We have done a forum update that changed and added a lotĀ of new and exciting features. During this update, we had to remove and rebuild the KICentral themes "Bright" and "Dark." Therefore your theme selection has been reset and you will need to reselect your theme again.

  1. What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    ^ I highly doubt they would install the one in the lower right of the video thumbnail in the old Flight Commander spot. I could see the GP thinking that FC was back.
  2. What could 2018 bring KI

    That's funny. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Beast cars

    I would be all for Millennium flyers on The Beast as long as they would work without modifying the track, but PTC did unveil an individual car train (PTC-360) a could of years ago at IAAPA. I'm not sure if anyone is using them. I think an individual car train would relieve a ton of stress off the track and allow for faster speeds without the wear.

  5. What could 2018 bring KI

    The Bat has been closed since Saturday due to mechanical issues. It will be back up when it is repaired. It's not going anywhere.
  6. What could 2018 bring KI

    I will paraphrase O'Terpy "Those who know don't speak. Those who speak, more times than not, don't know"
  7. Haunt 2017

    I actually applied to work Haunt this year. Never worked at KI, so I figured it was time to get a taste. I may try for some part time work at Winterfest as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. The first Rocky Mountain Construction "Raptor" track roller coaster has been announced for Six Flags Fiesta Texas. "Wonder Woman will climb a 113-foot hill, drop about 100 feet straight down at 90-degrees, and hit a top speed of 52 mph. It will include overbanked turns and the free-floating sensation known as airtime. Among its three inversions will be a "180-degree stall," in which the train will roll halfway over and suspend riders for a few agonizing moments before it unrolls and returns them right-side-up."

  10. Kings Island Historians?

    I've never heard of this happening in all the years I've been going to Kings Island. No one I know has heard of this incident, and there is no substantial evidence of it ever happening. Paraphrasing BoddaH1994 above, I think you are confusing it with another park. Here is a list of Arrow hydroflumes that were around during that time and in the region. 1973- Coal Cracker- Hersheypark 1973- Kenton Keelboat Canal- KI 1975- Riptide-- SFGADV 1976- Yankee Clipper- SFGAM 1982- White Water Landing- CP
  11. What Kings Island Meant Growing Up For Me

    Thanks KingsMill79. I vaguely remember a promotion with cars. I was 4 in '79. I think Shaggy or Don may have a better recollection of the promotion. The earliest promotion I can specifically remember would be the Q102 Mello Yello t-shirts that were given away at the park in the early 80's. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It was announced at Coasterstock that this will be a large Christmas Tree. There will be another one where the old tram turn around was. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
