  1. Can I upgrade my gold pass to platinum online or do I have to do it in person?
  2. Kentucky Flyer is the first small Gravity Group I've ridden and it is a perfect family coaster. I had tons of fun on it and so did people across all age demographics. I rode with a little kid when he needed someone to ride with and he loved it. It was his 2nd coaster after Roller Skater and it was very thrilling but not too scary for him. Overall a super reridable and fun coaster that I plan on riding each visit to the park.
  3. When I blacked out on Millennium Force my head was between my knees. It wasn't comfortable and with a ride that has more G forces it could be a major problem. Another reason some rides should have OTSRs is if there are strong forward Gs that are found in elements like batwings. RMC coasters don't have very many forward Gs because all their inversions are rolls and not inversions that are exited vertically with the exception of Goliaths dive loop. Therefore no OTSRs are needed on their rides.
  4. They were too short to ride so they decided to revolt and...
  5. Has Kentucky Kingdom released how many cars will be on each train?
  6. I don’t think anyone else mentioned this but Kentucky Flyer will have steel supports. Also Ed Hart said it would be like wooden warrior with ‘better elements’
  7. We all known deep down that it is a themed brake run added to storm chaser
  8. I believe the loop on Flash is 170ft so if this ride is 220ft tall with a 197ft loop it would take the world record for tallest inversion.
  9. From reading the rules this ride will have 12 rows of 2 seats per row. Also I’m leaning toward a MACK hyper because of the similar stats. TREX is in the word search though.
  10. Yeah when I worked there this summer as a lifeguard they wouldn't let me work more than 40 hours. One Sunday I got sent home at 12:30 because I was about to hit 40 hours that week. The only people that worked overtime were the managers who were paid more anyways.
  11. I went back to school on July 26th and the other Indiana schools in the area went back on the 27th.
  12. I do this constantly. Yeah but 80 percent of the time the person isn't talking about an actual coaster and just using it as a metaphor for life.
  13. 3/10 if you are referring to the coaster at Great Adventure Lightning Rod?
  14. I personally thought the Hurler at KD was a really fun woodie. I only got one ride somewhere in the middle of the train and I was pleasantly surprised with how smooth and fast paced it was.
  15. Holiday World 4. Voyage-Brown 3.Raven-Brown 2.Legend-Brown 1.Thunderbird-Orange.....and Brown
  16. The "surprise element" means nothing. People are going to want to ride it regardless of whether or not they're surprised when the announcement is made. Valravn was leaked about a year ahead of time by the Sandusky Register and it didn't make a bit of difference. Plus, you're operating under the assumption that everyone is following the leaks and studying the coaster layout as closely as hardcore enthusiasts are. They're not. PS: The "Well, no sh*t!" moment from hardcore fans and pass holders means nothing because... a) They were the ones looking all over the internet for leaked photos. That's not the park's problem. They didn't want an "oh sh*t" moment, they want to speculate endlessly about every detail of the ride and get every inside source they can. That's fine, but don't spend a year doing that and then blame the park when the announcement doesn't surprise you. b) Hardcore fans and pass holders are... well... hardcore fans and pass holders. They're going to buy passes no matter what. The park doesn't have to work to get them excited about the coaster. Even if all they were getting was a petting zoo expansion they would still renew their passes. I'm talking less about the people that endlessly speculate and more about the people that will go to park several times this season and see a gigantic new coaster being built right before their eyes. Those who purposely ignore the leaks and images will still have it spoiled for them when they visit the park in May. If you're following the leaks closely, you have no right to complain about the surprise element of this announcement. I personally think of the announcement as "spoiling" the ride. It tells you what the ride will be. You talk about it in the sense that the announcement is something magnificent and is the main experience in itself. I feel like you should be excited to ride the ride and not excited to hear the announcement. The announcement is to create hype and there is already hype, so an announcement at this time is unnecessary. I honestly like how they are "announcing" this piece by piece, because it will keep us more interested for a longer period of time. It is like Christmas. No matter what you will open the presents on Christmas. With an announcement all the presents are put under the tree. You can see all of them, but you can't open them until Christmas. What they are doing now is putting one present out at a time. All the presents will get under the tree, but won't be there until later. The fun in this is that you won't know how many awesome elements this ride will have until the ride is completed.
  17. The only opening day I have been to for a new coaster was last year for Storm Chaser. The line was soooooo long that they made me get off the ride and walk all the way around to the entrance. The line must have been 20 people long.
  18. I can't believe Banshee had that long of a line. When I went in the fall of 2014 the wait was never more that 4-5 trains, even for the front row.
