Very well done video. I have such contempt and such a lack of respect for the man that is currently occupying the White House, though, that it ruins it for me hearing him speak at the start.

? Even if you dont agree with president bush, how could you not agree on what he said about the tragic events of september 11th?

Ahhh, the words are very well crafted.

They are most appropriate and very dramatic.

But it is my personal opinion that it all theater for that man.

Hey wooferbear, this topic is not about your opinions of President George W. Bush or anyone's opinions of the president for that matter, head over to a different forum if you wish to discuss that. This topic is about Nights of Fire and the content that was filmed and photographed last night and put together over night through lots of hard work and effort on the part mostly of Ryan Suhr who did a fantastic job with this video. Whether you like him or not, he is our president, what he says in the video is true and all Americans can relate to it. The speech included wasnt one-sided, right wing, or left wing, it was condolence to the lives lost on September 11th, so lets have some respect here for the lives that were lost ont hat day and some respect for the man who has to lead the country through times like that and stand up under the eyes and scrutiny of every American through tough times like that, whether you like him or not it takes a lot to do that job and thats something to be respected of every American president so leave the politics off this topic! Great editing work Ryan, the video really captures how spectacular the event was, I cant telly ou how much I enjoyed contributing and working with you guys on the filming and production of the video, it really shows the effort and work we all put in. Night's of Fire was a great event that any American could be proud of, despite thsoe who feel Kings Island cut back this year they should know that Nights of Fire is still as powerful and moving as ever and that its full effect can not just be felt in this video. Have a safe and happy fourth of July weekend everyone!

And that is why this site is The Complete Guide to Paramount`s Kings Island!

Yeah, the pictures were wonderful. The Eiffel Tower looked awesome with the lights that were installed for WinterFest last year!

Unfortunately, the pictures are as close as I`m going to get to Kings Island through the fourth of July. I will most likely be working down at Coney tomorrow (depending on how my one class at school goes tomorrow). Tomorrow is perhaps the busiest day of the year (last year they set an attendance record on the 3rd). It is the annual LaRosa`s Balloon Glow, followed by Rozzi`s Fireworks launched behind Lake Como at 10pm.

Thanks for the kind words everyone! If you haven't seen the video yet, please download it and let me know. This is the first one I've done for the site in about a year, so I'm still knocking off some of the ring rust.

In response to some of the political statements above, that's far from the intention of the video. I actually Googled audio for "patriotic" and that came up and it seemed extremely appropriate for the direction in which I was going with the video.

Remember, the Star Spangled Celebration ends July 4th!!

I knew it was Ryan`s first video in about a year, not the sites. At one point in time he was talking about a end of season video for 2005, but obviousely he never got around to it.

I've been having major computer problems. A total format and two upgrades later, I'm ready to roll.
