  1. Diamondback at Frontier City, how a shuttle loop could be that rough astounded me.
  2. Interesting video to say the least. It's neat being able to see the behind the scenes footage, even if it was obtained by trespassing.
  3. Reminds me of this hologram arcade machine from back in the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fooFhfVUEI4
  4. My choice will be for King Cobra mainly because I didn't get to ride it as many times as I would of liked to since I didn't get in to riding coasters again until 2001. Then when 2002 came, they removed King Cobra.
  5. I'll throw my hat in the speculation game and go with Firehawk leaving as well. The amount of land that would be opened up behind the ride is the prime reason I see it going. Future development would appear to have the most potential there. Removing Vortex or Invertigo wouldn't offer much outside of their respective plots of land in my opinion.
  6. There are three flying dutchman coasters, Firehawk at Kings Island, Nighthawk at Carowinds and Batwing at Six Flags America.
  7. I am glad to see they are bringing back the cars, they're a fun attraction for the whole family. I'll be interested to see how much landscaping will go into this iteration, it would be nice to have some and not have it just be a bunch of flat concrete track.
  8. I got to ride it yesterday and it's truly a world class coaster, top three easily. The speed, smoothness, air time and unique elements make the ride phenomenal.
  9. I am going to be there tomorrow, here's hoping I get to ride it without any issues
  10. Not factoring in the cost of operating and maintaining the attractions, I would say the removal of the Flying Eagles and Antique Cars was a poor choice. If for nothing more than the destruction of nice landscaping for the eyesore that is Back Lot Stunt Coaster.
  11. I may be missing it in the profile settings, but I can't seem to find where you go to edit your signature. Can someone explain where you go to do so on the current forum software?
  12. I am just thankful the ride is remaining open. I will be visiting the park for the first time this Wednesday and I am looking forward to being able to ride it.
  13. As a company, wouldn't you want to diversify your properties? What good would it be to have Cedar Point and Kings Island be overly similar? They are not terribly far from one another, so visiting both isn't an unfeasible task for those in their respective markets. Look at Delirium and Max Air, having ridden Delirium, I have no real desire to go to CP for Max Air. Their other flat rides that Kings Island doesn't have are attractive to me though. Why would Cedar Fair want to purposefully hinder or in some way limit one of it's own parks? Each park is unique and requires different management and additions. A small subset of guests may be clamoring for more record breaking coasters but they are likely the minority in the whole populous that is Kings Island's guests.
  14. I agree with this statement. I rode King Cobra and Chang and would take King Cobra over Chang any day. Chang had a cool layout but the pain I endured from the restraint system made me not want to bother riding it. King Cobra on the other hand I would ride multiple times in a row and love every lap.
  15. Neat, thank you for sharing the gallery. That was what I was hoping to see.
  16. Does anyone have or know of a site that features pictures from the lower observation deck on the Eiffel Tower? I don't think I've ever seen what it looks like up there or the view from that point on the tower. To clarify, I am talking about the deck at the base of the tower, just above where the four legs of the tower meet, not the deck at the top you take the elevators to.
  17. This is what you can expect with Flight of Fear, with the exception of Kings Island bringing the train to a complete stop on the mid course brake run. Poltergeist doesn't have a MCBR.
  18. I am glad they are building a coaster with the intent of it being thrilling, good with capacity and reliable.
  19. Keep in mind that it is perfectly fine to be critical of something you enjoy.

  21. Today was my friends birthday, so we took him to Kings Island. This was my first time being at the park in a few years, so Banshee was new to me. We started off with The Bat and I liked the clean look of the under station but overall the queue and ride need some more theme love. Next we went to Banshee and waited around thirty minuets to ride. Our row was number seven and overall I was underwhelmed by the ride. It's very smooth and fast but all you get to see is the car right in front of you. I'm sure I'd enjoy it far more if I got to ride in the first row. The zero g roll and roll after the second loop were the highlights for me. After some lunch at Arbys we came back and rode Drop Tower and Diamondback, then left. Overall I was impressed with the work the park did on Banshee and the surrounding area. Diamondback on the other hand needs some nice new paint and seats, it's starting to look a little haggard. I am the one on the right in the TMNT shirt.
