Kings Island & Holiday World big PTR!


Recommended Posts

After riding Voyage for the first time just a few weeks ago (on opening day) I instantly fell in love, I had to come back. Just about three weeks later I found myself back at Holiday World (and Kings Island the night before).

So my friend Zach and I randomly visit KI for a few hours about once a week, and this week we went on Friday and arrived at about 4PM. We knew it was going to rain, but not as much as it did. There wasn't too many cars in the parking lot but there was about 739 buses, the park still wasn't too busy though. We knew it was going to be a great day filled with tons of rides!

Here is the billions of buses...

As we were waiting for Tom I snapped a few photos

I caught someone spitting of Eiffel Tower!

Hey theres Tom!

We all went to Diamondback hoping for a small queue wait. It was about 20 minutes which wasn't too bad

019.JPG.8d1a0c89dd762e375da8cbdeab6271eb.JPG

In line I took a random photo of Vortex. Yup...

029.thumb.JPG.018300b67760cd0e9fd9a42eed386215.JPG

So we finally get into the station, and we see this....

033.JPG.ffbc812088f31c84ce381e1adb2b7de0.JPG

Nope, it wasn't nap time. A huge storm was coming in and little did we know it, but would ruin our night

036.thumb.JPG.ce648c0ae9c10f6e976e94678f06ca0f.JPG

The storm arrived probably around 3PM. or so, and went on til' 7PM. After 7, it was no where to be found

049.thumb.JPG.3e2d0ebfdb8a5a33567dca10f3e7f2fd.JPG

After a few hours of waiting, it was down to the enthusiasts. Our group, and than Gary Coleman; the guy who recently got his 2,000th. ride on Diamondback

058.thumb.JPG.ae174bfda95505c4da9922f24f3f4137.JPG

Your probably wandering why all the sudden it's some girl holding a pizza. Well Kings Island decided since the storm went away, they would close the park. So we met up with more KICers and went to La Rosas down the street! This is Angie (Gigacoaster2k) holding a personal pizza

059.thumb.JPG.d28b13ba5281a42287952f806a2c1754.JPG

Tom ordered the fries which didn't sound too good being at a pizzeria

OM NOM NOM NOM

065.thumb.JPG.9ff0d05fef13d920ca1804c8e578a2fb.JPG

We all got super hyper and went crazy. I'll upload a video later and post it, but take my word that we all went a little insane

066.thumb.JPG.44a856ee707db7f567e70648ccd693ba.JPG

I randomly made my hair have a unicorn spike thing! Than we started talking about uniboobs

069.thumb.JPG.aa45791fc9e0ae62a20307cb830fc10b.JPG

Angie eventually lost it and died at the table. No not really, we actually stayed at the place til' it closed than had a rave in the parking lot

075.JPG.ae8051ee30ded78c2e8b650057b2b03a.JPG

Here is us (well part of us), Theres Tom, Angie, Zach, than me. Please ignore the weird faces were making, we crazy! Okay, Holiday World is up next!

Hey, I actually just got back from Holiday World again so expect another thing of photos to be posted here soon!

 

Mk, so anyways; We left La Rosas around midnight and got to Zach's house at 2AM. Than just three hours later we woke up and drove 30 minutes to Zach's friends house who lived in the middle of nowhere! I went to sleep and at about the time we arrived at Holiday World, the park was just opening. The Raven lot was full and Legend lot was getting there, we saw many buses too! Not a good sign... Honestly, I can't remember when we rode stuff or anything, so I'll just make a list of what we rode than show off the photos!

 

Rides rode:

 

Voyage: 11

Raven: 1

Legend: 3

Howler: 2

Eagle's Flight: 1

Wildebeest: 1

ZOOMbobwe: 1

Jungle Racer: 1

Otorongo: 1

Watubee: 1

 

 

I might as well say what I thought about Wildebeest. First of all, this is my old opinion as of before today. I only got to ride it once last time (this PTR) and waited two hours for it. Now since I've ridden it more, my opinion has changed! But anyways, the ride was fun but I actually liked Jungle Racer more. There were a few times where I could feel myself fly out of my seat, but I didn't get that airtime feeling. I wasn't impressed and said "I'm only riding it again if there isn't a wait" which there was still a full queue. But I later rode again (today) and now love it!

Legend obviously...

Hey it's a walkon!

084.thumb.JPG.371285e94e40eca84be9cd1315ab47b2.JPG

No it's not. That was the back queue, the front queue is pretty much filled

091.thumb.JPG.ec1926ec2db226ae7dac6dc01ad1faa2.JPG

Now it's time for some Voyage! By the way, I like this photo, but I wish I could add a little Voyage logo at the top right corner, that'd be awesome!

086.JPG.6648cffe81a6fc26a2db7f708b25f089.JPG

This was actually my first time going into the indoor queue house, but luckily we just walked passed it

088.JPG.adf298cde135c778815a661a575d59d0.JPG

They took off the back car of each train

Legend was calling our names from Splashin' Safari (oh and sorry, not Wildebeest photos in this PTR, but took some today!)

Dumb fences in the way

129.JPG.a52047fe9e9219c59b6a8b8f5c8b7600.JPG

I love how Ravage looks, but it seemed slower and smoother so less airtime

133.JPG.ea0d8d058e46a9526a2032bd6472a818.JPG

True dat' homie!

135.thumb.JPG.50e5c03f24ad50d53316b3cabe9ad3db.JPG

NOT 90º's!

171.JPG.1aa650deb287eb1f6cfea6e06b877973.JPG

Didn't people complain HW didn't have a Carousal, than once they built one, everyone was mad because the bumper boats got removed?

174.thumb.JPG.085c2f58d2d99fdfacde0bb077b16c6d.JPG

Liberty Launch, the best of the S&S drop towers I've ridden, but I still have yet to rides IB's

175.JPG.a4ab54c2a2410c43455717f831071d35.JPG

If the one at IB is even half as good as HW's it'll be a great ride!

Since we had so much fun at Holiday World, we decided to go again just a few days later.

 

This time is was me, Zach, Zach's ex-girlfriend, and Mitchell. We originally planned on getting there for opening than riding Raven until Splashin' Safari opened, than after the water park we would just ride Voyage and Legend the rest of the day with a few breaks on Raven and the 4th. of July flat rides. But since we didn't get there until 30 minutes until Splashin' Safari opened, we decided to just ride Voyage once than go to the water park. Voyage had a station wait which isn't too bad, but when we got off, the line was to the stairs.

 

After a ride on Voyage we went to Splashin' Safari for a few hours. After that we rode Legend once, than rode Voyage alot! At about 3PM. we took a break and rode Eagle's Flight twice and Liberty Launch. Than we rode Voyage some more until it closed at 4:30. I wanted to take some photos of Wildebeest and get another ride on it, so we went back to Splashin' Safari. We left the water park as it was about to close, than Mitchell & I rode Raven a few times and go the last train of the night on Legend.

003.thumb.JPG.92d79120ccd90d6bc4c8f95b2c9d39d0.JPG

We arrived at HW to see this... Not a good thing!

004.thumb.JPG.7cf74ea9625e0101ae1b4b73ec63a5ca.JPG

We decided to get one ride on Voyage than go to Splashin' Safari, it was a walkon but as we were going up the stairs, it seemed like the whole park followed us because all the sudden the line spilled out to the outside queues!

005.JPG.aa0252600df370ed3d5f9b5a7b0dc67f.JPG

I've always wandered why do people throw their bracelets on the roof? Do they think a genie will grant them a wish or something!?

007.thumb.JPG.cde2010af2a4aa357b15c58e687e1449.JPG

Another great day for photos!

008.thumb.JPG.ca2704da50db0d369d8ecb06b9e9f615.JPG

I wish they would open up this gate, it'd be so much quicker

009.thumb.JPG.7b8983eda4286867b48f49b1eb135792.JPG

Seems like every photo I have of the blue PTC, the weather is cloudy

010.thumb.JPG.b195c6c91ace249896bb59489ef6d2cd.JPG

Seriously. this was the next train and look how much sunnier it is!

014.JPG.d728b831ff8bce9952c2699648a07c31.JPG

I went to Splashin' Safari but didn't take photos (did go back later and take some) but here I am at Legend's station!

As we were getting on Voyage we saw Paula and some film crew. I asked the camera crew what they were filming for and they wouldn't tell me, it turns out it was for some boy scout thing

This midway would look so good if it got those brick style paths

Don't you agree?

032.JPG.f9dcddd121e47fbd6dc867ee0306041a.JPG

Okay since I suck at captions, I'm only going to put captions on photos that either need it, or I have something to say!

We ended up riding Raven a few times, than wanted to end the night with one last ride on Legend, which happened to be the last train of the night! And yeah, I don't know why I'm saying this in the caption of a photo of Raven's entrance...

After our ride on Legend we took a few photos in the Christmas area, which is very beautiful and probably will never get a major attraction, but thats good because it's the park's 'main street'

I really like this photo! What do you think?

Good TR. Thanks for posting this. Loved the "dueling" Voyage shot.

Thanks! I like that photo also!

 

-------------

Here is a random video from those two HW visits, I might make a few more small videos for KI and maybe a video just for Voyage later.

And yes, I know Little Freak by Usher isn't a good song choice for a video about a park that is '#1 for family fun!' but Little Freak is my favorite song, and it goes well with the clips!
