  1. That makes sense. I should have put 2 and 2 together...I was starting to wonder if they used the same design for permitting and construction purposes across different parks. It seems like a cost effective way to give parks new installations and probably helps expedite the projects overall. It's cool that the parks put their individual spin on them such as theme and food selection.
  2. By doing a quick property search on the Warren County website: http://www.co.warren.oh.us/property_search/summary.aspx?account_nbr=1202233 you can find some mention of what I assume to be permit fees for a few items under the memos tab. The ones in particular that seems interesting are "Harbor House Foundation", "Harbor House Shell", "Sprinklers-Harbor House". Could this be a similar restaurant to the Harbor House at Carowinds? The only thing that is a bit puzzling is that the name seems better fit for an installation in the water park. Regardless, it sounds like a place that wou

  4. It's been a while since my last post but I figured I would go ahead and jump in. I've kindof been holding out to see if anybody else posted it, but since nobody has to this point I'll go ahead. All you have to do is search the parcel of land on the Warren County Auditors site and you will find quite a bit of info. Under the memos you'll find line items associated with permitting and or fees for the ride. More interesting though is the document under the recorder data that is a construction notice for the project and happens to list all contractors and companies involved. I would say that r
  5. Sorry for the angle, but that's the best I could do from the WWC path
  6. I am currently on the train. They are setting up the podium on the back side of the Crypt Building. I will try to get a picture from the WWC path.
  7. Out of curiosity, has anybody else been to IAPPA? The last time I went was a few years back. I vaguely remember RMC's booth with a car from one of their coaster trains. It seemed like a prototype at the time. If I only knew how much they would be talked about a few years later I probably would have paid a lot more attention! Anyways, just wondering.
  8. ^^^ Ha! Not quite the parking lot. A few stop lights down on Columbia. Close enough to swing by 4 or 5 evenings a week.
  9. I've probably been on Banshee more than any ride this year at KI because it's about the best return on investment as far as time goes haha. It's about 15 minutes for me to go from my couch to sitting on the ride. My wife and I love to head up to KI on week nights for the last few hours or so. For us, Banshee has been the go to. It's typically a walk on type wait on most days because the crew really does a good job of moving people through. I don't have a huge list of Inverts like some of the guys on here, but I've ridden Raptor at CP, Batman at SF St Louis, and one of the Dueling Inverts
  10. I want to go ahead and add my thoughts about the discussion of the classification of the RMC Coasters. It seems that there are many different opinions about what a Wood, Steel, or Hybrid coaster consist of. I guess I consider myself a coaster enthusiast, but I also would say I am a construction enthusiast as well. I definitely love coasters and love the ride experience, but I would say I am equally fascinated with how they are designed, how they are built, and just the overall construction process in general! These things are truly remarkable when you consider everything that goes in to on
  11. Hi guys! Long time follower, first time poster. Just wanted to finally join in on the fun! This is the first season I've had a pass in probably more than a decade! I grew up in the area but I moved away for some time as I started my career. This is my first full year back in Ohio. My wife and I decided to get passes for the heck of it and I can say that it has been a blast! We've been about a dozen times so far this season and have enjoyed every bit of it! Hopping on KIC and following the KI community has been really fun and has added to the excitement for me! Sorry for the long wind
