Banshee Media Day Photo TR (4-17-14)

Recommended Posts

Well, since I'm literally too tired to type out a big long trip report right now, I'll just let the photos do most of the talking...

And last but not least, a dry Congo Falls

Overall, it was an excellent day, thank you Kings Island and Cedar Fair for all the improvements you've made this year. Everything is perfect, from the newly redone Festhaus entrance to the addition of Banshee, you delivered in every aspect possible, and more...

I feel like the whole area is heading for a haunted theme. Maybe next year the remaining rides will get name changes and then the area will be changed from Action Zone to something else.

Maybe Drop Tower also getting a new coat of paint?

Also some fantastic pictures!

1) I love every detail the park went through with this ride. Even the little things like the chandeliers in the station make a huge difference.

2) AMAZING pictures. I especially love these 2. They're awesome. The second one is so cool seeing the track dip down into the valley, hidden in fog.

^I too am impressed at how well my new camera had been taking photos today...

Pretty darn good for a point-and-shoot if I do say so myself!

I love the whole theme and look for the ride. And the station looks great. The lights for it are awesome looking and really make a big impact

Awesome Bat Video...the song though, while good...I had a misheard lyric on...yeah I kinda know, there is a topic for this but...

Actual Lyrics: "I'm Stuck in a Coma"
I Initially Heard: "I suck at Vekoma" :P

I coulndt' really tell in the video but does The Bat still stop for a moment on the lift hill like it used to or is it continuous now?
