  1. Haven't posted in the forums for a while but have been reading them! Just got back from Kings Island and the crowds were INSANE! Banshee had a 5+ Hour wait! The line was extending all the way to the Eiffel Tower at 2pm! Banshee did not disappoint. Amazing ride and amazing restraint system. Would love Cedar Fair to consider putting these on Raptor and other B&M inverts. Didn't think there was going to be a huge crowd today! Luckily I noticed the line forming on the expressway to get in the parking lot at 11am and when I finally got in the park I headed straight to purchase fast lane+. Turned Banshee's wait into maybe 30 mins! (Was an hour total due to a breakdown.) Everything else was a station wait with fast lane. Worth every penny! Only rough part of Beast was the entrance into the helix! (The line for Beast seemed like a 3 hour wait!) Vortex seemed rougher and in need of a paint job! All in all a great day. Main downer today was Fight of Fear was down! Anyone at the park today get a ride on Flight of Fear or was it down all day? Also my other question was has anyone at any Cedar Fair park experienced the Fast Lane selling out?

  2. I also would LOVE to see NTAG/i RAT for Mean Streak. Ghostrider looks amazing but I haven't yet ridden it but folks say it used to be amazing but got unbearably rough, so I guess it could use full topper track. I don't see this in the future yet because, has Cedar Fair worked with Rocky Mountain at all yet?? Son of Beast's structure was apparently too shot to for either treatment but did Cedar Fair really look into it? Not trying to be pessimistic or question anyone's credibility just noting that Cedar Fair has yet to work with Rocky Mountain unless I'm wrong and missed something...

  3. Kings Island has been fairly quiet on the social media end of things, posting a couple pics on Twitter, but Facebook has been pretty quiet. I did see though that on the 14th they did post that work was being done on Racer this year, including the queue and station. I did find though that the blue side last year was brutal, as it's so far the only coaster to leave a visible bruise on my arm, so hopefully there's going to be some new track on both sides.

     

     

    There's NO fixing that side of Racer! Its been like that for as long as I can remember from when I was a WAY younger kid! I think it's worse than Son Of Beast and Mean Streak combined! Its like the bottom of every drop the wheels turn into squares! The Red/Backwards side never was that bad!

  4. I'm pretty much at this point have the mindset, Kentucky Kingdom? bah, no, my home park is Holiday World and would much rather go there honestly.
    It’s going to cost more than planned to get Kentucky Kingdom in shape

     

    Shocking.

     

    I do hope that it opens, but it's pretty much a back and forth joke now.

     

    This is the way I also feel... While I do hope this park opens back up, I don't care too much and I've moved on with my life! I think everyone in this area has also moved on by now. 2009 was a LONG time ago. I now consider Kings Island my home park!

    Hope to get out some more soon... (Hersheypark... Kings Dominion...)

  6. ^^ My source is a former supervisor (six flags era) has told me something similar to this... However he did tell me the limit was 180, not 200. He also told me the limit went down towards thunder run/ twisted twins area. And he did tell me that the land behind Chang/T2 was Kentucky Kingdoms to expand upon. I think there's a map of who owns what land somewhere is this forum. However I think the fair board now owns the land that was previously owned by Kentucky Kingdom/Six Flags as part of the deal for Six Flags getting out of the lease.

  8. ^They probably mean declining popularity by the line today VS the line from when I was a kid and extended to Racers entrance!

     

    I must say I LOVE Vortex and if it leaves, I will miss it greatly. For some reason, it's the one ride I get off of and say, THAT was a... Rollercoaster.... (I know that may not make much sense). Has to do with the now classic feel and only slight bumpiness. I also ride Vortex multiple times while at Kings Island and I've only had about 2 unbearable rides on it. My height poses a serious problem sitting in the back half of any arrow looping car!

  9. ^ I believe Giovanola is a subcontractor (excluding SoCal Goliath, Titan, and Anaconda which they built themselves) for those early Intamins, and for early B&Ms until B&M built there own plant close to Cincinnati in order to cut down on shipping cost. Overseas, B&M still use Giovanola as a subcontractor.

     

    Also Bolliger & Mabillard use to work for Intamin before starting their own company.

     

    This is only what I am led to believe. I may be wrong...
