  1. It was! This is based off when I worked at the park 2005-2009. Tower 2 and 3 as they call it were some of the best positions in the park back when you had control over cannons. Once the pay stations were updated the option for the ride attendant and Tower 3 we're removed. However; once in a while maintenance would come unlock the controls for manual controls of EVERY CANNON. That was the best 15 minutes of my KI career I ever had. Plus I had never seen the lookout point so packed to just watch me absolutely obliterate each raft with water cannons.
  2. Tomb Raider did not have this piece of theming. I don't recall Crypt having it either
  3. Amazing project! Wow, you can really see how much Beast has been down!!!
  4. Coasting Thunder released an INCREDIBLE FPV video at Holiday World. Had to share, definitely one of the best shot and edited follow vids of a roller coaster I have seen! *Video was shot with permission from Holiday World please do not attempt yourself
  5. Responses like this is how arguments begin on this site which I'm not trying to create. As a theater major I am just speaking from experience of gigs I have been a part of. Most recently Hamilton in Vegas recently began selling tickets and is receiving a lot of sales and those that were lucky enough to get a ticket only recently found they had been bamboozled by TicketMaster (which in itself is its own bag of issues) to only have their tickets that they were so excited to use to see one of Americas biggest show revoked due to overselling of other promotions. It hits a blow when you love theater as much as some and don't get your entry as you thought you had. Imagine how it is for enthusiasts trying unsuccessfully to get a vertual queue for Guardians Cosmic Rewind opening day to not make it to any of the time slots. I'll admit I have gone to see previews of shows before their official opening that were sold well in advance just so I could be one of the first to see a brand new show open in Vegas, my main concern was purely compassion towards the members on this site that has mentioned they will be there on opening day, I'm sure they were excited to be the first to be in line as I am sure they will still be tomorrow. Next time you want to play your violin leave it for the orchestra alongside next to Maestro. I do applaud the KI team and Paul for working long hours no doubt to get the lobby ready in time for the preview! That is a major feat. In addition all the work that has been done this year for the 50th that still just seem to be coming one after another. We got so much more than we ever expected!
  6. Honestly I get what they are trying to do here but it seems unfair to those of you that scheduled around trying to be the first to see the show on Saturday.
  7. Yes, I have both A and B version. Including outdoor and indoor queue.
  8. It's not unheard of that VIP tours for parks not include park tickets but that is Disney. Not to downplay Kings Island as a quality park as it definitely is but the incentives are not compelling enough for me to really recommend this. For me all you need is a Fast pass and Meal Plan for a great day.
  9. Yeah, when I think of VIP I tend to think of something more private. Is there a reason the IR can't be used as a VIP lounge during the day?
  10. It must have been a very recent decision as the ride never opened for the season but was still on the park map. Whatever the reason is, it's not an attraction I'll necessarily miss. This does once again open up yet another prime area in the park. Adding to the list of Vortex, Action Theater, TRTR building, Plot behind Eiffel Tower. It's almost a blessing the park has so much opportunity for expansion inside the park where parks now need to resort to building on top of another attraction or build outside the property.
  11. Yes. https://youtube.com/shorts/DdWy4zxQSC8?feature=share The other videos are POVs thus will not be posted.
  12. I think some explanation is needed considering it is on the list of rides on KIs main site. At least saying the ride is closed. I wonder if Carowinds running at half speed has anything to do with it's closure. Can anyone confirm if World's of Funs wind seeker is open or running at half speed?
  13. Congratulations Even. Hopefully I will still be alive when KI is 100 and your next book is on the shelves!
  14. Hopefully it is back at 3 train operation for the 50th celebration next week.
  15. I highly doubt they will, if anything they will just state the ride is closed for inspection. KI doesn't seem to discuss or output news of this kind unless it is on main stream news. Twitter rarely responds to guests.
  16. Don't expect it open on Sunday; after an investigation, Either the coaster will go to one train operation or continue to stay closed. This station mishape is also 3 years from a similar accident on Valravn in 2019. It was about a month before it reopened.
  17. I wonder if the park has a backup if all credit card systems go down since they are now cashless.
  18. Anyone get food or go through Festhaus? Does the inside still have that weird smell? The smell is one of the main reasons I can't eat in there, which is unfortunate because I like Panda and Pizza.
  19. Thanks for the continuous updates Brad!
