  1. Intamin inverted coaster 178 foot drop into a tunnel 1 loop 1 diving loop 1 inclined loop 2 Zero G role 1 Immelmann loop 2 low speed Heartline rolls onto final brake run. 3,880 Feet long.
  2. Who said it has to be Unique? As long as its new and shiny it will get peoples attention. I would think that it should be considering it is replacing a very high profile ride that was itself very unique even if it was a failure. I dont think it needs to be unique though, I think we need a new coaster with some loops. Kings Island has only added one coaster that has had multiple loops in the last 13 years and that was Firehawk.
  3. Who said it has to be Unique? As long as its new and shiny it will get peoples attention.
  4. Don't forget about Invertigo.
  5. New red paver in Action Zone? They could be wanting to renovate Action Zone instead of re theming it. Might even be why they removed the water tower.
  6. Why not add $50 to the admission and everyone get the Fast Pass?
  7. Maybe they will be closing Action Theater all together and the queue for WindSeeker will start next to Vortex and connect to WindSeeker from behind.
  8. The spot where the train entered the station is blocked by plywood and a fence. Couldn't see the side of the station where the trains left. Thanks. I had a crazy theory that they were hiding a new train for testing in there, but I really doubt it
  9. Was there an opining in the wall for were the train exits the stations like the one were the train enters the station?
  10. I was wondering if anyone has ridden a Huss Topple Tower? They look cool, but I was wondering if there anything special.
  11. I was at the park yesterday and noticed more of these covers to the right of the best queue and one other next to the queue for Backlot Stunt Coaster. I also noticed that they are not sewer vents they are plastic covers covering footers some of the covers are easy to move up a little and others I was able to take off the footers all the way. I also noticed that most of the footers are old but there were a Couple footers that i have never seen before and looked new so Kings Island might be adding new items to some of the queues.
  12. I was at the park yesterday and Diamondbacks line was full.
  13. If Cedar Fair closes California's great America Kings Island should get the flying eagles and put it in Coney Island and their Enterprise for X-Base.
  14. I found this on Google and thought it was interesting http://www.cleveland.com/datacentral/index.ssf/2010/05/theme_park_rankings_kings_isla.html
  15. Oops I thought that was Sundays.
  16. Below are the questions selected for Monday's 5@5 mailbag: Lisa Miller Maynard – We bought the bucket of cotton candy where you can get refilled for $1.99, is it like the cups you can bring on your next visit to the park and get refilled for the refill price? We were there Saturday, and my 3 year twins loved Planet Snoopy! Lisa, your cotton candy bucket is good for refills for just $1.99 all season long. A popcorn bucket is also new this year. Great to hear your twins had a great time in Planet Snoopy. Did they meet Snoopy? ------------------------------ Travis Nuss – Why are you closed
  17. Fresh pain? Oh, my. Terpy, who keeps thinking of waterparks and wedgies after that particular line... My fault I meant paint
  18. If we are not getting a new ride in 2011 why would they go ahead and add starlight experience. If there was nothing planed for 2011 I would think that they would add starlight experience next year and use it as a new attraction on there ad campaign. So I think we are getting a some new water slides and fresh pain in Boomerang Bay for 2011.
  19. Our answers to your questions for Friday's 5@5 Mailbag: Stan Byme - Not counting the arcade games, which Coney Mall game seems to be the most popular? I like these kinds of questions. I don’t know the answers so I have to dig a bit…your answer is: 3pt Challenge. Followed by Bank-a-Ball. ------------------------------ Nick Honea - Why are the coasters listed under Thrill Rides (Family Rides for AE and BLSC; Planet Snoopy for Woodstock Express, FAAC, Great Pumpkin Coaster, and Surf Dog) and not a page called "Roller Coasters" like Cedar Point and Carowinds? It’s a park-to-park thing. We fe
  20. Here are some answers for Friday's 5@5 mailbag: Bruce E Knolle Jr - You said before that we would be able to post our own pictures of rides and things to the new KI website and you guys might use them if you liked them. I love taking pictures of the rides at KI, when and where can I submit all my pictures? We would absolutely welcome your photos. I’d be happy to check them out and if they work for the site I’ll see that they are used. Feel free to send them to matt.shafer@visitkingsisland.com ------------------------------ Sarah Grimes - What ride do you think is the greatest draw for peop
  21. Does the Backlot Stunt Coaster look like kings dominions
  22. Another late night as we prepare for Opening Day tomorrow. Below are the questions selected for Friday's 5@5 mailbag: Zach Clapper - When do fireworks start? Do they start in the summer or opening night? We are going next Saturday and my friends have never seen the cool fireworks. Zach, fireworks are scheduled to take place every night the park closes at 10pm through Labor Day. They’ve been a tradition at closing since the Coney Island days. Where in the park do you like to watch the fireworks? ------------------------------ Nicholas Himes – Will KI ever get a sit-down restaurant? That i
  23. Another late night. Things should settle back to normal once we get open. And if you want to keep this going we would be happy to do it. Below are the questions selected for Thursday's 5@5 mailbag: Daniel Bruington - Will the brakes during the middle of Flight of Fear be on as hard this season as they were the last few? (It really does dampen the ride experience...) I don’t have a definite answer to that one. The brakes were on hard last year and probably will continue to be. This is to reduce wear and tear on the train. Adjustments have been made but it will most likely still be a brake.
