    Maybe cause its Kings Island central?

    Nope, I'm talking about most people in general. That's the first negative review I've seen anywhere.

    I know I'm going to RIPPED up on here for saying, but this is my opinion.

    Nothing special...

    FURY 325 destroys Orion.

    Nothing on Orion other than the drop was memorable.   Didn't even feel a desire to immediately ride again.  The line all the way back to Vortex lot probably had something to do with that.

    I'll DEFINITELY ride it every time I come to KI, but I think Diamondback and Behemoth are actually better cause the ride is MUCH longer.  

    Giga wise, Leviathan and Intimidator 305 are also slightly better than Orion.  And like I said, you GOTTA go ride FURY 325, THEN compare! 

    I don't want to be a "hater".  I WANTED it to be amazing.  After all that time and money and planning.  It's a FINE ride.  Great theming.  Other coasters are just a LOT better.

     

    Huh, this is the first semi-negative review that I've seen. Most people love it.

  3. I saw a thread about that stupid American Dream mall in NYC earlier on Reddit, and it got me thinking. If the place does go out of business (which, let's be honest, it probably will) what if Cedar Fair snatched up the Takabisha clone and the Gestlauer spinning coaster and put them here? I know it's not the best option, but it's still two coasters (including the worlds steepest coaster) and they would be a hell of a lot cheaper than anything else they can build right now.

     

    EDIT: FAIR, NOT POINT.

    I would rather wait 5+ years for a new original layout than get a clone of another coaster tbh.

    I really don't get this mindset. If the coaster is good and adds value to the park, who cares if it's a clone? Most visitors to the park won't know the difference. Eventually an original coaster will come along.

    Of course, that's assuming that they won't only add clones like Six Flags does. But it's a good temporary solution for a quick attendance boost post-pandemic.

  5. The Copperhead Strike on the last post got me thinking. What if Cedar Fair decides to start buying clones instead of original layouts for the time being? It would help cut down on R&D costs.

    For example, cloning over Hangtime from Knotts Berry Farm wouldn't be a bad idea. Neither would Copperhead Strike.


  6. My take on a mini B&M dive coaster for The Vortex plot (excuse the crude drawing). 160 feet tall, 180 foot drop at 90 degrees into a tunnel, five inversions which would be most on a dive coaster (immelmann, vertical loop, cutback, two zero-g rolls), and two theming structures. Named Hawkeye.

    Pink - Lift Hill

    Red - Drop and tunnel

    Blue - Inversions

    Green - Theming structures

    Purple - Brake run

    Orange - Track

  7. How would y'all feel about a mini B&M dive coaster similar to Emperor, Valkyria, Baron 1898, and Oblivion The Black Hole? I really don't see the next coaster going over 200 feet (especially with this coronavirus mess), but I do think that B&M will build it. I could see an extensive amount of theming for it, including a drop underneath a path or entryway, and taking the world record for most inversions on a dive coaster with five or six.

  8. I'd be curious to hear other peoples' thoughts on this. The redesign is definitely possible (not do it now-wise, but within-budget-wise) and it looks pretty great, but he makes a good point at the end about how intensity isn't always favored by the GP. Interesting video overall.

    Taken from Reddit. The trains saying goodbye before they go wherever they’re going.

    If we weren't getting Orion next year I'd be so ****ed at this closing. It's going to be a pretty nice view of the woods when this is demolished though, so that's a bright spot.

  10. Anyone riding in the back row going over that drop: YOU HAVE CHOSEN DEATH!

    A couple of questions though. Now that they're done with the drop, will the turnaround go up next? I know the wave turn comes first in the layout, but the turnaround is taller. And are they going to move the webcam so that we can watch the rest of the layout go up?
