  1. Racer Radio has been awesome. The rest of the park needs fixed. Bring back the I Street music and for GOD sake get rid of the bluegrass version songs in Rivertown, or at least switch them out. LOL
  2. You do realize the only original building at the gate is the main building itself. The others were adding years later. I could see the ticket buildings getting razed and the front being redesigned but keeping the original front building itself. It would very easy for them to put a front gate coaster in if they chose.
  3. I see a change to Haunt coming. After having Fall Fest, I can see them toning down Haunt a little. Maybe balance it out for everyone and not just catering to teens. It's not about attendance, it's about profit. Filling the place with a bunch of teen season pass holders doesn't generate the same income of non passholders and families.
  4. I'm sure glad everyone here is qualified to run an amusement park.
  5. They used Zephyr's water dummies which do not have legs only nubs, So some of them came loose and went flying out on the first drop. So basically, maint dept took a shortcut which caused the PR dept a headache.
  6. Ugh, I despise GP. There was no accident. Just some water dummies. geez
  7. It wouldn't be a work trip since Mystic Timbers is long completed. ;)
  8. Very interesting!! Hmm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Park is slammed today. 11:20 and the lot is half full already with a line of traffic down Kings Island Drive. Not a good day to be here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes, the star was moved to KI for Halley's Comet. Also, if you would like more info about the Shooting Star, I would suggest reaching out to Alfred Freeman on Facebook. He knows a lot about the coaster. He also worked on some including the Screechin' Eagle at Americana.
  11. It was a derailment. The wheel is clearly above the track. The whole train doesn't have to come off to be a derailment.
  12. I would love to see a large immersive dark ride for the Timberwolf site.
  13. "Strange things are afoot at the Circle K"
  14. ALERT ALERT FREESTYLE IS OPEN!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. You might want to look above the last photo Also, the grass did not grow until well after Orion was completed.
  16. Best line from that blog "Don’t assume every time you see me out in the park that a tweetup is about to happen."
  17. Did you not read my post? The area was graded. There are no remnants of Firehawk. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. The dispatch bells on all the wood coasters. I really miss those. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. It could be an elevated flat ride, something that would require a foundation that had to handle high stress . I highly doubt a new coaster. or maybe for a new train bridge to allow the train to go around the park??? That would be nice.
  20. Just an observation from riding Orion multiple times this year. It appears there may have been some core samplings done on the other side of Orion's fence. What I see are small round spots in the grass that appear to be filled in with gravel. These spots aappear to be fresh. The photos don't really show as clearly as the view from Orion, but you can't take pictures from rides. LOL Before people say "thats from Firehawk", here is a photo that will show you that the land was graded during Orion's construction so they are clearly new "holes"Just wondering what could be in store for the future??
  21. It was not an option. They are being sent out to everyone.
  22. I went exploring earlier this year. I was able to find the footers for the old Motordrome and marked them in Google maps. I also found some gas lines fro either old lamps from the motordrome. I may have also recovered some riding steel from the coaster. The parts where the coaster and motordrome were not filled in like the rest of the park in the 1970’s.
  23. This ride is only a month old. [emoji2357] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
