  1. I can't judge it fairly until I've ridden it but I can say my opinion is that it doesn't look as fun to me as Steel Vengeance. I will say the barrel roll drop looks fun though.
  2. Thank you for sharing the video, it is the best quality pov I have seen of Son of Beast. A definite nostalgia trip, that's for sure.
  3. Certainly, if you look at the topics that have multiple pages to them, I think that the way it stretches the forum to accommodate for the page numbers is generally clunky. Nothing about it is defective or misused, just unpleasant to browse around.
  4. Not a glitch or anything in that vein but I must say that I dislike browsing the threads when it shows the pages available to choose from. IE, pages one through four and then the last page. For me, it makes browsing the different threads more difficult and overall more clunky. I am using the default theme.
  5. I would of voted other or not applicable. Height is irrelevant to me, as aside from the first drop, most rides stay in the hundred feet or lower range.
  6. Of the three eras of Kings Island's kids area, which theme did you like the best? While I first experienced the area as Hanna Barbera Land, I have to give my vote to Nickelodeon Universe. I think Paramount's use of the properties and addition of theming worked well.
  7. I wouldn't mind having Flash: Vertical Velocity moved to Kings Island. The zero g roll is something unique and the ride itself seems like it wouldn't be too complicated to remove and rebuild. I am sure there are plenty of spots it could fit in at Kings Island.
  8. I really enjoyed King Cobra and unfortunately only got to ride it in it's last season of 2001. I found it comfortable and enjoyed the airtime, positive Gs and the pointlessness of the trick track. I was very sad when I arrived at the park for opening day of 2002 to see it dismantled and in pieces.
  9. It's hard to envision anything other than another flat ride being able to work within the space the attraction building provides. I think they should just demolish it and start fresh.
  10. The slight bumps or rattles experienced on Banshee don't bother me. The restraints that close too tight and get tighter mid ride, do however.
  11. I would say Diamondback is my favorite coaster at Kings Island for it's height, speed and air time. Drop Tower would be my favorite flat ride due to the height and air time. My least favorite would be WindSeeker due to my motion sickness.
  12. There are some real interesting pictures in this gallery, thank you for taking the time to share them with us
  13. At least the park is letting people know about the removal. When I arrived at the park opening day 2002, I found my favorite coaster King Cobra in pieces being dismantled. I had no forewarning and that was a low point for my Kings Island memories.
  14. Diamondback at Frontier City, how a shuttle loop could be that rough astounded me.
  15. 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.
  16. Reminds me of this hologram arcade machine from back in the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fooFhfVUEI4
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. There are three flying dutchman coasters, Firehawk at Kings Island, Nighthawk at Carowinds and Batwing at Six Flags America.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
