  1. Personally, I'd like to see another park receive this coaster. I enjoyed it a lot. Will be interesting to see what future expansion will be in its place.
  2. @IBEW_Sparky , my experience with Thunderhawk was that it was just an ok coaster, but I never found it to be rough. I never rode it under 6F operations though. I do consider it to be the poor man's invert. B&M is the superior, obviously.
  3. I would love to see some more flat rides added. I think everyone should make suggestions as to what they would like to see added. Also, let's refrain from telling anyone their suggestions are dumb, etc. Let's keep it light and friendly. Just on a personal note, there are some definite classic flats that I miss. They would not necessarily be on the level of Delirium or Drop Tower. The Rotor, Bayern Curve and Tumble Bug. Also, I would not mind seeing a giant swing like Skyhawk added.
  4. I was just thinking about how far KIC has come and the changes that it has gone through. There was a lot of learning on the fly, but it's been handled well. Not sure when the KIC anniversary is, but it should be celebrated. 

  5. @Browntggrr, back when I took a trip to Cedar Point around 2000, the guy I went with said he like Mantis, but his legs were really sore after riding.
  6. I only rode Disaster Transport. I found it boring and uninspired.
  7. I never had issues with either the Togo or B&M stand up coasters. I liked the B&M's better as they seemed to do a lot more. I don't think you will see any new ones as it was a fad that has died out.
  8. I like your Avatar pic. I did something similar on The Beast in 2019, but I did not purchase the on-ride photo. Looking back, I wish I had.

     

    Have a good day!

  9. That is fantastic! Love seeing these types of photos of KI history. On a side note, my son thinks it's hilarious yet cool that I've been attending KI for 49 years. I was a year old the 1st time I was taken there.
  10. So, we are narrowed down to these options: Gigashed Gigastorage Gigafreestyle
  11. I haven't been on Congo Falls in years. I have noticed that there isn't much ridership as well. Even if you leave Timberwolf and Invertigo out of the equation, it opens up enough space for a nice flat ride to go in there.
  12. I received a copy of your book for my birthday, which is coming up on the 16th of this month. I have not read any of it as of yet, but I will dig into it soon. I'll let you know what I think. My brother bought it for me (and one for himself). I was just asking him the other day if the author was on KIC. I had forgotten about this thread, only to come on here today and see you discussing it on here.
  13. I'm thinking it's to cover up the fact that they plan on adding a giga bathroom.
  14. I fully agree with you on that. I don't think taller will be the next coaster addition or in the next few. Experiences are getting different all the time. Could be a Gerstlauer Infinity coaster that goes into Vortex's old spot. Could also be several other options that they can go with...dive, wing, or multi-launch, etc. It will be interesting to see what comes next.
  15. I know from prior experience that some of the roughness can be attributed to the wheels on the trains. If you catch it when the wheels are particularly more worn, the ride seems a bit more rough. Otherwise, I've had good rides on FOF, even as recently as last season.
