  • Interests
    I am a resident of Cincinnati, about 40 minutes from Kings Island, which, I try to visit 5-10 times a year. Big fan of coasters and amusement parks in general. I currently attend the University of Cincinnati seeking a degree in psychology. I was a 9 year member of the Bearcat Bands playing alto and tenor saxophone and I still try to play with the UC Community Band and other groups. I'm a big time music nut. I'm a bit of a sports fan, I get into most movies, and little bits of about everything. I am now a current employee at the Delhi Township Skyline.

    Vortex Gets a New Paint Job

    Vortex would look pretty awesome in the colors of Corkscrew at Michigan's Adventure....

    Future changes to the shed?

    Dolphins on the projectors (in rotation with snakes, bats and trees) would be kinda hilarious.

    Outpost 5 symbols popping up...

    Most Cedar Fair parks, including Kings Island, will normally make this kind of a big announcement in August, aka, coaster enthusiast Christmas.

    Fun fact- one of the elephant handlers at the Cincinnati Zoo is a UC Band alumni!

    IAAPA 2018

    That newer GCI MF car looks sweet. Looks a bit more comfy and I love the low slung front for an open air feel.

    Clearing up rumors of "Steel Beast"

    Even without the disclaimer in the description about it being a concept, the dialogue in the video should have been a dead give away that it wasn't an actual announcement.
  9. Maybe we'll get lucky and Herschend will swoop in at the last second and steal the Busch parks away from FUN and SIX. One can dream...

    But you have to have a few bigger hills to burn off the momentum of a multi-ton train going 90+ mph. You don't want too much work on the brake runs. A few tall overbanks and maybe a 200 ft camelback would be nice. The idea behind most of the gigas (sans Steel Dragon 2000) has been blending taller elements with elements that showcase their speed.
  11. The idea of SIX owning the Busch Gardens parks depresses me.

    Why use the DA land when you got less tree clearing to do when you go towards Banshee and have access to the rest of the SOB plot?

    I also think the layout could reach as far as Bat's lift, maybe even further.
  14. I wonder if the perpetually planned European Paramount Park spawned from these ideas. It also does seem odd that Miami doesn't have a major theme park nearby.

    The layout I predict is starting in X-Base, heading behind the Flight of Fear building (possibly hopping over it on the return run), and having most of its layout behind Banshee since it's already cleared. That route would lead to the least tree clearing as well. The terrain should serve to make the drop larger than the lift.
