KIC Local (2/13)



  1. This news or rumor just burns me up for some reason. Although I love Orion, I feel like it was rushed to Kings Island. I believe after some time has moved on that Cedar Fair knew Vortex was done for, and had to hurry and replace Vortex and Firehawk. Thus they moved the alleged Hyper coaster from CGA to KI, and dubbed it a giga. This layout would have fit perfectly in the spot of land that is being used by Orion, and could have gone left where Orion turns around. This just grinds my gears, and I feel like KI was appeased instead of getting what it truly should have received.
  2. I actually hate seeing this just for personal reasons. This was the first antique car ride my kids rode. I took them to Cedar Point for their first visit in 2018. Kings Island did not have them yet, and they thought they were so cool. I think we rode them 4-5 times. As I was riding them, I thought KI really needs these back because the kids love the driving them.
  3. I saw him exiting The Beast this fall. I thought to myself I love roller coasters and Cedar Point, but I'm not going that far.
  4. Can confirm! Also I Street was lit up. I wonder if the Eiffel Tower will be ready to be the Eiffel Tree?
  5. I have the meal plan, and live 10 minutes away. I have visited Kings Island 50 times this season, and ate every time sometimes twice. I venture to say I have had 65+ meals there. My go tos are chicken and salad at Coney BBQ, Pub burger at Brewhouse, Orange chicken at Panda, and the salad at Chicken Shack. I've also enjoyed the French restaurant, and Chic Fil A. This summer I visited Cedar Point 4 times ate 8 times, Dorney once ate twice, and Kings Dominion twice eating four times. I think I got my monies worth.
  6. Don't go to Kings Dominion if you're wondering about black top. They've allowed that parking lot to deteriorate into gravel. Glad a lot of rides are getting TLC. Something about faded paint jobs look bad to me. I like everything looking fresh.
  7. Top Thrill Dragster does not have the technology Orion does. TTD is the most complicated coaster in Ohio.
  8. I have been to the park 83 times since Orion has opened, and it has been only down for short amount of times 3 of those visits. Orion is the most sophisticated roller coaster in Ohio. It has the most technology ever available to run it, and more safety measures then any other coaster. A lot of the "downtime" is that has been experienced it due to computers.
  9. I will ride it once a month, its not my favorite, but I do not despise it. I like to sit in the middle to be able to see other's reactions though.
  10. After riding Grizzly at Kings Dominion it is my new #1 worst roller coaster of all time. Just an awful ride, that is rough with a boring layout.
  11. This past summer we made the trip to Dorney Park in Allentown, PA. The park is an older park, with a lot of older rides. Especially The Whip that had been there since 1920. The park is smaller than your typical Cedar Fair parks, but we had a lot of fun. We rode all the roller coasters. Talon was really underrated, I especially like the helix felt like your legs would touch the ground. The kids favorite was the Mouse Trap, it seemed to run faster than Richochet at Carowinds, and Apple Zapple at Kings Dominion. I thought Hydra was fantastic, and wish I would it of rode it a few more times. I am counting Demon Drop as coaster. I never rode it at Cedar Point, and was surprised by how high it was. Thunderhawk was running one train, and kind of rough. Possessed was fun, but enjoy Wicked Twister more due to the double twisted spikes. In my opinion Steel Force was the star of the show. I thought it would ride more like Magnum XL, but it blew me away. I think we rode it 5-6 times. We also visited the waterpark which is really nice, and compact. They have a ton to do there, and we tried to ride as much as possible, but it was so hot the lines were longer. We also enjoyed their variety of flat rides such as Enterprise, the carousel, and ferris wheel. It is nice to experience those since Kings Island does not have two out of the three. The food was nothing to write home about. Slow service and just basic fair attire. Need a major upgrade there. A few of the employees had never seen Platinum passes, and would show their coworkers which gave me a good chuckle. Overall I enjoyed Dorney if I'm ever in the area again, would go to ride Hyrda, Demon Drop, and Steel Force. It gave me the feeling of going back in time, and it was very nostaglic.
  12. That they do, I would be surprised if it is any kind of ride. More food options would be great. I would love to see a giant swing, like Skyhawk and 2 more flat rides back there. Kings Island has great coasters, but truly lacking on the flat ride side of things.
  13. The signs are in the CHAOS que. I didn't notice them Friday night, but they were there today. I think it has to do with the lab, not a new attraction.
