KIC Superstar

KIC Superstar (11/13)



  1. Guess I need to visit Discovery Kingdom this year while I have the chance.
  2. Meanwhile Gilroy Gardens and Schlitterbahn are at home because they didn't even get invites to the meeting.
  3. This project has to be one of the most badly kept secret in CF history.
  4. Looks like the name, LOGO and POV was leaked a day early. While the coaster type is not necessary a 'leak' as it's been long known for a year now. I'm unsure why KD didn't go the route of, "Find out what that thing in the parking lot will look like next year" No link provided to abide by sites TOS.
  5. Orchestral music goes a long way!
  6. The material is the voiceover... Didn't Krazeb tell you?
  7. Music plays such an integral importance! We have all see a scene in a movie where without the music it would not have been so good. Imagine watching the FoF preshow video without music. ::Awk:: I do believe playing orchestral music is a much better choice than one with lyrics. this was something I loved about walking into Paramount Kings International Street. The grand scores of pieces of their greatest movies made you take all it in and write your own personal lyrics about how it felt to you rather that telling you with lyrics. Something that made IMA score so popular with their attachments to ride soundtracks. Walking into a park with that epicness is much more intriguing. One park that does fantastic with their area BGM is Tokyo's Disney Sea
  8. Yes. The Control Voice is the same guy in the station (although Paramount never released the names of the actors or voice actors for the ride) The station v/o are their for ascetics for deepen the sense of fear. The roller coaster is called Flight or Fear for a reason reason Even some station announcements were removed when the OuterLimits IP was lost.
  9. Vic Perrin played the original narrator known as "Control Voice" on the original series "The Outer Limits". Kevin Conway took over as the voice in the shows revival in 1995 but Vic's voice is commonly attributed to the show intro. When the roller coaster was built in 1996 they must have gone with Jim Cummings to take the role for the attraction. As for who 'Control Voice" is and his part in the show (or ride) he is just a narrator and does not play any true role. It is important to note that the current preshow video for FoF is the the original cut, as when Paramount lost the rights to "The Outer Limits" they removed a minute long snippet to prevent any copyright. So you no longer see the Outer Limits logo and narration. You can see this edit linked below starting at 2:52. Additionally the last line at the end of the video was edited to remove the line "The Outer Limits" https://youtu.be/djHzt6MqrXY Otherwise I'm not sure what you are asking...
  10. Sooooooo they are building a dive coaster called cliff hanger... but not off the ACTUAL CLIFF at the park?!
  11. Agreed! People have ideas worth spreading. Some may be far-fetched or beyond CF budgeting but sometimes in a perfect world we like to say "If I owned a theme park..." Trust me, I have hundreds of things I would love to change about Kings Island if I were in charge, including technical advancements and maintenance. But unfortunately we live in a world run by what you can afford, and we can see clearly what CF can and cannot do. The way I see it, a park is like a car. All shiny and new when purchased, but as time goes on things need work and a lot of money needs to be put into it to keep it looking and running great. When you upgrade the car with something new... in time that will add up the running cost on top of all the other things needed to make it run. In terms of Mystic Timbers and as a working technician, I'm unsure of the system they are using for the shed. But sometimes audio issues can stem from something larger that can be a costly refurbishment. It isn't as easy as you may think it is. The best Kings Island can do is add signs that explain certain features may not be running, such as what Universal does when in Technical Rehearsals for new rides. In the case of Mystic Timbers which heavily featured "What's in the Shed" into it's storyline, from a PR perspective I feel it is important to let patrons know if their experience will differ from it's original form. I do recall in 2005 when I worked at Tomb Raider: The Ride we had a "Hot Set" sign in the event show elements were not used to place out in front.
  12. A great concept was posted about a year ago in YouTube of a Giga coaster using that area and the parking lot. https://youtu.be/zqDaWuJbrBk
  13. Just got my ride on Velocicoaster yesterday. I have no words, it is just the full package from entry to exit and everything in-between. Hands down the best roller coaster and overall experience in America. Major props and standing ovation to the creative team! THIS is a love letter to every thrill seeker and Jurassic world IP! 11/10 I'll have to take time to make a fully detailed review at some point.
  14. That it was. It was a family of enthusiasts split between a number of sites, but we were all still family. I remember going to PKIunlimited for the Forum, KIextreme for the RCT recreations, and PKICentral for the galleries. At the time, I began mainly on PKIUNLIMITED before they ultimately merged with PKICentral. I recall there being a fourth fansite for KI but I can't remember the name. Anyone else here who remembers? (Gosh were getting old)
