  1. I didn't get the email and I can order it as long as I use the link provided. I'm not going to because it's not worth the increased price.
  2. I just don't see the value in upgrading from Gold to this.
  3. https://www.kingsislandgear.com/collections/kings-island-fashion-tees/products/blue-racer-tee
  4. https://www.coaster101.com/2020/09/28/bolliger-mabillard-files-patent-for-stand-up-coaster-restraint/ B&M seems to be possibly getting back in the Stand Up game.
  5. Stand Up enjoyability has a lot to do with knowing how to properly your seat and bars fitted.
  6. There is. B&M has a new model (Surf Coaster). https://www.coaster101.com/2020/09/28/bolliger-mabillard-files-patent-for-stand-up-coaster-restraint/
  7. I think expanding days is the answer. The only way a ride would do is if its multiple big rides in a single season opening (maybe) or some sort of insane record breaker like a 500ft+ coaster or worlds longest steel coaster. I don't think most new rides would do it. It'd have to be something that gets the entire global coaster enthusiast community talking.
  8. I'm picking up the hidden meaning. You don't want a gate coaster. You want twin racing gate coasters.
  9. Something that might work in a tight space and look gorgeous up front and probably only need the removal of Invertigo and maybe a few trees or Invertigo and Congo Falls or Invertigo and Timberwolf is a S&S – Sansei steel looping coaster like Steel Curtain or even their upcoming Axis Coaster which can be a lift hill or a LIM launch (this might take up even less room)
  10. I'm not sure if this used to be common practice but based on this photo King Cobra was painted on site. Thought it was interesting as it seems these days coaster parts are painted before they arrive to the park.

  11. It's for our new B&M Surf Coaster. It's the station house for the new King Cobra located on The Vortex land. /s
  12. This is an existing thread from September 2020. It's the oldest thread and first one that came up when I searched. I see a much newer one opened after this one.
  13. Get the Corkscrew section of Vortex and spray it gold (golden anniversary) and place it at the entrance. Expand an existing area like Area 72 with a new place to eat, bathrooms, flat rides, shop, and game area. Bring back the old school epic parades and hot air balloons for a few weeks in the summer. Backwards Racer for 1 year only. Have the Executive Chef prepare a special menu or food items inspired by Kings Island's history. Set up the 3D theater and its queue as a temporary museum of Kings Island history with a mini movie Something with the kids area (no idea what) Cut a deal to bring back the classic Hana Barbara characters for 1 season.
  14. Clearly this means it's a lawn care themed coaster. Also it's green. /s
  15. There are coasters with larger front seats?
  16. Saw this on a random instagram page that has nothing to do with theme parks or Cincinnati.
  17. In it's prime Vortex was a fun fantastic thrill worth many repeat rides. Towards the end of it's life it was in my opinion the roughest or one of the roughest rides in the park. People call The Beast rough but it's just a jiggle. Vortex would slam you constantly at the end. Only rollercoaster I've ever had break sunglasses on. Also the only coaster rough enough to have ever caused me physical pain afterwards. It got to the point I didn't ride for the last year or two of when I had my pass. Overall I loved The Vortex but not The Vortex we had at the end.
  18. Before the pandemic hit I bought a heavily discounted ticket during the President's Day Sale and a Fast Lane. I rode this ride 3 times. My only regret was I never spent anytime in line so I didn't get to see much of the "hangar" or whatever you'd call it before you go up the steps. Because you're moving so quickly in the Fast Lane and you don't want to hold up those behind you. Typically a ride doesn't scare me. I don't have a fear of heights. I have a fear of what I call unsecured heights. My first ride was in the front row. That first view from top gave me a momentary "oh ****" feeling. After that I was good. Absolutely thrilling ride. Dunno why it did that to me. I've been on Top Thrill Dragster and other taller coasters.
  19. Can KI replace the trains on The Racer with new ones without losing any historical status of the coaster?
  20. Same. I was excited when I saw this. I only remember riding Flight Commander once or twice.
  21. This YouTube channel retells the stories of real life stories that happened. They've done probably 5 or so on amusement parks and even covered the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire (located in NKY for those unaware).
  22. I miss King Cobra. I've always hoped someone would bring back improved stand up coasters. I doubt it'll happen though.
  23. This is a test model. The trains would be longer. If you watch the video the track can be re-purposed meaning different train later on if desired. Plus you can do air launch or lift hill. They assume most will have a lift hill since they're cheaper. What issues did those coasters have? First of I've heard of this.
