    Top 10 favorite Kings Island coasters

    ^And I was stuck in a Taxi Jam first time I rode it! With a character known as "Top Cat".

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I think what many are forgetting is that there is still TONS of wide open, treeless land left over from SOB's former footprint. In fact, it's quite remarkable how little of its space was filled by Banshee...mainly where the lift-hill and inner-helix used to be.... Many have been calling for the removal of the former-DA trail. That would be a bad move IMO.... ...considering the fact there is plenty of room for a coaster (a Giga, even) found from SOB and Firehawk's former land, as well as the land in between them....

    Best Coaster YouTube Channel

    ^ Same. As a general rule, I'm not a fan of any channel that takes unauthorized/illegal POVs. --- My overall favorite has to be Defunctland (if that counts). Lots of great info, and insight. Essentially, its videos are like mini-documentaries that recount the history of famous defunct rides/attractions.... The accounts on Son of Beast and Tomb Raider are quite definitive, and as mentioned above, a lot of the info for those come from none other than our own @bkroz!
  4. Skyrush delivers that insane ejector airtime and the tight-knit transitions that's to be expected from an Intamin hyper. This B&M hyper on the other hand, I presume will offer a much different an experience: floater air, more graceful etc. It seems I am one of the few that think that these two hypers will make for quite a dynamic duo.
  5. Cedar Point's last three coasters have been marketed as TALLEST, FASTEST, LONGEST .............[insert coaster type here] There was only like 6 or 7 wing coasters in the world when GK opened (and still aren't that many). There were just 3 B&M Dive Machines before Valravn. ---- All "first hyper-hybrid" means is that they built a steel hypercoaster, one of the dozens that have been built since 1989... but this is the first one that just happens to be supported by wood. Woop-dee-doo... ----- When Fury 325 opened as the tallest gigacoaster, all that means is tallest coaster under 400 ft. ----- Cedar Fair are the experts at creating "records".

    That looks incredible. One of the best designs I've seen yet!

    Kentucky Kingdom

    Kentucky Kingdom. Where Else? Oh, wait... At 0:12 seconds....It's always hilarious to watch unsuspecting GPer's get on something like a Zamperla Flyer, or a Vekoma SLC....and them smiling and probably thinking "This looks fun!" And they even know idea what they've gotten themselves into!

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    From a strictly riding experience, I've always considered the Flying Dutchman model to be one of the (very) few things that Vekoma actually did quite well... Unfortunately for them, it was based on a concept that was always going to have inextricable reliability/capacity issues....thus resulting in it being iterated just three times. It's a shame those darn SLC's can't go instead...... --- Flying Dutchman: 3 ever made Suspended Looping Coasters: 41 !!! oh the horror make it stop ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    While I haven't agreed with much of anything that @Maverick44 has said on the matter, by no means would I say he is trolling. This discussion (so far) has been cordial, so I don't think its very nice of you to jump at him calling him a troll. Remember the summer of 2013 (The Great Flame War of '13 as I call it)? Now THAT was trolling... To anyone that doesn't remember, you don't know what real trolling looks like...

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    The loss of our beloved Mine Train would be beyond devastating. It would leave a hole in KI that could never be sufficiently filled

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    GateKeeper - 2013, Valravn - 2016, Steel Vengeance - 2018 3 coasters over 5 years, (in 6 total seasons). --- While anniversaries are fun to celebrate and attach sentimental meaning to them, its important to remember that in the context of when parks decide to make major investments, they're basically irrelevant... Parks are going to make investments simply when the time is right. Now, ocasionally it will just so happen that "big" coasters are put in during parks' anniversaries, but I would say these are just coincidences (see I305 for KD's 35th ann.) Why should CP rush to build yet another big ride/coaster for the year 2020, just because they happened to open in 1870. Let's say they just so happened to open in 1868, 1872, 1905, 1911, or 1946?... Should that have any bearing as to what they should do in 2018-2020? In KI's situation, why should they wait two more years to put in something that would benefit the park tremendously (a Giga) just because they just so happened to open in 1972? Lets say for some reason instead they opened in 1970? Would that make 2020 "the year"? Not too long ago, I used to think that anniversaries play a factor in the timing of parks' investments, but the more I thought about, the more I realized that its just not very rational. ------- The fact that B&M has already been contracted on a document for the years 2018-2020 makes me think their engineers spent this summer surveying the land and developing a design. If I had to guess, I would say that the design might even be completely finished as we speak, and waiting for final approval (if not, already approved). Construction may well very be "officially" starting sooner than we think. I would predict starting Day 1 of KI's offseason, the chainsaws are going to be revved up right away and those trees are going to be dropping like flies!

    You will? Better find yourself a bookie (a coaster one) real fast!

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    If KI's planning on Giga for 2020, I don't think its going to be too difficult drawing people away from a park that gets a twice-recycled Vekoma flyer...
