    If CF holds true to past actions, then they will salvage any parts they will need to service Nighthawk at Carowinds and scrap the remaining part of the coaster. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fastlane at Winterfest 2018?

    I would say they probably used the container instance for FOF on this page that is used for the main website. Saves from having to make a whole new instance. **edit** Looks like thats what happened. It could be on purpose or just an over site in coding the the Winterfest page.

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    This is just something I quickly threw together in ps. I used Fury 325 as a filler. It is pretty much to scale here. The coaster could be configured any which way, but I think would open the area up. Also note I closed of the X-Base “tunnel” to allow Racer to be restored to the original track configuration. I miss that airtime at the brake run. Again, this is just an idea. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Coney Mall Concept 2022

    To note, the earlier PTC trains were not designed to run backwards, the later versions had the ability to run backwards from the factory. Let's hear it from Mike himself...

    Coney Mall Concept 2022

    The current trains on Racer were never designed to run backwards, that is why they will not be turned around again due to recommendations by PTC, but I do know of a set of compatible trains that are currently orphaned that can run backwards. BTW, did someone say gondolas? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Can anyone identify this building?

    I think this should clear it up for you. Kings Island owns the land all the way down to the river. I would highly advise not to fly a drone over their property.

    KI wins Golden Ticket Award for Best Kids' Area again

    Things may change next year. I think Dollywood will give KI a run starting next year with the addition of Wildwood Grove.

    Pretty Cool. I’m curious on the source of the footage which appears to be drone footage over Kings Island property. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Realistic Kings Island Concept Art

    Can we rename this thread “Realistic Kings Island Concept Art”? I like your idea. It would be nice if they showed some love to the train next instead of treating it as a form of transportation to Soak City. Maybe I just have a higher expectation since I grew up with so much more in that area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just for fun: FINAL 2019 announcement predictions

    No one said everything was announced for 2019, then again no one said there was more to announce. Just something to think about.

    New Change To Fright Lane

    Simple business practices. Redistribution happens all the time in the corporate world. I guarantee you they were watching daily numbers from Haunt last year and looking for what they could cut. I’m sure they came to the conclusion that they could reinvest the money spent to run skeleton key and get a much bigger return on a Winterfest program. Winterfest was a smash last year, Haunt has aged. Get the profits while Winterfest is still new. I’m not saying that what is happening, but I’ve worked enough years in the corporate world to know how they work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Change To Fright Lane

    I’m sure some Haunt items will continue to be cut in order to allow more room in the budget for Winterfest. I’d rather the park split the allotted budget space outside of the regular operating season between these events. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ask Kings Island a Question

    The black you noticed on DB’s old seats was not dirt, it was the core material showing through. The orange coating on the seats started to wear off due to sweat, rain, and other factors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
