Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

Vortex is ok, just ok. Does it hurt....yes, but that's to be expected with old Arrow loopers. I would say the worst rollercoaster now is The Racer. It has gotten so rough and hurts your back. Not to mention the trains have you so shove into them. I know The Racer will never leave, but hopefully they can retrack parts of it. As far as Vortex, I can see it leaving in the next 5 years also. There is a ton of land there. Not just where it is currently, but also behind it in The Beast's wooded areas. KI really has a lot of land to expand into.

Someone didn't ride in the middle bench of a 3-bench PTC.

Vortex isn't bad, it is more like jerky

 

Expensive yet delicious?

 

I don't know... I went on Vortex many many years ago and was pretty traumatized by it (so much so that at SFGAM the only ride I skipped was Demon because it even LOOKED like it, lol); the fact I have been back to KI maybe 3 more times since and never gave it another shot is pretty bad. I'll be going this summer and I'll give it another shot but something tells me I'm going to regret it

 

I've been on other Arrows and enjoyed them, but I just remember Vortex being terrible... and I usually find something good in all coasters. It looks like I'm the minority here, though.

No, you'll love it. That turn into the MCBR is really good. I always wondered what it would be like to put an Arrow looper train on a Wild Mouse, and now I know.

If you're that interested, there's a TPR video somewhere of a park legitimately building a Wild Mouse out of, legend has it, spare (possibly knock-off) Arrow parts, including an Arrow train trimmed down to a single car.

Yeah the last time I was at Kings Island was June 2015 and I was actually pretty surprised at how smooth and enjoyable it was. I did sit in a middle row, of course, because that's the only place to sit on a 3-bench PTC train unless you're in the very front row of The Beast at night.

Earlier this year I bought a Gold Pass for the 2017 season. I understand that early ride times are a benefit. Can I bring a non pass holder with me, or is that individual? (This is the first time I've bought a season pass)

 

You can only bring non-passholders into early ride time on the Bring -A-Friend days.

Yet the question remains . . . what's in the shed?

Most definitely a completely pointless 10 foot drop track section. Only for the train to be lifted back up and excitingly rolled into the station at speeds of 1.5 mph.

Just some old power tools, and I think a leaf blower, a weed wacker, two broken rakes, a small wasps nest, a rusty chainsaw we been trying to sell on Craigslist. Oh and your brother Jimmys porno mags.

 

But the weed wacker runs like a dream, that I can tell you.

I say its a portal to another dimension. Dont know to what dimension but just a different one then ours. The time will be different then ours too. So while it will only take a few seconds to get through the shed in this dimension we will spend what seems like hours. Once we leave the shed and get done with the coaster. We will say its one of the greats coasters ever! Maybe inside the dimension will be another coaster that would make the great mega coasters like Fury325,I-305,and M Force look like measly carnie kiddie coasters! It will be a thrilling adventure of a life time!
