    Face Your Fears (Flight of Fear 1996 commercial)

    Yeah, same as you. The entire hangar was full along with the queues outside. Probably a 3 hour wait. We all felt like it was a great ride, but got even better once the OTSR's were removed.

    Face Your Fears (Flight of Fear 1996 commercial)

    I remember waiting in line for a long time to ride. It was worth the ride, although too much headbanging. I love metal music, and if I'm complaining about the headbanging, then it's way too much haha.
  3. None of the aforementioned are food items haha. I dig the boardwalk idea though. Last year after spending 3 days at CP, I finally took note of those abysmal dorms. Holy train wreck Batman. Looked ghetto fabulous.

    Racer Track Work 2019

    I am happy that Racer is getting re-tracked. I never found it too bumpy myself, but I'm sure that GCI will do some quality work. I am more than happy with Mystic Timbers. I think it met all expectations.

    Flat ride package?

    Delirium, maXair, Skyhawk, Power Tower, Drop Tower, Shake Rattle and Roll, Tiki Twirl, Troika would all beg to differ. Flat rides, water rides, and shows round out the experience. There are families that go for far more than coasters. My kid is a coaster junkie but loves all the aforementioned rides. He is also looking forward to the new flat in Old Coney.

    Flat ride package?

    I agree with both sentiments. Cedar Point's Skywheel looks great, but I don't see many people riding it any time I am there. I think a Tilt-A-Whirl is needed at KI as well. It's a classic fun ride that families can do together. I would also add in a new dark ride to replace Boo Blasters on Boo Hill.

    Markers at Cedar Point

    That estimate is nowhere near what the actual figure would be. Otherwise, they would have opted for a longer length of coaster. The mitigating factor was price in the coaster and to build a lift hill of 400 ft was not cost effective, so they opted for a launched coaster instead.

    Will Diamondback always be the tallest at KI?

    Maybe something people are overlooking is the fact that KI could potentially add a wing coaster or dive coaster in the area that Firehawk used to occupy. Now, would I be upset if KI goes with a giga coaster? Absolutely not, but there are other options out there that they could go with.

    Cedar Point running out of room.

    Those who know, don't speak. Those who speak, don't know.
  10. For the record, the Millennium Falcon had the first 3D Hologram game table.

    The Beast vs Mystic Timbers

    I like different aspects of each coaster. I enjoy The Beast's double helix, the multiple tunnels, secluded placement and night time rides. On the other hand, I like the quick directional and smooth changes of direction on Mystic Timbers. I also had a really good night ride this year. Plus I enjoy the first drop's design. I'm just happy that KI has a nice collection of world class coasters for me and my family to enjoy.

    Cedar Point running out of room.

    True, removing Wicked Twister would open up some room, but with such a small footprint, you can't fit much of anything in that area except maybe a flat ride. I don't really see them removing it though. I suppose if the yearly ridership numbers or maintenance warrants it, it will.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    Firehawk was never my favorite coaster, but I always loved the unique experience it gave. I was fortunate enough to ride it as X Flight at Geauga Lake. I did not experience GL under Six Flags ownership (as I had heard many people tell of terrible customer experience), but I went twice after Cedar Fair bought it. They did a great job with what they had to work with. Unfortunately, I don't think they could repair the damaged reputation that it obtained. A real shame too as I loved several coasters that resided there. Dominator, X Flight, Raging Wolf Bobs, Head Spin, Thunderhawk, The Villain, Big Dipper. They had a really nice water park to compliment it too. At least I have some good memories of that place and still have a Villain hat that I bought there.

    Favorite Past Ride

    In thinking about this topic, it's really hard for me to pick a favorite past ride. I enjoyed so many rides over the years that are no longer there. However, whether or not I would want those to return is an interesting question too. Past Favorites: The Bat, Zodiac, Bayern Curve, Son of Beast, Kenton Cove Keelboat Canal, Screamin' Demon, King Kobra, Tumble Bug, Les Taxi, Bavarian Beetle, Der Spinnin' Keggers, Enchanted Voyage, Flight Commander, Sky Ride, The Trams that brought you to the front gate, even though it's not a ride, The Rotor, the Hanna Barberra Land theme. Wow, I have seen plenty of rides come and go. Boy, I am old, haha. Glad to see the Antique Cars making a comeback. Probably a lot of people see it as a meh addition, but KI needs more rides that the entire family can do. I, for one, always wanted to "drive" the cars.

    Ability to become a Flagship Park

    While Cedar Point could certainly use more shade, it IS the flagship park. It takes in the most revenue and I don't see another park in the chain overtaking that designation any time soon. When I go to Cedar Point, it seems like there is so much more to do.
