  1. That's how I felt about Green Lantern at Magic Mountain. The over the shoulder restraints and the shield at the side made you feel like you were trapped in a ball and being tossed around. It was claustrophobic and definitely painful.
  2. @Maddog I have ridden Raptor. I don't find it near as rough as other B&Ms like Rougarou. For me personally, Banshee's vest restraints grab and tug at my skin. It's pretty painful. But, their the only ride with vest restraints I've found painful. I love the restraints on Val Raven and such
  3. I honesty think The Beast has gotten smoother over the years. It used to give me bruises but now, even when riding in the very back, it barely shakes at all. I still think it needs a re-track, but I'm also nervous about a retrack. A retrack might take away the rides rumble. As for the most painful B&M I think we have it. Banshee's vest restraints plus its rattle has made it become far more painful than any of the head bangers.
  4. Boo Blaster -> Scooby Doo Race for Your Life -> King Mills Log flume (make it apart of River town again) Ladder game and Coke freestyle -> Der Spinnin Keggers
  5. I've also heard someone say that the only reason SOB was closed is because people were too sensitive. No joke edit: sorry for the double post, I meant to edit my previous comment.
  6. I got one! Scooby Doo was a good replacement for Phantom Theater. Honestly one I beleive. I thought it was charming, colorful , fun, and a great ride for kids and Scooby fans.
  7. Tagg is from "The Adventures of Gulliver". Gulliver was also in the enchanted voyage, and had a water raft ride in Hanna Barbara land named and themed after him.
  8. Kings Island (In Your Backyard!) - YouTube Looks like these guys still manage to have fun during the off season. As for me, ever since last year I have became pretty sickly(my brain is having a hard time communicating with my body). Its nothing to serious, but I've been home bound since before covid had started. Its very hard to get exercise. I get lethargic and dizzy really easily and some times even black out. This lack of exercise has lead to stress and back pain. So to remedy this( I know this sounds silly, but it works) I cast Kings Island povs on my tv, grab a wooden rod, and twist
  9. Cyclone Sams Worlds of Fun - YouTube I think we should put something like this in there, but with more elaborate theming and a more intense flat than a trabant. I would make it a psychedelic marsh theme and include a gigantic Alligator monster to rival the other monsters in river town. Either that or tear down the building and put a small water coaster there, but the former would be cool.
  10. Oh My God! I knew I wasn't the only one who liked Scooby on KICentral! I 100% agree. I honestly never thought it looked that cheap and I totally dig the combination of the omni-mover system and the interactive blasters.
  11. I'm not sure who said it or what thread they said it on, but I remember someone saying that whatever replaces Vortex needs to fit the carnival feel of Coney Mall. Though it's hard to describe why, I think Vortex fit Coney Mall amazingly. I think a Gerstlauer infinity, something like Monster at Adventureland, fits the Coney Island feel too. I truly think it is the kind of ride you'd find at home at a modern carnival or boardwalk park, and it's night look would really go well with the rest of Coney(plus it's compact enough to leave room for a Rivertown expansion/ new Coney mall flats.)
  12. Is this it. It was taken at the sign shop during a BeastBuzz. Here's the link: ACE Beast Bash 2006 - October 7 - Sign Shop - KIExtreme Photo Gallery
  13. I choose The Beast. There may be bigger and faster rides in the park, but this ride feels amazingly unique and has lots of charisma(and its also pretty fast)
  14. I would say getting rid of both the Antique cars and the eagles were a mistake. The fact that they brought them back (albeit they were smaller versions) clearly means a lot of people really missed both attractions dearly.
  15. I feel kind of alone on this when on KiC, but I loved the Scooby Ride. I used to ride the ride over and over again, and I wasn't the only one according to a lot of people I've talked to. Don't get me wrong Phantom Theater seems like a very creative and amazing ride, but I thought Scooby was a colorful, charming, and friendly feeling ride. Anyway, I think the best decision the park has made so far is building The Beast instead of rebuilding the Shooting Star. And the worst decision was building The Son of Beast.
