  1. Very interesting concept here, I do not track anything at all. I am however disappointed in the low number of Banshee rides you have taken.
  2. To all those complaining it might be as big as you want please don’t ride it, so I don’t have to wait in a line. Thanks. Thank you to whoever went and got the prints this is an exciting time!
  3. I just hope they remember us bigger folk.
  4. Just rode the Diamondback three times. No problems no issues, sat higher in my seat.
  5. It curious to see the current clearing footprint so close to The Beast, but I’m going to put my understanding of this to the engineers, and Cedar Fair knowing exactly what needs to be done to make a world class ride.
  6. It was exactly how I sat. I sat really low causing the the restraints to hit me farther up my thighs. Usually I sit really tall, and it’s lower. I laughed it off, and will ride it again next time.
  7. Tonight after the rainstorms the the eldest daughter and I went to Kings Island. We rode The Beast twice, and then turned our attention to the Diamondback. After enjoying three rides, we decided to go for a fourth ride on the Diamondback. Being a 6’3” 250 lbs individual I am able to ride all the rides at KI. This time however I did not sit in my seat right, and didn’t push my restraint down correctly. So comes over am employee, he tried multiple times to get me in, and then told me I could go ride The Bat or Vortex as they are more likely to accommodate my size. I told him I had just rode this, and never had a problem, but I’ve never had the walk. So I can put that on my list of Park accomplishments.
  8. The excitement of the new season is here, and anticipation for a great new roller coaster is reaching a fever pitch! Here are things we know 1. Firehawk has been torn down, and the land has been excavated. 2. Large amount of clearing has taken place behind The Racer. 3. Cedar Fair and Kings Island have a contract with B & M. 4. There are large amounts of track being made with MRT written on them. Things we are speculating 1. Where is the track marked MRT going? 2. Is this summer the summer they finally announce a Giga? 3. What are they building deeper in the woods? 4. Will we hype it up to much, and be disappointed? I truly believe in about 4-6 weeks we will begin seeing teasers throughout the park, and by August 1 we will know what is happening. Cedar Fair and Kings Island have been listening to the guest we received new antique cars, and a refurbished Istreet. I doubt we are let down, and will be seeing a record breaking Giga coaster. Cedar Fair loves to break and make new records that is why I think this will be their most impressive Giga coaster yet. I could not find any other park besides Hershey who was getting a large coaster. I will be surprised and disappointed if Kings Island does not receive its Giga.
  9. We ate at the Chicken Shack Friday night. The food was hot and fresh, however took along time, they were very busy. One complaint about the Chicken Shack. The employees were very hard to hear when they called out your number. Be loud!!! Saturday we ate at the Brewhouse very good. I had the BBLT which was great, and my daughter had the KI Salad which was also wonderful. I was envious of her selection. That evening we ate at Panda. Hot and fresh. Good first weekend on the food front!
  10. I'm usually a 2-3 click guy on Mystic, but Saturday only 1. I don't know if it was the layers of clothing I wore, or my off season weight gain program I enjoyed.....
  11. Does anyone have any exciting plans for this summer? The Bansheelover family has purchased Platinum passes for the first time ever, and are taking the show on the road! We have made plans to hit Carowinds, Cedar Point,Michigan's Adventure, and of course Kings Island. We have been to Cedar Point, but never the others. Does anyone have any do's or don't's or any great hotels to stay in? Hope everyone as an "amazing" summer.
  12. As much as I love hearing about the on goings of park, and the blog post was beautifully written, I kind of wish they left this a secret for us to discover on opening day. I have to be honest. I thought 2019 was going to be a non-eventful Kings Island season. I was not thrilled for the antique cars, and have been waiting for the big roller coaster announcement. However as the time has gone by, and the announcements of International Street Renovation, new eateries, and now a Glockenspiel return I am very excited to see everything. I am going to pay closer attention to the details. Hats off to Kings Island management for paying attention to the little details that make Kings Island such a wonderful place for us all.
  13. I am also more excited about the rehab of IS then cars. I actually keep forgetting about the cars.
  14. These pictures you can tell they're just ripping it down, and with they way they are piling it up, off to scrap yard for the Firehawk. However with B & M on board for an unknown project, if they do start grading the land get excited something big is coming. I believe with all the people desperately wanting a Giga, and the newsmedia clamoring around the way they have, Kings Island and Cedar Fair may have been painted into a corner to where they have to go Giga. Anything else would probably be a huge disappointment, and see an attendance drop.
  15. We are very lucky, and I am lucky to have kids who love roller coasters. There have been times they say I know you have to cut the grass or do something, but can we please go ride The Beast one time? I cave we go ride The Beast 2-3 times, and come home.
