  1. Just as a curiosity, VortexBFF, what is your current favorite ride at the park now that Vortex is gone?
  2. The old yellow color would fit right in with Woodstock too My vote was also for Diamondback. Definitely agree that it is looking really faded these days and a refresh would give Rivertown as a whole a sharper look.
  3. I'm just really disappointed. If I see a ton of these out on ebay come March or whenever delivery hits, ill be really upset that they didn't cap the amount available to buy per transaction at 2-4. That way real fans had a chance to buy online before it went to resellers. I got a notice they were sold out before 8:01 so these went faster than tickets to a guns and roses concert.
  4. Logged in at 758 item was not up yet. Went to site as soon as 800 hit and went through payment process and it was already sold out. These went in like 30 seconds. All payment fields were auto filled in and it took me less than half minute to hit check out. They were gone by then.
  5. I am not sure when FL sales started back up, but Sunday they were being sold for $100 when we got to the park at around 11:30
  6. Thank you! It is one of my favorites that I was able to take last season
  7. Last year was very busy on the last day of operation. But the weather was really nice plus it was last day for Vortex.
  8. That's fun, I'll play. For Nostalgic reasons, If this happened, I think the coaster should still carry the name 'Racer' in some way. Sooo I like American Racer, Coney Racer, or to go full blown KI historical, it could be called The Shooting Star Racer.
  9. I know there have been several lists on the thread already, but thought I'd throw my 2 cents in there. These are just some random thoughts about things I'd like to see in the park 10 years from now, some of which do echo things that have been mentioned in this thread previously. --Something added to The Vortex plot of land--. I'd prefer to see a new coaster go here. My preference would be a ground-up RMC. I am wondering if something like Zandra would fit here. I think the most likely coaster that CF might install in this plot would be a Mack launch, similar to Copperhead Strike. I'
  10. I like King Cobra for a Defunct Land video. Would be cool to see what kind of footage they would find for it. Really any of the rides from the old Adventure Village would be fun, not to just see the attractions, but also some old photos and video of that area in general as it was one of my favorite areas of the park when I was a kid. The Animal Safari monorail ride could be interesting, especially given its history and the fact that the vehicles still exist at Jungle Jim's. Screamin' Demon was my first inversion, and it had a good life at Camden Park after it left KI so it would be fun for
  11. I think its hard to beat the Orlando area with the Disney and Universal Parks, plus with Sea World and the Fun Spots there and Busch Gardens an hour and a half down the road, there is really a lot to do there. If there are young kids, Legoland is pretty cool and not far away. Especially if you factor in all of the great waterparks around the area, its a good place to be in. As for regional park areas, I live near Indianapolis and am within a couple hours of KI, Kentucky Kingdom and Holiday World. Indiana Beach about an hour away. Cedar Point about 4 and a half hour drive and Six Fla
  12. They should add the old Phantom Theater theme to the playlist. I was at the park yesterday and it would fit right in with some of the songs they are playing this year.
  13. I am not sure I would be in favor of the RMC treatment for any of the rides at KI. Had SOB made it this far, that would be an obvious choice, and it's possible that would have been the best RMC ever. However, that is not how things turned out. Personally, I think that both The Beast and The Racer would be much better rides without the restraints they currently have. If these coasters were still able to have the single lap bar of old, instead of having riders crammed into their seats with the currently used restraints, I think the ride experience would be a lot better.
