  1. have they always had the street view from inside the park?
  2. Yeah I reported it for sure after the ride. Everyone around me was panicking as well. I guess they have some sort of safety device or something to re engage the locks or something at the top.
  3. I did think I was going to die once on Vortex. We were going up the lift hill when all the sudden my shoulder restraint popped up. This was in the days before seat belts. I kept pulling it down and it kept going back up! I have to admit I was scared and so were the people around me. As we got almost to the top it finally locked back down. It scared me for sure!
  4. I think I am leaning towards Cedar Point or Kennywood. However I never thought about Canada's wonderland. Only slightly over 8 hours. I don't want to sound ignorant, but I have never crossed the border into Canada. Is there much to it? Do I need a passport?
  5. I am going to call on all the experts out there to give me a little advise on what park to visit this summer? I am looking for something within an 8 hour drive. I have only visited a few other parks. Cedar Point in 1994, Kentucky Kingdom and Opryland. I would like to start going to another park like once a year. I love roller coasters and rides like Delirium but will not ride Drop Tower! LOL Anyway if you all could let me know where you recommend and why. Oh yeah, it would be just myself and my wife. Thanks!
  6. I didn't start going to KI until 1988 and I remember the pond being there.
  7. This thing makes me want to puke just watching the video, but I would love to ride it once!
  8. Anyone have any other old photos to add?
  9. Its the off season so I figured I would bring this back out for anyone who might have missed them this spring.
  10. Thanks for the questions! Below are Thursday's Top 5@5. Q: Damon Barnes - What made you decide to add midnight closings this year? I think they are great for teens and adults! A: Damon, the midnight closings were quite popular with our guests last year. It gives our guests an additional two hours for night rides on thrill rides such as The Beast, Diamondback, Vortex and Delirium. It's also a great deal for our guests that chose to visit the park after 5pm. --------------------------- Q: Tony Douglass - Is there a great possibility that by the end of this month we will know what the repl
  11. Here is a pic of The Beastie and the tunnel.
  12. So I found a few new pics and I thought I would post them here instead of starting a new thread.
  13. I guess this belongs here...oops So I was in Bob Evans Tuesday evening and a family came in and sat behind me. The father turned to his family and said I was at Kings Island Yesterday ( Monday ) when the diamond back was shut down. Daughter - What happened Father- Some guy got off the ride and had a heart attack and died right there next to the train. Daughter- Wow, they are having a bad year. Father- Yeah, you heard about that lady that got wacked in the back of the head on the SOB.. I heard they will be taking the loop out!!!

  15. I saw the crane up this morning and the wire running to the tower is up as well. All I can say is WOW!
  16. I think everyone needs to relax. I have not been a member long and I dont post often, however I have been reading the posts for quite a while. It seems to me the SOB thing has raised the tension level here about 10x. I wish everyone would just take a deep breath. I know there are a new member or two here who should just go away, but new members are how the comunity will grow. So is it really a big deal if someone does not love your favorite ride? Or why is it so upsetting when someone puts "the" in front of a rides name? If we all just don't sweat the small stuff, this will be a much more laid
  17. Does anyone know why some of the time the pics work and some of the time they are red X's?
  18. Here is what they looked like if I remember correctly
  19. I figured you would of had the answer, thanks!
