This is my fifth demolition on my track record. Screechin Eagle, SOB, Greezed Lighting and Twisted Twins previously.

Edit: Correction, sixth. Forgot that dumb Caripro Scooby Ghoster Coaster.

I'm not sad, I guess. I enjoyed this coaster when I rode it (and there's a good chance I still would), but I'm not too sentimental about it. Onward and upward!

You watch your mouth! I absolutely LOVED the Scooby Doo Ghoster Coaster! I was 17 the first time I rode it and loved every second including the random hard stop in the middle! :lmao:

Pteranodon Flyers is still running at IOA, so you could get your fill of horrible capacity kiddie coaster there.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

I am glad there's photos being shared by folks involved in the removal, so it'll at least east everyone's minds on what happens to the coaster. Besides, on the photo ban on Vengeance, it probably wouldn't make much sense for this coaster since they're not re-profiling existing structure into a new ride. They're just getting rid of it.

Seeee ya. Kings Island has the quantity of coasters, but now it's time to focus on the quality.

If you really enjoyed Firehawk I suggest you take a trip to Carowinds for Nighthawk. You might find that you like it better with the corkscrews.

Funny how opinions differ. The corkscrews on Nighthawk were actually the exact reason I prefer Firehawk and Batwing! They felt so unnatural and awkward and really tossed you around uncomfortably.

Having ridden both I can safely say I preferred Firehawks double in-line twist, helix and fly to lie over Nighthawks double corkscrew.
