    31 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Kings Island

    Since I have worked in a music store for eternity I can relate to this. I will see in Billboard Magazine where it will say something like :THE BIGGEST SELLING SINGLE EVER* Then you read the asterisk part at the bootom of the page and you find something like this: *By a male artist born in South America between the ages of 34-38. I don't even bother believing the hype anymore. Thanks for the interesting facts! I totally agree! It is just a ploy to sell or get more attention. Whether it be music, cars, or roller coasters.

    I added a picture I found of it. Apparently, 2 weeks after the ride opened with the stand up trains, a woman was fatatlly wounded. The park quickly restored the roller coaster back to its orignal state.

    Also in the same year that the King Cobra opened (1984) at Six Flags St. Louis, they added standup trains to their mine roller coaster (River King Mine Train) and called it Rail Blazer. This also lasted for one year like the Extremeroller due to mechanical problems.

    Diamondback! Size Restrictions?

    No it will be the first functioning one where it locks in to provide a real feel. There is a button that releases it. So this will be there first one at kings island.

    Kings Dominion 4/10

    Still go and take your chances. It is a great park! Also Busch Gardens is only about an hour away and not 2 hours. It is definitely worth the drive!

    Diamondback! Size Restrictions?

    It is something that hasn't been displayed out front of a ride before. I am interested in seeing it.

    Diamondback! Size Restrictions?

    There will actually be a full functioning seat outside of Diamondback. It will mimic an actual seat on the ride. This was brought up a couple of months ago by Don.
