I love that little hops on the bridge over the river in the forest! I'm sure once the trees start filling out again, it'll be one of the coolest settings for a coaster!

Opening day is on the 15th which means the pass preview night should be on the 14th.

Don't they usually close on the fist Sunday for a buyout?

Typically yes they do, this year I am assuming Friday the 14th will be the pass preview night, with opening day on Saturday the 15th and then closed on Sunday the 16th.

Already have my countdown and babysitter in place for the 14th and 15th.

It looks like the train will run Patel close to it near the backend of the out and back section I never knew that much.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Looks fantastic! This ride will solidify that Kings Island is the place to be for night rides. The Beast may have a little competition!
