Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Looks like station work is about to begin! I have a feeling you'll get nice up close and personal with the train as the loading platform is on the left side of the train tracks, facing Diamondback. (Judging by the animated shed that was shown).

Also for what's in the shed. It will be fun. (Isn't everything at ki)

It's a joke, dude, don't get too wrung-up about it.

 

Which of those 2 ridiculous things was the joke? Or were they both jokes? You're quite the jokester.

Looks like the sarcasm train skipped us both on this one. My original comment was mocking the common belief that vertical construction means everything. Although yes, while neither ride is behind schedule at this point, KI does seem to have much more vertical construction finished, while BG seems to be focusing more on the tunnels and station. Between that and the fence-sitting RMC Mean Streak, only time will tell if any of these open on, behind, or ahead of time.

Boldikus metioned on the Dutch Wonderland thread that he thinks its gonna be an unloading platform.

 

Relax bud, I was being facetious. Unless there's like strippers and beer in the shed, I could care less.

I still think Banshee is one of the more beautiful coasters out there

 

I agree. It's definitely one of my most favorite to look at and watch cycle. The awesome logo, the mild themeing, the Banshee cry before the drop, and the B&M roar really give this coaster some personality.

Why didn't I hear the banshee cry

 

I'm sorry but this gave me the biggest laugh I've had in the last two days. Granted I haven't been laughing that much and I'm not sure why this in particular tickled me but thank you sir.

Compared to the other coasters in the park, I think Banshee gives the biggest "big boy coaster" vibe out of them all from its sound, speed, and intensity. Not to mention the sheer size of it all.

Lift is done! and curious as to why the drop, and prelift have what looks to be anti rollbacks.

They aren't anti-rollbacks because they're in the wrong direction, but I would agree that it's their track construction guide. I think they'll install two planks side by side as Cedar Fair did with Gold Striker, and what they've added on many other of their wood coasters now.
