  1. I realized that my mic sucks so whoever wants to create this PM me and I’ll send you the updated iceberg. Thanks for keeping up with my shenanigans everyone
  2. True. Many people don't know that though and say lack of popularity, life span, or even no reason whatsoever
  3. It’s unconfirmed when it actually closed and the reason it closed is interesting and very obscure
  4. changed Sorry for the double post, just don't know how to double quote. Not a Tapatalk expert
  5. Yes it did. I just put John C Allen alcohol and will add both
  6. I'm getting ready to record a video about this iceberg image that I made. Anyone got more recommendations before I start it?
  7. SeaWorld Orlando just announced Pipeline: The Surf Coaster. With KI having a lack of inversions and a launch, what is the potential that KI ever gets a surf? After seeing Pipeline announced, my guess is it will be the eventual replacement to Vortex or (heaven forbid because there’s a lot of other space) Congo Falls/Invertigo plot. With Cedar Fair trying to capture nostalgia, I’m guessing it would be themed to King Cobra
  8. So apparently Kings Island is closed (at least according to YouTube canon) so what’s your favorite KI ghost story? With it being October I need to set the mood
  9. Found! It was Banana Splits in Hocus Pocus Park. Mods feel free to delete this if needed or keep it for anyone else looking for it
  10. I remember seeing a post about a show that featured Kings Island during the 70s (or 80s but I’m pretty sure it was 70s) that someone recorded on a rerun and a KIC member purchased it and dropped it. I can’t find it. Can someone link me to it please? I could’ve swore it was here but I can’t find it or I just need to take my dunce cap off. Thank you
  11. Here’s my prediction on the matter. S&S is coming in to put an air launch on it. They recently built Tumbili at KD so they have worked with them in the past. I think this also goes into KD getting a coaster in the future called Hypersonic XLC based off, well, Hypersonic XLC. Cedar Fair has gone the nostalgia route recently. The hydraulic gets replaced by air compression (and I wouldn’t be shocked if Xcelerator gets it in the future) for reliability and KD gets Volcanos true replacement
  12. Orange and teal Invertigo. Looks weird with cyan and green
  13. It improved the ride. It is no doubt smoother but it didn’t feel as forceful this time around, but it may have been because I have ridden more forceful rides now. You can get a pop of air on the first hill after the first drop if in 1-2. Speaking of 1-2, IMHO it’s the best seat
  14. @ThrillKingsFitzyand I plan to go to CP together. I think I’ll go to KI at least once and I’m sitting for Kentucky kingdom and holiday world
  15. When is Coasterstock? I would love to go, but not sure if my schedule accommodates it. Also is it too late to buy Coasterstock tickets?
  16. Could you give updates on the retrack? I'll probably be on Racer a lot since I wasn't able to get on it last year
  17. Who is going to Opening Day for the 50th Anniversary? I want to go, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to. It's April 16 if you didn't know. If I go (or whenever I go) I plan to ride every 1972 attraction and get a lot of pictures of and on the Eiffel Tower. Just curious as to who's going and plans if you go.
  18. Could you PM me with it please? It would be greatly appreciated! Hard to come by a lot of it unfortunately.
  19. I think all that exists of it is that shotty home video. Crazy there isn't as much. Most of the pictures have a full queue but not many people filmed on or off of it
  20. Hey guys! A friend and I are currently working on a docuseries on Kings Island's former coasters as well as current coasters and oddities of the park. I was wondering if anyone had an footage of Bavarian Beetle (I know there is a shotty home video and BSAH video) Demon (Can't find anything at all) King Cobra (My friend asked but might as well ask again) Scooby's Ghoster Coaster (I know there is some footage but I was wondering if there is more) Coasterstock Flight of Fear with King Cobra's trains Ferris Wheel that replaced Bavarian Beetle If you have anything else, it would be really cool to add just to have an archive if it isn't posted anywhere. Thank you so much if you have footage I will be sure to credit you!
  21. Kings Island has many holes in its lineup. Not a single spinner, ejector machine, inversion focused sit down, or and intense launch. As of now, I’m guessing there are a few contenders for the next coaster: S&S free spin (bigger model) S&S hyper (Steel Curtain) Mack multilaunch Mack spinner B&M Dive B&M wing RMC hybrid ground up There’s pros and cons to each. The free spin isn’t a groundbreaking ride and could be seen as the same thing as SFGAM’s Joker, but is cheap, don’t take up a ton of space, and are good rides. The hyper isn’t reliable but isn’t like anything in the area. The multi launch is very expensive but has a good ROI and a good ride. The spinner doesn’t have a ton of cons, but I don’t see them adding it. The dive could be seen as a Valravn ripoff as well as the wing with GateKeeper, but they’re GP magnets. RMC would be an enthusiast magnet, but I doubt CF works with RMC for a little bit. What are your thoughts?
  22. Any speculation? I’m guessing they’ll do a little bit of everything to satisfy people. I was just talking to Fitzy and my guesses are they will get some new food options (haven’t been able to go there yet, but I’ve heard they’re limited), some updated walkways/scenery, and a new smaller investment coaster. I’m thinking either a GTX, rmc Hoosier Hurricane, or a Gravity family to add to the wood tradition the park has. It’s their first year back I think they want to make a big statement that they’re serious without breaking the bank
  23. Why not a haunt theme? Make a year-long haunt section. My favorite haunt is the outpost 5 one. Bat and Banshee are already themed. Just slap some scary imagery around and you’re golden (I’m guessing that Invertigo and Congo falls are on their way out anyway)
  24. I’m interested to see the general consensus of what people think: F - refurbish, R - relocate, S - scrap CP: Wicked twister (R), Skyhawk (F) KI: Invertigo (S), Congo Falls (S) CAN: Flight Deck (S/R), Time Warp (S/R) CAR: Nighthawk (S), Vortex (F) CGA: Sky Tower (F), Grizzly (F) KD: Anaconda (S) The list goes on, but I’m curious on what the community thinks
