  1. Banshee, Diamondback and The Beast, always gonna be my big 3. Vortex and Backlot Stunt Coaster are decent rides also imo
  2. There is this 50s diner inside of Dollywood that has these skinny little fries, even though they are so small, they have the most amazing flavor, its crazy, I'm guessing its whatever they fry them in but they are so dam good.
  3. The Beast lift hill announcement guy always gives me the creeps lol, just something about the tone of his voice and the way it sounds, so eerie.
  4. I believe they got rid of the Fast Lane because of all the technical issues FoF has unfortunately been having this year and with the 2 back rows closed off on each train also, definitely been a bad year for FoF, really hopeing it gets some much needed TLC during the off season.
  5. Yeah SOB was actually really good, imo, when it was first built in 2000 but as it started to age a bit, things just kept getting worse and worse unfortunately. Of course I'd rather have Banshee in its place anyday anyway as I have been waiting 15 years for KI to get a B&M Invert.
  6. Yeah Banshee Bash was a great time, had a blast. Really hope to do it again sometime. Yeah, I don't really like FireHawk either, I've ridden it 4 or 5 times over the past 7 years, just awkward and uncomfortable. Adventure Express is still as jerky as ever, there was a lady and her 3 kids in the 2 rows in front of me and I heard her groan towards the end of the ride and when we got near the station I said to her "I think the ride found us guilty before it even started" lol had a good laugh. Vortex, always ride 5-1, keep your head out and centered, cant go wrong imo, always ride that at least once every time I come to KI, its the coaster that awakened the enthusiast in me, always a soft spot in my heart, rode it 4th of July 1997 with my older brother for the first time when I was 16. The Beast, DiamondBack and Banshee, the mighty trio, especially Banshee, been waiting 15 years for KI to build a B&M Invert, was 110% worth the wait, love it, ridden her 99 times so far, going back for P&G Day to hit ride #100 and beyond ! Poor Flight Of Fear really needs some TLC, been a rough year for em this year, pretty good ride towards the front or in the front imo, otherwise you will get thrown around alot, rode it in the back a month ago and it felt more like Pinball Machine : The Ride because I'm pretty sure I was full tilt when I got off of it that night.
  7. Yeah I took a pic that afternoon with my smartphone of the main platform being completely empty to show my wife because she likes to ride that one occasionally.
  8. Yeah used to like Adventure Express but now it seems like its gotten so much jerkier than it used to be. Flight Of Fear used to be really good also, mainly enjoy the launch, not as bad towards the front compared to the back but its still a bit jerky and the MCBR does kinda screw up the rest of the ride, especially when they time it wrong and it happens later than its supposed to.
  9. Yeah that was a really awesome event, was nice to spend the day at KI feeling like a VIP. Only odd thing though was that KI delayed our Night ERT on Banshee by like 5 or 10 mins so by the time I got done with that and headed to Diamondback, only had enough time to ride once cause when I went back around to ride, the girl attending to the entrance had closed it off already, would have been nice if they gave us like 5 or 10 extra mins on Diamondback because of the delay, other than that, everything else was golden. Would definitely love to do this again for sure !
  10. Spinning flats, can ride roller coasters till the cows come home but spinning flats make me feel blah, also, some swinging ships.
  11. Firehawk at Kings Island - Have ridden it 4 times over the last 6 years, have tried to give it a chance but I just don't like it, fairly uncomfortable and awkward. The Racer at Kings Island - Bit rough, really needs to be re-tracked and doesn't help that they push the buzz bars down too far, only thing that makes me not mind riding it so much is discovering that I can use my camera pouch as a buffer between my thighs and the buzz bar.
  12. Yeah. thats one thing I have realized over my last few trips is that Banshee's line diminishes a lot over the course of the day, start with the back of the park and work your way towards the front and by the time you get there, both Banshee and The Bat should have low wait times, usually ride Banshee about 5 or 6 times in the mid afternoon back to back after the line has died down a lot then usually come back late evening for a few more. Also Diamondback is really good in the back, rode that in the back last tues for the first time that I can remember, throws you around a bit and gives some really good airtime. Don't outstretch your arms during the splashdown though unless you want the back of them to get wet/sticky lol.
  13. ^ I just hope Gozer and the Stay Puft Marshmellow Man don't show up and wreck the place after that happens lol.
  14. Rode The Beast tues night after the fireworks. Don't remember in my entire life if I have ever rode The Beast in the pitch dark but wow. First, its really kinda trippy in a cool way to stare up at a cloudless night sky on the first lift hill and see all the stars, just something really neat about that feeling. Then, the drop and then its just like your hauling ass and you can barely see where you are even going or what is in front of you, its so crazy but so fun and combined with all the people in the train just hootin and hollering and acting wild, that is definitely an awesome and fun way to end the night at Kings Island, definitely need to do that again.
  15. Man, Flight Of Fear is so dam jerky now since they finally reopened it, gonna start calling it "Pinball : The Ride" lolz
  16. Young girl behind me in line for The Beast on about a 30 min wait : "I would rather ride The Vortex 10 times and throw up all 10 times than wait in this line."
  17. Alright, bought my ticket, going to be a great day, first TPR event and in my home park, looking forward to it !
  18. I love Diamondback, always a good ride for me, usually ride it no less than 2 times during my weekly visit. Only ride in the park where I like to put my hands up from start to finish. I always prefer the outside seats, feels so free with just the right amount of airtime. I definitely think they do need to be more consistent with ride operations though, seems like sometimes the operators are doing really good at dispatching trains with minimal delays and sometimes it seems like they are slacking off a lot lol.
  19. Usually best to ride Flight Of Fear early before it gets crowded and probably Diamondback. Since you are going on a Tues you should be fine, best part of the week that I always try to go on. Only thing down at the moment that I am aware of is Shake, Rattle and Roll.
  20. Definitely love Flight Of Fear at KI, really enjoy the launch, just wish the rest of the ride wasn't so jerky.
  21. TOGO also built King Cobra at Kings Island, kinda miss that ride, wishing we would get a new Stand Up Coaster one day.
  22. Never been to one of these before, sounds like fun and in my home park, definitely going.
  23. The only one I can tell you that I am aware of is 5-1 on Vortex at KI. Car 5 Row 1, it is the car/seat that the entire ride was designed around.
  24. Would love to download them but keep getting a zero byte file whenever I try to.
