    Video games, reading, going to Kings Island, watching YouTube videos, and video games.
  1. If anyone else isn't in the loop (like me), here's a quick video to recap it! https://youtu.be/yFgwZhhOfs4
  2. Whoops, I just realized there's already a topic dedicated to this over in Coming Attractions. My bad!
  3. Foreword: Take this with a grain of salt, as I haven't been to the park since July. I found this video titled "Is Son of Beast RETURNING to Kings Island?" while browsing YouTube today, and I thought it was just clickbait or something, but it actually brought up some great points! As the video describes, there are posters in both Kings Island and Cedar Point hinting towards the ride (mentioning Outpost 5 and the type of wood SOB was built with), and fragments of wood have recently been placed near SOB's "grave" in Banshee's queue. I know that many of you (me included) think that our next r
  4. Thanks for helping me with my question, everyone! Good to know it keeps the coaster stable.
  5. I've kinda been curious about something at KI for a bit. I know that some coasters' supports shake and rock (ex: Vortex), and I've heard on these forums that it's meant to do that, and even safer than still supports. Would someone care to explain how this works? Oh, and if this needs to be in another topic, let me know. Thanks!
  6. If you mean when I said it, it was during. (I had to interrupt.) If you mean when we were friends, before, during and after. I was taking her to KI for her 2nd time, and she hadn't rode Invertigo yet. In case you're wondering, she enjoyed the ride greatly. Hopefully I answered your question correctly, even if it was a joke. Hehe
  7. While in line for Invertigo: "They would totally be able to run 2 trains on this! They'd just have to put them both on a lift hill, let one launch, and once it gets to the other lift hill, the other would launch!" Her friend brings up this point: "How would they get off the ride?" She responds, "They would take those stairs! *points to set of stairs on the lift hill* Obviously!" P.S. I may or may not have been her friend.
  8. Banshee: If this is your first "looping" ride/coaster, prepare to be in for a shock. In my opinion, the inversions keep repeating over and over, which will most likely make you dizzy for a bit. If you get sick often, be warned! Firehawk: Can and will be thrilling your first time! The first turnover will frighten you to say the least, but you'll be used to it by the end. Wait times are long! Delirium: One of the best views in the park! I would ride multliple times to see different perspectives of Action Zone. However, looking up at almost any time can be disorienting. Greatest flat ride I've
  9. Here's what I would like: A B&M giga/wing coaster located in X-Base called Glitch. The track could be light orange, the supports yellow, and the trains yellow or green. And yes, I have too much time on my hands.
  10. When you have dreams of going to KI with friends and family. Every night.
  11. About the phone issue, I have a little something to share. On Diamondback's brake run, my mom got her phone out to take a picture of some tree. It slipped out of her hands and fell into the gravel below. Luckily, the man working there (who was very nice) actually went INTO the gravels as soon as the ride was over to look for it with no results. We had to stay near DB's area until park closing which was when Maintenance arrived. The other very nice man at Maintenance retrieved her phone. it still worked, but it had fallen out of the case and both the screen protector and screen were cracked. Th
  12. When I went in 2014, they did. I think it was right next to one of the wave pools. I don't know about this year, though...
  13. I am probably around the age of some of the kids talked about on this topic, and I have three friends (ages 10, 11, and 12) coming with me to Kings Island in a few weeks. The 11 and 12 year olds have never been on a roller coaster and I had taken the 10 year old to Kings Island only recently for their first time at any amusement park. I didn't "force" the 10 year old on anything except two rides: FAAC and Surf Dog. She had thought FAAC was connected to Diamondback and she didn't believe me when I said it wasn't. She was worried about Surf Dog since she had gotten motion sick before, but I was
  14. How long will Labor Day lines be? For my birthday, I'll be going with 3 of my friends the day before and I want to be able ride everything I can with them since two haven't been on a roller coaster before.
  15. Got to ride Banshee on Sunday 3 times in a row and everything I visited was a walk on except for Diamondback. I tried to get 5-1 on Vortex but it was out of order and rode right behind it. Roughest Vortex ride ever! Thank goodness the line was short.
