  1. A very short video of the Royal Fountain Ice Rink.
  2. Looking forward to seeing where it goes after the second hill.
  3. Do you mean the lift hill when you say "pull out on the drop?" Here is Fury 325, whose trains looks almost exactly like Orion's.
  4. At first I was thinking that I can't believe that the haunted house is still up in front of the entrance, but then I remembered that they re-dress it for Winterfest.
  5. Who ever buys it will probably turn it into office buildings.
  6. I like the one with tower at the top and Vortex at the bottom at the very top of this thread. It would make a great poster!
  7. The owner of a backyard Halloween haunt is suing Kings Island for trademark infringement. He says the name Mystic Timbers might cause confusion over his haunt that is called Mystic Hotel. He claims that this could cause even more problems down the road with his amusement park he hopes to open someday. He is also suing Silver Dollar City over their new ride named Mystic River Falls. He has various other suits pending that use the word Mystic as well. He is also suing a bunch of people for using the word "Holywood" as well. I'm not sure what the connection he has with the word Hollywood. Mystic Timbers lawsuit.
  8. The food and ice cream was good, and affordable!
  9. I just looked it up. They do in deed have one, although the park is only open to the public 4 times a year.
  10. Very nice! I think the owner of this web site got to fly over the park several years ago, or maybe it was someone on the message board at the time.
  11. I had high hopes that Kings Island would at least buy the Tilt-O-World from Coney Island but it was not to be. I think Kings Island feels it is too much like The Monster (which is my favorite flat ride they have) so they probably think having both rides would be redundant. I can't remember if Stricker's Grove has a Tilt-O-Whirl, but if they don't, then it is going to be at least two hours of driving to find another one. That would be at Camden Park, just across the Ohio border in West Virginia, Then about 4 hours away there is one at Indiana Beach. Maybe some of the bigger county fairs will have one, but I don't know.
  12. I always refer to Kings Island Central as Drama Central. This was back when they had posts subjects like line jumpers and kids dribbling basketballs. I agree that these things are annoying about the park, but the threads would go for like 20+ pages long. I got the point after the first 12 posts. Then someone posted a picture of a woman's back side in Daisy Duke cut off shorts and many of the members joined in on insulting the woman and making fun of her. Then Top Gun stole a bunch of my pictures and was posting them like they were his to do so. I walked away and have rarely been back. But I regress, I now have dragged some of that drama to this thread. I shale not mention it again.
  13. I talked to a guy about why there were no lasers and fog machines this year as told, and this person told me they had to sell the laser machines to help pay towards cost of putting on that parade this year.
