  1. Some companies are the bigger companies and some of them are the smaller ones taht you may have never heard of because my neighbors company is on of the many that will have an outing and its a company that probably many people havnt heard of
  2. The park is closed to the general public including season passholders until September 23rd because the park holds private company outings. (i believe thats right, someone say if i said something wrong)
  3. Depends on what your ideas for an awesome flat are
  4. I thought i missed something last time i was at KI
  5. I was usually too short to ride King Cobra so sadly i never did got to ride it.
  6. It would be cool to get another record breaking coaster although we are home to a lot it seems like but IMO i have to go with what coasterfan said i would much rather see a ride like Maverick come to KI. But hey a new coaster is a new coaster and its usually better then just getting nothing even if it does not come anywhere close to breaking any type of record.
  7. Until this year you couldnt get me on any roller coaster with inversions but now i just go to the park and have lots to choose from although now i want to go up to Cedar Point so i can ride all of the rides up there especially Maverick but i dont know when or if i will ever get that chance
  8. I'd like to have a regular KIC Day during the prime season like this year and an offseason event with construction tour...that is if there is ever any construction Most preferably the offseason event since it would be cool to go around and get to see all of the rides before the park opens for the next season and get a construction tour if we would be able to since i've never been to one of those either.
  9. First time i believe in 1997 then yearly since 1998. Heard about KIC searching on RCDB and decided to just see what the site was all about and fell in love with it. I cant pass a computer anymore without at least checking the forums on the site that is how addicted to the site am.
  10. Hey Ryan how about we get either a huge Thank You card for the cast and crew started or send the park an email showing all the KICentral.com member names and it will give a huge thanks from all of us to everyone involved in ESOI and all of the other shows from this past season and we could also say we would love for an encore season next year. How does that sound to everybody?
  11. Get to the park right at opening to get a $5 Sling Shot ride. I agree that Eurobungee and the old Laser Tag building need to be taken out because there is no sense in keeping a building just standing with nothing in it unless of course its used for Fearfest although i would think its too small for that and Eurobungee isnt much of a money maker IMO because i hardly see anyone waiting to do it even when the park is packed. They can do whatever they want with DOT. Although i love go-carts i wont pay 6 bucks or whatever it is just to go around in a circle when I could get something better with that money. It is kind've a good idea to move FX Theatre to Nick Universe but it would cost too much money IMO to do that. I say either make the money worth it and renovate it or take the wrecking ball to it. I think SoB can stay although like everyone has said when will they stop spending money for improvements and just tear it down. Although it is a good coaster and I'm sure Kings Island and Cedar Fair both would like to keep it up and running, i think sooner or later CF will say enough is enough with SoB especially with the money situation they are in right now and IMO due to the money situation we have to pay more for food, drinks, etc. If i have seen right and some people may have noticed I believe prices went up just a bit on most things in the park like on food, drinks, and games because i though that last year Sling Shot's regular price was $20 instead of $25 this year although i could be wrong as i have been before.
  12. I dont think there is a policy on double rides because I have had double rides on Face/Off, Top Gun, Racer, Vortex, and many other rides and have never asked just simply stayed in the seat. Even when there was somebody in line i would just move to another row without anybody. I have done it the whole season and have never been asked to get off.
  13. Too many to count. At least 10 of the 14 coasters i have had either first ride, last ride, or both.
  14. I always loved to ride KCKC as a kid back when i was 7 or 8 and when i learned it was being taken out for TR i cried because of how fun it was. KCKC is what ended up getting me to ride Racer back then after going down the drop with my hands up. I miss the ride so much and wish it could come back. As for which one i prefer most i would much rather have KCKC.
  15. Yes very good job and some people may not agree but i think the scavenger hunt was probably a lot more fun then the what the SoB tour wouldve been.
  16. I thought i had always seen a tunnel when i was up in the tower but i guess not. Shows how much i pay attention to Nick Universe but still it had a tunnel when it was Beastie and SoB should have one also.
  17. I do agree a tunnel is needed on SoB. Beast and Fairly Odd Coaster (or Beastie) whatever you want to call it have one on the first drop and SoB at least needs one. Another thing my mom also thinks they should do although its no big deal is move the camera for the on-ride photo from the beginning of the lift somewhere else like at the bottom of the first drop. Anyone agree?
  18. My bad i looked at rcdb and then posted. Wasnt thinking although i havnt had much sleep the past few nights
  19. That is very true remember back on May 26, 2000 is when Son of Beast opened.
  20. I also had a really good time yes the heat was bad but i knew it was going to be like that. I didnt talk to anybody but i was with my dad and we were in Indianapolis Colts shirts and my dad had a Colts hat. During the ice show we were in the front row and i had a shower of mini ice chunks hit me about 5-10 minutes before the end of the show but overall we both had a GREAT time and we thank everybody involved and hope for another next year.
  21. I would hate those green boxes it would make you feel like and maybe sometimes look like a little kid because they make you look like you have been bad and now you have to stay in that spot. IMO the boxes dont even work because you see the ops doing what they were used to doing with Paramount and that was roaming freely in the station even when the train is moving. I understand safety but do you really have to have your employees stand in a box 10 feet away from the train/track just to make you feel they are safe. My answer, NO. The op in the drive box or whatever you want to call it can stop a train from moving in the station if he or she does not feel one of the co-workers are unsafe. They have to trust that they have trained these ops enough to know how to operate a ride properly without a supervisor and that the main op overlooks the loading/unloading platform and will know if one of the ops on there is unsafe.
  22. Looked at all 4 news websites for weather and weather.com and all forcasting a high of 92-93 degrees with a 20-30% chance of a popup shower or thunderstorm. Very humid!!!
