  1. I am talking about the ones through out the ride...
  2. If we learned from Banshee, then we know we probably have about 1 year worth of all of this lighting working before it starts to go bad. Note that now next to none of Banshee's lighting works now.
  3. I wanna bet it might be White water Canyon.
  4. Former Employee of Banshee/Diamondback and also a little bit of Maverick! (I also operated numerous other rides part-time through the park) Got any questions let me know!
  5. I love how with Banshee the park was very strict about people taking photos and videos on the property (Specifically the pick up/drop off area) But this year they haven't said a word about it, and I see a lot of people using that this year.
  6. Son of Beast and Diamondback operated together for roughly 2 months. I always forget that fact.
  7. I've kinda threw out there that I think a copperhead type of ride would work well in that area. I get that Backlot is right there, but I think the park could do with a new launch coaster. Or they could use Mack with a lift hill.
  8. I'm hopeful to see closure and the park releasing a video within the next few days. I know the park is celebrating Orion's first test runs and achievements, but some closure is needed on Vortex still. Just think... Orion tested while parts of Vortex were still standing tall.
  9. Such a drastic difference over the period of 1 month...
  10. Banshee's POV was done about a week or two before the park opened to the public to give you an idea.
  11. I mean, The Park can contact the FAA, and then you answer to the FAA.
  12. I can confirm it's WCPO Source is FlightRadar24 over Kings Island.
  13. I think they will be finished with track work by the last week of January, Afterwards the entire month of February and March will be the bulk of the testing phases. Trains are already arriving at the park, and I would not doubt that most of the electronic equipment has been completed. With the exception of the Trim Brake on the Big Hill.
  14. The one thing I got out of that was exactly how the construction site looked, and also when the ride may be topped off (Which I'm thinking tomorrow morning) I saw the piece ready to go at the bottom of the brake run with Great White ready to hoist it up.
  15. That original concept would have been fun, and interesting experience which would be very unique today if Cedar Fair would have kept it given the merger.
  16. That's actually false. There is one block before Unload that can be used if a train is still at unload.
  17. No renderings or anything ever told us how steep it would be. Only thing announcing the angle of decent is from Dayton Daily News and that was 85°
  18. Doubt it, construction schedule wouldn't make sense to do that. It'll most likely be done this week.
  19. Safe to say it's probably nearly the same height as Diamondback currently.
  20. When they get the next piece of supports together and add it to the track, that can be left free-standing as the track is supporting the support, and vise-versa. It's the crown that will have to be placed together with both cranes for support and to bolt down.
  21. Taken on Vortex's final day of operation 10-27-2019
