  1. In 1993 the spike at the top was the very last year I saw the spike on the Eiffel Tower at its original height, Labor Day 1994 I saw the spike half its own size, I could never figure out why they did that. They also added extra spikes that same year that set on the arcs at the top. I asked the park officials about why it was shortened they never replied on the reason why the spikewent shorter.The only reason I could think of was to differentiate the tower at KD from the one at KI, How I differentiate them is how the one at kings dominion does not have a satellite on the south face, and the lon
  2. I believe it should be brighter than what you see in those photographs CF made a poor decision on lighting choices, why light the front side with these colored lights, when you can use the Eiffel Tower's lights and light all sides of the tower.
  3. Why do you need all of those extra lights when the factory ones are just fine. Cedar Fair is taking away from the night asthetics from the Eiffel Tower. I am sure glad KD is not doing it to their Eiffel Tower the people on the east coast are a little bit wiser.
  4. Sorry Adam, but I am going to have to disagree with you here. I think the different color lights make the tower more attractive. During most of the summer you can see the tower in its normal greenish color for a majority of the day. Let the tower show off a bit in the night hours. The archects at Intamin did not intend for CP to do destroy the lighting effects on the tower. The tower is not green it is powder blue like the statue of liberty. I disagree with your opinion on the colored lights. You sir, are wrong, the Eiffel Tower is painted "Eiffel Green" which is a very distinct
  5. Put six strings of colored lights on the drop zone. On my thirteenth birthday on July 3, 1995 I recall seeing the arch of the eXtreme Skyflyer with those type of lights when the attraction first opened.
  6. It is not the beacon I am worried about right now. I do appreciate your input. They should use both sets of beacons on top simultaneously. Actually those lights are on the blueprints.
  7. What about a combination of both? Maybe some of the lights like you are talking about in the trees on international street and on the tower itself.

  9. The lights that hang from the top and the others that surround the two observation decks, and the twelve that are mounted above the first platform look like pearls in the distance or in photographs. also like the green hue that the lights leave. Those other lights take away from what the tower's archetechs at intamin intended.
  10. I Dislike the colored lights that have been projected on the tower. I still think the tower's own lights should illuminate the tower at night. It takes the mood away from the tower. What is your view on this topic?
  11. What Kind of Rides are Coming To Kings Island for the 2008 Season?
  12. Kings Island is threatened with the Rockies Express Oil Pipeline coming to Warren County. The route of this pipeline is routed through Shelby Co. Rush Co., Franklin Co. IN, Butler Co, Warren Co. Clinton Co. Ohio. How is the park handling a situation of the pipeline and what do you think about the situation? for further information go to www.rexpipeline.com.
  13. I would like to see some aerial shots of Firehawk. This is the kind of revitalization of pki that is needed.
  14. I like going to Kings Island to escape from the real world. The rides I ride: Eiffel Tower Viking Ship Racer Top Gun White Water Canyon Kings Mills Log Flume Zephyr Beast Beastie Name Defunct Shake Rattle and Roll Scrambler Vortex Dodgem Monster Flying Eagles Defunct Sponge Bob Square Pants 3d Kings Island and the Miami Valley RR
  15. They need to keep the festhaus that is a popular gathering place in the park when it comes to indoor dining. The festhaus has been there since 1982 why change something that is fine the way it is. I like the glass mirror on the top. and the ribbons on the roof. It looks the way it did in 1992.
