  1. Thought I would come up from under my rock to give my opinion on this news. I don't think this will be terrible. The fact that Cedar Fair has the most ownership and power in this merger is enough for me to be satisfied. I'm honestly just glad that Kings Island won't turn into Six Flags Kings Island.
  2. This brings back memories [emoji23] I could definitely see the tram as a new addition to Area 72. Idk what the theme would be though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Obviously not that! It’s an RMC Adventure Express lol But seriously though, I feel like their putting way too much teasing into this just for some more theming on Adventure Express. I guess it’s just the speculator in me lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Am I the only one that thinks there is more being teased here than just Adventure Express? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I may do a speculation vid on this if we see anything suspicious. I’m hoping 2024 is a big year for KI but I don’t think it’s that realistic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Bavarian Beetle has some more deep history to it than just the existence of it. It’s more like why it closed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Didn’t they do the same thing with John Allen for Racer and it actually worked? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I think that RMC is straying away from curved drops. They've mentioned many times that the best option for lift structures is the steel lifts on rides like Zadra and Iron Gwazi. I have a feeling that almost every conversion will have these from now on. Also, notice the first element after the drop and it will make much more sense. The first inversion is what was the lift and drop.
  9. Where’s CP’s operating strata coaster? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Welp, it's official. Hersheypark's lineup is on par with Cedar Point.
  11. I think another great choice would actually be a Chance Rides Hyper GTX. We are seeing this year that they can feature traditional inversions, and the track style is similar to Vortex’s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. In all seriousness, a Mack extreme spinner would be perfect in the lineup. KI needs a spinning coaster (that’s isn’t surf dog XD) Other ones I could see are an RMC Raptor or hyper hybrid and I could also see them maybe going the CP route and getting a Zamperla twister. This wouldn’t be Vortex’s replacement, but more of a classic family ride to go in the Coney Mall area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Nonononono guys, we need an rmc hyper hybrid with stand up trains. Problem solved, Cedar Fair, hire me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This is a pretty good speculation and it would be a ton of sense with replacing King Cobra, but only when it comes to the standup perspective. The problem I have with this theory is that the surf coaster, while you may be standing, is not intended to be focused on a standing motion, but more on a surfing, hence the slight crouching and the seat movement. If I were KI, I would team up with S&S. Not only do they have the air launches, but they also own Vekoma, which would be a much better choice for replacing Vortex. I still could totally see a surf going to KI, but I don’t think it would be smart to build one for King Cobra nostalgia, and I also think that there are much better options when it comes to replacing Vortex. You can tell I’ve been thinking on this ever since the announcement XD Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Nice to see that KI is focusing more on improving the park than expanding it. I'm excited to see how this place will look!
  16. I doubt this will be a coaster (although something could come from CGA if we all dream) but I could see a new flat ride or maybe a new seasonal event being announced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Guys, you're all missing the obvious plan here. They are building 2 dueling hyper Zamperla Volares.
  18. This is more of an “I hope” and not a “this could happen”, but I would love to see an inverting GCI full Titan track coaster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. So I finally got to visit Stricker’s Grove for the first time on Labor Day. I only rode three rides but I marathoned two of them. The train isn’t worth mentioning, although it was a cool setup and had a nice setting. Teddy Bear x3 - it’s a perfect wooden coaster for the little kids. It also has a few pops of floater in the front car. Tornado x4 - this does not get talked about enough. First of all, it’s smoother than it looks. It has two of the most insane ejector moments anywhere. Did I mention it has buzz bars? It’s fun in the front but very intense in the back. The park itself blew me away. It’s very charming and has a vintage feel to it that you can’t get anywhere. It has free drinks with admission and also has free minigolf, for only $18 per ticket. I could not recommend this place enough and I would get there as soon as possible, because word was going around with the staff that the biggest shareholder is selling his share. This could either mean nothing or something big. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I wish. I would kill to get one of these back at KI. They’re really intense. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Wow, I forgot about this post I made a little while back and I just looked at it. I don’t think I have ever cringed harder in my life XD Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Wow, this is awful. I hope everyone is ok and recovers well! But on a side note, this could be the final nail in the coffin for not only El Toro but for Six Flags as a whole. With all the trouble they are dealing with currently, this might just multiply it by 10. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. How soon will they incorporate more extreme layouts into their Titan track?
  24. The color scheme is almost more of a futuristic military color, which does allude to the being a test driver on a ship to the Orion constellation, but I still think that a purple and black color scheme would look awesome. It would be totally different from any other giga color scheme out there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
