  1. It would make more sense for Invertigo to change its name to Screamin' Demon if they want to rename it. Similar concept. (Going forward and backward) and relatively same area. Screamin' Demon was my first "big" ride. I remember being terrified. My daughter would laugh about being afraid of that ride. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Worked better than mine! I got all sorts of colors I didn't know existed popping up on the trains when I tried to replace color the track, so I just did it to the supports and painted the track.I'd like to see a nice big chrome Bat logo on the front car and the previously mentioned bell tower theming on the station. I never got why this ride wasn't a flagship for this park but Firehawk was. This thing KILLS Firehawk in every respect and I see no reason why the t-shirts that have the park's flagships sometimes have Diamondback, The Beast, sometimes Vortex, now Banshee, but Firehawk instead of Flight Deck. I think this could bring back some popularity for the ride next season. And I REALLY wish Kings Island would update their website. Even a bad Photoshop like the Gatekeeper/Bat one would be nice on the front page. Why would Kings Island have the Gate Keeper on its front page? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Perhaps they expect long wait times. Sometimes I people think life is like the Rav 4 Genie commercial. "Poof" longer ride. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I will look into it. The organization we made cards for is no longer doing it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Just asking because during my visit to the tower on Sunday I was talking to her and another attendant but she was telling me all about how much of an enthusiast her boyfriend is and that she knows "way too much" about Kings Island. Her and the other attendant at the top of the tower were genuinely nice people to talk to. We met her at the Eiffel Tower before the group meeting. I thought she was fabulous. I asked her about the boy who was killed at the Eiffel Tower and she said she couldn't comment haha! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I love the Bilbo snickers comment. Hahaha Ok, being new here, I am ignorant of sorts. I presume you are military? Air Force? Are you being deployed? If you are deploying. I will need your address, please. We support our service men and women! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Honestly, since CF bought the property it has continuously improved. Customer Service, cleanliness, etc. I think they do value their customers. I think just acknowledging the fan backing in why they opted to change the name to The Bat speaks volumes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The Bat

    I've rarely called it Flight Deck (most rides I call by whatever old name they used to be). Calling it The Bat may be easier. Maybe. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I had a feeling this would come around much later in the off season.
  10. The Beast. Last public train ride for the 2013 season. Was torn between that and Diamondback. Either way is a great way to end the year.
  11. The park is nearly naked. It has been such a very sad week. 178 days, 20 hours, 41 minutes to go.
  12. All I know is my daughter asked if she could ride it. I figured it was her prelude to wanting to do a polar plunge this winter.
  13. Does anyone know what the winners have had as far as decibels? I know I screamed last week - not my loudest scream to my daughters shame and embarrassment. I was at 127.7. I think the gal that won Friday night was at 140, but I may have heard incorrectly. Many of the men sound like they are in mating season. I am sure it's a great sound if you are a moose, but not if you are a man.
  14. We loved the Wolf Pack. I think it was the best. I also enjoyed the Train One (the name of the ride escapes me.) Madame Fatale's we liked really well, too. Last Friday night, the crowds were not horrible over all (aside from Beast and Diamond Back). I am hoping with cooler/cold temps it will be not as busy as last week.
