Well I went to kings island today,arrived just a little past 10am.Well my brother and my dad went to Diamondback first and me not being able to ride Diamondback me and my mom went to The Beast which was running better then ever today and not a lot of breaking today for a change. Next me and my little brother would split up and go ride rides on our own and meet up with them later but ( time for the best part of my trip ) my dad and brother insisted to try the test b.c they always think b.c they can ride it that I can. Like always I got over to the Test seat and I got two clicks like always then like always the guy comes over to and try's to get it down one more click and guess what I passed for the first time I got 3 clicks saw the SOLID GREEN LIGHT and he told me I can ride it. So I got in line which was only around a 10 min wait. When I got to the train I was beginning to second guess the test seat but with help from the ride associates I got that 3 click and guess what I Finally Rode Diamondback !!!!!
Sorry if this is getting old but if you remember I was there opening day and waited in the parking lot for about 3 hours then another hour to ride and got in line not thinking I would fit and yes it hit me I did not fit and hardly got one click on the ride and I even got the first rider shirt I never got to wear. So I'm very very glad I got to ride Diamondback today and I rode it 2 times today and plan on riding in the future. A big thank you to the crew of Diamondback for helping me fit in the seat..... gosh I hate having big thighs :( After my first ride I rode The Beast again this time not in the front but the back. At this point it was just me and my brother. We decided to go on the Eiffel Tower on looked down and the Diamondback line was only pretty short. So we rode Diamondback again and waited around 10 min. Next to just mess around we rode the Carousel which was a nice change. Oh yeah almost forgot there slowly starting to put up some haunt props and getting them out of one of the barns by the racers. They had a lot of the outdoor box props found in Cornstalkers and Tombstone Territory. Next because it was very hot outside we went to the Coney Mall bathroom by Outer Hanks. Next we were going to ride the racers but only on side was working and the line was not that bad but we really did not want to wait about 10 min ha. Also from the Tower view Firehawk was operating and as always the parks longest wait to ride it.Pretty much next we watched a few shows first was Flashback to the 80's which was great today but I saw a 2 members of the entertainment department taking notes on the show and like gave them a grade.Next walked around a bit,all the lines were very short today and the reasons I think there were was that the waterpark.My mom told me later in the day they waited like 25 min for Tasmanian Typhoon and 15 for the lazy river. Well at 4m we all grouped back together to ride Delirium which we only waited about 10 min.Next we split again and me and my brother watched Endless Summer on Ice the last show of the day.Something kinda funny but bad happened while waiting the for the show to start Scooby was there and when the guy said clap if you like any of the tricks and as soon as he said that a female skater must had tripped up because she tripped and flew through the curtain on her but and everyone clapped.Next comment on the show remember Kings Island to close the side curtains all the way to cover up the changing room because a lot of people were watching that part of the stage rather then the show. :rolleyes: Well after that we deiced to leave it was about 6 when we left it was a very good day for me and yes I can finally ride Diamondback.
Diamondback Review !
Smoothness:10 *note* the smoothest coaster I have ever been on.
Uniqueness: 8.5 towards nine *note* Before Busch Gardens I had never ridden a B&M Hyper coaster and the first one I road was Apollo's Chariot which was the first hyper to have the T Harness but I was impressed with the unique stadium design of Diamondback but with that said I find Apollo's a little more size friendly.
Track: 8 I wish there was more G-Forces yes I know it's all about Air-time but Apollo's had the unique Helix and intense turns.
Now for my overall review I will have the final verdict of 8 as of right now having ridden it two times and I must say riding it the second time just made the ride better. It has to be one of my favorite steel coaster and will rank-up there with the best of them.I love the ride and hope to ride agian
Thanks for reading and I hope you have enjoyed my TR. Sorry if parts of the TR are a little messy I apologize I'm pretty much tired and a little stressed.
