  1. Gift horse? How is Kings Island giving a gift to us by having less operating hours than last year or (still) more than Cedar Point? Kings Island provides a park and we decide whether it's worth going to for x amount of money. I don't see anything wrong with expressing a little criticism, a paying customer has an amount of discretionary income and businesses have to compete for it.
  2. This is something I've been wanting them to do for sometime. Will they do it? I seriously doubt it. If they ever did it i would imagine it would be a a part of a large renovation/expansion that would include getting rid of Timberwolf.

    Racer 2019?

    I have to imagine it would run better with Millennium Flyers than those track shredding three bench PTC's.
  4. I don't know if you know this but just in case, the Gravity Group which was formed from the ashes of CCI which itself was formed from the ashes of the Dinn Corporation is currently located in West Chester.
  5. As someone who has wished this very thing would happen on these boards, you have my support.
  6. 1. Tear it down and replace it with a dedicated prefab steel building. 2. Add classy looking graffiti on the side of the building for good measure a la Club Blood. 3. Make it a "premium" haunt.
  7. If theming somehow became important again to the powers that be, I'd like to see all of what used to be known as Action Zone absorbed into Oktoberfest with a full retheme.
  8. I'd love to see the station reused for some future coaster. The handicap accessibility issue did cross my mind. I don't know how the rules would apply in this case. I remember they had to widen the Shake Rattle and Roll line, on the other hand Cedar Point re-used the White Water Landing line and station for Maverick.
  9. I rode the new Zamperla Endeavor at Kentucky Kingdom. It is everything good about the Enterprise, but better. Better view (less nausea and more enjoyable) and legs dangle. I definitely would approve of one being installed at KI.
  10. Since we do not know the fate of The Vortex station, (I'd love to see it re-used someday), I'd very much appreciate if someone could do a video like this for Vortex.
  11. Thank you for posting these pictures! I'm completely confused now. Are there still two levels in the station house and one is not used? I have never noticed it if that is the case.
  12. @Rivertown Rider In theory with a healthy investment Oktoberfest could just absorb Action Zone since it is just generic amusement park these days. I'd really like to see a return to better developed themes for the areas. I had high hopes for the now concluded Ouimet Era in this regard to more avail.
  13. I'm really impressed by the fact that Kahn's and Rainbo made sausages and bread respectively IN the park. Also the German food selection in the Bier Garten is impressive. Why not try this at the park again? I think it'd be a hit! Think like Busch Gardens!
  14. I like to be blown away by a coaster when riding one the first couple times. I'm more than willing to put up with downtime in exchange for a fantastic ride. RMC and CCI/Gravity Group are my idea of what a coaster should be. They don't let up (and sometimes get more intense), until they hit the brakes. Examples of their brilliance are the seemingly 20 straight seconds of reverse banking on Legend and the "top gun stall" on Twisted Colossus.
  15. In an ideal world I would choose an independent to run KI as their only business. No one treats a business better than an independent operator who would treat the park as his or her baby. If I had to choose an existing amusement park company it would either be Herschend or Busch Parks/Sea World. I would probably lean towards Herschend since I believe their parks are more similar to KI than Sea World/Busch's parks are.
