gerstlaueringvar Posted October 4, 2015 Share Posted October 4, 2015 (edited) Short trip report of our visit yesterday: First of all Kings Island was amazing! Great job Cedar Fair! It was cold and raining yesterday so the crowd was very low. FoF 3 trains wait on front row with 2 trains, FireHawk 4 trains wait with both stations, Banshee 2 trains wait for front row with 3-train-operation, Diamondback 2 trains wait for second row with 3-train-operation, Backlot Stunt 8-10 trains wait with 2-train-operation. Beast night ride front row 45 minutes with 3-train-operation. Thank you KI for opening up everything in the rain possible. I hit my #250 on Banshee, oh what a great ride! I know I've been bashing B&M for the past few years but this one is extraordinary. Sorry Batman clones but Banshee is better than you. (Slightly better but till better) Banshee is currently in my top 10, kicked Superman Krypton Coaster out of my top 10 and stands as my favorite B&M. But I might have to rethink that after a few months when the excited phase has passed. Beast night ride was just insane! It was rainy the whole day so the train was going very fast, much faster than on any video I've watched. It lived up to the hype IMO and sits as my 2nd favorite woodie between Outlaw Run and Goliath. Operation wise, Banshee crew was doing magic and around 2/5 of the trains had to slow down on the lift. The other rides are going pretty slow but still better than SFGAm. As for the haunts, we did the Board game one and Delta Delta Die. Both have quite high quality but the scariest thing were actually the scare actors everywhere around the park, especially Planet Snoopy. Here are some of the photos: Gummy bear on Racer's track... Banshee doing her thing. The shape of the first loop looks so weird! You can literally tell they used coat hangers! What a waste of money! Group photo! Chris, Zach, Matt, me had the Lift motor! Oh Vekoma! This thing stucked like this for a few minutes. FireHawk is very good, I prefer it to Superman clones. They light up the Eiffle Tower like this at night. Thank you Kings Island for a wonderful day! Vortex! Edited October 4, 2015 by gerstlaueringvar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
