Have there been food trucks at the park during Saturdays? I think that may have been the case during our visits last year.

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Going to Kings Island for the 1st time since my accident. It sucks knowing I can't ride much (don't want to overdo it) but glad it's almost Haunt time.

Damn. Not sure what kind of accident you had, but I'm glad you're getting back to the park. Have a fun trip.

Worlds first dive coaster with a jojo roll
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

I wonder how difficult it would be for a B&M to pull off a dive coaster with a barrel roll twist thing like Ka/Dragster?

Portugal needs more old-school B&M's!!!

Either the coaster would have to be extremely tall (like KK or TTD) or have a really fast twist which would result in high forces, especially given how wide dive coaster trains are (and I kind of doubt B&M would do that).
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Imagine sitting on the outside of a 10-across dive coaster going down a twist like that.

That would be the most un-B&M thing to ever happen. They don’t even have the balls to make their smaller dive coasters go full 90-degrees.
