  1. Never thought of that. That would be one amazing ride.
  2. No I come for any record holder, new or old. Now, that's not to say I don't enjoy non-record holders it's that, for me, there's about 4 coasters at KI that still have a kick to them. And I just what KI to get more extreme rides in like CP. But I guess it's all in due time. Also, I too have some sentiment when it comes to older rides. I don't want to see them go as long as they are thrilling. For example, I would be devasted if they got rid of Vortex, but I wouldn't care if they demolished Adventure Express.
  3. I come to parks exclusively for the thrill rides. You say people like me will get bored with them and move on. I ride The Beast as often as I can and I never get tired with it.
  4. You got me there, I'll give you that. But KI still has it listed under thrill rides
  5. Sorry I meant any thrill ride. 2007-Firehawk 2009-Diamondback 2011-WindSeeker 2014-Banshee Only two to three years difference
  6. Yes, if the past is a reference, then they'll get a new coaster in 2016 or 2017. Which isn't too far away.
  7. I hope KI decides to get a giga coaster in the next few years.
  8. Everyone has their own preferences with rollercoasters. To me, it seems that you like the intermidiate coasters. However, I will go on anything no matter what the size. That's why I hope KI gets a giga coaster or something bigger in the near future.
  9. In my perfect world, coasters would be added every year. But I realize the problems that would follow.
  10. They are already in financial disaster, do you know how much they are in debt? Alot. They weren't very smart with their money. Yes, they are in debt, financial disaster? No. If they were in financial disaster, they'd be selling off all but a few parks or the parks would be going into foreclosure. They may have taken on too much when they acquired Paramount Parks, but it was either all or none. They saw the potential for growth both in portfolio and in finances (yes even some loss helps gain). Only one at Kings Island? Diamondback (1), Banshee (2). You have seemed to miss the point that C
  11. I'm just saying that CP has gotten alot of major record breakers and with Cedar Fair over Kings Island there's only been one. I'm not bashing KI, I love them, however I feel like they can definently do better.

  13. I am genuinely curious to know what land they have to work with unless something is destroyed. And Paramount Parks would have eventually gotten coasters just like or even bigger than the three you stated. Under them KI got Flight of Fear, Son of Beast and other world class rides. Obviously they had no problem testing the limits. Now don't get me wrong, Banshee and Diamondback are the two best rides in the park next to The Beast. But under Paramount, they didn't worry about if it would affect other parks because they didn't have favorites.
  14. I didn't know Kings Island was ever "off" the map. I'm just saying that when you put in things like WindSeeker although CP also put it in. Thrill seekers would rather go to Cedar Point than KI. I just don't see KI going anywhere with Cedar Fair owning them. CP is their top priority but sooner or later they'll run out of space unless they replace coasters. KI has space to create whole new sections.
  15. Although Banshee is good ride, Kings Island needs something to really put them back on the map. To be honest, Diamondback isn't really that tall in comparison to the giga and strata coasters out there. I would like to see a giga coaster come to Kings Island in the next couple of years. Something fast, like over 90 mph and maybe it could be the longest steel coaster in the world; they could name it 'Steel Beast' or something in The Beast family. I've been going to Kings Island my whole life and although it will always be my favorite park,it's losing some of it's sting with the intensity of the
