^ i tried joining it. my season pass has been renewed and i entered the right numbers it asked for but it wouldnt let me join.

 

 

In other words, i think cedar fair should invest in a little something like Maverick for KI. The only problem is where to put it. I would say either between the racer and flight of fear and then use the area where Son Of Beast's "Rose Bowl" was or they could take out the Vortex and put something there. By all means i love the Vortex for what its worth, but over the past 5 years or so, its just got rougher and rougher every year. I say 2016 is a good year for KI and maybe possibly a new coaster. (KI almost always gets a new coaster a year after Cedar Point does )

Honestly, I think Cedar Fair is going to leave Kings Island alone for a little bit. I don't see more than a flat ride for 2016, because I'm pretty sure the relatively new management at Cedar Fair is focusing on the smaller parks for the next couple of years. I would love to see a terra-coaster back there, though.

 

But then, a wonder mountain -eseque ride could also be on the menu eventually... Should they ever remove the action theater, that is.

 

This is out of nowhere, but I was thinking about the current layout of the park, and realized that if they ever get rid of dinosaurs alive/include it with park admission, it would be pretty easy to connect a path from its location to X-Base. They'd just have to move those buildings next to the racer. That's not speculating too big, is it?

 

edit: and a dinosaur theme would work fantastically with a terra-coaster. PR people: I know you read these boards. Do this. Make this a thing. ASAP and/or now. k cool that's all I have to say

The location Dinosaurs Alive is in is perfect for a Maverick-style terrain coaster since it has changes in elevation. If it should ever happen they need to keep as many trees intact as possible like how they did the Beast.

 

Don't know how connecting to X Base would work since the only way I see it is too close to the service road alongside Racer you have to cross to get over to DA.

Dinosaurs Alive is only staying until 2019. That's 4 years. Around the time they more than likely will receive a new coaster. I don't think we'll be seeing a Dino themed coaster.

I would love to see a Coney Mall makeover in 2016 like what Kings Dominion did to their Grove with a wild and mild Flat ride (like a top spin and a tea cups ride) and then in 2017, a significant addition to the waterpark with maybe a major restaurant refurbishment.

 

Then in 2018, a large new coaster. I would like to see them hold onto Vortex as long as possible. It is a bit rough, but it's a capacity monster.

^ good point. The waterpark is indeed in for some new stuff. Maybe more on the thrill side like "looping" waterslides? they havent seen anything new since the the conversion in 2004 or so. KI has some green grass that people do not use over by the newly built wave pool. Maybe they could bring back the three big slides that where once there when it was waterworks or something close to it. Only time and Cedar Fair will tell

15 minute wait on Banshee at 3:30 on a Saturday 9/27. Weird.

 

That is how we roll at Banshee! We put through 2 million + riders this season!

 

(catching up on certain threads)

 

The trim is removed from Banshee!

I'm surprised they're doing this so soon. Is it common? I imagined they would just turn it off, or are they going to send it to rougarou?

 

Last I seen the trim brake, it was beneath Diamondback's station.
