  1. It has been taken out. They were magnetic ones I believe. See KI's official 2014 POV to see it. That's why there's a random concrete pad underneath; to use a lift for maintenance.
  2. This is the reason I didn't try real larosa's for a VERY long time. Once I went to a proper restaurant, I really enjoyed it. Idk why they allow their name to be tarnished at Kings Island.
  3. But maybe it doesn't last though. Banshee's was removed.. One can hope :p
  4. I'm excited that the low-to-the-ground-non-inverting-zero-g-roll is finally finished! Those supports have been there for awhile :p
  5. Very happy that they readjusted the cam so that the entire ride is in view rather than it cutting off the station area. Makes me wonder if it's manually adjusted and you can't for-sure tell where it's pointing lol edit - I'm aware I'm not the first to notice it; just been sitting on that desire for awhile :p
  6. Lol when it was confirmed we were getting a giga, I thought it meant Vortex would get repainted (at least partially again), just like when DB came. Haha hahah..uhehwhehuhuh...
  7. Work for the park and hope that you are blessed with an employee riding window :p
  8. I'm gonna hate on Orion where I see fit, and I'm not going anywhere Looking forward to my first ride though! -- BTW we now have an additional piece of track on the turnaround. Only way back is toward the brakerun!
  9. Came to see how the ride looked in the snow. Interesting that they're still doing a test run for Zephyr lol
  10. Winterfest will be CLOSED tonight, December 16, 2019
  11. Who knows, but I'm certainly just hoping it's not going to be a substantial setback.
  12. I knew there was something weird about the train colors!
  13. Same. I always thought its placement mean they wanted to expand the waterpark to both sides of voyage.. but I think Pilgrim's Plunge may have hurt that plan; and then it was clear with the addition of Thunderbird that there must have been a change in future expansion ideas. (This all just assumptions btw)
  14. Looks like they are in the process of putting the highest support up right now
  15. We got beyond the 2nd hill today~ One more support to complete the 2nd highest crest on the ride!
  16. I think it would be realistic to expect something a little less heavy than 'the shed' for Orion. But, to expect it only in the line in that building before the stairs. I will be surprised if anything os notable in the station, let alone the actual ride beyond some audio. I would guess some sort of 'debriefing' sort of environment, talking about the impending meteor, thanking us for volunteering etc. I hope anyways. It'd be nice to bring show room queues back to the island :p
  17. I love Kentucky Kingdom's internet presence haha They've had interactions with even Universal because of their nonstop meme-age :p I also love that they acknowledge the roughness of T3 when they advertise that ride on Instagram :p
  18. So, the huge empty space where FH used to turn into the station, there wasn't anything in that location in the blue prints right? I just realized that's gonna be a huge empty space lol
  19. You'd probably only need 30 minutes between other shows to use the same performers. They only have to change and then perform, the floats can be taken care of by a different team. The summer had the parade.. 1 hour after HRN ended, and then.. idr what time their night time show started.. but i wanna say it went at 9pm.
  20. The performers I've spoken to are quite relieved that there isn't a WinterFest parade this year lol Not to undercut you, just surprised those are the opinions you've found!
  21. Agreed. And honestly boo blasters is rather poor in quality. But more indoor, air conditioned rides mean less people will leave when it's rainy, and more people will stay longer if it's hot. I agree with your water park opinions :p
  22. Ah, okay thanks. I just didn't understand the reference. I googled it seeing it was a movie, but still didn't get the reception of it. :p
  23. Luckily, coming from the south, almost nothing is seen on 71. See my signature XD.
