  1. Any coaster club is going to have positives and negatives. It also is what you make of it. I enjoy ACE, but I have many friends in other clubs, and have thought about joining other clubs as well.
  2. I finally got my page set up today. I am doing a twist--I'm going to match the initial $150 that folks donate to my page with donation to others. Being in the medical field, I know how important laughter and fun is to the recovery process.
  3. I disagree about a HH type of place in RT. We already have an indoor dining/entertainment venue there. The area formerly known as Coney Mall would benefit from an indoor venue.
  4. As Dwight Shrute would say: "NO NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!" I dont think a low capacity ride like this would work at KI. I rode X2 and I hated it. I've heard B&M is developing a concept with a wing coaster configuration where the seats would rotate. Maybe that, but I will leave it for other riders.
  5. In my opinion, it's totally worth it. Awesome park, just sad that Volcano: The Blast Coaster is gone. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. I don't think it works like that. I think KI is its' own general contractor and they hire out different phases of the project. B&M designs to spec, Skyline (or whatever the name of the company is) handles the erection (and probably subs out electrical, mechanical, plumbing, etc), KI brings in ride control systems engineers, landscape companies and thematic companies. I used to think B&M would just be paid 30 million for a GiGa and the park just gave them a key to the gate, but I no longer think that way.
  7. I thought maybe there was a division in Coaster Crew. Enthusiasts have debated for so long about the definition of "GiGa" and about RMC topper track being Woodies, that maybe the OVC guy nailed a list of grievances on Mike Koontz's office door. This forced the removal of him and his followers, and they rose to the top and founded COCC...Cream Of the Coaster Crew. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. @King Ding Dong, I've never heard of COCC. Is it new? It will probably not even get included with Coasterstock!
  9. Well, if that were the case, Kentucky Kingdom would have been planning for Lightning Run in 2009 when it was still Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom. I think the parks have to be nimble enough in the long term planning to get short term benefits. I'd bet there is a Kings Island 2025 plan out there in a folder somewhere, but things change.
  10. ^That's always been a gap in my understanding. Taft-KECO-Carl Linder (KI only)….but how did KI come back into the fold before the Paramount years?
  11. I hate that it comes to, what I see, as infighting among clubs. There is nothing wrong with being members of more than one club. If media day invites are important, you can join ACE for that and be in GOCC or Coaster Crew or TPR for social reasons. Memberships are very affordable, and the benefits are great in all of them.
  12. Your $5 away! Great job! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  13. Do you travel 2.5 hours south? I've got tons of mulch to move! [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. The charity event was much fun for Mystic Timbers, but I enjoyed media day more. I was very happy to raise money for kids though. If you go to the charity event, you likely will run into a lot of YouTube "celebrities" who did not get a media day invite who are there to "cover" and get "EXCLUSIVE" and "BREAKING FOOTAGE."
  15. As Orion's helix goes up, Vortex's came down.
  16. The flume was part of Rivertown when the park was built. As was the ride pad where Linus Launchers are now. I guess the southern end of the restroom complex was too. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  17. I don't doubt this could be true, but at this point, it's a rumour. Unless the park has sent it out officially since I was last at my computer. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  18. "And I coulda gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling Coaster Studio type Youtubers saying to stash your stuff in the bushes!"
  19. Kentucky Kingdom has announced something interesting. On this week's show, the CEO of Dippin Dots will be the subject of Undercover Boss and this episode was filmed last summer at the park! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  20. I've only been on 4 but all of them have LOUD anti rollbacks. They are actually pretty quiet thru the rest of the course though. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  21. Many people join more than one coaster club. I am not in GOCC, but I know several people there and they are great folks.
  22. I don't think KI will get an RMC unless they can quiet down thier anti rollbacks. Imagine the noise complaints with that! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  23. I doubt Skyline in the Swiss Building will leave anytime soon since it is a KI sponsor. And Skyline and KI go hand in hand for many. I could see it downsized now that there is more patio seating by the Royal Fountain--leaving the seating area open for something like the Yogurt Place. The French Building would be great for a new eatery if it could be reconfigured. Of course, I would like a Harmony Hall type eatery, but it may be superfluous with the Festhaus. But it would be a great indoor venue for Winterfest, especially at the other end of the area formerly known as Coney Mall.
  24. There is an all season plastic cup with free refills, an all season paper cup option, and an all-season plastic cup option that is much cheaper initially, but refills are $1 after the day of purchase.
