  1. It really is so great to see the organ being restored. The speaker play over really just isn't the same as the real thing. So glad!
  2. So it's true... *sniffs* Racer is getting re-painted.... *sheds a tear of joy* In all seriousness, I am VERY happy about this news. The Racer definitely needed it and considering its being re-painted for the 50th, its even better.
  3. My question is how does the park plan on dealing with kids/teenagers who have been dropped off at the park with say $50 cash on them and they don't have a credit card? If everything is cashless, then how are they supposed to purchase food, drinks, etc. since they don't have a card?
  4. If you look closely, you can see the new track on Racer!
  5. Ok it is INDISPUTABLE that, clearly, the best part of this ride is that the track just straight up ENDS. You don't go back to the station. The ride ends before its over!
  6. ThE Eiffel Tower NeEdS tO bE dEmOlIsHeD aNd RePlAcEd WiTh A sTrAtA cOaStEr.
  7. My top 5: 1. Racer 2.Adventure Express 3.Racer 4.Scrambler 5.Viking Fury 6. Did I mention Racer? Anyways, Racer.
  8. Last off season, they were filling the back half of the tracks with sand to cut down on noise. Wonder if they could be modifying that in some way...
  9. I just love how I can see a partially demolished SoB in the lower right hand corner.... Also, whats with axing The Bat? Did I miss something lol?
  10. If you look on the right side slightly below the center line, you can see one of Blue Racer's cars
  11. Hopefully nothing essential with KI gets iced because of the pandemic...
  12. Just one question: Do I have to answer in the form of a question?
  13. If the cables fail on the Eiffel Tower, that could be considered a "Drop Tower". On a serious note, I personally don't see a reason to have a third drop ride. There's Kite Eating Tree for the kids and Drop Tower for the thrill seekers. I don't really see a common ground for "family-thrill seeker drop ride" so to say.
  14. Is there a limit for how many times I can smash the AZ button?
  15. I'm genuinely curious to see what this would look like...
  16. I still stand by my previous statement. Lemme just put a fake marker in Planet Snoopy real quick and.... Planet Snoopy STRATA COASTER
  17. I think this is a really good question. If anything, I don't think this question is asked enough. Parks (I imagine) draw more GP than enthusiasts, so whatever the park adds to Vortex's plot will (probably) basically be something the enthusiasts want along with something that will attract the GP. I could be wrong, but this is my prediction. On a side note, the more I think about this, with regards to Vortex's plot, I am beginning to think of it as "dead space" (so to say). I can easily see why the park decided it was time to take out Vortex, but the issue to me is what could you put in there that blends with the park and the surrounding area? I honestly believe that a B&M, an Intamin, or whatever other kinds of big coasters are out there just wouldn't work in Vortex's plot. Whatever the park puts in place of Vortex HAS to make up for the photogenic loss of Vortex AND it also should tie into the Coney Mall area as well. Period. At this point, I honestly have no idea what to put there. But I would not like to see a dive coaster put there (Just no. Save that for when they remove Invertigo).
  18. Those are some amazing pictures @Gordon Bombay! Especially with 35mm...very nice.
  19. We need a new water ride. Boom. Said it. On a serious note, water rides are worth the investment if they work well with the park they are in. An amusement park farther north probably won't have water rides to the same degree as parks farther south. If anything, parks more north probably don't have any water rides (if they do, I would imagine they are a small number) whereas parks farther south probably have more than one or two water rides. Climate (probably) plays a big role in water rides because parks farther north have a limited time span for operation, especially with water rides. Look right here at Kings Island. I personally wouldn't consider our park to be a "northern" park, but look at some of our water rides. WWC is only open from about Memorial Day to sometime in August or September. RFYLCB closes (if I remeber) for the season in September.And tbh idk about Congo Falls. Imagine if you sent these three rides south or north. If you sent them south, they would most likely have a longer operating period. Send them more north and its more limited.
  20. Just what my small yard needs...a monorail....
