  1. The park is indeed getting new shows this year, but unless they are doing casting differently for it, Illuminate isn't one of them.
  2. Have you seen the proposed model for the 12-inversion coaster, though? It truly does look incredible. (And I'm not really a fan of inversions...just for the sake of going upside down.)
  3. I'm auditioning to be a show performer this year. Unfortunately, the competition is outrageous.
  4. I would say one of the biggest reasons for going with Mondial was capacity (WindSeeker- 64 riders, Starflyer- 24).
  5. So it's operating at about 11% more downtime than usual, then?
  6. I would like to echo these sentiments and add that I think it's GREAT how the park/crew is actually putting the extra effort into RACING trains on The Racer! It completely changes the ride--for the better--and everyone I've talked to who has ridden it this season agrees.
  7. I'll support Jaspers statement. With the exception of WindSeeker, I didn't see a single ride "down" all day and all the coasters were running extremely well.
  8. I just got back home after a 3+ hour long drive from Kings Island. Five of my friends and I decided to head up for opening day and we had an awesome time despite the far-less-than-awesome weather. With the exception of WindSeeker, which didn't run at all (or look like it would be ready to open next weekend---but what do I know), just like it hasn't run the past three visits I've had since last June, everything was running extremely well. HOWEVER, the shocker of the day was definitely The Beast. I hesitate to use the term "butter" because I feel like it might cause me to lose credibility, but
  9. Made sure to eat at 1:30 today to catch the public debut of the show. My five (18 year old) friends and I really enjoyed it. The songs are great and very recognizable, there is a ton of energy, and the performers are unbelievebly talented. I'll definitely make a point to watch it again next time I'm at the park.
  10. Let's just hope new Cedar Fair President = new rain policy!
  11. If you read the original post you'll see that isn't the case. (Unless her husband is unable to differentiate between a very small steel coaster and a larger wooden coaster in pictures.)
  12. How do opening day crowds usually compare to the following few Saturdays? The last early-season Saturday visit I had was the weekend after Diamondback opened...so I'm not sure if that's a great crowd guage.
  13. I'll be crushed if Kings Island removes The Crypt. I love indoor rides, and this is by far the park's most unique flat.
  14. It was fairly rough today, too...but not unbearable by any means. Flight of Fear, on the other hand? THAT was rough.
  15. I am a huge fan of The Crypt...and I always will be. I think the improvements look great, and I'm sure I'll take multiple cycles on the ride tomorrow...even though the latest program truly does, well, suck. What is the music that plays while the ride is going?
