  1. I’m indifferent to fast passes. I’ve never purchased one, granted I’m fortunate enough with my work schedule I’m able to go to the park on their slower days.
  2. Update on the return / refund. Still no reply from Kings Island gear about my order being broken upon arrival. I used the email link provided regarding questions to my order and have sent 2 emails so far with no reply. Frustrating non the less.
  3. The stablemates came in the mail today. Unfortunately Lew Brown was broken from the base of the locomotive and track upon on arrival. I’m currently in the process of getting a refund and or replacement. Other than that they look great! $19.99 is great value! I didn’t take them out of their plastic coverings yet, still waiting on refund / replacement for Lew Brown (Green train):
  4. As soon as I saw this posted on Facebook, I ordered the pair. Should be receiving them sometime this week!
  5. I wouldn’t mind if The Racer got reprofiled in places were ride experience would be improved, if anything it should be done. The jackhammering experience on my back while riding The Racer is one of the main reasons I avoid riding it, which is saying a lot considering 3 of my top 5 coasters are woodies. (Beast, Voyage, and Mystic.)
  6. I too, hope not! The only coaster that I have noticed that will operate way past closing due to a long line for the most part has to be The Beast during haunt. Nothing beats a 1:30am ride on The Beast in an eerily quiet park.
  7. I really can’t picture an Area 72 (x-base) expansion. Maybe a small expansion, which would require tearing down and moving maintenance buildings, but even then that only makes room for a flat ride or two and a couple concession stands. I’d say with the addition of Orion, Area 72 (x-base) was pretty much capped off. A hypothetical Area 72 (x-base) expansion in my opinion would’ve run parallel with The Racer and would’ve looped back into Coney Mall where the Action Theater is. This is what I’d imagine it would roughly look like: (Granted I added my own twist being that Action Theater is rethemed as the Hawkins lab in Stranger Things.)
  8. #1 The Beast #2 Mystic Timbers #3 Diamondback #4 The Bat #5 Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad
  9. I was disappointed when our Giga was going to be a B&M, I was hoping for a Intamin Giga or the worlds first Mack Giga. Mainly because I believe their are better manufactures out there to produce such ride. Not that I wouldn’t want a B&M coaster, I really do like the idea of a Wing Coaster in a future Area-72 expansion. I also would love to see a B&M floorless similar to Dominator taking up Vortex’s plot, seems only fitting. IMO.
  10. I choose The Bat. Vekoma designed floorless swinging suspended trains to replace old Arrow swinging suspended trains. There are currently 2 being used on Vampire at Chessington Worlds of Adventure.
  11. I hope not. I’d rather see another multi looping coaster take The Vortex’s old spot. A B&M floorless coaster like Dominator would fit that bill:
  12. RMC’s are about as reliable as they are made out of wood... They’re not.
  13. A good looking engine indeed. I wonder if Levi will keep that look after its refurbishment. I’m hoping they are going to swap those horrendous tanks out with tanks that are more original to Crown, assuming they want both engines to be able to share parts.
  14. Speaking of an additional train there are other Crowns out their that are waiting to once breath life again. Here is one with a rare Caboose built by crown for wheelchairs. They would need to take a coach from Lew Brown and Kenny Van Meter to make them all 5 car trains. Photo credit: https://klaq.com/where-the-train-from-magic-landing-is-permanently-parked-at/
