  1. I like that we, as a collective community, are now referred to as “roller coaster experts”...
  2. This site has come a long way in the speculation department. I remember all the ups and downs with the Diamondback thread back in the day. It’s pretty awesome that we have so many different walks of life helping out with knowledge. Architects, engineers, mathematicians. This ride may not be what some are expecting, and that’s okay. We’re all human! Personally, I’m just amazed to have something like this so close. We’ve got the whole summer still to go, and a lot still to uncover. Keep marching forward ladies and gents!
  3. Oh Dustin, now you’ve done it... John Matarese is gonna be all over this! Looks great!
  4. You're right. My lack of coffee is showing! Better scurry back to my corner... I meant Magenta... My apologies to both of you!
  5. Remember, as Shaggy has mentioned, we currently do not know how high the station initially will be.
  6. Well. What one evening makes.
  7. It should be noted: They are very strict with how we do things here because we have a very strong relationship with the park itself. We are essentially the closest thing to an "official" forum. What we do and say can be seen by some as representing the park.
  8. The process is very early. Keep watchin' what they do people. Fun times are ahead for us all! I have a gut feeling there's a name floating out there that will throw us for a loop!
  9. So cool to see the speculation thread has begun. I wonder if the weather (rain, rain, rain) has played a role in the timeline for clearing out certain areas.
  10. That looks amazing! I'm stepping back in time! I can't wait to take my daughter so she can experience all of this stuff. It really means a lot for Kings Island to focus on these details.
  11. Ah, I remember walking in to a glorious fanfare and seeing International Street. It added to the magical experience, one I hope I can reciprocate for my daughter when she's old enough.
  12. @SonofBaconatorI was thinking along the same lines. I think this summer Kings Island is going to hit some feels for the older generations.
  13. Man, John Matarese has gotten lazy with his writing. Is that really news worthy? I've had work colleagues coming up to me telling me "Hey did ya hear Kings Island announced their new ride?" I'm like... "uhh... no. That's a fan submission. Very well done, but it's a fan submission..." Social media has completely gone off the rails with false information and news. Although it is keeping the park in the buzz, so that's a plus for the PR group I guess!
  14. While the capacity and mechanics of the ride weren't the best, it was very fun when it was working. Did they do any hints about the future?
  15. I still remember when King Cobra came down. Tomorrow will be an emotional day.
  16. Has there been any news on when the announcement will happen? Is later this week meant to be Friday the 28th?
  17. I just hope that speculation is true and we get something to replace what we lose. The conference call stuff about cutting costs has me a little worried.
  18. We all can't be happy I guess. As a father, I am very encouraged to see these finally return! A past poster would be preaching patience at this point. Good things come with time. And as always, look at what they do, not what they say! Lord I miss the Interpreter!
  19. Just too cool! I love hearing stories like this about people achieving their dreams. It gives me hope for the future. Congrats Chad!
  20. Sorry that happened to you beastfan. I hardly ever eat while in the park, mostly due to the heat and riding rides. Cost as well... $19? For wings and fries? If I do eat during my stay, I always pick the LaRosa's on International Street when it's less busy (usually 2 or 3PM). The less busy those restaurants are, the better the service quality. When it becomes a mad house with long lines, well, those teen workers usually get a bit frazzled.
  21. I see this thread is back from the dead!
  22. I dig the new little logo on my bookmarks bar. Excellent job on a seamless transition!
