  1. Sad indeed as this was one coaster I could always ride on crowded days and not waiting forever. It was a fun ride but we got more years out of it than expected. Excited for the future.
  2. It's not loud but it's close to the houses.
  3. Is this the same area that a footing was rumored be sliding down a hill? Diamondback has some bad vibrations too. Wonder if they are making adjustments to the track?
  4. The apex of the lift is still there. Not for long though.
  5. I get it but sometimes starting at the bottom is not an option.
  6. Be very interesting to see what they use that area for this year. I wonder if they are planning on digging up all the old footings.
  7. I would assume it just cost more to build a coaster. Labor is expensive plus Im sure the design process it a lot more expensive.
  8. I believe I was an interview with a Kings Island official and he estimated it would cost about $30million to rebuild today.
  9. I honestly think for the forseeable future that Kings Island is going to be in a remove/replace mode. We don't want to over expand the park for this area.
  10. This is a hard one. I think a GCI could be built for under the budget.
  11. We have Sprint mostly due to cost but it works well for us. We never have a issue.
  12. I am not sure how expensive Mack's are but I consider B&M the Rolls Royce of coasters price wise. The park has no problem affording them. I vote a multi-launch or a traditional looking coaster in Vortex old spot with 5 inversions and packed with quick transitions and airtime. I think a dive machine could work well in Flight Decks spot or Invertago/ Congo Falls area.
  13. With some of the park food I have seen and even consumed this would probably make my top 10.
  14. Can you PM what neighbor that is? Are they still building houses there?
  15. Maintenance low ridership, costly to operate
  16. I am not sure of the reliability of the T-Rex models but I dont think there is much about them that is different from a normal coaster other than being able to complete tighter turns.
  17. Brought to you by Idaho potatoes! Lol
  18. Just curious as to how the track has more stress on it. The track would receive the same stress on it I would think unless the trains weighed more.
  19. I have raised $100 so far. My wife is "surprizing" me with it as birthday gift as my birthday is right around.
  20. If and when The Bat goes I think a launched wing rider or a Mack multi-launch coaster would be a prefect fit for that area.
  21. I would like to see something similar height and something visually impressive. I think a B&M dive machine would do the trick however I am not sure that it would fill that space.
  22. Do all of those participants have the required $150?
  23. I know it's probably impossible but I have an old John Deer engine in the garage and I would love to turn one of the old cars into a go-kart for my son. I have had dreams about it since I learned of the removal.
  24. Thank you for all you do for the park and enthusiasts community.
