  1. I have all 3 scanned. Still working on getting them cleaned up. Hopefully I’ll get them hosted online someday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. They just want to put up some lights for the holiday season like everyone else.
  3. If one of those people you are speaking of is me. Well, I don't make wild claims, I'm not looking for attention like some others. Also, if I feel like giving this site another chance that's my prerogative. I do have some exclusive info sometimes, which if I'm asked not to share, I don't. I know there are others out there that are privy to information as well. Some even here, well until they are chased off. I'm was not being condescending with my previous post. I simply stated that a document does exist with specific information that I have in my possession but I'm currently unable to share it
  4. Yes, the B&Ms shut down due to high winds, not temps around3-3:30.
  5. I’ll call it now. A new light package for Killmart. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just got off Racer. I can confirm these survey markers. Also noticed utility markings all the way down to Monster behind the buildings. My guess, something you do with Racer? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I have them. I’m not at the liberty to share them at this point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. And the final ride’s plans I obtained show just the helixes with the inversions removed. The plans also have notations of the ride’s behavior in the each element. Great recreation gforce1994
  9. Go ride Orion and see for yourself. The original layout had dual inversions. Yes, I said Orion. Here is one of the full-size inversions built. Photo credit Kings Island Blog/Sit On It Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Great job Kyle. Nice fact filled blog. Nice to see the original POV seeing the light of day.
  11. There was a bridge over swan lake at one time, also one over the lake at the Biergarten Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Just waiting to see the reactions over the next couple of years. via GIPHY
  13. Kettle...black?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hmm, maybe I should sell my 5” piece. Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. The kits are now sold out per Kings Island’s Twitter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Smh. People are greedy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. For what track is left. Estimated 100-200. They sold out of what was completed. So most likely these will not make it to online sales. Current status of the line as of 11:37am. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I think everyone is taking this out of context. I’m saying for the people that are die hard and make it a point to collect rare items this is a drop in the bucket. They will spend the money. Your everyday enthusiast or gp are probably not going to spend the money. I’m not saying anyone is less of an enthusiast. Just like car collectors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. For real enthusiast and collectors this price is a drop in the bucket. Don’t like the price, then move along. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. I doubt it since this is a limited edition product. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Well the auction was cancelled as I figured it would be. Also a 1ft section of the tube part of the track weighs about 25lbs, so shipping would not be cheap. I recently saw a piece sell for $500, I assume it was sold. You never know what the park will do. Don’t give up hope yet. You never know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Here is a clip of how quick Racer used to enter the very short brake run. IMG_0169.mov
  23. Brumfield was a 20 year veteran of Kings Dominion's maintenance staff. Today he's an author and I highly, highly recommend his book and blog, both called "Theme Park Babylon." But Racer is even more unique as “Hill 95” has an angle of 45 degrees unlike the other copies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Give me some time and I can get this cleaned up for you.
  25. General Improvements? Restaurant? Wouldn't it be cool to eat out on a deck structure while watching Banshee go flying by? Like I said before, the park doesn't spend money unless they need to for a project. Doesn't always mean a new ride.
