^ I don't know how people just can't appreciate the 'wtf' moment of the ending on Adventure Express. My wife and I think it's hilarious.

 

I'm right there with you! I love it! Can't wait to see what my kids think of it in less than a month when they experience it for the first time!

Make sure to yell to them, "HOLD ON AND GET READY FOR THE LAUNCH!

Definitely! I'll be sure to hype up the ending as MIND BLOWING, so they'll be all prepared!

Check out these videos from WEBN who where at the park yesterday.

Who the F*** is that tool? I would lay down on the train tracks if I had to hang out with that guy for an entire morning.

 

Where's Johnny Fever!

I grew up in this area and have always appreciated the Adventure Express ending. Also that guy goes by Shroom, He added me on social media after a few interactions then blew a gasket when I was having on conversation about bands I don't like. Turns out its most of what he plays on his station so be blocked me. I still find it funny. Most people I talk to that listen to WEBN regularly can't stand him,

I think it would be cool if it had sort of a Vekoma-Madhouse-style ride section at the end by having the room inside the shed rotate.

 

That sounds like a puke-machine in the making! Imagine you're a bit dizzy after the ride and then immediately you're subjected to a Madhouse-style effect. Sounds like torture to me LOL!

I'll be honest, I ignored those videos for the very same reason. I just assumed that if there was anything of interest in them the thread would fill me in.

 

The fact that an actual media company shot it like that makes it even worse.

This is absolute truth. I have to say, I’m really hoping this is the year I can get up to KI. Mystic looks like a lot of fun.

Yes! We get a kick out of it every time. Prior to riding it for the first time, no one had any idea what was in store. It's as fun-bad as it gets, and really, the only reason to re-ride it, IMO.

^I'm not sure if I would have rather known or not known beforehand. I had been reading these boards for quite some time before I ever went on it, so I knew Adventure Express was touted as one of the "worst coaster finales," so once I got to that portion, I just laughed because I knew the ride was over. There was no real disappointment because I was "pre-disappointed." Would have been different if I got there not knowing anything and then expected something great to happen, just to be let down.

^My first at night, for sure. I rode it alone the first time. All I knew was that it had a cheesy ending but didn't know what it was.

 

Mmmm cheese. I think it's kinda funny, and too easy target for "worst ending" when there are probably worse (i.e. just lift ending without theatrics).

It's entirely possible that I missed this, but I noticed these trains do not have the blue 1950's model pickup front end like the artwork. Was that not the original design or did they call an audible?

 

There are three different colored trains (as seen from testing). We've seen a yellow/Goldish train, and a rust/orangeish train so far but we havent seen the blue one.

I have my first ever trip to King's Island coming up in the beginning of June. I'm assuming spoilers will be allowed in this thread? I'm trying to decide if I want to be surprised by what's in the shed.

I can assure you that you will need to avoid any and all coaster related internet as soon as this thing opens if you're serious about that.

I know what's in the shed.

 

It's a launched RMC giga coaster in the dark. Unfortunately it only works once per month.

 

 

I see what you did there and that's great... Hopefully they will build another canopy to help prevent wasps nests at the end of the launch

Pretty cool interview with Don:

Seeing the outside of the Shed, to me it doesn't look tall enough for some kind of drop track because it's all posts and trusses so I'm guessing not a drop track section... maybe a piece of track that barrel rolls 180 degrees?

Me n' tha midgets kinda love the ending. We derive weird pleasure from pretending to beat drums like the statues.

 

One of my favorite memories from Kings Island was a couple years ago when I ended up on Adventure Express sitting next to a kid who was probably 4 or 5 years old, his presumed mom was with another presumed sibling in front of us. He had clearly been on it before and was so excited for the ride and was going crazy the entire time, including pretending to beat drums like the statues with the biggest grin I've seen on such a small kid.
