  1. From what I've heard, the rides spinning motion isn't sickening enough to where it's a throw up immediately type of roller coaster, honestly, I think a Mack Xtreme Spinner would be a great fit for KI, or a launched infinity coaster.
  2. It's been a long time since Vekoma has built a Mad House, I can't see it. (Vekoma now lists where all they are on their website: https://www.vekoma.com/mad-house)
  3. Twisted Timbers has those pouches but they really had an effect on the ride's operation. I'm hoping that this will work out but at the same time I'm just not sure.
  4. I don't think Kings Island "needs" a Giga Coaster to succeed and it's more of a "want" than anything. I think to fill the gaps in KI's ride lineup like a new modern launch coaster like Copperhead Strike or Blue Fire is far more important than getting a Giga. In Park Experience upgrades like special events and food are far more important in my opinion right now rather than a new roller coaster right now, and I think there will be more bang for the buck there from a business standpoint too.
  5. Banshee has sand in it. I remember hearing it in an interview somewhere back in 2014.
  6. Rest in peace old friend, I'll never forget you.

    Racer 2019?

    Thunder Run was retracked by Amuse this past year, they've done work at Mount Olympus this off season, and they did Apocalypse's last major refurbishment at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

    Racer 2019?

    I'm actually quite opposite with Racer vs Rebel Yell/Racer 75. I prefer Racer by a bit, it seems like The Gravity Group smoothed over any moments to get airtime, at least when I rode it last month, Racer still has some airtime, but it's a bit rougher, so there is a trade off. I think Thunder Road was the best of all of them, it gave great airtime and was very smooth a month before it closed.
  9. Looking forward to more detail! I'll hopefully be down there when the park opens.
  10. Personally I think this is a great idea, it'll act as an anchor to bring season pass holders in, while giving guests something else to do.
  11. Better make sure those have an open cabin design and not enclosed without AC... @Disney
  12. Gerstlauer has been used for some projects, but not a ton of projects, I think their last coaster they put in was Spinning Dragons at Worlds of Fun, then as for flat rides they installed a Skyroller at Canada's Wonderland in 2016.
  13. I think the idea of "paying homage" to The Beast is ridiculous and is just brought up over and over again despite being a PR disaster last time, so personally, I think it's unrealistic that we will ever have a "Beast" themed coaster again.
  14. I want what Parc Asterix is getting personally, but I'd be very satisfied with a Mack LSM or Xtreme Spinner.
