Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Just finished marathoning Banshee for A Kid Again. They gave me two KI tickets just because WoW! (It was supposed to be for the top three donation receivers).As for Banshee, I noticed the rear of the train is pretty chattery / jackhammer-ish on the outside seats. The inside seats are smooth as butter. Strange because they are 5 inches apart and the wheel is right in the middle of them. Anything from the middle to the front is SUPER SMOOTH. Inside very back rear is the most intense, but also the roughest.

It's a great coaster. Just as forceful as Raptor and the last slow roll into the helix is AWESOME!! 27 rides. I may be the record holder haha. I took #20 with Rob Alvey himself.

Umm. Excuse me. You forgot the "superfluous B"

 

Glad Banshee is getting some positive cred. Makes me look forward to this more than I was on the Mini New Hotness.

I was there and left. No freakin' way. Banshee lines must be 8 hrs long. They will hit full capacity today guaranteed. If you plan on going, stay home.

 

Or go ride almost anything else.

 

Opening days for big new rides are always busy. That's why I tend to avoid them.

I agree with Robb about the 2nd vertical loop, love it when I coaster throws that in towards the end.

Also, very excited that Banshee DOES NOT have a cobra roll, hate those things...the "batwing thingy" is much better.

Can't wait to ride it in May.

I'm with you. NOT a fan of cobra rolls. They looks cool though! That batwing makes me happy. Its a cool maneuver. It doesn't thrust you into the inversion. It sails smoothly into it.

Did GateKeeper have a 6 hour line at opening? That's insane!! Kings Island definitely has a winner.

 

From what I remember, Gatekeeper didn't surpass I'd say 3-4 hours. I waited 3, and got in to the park 45 mins early with platinum but it surely could have gone longer

That's insane that the line is so long!!! But here's my question.....You can see the line snaking back towards the Eiffel Tower, but there seems to also be a line on the service roads too. If you look behind Slingshot, you can see people there and also on the other blacktopped path by that. Wondering if one line is for GP and other for FP+. Anyone on site that can tell the difference?
