  1. Introducing Dr. Diabolical’s Cliffhanger, the world’s steepest dive coaster! Height: 150 ft. Speed: 60 mph Angle of Descent: 95 degrees Length: 2401 ft long I will edit this post to show the promo when it gets released.
  2. Well yeah that’s what I’m talking about. The very small scale kiddie rides like the carousel might not do much. But anything larger will play a number on him. Makes me think that’s the problem.
  3. Just a quick question, do you happen to have any vision problems? My dad has some minor vision problems but its to the point where it makes him sick on any sort of ride, even the Woodstock flyers. So does the sickness start with dizziness or vertigo or anything vision related?
  4. Yeah I looked on the website after all of this lol.
  5. Can anyone confirm that you can’t buy them at the gate?
  6. So I haven’t heard anything about the bring a friend day deal at all at KI. Is it happening this year?
  7. That’s awesome. Hopefully this thing comes to life. Also, discovery kingdom being relocated? Like to a different location?
  8. I will say this has nothing to do with the manufacturer. It is the carnival runners fault. All their fault. They probably didn’t take the proper precautions to keep the ride running properly. That is absolutely horrible though, feel real bad for the people involved but happy that everyone is safe.
  9. I rode it about 5 days ago and the front is better than the back IMO. Great airtime down that first drop. Also great airtime on the speed hill, camelback, off axis hill, and transition into breaks. I greyed out on the helix. Overall, 10 out of 10. Fantastic ride, my number 2.
  10. No not at KI lol. That happened at school. I’m just saying if that can happen at school, it can happen anywhere. And yes I know they have security and metal detectors, but you won’t believe some terrible fights that happen.
  11. Well I still think they should do the policy. I know I have the freedom to grow and learn, but last year we had this problem with a kid trying to attack one of my siblings with a knife a couple of separate times. Sorry if I’m misunderstanding this again, but I am all for this policy because teen violence really is getting worse.
  12. Penalized? No, I’m not being half forced to say this lol. I just really do think a chaperone policy should be set in place. I’m just stating that this is a real problem these days.
  13. I really do think they should do chaperoning. I feel strange saying this being a minor, but for the safety of children it really does need to happen. And yes, kids really have gotten that bad. It’s really sad to see some of my childhood friends doing stuff that makes me sick to my stomach even thinking about it. Depressing note now aside, KI also should have the security to keep an eye on this stuff so I would be surprised if this does happen lol. But I really do think that this chaperone policy should be a thing.
  14. This really is a problem. I went to SFOT this spring and the park was on high security and we had no idea why. I was in line for Mr. Freeze when a security guard was scanning everyone’s faces and then immediately a nasty fight broke out. We were around at least three of these. When we left the park I was watching YouTube and found a news video saying the night before there was a fight that resulted in a shooting that injured one person. They didn’t even shut the park down. I’m glad that these restrictions are being put in place, even if they might not work out as planned.
  15. I know it means more than a new coaster, I’m just saying Kings Island is a big enough park to get a large scale gerstlauer. I doubt we will get the 2022 gerstlauer, it’s just a very minor possibility. I could see this being a gas line replacement over a new coaster lol
  16. The construction that was speculated to be a new entrance or new gas lines or something like that. Plus I saw this video where someone is seeing these markers that were used for Orion in another area of the park. Edit: Here is the video/post https://m.facebook.com/coasternation/posts/ki-update-more-markers-are-in-place-near-the-front-of-kingsisland-we-will-contin/3524710160897193/
  17. To be honest, it’s possible that the 2022 Gerstlauer will be KI’s. I know they haven’t started any teasing but there has been some construction going on. Just a thought.
  18. Well we all know that Cedar Fair has its favorite children, and it’s favorite children don’t have the need for a Launch coaster. That’s really all premier does, and if the favored parks don’t need an LIM/LSM, why work with them?
  19. I thought I read closed for good, I was like jeez Kings Dominion, you really are Kings Island's sister park closing coasters left and right out of nowhere.
  20. So this came out of nowhere. They made a family coaster model to appeal to smaller parks. Glad to see how this goes.
  21. So Gene Staples is looking into buying Fantasy Island. This would make Gene Staples a theme park chain owner. It was said that he has plans to further his growth into the amusement park industry and it definitely looks like he’s doing that. Here is the vid for more info:
  22. Oh so it is it's own thing. Got it. Hey, at least Coney Island is getting back on their feet. Seems that they are actually taking all of this pretty well.
