  2. Straight from my about me page... Found this to be funny...from inside the ballot, it says:
  3. Considering that there are podcasts out there for seemingly anything and everything, I say... Why not us? Go for it!
  4. Again, thank you for for all the time and effort you put into writing these... I had a lot of fun...even for how abbreviated it was... it was great to take a walk down nostalgia lane and ride some one of my favorite classic coasters...the Tornado! And the ride on the flyers was great too... I was a part of my first ever selfie that day! Anyways, good work on the ptr and I look forwars to hanging out over thanksgiving break.
  5. Joshua... First, I would just like to thank you for the enormous amount of time and effort you put into this Ptr, and all your Ptrs for that matter...I understand how much time they take...which is why I never really write any However, I am glad you did, and enjoyed reading every word... I would also like to say that I'm glad that the trip was everything you imagined, despite my severe lateness to the event. I had lots of fun even though I was only there for less tham 2 hours. Those Beast and Diamondback noght rides were some of the best I have ridden in a long time... And most of all, I really enjoyed the car ride home and explaining my favorite pop punk band to you. Its a shame McDonalds was closed but I can't wait to go to Skyline or somewhere with you sometime over Thanksgiving break. And thank you to who everyone else from KIC who was there...I always am glad to be in your presence! In sum, I really enjoyed this ptr and will be looking forward to part 3.
  6. A great work so far! Love the title! A quite innovative way to do trip reports I might add, and I look forward to reading the two subsequent parts... Your welcome! I had a lot of fun as well. And despite the unexpected tardiness to Kings Island... We still did a lot in just 1 hour and 42 mins!
  7. Can't believe how steep that looks from that angle... Incredible.
  8. It's still around. Just virtually no activity besides these 2 posters (I Am A Rider and SSR1996) that will still regularly post. Mainly to each other. But hey it's still something!
  9. GREAT report. Glad I could finally sit down and read it all... A interesting series of events sure did happen before I arrived! I really am amazed at how you (and VortexBFForever) are able to recall seemingly every single minor detail that will happen in a day, and consolidate it into a hearty TR. No wonder they take so long to write!.. But anyways, no problem about giving you a lift home. I enjoyed the conversation we had very much as well. And yes, I did struggle with the driveway
  10. I'd love to go, but this happens to be the exact day of move-in at OSU. So no event for me...
  11. SIX is not FUN. CP is not KI. KI is not Carowinds.
  12. The park considers Surf Dog as a coaster, and The Racer as just one. The GCI Engineer said KI will have 5 wooden coasters next year, but that is not correct. The Racer does not count as two coasters. However, the total track length of both Red and Blue go into the park's wooden track length record, which with Mystic Timbers will be 18,804 ft.
  13. Great pictures! Thanks, but if you could please not quote ALL the photos... it will save broadband space and make things run faster. Thank you.
  14. Made my first visit today: Not much new at the zone but here are the pics for what they're worth 6-15-2016:
  15. Honestly, any middle row seat on The Beast is far smoother than a brown train, row 16, end-of-season ride on Diamondback in my opinion. It really is one of the smoothest woodies around. To my knowledge, the last year in which The Beast was rough was 2008, with work being done prior to the 2009 season. I also believe that the degree of braking on The Beast has actually been the same since Opening Day 1979; only the method of braking has changed.
  16. Due to transportation complications, I was not able to make it to either event this weekend, but am going over to Hershey tomorrow and visiting Great Advencha thursday, so it's all good. Haven't been to Hershey since I first visited in 2011, so there will be a few new things I need to try out. Skyrush looks like one magnificent ride...
  17. Sadly, I did not remember to register in time, and therefore will not be attending. But at least I have HoliWood nights to look forward to...
  18. I'm just waiting for Thrill_Biscuit to create an image of Gatekeeper themed to Gateway computers...
  19. But apparently not according to KI's 2015 Haunt Map (which still has it listed as Delta Delta Die).
  20. What each haunted attraction is rated towards me: Blackout: 0/5 Wolf Pack: 0/5 Cornstalkers: 0/5 Sorority House: 0/5 Board To Death: 0/5 KillMart: 0/5 Urgent Scare: 0/5 Slaughter House: 0/5 Madame Fatale's Cavern of Terror: 0/5 Tombstone Terror-Tory: -1/5 CarnEVIL: 0/5 Note that I am in no way to trying to discredit the effort Kings Island puts into their haunted attractions but just that I don't typically find Boofest-type attractions to be that scary (but are fun to walk through). Except for Tombstone Terror-Tory this year. This one really was lazily done when I walked through it last Friday. There were hardly ANY scareactors, the covered bridges had virtually nothing in them, and worst of all there is no train experience attached to it anymore either.
  21. Now ya see, Intamins really are dangerous... I guarantee the fella would have just been just fine had he gotten stuck in a B&M wheel assembly.
