Beast1979 Posted February 1, 2009 Share Posted February 1, 2009 First off, I have to thank all the people at KIC for putting together this memorable event. Fantastic job, even if it didn't work out the way it was supposed to. The event was fun, informative, and helpfull for the offseason blues, an enjoyable time. I was really looking forward to the Construction Tour, but not everything goes the way you want it to. I will say this, I will definitely be there on February 21. The day was looking perfect. Cold, yet perfect. Our street, untill just a few days ago, had a thick coating of ice and slush on it, but was cleared recently. We're go! Unfortunately we didn't get out the door as quick as we wanted to. Luckily the roads were in pretty good shape. As we drove along this unmistakable water tower loomed above us, and I knew it wasn't long before.... ....Ah ha! Kings Island appeared in the background. And pictures, yet again, do absolutely no justice to how massive this is. When I first saw the concept art I imagined only the first or second hills really becoming visable, but Diamondback truely dominates Mason! As we pulled into the Great Wolf Lodge the rides of KI became visible. It was horrible trying to find a parking space in GWL, maybe because we cut it real close to sign in time. Gah! Big singing clock! I was told by one of my compadres (cough Jordan cough) to wait at the Diamondback model. Where is he? Well, I thought looking at the Diamondback model would pass the time. Plus, it helped me warm up on my photography. So, they are trying to be enviornmentally friendly..... .....Yet they have animal skins hanging from the walls? Am I the only one who saw this? I am interested to know, from a business standpoint, when the Christmas Season begins and ends. It's almost February for heaven's sake! Amazing Terraforming. It's probably just me but I cant stand the little things wrong in the model. Like, the Hammerhead isn't banked enough. And the helix is going the wrong way. One child standing next to me said, "The Corkscrews are what make it scary" I politely said, "Those aren't corkscrews, their helixes" He looked at me like I had 8 heads. More in a second.....
