  1. Surprised they didn’t do yellow/blue/red so it would look similar to another giga in Ohio!
  2. Not at KI, but I’ve had to stop a coaster on the lift because someone pulled out not a phone to film, but an entire iPad from under their shirt... who wants to get hit with an iPad?!
  3. Last time I rode it they had the music in the bowl up pretty loud. Was once again able to hear the dramatic music shift hanging on the MCBR that had mainly been reduced to beeps and bops when they turned it down.
  4. Heck, they haven’t removed all of the footings from the last thing that was here before Vortex.
  5. Yes this is partly true. When I worked at KK, and Lightning Run was new. I remember staying past midnight just to run that thing through cycles don’t know about a specific number but it as constantly moving for hours.
  6. ^ it is Vortex that’s the second drop right there going up to the point where it curves around to go into the double loops.
  7. It would have to be a block brake outside the unload station. The control panel is at the rear of the unload station and there is a window for the operator to see the train. I’m sure it functions to both send the train on and bring the next one in. That’s also where the transfer table is and if it wasn’t a block you wouldn’t be able to stop the train for switch position.
  8. I think the only way to make up for this is to install an infinity coaster that dethrones Smiler if it’s inversion title. my reasoning: When Vortex opened, it held the inversion record, it’s only fitting its successor do the same.

    If they really wanted to, they could probably set up a temporary stand or use FoF former photo area. Not a walk in gift shop, but certainly large enough to have a counter and some T-shirts behind it.
  10. ^or photo eye rigged by the boat itself.
  11. That’s disappointing then, when I went before the accident the line seemed to crawl and all of them were going then.
  12. How many trains does it have total? I can’t see a difference in running 2 vs running 3 or 4 as far as if the concern was brake power. I’ve ridden it before and it seemed to take a long time for a B&M as far as wait times. If there are 4 total trains I’d guess the ones that are off are the ones that were damaged from prior collision.
  13. We already have our car themed coaster though. edit: two of them actually lol

    If there was a large RMC in that exact spot, I doubt there would be any woods to speak of other than the structure.
