  1. I haven't done many of the flat rides because I get kind of icky on spinning things. I also haven't done Banshee, Diamondback, and Flight of Fear.
  2. I'm late to The Vortex game-- It was my first upside down roller coaster I ever rode when I was like 12. I disliked it so much that I avoided going upside down again because I was so afraid to feel that dizzying sensation again. I didn't ride an upside down coaster again until I was 25. So no, I'm not a fan of Vortex. And I'm not an expert on Kings Island nor coasters-- but the last few years I've visited (I go about once a year), Vortex was often down for hours, broken down at the top of the lift hill, or when it was running-- it sounded terrible. As a pretty much tourist in the pa
  3. Mine was The Beastie in the late 90's. I was maybe.. 4 or 5?
  4. I am actually a sucker for family coasters like AE. Plus, it's one of the few rides in the park that has the potential of being "Disney"-ish to me. I would really love to see it get some TLC to really make this ride more special. Better lighting, maybe props or fog?, etc. It has gotten WAY rougher the past few times I've ridden it. It hurts my back way more than The Beast.
  5. Anyways, while I know the 20:11 is now the years those respective rides have been running-- I still think my idea of it being something from 2011 isn't totally invalid. My first thought was maybe they'd get rid of WindSeeker for space or something, or if the new ride would be something that's in other CF parks like Dinosaurs Alive and WindSeeker were. I am a little thrown at Invertigo for some reason. That coaster doesn't get much hype anymore, so I'm glad to see it getting mentioned.
  6. Oh, I apologize guys. I guess I missed that in the thread.
  7. I wonder if 20:11 has something to do with this... WindSeeker and Dinosaurs Alive were added that year.
  8. I am looking very forward to seeing the fountains in person, especially with the new fountain show! I always felt the pedestals were a little dated looking, and they didn't make it feel grand. I'm sure Kings Island is hoping to transform the fountain into something you'd see at Walt Disney World. Maybe I'm wrong!
  9. I just saw on Instagram. Kentucky Kingdom just posted "Something is in the wind..." as an announcement for something new coming to their park. I just thought that was an interesting coincidence.
  10. Eh, I think planning a fake funeral would be kind of morbid if it was a person. I mean, possibly? And what about the air is still and it being big?
  11. Here's my thoughts-- It's one of our own... -- I don't think it's a ride you can find at other Cedar Fair parks like WindSeeker or Stunt Coaster. And I don't know about you, but Firehawk has never felt like a "Kings Island" coaster, if you know what I mean. It's always felt foreign to the park. It's big-- I think it's something that's gonna upset some people. I've heard theories of Invertigo, the old Tomb Raider building, and Firehawk. While these interesting speculations, I think a large chunk of Kings Island attendance would not miss any of these rumors. And then the ai
  12. I've got a sneaking suspicion that it's the cars, and I'm with @Waltny. I've never been a speedway fan in any theme park. Love the thought of maybe a new flat ride, or a ride for families or chickens like me-- but I've always thought the little cars were boring. Of course, I'd love to see the RMC Son of Beast-- but I would honestly be happy with Racer getting some love. The backwards Racer returning would be AMAZING.
  13. You know I thought it was odd that the park didn't make any announcements over the speakers regarding the Globetrotters. They didn't even make the announcement to remind people to only smoke in designated areas!
  14. My sister and I ventured off to Kings Island for the first time together in 12-14 years this past Saturday. Weather was pretty gray and cool, which is nice weather for a theme-park I think! This is the first time this has ever happened to me at the gate-- but I had purchased our tickets for her birthday on December 27th from my local Kroger. I've done this before with no issues, and this time we were denied entry to the park because my tickets were from last season. The lady kindly explained that the tickets were purchased last year, and I would have to buy new ones at the gate if I wante
