  1. I'm excited for Orion. I was hoping for Polaris, but hey I'm sure they'll use that on a future ride in the chain somewhere. I love that Kings Island is part of the Giga family now as far as top parks in the chain. The only question I have is what is the overall height for Orion? I know they're advertising a 300' foot drop, but what is the actual height?
  2. I saw the announcement and I'm excited for Orion in 2020. The only question I have is what is the overall height? The video just promotes a 300' foot drop.
  3. Aside from the petition talk everyone is talking about, I just want to thank the person who found this video so I can watch it several times at home before I hang out with my friends for the day. Lol
  4. Not to ask a question that might have already been asked and answered, but is there a rumored date for announcement yet?
  5. I love this song and think I'll go listen to it now.
  6. I could see Congo Falls being relocated in the park closer to the other two water rides If that's the case. I think you're onto something there as far as having a Floorless roller coaster in the future. I would welcome that because I love Rougarou at Cedar Point and could see Kings Island getting a floorless someday because of guest popularity.
  7. I like you're way of thinking. I wouldn't be able to think it up like you just did because of my A.D.D, but I like that way of thinking. Plus I think the Polaris name is a cooler name than Orion. I'm sure they'll be a story line to this ride just like there was for Mystic Timbers two years ago.
  8. I always assumed The Beast was a dude here. Just because of how tough and mean it is of a ride.
  9. The second one looks like the Jordan logo on shoes back in the early 2000s.
  10. That video gives me chills even almost 20 years after it debuted. Although it's not the new millennium anymore so they should consider renaming it to something more catchy. So maybe whatever ride name Kings Island goes with, maybe they could rename Millennium Force with the other name. I know that sounds un-realistic but hey it's a nice fantasy right?
  11. Question: When is KI central going to post another facebook update from the KI central page? I'm a dork and like to share that stuff on my wall on my page.
  12. Has anyone discussed what the angle of the drop will be? The drop in the video looks like it could be an 85 degree drop.
  13. I would love Kings Island to be the first park to get a Floorless roller coaster with the new vest restraints on it. Also give it a fun exciting layout like Dominator at Kings Dominion. I would be up for that!
  14. Question for everyone. Now that we're in the month of June, are people liking the new fountains more or is it still mixed feelings? I was thinking once they started getting all the sprinklers running correctly that maybe people would like them more. I hear it's a big success with the new night time show though.
  15. ^ There needs to be a wow emoji here because this is the time where I feel like saying wow!
  16. I wonder if they'll keep the old sign from Firehawk along with the old photo booth. Still both in great condition!
  17. ^ They re-used the old queue that was white water landing for Maverick when it opened. Do you think the general public would notice that much? Not trying to prove you wrong, but just saying here.
  18. I know people are saying that they'll re-use that queue from Firehawk for Flight of Fear, but hear me out here. In my opinion, why don't they use that old queue for the new ride? I mean I know the blueprints show it being used for Flight of Fear, but even on a busy day with a full queue, you're looking at a two hour wait. If I'm a guest on a busy day like I'm referring to, I would just go to a different ride. Lastly, you have that old queue to save you money on pouring more concrete for the new ride so why not utilize it? I'm done with my point now so I'll go away.
  19. Just curious everyone, but what is this area?
  20. Just curious did they just rip up the old Dinosaurs Alive paths? It kind of looks that way from the recent pictures posted on this page.
  21. I don't understand why they have left the Firehawk trains near the construction site? I figured they would have been shipped off by now.
  22. Anybody know If they're planning another Peanuts celebration week like they did last year?
  23. Plus the footers would have to be spread out more to accommodate the layout of Vortex.
  24. I would love love to see a floorless come to Kings Island. In my opinion, that's one coaster that's missing from the park. I feel like Cedar Point is more complete now with Rougarou since 2015. I know some people will argue that coaster sucks, but to me I love it! Maybe when Kings Island does decide to build one, they could build the first one with the vest restraints. Heck I think it would be awesome to have the first Floorless Giga, but the likelyhood of that happening is slim. There would be a lot of butterflies going down the first drop though.
  25. That looks like Mystic Timbers station? Can you confirm this thatguyfromohio? Also I wanted to ask If there's been any new digging in the land clearing photo?
