Closed today? That means I was part of the last group to ride it. I was at Kings Island last night and headed to Firehawk sometime after 10. Upon arrival it was closed but testing was being conducted. After a few minutes we got to go on. 2 - 3 trains went before me.
We boarded the red train and had an amazing night ride on Firehawk. However, the train never made it into the station. We were stopped on the final break run entering the station. The yellow train got stuck at the beginning of the lift hill. After waiting 30 or so minutes we all had to be manually evacuated from the ride.
Bittersweet knowing that the first time I’ve ever been stuck on a rollercoaster (Kings Island is my home park, been going since early 90s) was on the last ride ever for Firehawk and was manually evacuated. If you think about it, Firehawks last ride was never completed.
