    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    If anything there's only signs of Vipers staying around even longer with MM taking the time to update the braking system. Also heard Vortex still gets near a million riders if it doesn't actually reach it. Now you don't ever really know for sure but honestly the more I think about it the more I don't think it's Vortex. Didn't Vortex JUST get new wheels, brake parts, and refurbed footers THIS YEAR? It doesn't make much sense for me to remove it after all that. not to mention the oh so wonderful "new" sign

    Dang it would be weird to not see Firehawk around. However, I can totally understand why they would choose to remove it. I'd still miss it though as it's a pretty fun ride.

    The Mystic Timbers ad with Steel Vengeance also has Arrow Dynamics Co. at the bottom too!
  5. I personally can't seem to find how CCMR isn't a "good" mine train. The helixes are pretty fun, it's a long ride, the drop into the lagoon is pretty cool, not really that rough, and like I said earlier, not every ride has to be thrilling. I'd much rather have them maybe spruce up the area it's in rather than remove it, because to me it's the perfect kind of ride in the area. Heck maybe even theme some sections of ride.
  6. Oh boy here I go. To me, removing Corkscrew is a really, REALLY bad idea. Not only does it look amazing through the midway, but It'd be really hard to replace it with something. It's just so tiny and barely takes up any space. Not to mention, it's literally the only inverting ride at CP that is 48 inches. Not to mention, it's pretty dang small too. It's a pretty good ride to introduce inversions. Remove it, smaller folks can't ride and anyone who's scared of heights/drops are now stuck with Rougarou, Steel Vengeance, Maverick... (And I've personally have never had a bad ride on Corkscrew, just the other day I found it to be a pretty smooth ride. The trains aren't so great though.) I'm also really against removing CCMR. CCMR is a great starter coaster in general. And look at what else is in that same area. Steel Vengeance and Maverick. CCMR imo is a perfect fit for that area to help keep a good balance of family rides. Yeah it's a duller coaster but by no means does that mean you should remove it. Not every coaster needs to be the most thrilling thing on earth. A park such as Cedar Point just isn't a complete park without a classic Mine Train ride. And, try to ignore my username here, the Arrows at CP are to me one of the few things there that truly give CP some character. Not to mention, they all still serve a great purpose, which is being ride an entire family can enjoy. CCMR, Iron Dragon, Gemini, Corkscrew, start removing them and the family aspect of Cedar Point is just lost. And noticing how Cedar Point as started to market to families more, what's the point of marketing towards families if there aren't any family rides? In the end I'd have to go with Rougarou if I had to choose a ride to go. I've given this coaster so many chances to try and redeem itself but each time I get off wishing I rode anything else in the park instead. To me the floorless trains have done zero to improve the ride with the exception of sitting down.

    Which coaster gets the RMC axe?

    Am I the only one who thinks a Vortex redo by RMC would be super ugly and should be done by someone else?
  8. They truly are bringing Steel Phantom back

    I think you're giving too little credit to the GP community, lots of people LOVE The Beast the way it is.

    It's old, it's outdated, but I'd argue those are no reasons to get rid of it. I'd seriously miss the ride, as it's one of my favorites there. And it's still one of the more popular coasters there. Really don't think there's a good reason to demolish it.

    Yes, I know that, I was just wondering what caused it.

    Vortex got stuck in the station today. Anybody know what happened?
  13. It's going to be an Arrow Corkscrew mark my words

    I've always thought about making that section of the park into a Monster themed area. Or something like it. You got Banshee, you got Bat, I'd like to see what would happen if KI kept going in that direction.

    "The Bat is going to be demolished next year. They already took out some of the brakes and track, just look at the ground over there!"
