t-shirt in the Emporium that says "Blue ice cream makes me happy" in dark gray text but doesn't have blue or ice cream on it (!), and a pin in the Emporium that's pretty nice and has a blue Smurf cone. I think I'm going to go back for the pin. Who knows what I'll do with a pin but I want it! I also saw a brown bear in the Emporium with the classic KI logo that's adorable. If my kid was into stuffed animals I'd buy it in a second. Any other neat things you've found?

    Am I the only one who misses how much trees and wilderness used to be around the train?

    In regards to your first question, Monster was removed after 1980 and was shipped to Canada's Wonderland. We got a new Monster for 1982. The last dip on The Racer was removed because executives wanted to increase the height clearance on that path with it being opened up to guest foot traffic.
