  1. Seatbelts come from the left side of the seat! How did you get a Nexus 5 for $350? Mine was the Nexus 5 32 GB which I bought from Google Play for $400. Well I got the 16gb model and the base price was $350 but cost a bit more after tax and shipping. Got one for me and my wife think the total was $750. 16gb is fine for me since I had the nexus 4 before I upgraded and got used to using cloud storage and really don't need a whole lot of physical storage. Upgrade was totally worth it, better camera, LTE, screen that's world's better. Great phone Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  2. darn wish I knew that, would of tried that. Is there a secret to Diamondback too because I can fit it but it's kind of painful and I worry about my $350 google phone being spiderwebbed when I pull it out after riding lol. My phone was pinned right up against the harness.Oh BTW where did the seatbelts come from? Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  3. Well me and my wife attempted to ride it, and I was successful. Barely with some help. My wife wasn't even close. Really not crazy about this "thigh pincher" design the new b&m's have, Banshee is pretty much just an otsr modified Diamondback harness. People just need to quit complaining about head banging! The ride manufacturers are listening and making it tougher for us larger people lol! Oh well my wife used to be able to fit Diamondback but that was before my son was born. Oh well maybe this will be motivation for me and my wife to start working on a healthier lifestyle...ha ha I wish, still haven't found that motivation yet Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  4. Forgive me if this has been asked already but I want to know the answer to the tough question. For people of "exceptional size" how forgiving are the harnesses? Only other B&M invert me and my wife have been on is Raptor at Cedar Point. No issues there and room to spare but there is 20 years between the coasters so obviously it's not much of a guarantee. How do these harnesses compare? Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  5. Nevermind, my post wasn't really relevant to the topic, problem with Tapatalk and the unread section, hard to pay attention to what section the post is in. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  6. Probably Invertigo. I say that because while I'm not a big fan of Adventure Express or flight deck, they are still fun enough to ride if I don't have to wait long. Invertigo is never fun, because as soon as it changes direction. I start feeling nauseous. I always get off that ride feeling sick. Unless I'm trying to ride every coaster there I disregard it nowadays Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  7. I think I kinda jumped the gun on that and stuck my foot in my mouth. I'm a coaster fanatic but haven't ridden enough coasters to make that kinda claim. So Nevermind, nothing to see here lol Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  8. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't all roller coasters have a brake run? Alot do, so it is rare. I have to say to be fair, I haven't really ventured far outside the Midwest to ride coasters. So I don't really have alot of b&m inverts to compare to other than batman and Raptor. And the one slc I rode, you guessed it, T2,which was back in '98, really can't recall much of the ride other than it being too short Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  9. Just watched the official POV, I didn't see a mid ride brake run. If it doesn't have to brake run that's amazing, because every other b&m invert and vekoma hang and bang I've rode has a mid ride brake run Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 4
  10. It's really a "to each his own" situation here. I get some people wanting some new state of the art coaster and being disappointed. And to me, I haven't been to an amusement park in 2 years, haven't really followed the news and it was a complete surprise to me. Inverts have always been my favorites, hell when I finally made it out to Cedar Point 3 years ago, raptor was second to only maverick. I loved it and rode it several times and each time got of it complaining to my wife and ranting about how Kings Island never got one of these. It's like a pipe dream come true, accepted the fact we'd never have one, and bam, it's coming next year, and it breaks 2 world records in the process. I've always wanted a b&m invert at Kings Island now it's coming, somebody pinch me! Can't believe it. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  11. Lol well can't argue with that. I mainly meant parks that were still open not reopening but it's a technicality I can't really argue. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  12. Why do so many people think that SOB was an eyesore? I personally think it was an amazing structure to look at, especially up close! I was mainly referring to its last couple years of SBNO. I was always bitter that it stood there, one of the first things you see when the park comes into focus but you were supposed to pretend it didn't exist. Rather have nothing there than a coaster I can't ride. When it was operating I agree, it was great seeing it but when it was just in limbo waiting on the park to make a decision, it was just an eyesore. I think we all knew it was coming. Has any park just let a coaster sit for a couple years and reopened it? Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  13. I haven't read all the details, same restraints as raptor or new restraints? I mean raptor is 20 years old so I'm sure they've made improvements since then, but I usually improvements come with the sacrifice of less people that can enjoy them. Mainly those of us of exceptional size. Will that be a problem? Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  14. I have to agree about the record breaking comments. Who cares really. If they would of actually focused on making the world's greatest wooden coaster and not on breaking every single record possible, Son of Beast would of still been standing. Instead it ended up being a 9 year disaster amongst 3 owners! I used to defend Son of Beast but gotta face the facts, the end result was a money pit and a liability concern for many riders. Also speaking of record breakers, terra coasters, coasters that exist for one purpose, to break records, and thats about the only thing their good for. Otherwise your waiting in line 2 hours so you might get to ride a ride that's all of 20 seconds long. Cedar Fair made the right call, yeah it breaks the length record but it's not the focus, the focus is to get rid of a 200 foot eyesore and put in a ride people want to ride, that the park needs. Can't wait, I'm pumped for next season! Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  15. This is my first post in 3 years (lol at my profile picture). Just gotta say I'm ecstatic about this announcement. No this isn't some new innovative one of a kind coaster, but it's loooooong overdue. I have been a fan of b&m inverts since Batman the ride opened! I can't tell you my disappointment when I saw Face/off on a commercial for the park in 98 and showed up thinking Kings Island finally had a nice invert only to see this little tiny inverted clone of Kentucky kingdoms vampire coaster. I was actually pretty angry that day lol. Over time I grew to like it, and with age, grew to hate it again. It makes me sick. I mean literally, as soon as it changes direction, I'm feeling nauseous all the way back to the station. Didn't have that problem till I turned 30, now I stay away. Anyway at this point I had given up hope, really felt like we just missed that era, didn't even realize b&m was still making them. I think as far as innovative and unique coasters, we have Flight of Fear and The Beast, doesn't get much more unique than those. People whine about "oh its not a giga", tell me what can a giga bring that Diamondback doesn't already provide, or even succeed? Because I've rode both millennium force and Diamondback several times, and Diamondback is world's better. I couldn't be happier. I really don't even care about the records it breaks, I can now ride a b&m invert at a park that's close to home. It's exactly what Kings Island has needed for almost 20 years now!
