  1. It depends on your point of view. If you perceive them that they're upside down, when you believe yourself to be looking at them right side up then yes they're upside down, but if you're upside down, and then they're right side up. It is all perception, and a lesson to learn about how everyone perceives an issue.
  2. Two thoughts on this. 1. Where will all the teenagers eat if Chic Fil A closes? 2. Do they not know this is the closest Chic Fil A to my house, and I order at the Kings Island CFA the same thing I do at an actual restaurant? It also helps that is it on my meal plan. Skyline discussion I love some Skyline, but eating it outside on a 90 degree day does not sound fun.
  3. and if you do a dining plan that will need to be upgraded as well. Drink and picture plans already work at all parks.
  4. I'm only speculating here, but Kings Island does not have a floorless, dive or wing coaster. B&M develops very good models of each of those. Lets start with the wing coaster. Will be a GP pleaser, and are fun. GateKeeper is gentle and forceless, but worth a ride. Thunderbird is a lot of fun with its launch and near miss elements. Although rumor has it Holiday World made B&M sign a no build clause of "x" amount of miles from HW. There has not been built a ground up floorless coaster since Hydra. I have rode Hydra which I thought was a lot of fun, but Rougarou is rough and a headbanger. Although Rougarou was a replacement for Mantis, and is not very well perceived at Cedar Point this may work at KI. KI needs an intense, multiple looping coaster since Vortex and Firehawk were removed. Since it has been multiple years since a ground up floorless has been built maybe B&M has updated the restraints and trains for it to make for a better ride. A dive coaster is a GP pleaser, offers multiple inversions, and gives an intimidating appearance to the skyline. We have seen Cedar Fair purchase two of them, and both are very successful at the parks that have them. It appears Cedar Fair does not care if the parks have similar coasters in their parks. A dive coaster on The Vortex plot could be the largest of its kind. If KI was to get a new coaster I would think a Dive coaster would probably be the way they go. Or B&M is just here help repair the current B&M coasters in the park. Time will only tell.
  5. The new themed areas of Cedar Point, Kings Island, Carowinds, and Knotts Berry Farm for 2023!
  6. Great additions! Kings Island and Cedar Fair have done it again. We saw Cedar Fair save a dying area last year at Kings Dominion with Jungle X-perdition, Cedar Point’s Farmhouse, and Boardwalk, Carowinds massive improvements, and Michigan Adventure’s Camp Snoopy. Now we see them bringing it to Kings Island with a wonderful retheme of Hanks, and the surrounding area. It will bring life to area where most just walkthrough. The flat rides were desperately needed, and will be loved for generations. It will also buy time, and deter the general public of the vacant land which Vortex sat. KI and CF continue rehabbing much needed areas. Started with Coney BBQ, Miami Brewhouse, and International Street. Now we have Area 72 and Adventure Port. The future is bright, and believe me for us huge coaster fanatics The Vortex plot coaster is coming soon, and will be amazing, but until then we are going on an Adventure!
  7. I got four guesses. 1. A flat ride package. 2. Planet Snoopy makeover to Camp Snoopy. 3. Waterpark addition 4. Psycho Mouse from CGA to Kings Island.
  8. It is obviously an acronym for Mack is Opening Here a Roller Coaster.
  9. Well the year did not go as planned. My daughter's soccer career went from a fall to spring activity to year round 3-5 days a week. We only made it to Carowinds, Kings Island, and Cedar Point. Maybe next year I will venture out by myself. For the first time in 7 years no new credits for me.
  10. It is interesting to read everyone's perspective of Haunt. I understand that is it a monumental task to put on, with a limited budget due to so much focus on Winterfest. With Haunt brings a different more aggressive feeling crowd. I wonder due to the problems that Haunt brings to the various parks as there was an incident at Carowinds last weekend, and an incident at Kings Dominion this weekend if Cedar Fair is trying to tame down the Haunt. Valleyfair has the Tricks and Treats celebration. https://www.valleyfair.com/events/tricks-and-treats I am willing to bet this is what all the parks will head to in the next few years. The new CEO is on record saying he wants the parks to be more family centric. My thoughts on Haunt. I only have completed Cornered, KillMart and the Scarezones. I thought Corned could be better, the lights of Invertigo flooded the area, and made it bright. I would love to see it return to the fireworks pad, but I do not know if that is possible. The International Street scare actors were phenomenal, and costumes were very well done. They were fun to interact with, and the Ghillie suit guy got me again for like the 3rd consecutive Haunt. I need to be on the look out for him. The sliding guys are my favorite as they scare the daylights out of a lot of people. Pumpkin patch needs to return to its old lane. Although I liked the new props. Coney Maul and clowns I hate it. Why did all the clowns have weapons? I made the bad joke to my wife that they were added security due to the fight that happened there last summer. KillMart is fun, but they let too many people in at once. Just one group at a time and then wait a few minutes. I will do two more mazes Friday, and Saturday. As with any regional theme park low expectations yield a fun evening.
  11. Do we want something new every year has passholders, yes? Does Kings Island need it? No. Imagine being Dorney, Michigan's Adventure, WOF, or Vallyefair who get no love at all. I am willing to bet 2024 or 25 will be a huge year for KI. As a new coaster, and hopefully 2-3 flats, and a waterpark improvements are coming. With the large KI passholder group Ki will always be at top of chain to get something. It is also nice not to get things keeps crowds down, and we can enjoy the park for a year without pure insanity.
  12. Dang! There goes my plans for the day. I already had my passport ready, and private jet to take me there all fueled up. Guess I will pay my pilot for his time anyways. Maybe we fly to Oceans of fun instead.
  13. A Pardon our Dust barricade was found today between Coney BBQ, and Monster! Does this mean the beginning of something ?
  14. Interesting. In my opinion Cedar Fair needs to deliver a coaster to WOF, Dorney, MA,and Valleyfair this year. I find it bs actually they do not take care of these parks in the rides dept as well. We upgraded to platinum a few years back because of my daughters wanting to visit other parks, and experience different rides because of how excited they were riding Mystic Timbers. I wonder if other families would do the same.
  15. There was a four year period between Fury 325 and Copperhead Strike at Carowinds. I would think that would be a similar time table for Kings Island. I really would like to see an upgrade to Camp Snoopy, and a flat ride package of 2-3 rides of various extremes.
  16. Correction to my original post. We will be visiting Six Flags Great America, not Great Adventure.
  17. As coaster season is coming ever so closer, which parks do you have plans to visit this year? Us here at Bansheelover are planning on visiting Carowinds next weekend, Cedar Point at least 3 times, Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags Darien Lake, Six Flags over Georgia, Kentucky Kingdom, and maybe sneak in Michigan's Adventure. Of course I'd like to break my personal record of 72 Kings Island visits, maybe shoot for 80 as my goal. We will see. Have fun, ride anything that scares you, live to tell the tale!
  18. This is great news. The funny thing is I had a dream early last week before this news broke that I was on the train, and it had been refurbished. Cannot wait until opening day.

  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Can confirm! Also I Street was lit up. I wonder if the Eiffel Tower will be ready to be the Eiffel Tree?
  24. 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.
