  1. Flat Ride at KI

    Just rode Tiki Twirl for the first time this year at Cedar Point. That ride is a total blast. I am adding that one to my above post.
  2. Flat Ride at KI

    I think a Tilt-A-Whirl would be a great addition for Planet Snoopy. I am hoping we see a return of Antique Cars. Would also like to see Boo Blasters re-done. That one hasn't had a makeover in years. I also would like to see a ride like Sledgehammer at CW as well. Something like Tiki Twirl at Cedar Point. Added this one as I had forgotten about it until JubJester reminded me.
  3. Improving Que Lines

    I also understand that times have changed. Apparently, with those changes comes the FunTV to "entertain" people while in line. I admit that I watch a little. Mostly to catch the temperature and current weather conditions. On my trip to Cedar Point this year, on our 2nd day there, we did not have Fast Lane as it did not make sense as we would leave that day at 5:00 to head home. So, we get in line for Millennium Force, which was a 30 minute wait. My son (8 years old mind you) complained the entire time while in line as to how long we had to wait. I remember the first time I went to CP, which was 2000, when MF was brand spankin' new. My brother and I waited for an hour and a half to ride on both a Saturday and Sunday. We were extremely pleased at how short our wait was because both times when we exited, the sign said 3 hour wait. Now in his defense, at 8 years old, 30 minutes translates to 3 hours .
  4. Improving Que Lines

    I guess I am just different, but when I grew up and waited 3 hours for The Beast, I didn't need some kind of entertainment while waiting in line. We had no TV's in line. We (gasp) talked to each other. Personally, I don't believe there will be expenditures on the lines as they are unless it's more shade on some of the lines that lack any. Beyond that, I just don't see it happening. On another note, I truly hope an antique car ride is coming to KI. If not, I think their next major project should be to re-do Boo Blasters on Boo Hill
  5. That KIC Look - New Shirt Ideas

    I like this design as well. Thrill Biscuit...always coming through.
  6. What will replace Dinos Alive?

    What is located at Cedar Point and Kings Island have zero to to with each respective park. Both have a capital expenditure plan that places what they feel is best at each park. Otherwise, you wouldn't have a WindSeeker at each nor would you have Delirium and maXair (identical rides) at each one, or Raptor and Banshee (same manufacturer and type). The reason is probably more like reliability and marketability. Since they don't draw a lot from the same markets, it hardly matters that Kings Island and Cedar Point would both have an Intamin Giga. The general public is really none the wiser anyway.
  7. That KIC Look - New Shirt Ideas

    I would be down for buying a KIC t shirt. Love the green colored shirt posted earlier.
  8. Red Track spotted at Batavia Steel Plant

    I like the orange color of that track. Cool name as well. Really interested to try a dive machine. I will get my chance next summer on my trip to Cedar Point to ride Valravn. My kid will finally be big enough to ride or I would have taken a lap this year. Which is something that has me really excited for next summer. He will be able to ride 6 new coasters next year at CP; GateKeeper, Wicked Twister, Steel Vengeance, Maverick, Dragster, and Valravn. Plus, he will be big enough to ride maXair.
  9. Being that Zimmerman was Ouimet's right hand man, I think we can expect more of the same.
  10. I was saying December just because of the Christmas comment. Not being literal. Guess that was lost in translation. Anyhoo, I ain't gettin' up in arms about it.
  11. Is this Kings Islands 2018 ride?

    I think you guys could be right. However, if one of these is added, I won't be too mad.
  12. If they think it could be testing in December, then I would go with that. This project has gone on well long enough to have the trains ready by then.
  13. What will replace Dinos Alive?

    What ultimately is the driving factor is what will bring people through the gates to spend money. It could be a giga. It could be something for the families who spend waaaayyyy more than the enthusiast crowd. I am not against a giga at all, as evidenced by my previous posts (at least those who know me). I would love to see an Intamin giga at that. Anyway, the bottom line is, what will increase CF's bottom line.

  15. That makes the most sense Shaggy. Let the park employees monitor the situation and security deal with the unruly guests.
