    Kings Island... WITH MY MOM?!

    Thanks Cool about your mom. I have to say my parent's use to take us all over just to go to amusement parks. Our Family use to take Motorhome trips just to parks, I have way to many defunct Parks to count. Though after my dad died in 2000 my mom still get into riding the coasters with the grand kids. She loves to spoil them. :D

    Son of Beast Closed for Rest of 2009- Maybe Forever

    You can also look at Dorney and Hercules. Another wooden coaster bites the dust. Maintance will kill this one I think. They have had way to many problems I think this could be it for SOB.

    Paramount Park Maps?

    yeah I did that for many parks that I went too. My greatest find was keeping my 1976 Magic Mountain map showing Great American Revolution as the new addidtion. I'll have to look at my stuff and see what I have. Too much stuff now.

    Private Event on April 19th

    Very Cool! What's funny I was visiting the park one time and the buyout company let a few of in for free, I was just meeting with PR dept. and someone from the company asked if we wanted to come in.

    What are your most memorable moments at KI?

    First getting to ride the bat 8 times, second riding the Beast with no brakes ( man what a rush) 4 times. 2 in the morning with the late Ruth Voss, and later that week night ride with a football team at closing. Let's just say I all you need is 10 feet of the second lift hill. Too give you a prescective you go past the second e vac stairs. Last riding many of the coaster at a event with weird Al.

    If the Bat were still here...

    I'm working on that, as soon as I get most of the video's done I'm going to be doing a few uploads to some sites. KI stuff will most likely end up here.

    If the Bat were still here...

    I got to ride the Bat 8 times the last day it operated. It was a cool ride but every rough. I'm finally getting most of my video's transfered to DVD and I found a gem as in a rare video from the park just after the ride was completed. You could hear the metal bang from the swing on the side to side parts.. I did post a video of the ride here on the website for those to view. A Arrow promo. video and a kids world news clip. Mark
