  1. The only reason I am bringing this up is because KI has been making a lot of small changes to the park and the parks 50th is coming up. I didn’t just jump to conclusions just because of old ride merch being sold . I’m still convinced that nothing is going to happen as far as racer is concerned but KI has a history of making teasers. The probability is never Zero Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Orion IS The simulator. These exact words were used in the Orion announcement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I’m cool with seatbelts but I wish that they were used as a way to keep the restraint down rather than keeping our bodies down. Like I love how for example on Banshee the seatbelt is a fail safe method to keep the restraint down and it really doesn’t affect the rider at all. As opposed to diamond back in Orion where you have to physically have a seatbelt buckled and assuming a restraint opened you would be relying on the seatbelt to hold you in . Idk if this makes any sense at all Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This is exactly why I feel like it’s not going to go backwards! That being said though they have been giving a lot of love to racer recently with the retracking and the parks 50th is coming and this would be an easy crowd pleaser… my heart says Yes but my brain says no .

  5. https://www.kingsislandgear.com/collections/new-apparel/products/racer-tee Here is the link to the shirts and in the Facebook post KI mentions "Whoops! Our printer got this one "Backwards!" This version of the soft style Gildan tee will be available for a limited time only. Free Shipping offer applies to this item only. " This seems like oddly specific use of word backwards and the fact its being sold as official merch makes me believe this is a subtle tease for a backwards racer side once again. I mean the GP absolutely loved when it went backwards and i still hear people talking about how much they miss it. Including enthusiasts. So what do you guys think about it?
  6. I was low key thinking the same thing haha . I would be truly shocked if that name was used ever again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It be cool if they got one of those Mondial rides that look like airplanes and spin around even upside down…. But maybe give it like a retro name like flight commander as a way to celebrate the parks history Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. i mean a flat ride could be announced during the off season and be built before spring right?
  9. I’m not sure if anyone’s actually mentioned that these teasers are in the chaos maze Queue from what I could tell. I didn’t actually go inside of the line for chaos but I did check it out after I got off of Orion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I totally agree but what I think is even more unlikely is them teasing a ride that’s supposedly supposed to be opening next year … in October of this year . I mean certainly anything is possible but that’s just my take. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah I’m totally clueless. There’s just no way that this is a coaster and I don’t even think either flat right is it either. If I had to take a guess I would say maybe a new haunt attraction next year. Themed to Orion to some degree ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Have to imagine they could remove and replace the tunnel if needed . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was literally thinking the exact same thing . I am totally blown away by how much it improved racer . I would be amazed if beast got a complete retracked and the rest of racer tracked as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The only thing I can think of is KI renaming Woodstock express back to beastie. I’ve been wanting that forever . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’ve looked and tried to figure out what you are referring to being out of place but I can’t figure it out for the life of me. Seems normal to me at least Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Honestly I’d love for the tower to get a different color all together . I think straight white would be really cool but if I had to guess they will just paint it blue like it always has been. Seems to iconic to change Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Here is to hoping the other half of Orion is in the shed! all joking aside i am excited but not super impressed initially with the layout but it looks solid none the less.
  18. This thread is ridiculous. Im excited for the announcement tomorrow, i work right next door at GWL and i cant wait to get off work , ride some rides and enjoy the announcement. i know ive been very critical of the coaster but im still excited none the less. its going to be a long off season!
  19. as a former op for WindSeeker i can confirm you dont ever reach that 301ft height. guests are right about the 260ft mark with the gondolas moving
  20. honestly i hope this is the color scheme. its just looks really good. well done!
  21. Are we getting a POV soon?
  22. to me it seems like he is kinda locally famous for being a part of Kings Islands history but he seems like is just an enthusiast like us. i take everything he says when it comes to predictions with a grain of salt. but i loved seeing him in a KI documentary i saw on youtube. he seems like a really nice guy
  23. thank you for saying this. im so sick of people thinking we cant be critical of this coaster. im a paying customer ( and i pay way more than the average pass holder) and im disappointed so far by this layout. i dont owe KI anything and KI isnt building this out of the goodness of their hearts. that being said i am still excited for it but very cautiously optimistic
  24. well crap. i guess this is our giga. all i can hope for is that B&M really steps it up but i dont believe they are willing
  25. thats exactly why we are being critical of the layout. because we likely will not get anything like it ever again,
