  1. I, personally have no issues with speiling.... I think if done and executed greatly it can add something to the ride. The exception would be if the spieling interfered with ride operations. Like if a spieller refuses to clear the train unless they all clap loudly and in the meantime the ride has all it's trains stacked. That's when I have an issue.
  2. I have considered them both two coasters as while they have the same layout, they are mirrored and have a different feel each ride compared between the two. Two tracks = two rollercoasters unless it is a mobius loop.
  3. Yes. When I was down there this year people were snapping multiple times! It was even encouraged by the ride ops!
  4. Pass processing is open as soon as the metal detector gates start letting people in, they will be able to take care of you in time for ERT, I can assure you of that.
  5. I heard the theme song of The Godfather in full glory while walking and it kind of made me do a double take, it fit in SO WELL. Opening day was WAYYYYYYYYY less busier than Preview day by a LONGSHOT. The lines were still long but not as unbearable as it was on Preview Day. Like a normal summer saturday almost. The park really seems to have upped their game this year, compared to the last two years. I have had a great three days spent at the park.....
  6. Just.... oh my. The ride is quick, smooth, intense, forceful, absolutely non-stop, so much airtime, so much lateral g's, it twists and bends! It feels so much longer than 3200 feet! The shed was a nice and unique thing, I liked it! The front has ALOT of airtime.

  7. And the economic climate for some 10 years after the 1973-75 Recession was also particularly horrible, the oil price essentially causing what would be nowadays a jump in gas prices from 2$ to 6$, inflation at 20% in 1980, interest rates at 10%+ from 1979-82. The Recession of 81-82 was even worse than 73-75. That contributed to major investment projects being cancelled around the country.
  8. I had a great first day at Kings Island yesterday. And I really think I will absolutely love working here. :] By the end of my shift I had eased in very much into my job.... which surprised even me! Here's the obligatory picture in front of the Mary statue my mom made me take before driving me to work. :]
  9. Thought to bump this. I had pretty much given up on going to this event, which I was kind of okay with. Since I had gotten no donations even after sharing on my social media.... Well that all changed today when I checked my account and was surprised to see that I had achieved the 100$ goal.... some random person donated 100$!!! VERY happy right now.

  11. You have the great memory that I do lol.... Paramore's Still Into You is a song I defintiely associate myself with KI Last year..... Let me see if I recall this correctly.... August 11th, 2016 1:00 PM? I was walking on the midway from Delirium to Slingshot looking at the Oktoberfest pond when the song came on... I was with BeastForever at the time and I just started like walking/dancing it was kinda funny. That night after ERT night with Racer I was waiting at the bathroom near the Coca-Cola Marketplace when Wide Awake by Katy Perry went on.... 9:50 PM? And I just looked around with Banshee sitting their silently and kinda thought to myself of how lucky I am. We then passed through International Street and Love Yourself by Justin Bieber was playing it kinda fit perfectly because the park was insanely quiet and an acoustical type song kinda fit into the atmosphere. October 7th I remember mostly because I heard my first Senses Fail song, My Fear Of An Unlived Life at approximately 2:00 am EDT, while on the way home from Kings Island and that kinda really kickstarted my interest into that band and alternative rock. Hollywood Nights playlist I associate with meeting KICers. April 16th,May 19th, August 11th, August 16th, August 18th
  12. I liked it. It felt like a carnival experience and fits very well into the park. :]
  13. Now this will be a bit less detailed than you are usually expecting from me, as I have quite a busy few days ahead of me and I do not have the time to do a huge summary of literally everything like I did for say October 7th+9ths trip report, I am sorry if that is a bit dissapointing but it seems that after not really having much to do from October until now life is going to be ramping up in how busy I am! In a big surprise, I started my coaster season early and went to Carowinds Amusment Park yesterday with fellow KICer Thoe124. It was a great visit... up there in the best visits of all time for me at an amusement park. IT WAS GREEEAATTT. I met some great people there.... the park was great. No crowds whatsoever... 75 degrees... lil rain.... perfect otherwise... it was overall such a fantastic theme park! Thoe124 will be making a vlog of our trip as well which may give a visual guide of our experience. Ride Count: Fury 325: 17? (I kinda lost track lol) Intimidator: 2 Hurler: 4 (INCLUDING a twice in a row zen ride in the front row... the whole train all for myself! ) Carolina Cyclone: 1 Nighthawk: 1 Afterburn: 2 Vortex: 2 Highlights and Thoughts (From my Facebook Post earlier today) 1) Fury 325 is one amazing and awesome and just freaking fantastic awesome exceptional intense fast breathtaking roller coaster. My new number 1. I rode it around 17 times.... twice in a row during the rain which was quite an experience! And twice in a row in row 4 on the last train of the night. It is also VERY intense. Something that astounded see me. It truly deserves the #1 roller coaster in the world title. So intense. So smooth. So great. My first giga... And I couldn't be happier! 20/10 2) The park has a very nice layout.... Kings Islands is better but I really like the areas and themes. It all flowed together. 3) Hurler is an UNDERRATED rollercoaster. It isn't that rough at all. Which absolutely surprised me. I ended my day before riding fury by getting two zen rides in a row on Hurler in the front seat. So memorable. 8/10 4) Intimidator has less accommodating seats than Fury. But I'm glad I was able to fit. They turned off the trim brakes it seems for our visit because the ride was testing so slowly in the morning. And it was a LOT better than I had heard about it. So much airtime that my FunPix lanyard was lifted out of my shirt! 10/10. 5) Afterburn is such a great invert. So intense. Quick. And not really sickening. Better than Banshee. But not better than my favorite b&m invert. Montu. But it's up there. :] 9.7/10 6) FunPix is a great investment. And for those curious you keep your same password and username from last year this year... found that out after wondering why I didn't get an email. 7) Vortex was one weird ride. I liked it. But I see why stand up rollercoasters are reviled. My gut hurt for 20 minutes afterwords. But it was a neat new experience. I can now say I've ridden a stand up rollercoaster. 7/10 8) Carowinds is a very friendly park with very nice employees and a very clean and very well maintained park. And very efficient ride operations. 9) Their WindSeeker is VASTLY worse in every single category compared to Kings Islands. It goes 1/2 the speed of ours. Is surprisingly less accomdating(I got a walk of shame on it!). And is just not as good. Makes me glad for our WindSeeker. 10) Met a LOT of new people at the park. It's kind of rare to meet on the whim fellow rollercoaster enthusiasts.... And I'm glad I did! 11) Sales tax seems to be VERY high... Which kind of made some things a bit more expensive than I first thought. 12) chance of rain + a Sunday + perfect weather otherwise = PERFECT DAY TO GO. 13) park seems to be like holiday world in which it empties out an hour before close. Got very dead at around 7 pm. 14) DRINK WATER. I had to take an hour long break because I was getting dehydrated at the park. Felt very nauseous and everything. I guess my body is getting older and I need to take it a little more easier than I used to. :] 15) nighthawk was VERY shaky but a pretty good ride. I liked it. :] 7/10 16) cargo shorts make rides more of a tight fit when filled with stuff. 17) I realized on this visit I still have a LOT of progress to go with losing weight. And this all gave me the encouragement to do so. Overall. I had a GREAT first visit to carowinds. I hope to come back soon. I truly had the best day ever. I'm so glad I was able to go. Thank you Carowinds for the fantastic visit. 10/10. BEST DAY EVER. :] Heres my funpix below!
  14. I'm probably the only one that's sad that Hollywood Nights is gone... I kinda liked the show!
  15. Thank you for having the bright idea of making a fantastic Kings Island fansite that is so much more than that. You created friendships and memories for many on here... including me. I'm glad I was finally really able to meet up with some kicers last year. Thank you for creating a website that means so much to so many people. Best of luck to you sir!
