  1. Is Orion closed today due to wind issues?
  2. ok I will go back to that area again. So does anyone know where the photo box with the red and blue racers is? They had one outside of The Beast a year or so ago.
  3. So I have found the old picture board by Racer and the other by Vortex. I have heard that there is a third one but where is it? I looked around the Carousel area but found none. Let me know please.
  4. No, car on track was finishing up and made it to break run. Just had not seen this before.
  5. I was waiting in line for it to open that day and found it odd they were sending trains up the hill before the train on track was in the final break run....
  6. I have seen several people post pictures of the old TowerTopics magazine from Kings Island. Does anyone have electronic copies we could see?
  7. yeah, found them. Was just wondering why off of home site but no problem
  8. KI (and CP) used to have videos of the rides on their site and I cant find them now. Did they remove them or are they just hard to find on the site?
  9. So does this mean the entry track to the helix will now be flattened and at not such an angle for entry?
  10. How about a funpix on-ride picture booth for Racer?
  11. nope, cars are small and only hold stuffed animals.....
  12. We can only hope that Gravity Group will finally not only retrack 2 KI legendary coasters but be the next install of a coaster (Vortex site?)....
  13. A local man on 132 and Shiloh here in Goshen has a very nice Xmas display each year and you can walk through it. He bought and built a wooden coaster this past summer and has moved and rebuilt a smaller version of it for his display. You can walk through his light display at night. Here are some pictures.
  14. I am also hoping they clean up and paint the wood stock queue. It is a mess and looks awful and very sad since lots of kids ride it (and me). I emailed Don asking if that was in the projects as well.
  15. What time will the WinterFest parade run each night?
  16. Hopefully they do Woodstock express queue and station. They really need it.
  17. So I have heard nothing about wicked twister since announced closing. Is this ride going to scrap yard or another park r what?
  18. They sold the Orion color changing cup at the store right by the ride last year. I see the full set on the kingsislandgear.com site but only want a few of the cups. I had read that someone saw individual cups sold in the park. Can anyone confirm this and if so where they might be? I have asked at Customer Service and did not get an answer.
  19. Anyone else notice the kigear link on the visitkingsisland.com site is no longer there?
  20. I just went to visitkingsisland.com and the link to the OnLine store is gone...... Same is true for the Cedar Point website... Why???
  21. The information I mentioned I found came from Reddit and in the /rollercoasters group.
  22. Well I got a text last night from my son that said The Beast was closed Thursday and riders were evacuated. They apparently started doing track work right away to fix some issues. He sent me an aeiral picture from above and the segment and it shows new track wood on it. Not sure if this is the only spot but apparently it is a track related problem and they are working it.
  23. The supplier is SpirngDot and they serve ALL KI website online orders. They are near downtown cincinnati and you can call them and order and pickup if you want. See bottome of KI online store page
  24. My daughter wanted a small snoopy and they ran out early this season. Kept coming back to park and no avail as no new stock. Well I saw that the number online to call for SpringDot is 513-542-4000 (ask for Halanna). They said you can order online for this at CP online store or Carowinds as they have them. FYI, Springdot is the store and in cincinnati that sells them. So I asked if I could just order one and pickup since close and not pay shipping. Yep. Went there, got it and no problem. So if you live local, Springdot office is near downtown cinti and you can call directly and get online stuff there. Going back again for a couple CP pins and one more KI pin .
  25. So I keep reading of people getting cancellations for their reservations. Do they even have an updated official opening date yet?
