Hey any coaster is better than no coaster !

That's true but there is one exception to it, a coaster could be bad if it isn't equal to what it replaced *cough* Italian Job killing the Flying Eagles :evil:

^amen to that. One empty day I decided to ride all the coasters, and that was the only one I didnt go on dude to it's line...(yeah, I even did Top Bill/Little Cat) As for the whole deal with Avatar, we cant say if it's good or bad till we see the layout now can we? Im willing to bet the drop ride will be some sort of frog hopper, or a 40-50' drop ride....

I'm losing those batflyers left and right!!!!


Well, you've got a month (assuming it's still open...last time I was there it was closed) so if you want your ghoster coaster credit, I have the kid for you to borrow.....

I have mixed feelings about this...like someone else said, it's hard to see the HB theme go, because that's what I grew up with there, however, my daughter watches Nick EVERY DAY and is much more familiar with SpongeBob, Dora, Danny Phantom etc than Huckleberry Hound and the gang. I pretty much suspected that they would do this since they did the same with Carowinds.

I am excited about the updating of the rides and the fact that they are making family themed rides that adults can ride comfortably. We have video of me riding those little cars (the little tiny Corvette, Jeep firetruck) that go in a circle with Sammi when she was about 1. It ain't pretty.

Haven't heard anything about the antique cars, yet, though..........

^ You do not need a child to ride the "Ghoster Coaster" I have rode it twice. Both times by myself.

NEWS: King's Islands's Ghoster Coaster is GONE!!!

Postby robbalvey » Wed Nov 30, 2005 4:09 pm

Photos from www.pkicentral.com show that the park's Caprio Batflyer or "Ghoster Coaster" has indeed been removed:

Not sure what it was? Here's a picture to refresh your memory:

Basically, these things were pieces of crap, IMO. They had the lowest capacity of almost any coaster. I think I waited over an hour in line for this one and there were probably only about 20 or 30 people in front of me! :shock:

Legoland removed both of their Batflyers for the same reason.

That sucks. I've always wanted to ride one of those. They look so cool. But I would never wait more than 30 minutes for it.

I waited over 2 hours for it when it first opened. A few simple block breaks would solve the problem. The way PKI's had there set up it could only take about 2 people every 45-60 seconds or which is the time it took to complete the course. Anyway they didn't waste anytime ripping that sucker out and Im pretty excited to see the 2 or 3 new coasters going in. Can't wait to see some track show up on the site

I've gone pantless!

"Scoob! I, like, totally lost the Ghoster Coaster"
"Way to go, Wraggie--jerk!"


I wonder how this bodes for PKD's version. Not that it would be a great loss.
