  1. Here is some videos on the history of a Kings Island’s Railroad, enjoy:
  2. I wonder if they’ll bring back the water scenery now with Vortex leaving. picture credit: https://www.visitkingsisland.com/blog/2019/april/the-beast-40-years-of-terror
  3. The bad things going for The Bat is mainly it’s location and being a short ride (The walk to the station is longer than the ride itself.) Otherwise, The Bat is a very underrated coaster.
  4. With a little marketing magic, make it what ever you want. RMC toppler track is marketed as a woodie. which it isn’t. Or Fury325 is marketed as a multi world record “fastest and tallest giga coaster” which it’s not. I’m just a purist and these things bother me.
  5. I too don’t consider Orion a giga. Orion is a multi world record hyper coaster. Longest drop, fastest, and longest brake run for a hyper coaster the world.
  6. I would love a floor less coaster addition especially a record holder. So far the recent B&M additions have been record breakers. Banshee being the longest invert, and Orionback having the longest brake run and longest drop for a hypercoaster.
  7. You are still sitting on a B&M floor less but there is no floor so your feet dangle over track. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floorless_Coaster
  8. I would love a B&M floor less even tho we have too many B&M’s with the addition of Orionback which I hoped wasn’t going to be a B&M.. Anything that fits the profile of Vortex would be nice. I’m not thrilled with the recent trend of entrenching on the woods or building were The Beast is. (Slaughterhouse and Orionback.)
  9. Toppler track is just Vekoma track with 2x4’s attached underneath the rails. Definitely a steel coaster.

    Check out the size of that brake run! We might have a record breaker on our hands folks! I’m absolutely ecstatic about B&M bringing their truly one of a kind coaster element to Kings Island!

    I hope our giga claims the longest brake run in the world from Leviathan! I figure the announcement video will somewhat go like this: Kings Island dares you to come face to face with The Beamer! The Beamer! 250ft of forever stopping brake power. At a 250ft deceleration attack on your senses. The Beamer leaves you yawning into your restraint system. Brakes you longer than any other coaster. Come face to face with The Beamer! The Beamer! the biggest, baddest, longest brake run in the world!

    I’m team X-base expansion w/ winged coaster. The argument that GateKeeper is overtly expensive is true, but most forget that GateKeeper’s price tag also included an entirely brand new main entrance into CP. KI could get a winged coaster roughly 15mil as an anchor for the new expansion. X-Flight was roughly 12-15mil when it was built in Six Flags Great America. A similar coaster would be fitting for an x-base expansion. Add restrooms, a flat ride like a gerstlauer sky roller. A lot of those buildings could be hidden in plain sight if the exteriors are re-themed. Military bases have warehouses. Slap an Area 18 logo on that water storage tank (Plays off the hanger 18 from FoF) as a centerpiece to the area. That way we can party likes it 1999 because this expansion would be much like how Action Zone came about. 1 coaster, 1 flat, and a water tower for a centerpiece.
  13. Somewhat off topic, but I think it would be cool if Kings Island could replace the Invertigo name, with Stinger.
