I have enjoyed roller coasters since I was roughly 8 years old, (early 80's) and never really got excited about the latest and greatest. I just rode the next one on my yearly trip to KI. Only one I was crazy excited about was the original Bat but I was not tall enough to ride it before it was shut down. For some reason, this one has really gotten me going. I am so excited to ride it that I am going crazy. I averaged one trip to KI every other to every 3rd year but for the first time we got season passes for 2020. It is $50 in gas to get there and back each trip and I think we will be spending lots of gas money this year. May have to say in a nearby hotel a couple times.  This thing looks incredible! I am not an engineer but do have experience with FMX riding on 150+ foot jumps. It sure looks to me that it will have some crazy air time.

For anybody who may have forgotten.

Giant red crane - Zeus

Other red crane with white tip - No Name?

White crane - Artemis (may be back when they are starting on the turnaround)

Yellow crane - T-Bone

Small white crane - Cleo

The half white half red crane can be called " Baskets" since he holds the basket the crew gets in haha

Not to steal Orion's thunder but Steel Vengeance last year did this same thing for me. I had not been to any amusement parks in almost 14 years and I had to go Ride it. I bought my first platinum pass last fall because of it. Went to Kings Island for Haunt and Winterfest 18. Now here I am with Season fastlane for the chain, platinum, meal and dining plans and I may buy lockers too. I went to 5 parks this year for a total of about 25 visits. I can't wait to ride Onion on passholder preview night. I just wish there was a way I could go to media day but that's unlikely as I am not media and don't know anybody with this connections.
