  1. I’m not an expert myself lol I’m just a KI and coaster enthusiast. Maybe KI will file another notice here soon. As the 2022-2023 is labeled 9/27/22. They haven’t done any teasing that I know of. Although it was the day before the Camp Snoopy announcement that we knew we were getting something next year so I wouldn’t be surprised if there was no teasing for a coaster removal. With a new boomerang coaster on the way in 2024 I just think the data is there and I would definitely not be surprised to see Invertigo close this year.
  2. If the construction on SSBR was to start in 2023 Vekoma would have to be on 2022-2023 right? Correct me if I am wrong I may be getting confused.
  3. Looking back at the 2022-2023 Improvement notice there doesn’t seem to be Vekoma listed on here which is very interesting with Snoop’s Soap Box Racers coming next year. One more thing I wanted to point out. O’Rourke wrecking company is on there as well. I would keep my eyes peeled Tommorow morning because both Firehawk and Vortex were announced to be removed on September 27th 2018 and 2019.
  4. Is there any new tombstones this year?
  5. Any new updates so far? I hope the park gets things going soon if they want a spring opening for camp snoopy. In the video showcasing CS it just said 2024 so I hope it isn’t a summer opening.
  6. There is no such thing as a perfect ride but I’d say Voyage is pretty close. The slight roughness can be fixed by retrack which is what they did this past offseason. It has an insane layout that endlessly keeps coming at you. You hit the break run thinking how on earth does this thing exist…
  7. If Valravn wasn’t sent to Cedar Point would we have gotten a dive coaster instead of Orion?
  8. Notice Time Traveler is on that list and RTH isn’t. You don’t have to go crazy to make an extreme spinner amazing. I think most of the GP would like TT over RTH if they had the chance to ride both I think it’s only the enthusiasts who like Ride to Happiness more.
  9. Do you have the list of the top 25?
  10. I a few weeks ago I decided to watch some old KI coaster announcements and I came across the Banshee announcement and if you look in the animated pov from 2013 it shows grave stones on the ground in between the 4th and 5th inversions as well as the 2nd loop and upward helix. Wonder why it was scraped. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM7SJctRFMY
  11. With the new maze going in Area 72 the SOB station activity has certainly become very very intriguing…
  12. I wonder what is so big this year that lots of CF parks are advertising their announcements for Haunt. KD is tomorrow as well and Dorney is Thursday.
  13. Sorry for Double post. As soon as SSBR was announced I almost immediately thought that we wouldn’t see a new coaster in 2025 because CF wouldn’t put a new coaster in back to back years. But I have been thinking, in 2023 Cedar Point opened Wild Mouse with a new area upgrade. Then they added Top Thrill 2 in 2024. Both additions from Zamperla. In 2024 Kings Island is getting a smaller coaster with a new area upgrade. What if KI got a package deal with Vekoma for a new coaster in 2025 just like CP? I think 2026 or 2027 is still very likely I just wanted to point out that I wouldn’t rule it out yet.
  14. Invertigo or any other attraction’s closure might be announced on September 27th if they decide to close anything. Firehawk and Vortex closures were both announced September 27th.
  15. I don’t know if it is possible but I would really like to see the old trains on FAAC swapped for the new gen trains that are so much more comfortable. I also wonder, with the repaint will we see a new name for FAAC?
  16. I 100% agree. The area has already been empty for so long I wouldn’t mind waiting longer. I would rather see a new coaster go to Action Zone along with a retheme of the area. Maybe theme it to like Haunted Hill or something. Banshee and Bat already fit that theme. Drop Tower and Delirium could easily be re themed with the area as well. They could also get a package deal with Zamperla and get a Lighting Launch with a NebulaZ in the area. This would all happen with the removal of Invertigo and Congo Falls.
  17. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for items to come back in stock on the KI store?
  18. With a new boomerang on it’s way next year it may be sooner than we thought…
  19. Where did you get The Beast, FOF, Steel Vengeance posters at? Your setup looks awesome!
  20. Railblazer has been having issues just like wonder woman at SFFT so I really don’t think it will be relocated. I think it may be the first RMC to get demolished. If Valleyfair wanted an invert I wonder how much cheaper it would be to relocate Flight deck and retrack it. I don’t know if the price would be cheaper but that could be an option. I have no clue on Gold Striker. It’s a 50/50 shot on if it gets relocated. If it were to be relocated Carowinds would be the best fit. But I don’t know how easy it would be to relocate it. I think Psycho Mouse probably has the highest chance to be relocated. I think it would definitely go to KI if it got relocated. We are the only park in the chain without a wild mouse. I think Patriot will be scrapped. It’s over 30 years old already had the floorless treatment and I don’t think any park would want a 30+ year old B&M that they will just have to tear down in a few years. Any other coaster they have I think will be scrapped as well. Maybe Lucy’s crabby cabbies could go somewhere else but I don’t know where it would go.
  21. Does anyone know why the Kings Island gear website is under maintenance? I’m sure it is just regular maintenance but I saw that all CF gear websites are down as well.
  22. I finally got my Banshee ride this weekend at it was running well! I sat on the left side of the train and I finally heard the music on the lift hill. Maybe I haven’t noticed it since I always sit on the right side of the train.
  23. I have a season pass and it’s digital so do I show the line greeter the season pass? Sorry I may have read it wrong.
  24. Can the Single use FL be used at any coaster that has FL available? Also how would I redeem it?
