  1. Mystic Timbers is currently at about 25 minutes. Banshee is around 15 -20 minutes.
  2. I agree that folks should abide by the rules that are set, but isn't that the case everywhere in life? Only letting in Pass-holders through the gate would not be comforting to those who use bring-a-friend tickets. These tickets are available as "Bring-A-Friend Any Day Ticket" on the Kings Island website. These tickets are used more than one might assume. The introduction of a pass-holder only early entry system would practically eliminate any sales they make on those tickets. Just my thoughts.
  3. The very last paragraph almost comes off as quite rude to Cedar Point..... Not the biggest fan of the wording used throughout the article.
  4. The tree (Oakley) seems to be a rare occurance for some reason..... I only saw it once out of 20 rides on Thursday. Strange.
  5. Looks like RFYLCB is going through test cycles right now. (Good view of the splash from the Diamondback Cam) We're almost there guys!
  6. Edit
  7. EDIT: Park got everything fixed.
  8. Nice that we're getting a glimpse into the creation of the theming elements. Oh, and hey there again Mystc Timrers at Kngs Island......... .....TheBEASTunchained, who just can't leave this sign alone...
  9. Very interested in the speakers on the oustide of the shed. Curious as to what they'll be used for.....
  10. The plaza / ride entrance theming is stunning! I honestly can't believe that we're seeing a non-Paramount Kings Island doing such great ride theming. Still not a fan of the vine going through the middle of the sign though. It looks strange, to say the least.
  11. The vine going down the middle looks absolutely horrible. Hopefully it's just hanging there while they place it around other parts of the sign. On a more positive note, the sign itself looks wonderful! Good to see the park doing more theming elements.
  12. Glad to know someone else has stayed in Port Clinton, as I have not but am planning on it. Any good hotel recommendations for Port Clinton? I'm trying to decide which look best for a night or two during CoasterMania
  13. I could be wrong but I would guess that, as OldSchool75 said, this is an almost clear sign of the start of the testing procedures in some form or another.
  14. They are slightly more forgiving to people of larger size from what I've gathered. (I'm not of larger size but have ridden with some folks that are on quite a few different GCI's) Also keep in mind that the restraint system is different from that found on the PTC trains used on The Racer and The Beast.
  15. I don't personally see the removal of Congo Falls taking place until TimberWolf is removed. I'll also go ahead and say that I believe this "double removal" will take place in the next 10-12 years. Food for thought: Carowinds just scrapped a similar ride to Congo Falls because they needed the room as part of their new "County Fair" expansion. I'm certainly not implying that we're getting that sort of expansion, but rather that rides like Congo Falls tend to be an easy choice to remove if in the way of future planned expansion areas. When the time comes when that area of Action Zone is needed for expansion, don't expect to see the ride or amphitheater stick around.
