  1. We also know how well they do enforcing the rules anyway.
  2. I just subscribed to the channel and look forward to some great content. Also, as a reminder, don't just subscribe to the channel. Make sure you click that bell to be notified the instant that new content is uploaded.
  3. I'd rather we get a ride like Laff Trak at Hersheypark. I rode their Wild Mouse and although some of it was fun, I had to brace myself against the middle bar as my knee kept getting banged by it. I wouldn't call it a wild mouse, but I remember being very fond of Bavarian Beetle in KI's early years.
  4. @SonofBaconator, completely agree with some of that. Millennium Force has a nice capacity, albeit that is only anecdotal in evidence as more of them do not have the capacity as claimed, as you pointed out. As far as other Intamin installations, I wasn't even considering Hagrid's. I just know that they are a lot more active outside of the U.S. With Dragster, I think the technology was rushed into use. I know that Intamin had used that kind of technology before TTD, but not on that scale. It's a lot more of a complex issue than just building a more powerful launch to cover the extreme heig
  5. Fun pix is a great idea and one that I have used before. After exiting a ride, you can view your photo, give the number that corresponds to your photo to the employee there. They bring it up and then scan your lanyard. At the end of your day, you can go to guest services to print them out or you can actually print them out at home. I thought it was well worth the money. So sorry that you are going through this.
  6. You are most welcome. I noticed some neat looking items too. One that caught my eye appears to be a light up picture that looks like a firework.
  7. I mentioned that fact to my mother. I was totally shocked to see 2 maintenance people on either side of a moving train myself. Then again, in those days, you could take an 8mm camera on coasters.
  8. Thanks @TombraiderTy! I think you are correct in that. As I watched this again, it is much easier to see on this forum than on my phone. I started noticing that it seems that some of the video may have been mashed together of another year. At the 10:03 mark, the lady sitting down with a baby on her lap is my mother and I. To her left is my uncle, so I am not sure who was videoing at the time. To the right of him is my late grandmother. At the 23:20 mark, the video on the carousel is my brother. On another note, I wish his other film was not lost. I specifically remember my uncle filming h
  9. Last night, my uncle sent me a video from what we think might be the opening year of Kings Island. Unfortunately, there isn't any sound. It's still a cool video in my book. My uncle was the one that took this video. He said the last time he moved, he lost a bunch of his old home movies, but found this one. He had it digitized so that he didn't lose the one remaining that he has. Hope everyone enjoys. I know I did, as it was a look back into my first time attending Kings Island. 0382376755.mp4
  10. Considering RMC introduced the T Rex track 6 years ago and have yet to fully develop/sell said model, I can see Intamin easily beating them to the punch. Maybe it's because they've been in the industry a while and are a more trusted name with considerably more installations. I'm not really sure. Just a guess. And yes, Intamin is still very much active and trusted company, even though Cedar Fair does not feel that way.
  11. So, it appears that Intamin is interested in the single rail coaster concept, but also adding their own design ideas. I ran across this video on YouTube where there design ideas are discussed along with the TRex design of RMC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb80vFNOsb4 Competition is always a good thing and will benefit the coaster community and the general public.
  12. Due to this year's pandemic, I am wondering if CF plans on adding much in the way of rides throughout the chain? Many of these parks did not get to really cash in on their recent investments that would have helped their attendance. This also begs the question about 2021 in general with the SF chain or even independent parks. I see someone posted a cool video of a coaster being added to Silverwood, which is what caused me to think about this subject. Side note: I did end up taking a trip to KI, reluctantly. It was as miserable experience as could be expected under the current condit
  13. That and you would have one more Dippin' Dots guy who can let us know future ride installments at KI.
