    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    Food Service was way off today, and the park wasn't even busy. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Kings Island Confirms removal of Coaster

    I hardly ride Firehawk, Vortex on the other hand is still one of my all time favorite rides period. I wouldn't miss Firehawk much but I'd be devastated if Vortex is leaving. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Will Diamondback always be the tallest at KI?

    I have a feeling 2019 will be the last year of Diamondback being the Tallest, Fastest, Coaster to ever strike Kings Island. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Get rid of one coaster- The Poll

    I beg to differ, y'all just don't appreciate Vortex. Vortex was never B&M smooth, it was a different time back in 1987. It's funny the complaints didn't seem too happen with Vortex until the park got B&Ms. I love Arrow Coasters. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Even people with a 2018 have to pay for Haunt. Haunt at Wonderland is a separate event. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Vortex had it's last complete paint job back in 2001 the year I was a ride op on Vortex. It did get the rails repainted in 2009. And yes 2000 was the last year for Bond at KI, 7th Portal and Smash Factory showed in 2001. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I hardly ever see Vortex down, I'm sure it does from time to time, it did when I worked on it back in 2001. The thing that worries me about Vortex is it's ridership, it continues to drop each year. Granted we have received 3 major coasters since 2009 with two being B&M. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Vortex

    Considering they did put work into the ride during the 2017 Off season, they replaced quite a few of the footings and also got a brand new air compressor for it, it's not going anywhere anytime soon. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Question about Beast's entrance?

    Beast Canyon Cold Drinks, I believe that sign still remains. You could buy drinks or snacks while waiting in line. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Mystic Timbers employees rude

    I had an issue yesterday at Mystic, instead of the operator pulling up to make sure the lap bar was locked, the operator pushed down with all of his weight and knocked the wind out of me. Then I brought it to another ops attention and they were making excuses for the behavior. I did indeed go to GS in all of the rides I've taken on Mystic that has never happened and it shouldn't have happened. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. Yet Cedar Point can stop lifts and take people's phones. Sometimes I get the Impression some of the ops don't care. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
