  1. The tweet linked in the original post has now been deleted. Whatever that means...
  2. It looks like Kentucky Kingdom is planning an enthusiast event for May 31st. I’m planning to see if more details are released before purchasing, but it is definitely on my radar!
  3. Sad to see. This park was always on my radar but I never made a trip. My wife and I had plans to go for the first time in July of this year.
  4. 1. The Voyage 2. Steel Vengeance 3. Maverick 4. Fury 325 5. Millennium Force 6. Top Thrill Dragster 7. Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts 8. Storm Chaser 9. The Legend 10. Revenge of the Mummy I have been on 75 coasters in total, so my sample size is not huge. My highest KI coaster is Mystic Timbers at 12, but I am expecting Orion to change that in a few months.
  5. Shared this one on my socials... RIP Vortex.
  6. I rode Raptor last night and had an incredible experience. Smooth, easy ride. I don’t understand how a ride that is 25 years old is so much smoother to ride than Banshee. Maybe it’s because the inversions are tighter and less drawn-out. But Banshee was rattling to an almost unpleasant level last weekend on all three of my laps. There were constant vibrations. Last night, Raptor gave me the best lap that I can ever remember on that ride. I don’t want to sound whiny, but there was a stark difference between experiences. Hopefully they can get Banshee figured out.
  7. I’ve been most impressed with Field of Screams so far this year.
  8. It’s strange to me that Kings Island broke the news at 5:00am on a Friday. It’s feels like they are trying to avoid a news cycle and not say much about it. Very different from Firehawk’s removal announcement IIRC... maybe because they knew we would love the short term replacement for Firehawk and aren’t sure about Vortex’s replacement. Either way, I will miss this ride. The first drop is one of the few that still “gets my stomach.” I imagine that won’t be an issue with the addition of Orion. This is a tough one for us to see go for so many reasons. RIP Vortex.
  9. The fountains at KMAA are not working today. Has this been going on for a while? I haven’t been to the park in several weeks, but they were functioning last time I was here. Hopefully the beautiful area of our brand new ride isn’t already falling apart.
  10. Way more people than I expected today with how hot it is. I’ll be picking my rides strategically.
  11. Average announcement video TBH. Can't wait to ride!
  12. Maybe I’m snobby about my platinum pass, but I selfishly don’t like this option at Cedar Point. Crowds will increase, especially at Cedar Point Shores. Passholder nights will be packed. That being said, this is a great move for the park. They will sell a ton of gold passes and people will use them.
  13. Millennium Force, Fury 325, and Banshee are the three that always come to mind for me. I’m excited to see what we have coming for Project X.
  14. TTD has been down for several days now, and if Intamin is involved it must be abnormal maintenance. Anybody know what is going on?
  15. I was there in February, which is a significantly less busy time to be at Universal. Over the course of the two days, we were able to do everything at Universal Studios and IoA and were able to do our favorites twice. We were able to do this at a leisurely pace without the express ticket. This was also before Hagrid's opened. If you have one day, and it is August, I would guess that you could enjoy all of Harry Potter and maybe a few other attractions along the way. It would be worth every cent. Hope this helps!
