  1. In the report it's clear to me there was a problem from looking at the pictures. This could have been avoided if they would have looked into it. The rust, rub marks and bent metal clearly show it was coming. The bolt had rust in it where it had a fracture for some time and didn't just happen. To me it looks like the train wasn't tracking where it should have been for whatever reason.
  2. I was in line for Delirium with him it's first season. It didn't have much effect on my life but I do remember it.
  3. I remember The Unofficial Guidebook to Paramount's Kings Island. I have a signed copy of that one someplace.
  4. This is the official end of the coaster wars. They are probably drafting a peace treaty at this point.
  5. The abnormal ECG has Q waves that indicates a past heart attack. The owner of that ECG should avoid all rides and eating at the park.
  6. I got to sit in Volcano seats at KD and KI. They transplanted used seats to Drop Tower from Volcano one season. I liked Volcano and I probably got to ride it 20 times over the years.
  7. Seems there is a double standard when it comes to park roaches. I recall Six Flags had a cockroach eating contest.
  8. The foot traffic in Coney Mall has probably dropped off with the placement of new rides over the years. The cars are to get you and your money back in the area.
  9. Paramount always had us thinking about what could come next with endless theming possibilities. I quickly lost interest in KI after the sale and I also didn't care for the way some of our friends on the forums was treated.
  10. I seen the Globetrotters when I was in school. They must have visited schools back in the 70's and was entertaining back then. I remember some professional Frisbee players visiting my school back then and they was just as or more entertaining than the Globetrotters.
  11. I had a friend in engineering at Disney that told me they was looking for alternatives to the monorail. That was said probably 10 years ago. I probably posted on here about it back then. They seemed to be more interested in getting rid of it 10 years ago.
  12. I would bet there are people that was injured on that SOB that don't even know it. The amount of riders over the years it operated that could have had an injury would be staggering. The kind of injury you would have got from SOB can take 10 years to fully manifest. I have talked to one of the Doctors working on these injuries and you would be surprised how easy it can happen.
  13. The people on Son of Beast probably did obey all safety instructions didn't they? Someone had a swelled head and thought they could make changes to the ride without taking into consideration what it was doing to the integrity of other parts of the ride.
  14. They should have someone at the entrance to let first timers know the proper riding technique. This thing is painful, rough, uncomfortable and requires a little core strength so that your spine isn't getting whipped. Things must have changed here as you would have set off the red alert at the park and you would have been banned from the site for saying that.
