  1. I am fairly certain I got a concussion from that ride, but I rode in the back last March.
  2. There's essentially power running along the entire ride, I'm sure you could tie into spots where there are pumps, operator booths, etc. What I think would be really cool is if they would add a night time lighting package to it.
  3. It was pretty well grown in, prior to them bulldozing all of it. They installed a second entrance/exit off of Columbia road in the past few weeks as well. I would love to have one of those spots right next to the McDonald's Truck Parking Lot. I've heard that is a common overnight stay area for some local lot lizards.
  4. They should offer some tent camping sites as well, I think you see a lot of people who would be interested in that at a lower cost, rather than be jammed in an area with a bunch of RVs.
  5. It says in the article they go on sale November 10th at 8 pm.
  6. People weld at heights all the time. Replacing a piece of track is a pretty major overtaking and I highly doubt they'd be rushing to do that for 3 more weeks in the season. Not to mention Clermont Steel would have to have all of the raw material on hand, they'd have to have time in their production schedule, they'd have to have time to get it painted.
  7. Why would a crane mean track work? They may be using a crane to put a bucket to help carry people up on. If you saw wiring pulled out, why would you assume it's a track issue? This isn't Instagram, you don't need to clickbait people. If I had to guess, it's something related to the lift system, whether that be the motor, the chain, sensors, etc.
  8. They likely are probably waiting on the plaque material and time to assemble them in the offseason.
  9. I really struggle to see them getting that much for this, outside of enthusiasts. I had a pretty deep connection to Vortex and that's about 4x as much as I'd be willing to pay.
  10. I remember going to the first Fear Fest pretty vividly. If I recall correctly, the houses were all subcontracted out through another company, hence why none of them returned. I remember there was one in the KI Theatre back areas called Captain Jack or something along those lines that was pretty good. The Freezer, I believe, did have cool air pumped into it. I remember it being colder than the outside. I believe that it ran around the front half of the Eiffel Tower in the circle. I distinctly remember a lot of the characters having "icicles" on their faces, in their beards, etc. It was well done.
  11. Did the park open the dorms this year as planned? Also, for the people who say "It's only about a half mile" try working 13 hours in a hot sticky day, then telling your International workers "Just hike about a half mile in the pitch black back to your dorm." Also, who's to say it's a shuttle route? Maybe they are just adding lights along the path so it's not a walk in the dark. Maybe the excavation in the parking lot is making a connecting path so they can drive them over to the employee gate, which is just on the other side of the main gate.
  12. I'm wondering if they are getting new trains for T3 as well as the Raptor.
  13. They are brakes that slow the ride down and don't stop it. Diamondback has trim brakes on the hill after the first turn around. The brakes after that, where the coaster can complete stop, are called block brakes.
  14. Sonder Brewing (basically across the highway) has a Giga Coaster lager on tap right now and in cans.
  15. We don't need a lot of things, but I do think a Ferris Wheel would be a nice attraction.
  16. Maybe not a great comparison considering it's had lots of problems. However, it says it's 6 miles round trip. Not a chance they would allow it to go over I-71 though.
  17. Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster are tight fits for the seatbelt for me, and I can get the lapbar down myself on Mystic, Beast, and Diamondback. Maverick is a little more forgiving. I can't say much about Steel Vengence, I've never ridden an RMC.
  18. Probably would have your answer if you called the park by now.
  19. I love that there was a Space Ghost ride in there. The Flintstones Freeway looked pretty awesome as well.
  20. The average guest at Kings Island doesn't seem to care about the parks cleanliness. Also, people love to add to piles of things, so it just makes things worse.
  21. They just said no reservations, they didn't say capacity limits.
  22. I did not work at the park in 2003, but I worked in Rides in 2004 and 2005 and worked a lot of Fear Fest shifts. I worked in Park Services in 2009-2011. I also worked a lot of Halloween Haunt shifts. Funny to see how much I've grown (or not) since 2002, thanks for bringing back this blast from the past.
  23. Not required, if you were there and you are concerned, you should get tested.
