  1. There is a street sweeper but what about the trash that gets blown into the grass areas? When I worked at Kl we would have someone walk with a picker and bucket pretty much the entire perimeter of the parking lot just for trash that got blow into the grass areas. Could and did in numerous occasion take 4+ hours to get it all. Haunt was the worst for that. Wind was up and trash flew everywhere. Also the street sweeper could not pick up big items like McDonalds/Wendy’s bags. We had to have someone drive around on a golf cart and get those items cleaned up. You would be surprised at some of the stuff that people left in the parking lot for”trash”.
  2. People in this forum were trashing the ride when the blue prints leaked.
  3. Steel curtain is open right now.
  4. Another milestone to hit.
  5. They taped over things on the Banshee teaser posters as well.
  6. Vekoma has actually made some awesome looking rides in recent years. Check out the Lech coaster. Looks sweet. Also vekoma looks to be the manufacturer of choice for Disney at this point. Obviously we know that KI is getting a B&M but vekoma has really turned around.
  7. Bathroom floors would be deep cleaned and pressure washed on a rotating schedule every morning before the park would open as well. At least that was the case when I worked there about 6 years ago.
  8. Building also is or was the park services warehouse when I worked there.
  9. Reading that this copperhead strike coaster at carowinds from Mack was expensive. Who much did it cost? I watched the POV and was pretty underwhelmed.
  10. I don’t think there is a chance that Kings Island gets another coaster that quickly after this Giga is built. 2025 seems much more likely when the next coaster would come than 2022, to me at least. There was a 5 year gap between Diamondback and Banshee. Guest have been/ are spoiled in the fact that 3 major coasters will be installed in the last 6 years. How many other parks have done that? I can only think of a few.
  11. Huh? Why did the supposed height change in the last couple days? Seems like even with the blueprints no one knows what the final height will be.
  12. Even though there are complete blue prints for this new ride, I think it is pretty interesting that no one knows the length, no one knows the height, no one knows the speed, no one knows the angle of descent. Sure people might be close but no one knows exactly. Should make for an exciting announcement.
  13. RMC 400+ is coming to some park in the next 5 years. Book it. https://youtu.be/0_NXIRtGMBc Go to the 4 minute mark.
  14. I think there are a couple reasons that there are no teasers yet. The construction area is sort of off the beaten path. Also they are still not “completely open” yet, there are shows that have not started, the fountains are said to not be completely operational. They still have these things to work on/promote for 2019. I would say teasers go up before June, still have a week and a half, and footings start being poured the first week of June. Just my perspective.
