  1. What could 2018 bring KI

    Maybe they're making the shed better!
  2. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    I just wish they had more team prizes to win. I'd play the football game by Racer if they had an Indianapolis Colts pillow to try and win.
  3. The Beast Roughness/jerking

    ^ I'm with you on that with Voyage. During Holiwood Nights a few years ago, I rode that 5 straight times and had to sit out after a while because I thought it shook my brain around and gave me a headache. My one friend rode it like 25 straight times. I don't know how he did it. For me with The Beast, I don't mind that long straight track going into the brake tunnel or the long stretch of track before the second hill. In my opinion, it kind of prepares me for what's to come. I agree with another fan on here that it would be cool to add another hill in there for air time moments, but would they still have to add a brake somewhere along the way? That's my only question. I guess I'd have to experiment building The Beast in roller coaster tycoon to figure that out.

    I hope Kings Island never changes the Racer name because it makes sense to call it that. Plus someone mentioned a retrack might be done to Racer; could we possibly see new GCI trains go on Racer? I think that would be cool.

    When you tell your friends or co-workers to enjoy the rest of their day at work. Lol
  6. Blitz or RMC?

    If Kings Island ever retired Vortex like that long rumor that's been tossed about for years, I think an Intamin blitz would be perfect in that spot. However, If they wanted to put it somewhere else, Kings Island has plenty of land to play with to squeeze one in. Cedar Fair/Kings Island need a second park with a blitz coaster like Maverick.

    ^ My thought on that is maybe they want guests to feel like they're getting an early Christmas present.

    I had an idea on here. There are rumors at Cedar Point indicating that Wicked Twister might be moving to another park soon. Is it possible that land cleared could possibly be for that? Just a thought.

    Was there dates mentioned in the video that I may have missed?

    I like where you're going with this buddy. I'm on the train that thinks this will be the rebirth of the antique cars. In my opinion, why else would they completely demolish two buildings? To me it just makes sense.
  11. Improving Que Lines

    I'm glad somebody bumped this topic. I always thought a few queues were outdated, but the one I would update the most is the one for Racer. I never see them use both sides when you enter the queue house; just the left side. I think they should be creative with the queue for Racer and make it curve around like they did for Mystic Timbers.

    Anyone go to the park tonight notice any new construction in the coney mall area? If you're going tomorrow, could you please post a reply tomorrow? We haven't seen any new progress lately.

    One facebook page said that this could be the start of them prepping for the new antique cars returning or the new restaurant you guys talking about that debuted in Soak City.
  14. Mystic Timbers named Best New Ride

    Congratulations to Kings Island and GCI for teaming up and creating a masterpiece of a roller coaster. Now with The Beast and Mystic Timbers next to each other, it's a one two punch in Rivertown. By the way, is there a link from golden tickets to show the complete list of both steel and wooden roller coasters?
