  1. I think the restraints are comfortable at first, but, once you hit that airtime, your restraints can come down more mid ride and staple you. It doesn't always happen, but when it does it's god awfully painful. For the Arrow Loopers, I think they would be worse for me if I haven't ridden them so many of them. I've kind of gotten used to them. As for the SLCs, I've only ridden one (Kong at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom) and, it was very rough, but I found it fun actually.
  2. This is an awesome recording! Tbh listening to the Maestero is a whole lot more entertaining then anything on fun tv
  3. I don't know about the Phantom Theater pre show since the ride closed the year I was born, but I remember the Scooby preshow fondly. Hearing Shaggy explain how to use your blaster always got me hyped to ride the ride as a kid, no matter how many times I had to hear it while standing in line. It was a huge shame when they put the TVs in. It ruins the atmosphere now. When was the last time they brought the Phantom animatronics out? Have they been out recently?
  4. Are the restraints on RMC raptors any more comfortable?
  5. If they do that, I hope they keep some of the Boo Blasters animatronics or at least have a nod to the ride (like I said Scooby Doo and the Haunted Mansion was my Childhood). And I really hope they use some of the original Phantom Theater animatronics. I don't know if they still have them, but I know they kept them for awhile and displayed them during Haunts.
  6. I think 2020 will be the ride's 10th season. That's how long all the other dark rides in that spot lasted, with the exception of Scooby Doo and the Haunted Mansion(which sucks cause that ride was my childhood).
  7. Isn't it apart of The Beast's theming that there is a mine in the woods of Rivertown? Maybe they could retheme blsc to that. But, personally, I like it's car chase theming better.
  8. Oh my god! I thought I was the only one who found RMC's restraints uncomfortable! I wanted to like Steel Vengeance and Lightning Rod so much, but the restraints on them just hurt me to badly.
  9. This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I think Coney Mall is a shell of its former glory and needs some work. The area it's self doesn't need work. They've added new restaurants and the area has plenty of benches and trees. But, Coney Mall used to seem like a small amusement park inside of an amusement park, and now it just seems like another themed area.
  10. Im new hear, so I don't know if there has already been a similar topic, but I'm interested to see if you guys have any fun stories about any past or current rides at Kings Island.
  11. Oh sorry. That's good though. They should use that land for something.
  12. The rumor was apart of a larger Rivertown expansion rumor. I believe there a thread about it.
  13. Rumor has it they're just going to let the brush in that area grow out. I hope they don't. Coney mall needs a few more flat rides or another roller coaster even. I think your right about that. They did remove the ride rather quickly and CF was way more secretive about it's removal then they were about Firehawk's.
  14. I understand why. The animatronics were very creative and the idea was awesome! I just grew up with the Scooby Doo dark ride and I have found memories of it.
  15. It's a very interesting video. I had no idea someone died after riding the SOB in 2007 or that the ride broke people's necks and backs in it's first couple years. I'm glad someone mentioned it
  16. Have you ridden it in or after the rain? IMO the ride feels just as wild as it does during the night ride (you can just see during the rain ride) and the woods look beautiful and refreshed in the rain. After a storm or when it's misty is a good way to get an awesome day ride. I think Diamondback is technically the best out of the three (Banshee is a very close second), but The Beast is my favorite of the three and my favorite coaster in general. I've had rain rides, night rides during the fireworks, and rides in the front car on a breezy day. I've just had to many memorable rides on the thing not to love it.
  17. I see a lot of hate for this ride, but I would love to see Scooby Doo and The Haunted Mansion return. That ride was my childhood and is the reason I love Scooby Doo. But, I know that's wishful thinking since they would need to get the rights back. I would also love to see some of the old Oktoberfest and Coney Mall rides return like Der Springing Keggers, Bayern Curve, Hailey's Comet, and Skylab. I kind of want to see the Tumble Bug return too.
