    Future plans for Firehawk's station discussion

    Probably bathrooms (not likely, honestly), or a 2019 smoking station. ;-)

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    "service life" is an economic phrase, usually. As opposed to "end of life". Just sayin'. I don't know what the park has in mind, but I also don't think their statement implies the ride cannot be sold, and fired up somewhere else.

    Sure can! It's up to the scare actor though.

    Last year they had the animatronic dude between Racer and Subway "on" on Sundays. Telling jokes, farting, and so on. I've been 2 Sundays this Autumn, and...nothing. He's unplugged, I guess. :-( Bummer! I understand Sunday is not a "Haunt" day by any means, but it added a certain ambiance last year.
  5. Ohh, man. If I was on Death Row, my last wishes would be a Baconator (or two) and a ride on Diamondback...lol. Heaven.

    Coney BBQ and 2018 Food Reviews

    I went to Hank's today, and looked jealously at the mac-and-cheese thing not knowing what I might or might not be able to get. So I just stayed in line at Hank's. Asked politely for a bit of queso and guac on my burrito and was told it was an up-charge for my dining plan on both. No chips and salsa either. The good news is my daughter and I had finished our meal by the time my wife and son even got out of the Subway line.

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    I guess I got hung up on the 15-20 year expectation. That IS NOT the expectation for KI. Nor should it be for any park.

    15-20 years on average? What basic math for what crappy park are you doing? And how does it relate to Kings Island?

    I know absolutely nothing about "the business", but Cedar Fair seems to love B&M. I'm guessing a big part of that is because they work well for years and years at the set price, rather than something they have to throw money at constantly. It would make sense, but again...I have no real idea.

    I don't know either, but I figure they stop making parts when there aren't anymore buyers for said parts.

    From what I can gather, a lot of Czarnecki's work revolved around the turbulent airflow over winged aircraft. Vortex? The Bat? Firehawk? I think all COULD apply.

    English Bro'. What do YOU think is coming and going at Kings Island?

    All that trivial tombstone insight, and no suggestion of what the end-game is? Argh!

    If that were the case, I doubt they would take the stance of, "well, we just got rid of it without letting you know, but if you really love it just go to Kentucky Kingdom".

    I can't imagine them removing a major coaster without telling the public well in advance so those who love it can ride it to their heart's content before it goes away. That would just be really rude. At this point I think the Big Brown Box is going bye-bye. Or something else the park doesn't think is much of a big deal enough to forewarn us.
