Get over it man.  You've made your point and we get it; it's silly that this park did not do a Winterfest-lite.  Make the 8 hour drive to KD if you want to experience that, just like all of us with KD

My visit this past weekend was great, even with Saturday being very busy and me missing out on FL until Sunday.    I went into Orion not having followed its construction or watched a POV or even

At the risk of veering off topic, people are just incredibly selective in what causes of death they choose to care about. People only care if it's high-profile, tragic accident, something new and scar

I just hope that this isn't the absolute end of the B&M pre-drops as I feel like they are a great first element and can still work great in future layouts.

 

Basic fact of life that is worth repeating.

Actually, that's Rule 34. Rule 42 is that nothing is sacred, which somewhat ties into the same theme.

The cat walk is now complete. I figured that would be something that would be done once actual track work had been completed. I wonder if we will see the Dive Loop by the end of the weekend?

I really hope they have some kind of timeline showing the demolition of SOB and the rising of Banshee. Similar to the video that was played in the opening year of Maverick, in the queue. (not sure if it's still there or not)

I like when rides get down to business though, the "turning" part of the drop looks like it happens lower than if it were to have a pre-drop, meaning riders may get more "drop" than turn. I'm all for more drop Though OzIris' drop would be a good example of how this drop would feel wouldn't it?

I was there Friday night (one of best theme park visits I've had in quite a while) and most of yesterday and I didn't notice anything different with Flight Deck's queue. The ride definitely needs a makevover or something as it's looking a bit shabby including the trains, which seen dirty and worn.

 

Even though it's just the lift hill Banshee is looking great and will have many photo opportunities. I was wondering though if the I Scream ice cream stand will be demolished to make way for the dive loop as it looks like it may be in the way. Also Delirium is going to offer some very cool views of the ride as you swing over Banshee, especially if it's timed just right when a train goes by as you swing over it.

Its time for another Kings Island update for this weekend. On friday i went through delta delta die, slaughterhouse and madame fatales. The actors in both had quite good timing as they went after people. They got the person i was with nicely. She even made me go first but that didnt work out to well. Tombstone terror tory was somewhat devoid of scareactors by the time we got to it. Saturday was PACKED to the brim. It was tough to move anywhere. Ed alonzo had a fine 7pm show. The crowd was going crazy with his shots at his helper onstage. She was "well endowed" and he went after that. On to Banshee photos. This week i was trying to find the places the lift hill was visible from. There are shots of Haunt decor too. Until next week...

Here's some more pictures from last night. No new track work, but lots of supports are going up for the loop and the immelman. We rode Diamondback twice (full queue is 1 hour 10 minutes with a crew that was constantly stacking) For the record, the main queue house full only takes 25 minutes to go through. We rode Top Gun, Racer, Adventure Express, Windseeker.

 

We also did Backwoods Bayou, Cornstalkers (worst maze/actors), Board to Death (What's up with the lighting in the first half? It was so dark you couldn't see jack sh!t.), Slaughterhouse, and Wolfpack.

We too battled the crowds yesterday at the park. I like to experience the Haunt attractions, and since I live in Columbus, it's impossible for me to get there on Fridays due to our work schedule, so we got there for the early opening and were able to get most of the rides in early.

 

To note though... something is happening around Top Gun. There is concrete being demolished under the station and the effects below the station have been removed. There is some equipment and a dumpster below the ride as well. I haven't had time to read other threads if this has been discussed.

 

We did 4 Haunts: Delta Delta Die, which was "okay", Board to Death which really missed some great opportunities, and my two old Favorites, Club Blood and Wolf Pack.

 

Attached are a few photos. Enjoy.

I would love to see it rethemed to the Bat, just so I know the ride is staying for many more years. I also went through the kids area, which is in the waterpark! With Jo and Patrick, and it was surprisingly fun. There was also a maze there where we got plastic spider rings and a lolly-pop for going through. It was themed to storybook characters.

I noticed underneath Flight Deck as well and then I saw the stuff on the ground. I can't imagine its being taken out with the crowds that will be drawn over to to that area next year. Unless it is really hard to maintain I would think that would be a stupid idea.

 

The park Saturday was probably the busiest I have ever experienced myself. I felt like early-on it wasn't too busy because a lot of the rides didn't have all of their turnstiles open in the ques. I even road Firehawk which I actually like, but usually skip because the line moves so slowly.

 

The only Haunt related complaints from me is line placements. The maze in Tomb Raider's old building and The Beast lines kept getting mixed in together because there wasn't any clear definition of where each line was until you got to a place where there was a separation. I figured it out, but many didn't.

 

It was also confusing to have Club Blood, Flight Deck, and Wolfpack entrances together and have Flight Deck exit in the same spot. What a mess and there weren't any signs I saw that told you Flight Deck's entrances was down there. Like I said, it was packed Saturday.
