  1. I thought Power Tower was lame. What whe need is a luanched one right next to Drop zone, Launch Zone.

    And it looks like Jump2 would look great in X Base, is its capacity good?

    On the HUSS website it says that the hourly capacity is 850 riders.

    That's an okay capacity for a flat ride.

  2. I think that if Cedar Fair can never find a solution to SOB that they open for one more season for 2011. This would give everybody a chance to rideit who never got to. Although this could be a bad idea, one more season means about 140 more days where KI could end up with another law suit on their hands.

    It's either they fix monstrosity of the ride or it's slash-and-burn for SOB.

    Ok so I'm not trying to be mean but if its closed for safety reasons, they are not going to open it up so people can ride it again. Then they might as well keep it open...

    That's why I said, "this could be a bad idea" And anyway it's not closed for safety reasons. The State of Ohio has certified it operate. It's CF thats not letting it open


  3. I thought that it would be an awesome topic to talk about where people were when they first found out about DB.

    I remember that I was coming home from a baseball game and got the mail. I saw piece of paper that said "Kings Island" on it. I unfolded the note and was so excited to look at that red and black piece of paper. I just couldn't wait for 2009!

  4. I like Drop Tower and Delirium, so I'm good. I never get excited about a flat unless it is really amazing (see: Spiderman at Universal, Tower of Terror, etcetera) but there is a 0% chance ANY Cedar Fair park would ever get that. And with that said, lol, I would love to get a ride similar to Power Tower at Cedar Point.

    It would be cool to have a ride like Power Tower, just not next to Drop Zone. That would look hideous.

  5. I think we need more carnival like rides. Just for fun. Such as an Enterprise. I know, we have enough spinning rides - but what would it hurt to just have one more? I don't think KI needs a big flat ride, we just need a fun little family ride.

    And, what's a Jump2?

    This is an example of a Jump2...

  6. KI has been lacking in flat rides for a long time. The next ride they add will most likely be a fairly cheap flat ride since they spent $22 million on DB a year ago. I would be satisfied with a new flat ride next year or 2 years from now.

  7. My biggest coaster turn-off is the trim brakes on The Beast. You're going really fast and then you slow down about at least 20mph.

    My biggest turn-on is the fun roughness that doesn't hurt which is also on The Beast.


  8. We need an equal.

    Paramount had the better quality theming. While Cedar Fair stripped all the theming, but has given us some great rides.

    I'll add an equal option.

  9. ON TOPIC- I rode the Crypt yesterday and It was a little bit better than the last time I rode it.(which was last year) There was some red flashing lights so you could the carving on the wall. I was quite satisfied. The theming still has a lot more room to improve. Maybe next year CF will get the memo and add some special effects,(spraying water, more lights, music, animatronic objects etc.)

    I hope...

  10. I always wondered If Paramount would doing better than CF right now.

    With CF we got Diamondback. But there's lots of anger with what their doing the once-great 'Crypt.'

    But there's still a long time before we can judge CF

    The point is Paramount gave us great theming and okay rides; CF is going to give us great rides but horrible theming.

    If only we could get the best of both worlds.

  12. I cant believe this but I still haven't gone to Kings Island and it's been about a month and a half since Opening Day. I am visiting this Wednesday and I am so pumped!

    I can't wait to see everything that is different.

  13. On the exciting debut in May 2000 Son of Beast was drenched in so much anticipation it forced the rider to say they like it because they didn't want to admit SOB was a bad ride since they've probably been waiting since 1999 when PKI announced SOB. By 02' or 03' people started to realize that the ride was a FAIL!!!sad.gif By 08'-present the ride has become a major problem that brings down the name that is 'Kings Island'

    SOB is crying out for Intamin to come KI make the ride a "prefab"

    It's our last hope. If this doesn't work...NOTHING WILL!!!
