Which is better, Firehawk or Vortex?

 

I'm in the minority that still really likes Firehawk. Vortex I IMO was running like crap last year

 

I couldn't agree more. I actually really like Firehawk and it's one of the only coasters that makes me say, "Oh $hit!" Vortex, on the other hand, flat out sucks. It's the roughest coaster in Ohio. I'd take a ride on Mean Streak any day before Vortex.

I would love to see Vortex removed for a modern looper, maybe something from Mack.

 

Firehawk will always hold a special place in my heart because I was on the ride's crew in 2001 when it was X-Flight at SFWoA/GL. I take one spin on it every year for nostalgia.

 

Vortex I'll never waste my time on again, even if they announced 2016 was it's last season.

I think you might be one of the only "Mean Streak Lakers." I don't know that I could name any others, come to think of it.

Is something changing with the Fast Lane system at Kings Island? It's been taken off their website entirely and I was wondering about the pricing structure for trip planning. On all the other Cedar Fair websites it's just listed as unavailable until closer to the season starts when pricing is releases, but on their site it's removed completely.

Hmm...Is Kings Island Hinting at an iSpeed clone?

 

 

 

It's just some sort of stock image I think. That or CP and KI decided they're getting similar coasters.

 

And I think like every other Cedar Fair Park too

 

Yes, this picture was used for all American Cedar Fair parks to advertise the Presidents Day Weekend Sale. So, I don't gather any speculations or rumours here unless Dorney Park is getting this coaster as well...

From the "I can't find it" Dept...

 

For next year's (2017) plans, I am "thinking about" getting to Coasterstock.

 

Does it run after or before Memorial Day Weekend, usually? Thanks in advance.

You just have to love the mind games parks play on us. I know the one with framework is for a new funnel cake stand. But the one clear over by Diamondback's helix? Hm No Clue. I know it cant be for white water. Maybe they're finally doing something with the old Tomb Raider Building! photo creds to the park

 

 

In other news i have heard that slide pieces have been moved to the Soak City Parking lot so its just a matter of time before (if they havent already) begin to be placed.

I feel like the parks putting in new thrill/family rides this year. I mean they've asked multiple times about rides people miss. Im just hoping they do something with Tomb Raiders old building. All its used for now its a haunt maze and i think Haunt storage.

 

 

Also couple things to note (Refer to attached images):

 

-A new basketball game is being constructed underneath Dback's helix (Photo Cred to the parks instagram)

 

-A friend of mine sent me a picture today of the progress on Tropical Plunge and you can see that no slide pieces have been installed yet but they are putting the top floor in place for the trap door slides

 

- Looks to be some land clearing back behind FOF and Firehawk..... MAYBE for a new coaster but who knows. I do know the park would not build flat rides or something all the way back there and make guests walk a long way to an attraction like that............oh wait they did that with Top Gun/Flight deck/ The Bat

 

-Progress on the new funnel cake stand is progressing well (Photo creds to the parks instagram)

 

-No updates have been posted about the new entrance/exit for WWC OR no updates on the new soccer stars game being installed in Rivertown

Hi guys, I'm planning to visit KI this June and not having been there I went through POV videos on Youtube and prioritised the rides as per below.

You will probably get the idea of what kind of ride I prefer from the list - that said, I may have missed some good stuff so it would be appreciated if you guys can make recommendations and reasons why. Note that I'll be visiting a bunch of other parks so you will come across similar posts elsewhere - and I had a feedback that one couldn't get the idea of what kind of ride I prefer, I guess probably because it's only small sample of rides I listed for a specific park but if you look through my other posts you would get there (IMO, that is) - regardless, any feedback is welcome.

 

1. Diamondback

2. Vortex, Banshee

3. Firehawk, The Bat

4, Backlot Stunt Coaster

5. The Beast, Invertigo

6. The Racer, Adventure Express

 

Cheers,

Sam
