  1. Orange seats ended up black anyway, and not by design. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  2. Racer was retracked by GCI in 2019. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  3. What in the world does Funtime being the manufacturer of Slingshot have to do with this? It opened in 2002, long before the tower ride in Orlando. On top of that, hasn't it already come out that Icon Park themselves altered the rides restraint/sensor system, not Funtime? Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  4. Strange. Almost every time I've been on Orion, our train has left the station before the train before us clears the first block on the long brake run. That's also why Orion has the variable speed lift. If you'll notice, the lift goes much faster after the train has cleared that block, just like Beast. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk

  6. Not only that, they even converted the wrong number into metric. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  7. Great journalism from CNN here... https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/beast-wooden-roller-coaster-kings-island-ohio-longer/index.html Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  8. I got on at about 10:03 and never saw a button. Tried multiple links and refreshed several times. Oh well. Maybe next year.
  9. I didn't know Intamins required spare parts. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  10. Ever since we acquired Stinger's trains from Dorney, Invertigo has been much better. Never perfect but I always give it one ride when I'm at the park. You also never know how long Invertigo has at the park. I made the mistake of avoiding Vortex in its final seasons when it was still an elite ride. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  11. Ride wait times were excellent last night. Orion - 5 minutes Racer - Walk-on Adventure Express - Walk-on Banshee - 5 minutes Bat - Walk-on Mystic Timbers - 25 minutes Diamondback - 10 minutes Beast - 30 minutes Invertigo - Walk-on Definitely my most successful coaster riding haunt trip.

  12. Our team has the health and welfare of our guest who was involved in Sunday’s incident at Top Thrill Dragster at the forefront of our minds. We will continue to offer our support to her and her family in this unimaginably difficult time. We want to fully understand what happened and why. Together with the Ohio Dept. of Agriculture’s Division of Amusement Ride Safety & Fairs, third party investigators, engineers and the ride’s manufacturer, we are being careful, methodical and thorough. We will not rush the investigation and will work tirelessly in our search for answers in the interest of improving safety. This process will take time. As a result, Top Thrill Dragster will remain closed for the 2021 season. The safety of our guests and associates is our top priority and we refuse to operate any ride or attraction without total confidence in its safety.

  13. After riding MF and Orion in the same week, I feel I can safely rank my gigas: 1. I305, 2. Orion, 3. Millennium Force Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
