  1. As does Flight Deck, Drop Tower, and The Crypt. Yet, look where we are now.
  2. Racer (The old Red White and Blue color scheme) Outpost 5
  3. Thanks for the 'present' Robb! I enjoyed watching.
  4. Cedar Fair purchase is hardly a done deal http://www.sanduskyregister.com/articles/2...ont/1814332.txt
  5. This wouldn't surprise me. And the terrain itself couldn't have been helping the ride at all either. Flight Deck is also based on some rugged terrain, and this could be causing stress as well.
  6. Hm. Maybe I'll actually be able to make it to the park on opening day this year.
  7. A Christmas Story for sure! Such a classic. Snow vs. No Snow
  8. Trust me, I don't want to see Flight Deck go away either. But if Kings Island does decide to remove this great family attraction, I'm afraid there won't be much we can do about it.
  9. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upseNeYXxps Merry Christmas from Cedar Fair! I find it ironic that they put up this video the day after they were bought out by Apollo.
  10. Busch did this exact thing with Big Bad Wolf. To my knowledge, there was nothing wrong maintenance-wise with the ride, it was just expensive to keep running. Big Bad Wolf also had pretty low-ridership. Sound familiar? The more I think about it, I could see Flight Deck being removed for that exact reason. The last time I remember that I was in a moderately-sized line for Flight Deck (then Top Gun) was in 2005 (before Cedar Fair took over). You can argue all you want, but there is no denying that Flight Deck has the disease of low-ridership. I'm not sure about maintenance costs on Fli
  11. As long as you remember that all posts on there are simply how I see things, then I'm cool with that!
  12. I totally understand where you are coming from. I should probably rephrase the blog post to say 'compared to Son of Beast, The Voyage feels smooth.' In no way was I trying to imply that The Voyage is a smooth coaster, as it is not. But, in my opinion, when comparing the smoothness of Son of Beast and The Voyage, The Voyage is much smoother.
  13. Somehow, I knew The Voyage would get brought up. I would like to say that I wrote that and it is totally opinionated. From what I experienced when I rode both Son of Beast and The Voyage, I found The Voyage to be much smoother than Son of Beast. I never stated that I didn't enjoy The Voyage, I just stated that I found it to be smoother than a wooden roller coaster should be. The Voyage is easily in my top ten, don't get me wrong, but when comparing The Voyage to Son of Beast, it (in my opinion) feels like a steel roller coaster.
