  1. I just came across this thread. That is an amazing piece!! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Had to look back at my pics! Mystic Timbers, July 23, 2019 2020 was the first season I've missed since 2003.
  3. I've always thought it would be a neat to have a thread where you share your first-ever post on KIC. Some will definitely go further back in time than others. I have to say, I have two college degrees, but I think I have learned more about the world from being on this site. I look back through some of my older posts and it's definitely some face palm material. Most of all, through good times, and some not so good times, I've always appreciated to have someplace to go where I can just talk and read about my "Fun" place. From this topic
  4. For me, hands down, is the original Antique Cars. Partly because of the ride itself, but also due to its proximity to the Eiffel Tower and International Street. The Tower is the hub of the whole park - and has definitely earned "iconic" status - and I feel that that area around it should reflect that. The Italian Job, and now BLSC, would have been fantastic in Action Zone, and would still fit perfectly to this day.
  5. This is the first season I've missed since '03, and I'm really sad that there's no Winterfest. If they light up the Tower, I may make the three hour round trip just to drive by and see it.
  6. Wow, that was a blast from the past. I rode it the first time in May of 2000, and the last time was during Haunt 2007. It was roughness on a whole other level, for sure. I still can't believe that massive structure was built, and is completely gone already.
  7. That is a truly fascinating story. Love reading that kind of stuff. Also, just as fascinating, if not more, I've always wanted to see the land that KI is sitting on before it was built. I had no idea there were satellite photos on ODOT!!! Thanks @TombraiderTy!! Usually I'm only thinking about getting home once I'm at that end of the parking lot, but a few years ago, I got out and took a few pics (2015):
  8. This. I think Vortex was a much more integral part of Kings Island than the average coaster that gets removed. I would put it along the lines of The Beast and the Eiffel Tower. I believe Cedar Fair has finally discovered the true value of nostalgia (KMAA, Winterfest, and I would argue MT). I will actually be surprised if whatever takes Vortex' spot won't be called "Vortex", or have that as part of its name.
