    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    I think Invertigo would be my personal choice of what's to go although unless removing a few other things that wouldn't offer much space.

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    Has anybody else thought of The Bat leaving? It just doesn't seem like it ever is busy and even with The Bat theme is in shambles compared to its 1990s Top Gun self. I feel like it takes up some nice space as well for something to be built back there in Action Zone.

    Outpost 5 symbols popping up...

    That barrel in The Beast queue happens to be the same barrel that was in Phantom Theater if I recall correctly. I started seeing it a few years ago and noticed it was the same "Flash Powder" barrel from Phantom. Also they had Son of Beast ride parts in a casket a few haunts ago with the outpost 5 logo on it. I always like to look at the outpost 5 logo on The Son of Beast station while going up the Adventure Express lift hill as it's easy to see although harder now with Banshee then it was in 2013 when the land was empty. Here are pictures that I took of both a few years ago. MaestroJr

    Ideas for the Crypt building?

    I will have to say though that even though I hope to see Boo Blasters replaced in the near future, after riding it last Monday it looks about as good as it has ever. My Blasters worked and everything was on running smoothly. Every target accurate and Boocifer even has red sunglasses on this year. They defiantly should replace it sooner than later but it has gotten some TLC over the past several years now. Not to mention its popularity, it always has a line it seems.

    Guests Say The Darnest Things

    I can't tell you how many times that I hear guest, including my parents call Boo Blasters "Phantom of the Opera ride". While waiting in line for Boo during Winterfest my dad mentioned it again and even though I have a shirt with the ride logo of Phantom Theater they still are for sure that it was called Phantom of the opera at some point.

    You Know It's the Off Season When...

    Being stuck on WindSeeker or Drop Zone both sound terrifying. I've only ever been stuck on two rides and they aren't the most intense, Boo Blasters and Adventure Express. Actually been stuck on Boo Blasters a few times, including Winterfest briefly, and it always is around the Skeleton strobe light scene but only on Adventure Express once and that was probably 10 or more years ago. It happened on the final part of the ride and I think was actually a fairly long wait to get it working again.

    The Beast Roughness/jerking

    I think the very back of The Beast is the roughest part but always fun in any seat. Now The Racer on the other hand is almost uncomfortable in the back, with me even saying "glad that's over" when I ride it backseat. The Beast is my favorite next to Banshee and day or night I think it's the best coaster, my favorite anyways!

    You Know It's the Off Season When...

    Hopefully the Larosa's and Skyline will get built quickly and successfully and stay for a long time because a couple of years ago their was a rumor that they were planning to build a Larosa's here near me in Nicholasville but it never was completed and I didnt here anything more about it. Hopefully this will prove to be successful and serve the central Kentucky area with Cincy pride!

    You Know It's the Off Season When...

    When your pushing a shopping cart at Kroger and you realize the squeaking of the wheels remind you of The Beast, especially on a nice day like today.

    Dufunctland: Son of Beast

    Back in fall of 2012 while Sonny was being torn down they put on twitter that bolts and track from the structure of Son of Beast were up for grabs for a limited time only. I called up and got one right away for $20 I believe it was. Defiantly a cool piece of Kings Island history and it also came with a certificate of authenticity and Son of Beast tag which had some info on the ride. They are probably not easy to find today but maybe try ebay from time to time I've seen them on there.

    Official: WinterFest 2017

    I went tonight for about 3 hours and my first visit, I had a blast at Winterfest but it was cold, very cold. The wind was worse and when we left the park it was 17 degrees but the park was great and festive, wonderful atmosphere. I rode Zephyr and Woodstock Gliders for the first time and man Zephyr was great fun but good lord was it freezing. Boo Blasters was fun as always and nice that they had some added Christmas themes added in, all in all a good visit and look forward to next year. MaestroJr Ride Total: Zephyr-2 Woodstock Gliders-1 Dodgem-1 Boo Blasters on Boo Hill-3 Sorry for the unescessary photos I couldn’t figure out how to delete stuff and I’m not used to posting on my phone so sorry for that.

    The park has taken pretty good care of the ride this year. I assume it operated well, effects and all?

    Coasters for Winterfest future

    This is completely hypothetical but what coasters do you think could or should operate during Winterfest, and if the event continues into the future do you think more will be open? I personally would have like to have seen The Racer operate.

    Winterfest Questions

    Next Saturday we were planning on going but high temperature for Mason is 34. Now I know weather can change quickly, especially in Ohio but do you think that Mystic Timbers would still be operating at only two shades above freezing?
