  1. Last year I visited Haunt at least half of the Fridays it was running, and I can confirm that it does tend to get busier closer to Halloween! Also, Fridays are better than Saturdays, by far, and maze lines get shorter later in the evening. I work at Banshee... THIS IS NOT A TEASER... This has been there since the beginning of the season. A member of my crew who was supposed to be looking for lost articles found it down the hill and in the trees, and thought it would be nice to have actual part of the ride by the Eternal Flame The flowers were put there by SOB fans. I repeat
  2. So. I was at IOA on Monday, and while I had a great time, I had some awesome, fun, sad, and memorable rides on Dragons. First and foremost, the line was the typical station wait most of the day. It started picking up later in the day. Our first ride was on Horntail(Ice) in row 8. This was probably the BEST ride I have ever had on the dragons out of all the times I had ever been to IOA. It was so smooth, and the cobra roll wasn't as jerky as I remembered it being on some of my previous rides. Next we rode Fireball(Fire) in row 1. Other than what felt like a bad road wheel, i
  3. I got my final rides on them today. They both were butter smooth.. Even took someone who had never been to the park, and they mentioned how smooth it was. We managed to get the last public ride on Fireball in row 7. From age 16 to 23 (when I moved away), I put in a lot of rides on those coasters. I have lots of great memories. The last ride was emotional for many reason, but what a great ride it was. I'm not going to make a special trip down for the new HP ride, but returning to Islands will never be the same.
  4. Mason Inn. Stay away from Mason Inn! News for the guy who was inconvenienced by the gates at Banshee not working. They now open automatically when the train stops. You should not have any problems getting out of the station now. Terribly sorry for the inconvenience.
  5. Hi there. I work at Banshee, and can somewhat explain these. The rides close in phases depending on storm proximity. Phase 1 is the big coasters such as Diamondback, Banshee, Invertigo, and the towers. These things close first. Phase 2 is things like SkyFlyer, Delirium etc. These cose second. Phase 3 is the entire park. Basically, if Phase 3 happens, run for cover! Some rides close when others don't depending on the history of said ride in the rain. Don't know what is going on with DB, but we are waiting on new pressure pads at Banshee. We try to open the second gate by th
  6. Probably won't need FastLane on a Monday or Tuesday. Make a lap around the park first before you decide.
  7. Hey there. I am a 4th year returning Banshee crew member. My advice is this: Ride in the first 4 rows of the train. It will not be as intense. The further back you ride, the more intense it will be. Of the 15 B&M inverted coasters I have ridden, our drop in the back is the most intense. Also, you will want to catch Banshee on a HOT day. It tends to run better and smoother on hotter days. When it is cold out, it will be a tad rough. My advice for Diamondback is to ride it first in car 5. That would be rows 9 and 10. It is smack middle of the train, and provides nice
  8. It appears that nobody is going to answer this for us I figured it out, I think. There are red eyes on the right side as you are listening to the music. Also, the things that play on the screens are nods to former rides. (Not sure if anyone has mentioned that fact)
  9. I heard about this in the break room today!... I actually LMAO at that.
  10. Preview night was very busy all over.. we were up to an hour wait at Banshee most of the night. Today, (Sunday) Banshee was a walk on, and I heard Mystic was over an hour. But I agree. It will BE HERE! I did however get to ride Mystic and love it. Perk of working in rides and being sent to help as extended queue team.
  11. So, I was wondering what everyone thought about the new Beauty and the Beast. All shows were sold out when I went. I did manage to get 2 seats together Saturday night that wasn't right at the screen. I want to go see it again! What did everyone think? I think the entire cast did an awesome job. Was very impressed with Emma Watson in this. Josh Gad and Luke Evans were hysterical together. There was a bit more information in this movie than there was in the 1991 version. You find out what happened to Belle's mother. Timelines seem to be fixed and it makes sense.
  12. It would be a good move to use that for a gift shop for Timbers souvenir's and possibly some new Train gear! but where would they put the coke freestyle that is in there right now, plus that's a pretty small space as it is right now. New station pictures where released by the park today! It looks beautiful!!!!!!! © KingsIslandPR on twitter. Are you on that crew? If so and you get drive trained, you are going to bake in the morning sun up there in that drive box. Banshee's drive box sucks in the afternoon through sunset. Even worse, is the metal panel. It reflects the heat. Th
  13. Nope... I rode Diamondback 5 times that day. Longest we waited an an hour and a half. We timed it several times. Back then, a full gueue was 45 from the entrance sign to the top of the stairs. That was a great day.
  14. I am pleased to announce that I will be returning to Banshee for 2017! That one time I was Twatted or snapped or whatever it is the kids or doing these days!
