  1. i do remember the tennis balls stuck in the chain link! I didn't realize it was there that long!
  2. I just finished the action Park documentary on HBOMax. They talked about a tank attraction that shot tennis balls and it got me thinking... Does Anybody have pictures of the "Tank Boats"? From what I remember it was an upcharge attraction where two people would sit in a boat and fire tennis balls at targets manned by guests with cannons around the perimeter. I believe it was in the area now occupied by camp snoopy. It was near what was then the turnpike ride of memory serves me correctly. I was never able to ride do it as I was a small child. I believe it operated until around
  3. Sorry for the confusion. I was more asking if there is a single rider policy because I saw some without wristbands in the fast pass lane.
  4. Announcement just came through. Orion currently down.
  5. Currently waiting for orion. Started at Diamondback splashdown at 11:50. Made it to former Firehawk photo booth at exactly 1:50. I'd say about an hour to go so a good 3 hour wait. Side note, I have seen quite a few people without wristbands entering the fast pass line. Single riders??
  6. Thanks Indy! I closed and re-opened the app and that fixed it!
  7. Hey guys, just went to the health screening in the app... I'm unable to scroll or see other "symptoms". I selected no / no and done... but did not confirm if I had completed or not. Anyone having a similar issue??
  8. I just didn't know if places like KI and CP potentially had state licensed inspectors on their payroll or not. Not sure if that's even a thing. They could not legally operate the rides without state certification so they would not open without this. This could be the reason Stricker's closed. Maybe not worth the cost of inspection in they can't open until july and have to cancel the majority of their season. Only so many weekends for private parties to be booked.
  9. I work for a travelling amusement company here in Ohio. We do church festivals, county fairs, private events ect. We have been trying to get state inspections scheduled for our rides so we can be certified and ready to go when the time comes. We have been told the Dept of Agriculture has furloughed all state inspectors until Aug 1 and no inspection will be available before that date. Can anyone confirm? How would this affect KI if they can't get the attractions inspected or certified?
  10. Id love to think Zodiac was coming back because I never got to experience it... but I really don't think that the case. Skylab was a favorite of mine, but I dont see that making a return either. My best guess is Les' Taxi (the tiques) coming back as well as a complete refurb of The Racer with RMC Topper track (which is commonly red and would look very 75'ish with new blue rails). A little paint for Vortex and maybe a flat on the flight commander pad wouldn't be a bad thing either. My dream would be to topper track one side of racer and "RMC" t
  11. i can see the marketing now... "Banshee and The Beast" two l"worlds longest" record breaking coasters.....
  12. so let me get this straight.... its okay to want a giga, or an invert, or a wing rider, or ANY NUMBER OF other things we have speculated this coaster could be in this thread, but it is NOT OKAY to want a stupid inverted wingrider that would be 100% new and unique to Kings Island, and one of a kind in the world? i'm not saying its what i want, i frankly don't care what we get. just glad we are getting something since there are parks and people around the world that would be thrilled with whatever we are about to receive... but honestly, its not out of the realm of possibilities at this point
  13. i doubt it will be "The Bat" i honestly have a hard time believing that the park would go with another "re-creation" or use of a current or former attractions name. SOB was a PR disaster. i'm not saying this coaster would be, but their luck has not been great with this type of thing. just my two cents.
  14. i know its been mentioned before... but i'm betting on an inverted wing coaster. can't wait till thursday.
