  1. I was born in the late 90s so I grew up in the early 2000s Paramount Era. Which decade do you think was the best decade for the park? Personally I think the 2010s is the best era for the park because of the additions like Banshee, Mystic Timbers, and the return of old favorites like the gliders, Winterfest, Bat, and the Antique Autos/
  2. Yes. Trying to avoid one word posts
  3. Patriot at CGA is shorter than Vortex and that has floorless trains. If B&M made second gen stand-up trains to test I would be all for it but I don't see that happening anytime soon.
  4. I like it that way- you get a good picture http://cpfoodblog.com/park-food-guides/kings-island-food/
  5. That was an inside joke from the summer of 2013 where a troll kept telling us he saw green Intamin track..
  6. Personally I think they need a GCI over the Dinosaurs Alive area. On another note, I'm surprised Vortex hasn't been converted to a floorless yet; maybe that'll be an off year project when they don't have anything else immediately planned
  7. With what's been happening to the other Vekomas in the chain I agree. Boomerang at KBF could have been relocated or sold but instead it was scrapped, same with Stinger and FH. I'm sure we'll get a few more years out of Invertigo until its ridership drops or maintenance costs go up enough to justify a removal. After that, I don't think we'll see another coaster removed for a while. For years I thought BLSC would be removed but now I'm leaning more towards a retheme.
  8. I think it would save the chain more money if they just relocated the ride as opposed to building a new one. One man's "trash" is another man's treasure and I think the fans of CGA would love Wicked Twister at their park.
  9. I think there's a duration of time after a new ride debuts where people want something new. I'd say with a park like KI, that duration is 3 years. In my opinion, the 3 year formula works perfectly, take the gap between Banshee and Mystic Timbers. 2014- Banshee's inaugural season 2015- Banshee's second season 2016- Prep for new attraction 2017- Mystic Timbers inagural season If you apply that to 2020 you get this 2017- Mystic Timbers inaugural season 2018- Mystic Timbers second season 2019- Prep for new attraction 2020- Giga It takes about 3 years to plan a coaster according to Greg Scheid and I think we'll continue to see this formula.
  10. I still wonder if they'll RMC Hurler in the coming years or just leave it.
  11. I think he's referring to the CGA poster, which isn't exactly a source but is a solid base for speculation http://coasterhub.com/archives/19188
  12. We've seen some significant coaster removals in the Cedar Fair including Stinger at Dorney Park, Firehawk at KI and Volcano at KD to name a few. With this knowledge one can only speculate that more coasters will be removed in the future. What do you guys think are the next coasters to be removed? Personally I think Vekoma is going to be purged from the chain with exceptions to smaller rides like Flying Ace Ariel Chase and others. I don't think Arrow coasters will be in Jeopardy unless RMC's T-Rex proves to be a superior track style. *I have no information on which Cedar Fair coasters will be removed or when, pure speculation*
  13. Does anyone know the ride's hourly capacity? I know there were three trains holding 16 riders each.
  14. Agreed, I think every B&M added to the chain have been a solid investment.
  15. IF Phantom Theater makes a return, I nominate Mark Hamill to voice the Maestro
