Stretching over 200', six Cincinnati Metro buses have been specially redesigned to showcase Diamondback - Kings Island's new B&M hypercoaster set to open in just under two weeks on April 18th. You may see different sections of the snake in Cincinnati from time to time over the next several months, however this was the ONLY time that this six bus caravan will be lined up showing the intimidating image of the Diamondback from head to tale!

Haha, I got the text and came here as fast as my little computer could go. That looks amazing, April 18th needs to hurry up and get here before I start going into coaster withdrawal.

I was part of the media team at KI (along with Ryan, Ronny and Gabe) taking video/photos of the buses. Three hours later, I caught the front bus in Colerain doing a regular Metro route! Small world.

I was in the car with violakat when I got the broadtext. I read it out loud and her response was a sarcastic "It's not Diamondback?" and a laugh. I figured KIC was pulling some kind of April Fools joke, but that is actually pretty cool. Funny, but cool.

When I first read the post I thought it was like an actual live snake roaming in Cincy. Then i read the article and actually got the picture of what it is. This looks really cool wish I could ride on it though.

Start??????? Who hasn't started.

I confess, though, I started my coaster season a little early at Six Flags Over Georgia.

I liked your text animations. What did you use for that?

Asking TB that is like asking Tiger Woods how to hit a drive or LeBron how to make a 360 dunk...it's just pure gift that can't be explained!! ;)

Well, asking Tiger Woods how to hit a drive is easy. Doing it how he does it is the hard part. Asking LeBron James how to make a 360 dunk is easy... doing it is hard.

Now will the busses be doing alternate routes or just stay on one route?

Yes.

In reality, like on all metro bus systems, the buses may indeed be used on other routes than normally assigned to as may be necessary.

In your heart, you knew he would.

But yes, I think they probably will switch around the bus routes so the new buses allow more people to see them. Like they will have some of the more popular routes.

they should use the busses to shuttle the fields ertel route that goes to Kings Island. Seeing a different bus each time you go up to Kings Island. ( if you get lucky enough)
