Please do not ask the same question over and over. That is at least the third time you asked the same question in the last couple of weeks. Also, you really need to work on your posts. Using correct capitalization, spelling and grammar is a requirement to post to the forums.

It looks like that first drop is going to send you screaming like a crazy woman right from the start!!

 

 

Also, isn't it traditional for a flag to be placed on top of the highest point of iron work when it's put in place? If so does that mean the peak of the lift hill isn't the highest point of the rollercoaster?

The second half of the Coaster is at a lower grade, so perhaps the Batwing is the highest point?

 

I've never felt so confused as I do reading this.

 

He probably means that the batwing is higher above the local ground level than the lift. Lower than the lift relative to the whole coaster, higher than the lift relative to the ground. But that is unlikely - the hill isn't very steep, so it isn't that much lower. On the other hand, it should reach its top speed in the batwing, so either the batwing is taller than the dive loop or similar-sized and very intense.

Yes thank you for clarifying. I should have said perhaps the Batwing is the tallest point rather than highest point. But I doubt thats the case. I was just throwing out the idea.

I did all of the 75% of the Haunts: Crypt, Urgent Scare, Wolfpack, Delta Delta, Board 2 Death, Club Blood. I think I'm forgetting one or two more. They were all hardly scary; the actors were very boring tonight. I hope it was just tonight. It wasn't like when I was working in Haunt.

 

 

Most disappointing: Urgent Scare. Yeah, let's cut out the outdoor section AND forget the plot to this one. It used to be so good. Screw this maze. It's so dead.

 

Delta Delta: Give us back Massacre Manor.

 

Club Blood: WORST ACTORS EVER. No enthusiasm. They were just standing there. The MC was awful.

 

Board 2 Death; Seriously, half the actors were talking to each other when we came into the room. Then tried to scare the person leading the group. Seriously? Learn to scare.

 

Wolfpack was alright, they had a lot of actors in the maze. But the 2nd half of the maze is pointless. Bikes? Chairs? What the F.

 

Madam's Crypt: Ehhhhh yeah it's got a cool set up. Yeah it's a step in the right direction. But it's short. Minus points. And again, the actors are obvious trying to act like they're fake just standing in the open. That's dumb. But a few smart actors got me to jump.

 

I'll post pictures of Banshee tomorrow after I sleep.

It's as tall as Gatekeeper, for all those who went to CP this year.

Adventure Express is naked :( This is taken from SOB's old station. Look at all those supports!

I'm at the park now. We are using our free visit for this year since we got platinum passes for next season. As soon as we got on the first ride (delirium, yes i wanted that to be close to banshee) it started pouring like crazy. We got soaked. Everything was closed for a bit.

Yes. It's 170ft. And you can see it from many areas of the park, I was pretty surprised.

Yay! One I my favorite parts of Kings Island is driving up to it and seeing it from the road. It's no as impressive as Cedar Point's, but it's a nice skyline. I can't wait to see how Banshee looks from the road.

 

Can't wait to ride it! I made a recreation in NoLimits (still a WIP, it needs supports and the like) but while I didn't pay THAT much attention to shaping it exactly like the real thing (I'm making it as an RCT3 custom track) it looks to be intense at the bottom of the drop but then after that it only pulls about 3 max. I was hoping for more forces and I'm fairly certain that my shaping isn't exact, but it's close. Though there was some decent hang time on that inline twist.

We had a similar experience at Cedar Point last Friday night in Cornstalkers. Hardly any scare actors and the one's that were there just stood there and looked at us while we walked by. Certainly glad that we didn't wait more than ten minutes to walk it.

 

The Gemini midway was almost pitch black where the only things open were Carn-evil and the Happy Friar french fry place (which of course, we had to stop at). Perhaps this is due to the expansion that is coming in next year? Didn't see much in the way of construction, but then again it was so dark it was hard to see. Made for a long, dark boring walk over to the Frontier Trail and Maverick.

 

I know that they say that some rides and attractions won't be open on Friday nights, but it certainly seemed like a lot less was open at the park this year compared to years past. I wonder if this is just a fluke or are other Cedar Fair parks taking a similar approach to minimize costs?

 

On another note, Banshee looks great! I like how should be able to sit at the beer garden and enjoy a beer while watching people coming down the first drop. Although I imagine some people might complain of it destroying the ambience when they hear that huge B&M roar every few minutes!

Same here. I like the view of the park as you drive along Kings Island Drive towards the south parking lot entrance though the view as you near the park while going north on I-71 is great as well.

 

While Banshee may not have the commanding presence its predecessor had but it does look great filling in that side of the park.

Can't be any worse than SOB's very loud anti-rollbacks and when the train disengatged off the lift. I like the B&M roar but it seemed like Raptor's and Mantis' were more amplified which irritated me for some reason this year.

Heres a Banshee update from Oct 4th. Its very visible throughout the park. It will be very close to Adventure Express. I took a ride and got very close views of Banshee. With its elavation its seen from near Diamondback. Speaking of Dback... At around 1130 pm i got in line for Beast. After waiting fir 15 minutes or so they announced it was down. That prompted many to leave the line. It went down to barely a 15 minute wait. Once i got further up the line i could see a train on the first lift with riders. Trains were stuck on both lifts and people go off safely. Since those of us in line couldnt ride Beast, we were escorted over to Diamondback for last rides of the night. I was on the final train of the night at it was flying through the woods.
