Favorite KI Ride Sign.

So, unfortunately, I don't have a better picture of this sign, but here it is...

The Adventure Express sign has always been awesome and nostalgic to me. It did get a refresh some years ago (see above), which looks nice, but I remember the older sign the best (link: https://rcdb.com/70.htm#p=8650). Also, once upon a time, I took a picture of the old exit sign with the plain-looking, 90's-esque font.

As for newer KI signs, we can't forget about this...

(And yes, that is a Crobat posing with the sign).

Not only do I love this ride, but this sign is really cool as well! I also like the Invertigo sign, but I can't find a picture of it at the moment!

 

As for past rides, Firehawk's sign was cool also.

I liked the original Outer Limits: Flight of Fear logo.  Kept in style with the ride (especially if you were around for the build up to it when it opened).  Has a lot of a Star Wars look with a bit of creepiness with the coloring and the speed-style letters of Flight of Fear.   The video in the building is a nice kind of transition from the hype around then to actually riding the thing, particularly with this being the world's introduction to LIM technology and the kind of things it could mean for coasters (we got the first 100 mph coasters a year later with LSM technology).  

The 80s and 90s were a great time to be an enthusiast with the leaps in technology that happened.

Beast is definitely my favorite in the park, especially with the movie stylized lettering, the symmetry, and how the park went out of their way to give The Beast arms definition on the sign.  I always imagine that image when its going into the helix tunnels, especially the first time around.   It looks like a movie poster.

I'm between The Bat and Banshee's ride logos. 

 

-The Bat because I think bats are cool anyways and I really love how they created the letter "A" to resemble an upside-down bat without compromising the letter itself. I honestly wish there was more merch available with the logo on it. I'd love a dri-fit sleeveless shirt in bold black and orange colors with that logo on it.

-Banshee's logo has both a 90's aesthetic and still has a modern feel to it as well. It's bold yet graceful and of course the color scheme is just so eye-catching. On the note of colors, I do really hope they give Banshee a fresh coat of paint soon. She deserves it.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know whatever happened to the King Cobra sign? I know the park has auctioned off a few ride signs through the years but I have always been curious about the King Cobra one. During the ACE Spring Conference we did get to do a tour of the sign shop but I must say that the areas we saw did not include many ride signs at all. The slingshot one was in there but I really don't remember seeing any other significant ones.

Not sure if it’s still in there but I did see it in the Sign Shop during the GOCC Midsummer Scream in 2009.
