  1. This is good news. I wonder if Fastlane will also return or will it be like last summer where only season pass holders who bought that add on are allowed to use Fastlane?
  2. I voted Orion as well. This is truly a fantastic coaster addition for KI.
  3. Not sure I can pick a favorite memory. On the one hand, my first ride was with my mother and it's a great memory that I have of us going together as a family. On the other hand, riding Vortex with my son his first time was really memorable as well. He had talked about how much he wanted to ride it and The Beast. Then, when we began riding, he decided he wasn't going to. Once I got him to ride The Beast, we weren't even out of the exit when he told me that he was thinking about The Vortex. I told him that we could walk over there and look at it and then decide if he wanted to ride. Without hesi
  4. I would say, without a doubt, CF would have invested in Geauga Lake, but it would be more closer to the level of Michigan's Adventure as opposed to KI or CP. I think they would have received more of an investment than MA, but far less than KI or CP. I think it's a shame that it did not become more of a locals park. The residents certainly did not support it, or it would not have been closed.
  5. My brother has been on Copperhead Strike and he says it's fantastic. I would not be mad if KI installed a Mack. However, with the popularity of B&M Dive and Wing Coasters, either would also be a great fit.
  6. We also know how well they do enforcing the rules anyway.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. @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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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
