  1. Can confirm. On most of my rides today I didn’t notice the trim at all.
  2. The most airtime of any gigacoaster in Ohio is in Mason. I’m no fanboy but MF is better.
  3. I agree that row 1 is best. Also rode in 3,4, 7 and 8–I think.
  4. I personally didn’t notice any airtime there, but I did get airtime on every hill after. Even a little pop up to the brake run.
  5. I loved Orion. it had more airtime than I expected and maintained its speed all the way until the end. Obviously I wish it were about 1000 feet longer, but it’s great to have a giga coaster at Kings Island.
  6. You may recall that the red Racer was shown going backwards in some of the initial Orion promotional artwork the park released.
  7. The teaser campaign for Banshee started on opening day 2013. The teaser campaign for Mystic Timbers began on passholder preview night.
  8. Both Banshee and Mystic Timbers were announced at events open to the public in the evening. Banshee was announced on 8/8/2013. Mystic Timbers was announced on 7/28/2016. Expect the announcement for this coaster to happen in either late July or early August.
  9. Not sure that would provide enough current. According to this https://www.coaster101.com/2016/07/20/coasters-101-launch-coasters-store-energy/, a regular lift hill motor works on about 200 amps while a launch could use up to 4000 amps. That also explains more about how various launches work such as Thunderbird, Incredible Hulk’s original launch, TTD and Lightning Rod.
  10. A full year before other construction began on Thunderbird, Holiday World needed to have a new electrical substation installed at the park to provide power for that coaster’s launch. It’s possible Kings Island already has that type of infrastructure in place with Flight of Fear being nearby, but any big new electrical equipment being installed could be an indication that KI’s new coaster will include a launch.
  11. Ride designers can't ignore what their customers (the parks) ask for. I'm sure Cedar Fair told RMC to go wild with Steel Vengeance, but on some rides (GateKeeper for example), B&M was told to make the maneuvers bigger to make them more comfortable for guests.
  12. There were Diamondback footings in along the midway Rivertown (near the antique photo store) that were poured prior to opening day 2008. So, I agree this is a slightly later start than the park's existing B&M coasters.
  13. This makes sense if you believe the rumor that Kings Island is getting this coaster using cap ex money Cedar Fair had originally budgeted for CGA's hypercoaster.
  14. Great find, but I don't think it has anything to do with the new coaster. Those css classes have been in that file since at least last September. https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.visitkingsisland.com/css/screen.css
  15. You can. http://blog.livestream.com/blog/2015/4/9/cast-away-with-livestream-and-chromecast LiveStream is a top notch service for online streaming video. It looks like their app also can AirPlay to Apple TV and works with Roku.
