Is anyone at the park today? We are on a bit of a road trip and are passing by. Since we have platinum passes we figured we would stop by. Just curious about the wait times? I checked coaster queue but I’m not sure I fully trust it to have the most current wait times lol.

Yea, the otsr trains made this ride brutal. On a side note, we did a tour of flight of fear a few years ago, and they had a bunch of the old train cars from the ride just sitting around. I wonder what happened to them?
It's so interesting to see those Tomb Raider seats just lying around! Ugh, what I would give to experience that amazing ride again...
Also, does anyone happen to know more information about Flight of Fear's train situation? I find it so strange that the coaster opened with 4 six-car trains, and now they only run 2 five-car trains. Kings Island as a whole has pretty great operations, usually operating every ride at full capacity, and Flight of Fear is one of the more popular coasters in the park. Why would they only convert 2 of the trains to lap-bars only and shorten them? It seems bizarre.

You are definitely right. Those are HUSS restraints, for sure.
Good catch! You can tell from the pics a few posts above that Flight of fear had green restraints. I never even questioned it. I just saw discarded OTSR seats in the flight of fear bowl and assumed they were from that ride.
