  1. What kind of cat are we talking about here? Not many are tall enough to ride...
  2. FYI its never been longest. Beast has it beat in both track length and duration.
  3. Maybe DeWine is upset that Orion opening means Diamondback isn't the biggest fastest tallest meanest coaster to ever strike Kings Island!!!!!
  4. I got an email from Six Flags Magic Mountain saying they are adding a free day to memberships for every day they are closed plus adding free perks. Who knows what else the industry will come up with but it seems like we may still get the value of our passes etc. Hopefully Kings Island won't need to follow suit.
  5. I think there is plenty of in between there. A settlement is most likely and Cedar Fair can probably afford to pay for the overtime/lawsuit for one park.
  6. I think he means each year. Basically KI opens before the other parks that have a WindSeeker. Poor wording make this confusing as well as the question choice. Opening days change from year to year.
  7. Yeah that's what I always thought. My understanding is Arrow only developed a limited number of track pieces and simply reused them. I would guess that Viper at Magic Mountain would have the same size loops just higher up.
  8. To be clear are they essentially the same size with the second 10 ft. lower? That was always my impression. It always looked as though the track dipped a bit going into the second loop. With Arrow's cookie cutter design this would make sense.
  9. There hasn't been an announcement yet. Orion ornaments have April Edit - 11th not 20 -on them making that the likely opening day. In the past pass holder preview day has been the Friday before opening day starting at 5. I'm not sure if ert for next year has been announced or not but Orion is likely to be on it at some point.
  10. They only run both sides when the park is busy enough. They usually run red.
  11. App puts most things around 15 - 25 and Diamondback does look around 20. Soak City did look crowded and the park feels busy overall although the lines don't look too bad atm.
  12. I'm aware that was under Paramount who proved it could work fine and was far less likely to cram in rides or have them interact with midways or other rides than Cedar Fair. If the infrastructure is there already and all they have to do is extend a lift over another coaster (probably using some steel bridging like Mystic Timbers) then I think they would be willing to take those steps. With rides like Mystic Timbers, Valravn and Yukon Striker they have proven that. And are certainly more willing than Paramount would have been in my opinion.
  13. It already was the entrance to a roller coaster right next to The Bat and through its exit. I don't think the park is very concerned about it.
  14. I think Mystic Timbers shows they will since it certainly didn't have to be crammed on top of White Water Canyon.
