  1. ^ I know Kings Island uses the Action theater for the haunts usually, but would they ever consider using it as a new indoor ride? I'm not sure what kind of interactive ride you could put in there now in days because they gutted the old stuff from the 90s and early 00s. I guess my question is would it be more cost effective to just rebuild the whole a new building If they were to put in a new interactive ride?
  2. Right now, there's no dire need for us to see the webcams. Not trying to speak for all of us, but right now the only thing to see is the big snow mountains around the rides. Once we get closer to opening day, I bet they'll turn them back on.
  3. ^ I like that idea. It's a shame that action theater hasn't gotten much love since the 90s and early 2000s.
  4. I know people are tired of B&M, but just one more and make it a Floorless.
  5. ^ I can see where you're going with this, but I have some ideas for you. I would put the station where The Vortex station was and have the layout turn to the right just like Vortex. Instead of a normal chain lift, the train shoots up like 107 feet then drops at a 95 degree angle just like Maverick. They layout still drops straight, but turns crazy wild like how Maverick does to the right; in front of The Beast service road there. I could see the layout start to use the ravine a little where it dips to it's advantage too. What do you think?
  6. I've said it on other topics, but I would love to see a ground up rmc in the spot of Vortex. If not there, maybe in the spot of The Bat. I've heard rumors that might be the next roller coaster getting the boot. I also wouldn't mind seeing a B&M Floorless model come to Kings Island. I've mentioned this before too on other topics on KI central. Have a similar layout like Dominator at Kings Dominion.
  7. Ohh boy! Both of those rides are fan favorite rides. Removing either one of those rides would be a heartbreaking.
  8. I read your whole reply but wanted to respond to this comment. Yes they're making money, but it would still be nice for a smaller park to have a new roller coaster added once every 5-10 years. I often hear people say, Michigan Adventure's is alright, but it's boring. Maybe if they add a GCI roller coaster like Mystic Timbers, that would put them on the map. Give people a reason to come to a park that's in the middle of nowhere. Take Holiday World for instance. The closest major city to them is Louisville, Kentucky. Other than that, they're in the middle of nowhere too.
  9. I know this is random, but I like to think that their relationship with RMC is mutual. I wouldn't say they have a love-hate relationship.
  10. Minus the squeaking in the beginning, it's not a bad ride. Here's the link in case people wanted to see what it's like.
  11. They could also use the name Polaris since they copyrighted that name two years ago.
  12. ^Would a ground up RMC still be possible in the Cedar Fair chain? I would still love If RMC built a ground up at Kings Island.
  13. l must be one of the few that like the new fountains. The only thing I wish they did was shoot the new fountains up higher. I get it, corporations want newer products and Cedar Fair did just that with the fountains. Now If they could shoot them up just as high as the old fountains, then I would feel like the pedestals are still there.
  14. 13 so far, but I have a good reason for that. I work two jobs and it's hard for me to get down there as often as the regular fanboys on here.
  15. I know this subject I'm going to talk about belongs in the dream thread, but I thought since we're talking about Racer might as well talk about it here. I've seen this photo many times lately where the track is missing in the above photo, but in my dream Kings Island practically demolished the whole blue side of Racer and built it from the ground up; all GCI style. The good news was they announced they were adding those special trains like what Mystic Timbers has on it.
