What coaster at Kings Island would you give some offseason work to?

^They did...they just did it 12 years ago. While I agree that there are certainly rides that have long term marketing potential, (Beast is a great example) Invertigo isn't one of them, IMO.

To each his own though right?

As far as Flight of Fear - I'd love to see that ride returned to its original glory (minus the OTS restraints that gave your ears a nice beating...). The one thing that annoys me the most about that ride now is the "bring the train to a complete standstill" brake on the MCBR. I realize that they need to slow the train down some, but why is it necessary to slow it down that much?

You haven't ridden it recently have you? The first 3 cars basically fly past the brakes, the brakes slow down the last 2 cars and tries to stop, but it doesn't stop the train anymore. At least that's how it was 2 weeks ago. Really helps the pacing, IMO.

It may help the pacing, but just wait till they have to evac like that...

Ahem.

Joker's Jinx.

Poltergeist.

NO midcourse brake. Operate just fine in Maryland and Texas...

Right, but I don't think they would take out FOF's midcourse. It would completely destroy the chance/purpose of a 3rd train... which who knows, maybe it'll return one day? When you're riding, you can see it sitting under the corkscrew. I never saw it in there last year...

And since they added the brake between the two stations, it can hold 5... haha. I think 3 is a good number. Any more than that, and there would be constant stacking...

5 ould be WAY to much. I mean it's hard enough with 2. Getting a train out every minute is hard.
