Out of your idea, I like the indoor Log flume idea. Lift on the outside, go inside to tell a story as you wind around, second lift outside for a spahdown drop.

Sounds like Jurassic Park at Island of Adventure.

Don’t know why, but there was orange spray paint on the DBack support closest to the Crypt.

 That could potentially have been some form of early season maintenance. The lines seem to be right in line with 2 of the mounting bolts. Potentially could have replaced some mounting hardware on the support.

I saw this ride from Alton Towers and it would have fit the MT theme if KI would have kept the the Crpyt ride and just demolished the building.

I love KD's Crypt. I could be wrong, but I thought our Crypt was not engineered to be outside?

Our Crypt was. The problem was that the ride was a show ride, rather than a thrill ride. A show ride is a ride where the cars, or in this case (3 rows of seats) would reach a point and the next show element would commence.  Our version was never built for the 8 inversion cycle KD was. KD’s version was the prototype floorless model, which was only designed for thrills, not show elements.

When the park I work at gets inspected by the dept. of agriculture they use orange marking tape to mark off stuff that needs attention (loose bolts, hazards, etc.) I believe that's the case here. I even seen some orange ribbons on Banshee supports.

I'd like to see a revamped Phantom Theater in that building.

I think a dark ride with some sort of coaster element would be awesome! I'm thinking a Mack Inverted Powered Coaster!

I mean I guess we already have FoF. There needs to just be a dark ride in that place I just dunno what I would want haha. Maybe there is a type of dark ride that can incorporate Mr. Phantom.

I don't know, think Disney's Haunted Mansion. Multiple levels of ride. Could be done, and could be cool.

I think a wild mouse with the car shaped like a mine car would be cool. Have a light on the front. They could have 2 lifts and have some cool drops along with some awesome mouse coaster turns.

Could be done for sure. Just don't think we'll see any attraction going in that spot anytime soon. I see that building coming down sooner rather than later.

Something less ambitious and cheaper would be a multilevel fun/tilt house.  If designed right with easily switched out theming elements it could even be a second Haunt attraction within the same building.

What is it was like a run away mine train  with a light on front  to see where you are going. Sorta fits in with southeastern ohio and rivertowns.

My idea is a dark ride themed to a cave tour. It could be called "The Cave of Discovery"

Boo Blasters is already a "Cave of Discovery" for the teenagers in the park.

 I had just had a brief moment of indoor water ride... something along the likes of Pirates of the Caribbean at Disney. Not necessarily a thrill ride, but a river town kind of ride.

How about something that ties together the Rivertown coasters?  I loved the RL Stine books about The Beast.  Maybe they could put in a dark ride that would incorporate either the legend about The Beast itself, Mystic Timbers, and even Diamondback.  So many creatures and so much rich storytelling that could take place.  I mean, I realize it's not likely, but a girl can dream, right?

A girl can write her own story too. I've been imagining the groundhogs that live near The Beast as the embodiment of "The Beast" for some time now. 

Lets write some KI fan fiction :)

I'm so down for that it's not even funny.  I pass this building on 741 on way to the park.  It SCREAMS Stranger Things.

Perhaps some experiment went wrong and mutated creatures escaped.  Perhaps they were testing a medication and it got into the ground water and caused the indigenous creatures of the area to change in size and appearance. Oh, the possibilities.

 We need to get @McSalsa in on this!!
