  1. Regarding the Fluffy Friendly portion of this post, Im a Fluffy Guy (5'11", 305) and Im sure people already know this, but In Banshee, Rows 4 and 5 are what I refer to as the "Fluffy Lines" The Seat belts are just a little bit longer to accomidate guests such as myself. I truly appreciate that. Drop Towers belts used to be a lot longer than they are now. I was sad to see the last remaining Orange belts leave because I cant fit the new red belts..
  2. I'm sure someone here has some knowledge about Winterfest before Paramount did it it 2005. What was admission prices when they did it in the 80s? Did they include admissions with season passes? What attractions were open? I always heard just the train and the grand carousel, but could someone verify? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. https://www.facebook.com/kiwinterfest Over 4000 likes on this page with close to 3000 coming only in the last couple weeks. Winterfest Needs to happen again, somewhere down the Road...
  4. I actually prefer the leaked Bat Logo myself..I dig the Black.
  5. Awesome awesome news. Makes me so happy that I snapped about 20 pics of flight deck on the last day of the season. Will be cool to contrast them on opening day next year.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I can Confirm that there was No Flight deck Decals on any car of the 2 trains that were running on Sunday. Also, Yes indeed, the landing strip tape has been removed on the brake run..
  7. For what it's worth, which I know talking to ride ops is usually just a reliable as the Dippin Dots guy, the ride op at Flight Deck today said te ride will be updated in the offseason. Mostly because the ridership will be higher because of Banshee. Here's some last day 2013 pics of the ride, hopefully last known as, Flight Deck.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  8. nothing beat it when it was days of Thunder when it first opened. They had the mock nascar scene set up in the entrance que with a Director calling the shots and the 2 nascar cars spinning on turn tables right before you entered the theater.. Awesome!!!
  9. Seems to me like way to much thought was put into this to just be a 10 minute Diversion for Banshee. the question is would Kings Island Sink this kinda Money into Rethemeing an old Arrow Suspended Coaster? Id like to think yes, but only time will tell.As excited as I am for Banshee, a Bat Retheme of Flight Deck is equally intriguing..
  10. You know what the sign says.. "The Beast is always lurking in Ambush.."
  11. Not to hijack the thread, but regular season passes expire on Labor Day?? As in, they cant come to any day after that? Not even a Non Haunt Sunday afternoon?
  12. My worst coaster experience was at Six Flags St. Louis riding "The Boss".. That thing beat me up 10 Times worse than Son of Beast ever did!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  13. Agreed....but placing a restaurant there could be done with the modifications as you stated....There wouldn't be room for a kitchen, so that would have to be at ground level with cart delivery to the platform (via the modified elevator system), and because there would be a view with limited seating, it could be by reservation only. The cuisine could be fine dining with a wine list, French cuisine perhaps. With a little imagination the park could have a real money generator. If memory serves me, when The international restaurant was in full operation, wasn't it a Fancy shmancy sit down, reservation type atmosphere? That would tell me that it's been done before and it didn't work..
  14. A little off topic, so let me apologize in advance, but does anyone have any High Resolution Pictures of the Banshee Logo they can either send me or send me a link to. It'd be appreciated. Thanks so much!!
  15. Is í ding di féin a scoileann an dair Irish expression.. "It is a wedge of itself that splits the oak.." Basically, Keep your inner Demons at bay.. I couldnt fine a translation for "nil son tritean man do theinean lean" closest i could find is "nil son tritean man do theinean lean" Im guessing "Man Do not lean on the Son"..Maybe.. Im lterally applying everything Ive learned in the past 10 minutes about Irish language To this post.. Just Noticed, "O'TERPY" The Interpeter?!?! Edit: 300TH POST BABY! Im getting there..
  16. I have to wonder.. How can those rafts go airborn at the transfer table? seems like a pretty simple and easy transition..
  17. Ment to post this last night. But we took an evening Train ride (7:30 ish) and i noticed WWC had only a tiny stream of water running through it. When stopping at Soak City, we were told that everyone would have to evacuate the train because they werent going to be running another one for at least an hour. Upon walking by a couple of disgruntled guests, I heard the WWC had to be evacuated and that the only way the workers can safely evacuate the ride is by crossing over the Train Tracks. Is this true? Has anyone heard an reason as to why WWC had to be evacuated yesterday? im curious...
  18. Man!!! Crowded at the ol park today. Nothing to report on the construction site. Went up Eiffel Tower at about 11 am and no Track Pieces or anything out of the Ordinary..
  19. Man! When a thread is created regarding the removal of another thread and it reaches almost 70 replies in just a little over 12 hours, That's Amazing!
  20. I dont think that has much to do with it honestly. You can have the best hygiene in the world, But after walking around Kings Island in 90 plus degree temps with 80% Humidity, even the cleanest person in the world Gonna be Stinky!
  21. I personally think black supports with dark Red Tracks would look awesome..
  22. I performed a search, but was unable to return any results. I read somewhere a while back that their was a glitch in Cedar Fairs system that allows you to use a Kings Island Gold Pass to park at Cedar Point (Or Any Cedar Fair park for that matter) for free. Is there any truth to this? has anyone done it successfully?
  23. I personally side with KiFanatic. That Phrase ment the exact same thing. In any case, we shall see..
