    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.

    The last time the river was this high was 1997 and I think this year's flood surpassed that. I drive by it all the time, and I'm hearing one of the major roads that goes downtown (US 50) is flooding in spots. I've never seen that before. We're in good googly moogly territory now.

    ^Now 100% natural.

    With the quality of KI's food department, let's not try steak.
  4. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Might I remind you of issues with Intamin's in the past, which include but aren't limited to- - Broken cables and chains - Massive redesigns of large track sections - Rides that are rare to open on time - Log flumes disengaging lifts, falling backwards and capsizing - Rider ejections And after all that, they have the audacity and nerve to say that they are an acceptable part of the industry and have little to show of any improvements with their installments overseas, nor have they had any innovations lately. B&M doesn't stoop that low. Show me something B&M has done that comes close to that list that wasn't human error. I'll wait (I'll save you the time, there aren't any). And say what you want about their ride quality in terms of experiences, but they have a second to none safety record. I'd rather have that than an under-designed ride, whether it'd be the ride experience or safety equipment.
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    To all you guys wanting Intamins- are their designs really worth the hassle to the park that they bring? Many of us have posted time and time again the problems that come with Intamins, why do you look past that in terms of what direction you think the park will actually go if they go for a giga? You all know it'll be a B&M. I'd put money on it.
  6. ^Is there another reason other than an expired contract that made KI take out the Dinos? Your words make me think there's more to it. We all knew from day 1 it wasn't a permanent thing unless I missed something, right?

    Somewhere, Terpy is cringing at all the free basketballs likely being distributed at this event.

    In regards to that picture- I live about as close and as high up from the Ohio River as Kings Island is to the Little Miami River, and I get mass fog of the Ohio all the time this time of year.
  9. ^It appeared a year or 2 after KI's did and I imagine had a similar contract, so I'd put a lot of confidence in that rumor. They should be exiting the other CF parks within the next 2 years or so.
  10. Things that KI can improve on

    Just to prove it had trims since day 1- here is a POV from 1979 (as evidenced by the lack of tunnel on the helix). The skid brake trims are all in the same places as the magnetic ones (sans the helix but I imagine they added them shortly thereafter, I believe they were added after the park staff and design crew took it for a test ride).
  11. I'm shoehorning this trip in here, which is, me likely going on a trip with UC to their NCAA tournament site since they look like they'll be a high seed, which, lets the committee keep them close to home. I know what I'm doing if they go to Pittsburgh, but I could use some hotel suggestions if they end up in Nashville. I hope they don't go to Detroit though...
  12. I also didn't realize how thin the single rail was going to be. That should be a weird and possibly unnerving aspect, especially with all those insane elements.
  13. The Beast Roughness/jerking

    If you have to go to a wheel seat, the front of the car are slightly better than the back.
  14. They look slightly cramped as well, or at least a bit claustrophobic.
