  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Yes...first added to Nitro in its second season 20 years ago. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  4. Not only that, they even converted the wrong number into metric. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  5. 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
  6. I got on at about 10:03 and never saw a button. Tried multiple links and refreshed several times. Oh well. Maybe next year.
  7. I didn't know Intamins required spare parts. Sent from my SM-G998U using Tapatalk
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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
  12. After riding The Beast yesterday, I can say it's still a great ride, but I'd really like a GG retrack on pretty much every track piece that isn't straight. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. Rougarou, Valravn, GateKeeper, and maybe Raptor have them at Cedar Point. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. The test seat should be fine. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. No. Every seat is the same. You'll need 3 clicks. Exact same seat as Diamondback. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  16. I can squeeze into Woodstock just fine. Cross your legs. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  17. I am pretty much your exact dimensions, 6'5" and a muscular 304. Everyone is different. I have the most trouble with Drop Tower and Flight of Fear. Banshee has longer seatbelts in rows 4 and 5 but has a test seat outside. Orion and Diamondback can be tight for me as you need 3 clicks. Try to sit as far back in your seat as possible. You only need 1 click on Mystic Timbers so if you've been on other GCIs with Millennium Flyers, you'll be fine. Beast and Racer have your typical PTCs where you will need 2 clicks. Try sticking your feet out to the side to give yourself more room on those. Best of luck to you from a fellow big guy. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  18. How is it today? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  19. Looks like HW is doing everything they can to make it up to fans. Great customer service.
  20. PTCs are more cramped for me as well, as I'm 6'5". But PTCs have a reputation industry wide for being some of the more accommodating trains. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  21. I believe there's no correlation between PTCs and B&M clamshells. PTCs tend to be some of the more accommodating trains as long as you are not overly tall. Premier (Flight of Fear, Backlot Stunt Coaster) may give you more issues. BLSC does not have a seat belt which helps though. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  22. Flight of Fear has never been rough to me. It just has rapid transitions. In my opinion, our FoF is smoother than KD's, but Poltergeist at SFFT is the smoothest of the three AND doesn't have a MCBR. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  23. Wow. Surprised to see Gravity Group on the project after GCI did such a good job. I would speculate it came down to cost. Hopefully the banked turned towards the final bunny hills is reprofiled. It was always a little funky. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
