Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

If there is some digging that will have to come, I hope they make it look as natural as possible. Slopes rather than ditches, and please not concrete!

 

Am I the only one who thinks concrete trenches look cool on inverted coasters?

I got it too, but proceeded anyways and it seems to be fine.

This is going to be an added water splash, just like Diamondback!

All backseat riders will wear special boots and be told to hold their feet down firmly or else it won't work properly.

 

Coaster still looks pretty fun to me, and I forgot that its fastest point won't be the bottom of the first drop.

Keep in mind, they are going to have to have a little additional clearance for any unforeseen wild life wondering under the track.

 

Trenches or landscaping will not ruin the ride experience.

 

It ruined my day when I was unsuccessful at avoiding a squirrel while driving. I can't imagine how inadvertently punting a chipmunk across the park would devastate me.

I don't really like them on any coaster, I'm guessing because they don't look natural.

^I think rides like Montu can get away with them due to the Egyptian theming, but only if they paint them the same colors and make them look like underground chambers.

On Kraken I loved the head choppers, but the cement trench was ugly in my opinion.

I too think concrete trenches look odd. They seem to me that either, 1, oops! we miscalculated on the drop and had to dig down to compensate, or mostly, 2,) we ran out of money to finish the roof on what was supposed to be an underground tunnel. A natural grass depression is by far scarier to me while riding. It really gives a much better low to the ground or terrain feeling.

Not to mention it might break your foot.

^ But I always wanted to decapitate wildlife on an inverted coaster.... I'd rather see them landscape it because it would look a lot nicer than trenches.

 

Didn't this happen here in California in the last couple of years? Except instead of wildlife it was a dude trying to retrieve his hat?

Yeah, it happened on CGA's Top Gun some time ago (and SFMM's Ninja for that matter, too).
