  1. Just a little update, it seems that efforts have been put forth to continue with the restoration so it can participate in the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019. https://www.savinglulubelle.org/home.html
  2. If you make me the new moderator, I promise that I will build a fire wall big enough to keep the Six Flags fans out. We all know that they come to Cedar Fair parks illegally, and the only reason they come is because of the well maintained rides, not to mention to get away from that weird bald guy.
  3. Those are some hot babes specially the last one..........um human that is!
  4. I'm still gunning for Crazy Horse, the Giga Mag Lev Log Flume with the Lim launch. But I digress............ I don't think any one has mentioned a toboggan run, just wanted to point that out.
  5. It goes in the center of that turnaround down at the bottom of the pic I'm really buying what you're selling here, Kenban. The zones divided by the railroad track makes a lot of sense. I thought the statue was replacing the Eiffel Tower. Never mind about that...?Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk Where would the elevator go? Up. Tb, obliged. Up what?.......(I meant where? (Dang it......I meant HOW?)) I give up.
  6. OK this one is a little better but I forgot about it.
  7. Drones are not permitted over any of KI property regardless of how populated, or what occupies the land. The rules for this are set by both the FAA and KI. Every thing you wanted to know about flying drones and the regulations involved can be found here. A lot of it is very general and can be interpreted in many ways, so read carefully. https://www.faa.gov/uas/regulations_policies/ Also there are certain regulations regarding general aviation aircraft flying over a venue such as KI such as altitude and type of flying.(e.g. acrobatic is prohibited) I can go on but I am very busy designing Crazy Horse, the mag lev giga log flume with lim launch.
  8. ^Oh I know I know!!! And as for Credits, I would love to see an amusement park deal with a manufacture with credits, it would kind of go like this:
  9. So with the orange ribbons starting to show up does that mean that they ran out of pink, or are my hopes for a Susan G Komen race for the cure coaster gone?
  10. I totally forgot about this, a zip line roller coaster. (Now how to incorporate mag lev, water, and horses)
  11. The Log Flume actually opened at Coney Island in 1968 and was moved to Kings Island for the opening in 1972.
  12. I don't want to start any rumors but I think Universal is going to buy Kings Island and they are going to turn the KIMVRR into this!!
  13. I would love to see a meg lev log flume style carousel, and they could name it Crazy Horse!
  14. I was told earlier today that the restoration project for the DC 3 is on hold for the time being. If you go to Google Street view you can see the aircraft sitting out front in bad shape. Hopefully they can turn it around.
  15. A little history of the DC-3A that was used for the jumpers. It was first built for the military as a C-53 # 42-68710 and took part in D-Day operations with the 62nd Troop Carrier Squadron. It is currently at the Fremont Airport in Fremont Ohio, undergoing restoration. The restoration has been long and tedious with many issues holding them back, including the death of one of the major members of the team. Any ways here are a couple of articles and pics of the aircraft. http://www.airbornetroopcarrier.com/c-53-42-68710-62ndtroopcarriersquadron.html http://beta.toledoblade.com/local/2011/05/31/Volunteers-set-sights-on-neglected-troop-carrier-2.html http://www.fremontairport.com/saving_dc-3_lulu_belle http://www.airliners.net/photo/0728025/ It is very difficult to find info on one specific DC-3 because so many were built and most didn't come back to the states. Most staid where they served or were shot down, and a lot of them that did come home ended up in Canada. Also the fact that the DC-6 was in service by the end of the war did not help the fate of the DC-3. Thanks Gordon for starting this topic, we live in an area of the US and the world that is so rich in history in so many ways, we must learn it and preserve it no matter how small it may seem.
  16. They actually removed some growth from that area and planted new for WAH to match the habitation of the animals. The area did not start to open up to fields until you get to where the High School is, that was a shooting range, and there was farm land where the parking lot is and where the Hall of Fame used to be. This is pre-1960, I don't know when the school was built, but the shooting range was active as late as 1955 I think. (Dad used to go there) I could be wrong on some of this so please feel free to correct me.
  17. The above article is in no way related to nor is it associated to the individual by said name, so the answer is no I have no control over what happens to the property. Just saying.
  18. There is only one option for this expansion, that is a fourth dimension coaster that flies over DA called the Pterodactyl and you can listen to the theme song while in line!
  19. ^^So you have to go left right now because a Dem. is in office right? When a Rep. is in office you have to go right, right? Hopefully we can get an independent in there to straighten it all out.
  20. I say we get rid of the traffic lights, the're a headache!
