    Lion Country Safari Mauling: An Untold Story

    That's well past the age a lot of zoologists start interning and working directly with animals. He just did some really dumb stuff. If he did what he did at 20, he very likely would have done it at 30 and 40 as well. If not even sooner, older people tend to be involved more in industrial accidents as they tend to take more shortcuts that they've learned in their experiences.

    I Won The Lykins Energy Solutions Sweepstakes At Kings Island!!

    I think they do a tree lighting every night. Unless I'm wrong. Winterfest begins Nov 23rd according to the site.
  3. I could definitely agree with this, so I'd be surprised if it's not banned chain wide. It's also it's just disruptive to other guests.

    HoliWood Nights 2019: Airtime!

    I generally don't care for enthusiast events, but I might honestly consider going to this.

    Smurf on eBay

    Seems like someone passed away that had all this stuff and a VERY lucky person got a lot of that from an estate asle. Smurf was a different seller though.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    Got my last two rides in Friday night. It took probably a full minute for the seats to lower in the station which I hadn't had happen before. Thought it was a good way for the ride to say goodbye to me. I rode it twice, the same amount of times I rode it when it was X-flight at Geauga Lake.

    Kings Island is adding dorms

    Yeah, If you ever drive by the ratty ass red building on the roadway around CP you take to get to the back lot, that's the Cedars dorm.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    If anything I bet it'd go to Mexico/South America. China/Dubai I think would have too much money for used rides from America.Maybe a economic leveled out Asian country like Korea or Japan etc. But I bet it goes south if (which it will be) not scrapped.

    Question about Beast's entrance?

    The area that used to sell concessions is just storage now. You're actually standing next to it when the 2nd queue house/middle queue house is open.
  10. There is a game there I'd really like to have... Any info on where you go this Ryan so I could share with some interested parties?

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    I would take something, but I doubt they will. It's not anywhere near the level of SoB leaving.
  12. Will you take me next year? Or we could do Dollywood or something else.

    The Firehawk back-story...

    X-Flights did for a very small amount of time. Someone posted a picture of the train leaving the station, loaded, in the upright position, either on here or reddit.

    The Firehawk back-story...

    Could be something related to the Carowinds incident.

    The Firehawk back-story...

    Yup, corkerscrews instead of our in line twists and helix. So our ride is a bit longer than Nighthawk. Firehawk also has dual stations while Nighthawk does not. Also ironic that the prototype/ older model is staying while Firehawk is leaving.
