  1. Diamondback Vortex Flight of Fear Banshee Beast Racer Bat Firehawk Invertigo Adventure Express Stunt track Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  2. SOB was a great idea but poorly built. But I don't see KI getting a new coaster till 2019 or 20. They don't have to try and brake records with the next one if it dose happen to be a woodie. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  3. An another thing happen to my youngest daughter who is 8 she cried because she wasn't tall enough to ride Diamondback . I have 4 kids my eldest and youngest will ride anything you throw at them the 2 middle kids well they are a work in progress. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  4. I could be wrong here but I thing Levy was suppose to go to one of the parks out west and something happen with the state of California so keep them from getting it. Being so close to CP I can't see KI getting a giga as grand as MF. If so they had 2 chances with DB and Banshee to go that route and they chose not to. CF paid 30,000,000 for fury. I rather see them use the money in other places. Could build 2 or more woodies for that kind of money and have some left over to clean up some of the rough spots in the park. Personally I think the next coaster will be a Vortex replacement but that's just me guessingSent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  5. Something like that happen to me and my daughter this year on Banshee. She wanted to ride it cause her friend did and loved it. So we get in line and she was completely fine until she got in the seat and was terrified. A KI employee notice her cring and asked her if she wanted to ride and she told him yes. But then she quickly changed her mind. And so we exited the ride. I liked how the young man handled himself in the situation like they have been trained to handle things like this. If so my hats off to CF. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  6. I like The Bat / Top Gun they just need to add some things around it is all Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  7. I'm heading there on Sunday. Never been there on Labor Day weekend. Dose Riverfest effect crowds on Sundays before Labor Day ? Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  8. Would have loved to see Old Coney in it's prime Walt Disney called it the finest amusement park in the world. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  9. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk LOL it would be one hell of a atraction for Halloween Haunt.
  10. I know I'm new here and I hope my thoughts haven't cause people to judge me the wrong way. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  11. In no way shape or form do I want to see the demise of The Beast. Everything I said are things I could see happening in the future not things I wanted. The RMC thing is just something I thought they could look into. The first time I rode The Beast I was scared as Hell. From the Marketing the insane rumors even the logo scared me. In fact I rode it the first time with my eyes closed cause I was so scared. I maybe way off on this but I think more people ride because it's a legend then fear factor. I maybe waaaay off on this. And it wouldn't be the first time for that. Maybe Diamondback is this generations Beast that scares the hell out of you. Maybe I'll just have to accept the fact that although still awesome it's just not the wonder it was when I first rode it Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  12. No I'm not saying it should be remove I'm saying it could one day be removed and I never want to see that day. Personally I love it the way it but when I have gone to KI this year I seen 90 min waits at Banshee, Diamondback, Firehawk,and Flight of Fear. And 25 mins tops at Beast. That's not going to get any better if the add bigger and better Coasters. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  13. If CF took out The Beast and put in an Iron Beast 335 KI wouldn't miss a beat with the younger crowd. Sure us older guys would go nuts over the thought of it but we are not the ones the are going to carry KI in the future. Just look how many thought it was crazy to move Old Coney to where KI is now. They said it never would work who would want to drive all the way out there. Change happens we either go with it or get left behind. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  14. That's the thing many of us don't think about. The Beast was a major undertaking and it seem like they just had to wing it at times in designing it. Something a lot of younger riders don't understand. With bigger annd faster coasters being built I think it's lost a lot of its wow factor with younger riders. I could be way off but that's just my opinion. The Beast is an icon not just in KI but in the world. All things change over time. Look at Wrigley Field in Chicago. I like The Beast to last another 40 years. Change doesn't have to happen right now. But someday all us old guys won't be around to ride it. And it takes up a huge 35 acres of land. So I can see KI one day taking it out to expand. I know it sounds crazy right now but just look to the future is all I'm saying Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. It be nice but I'd go more for length then height. KI could have the 2 longest coasters in the world but it probably cost the in the 50,000,000 dollar range to do that but it be nice. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  16. Again I'm not talking about a complete retracking of The Beast I'm only talking about the high stress areas. I love The Beast. The layout and how it goes off into the woods and rumbles through the covered helix. But if there was a way to engineer it to go faster without destroying the legend that it is I say do it. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  17. That's how I feel. Like I said if it's done right. The Beast is awesome but just imagine if it ran full speed the whole way that would be over the top. But I repeat if done right not like SF has done to their woodies. New isn't always a bad way of thinking about things. I have no idea how a coaster is designed or builded there is a lot of math mumbo jumbo that goes into. I just know if people never took chances we wouldn't even have The Beast.

  18. So the topper track would slow it down and make a rougher ride then. Wasn't sure of how the topper track worked. Just an idea I had after reading about it. Not complaining at all about The Beast just thinking of of ways to improve on it. I like to think like that it could be the perfect coaster like the Diamondback and I say that was awesome but what if they did this. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  19. I know this might not be popular with a lot of people. But would it be a bad thing to RMC the high stress areas of The Beast I read on RMC site that they can use their topper track on high stress areas on a wooden along with the wooden track. I think if done right it would decrease the need for the braking areas along the track and really let The Beast shine. The only section I see that Realy needs the braking is coming down the 2nd hill into the helix. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  20. I have read that CF is going to be removing the Arrows from there parks I hate to see Vortex go but right now it's an eye sore. They need to repaint it clean it up or just trash it. Wouldn't mind seeing a floorless coaster go in its place with the same lay out. As for the ride I think if your over 6/1 it's ok but us short guys like me it's pretty rough. I still love to ride it I just have to hang on for dear life when I do. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  21. I think the entrance is fine. I would like to see a large HD video board over top the entrance like they did with the new Carrowinds Entrance. and I'm not sure if they still have a restaurant above the entrance of not but I like to see them do something creative with that space. Maybe a Cedar Fair store where you can buy merchandise or other things for the other Ceder Fair parks. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  22. Seems everyone wants the next one to be a Giga. I think the next one will sadly be a Vortex replacement I say look for a floorless coaster. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
