KIC Tourist

KIC Tourist (1/13)



  1. Y'all better be posting first reaction stuff for yo homeboy down in Nashville.
  2. I'm excited to see Orion from the POV of The Beast's second lift and The Racer at night.
  3. Shameless self plug warning. I started off on this project as just a generic Mack Impulse. Trying to come up with a name along the way, I decided to name it Flight Commander after the KI Flat (it's just a dope name, too). After I had the name, I wished that something like this would take Vortex's land. I didn't follow Vortex's terrain; nor did I try to fit it into the same plot size since it was an after thought. Nonetheless..... Enjoy?
  4. Great. So now I'm just going to be refreshing the blog for the next 72hrs.
  5. "Grandpa, what was the longest time you ever waited for a roller coaster?" "Well, Paul, let me tell you about 2020...."
  6. I demand that we petition and boycott KI until they grow grass and plant every single tree and shrubbery that's visible in the ride announcement rendering. WHO'S WITH ME?!
  7. While you're right, the additional mass that a fully-loaded train adds to the total mass of the train is just a small percentage. Say, you have a fully loaded train of 32 people at 200lb each. That's 6,400 lb on a train that when empty weighs 40k+. It's not going to drastically change the conservation of momentum, especially with how good modern lubrication is.
  8. You'd almost rather them skip two rows at the end of the train to have the back one open.
  9. Do we know that they'll be doing row assignments?
  10. So, what row is everyone gonna try to grab for their first ride on Orion? I have a feeling the back row is gonna be the ticket, but it's hard to pass up a front-row first ride.
  11. With the ugliest 'side curtains' ever on a super-tame ride. Sad that the accident happened, but the side curtains seem like a huge overreaction. Thankfully, those don't seem to be stock to the new train model.
  12. So, how high is that kid sitting on the right side of the train?
  13. Hopefully it is a backwards side again on Racer!
  14. I get the whole business side of it, trust me. But this is also a theoretical ride that some one made in NL and posted to YouTube. Simply stating if I had the option, I'd pass in lieu of a different project.
  15. I don't know if new trains a la Full Throttle would work well. FOF has too many abrupt changes in direction. The way you're snugged into the seats seems fairly critical to not making those transitions more jarring on an open torso.
