  1. last hill in Adventure Express---the stone men are animated again.....(my friend posted a video of their trip on AE) when I was there in May they didn't work...hmm.
  2. obviously now we have something very similar---Diamondback....but Behemoth is an awesome ride! I encourage everyone to head up to Toronto and ride it! Yes they do I rode the one at Canada's Wonderland this past year. While it is a fun ride it does take long to load it. The park also has a stand up version of Ski-Lab. I do a trip report later on with pictures. This is one of the 3 flats I rode at Canada's Wonderland....I really liked it. I'm not one for these types of flats but it was fun!
  3. Italian Job effects: Splashdown, Fog, Water (where the helicopter is) The School of Rock show The general feel of the park...there's just something different when I go in there now.
  4. hey man, glad to hear that your second trip was a lot better and I'm glad that you gave KI another chance.

    New Coaster?

    I do like the idea of an X-Base area....would like to see some ideas for how it'd work. I'm not sure a TTD would work for KI.
  6. Great comment! Weird about the voicemail though. But rest assured that there is no virus on the site. It's perfectly safe to leave a voicemail. EDIT: Dang Jordan you bet me! I figured..but I tried to open it and all that showed up was an ad...so Idk if my anti-virus only let that come through...hmm... but yea no problem guys!
  7. Hey guys I was planning on leaving you a voice mail but I couldn't get to the website due to my anti-virus saying 'hey don't go there'. But anyway... As for the monorail at Jungle Jims: To my knowledge there are 6 actual vehicles. You are right though, there is 1 for show with the silouttes in the windows and the rest are for transportation. I just did some research and the monorail is open, runnin only 1 vehicle for operation. I believe they are not charging anyone to ride the monorail. If anyone finds anymore information I'd be glad to hear any. -Good episode!
  8. So, Kings Island should hire 4-5 people to patrol a queue? That is what I've gotten from your posts. In order for Kings Island to completely take care of this problem (which most likely will never happen), they'll have to hire 4-5 people to walk the queues of every single ride. Agreed, if you're going to pay to get into the park, shouldn't you stay in the park for more than an hour or two? I agree KI Man. Tell the people line jumping no...stand up dude. Anytime you run to Guest Relations as soon as you get jumped in line, the thing is that the people jumping you are 1) either already on the ride by the time you get there 2) already have been on the ride and now in line for another ride. Stay in line tell the ride ops with another person in the line that the people in front of you jumped in line. 1 word--agreed
  9. I know, I love the chaser lights on Vortex, could you see them being added to Diamondback? Apparently I missed the service lights.
  10. I didn't see any on May 2nd...so if there are they must have just been added recently.
  11. So as I was looking through some of my pictures at Canada's Wonderland I looked at a picture I had of Behemoth. On the lift hill there were lights trailing the track until the crest. Those are the only lights on the ride except for in the station and in the queue. Do you think Kings Island's Diamondback should have these lights?
  12. At one point, there used to be a 'pond' like thing after the train leaves the station and goes around the curves to get to the lift hill. I saw a picture of it, I'll be lookin for it and post it once I find it. haha kids are getting to caught up over things these days.... I agree...gotta love what parents feed their children. *Cough* 'Oh no little Billy, hurry up go wash your hands, if not you could get swine flu!' People get way too excited over that stuff
  13. That looks pretty awesome! I'd rather have a top spin like this outside than what the Crypt is now... it'd be sweet to put this over in Coney Mall where the open area is. Terpy, I absolutely love your comments. But yea I haven't rode the Crypt yet this year...I wasn't a big TRTR fan...I'm not a fan of hanging upside down for a period of time. But I'll check out the Crypt when I head back there.
  14. I've known Rachel for about two years now, we've taken many adventrues where pictures would be taken...that's the classic Rachel! Glad you had a good time, I wish I could be there this weekend.
  15. In line for the Carousel I heard "Daddy, what's the swine flu." "I'm not going to explain it now, here have some hand sanitizer."
  16. So Kings Island today was a blast!! I got to the park a little after 10, it seemed like all I could see was thousands of annoyinge teenagers with their schools for Music In The Parks day....wow...I wanted to slap a few of them not even being in the park for very long. We obviously got stopped by the people in front of the fountains to get our picture taken! Woohoo! As we completed that whole process we headed toward Vortex!! We got a little side-tracked and had a walk on to Adventure Express...it was a bit boring. It was a complete walk-on...sat in the very front and man was it smooth! The fresh paint looks really good! We got off and went to FoF and that was pretty much a walk-on..a wait of maybe 5 minutes. However I was creeped out by this kid staring at me as I was in the train waiting to be shot off. The ride was so much fun, I forgot about how crazy it was inside the "fishbowl". We headed toward Firehawk right afterwards...a wait of about 15 minutes. We got sent to the yellow train and were about in the middle of the train. Very smooth ride...I forgot about the barrel rolls at the end of the ride they rocked! We then grabbed a quick bite to eat, went to The Beast!!! I was really excited to see how much nicer it rode. The helix's were great...I didn't want to kill any girls in the tunnles for screaming. The ride is generally about a 4 minute 50 second ride...it seemed like it lasted longer than that and I loved it. We then headed to Diamondback!!!!!! We waited a max time of about 20 minutes...once we got seated we had a blast! We sat in the middle of the train, I sat on the far right side. The first hill was amazing! I loved not really sitting on the seat throughout the ride because of the airtime! The other hills were great! I couldn't get over how low DB goes and how close it is to the train tracks. The splash down part was cool, however I didn't really know we hit any water (obviously I knew about it but on the ride I didn't) until I felt a little mist. I was really really impressed with DB. On ride photos were great! The DB trading post was awesome as well. We then wanted to grab a little snack...so we thought about stopping in the restaurant formerly known as Wings...I can't remember what it's new name is...oops. Unfortunately we didn't eat there because we're poor college students and can't afford $17 per person for a meal. So we grabbed some fries and headed toward SoB. SoB was down so we went on Flight Deck. It was packed since SoB was down. In the lines I was a bit disappointed because of the whole area under the platform was sitting idle. The ride was great! I love swinging around the curves! At this point we decided to go on The Racers and they were fun, we rode the blue train and won! Wish it would have went backwards though. Then we went back to DB. This time the three of us decided to do the single rider line....again another walk-on...and it was a blast. We then headed to our Picnic Lunch and it was good...I was disappointed when we didn't have Chicken Tenders but loved the selection anyway. Then we headed around the park to just walk for a bit. Went to SoB...wow was it rough! The lift hill always makes me laugh because it's sooo loud! We then headed toward DB again, unfortunately at this point it wasn't running because the whole train getting stuck in the back. So we decided to wait for about an hour or so. It got very frustrating because of the Ride Ops and other Staff kept telling us it'd be worth our time to go ride other rides...we sat there for a while and then went to the stores. Then we saw the trains of DB being tested...so we headed over that way and rode in the single rider line again and it was amazing in the dark! I love the feel of DB at night! Then we headed home. It was a great day at KI!!!
  17. Diamondback was open again later in the evening, it was a lot of fun in the evening! However, the ride ops and other ride workers were really annoying as they kept coming to me and others in the line saying that it was going to be a major delay and to go find another ride....more details in my trip report.
  18. Looks Like a lot of fun! Here's mine! I have no clue who these girls are...yay single rider line!!!
  19. Thanks Rachel! You did get me sucked in I will of course check out the Cortex...is that a new ride? hehe! Nah Vortex is one of my favorites so I'll be riding that! Anyone know how the SoB is this year? What about FoF and Firehawk?
  20. Hey, I'm headed to KI on Saturday, I think it's also Music in The Parks day....should I be worried? I'm planning on being there from 10-close....unfortunately I do not have a gold pass and I'm coming with my school. What ride should I hit up first? I'm planning on hitting DB after I ride a few rides. What are the must rides this season? Thanks for your help!
  21. Hey, I'm headed to KI on Saturday for my first time this season. When should I head to DB? Should I go in the morning or midday? I of course will ride it at night. Let me know what ya think!
  22. Dude that sucks When exactly was the picture taken? Sometimes with pictures being sent over the internet it takes a little while for them to be sent. I'm guessing with DBack there is a high volume of pictures being sent to emails and that'd take them quite some time to get to all of the addresses. I'd guess it'd be in your email by tonight at the latest, hopefully.
