    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.

  1. Is SV the only ride that they're taking this approach with?
  2. In my case, all my ICE numbers are on my phone and my health can take a nose dive in the blink of an eye on a whim.
  3. Six Flags Great Adventure uses this policy for El Toro, Kingda Ka, and Joker. The ops at the line entrance would have you both show your pockets to them and if you have cargo shorts, have you pat yourself down. They were actually quite effective in spotting phones, I have to admit. SIX does $1 lockers near all those rides as well.

    Park closes at 5:00 today (7/20/18)

    Just to add to that- the entire tri-state area (pretty much the I-275 loop and a couple counties outside that) is under a tornado watch until 9 pm and a flash flood watch until midnight.

    KI lets slip plans for 2019 exist on IG today?

    ^If memory serves, KD closed theirs down for that conversion right before Cedar Fair purchased the Paramount Parks, then they returned it to running as it has been originally. I also recall a rumor that Paramount was in the works of doing a ride rotation program similar to what SIX did that started with Stealth moving to Carowinds and included either KD's or KI's Flight of Fear and Hypersonic XLC.
  6. I may luck out with crowds the day I go- there's a decent chance of rain the day I'm going, but not all day.
  7. Do SV lines adhere to any sort of pattern where it may get slightly shorter lines during certain parts of the day or is it always long with it being the new coaster?
  8. Is this S&S trying to bring the ArrowBATic concept to life on steroids? I had no idea S&S was ever involved with something like this with their focus on their 4Ds and variants thereof. Also, I consider UPitt to be the bigger evil in Pittsburgh.
  9. So the only ride review I'll be doing is Steel Vengeance for my venture to CP. I also realized in writing all those that its hard to come up with different words to use when describing 30+ coasters in such a short amount of time. I'll have to brush up on my vocabulary.
  10. I mean, what could possibly go wrong with that proceedure?

    Banshee gift shop converted to arcade

    I thought it was a bit ill conceived to add it at the bottom of the staircase like they did below the station. At least have it after a longer path so the people thin out a bit before entering. Its one of the worst bottleneck points in the park, especially with Banshee's mass capacity.

    If KI gets a mouse, hopefully they operate it with continuous motion instead of the stacked cars that CF is known for.

    I have to say this season, Racer is running the best it has been in years. It also constantly leads the park in rider count, so its still doing something right even though the GP isn't exactly thrilled with it anymore. If it had the trims taken off on the turn arounds, it'd be an airtime monster on the return run. I've encountered bits bordering on ejector air on it this season. Now if we could only get the park to repaint it and get the trains to sync better on the lift hills.

    Adventure Express History

    I've ridden quite a few mine train style coasters from Arrow and Vekoma, and I consider Adventure Express to be the best one I've ridden, even over BTMR at Disney.
  15. Remember last August when (almost) all the CF parks did announcements on the same day (including CP and KBF which never happened before then) and KI was the elephant park in the room that didn't make any? Even the smaller parks like Dorney and MIA announced their Pre-K plan that day. KI easily could have done the Coney BBQ announcement then. TBH, I didn't feel they were that excited for this season, especially in their under the radar announcement of Coney BBQ, and that showed in the GP reactions. I know a lot of season pass holders that skipped this season.
