TR PHOTO: Kings Island opening day.


Recommended Posts

Well here is my trip report from Kings Island. When I got to the park it was full of people,and well of course me and my best friend chose Drop Tower as our first ride of the day.It broke down like twice while me and my friend was in line,but it was an minor break down. After that we went to the Crypt to see if they change the ride program and sadly the didn't come true,but they retheme a little. I could find some Tomb Raider theming still in the line,but by the way I still think Tomb Raider had an better ride program and theming. After that we tried to hit our first coaster,so we chose the Beast and well the line went really fast. Although it broke down while we were right next to the train of the coaster,but right after it broke down my mom text me to come on and eat. Well we got out of line and then the ride op annouce that the ride has been fix. We were bummed,but we had to go and eat though. After we got done eating we headed for Firehawk,and boy was the line long. Although we didn't care it was always this long,so I took an few pictures of the coaster and before we knew it the line was moving. When I got on the train I was pump,but I forgot how scary it was. I screamed like an man until the ride was over. Then when we got off the ride,we decided to head for Congo Falls and well I didn't ride it,becuase I remeber how bad you get wet. Well after proving my friend wrong we headed for Diamondback and well Vortex open and so on the way I took more pictures and then before I knew we were at the entrance of Diamondback. I didn't notice an rattling while riding it this time which was good,becuase it annoyed me alot while riding. When we got off we head for Whitewater Canyon,and boy was it fun and wet. I thought I was going to be like that all day,but the wetness lasted about 15 or 20 minutes. We thought why not go back to the Action Zone an ride Invertigo,so we waited like forever. Although Invertigo was actually really smooth,no head banging at all. So it started to get late and so we went over to ride the Flight of Fear. I swear I could hear the old rocket sounds that they used to have when the car lauch,up and running. But you had to pay close attention to hear it,becuase it was really loud in the station. After our awesome ride on Flight of Fear we head for our last ride of the night Vortex,well it was kinda rough,but it was still smooth though. The park was ready for opening though,becuase they only had one thing that made me mad was that Windseeker wasn't open. The rest of the day was wonderful and awesome.

Nice TR

 

What is so different about Cyrpt other than the name change?

 

-Zach

 

Well the ride has an new ride system and they cut out the third row of the ride.The car doesn't spin anymore instead it just take you upside down two times,and I mean in upside in like an loop. Also the only effect they have now is just one crappy fire effect. Tomb Raider was better in my opinion,but the Crypt at Kings Dominion is really good.

Great Photo TR, I haven't been to Kings Island since 2009, so it hasn't been too long. You're still lucky to live by such a close "big" theme park... Al though Kings Island didn't impress me too much, with me finding the rides a little dull, it would still be a nice park to live by!

 

Thanks for posting. Never realized how close Diamondback got to the Crypt!

I don't find it bad to ride at all and I'm not a huge fan of "spinny rides", though I have been getting better about that. The ride is more relaxing than intense for me, of course if you are afraid of heights it could be different for you. But for me classic swing rides make my stomach more queasy than WindSeeker.

Thanks,I think I can handle the height well since I'm used to I305 & DT & can handle riding them without a problem.
