  1. So if you look back at KI over the past decade or so, in 2009 Diamondback was an excuse to renovate Rivertown, 2011's WindSeeker was an excuse to renovate Coney Mall, 2014's Banshee allowed them to renovate Action Zone, last year they renovated part of Planet Snoopy. As of lately, they went back to Rivertown for Mystic Timbers. Oktoberfest is really the only major section of the park that's been skipped over, and not much has been done for it as of recently. This leads me to think that it will be the next section of the park to receive a major, major facelift. Some things they could do in
  2. Wait, what's this? Is that like a replacement for a height wristband or something?
  3. You simply cannot control a Canada Goose, they're just too horrible. Know someone who's gotten rid of one and lived to tell about it? Exactly.
  4. Yes! That's the fourth one I heard, I wasn't just imagining that! That's certainly true!
  5. At a coaster count of 253, this ranks at #9 combined and #4 wood (behind Lightning Rod, Outlaw Run, and The Voyage) for me. It's absolutely ballistic, theming is extremely appropriate and gives off quite the vibe, and it all fits perfectly in an awesome location. Love the airtime and aggressive tossing on the layout too, my favorite part was towards the end just before the shed where it skips along the water. Overall I think it's the best coaster in Ohio but not the best in the tri-state (that honor goes to Storm Chaser), and I really really like it. The shed? It did what the park markete
  6. Not sure exactly where to put this so here goes! I have decided to do one more thing with my construction photos and media day photos for Mystic Timbers, combining them into an inspirational slideshow showing the coaster's journey from dirt and survey stakes to a modern marvel of engineering and technology. It's two songs and still photos, but seeing the coaster take shape like that I find to be amazing.
  7. One thing I believe is worth noting is that the projector screens in the shed can certainly be changed. Canada's Wonderland does it with WMG (goes from the dragon movie to zombies for Halloween Haunt) so for Winterfest or Haunt or any events where Timbers runs they could easily customize it. I'd love to see zombies or some guy with a chainsaw for Haunt!
  8. The first two I believe are originals of the songs, that last one in the Coaster Studios POV I don't believe is the original of that song, couldn't find that cover when I looked for it. Think there might have been one more that was an instrumental riff (you've probably all heard it and would know it instantly but I don't know the name of that song) but I can't be sure. I want to see them add Never Gonna Give You Up just so there can actually be a Rickroll in the shed. Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell or We Built This City by Starship I could see working with that ambiance a bit too, esp
  9. I don't need to explain Mystic Timbers to anyone here, we're KIC and I know we've all been excited for it. To be honest, when it was announced I wasn't expecting much from it. However, as the wood began to take over Rivertown and just the sheer scale of some of these things in relation to others became clear, I knew we had something special on our hands. As a massive fan of some of GCI's more violent creations such as Thunderhead and SFA's Roar, I could tell this had a shot at being my favorite. When it was announced that ACE was invited to Media Day, I knew I had to do it. The initial pl
  10. The drop track probably isn't possible anymore even with the sloped blocks because they're sloped at such negligible angles that it wouldn't add probably two feet to that level. All it has to do is throw in a bit of a forward gravitational force vector onto the train to gradually pull it through, not give it any actual speed. RMC does this too. The slope can be nearly negligible to the naked eye and design constraints, it won't give them enough room for a drop track from what I'm seeing.
  11. ^Yes and no. If it had a really high station like Banshee or maybe even Diamondback, it could have a substantial drop. But it doesn't, the track installed shows the exact station elevation and there's no way it could stay within rendering and have enough height for a considerable drop at all.
  12. I think we're looking at a show scene akin to Wonder Mountain's Guardian in the shed featuring our good foliage friend Oakley from the logo.
  13. I noticed something when I was there getting pictures on Sunday. The number on the left is obviously the pre-lift bit, notice how it pretty much dead indicates the level of the station track. This is shown to be level with the shed in the shed rendering, so that should be the level of the shed because if A=B and B=C, A=C. Now look how low that is, if that's a drop track it's the lamest drop track ever and a massive waste of money. Got the rest of the pictures I took on my blog if you're interested but that's the biggest thing from my construction update.
  14. http://www.aceonline.org/fliers/Fall-o-ween2016.pdf There's an event at Kings Island the day before but on the 16th ACE will be having an event at Coney Island! Will any other KIC members be there? We get ERT on Python, the Top Spin, and Rock-O-Planes, buffet, a mini golf tournament, ride takeovers, and more! Who else plans to be there?
  15. Can't wait to see this bad boy in person Sunday when I go! I plan to spend some time observing the construction and taking pictures if anybody wants to meet up and join me, maybe we could make a joint update or something? If anything someone come say hi! Can't wait to see it, though. Hoping to get some perspective on this project fairly soon.
