  1. The Beast is going up the lift agonizingly slow today, but hanging off the lift in the front seat was an unreal experience. If only that was at night...
  2. Ed said this? It sucks if it's true because I have yet to ride enterprise and I was looking forward to it next season. It seems odd that they'd remove it, as it seems like one of their most popular flats. As for 2019, I'm hoping for a coaster that tall. If not a coaster, a tall drop tower would be nice although they already have Fear Fall so it wouldn't make much sense. Grona Lund has an Intamin Skyjump, Intamin 2nd gen drop tower and an S&S Tower. A second drop tower doesn’t sounds too impossible but in all seriousness I could see KK getting a Zamperla Endeavor to provide a new take on a classic ride. As far as the 220 ft attraction, did Ed say this himself? Definitely didn’t see a hyper coaster coming but that’d definitely draw in crowds.
  3. Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know by the time SOB was torn down, the coaster's wood was already rotting in some places. I believe RCCA used a subpar quality wood, ontop of Paramount dropping RCCA and finishing the coaster themselves. Nobody would have wanted anything to do with the ride by the second time it closed.
  4. You should have no problem with lines if you have FL+. Even if the park is super busy I've noticed not many people buy FL/FL+
  5. Honestly despite having a better ride lineup than KI, I prefer KI over CP. KI to me has a much better atmosphere around the entire park, wheras CP felt a bit more cluttered/cramped. I guess that's a sacrifice you've gotta make if you're striving to have the most coasters at one park though Both are fantastic parks nonetheless.
  6. I've heard that KK/the fair board owns the land/parking lot area behind Deep Water Dive, but I'm not sure how accurate that is. If they were to remove the amphitheater from behind T3 that would free up a bit more space, but I'm not gonna count on them removing it.
  7. I noticed the same day of the Koaster Kids event at the park, the Greezed Lightnin' trains were being hauled away. Any idea what's happening to them? Scrapyard or refurbishment for another schwarzkopf coaster somewhere?
  8. The last time I rode the hang 'n bang boomerang, my restraint opened up a notch going into the cobra roll and I about had a heart attack. Don't plan on riding again anytime soon.
  9. It's terrible really wherever you sit. I have to agree the back is the best seat, although still terrible.
  10. Just left the park and I have to say, The Bat was running absolutely mental today. Got the two most intense rides I've ever had on the ride today.
  11. That's exactly why I'm not counting on a B&M hyper for the park. The height restrictions through the park fluctuate, not to mention LR gives better air than any B&M hyper I've ridden...
  12. Hey guys, I'm planning a trip to Carowinds or Kings Dominion for Friday, June 2, but am in a bit of a situation. Both parks have been on my bucket list for a while but I'm torn. My boyfriend and I only haveenough time to make it out to one of the parks and we don't know which to go to. My question is which park would be the best for us to go to? We plan on getting FL+, but other than that both parks equally draw us in which doesn't make this decision any easier. Any suggestions for which park to choose would be greatly appreciated
  13. Not sure if anyone has mentioned this yet either, but I'm really curious as to what's planned for the land clearing behind Banshee. Supposedly people were spotted surveying the old SOB station recently.
  14. There's a very good chance that this is true. In the conference call they specifically said that one of the coaster types would be brand new and a chicken and biscuit coaster would definitely fit the bill. It's great to see Cedar Fair on the cutting edge of innovation. I'm also happy they seem to partnering with Bojangles'. While it's certainty not my favorite southern chicken restaurant, this partnership would allow the coaster to be open on Sundays and that's a major win in my book. Would the MCBR include a drive-thru window where you can buy chicken? If so, I'm sold. I'd be all for this if the food lines weren't already atrocious
  15. Any word on the 2018/19 additions yet? The anticipation is killer
  16. I missed seeing where Cedar Fair said that the parks will be getting 4 more coasters. Would you mind giving me a link to it? Sounds like great news. Thanks. http://coasterforce.com/cedar-fair-new-coasters-2018/ Hopefully this turns out to be true, as I'd like to see smaller CF parks get some love.
  17. So assuming KI won't be getting one of the 4 coasters Cedar Fair has said some of the parks would get, I would personally love to see a Gerstlauer Sky Roller on the old Flight Commander pad. Maybe even name it Flight Commander?
  18. Looks like I'll be at the park a lot this summer seeing as I got a job in rides not sure what ride yet but either way I'm really excited. Keep a look out for me throughout the season
  19. Tivoli Gardens posted a video on their youtube channel where two girls took ice cream cones on their air race ride. Pretty funny to watch it fly everywhere lol
  20. I'm really starting to think this is gonna be a doped up version of Joker's wave turn
  21. Since a majority of the coasters KK has are full of airtime, I'd love to see a B&M floorless to fill the Chang void. The park skyline just isn't the same without a massive looping coaster looming over about everything else.
  22. It really bummed me out having MS closed so early because I wasn't able to make it out to the park (for my first time ever) until after they had closed the ride. Although it was apparently boring and rough, I still would have loved to ride the original. Shame it closed before the rest of the park. I'm obviously excited for the new MS though
  23. Given the length of MS & the fact that the only construction done thus far is track removal, lift hill height addition, and track from the station to the bottom of the lift, this is hands down a 2018 conversion. And I even was pulling for 2017 at one point
  24. I don't understand how Banshee is butter smooth in the front, but the back end seats feel like it's just exploding
