    How was your 2018 season?

    This was an incredible season for me. I've made many new friends, visited many new parks, ridden many new rollercoasters, and made many new opinions. Started off the year riding Steel Vengeance at the Frontiertown Hoedown. Rode on the first train with new seats of Diamondback in the season. Went to Carowinds, kings dominion, six flags great america, six flags great adventure, six flags new england, dorney park, six flags over georgia, and kentucky kingdom. T3 was my 130th credit. I've ridden Diamondback around 500 times this season with the help of the season fastlane plus plan. I got a total of 78 visits, and my little brother hit 100 visits at KI on new years eve, which was also his 9th birthday. We drove to a lot of parks this year, and I'm planning to go to around 13 more this year, and I'm planning to hit 210 credits by the end of this year. My top 10: 1. Steel vengeance 2. Fury 325 3. Maverick 4. i305 5. Millenium force 6. el toro 7. ttd 8. Diamondback 9. Lightning run 10. storm chaser

    Single rider line.

    I know people hate my opinion, but I'm gonna say it anyways. They should've just kept fastlane. I know it's an extra charge, and some people will cry about it being too extra. But, it's an extra buck for KI, and when Mystic Timbers get longer lines then normal season in winterfest, it seems pretty logical to me. And myself and others can get the most out of my FLP season passes. I never really seen the reasoning for changing the line itself, as it had no issues as it was in the normal season, but, you can never have everything perfect ig.

    Just for fun: FINAL 2019 announcement predictions

    Dang. I got the whole thing on video. Some might have seen me, I was the guy in the fury 325 shirt and the red and black iPhone with a tripod in hand by the left side of the stage. I was really hoping that they would actually do something along the lines of a new coaster. But of course that’s not what we got. They mentioned all the new amenities from buying a gold pass this year, mainly because of the lower attendance. But honestly antique cars won’t really attract anything. Nobody will travel far just for a ride you can find at tons of other parks. People want rollercoasters, and if ki doesn’t get them, the attendance will continue to drop.

    Banshee gift shop arcade games?

    A while back I was getting m daily does of adrenaline in the morning on Banshee, and noticed something very strange about it. All the gifts in the gift shop below the station were gone and there were a couple arcade games! I thought tha maybe they were getting new merch and they just wanted another way to earn a quick buck whilst waiting for the new merch to arrive. But, to my surprise, the next couple days later they added more! I guess coaster connection is true place to go for Banshee merch. But why? It was fine in my opinion and it was nice to get a little cup there or even a poncho when getting off the coaster when it rains. Anyone have any ideas why they changed it?

    Which coaster gets the RMC axe?

    Sorry not sure if this is a dp but if it is my bad. But anyways I’m not quite sure what in the world they could do with an existing steelcoaster. With something like a woodie it would be much easier to make better becuase of how easy it is to edit a support. Just cut it and plop some galvanized steel on top. With a pre-existing steel coaster, they supports would be harder to modify. An arrow coaster has more supports to be adjusted so I guess Vortex would be a good coaster, but what could they really do with it? The currently existing support system wouldn’t be ideal for hi g force maneuvers new supports would. They might as well build a ground up trex. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Which coaster gets the RMC axe?

    I know some people hate RMC for “destroying” old woodies and changing the layout to include inversions and bank turns, but lots more like them. I, having ridden 7, have fallen in love with these amazing coasters and believe that ki *NEEDS* one of them. The question remains: which one shall receive the axe of rejuvenation? Personally, I think that The Beast should be RMC’d, but it’s ok for the moment so I’m assuming The Racer will probably be the first becuase it’s nearing its 50th birthday and what better present then becoming the best ride in the park?

    So, who bought the 499$ passes.

    I mean, I goto King’s island almost literally every single day during summer, and every weekend during the school season, so it would very worth it for me (though I never got one.) sort of like the food passes, we used those every day and they practically lost money to us thru it.

    I heard from many a gp that Vortex was unstable in its footers, and I’m pretty sure that’s not true, or is it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
