Recommended Posts

Ill be there opening day. How do you get to go for media day? For this site or somewhere else?

 

 

It is going to be just like Gatekeeper Media Day where paid coaster club members will be able to attend. Don confirmed this at an event I went to a couple weeks ago.

I didn't know you had to be a paid club member (this was going to be my first media day) to attend. Is it too late to join one to get in?

 

Also, was opening day/media day ever announced?

That's good to know, but is there a date by which I need to join to get into media day? I really want to join, but it might wait until next season since I'll have no use for it with just one park visit left for me this season.

 

Alright, it's a boring Sunday afternoon in September (possibly the most boring month of the year up there with February and April) and I had nothing better to do than with my time than to make this:

Not sure how accurate it is but it should be pretty close. I'm just glad I finally have the entire layout memorized in order.

^ For Club TPR you get a 1 year membership when you sign up. So if you signed up today, you would be a Club TPR member and get all the perks until Sept. 22 of 2014. Club TPR is a bargain, you should definitely join though, it's totally worth it.

Definitely joining so I can do this, I was just wondering if we needed to sign up for media day or anything so they know how much food to make, how to schedule it, ect. I've been to a VIP event at Kings Island once for my dad's work and loved it and I'd love to go to another one to ride this awesome new coaster. I just want to wait until this season is over to regist

 

Regarding my comment about Wild Eagle earlier, what I was saying is that I had ridden mostly towards the front the first few times and found that it lacked forces, and then rode in the back right and found that it was just a bit more intense. But when I rode in the back on the left... OMG!!! For some reason this seat felt like it was in a whole new league of intensity compared to the rest of the coaster. That ride resulted in a lot of loud commentary from me because I was so surprised to be getting such an intense ride on what I thought was a tame coaster. It was the only time I ever had an issue with stapling and I honestly found it slightly difficult to keep my hands up on the eight curve. So I don't think the whole thing is intense, but the forces are the most powerful in that seat. I just found it surprising and if Banshee gives the same intensity as that back seat, it'll definitely trump Afterburn as my favorite invert.

All the information you will need will be posted in the Club TPR forum.

Also, Gatekeepers restraints are fixed. The vests do not tighten anymore.

 

I noticed that on my ride last night. Didn't feel the restraint tighten either (sat on left side, second row, inside seat).

 

Banshee is going to look pretty sweet from the Action Zone entrance/Delirium. Let's hope the entire area gets a makeover in the near future.

All they would really need to do is relocate Flying ACE Aerial Chase to that side and they could rename the area "Dangling Feet World"

I wonder if this thing will fly up as quickly as the floorless coaster at Heide Park did? I'm looking forward to it as well.

 

I wouldn't be surprised based on how fast cedar fair were able to put up Gatekeeper really quickly last year.

^ They just need lots of cement!

 

I was there the other day and things are moving along very quickly...not sure how to get a 'backstage pass' so I couldn't take any real good pictures that haven't already been published.

Nice to see this coaster beginning to gain progress. I will be checking back especially for the reveal of the trains which hopefully should be revealed not long after track completion (or before). Looking at the three images Robb posted, I see that in the third image, the support closest to the camera has a different foundation than I've seen before to any other B&M foundation. Are B&M testing a method similar to how Gerstlauer and Maurer Sohne place there supports? It should be interesting to see them use this method on any future projects.

I am very anxious to see how this ride turns out. I love the Batman Inverts, and I've enjoyed some of the larger ones like Montu, so I'm curious to see where this will play in.

 

 

LOVE MONTU! My number 1 inverted!

 

I am hoping Banshee will tear through the batwing like Montu does!
