  1. That new piece that was added today, looks like the one that goes over the ravine.
  2. Here's some pics from WeatherBug Kings Island cam, showing the star changing, during the night. And another pic showing the park getting ready for Winterfest, in the snow!
  3. They must have just got the cam back on in the last 20 or so minutes, I checked it around 9. This looks awesome! Hello Orion!
  4. I hope we get to see the 2nd hill done while WinterFest is going on! This is going to look awesome!
  5. ^^Yes. It was showing up for me when you posted it the first time, so no trouble here watching the video. Can’t wait to see this in person at WinterFest!
  6. Great pics! What a great day for us KI fans!
  7. Those are some great pictures @Waltny!
  8. I just saw it too on WeatherBug cam! So exciting!
  9. I agree the main webcams being down is a bummer, because they're the closest to Orion's construction. But we still have a webcam up showing Orion's progress, the most important part as well! Be happy for that! Yes it's farther away, but we can tell what's going on, good enough, when something big happens, there is usually someone there pretty quick to snap some pictures for us. We just have to adjust to this way of doing it for awhile, then the cams will be back. It's not that bad.
  10. Looks like they're right on time for when they said it would be topped off! Really exciting!
  11. Are you there right now or just watching the WeatherBug cam? I would guess at the speed they're going, the lucky day might be Friday, to be topped off, if the rain isn't to much of a problem. I hope the next support piece is put up today also!
  12. I was looking at places to go eat, found the Snow Day Buffet, it doesn't say where its at though. Has anyone here had it before, and where its located? Thanks
  13. I'll miss it, for sure. I remember my first ride on it, I couldn't believe how many loops it had!! I kept thinking 'okay that's the last loop, nope another, then another'. This has been a roller coaster ride of a year! RIP Vortex, say hi to Firehawk, SoB, etc.
  14. Just found this, now they're saying the plan to buy Cedar Fair was just a rumor..
  15. Can’t wait to see some new pics tonight!
  16. It looks like it was taken in the area of Soak City, or from in that direction.
  17. It sounds like Chad is talking to someone, and says "We plan to do a couple more ????? in December", hope he is talking about tours!
  18. I saw people talking on the Kings Island Seasonal Pass Holder Facebook page, about how busy it was last night, and someone said it was a record at 62,000! Was anyone there last night?
  19. Could Six Flags get a loan or something to help push another offer up, if they really wanted too (I hope not)? Would any bank be willing to give them, that much money? I like how Cedar Fair is run a lot better then Six Flags, and how SF does ride announcements just seems cheap to me, announcing everything all together in a video online..... Screams cheap!
  20. Happy Orion 1st of October Construction Morning KIC! Here's a picture I just took, I saw a truck delivering something, so I took a quick screenshot!
  21. Sad to see it go, but I stopped riding it a few years ago, its just so rough... These past few years has seen some big changes in the park, some that people have loved, and some have not. I hope they keep as many tree's as possible when the demolishing of Vortex begins.
  22. This is sad to hear, I went there in 2016, it is a nice little park. I saw a few people are asking KI to save some of the rides, I hope they do but I don't count on it. Some people are asking CF/KI to buy the large Ferris Wheel, but isn't the large Ferris Wheel not owned by CI? It is just there for a few weeks I believe. I know they have a smaller one, Eli Bridge one, maybe KI can buy it. The large Ferris Wheel is really nice, and would look beautiful added to the KI skyline.
  23. New pic from @KingsIslandPR on Twitter!
  24. Here's a video from WCPO talking about Kings Island's new Orion Giga coaster. Looks like KI beat Mystic Timbers announcement of people there, they say 2,000 people was there! Awesome!
