Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

P. 829: Adventure Port themed area announced for 2023!

Recommended Posts

Where is the life cycle of a new coaster post when you need it . . .

 

 

Here it is.

 

LIFE CYCLE OF A "NEW COASTER" THREAD ON TPR

 

1. After months of rumors and speculation, the ride is announced. The ride is immediately hit with negative views because it didn't live up to the hype coasterboy2194210 had set when he heard from his friend's uncle that it was going to be a 900 foot prototype.

 

2. Complaints about: The name, the stats, the colors, the trains, and the station layout, sometimes all in the same post. This is based off a crudely done 3D video.

 

3. Random new threads pop up in the next few weeks, breaking the news of the brand new coaster, even though the original thread is probably still on the first page near the top.

 

4. People start complaining about the lack of construction, and wonder if the ride will be finished on time.

 

5. Construction starts, people start complaining about the lack of construction updates. No pictures from 2:35 this afternoon? But another piece had been put up!!!

 

6. Criticism over the differences between the constructed portions versus the concept art begin. Page upon page of bitter feuding on whether the angle of descent was incorrect begins.

 

7. The construction is finished. People start complaining about the lack of testing, and wonder if the ride will be finished on time.

 

8. Testing starts, people start complaining about the lack of testing updates. No pictures from 2:35 this afternoon? But another train has been cycled!!!

 

9. Someone rides the coaster and reports back. If the review is so-so to good, the person obviously caught it on a bad early run. If the review is glowing, the person obviously hasn't ridden many coasters.

 

10. The ride opens. The fanboys descend en masse, declaring the ride the best coaster to ever touch god's green earth. Wild claims are thrown out, like the coaster is able to cure cancer, and has ejector airtime even on the brake run and station.

 

11. A well-travelled, highly regarded TPR member finally rides it, and gives a good but not great review. Fanboys cry foul, saying the person rode it on an off-day.

 

12. Pages upon pages of comparison to every single amusement ride known to man ensue.

 

13. As more people ride, the reviews eventually settle into a particular area (bad, moderate, good, great, excellent) and people stop posting in the thread.

 

14. Meanwhile, dirt has been dug up somewhere else in the park...the cycle begins again.

Well the name is terrible but the ride looks fun and most importantly it looks like the flume is safe.

 

I'm looking forward to it, and we'll probably use this as an excuse to go back to Kings Island next year. Thumbs up from me.

I honestly love the trains and I also love the track layout name, and theme of it, too! Good job, KI, now stop with the cliffhangers lol

 

This looks completely terrible in every way. Cedar Fair just doesn't care about quality anymore. Time to give my money to a more deserved chain. Smh.

Step one in the cycle...

I wonder how different your reaction would be if this was built at Kings Dominion.

And no Kings Island did not steal this from Kings Dominion.

Head on over to SFA or something. They've got a better ride collection, and WAY better operations

My biggest questions here are the train stats: Three trains; four riders per car and six cars per train. Whatever's in the shed must allow for three-train operation with minimal/no stacking. Also, the four riders/car and six cars/train do not sound like the typical millennium flyers to me. Maybe a typo or are these a new generation?

 

And then: Race for your life Charlie Brown: what is the status of the log flume?

 

Can't wait to hear how the night ride compares to Beast, especially with the contents of the shed. My prediction: a lot of Lockers.

Looks like a great layout to get RMCed in the future

 

But really, I'm intrigued by the surprise and new information to come, and this should be a fun construction to watch and look forward to when I'm in the area. It's not gonna be the most anticipated coaster of 2017 (surely there will be others), but it looks like it could be a really fun ride with some great moments of airtime and a great setting.

The complainers are out in full force on Facebook. I think I could even feel much of the crowd tonight going "What the hell?" LOL.

 

This ride is pretty much exactly what I thought it would be, which in one sense is disappointing since I didn't feel surprised watching the videos, but on the other hand I'm stoked that a GCI is coming to KI. While they may not be 10/10 amazing, every single one I've ridden is at least REALLY fun (except Gwazi, but that's BGT's fault lol), and pretty re-ridable. Though the whole shed thing makes me really perplexed. The thing I'm most curious about is the appearance of a lack of any radial turn into the station. It just looks like one track ends and another begins. Very odd, though it may make more sense when they actually build it. KI, you have me really curious...

 

Also, regarding the second announcement coming later, my prediction is it will be a 45th anniversary celebration with various small park upgrades. I'm not sure I would expect a second major attraction. Who knows though.

You're kidding... right? If not then please do head on over to any six flags thread... preferably Six Flags America.

 

Duh. SFA is trash and doesn't have anything compared to this.
