  1. Yeah, they've enclosed the sides of the FOF outdoor queue area instead of it just being open, and are apparently increasing the amount of space that was formerly switchbacks for additional locker area, so there's less lanes outside the main building than before. Firehawk's old maze has been altered and connected in so any excess queue for FOF doesn't spill out and congest the midway, because while it is somewhat uncommon for FOF to need much outdoor queue space, Orion being right there will certainly increase the ridership since it'll be exiting right by the FOF entrance, and it'll probably ne
  2. Orion got used by the NIMBYs to start complaining about noise again... https://www.wvxu.org/post/kings-island-taking-steps-respond-neighbors-noise-concerns#stream/0 Orion's rails were sand-filled from fabrication, but now they're going to be working on a project to add sand into Diamondback's spine in some areas of the ride.
  3. Since the cams have been down, they've installed the next lift support and three-section track assembly to the climb, and today so far they've installed at least one major support assembly for the drop, in addition to the "backbone" spine from there to the ground which includes one track section of the drop itself.
  4. That's how the gigas are built yeah, the track is the structure for the entire crest.
  5. Webcams are apparently down for a software system problem, and could be a few days potentially. The white crane was in the air today and seen from the highway placing the next lift structure, while the red crane was working over by the first drop.
  6. Yesterday I thought that was just a couple sections of track that had been assembled and laid over there, but in better light today I realized it was the base of the drop. Probably trying to get everything they can with the small cranes into place, which won't be much more since they've got a bunch of gravel built up for the crane's "pad" over there (at least for the lift and surrounding area, not sure where they'll park it for further out sections).
  7. You know, being right on the Coney midway and having that classic design feel to it, I think the station would be a nice venue to be converted into an in-park history museum. They could even leave that small fixed part of Vortex track that leads into the "shed" part in place alongside the old Bat footer right next to it. It would fit right in with how they've paid homage to past rides in the Antique Autos theming.
  8. I am genuinely shocked. I was so relieved when Firehawk was revealed to be the one leaving in last year's "funeral" scene because the wording could also apply to Vortex, and then now they just announce Vortex departing a month out without anyone having had any hint it would be leaving, or at least not for a few more years at least. I've never known KI without Vortex, it's one year older than me. One of my earliest memories from the park was watching it wind around, and the back of the park will never sound the same again without that signature Arrow chain lift. I hope the station is ke
  9. Those hollow square bar sections throughout that track are for the lap bar release mechanism, they raise up and press against the release on the bottom of the train. Considering there's one right at the edge of that section, it can't be for the end of the station because the zero car would be there, not a car with a restraint release.
  10. Nighthawk IS Stealth, it was a relocation, so very careful dismantling and transport.
  11. This is my fifth demolition on my track record. Screechin Eagle, SOB, Greezed Lighting and Twisted Twins previously. Edit: Correction, sixth. Forgot that dumb Caripro Scooby Ghoster Coaster.
