  1. Well we expect something like 'Clifford the Big Red Crane' for the upper lifts of the ride track.
  2. It has been laying on the ground next to the crane for a couple days now. Looks like it will connect transfer track section to the piece already up.
  3. I know but the road they use to bring track and equipment is in sight. It is the area where we saw the first piece of track coming in the other day.
  4. you have a psuedo one now if you watch the Banshee cam
  5. They are putting up what looks to be a building about 2/3 the way down the ride in the woods. You can see the concrete from the Blue racer. What will that be?
  6. They retracked blue this past year and it is WONDERFUL!!! So really hoping they would do the same to red over this 2019 winter. Of course Blue does not open till noon and why? They just retracked it so open it early and red late.....
  7. What is the angle of drop on the first hill?
  8. I was riding Racer (blue) last night with my 'We rode backwards when I was a kid (racer)' shirt. Had the ride op take a picture of it. Great shirt from CincyShirts.
  9. So any ideas on the length of the new coaster?
  10. just curious, but will this coaster break any records (height, length...)?
  11. I think they should go for the worlds longest steel coaster to have both Beast and Beast Unleashed to be the record holders....
  12. Hey, what about something very old coming back..... Racing Steeplechase ride....
  13. We have been to Winterfest a couple times so far and hope to go on Dec 30th. I was bummed they had no Mystic Timbers shirts that had Winterfest themes. There was a Santa sled on a coaster with a slogan 'Ride All Day' or such on International street. Hope they add some next year as that is on my wish list.
  14. Is Mystic Timbers running this week?
  15. Growing up my dad's company did summer picnics at Coney Island. Then when they built KI we started there from its opening. I remember my dad getting into the park area and driving along side the construction of The Racer. As a kid, I was a big cyclist and got a KI season pass and would ride my bicycle there a lot (about a 9 mile ride from my house). I have had a season pass every year they have been sold. The first year there was only around 100 people. I spoke to Rob Decker at the Mystic Timbers Media Day again this year and we spoke about this as well. I wish I still had my original pass. They used to just have a person with a clipboard write down your name when you came into the park. I would love to know if there are any other people out there that have been a pass holder all these years....
  16. I agree with most about the train and its position of where you sit and how much you see. It would be nice for the train to pull up a few more feet and then stay there until the front screen is mostly done. If in front you see beginning but not end, if in back you see end not beginning. Hoping they read this and can adjust the placement of the train for the Shed.
  17. Here is an article from a Holiday Inn magazine in 1972 plus the 1972 Guide Book. Ah the good old days....
  18. Got 6 laps this morning (2 in dark and 4 in light). It is AMAZING!
  19. I bought one of these shirts last year on closing day.
  20. So wondering if they will enclose the transfer track building or leave the walls open? I am sure they are open now for easy access but will they enclose it like the other buildings?
  21. There was a discussion on line with the designers and the curve drop is by design. They said it causes less stomach issues for people that way.
  22. Long time no see Shaggy.. Met you a couple times at KI events. I love the old nostalgic KI stuff as well. Life long resident of Cincinnati and been at KI since they opened. My dad used to go to Coney Island for company picnics till they opened KI. I remember driving on a dirt road along The Racer when being built. Lots of old memories from this park (including canoes where Beast resides).....
  23. So where will the official entrance for Mystic Timbers be located? When will we get the 2017 park map posted?
  24. Yes, my oldest son went on Friday night (passholder night), and dispatch times were 6 - 7 minutes. VERY SLOW. They need to work on that.
  25. Does anyone have information about a Dont Scare Me Glowband at KI right now? My oldest son said he heard about some glow band you can buy and if you wear it, the characters are to leave you alone? Is that only in the midway?
