Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

p. 832: Camp Snoopy announced for 2024!

Recommended Posts

As long as the station looks awesome (crossing my fingers), I really don't care if there are shade canopies. I mean, they need something there to give people in line shade, and trees wouldn't be fully grown by summer.

I'm just happy there are shade canopies. Gatekeeper's queue doesn't have any of them in the portion of the line that's actually full all of the time, but they have plenty over by the lake in the part of the queue that's only full when the line is huge.

 

I never realized that, but you are completely right. I was lucky that the day I actually waited in line that it wasn't very sunny. But anyways, this is an "amusement" park we are analyzing. The queue is shaded, has some fun visuals, and it's a high capacity ride so the queue should move well. What more can you ask from a Cedar Fair park? We are not going to find Disney and Universal-esque queues in most amusement parks. Heck, this is much better than what I have seen from the likes of Six Flags. Even a more unique place like Kennywood has more terrible queues than this. Just look at how cheaply they installed Sky Rocket and Black Widow to name a couple. In my opinion, this entire Banshee installation looks impressive. It's simple, yet has personality, and can be easily maintained on the amusement park level.

Just checking, is this a new sized B&M track?

 

I've been wondering the same thing. It appears to be a little larger, like they may have used their flying coaster track for this ride. Does anyone know if these new trains are any wider than the older ones? Maybe they needed a slightly larger tack for that? Just a thought...

Hey Guys,

 

Are TPR members invited to the media day event? If not, what coaster clubs are invited?

 

Thanks,

 

Cyrus

Yes, they are. But you have to be already signed up for it, the deadline was in March.

Pretty strict with the entry of this media day. I'm not sure if any others were like that, this will be my first.

 

^ lol, beat me to it.

I'm guessing it would be way too much work to put Bat on Fastlane due to it's insanely long and narrow queue line. They probably couldn't divide it so they'd need to build a new path. That's a shame as it's really one of the best coasters in the park.

^ Exactly. The drop towers would be too similar if they didn't.

I prefer the look of the one at KI. The drop towers with a more large diameter for seating look awkward IMO.

V The best part is that it spins an exact 360 degrees, so whatever direction your seat is in on the ground will be pointing the same direction when it falls.

I've always wondered why it didn't have fast lane. We always skip it because of it.

I've also wondered why kings Island and kings Dominion's drop towers look so different. I mean they are both designed and built by Intamin.

 

The two towers are different because they hold a different number of people.

I've also never seen the line over 15 minutes, outside of Saturdays during the Haunt. Most days it only has about a 2 train wait. This year, I would expect lines to increase a bit, however, due to its proximity to Banshee.
