  1. You know it’s the off season when you have dreams about riding the rides at Kings Island. I have a dream that repeats all the time, but it is a good dream, and it involves the (sadly as it was my favorite ride of all time) now gone Firehawk. In this dream while on the lift hill (with the loud anti rollbacks working), the famous dragon from How to Train Your Dragon Toothless appears, and he rides the ride with me and VortexBFForever (we rode Firehawk and many rides together on my first visit to Kings Island). Somehow, Toothless followed us through every loop, and even followed us into the station for Firehawk. After the ride ops saw Toothless, and knowing nobody else wanted to ride (it was a quiet day at Kings Island in my dream), they let us ride over and over again. In my dream we rode Firehawk a total of four times in a row, all with Toothless, and all while having an amazing time (again Firehawk is my favorite ride of all time but sadly it is gone). I love having that dream! I can’t wait to go back to Kings Island in 2019! Here’s to Kings Island’s off season! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. When I went to Kings Island for the first time, I rode Vortex first, as it has less loops and it would get me ready for the other coasters with loops. I know that sounds silly, however, ask VortexBFForever, as she was terrified for a while of coasters that had a loop. One day (she can tell you the exact day) she rode Vortex, where she has ridden a lot of rides since on Vortex, and she will happily ride with you (she rode with me on my first ride). I really recommend starting with Vortex, as Vortex may be a headbanger at times, but VortexBFForever can help you with that. As for how scary it is, Banshee I would say is less scary, as there is a lot less movement inside the harness of Banshee. Vortex still is a ton of fun, where it does prepare you for Banshee, and I recommend starting with Vortex. Welcome to KIC! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I can’t even begin to thank y’all enough, where I loved all the rides I rode that day, but Firehawk has now become my favorite ride of all time. I know Firehawk is leaving, but thanks to my friend VortexBFForever, I was able to ride Firehawk and many other rides that day! I will be coming back next season, where I plan to come during the middle of the summer, and I can’t wait to see y’all again! When I told my parents what I rode, they were extremely proud of me, as last time I was at Disney world I didn’t want to ride most of the rides. I am happy to come back to Kings Island, where it was a pleasure to come, and I can’t wait to see y’all again! For those who answered many questions for me, I am thankful for y’all, as I was able to know what to do before coming. I normally don’t use the pound sign, but this is my first, and it is: #KIBestDayEver! I can’t even begin to thank all of y’all so much! If anyone wants to know more about what I thought of my amazing day at Kings Island, please either send me a PM. To quote some Roger Waters (former Pink Floyd band member) at the end of the wall tour of 2011-2013 (saw it in 2012): “Thank you!” This quote is from outside the wall from his album Roger Water’s the Wall. Thanks for the amazing time! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. As always, you did a great job with detail and photos on your trip reports! I also always enjoy your posts! Keep up the good work! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I hope that y'all are having a good day. I noticed that there is a poll called the "Vortex Poll". I looked on these forums for a while, and I could not find one on Firehawk, which I have always wanted to hear what people think about Firehawk on these forums. I ask this out of curiosity, where I am not trying to start anything, and I want your thoughts here (good or bad about Firehawk). What are your thoughts on Firehawk? Why is that? If you want people to believe your reason, explain of any experiences you have had on Firehawk, whether the experience was good or bad on Firehawk. So do you have any examples of good or bad things on Firehawk? Finally, would you recommend Firehawk for anyone who has never ridden it before? If someone has never ridden a flying coaster before, would you recommend Firehawk to them? Why or why not? I not only made this poll for y'all to answer, I made it to help others out. Please be honest with your answers, explain your position, and help others out if need to be. I hope that y'all have a great day. Thanks, Daisy1380#.
  6. Congratulations on getting a job on your favorite roller coaster at Kings Island! Sounds like you had an exciting adventure as well! Thanks for the awesome trip report (as you always do with your trip reports). I hope that this season is good as any other! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks you so much y'all for helping me. I thank y'all for telling me the price, telling me that I will need to ride with someone (or a ride manager if needed), and telling me that the ride is good if you have never ridden it before (I have never ridden a slingshot ride). How much does the video cost (without a season pass)? How good is the video (is the video high quality for slingshot)? Thanks again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I hope that all of y'all are having a great day. I know in the post where I introduced myself I said I would be going to Transylvania university in Lexington Kentucky, however, I have dedicated myself to Murray state university in Murray Kentucky. I say this because I won't be as close to Kings Island as Transylvania, however, I am closer than I would be in Nashville. If you remember from my last post, I said I wanted to ride slingshot. I know that slingshot is a pay to ride attraction, however, I can't find a price of slingshot on Kings Islands website. What is the price of slingshot through the day? Does it change? How much for the video? Is the video worth it? I ask all of these questions because I have never ridden a slingshot ride. The only ride that is similar to a slingshot that I have ridden was zero g at beech bend park. I say this for the fact that both leave you in fear for a period of time. I loved riding zero g at beech bend, however, I want an even greater thrill. That leads me to my next question. If you have never ridden a slingshot ride, is it worth it to ride? Again, I am not afraid of slingshot, I just want to know if it is worth it. Thank you so much for responding. I hope that y'all have a great day. Thanks, again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I hope that y'all are having a good evening. There are always rides that you love to ride over and over again. A ride that I love riding over and over again are Maxflight simulators. This is because they are fun. If you have fun doing something, why not do it again? For you people who have been to Kings Island, there is always a ride that you love to ride over and over again, and you never get tired of it. It could be a coaster, a flat ride, or even a water ride that you love so much. The reason I created this topic is because I want to ride certain rides at Kings Island, as they fit my ride taste, and I want to know something from the KIC community. I am about to give y'all the list of rides I want to ride at Kings Island, and from that list, pick your favorite(s), and explain why that ride is your favorite. Note: I have never ridden any of these rides, as I have not been to Kings Island, but the only similar ride I have ridden is a Drop Tower ride at beech bend park in bowling green Kentucky. Here is the list of rides that you need to choose from: Firehawk, Vortex, Banshee, Drop Tower, Slingshot, Xtreme Skyflyer, and Delirium. Based upon this list, which ride would you ride over and over again, and why? The reason could be simple, or you could go into great detail. If you want to choose one coaster from the list, and one flat ride from the list, that is okay as well. Just remember to please explain why you picked that ride(s). If you wish to explain your position (not argue with other users), feel free to do so, but remember to do it in a respectful manor. Also, if you have any pictures or videos of you on the ride you chose, feel free to share them. Don't be embarrassed by showing a photo, you will not be made fun of for it, nor will other members be mean to you about it. I hope that y'all are able to explain your position (bonus points if you bring photos), have a fun time discussing, and have a good day. I hope that y'all have an amazing day.
