  1. I love the idea! Especially since CF seems to be going after a bunch of interactive seasonal events.
  2. That's Helix at Liseberg and from what I can see, it really uses the terrain well. I hope that what they eventually put in The Vortex area is well thought out and uses that crazy topography to its advantage.
  3. An idea I came up with for how the station could be in Rivertown over the valley for a Mack multi launch. Source for photo: Kings Island Forever Facebook page
  4. I think it would be better if they gut out the arcade and put the entrance in there and have some switchbacks in there with some nice wild west theming.
  5. Then what would they do with The Vortex land? It can't just be a massive hole forever. I kinda think a FF type attraction, but that would be kinda hard to do with the terrain there.
  6. Where would the station go? I could see them putting the station where Vortex's station was and having the elevated pathway go through the area and the turnstiles being near the station. They could have some elements going over and under that pathway making for some nice photo/video opportunities. One downside would be that the entrance and exit would be fairly fair apart.
  7. The issue I see in that is that the land is not flat there. In fact, that is where the valley is. Now, the solution in that is that they make the pathway a bridge and maybe have the coaster go over and under it (maybe a batwing element). Idk what name or theme would be the best fit for a coaster that doesn't sound too cheesy. Maybe a car like theme like what Lightning Rod has? That would kinda work being right next to KMAA.
  8. Here's an idea I just came up with. A Mack multilaunch coaster using the terrain (more like what Helix and Time Traveler does) and give it a Disco theme. Think about it! The theme could be a disco party gone wild and the station/queue could have disco music playing and maybe a disco ball with lights! At night this ride would come to life with a nice light package and the lights/disco ball in the station maybe even a way to turn the regular station lights into blacklight!
  9. Ressurrecting an old thread: Nice photos of KI! Very neat to see these and realize how much the park has changed since 2009. With the additions of Banshee, Mystic Timbers, and now Orion along with the removal of Vortex, the park has changed so much! Also, kinda neat that they used to use Picnic Grove during Haunt. I'd love to see something like that again in Picnic Grove!
  10. I was at the Jackson County Fair in Indiana where I lived at the time. I did a drum solo for the fair talent show and hung out and rode fair rides. Then after 10, I checked my phone to see what was then #kiproject2017 and found out the name Mystic Timbers and I remember trying to get used to that name since it was very odd to me. Me like many others thought it would be named splintercat.
  11. Ok makes sense. Kinda wish it was like that in Indiana. I used to live near the largest county fair in Indiana (Jackson County) and since I moved back to Cincy, I usually go there to visit during Fair week. It was cancelled due to COVID and for 4H they are doing it virtual. It would've been held this week.
  12. I saw you while working there lol. I think I was working drive so I was in the control panel giving the start spiel and letting people on.
  13. I'm confused. I thought the Butler County Fair got cancelled. Either I am thinking of another fair or they called it back on at the last minute.
  14. Orion isn't doing boarding passes today
  15. Just rode front row and it was outstanding! Loved that wind in the face feeling! It was also my sister's first ever ride on Orion and she loved it!
  16. While working today, I noticed they put social distancing markers in front of the stage to help maintain social distancing for the show.
  17. I'm thinking either he is going to do a statewide mask order or shut down bars.
  18. How would they be able to fill the land up with water? Would a large water fountain do the trick? Idk how it is done.
  19. Just so you know, it might be best to not post that Orion is stuck on the hill since that's when the media will start calling the park.
  20. I hear the park is having power problems. Is this true? My shift starts at 3:45.
  21. So the entrance would be on the left side of Beast? Where would the station go? Would you have to go under The Beast to access the station? Idk if we'll get a single rail unless we get the first Trex which I find unlikely. I think a ground up wooden coaster (topper track) would fit the theme. I like that factory theme idea.
  22. Looking at the land, Idk if the valley is completely round enough to make a lake out of it.
  23. I have a feeling the access passes may be a thing this entire season especially with the hype of Orion and the need for social distancing due to us being in the middle of a pandemic. I think next season if things go back to normal, the access passes will be gone. Cedar Point is doing these on SV, Maverick, and Millennium Force due to the popularity.
