  1. Personally I have to say I wouldn't at all be happy with them removing rides in order to build a bigger concert venue. I'd be much happier seeing them just pull timberwolf out and build a new ride back there, but that's just me I'm sure some of you would like the bigger venue.
  2. Oh wow I had completely forgotten about this somehow lol! I definitely do see how some of this is a bit of a bummer, but like I said above, I really do think this is likely just for this season. It does seem to me that they could have kept this a bit shorter though, not sure what the point is of running it every night the entire season. It's kind of hard to get upset right now though because last season was really more or less a bust and I just really can't wait for saturday lol.
  3. I mostly agree with you. My only problem with this is they did a lot of really nice theming work on area 72 that this is going to distract from a bit, and I think that's kind of shame considering a lot of people who would normally go to Kings Island probably didn't go last year when it was new. That being said though, I'm not sure why this is so upsetting to some here. It's really not that big of a deal and I'd be surprised if its not just a temporary event for this season.
  4. Hey all. Missed ya! I just found out about this through the tweet and I think it's a super cool idea. I was surprised to see that it's going all season long though.
  5. Agreed. We would also probably have some idea what was coming in 2021 by now if we were getting something, right?
  6. This is because they've started a new video series and recently completed one on The Bat.
  7. I mean if what were talking about here is removing a coaster at KI and replacing it with a Ferris Wheel, I'd be 100% against that no matter what coaster at the park it is. What an awful trade.
  8. Thank you. I couldn't agree with this more. It's cheasy and terrible. Why did they change this? Is it some kind of licensing thing? Was waaaaaay better before.
  9. @IndyGuy4KI Are the photos on the first page of this thread yours? If so, may I use one or two of them in a video? Credited to you obviously.
  10. Thank you! That's a shame about the numbers not being released. I hadn't seen this page before, awesome resource!
  11. Well if we could just have anything I'd love to see something like Accelerator or TTD. I really like how accelerator has more to the layout than the top hat so I'd almost just prefer something exactly like that.
  12. Resurrecting this thread as I'm looking for up to date numbers as well and I'm hoping someone knows where I can find them. Specifically I was hoping to find ridership numbers for Invertigo if anyone knows where I might be able to find that I'd really appreciate it.
  13. So whats your take on this then? Why would they remove the road? What possibilities do we see here?
  14. A lot of people are expressing doubt about CF doing anything significant here and I definitely tend to agree, but the one thing that has me wondering is the idea of the entrance plaza. Timing doesn't seem great but at the same time, is it really all that crazy to think they'd want to have this done ahead of the 2022 season? (if they have interest in doing it at all that is.)
  15. I'm really not sure why everyone is so convinced that because we have BLSC and FoF they wouldn't build another launch coaster at KI. Kind of reminds me of when people said Orion was going to be too much like Diamondback. I could easily see a mack multi-launch taking the place of Vortex. I mean, there's a lot of other stuff that could go there too, but I don't think we can just totally discount the idea of something like Copperhead Strike going there. Personally I'd like to see them do something like Time Traveler, especially in that spot. It's such a good spot for someone to stop and have a drink or something to eat and watch a coaster, or take pictures.
  16. According to who? Just because people talk about how they think Invertigo will be removed every single year doesn't mean it's on the chopping block.
  17. wow still? I wonder if they'll ever open up today.
  18. @Hawaiian Coasters 325 Honestly man if the media is interested they already know. The whole thing that prompted me to come check the forums today was all the people I saw on Twitter freaking out.
  19. That definitely supports the power theory.
  20. Oh man I'm sorry...I'd be so upset if I drove 2 hours to get there and it just happened to be a day like this...I hope things open up so it'll end up being worth it.
  21. Any indication of what the problem is? comment 2 above yours suggests there could be power issues, but according to people at the park they've seen the rides cycling they just aren't letting people on.
  22. Hey man it's been a while! Haven't been on here in a good bit, good to see familiar faces! I don't know what the issue is specifically but I'm hearing that Diamondback, Orion, Mystic Timbers, and The Beast are all down, so there's something going on.
