    How is your tolerance of roughness?

    I'd say I'm decently tolerant of roughness, up to a point... I don't take much issue with The Beast and Racer's roughness. I also enjoy Wildcat at Hersheypark, and that has a reputation of being pretty rough. The only two woodies I've ridden that I'd write off entirely due to roughness would...

    Intamin Unveils Four New Concepts

    Yeah, I mean I don't really get the outrage either, especially considering how much influence Intamin has had on what other manufacturers do throughout history. If anything, other manufacturers have borrowed and built upon Intamin's ideas/concepts moreso than the other way around. All things...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Well hey, glad I'm not the only one who digs the theming. Sure, it ain't Disney. But...neither are the ticket prices. So, fair compromise if you ask me! As for your thoughts on the ride itself. Yeah can't say I didn't see that coming. I just had this sense all throughout reading your review...

    Is Phantom’s Revenge at Kennywood classed as an Arrow or a Morgan?

    Yeah I mean at this point Phantom is an Arrow about as much as Steel Vengeance is a Dinn.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Hmm. It seems I'm split into both camps at the same time on this. One one hand, I still fully agree with all the critiques, criticisms, and qualms regarding the ride's layout/stats. Yes, its still disappointing that its not actually 300 ft, not a long ride, and has mediocre elements etc. I get...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Yes, the outside is rather dull, but I am intrigued for the Quonset and custom music. Interesting fact: Orion and Mystic Timbers are the only coasters this side of the pond to feature IMAscores.

    Hersheypark | Chocolatetown | 2019/2020 Park Expansion

    Honestly, I think that above all else was the key mistake. If they'd just chose standard T-bar trains, it'd probably be much more widely praised by the GP, and universally praised by enthusiasts...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I'll chime in on this one. I'd describe the opinions on KI to be more "polarizing" than necessarily 'low', in that yes, for as many people that consider it to be one of their least favorite parks, there are a lot who consider it one of their favorite parks. And I'd say that has to do with their...

    Rank the B&M Hyper coasters

    For me, Orion's biggest uphill battle will be overcoming the ridiculously short length. Ugh. I mean if you don't wanna go all that imaginative in terms of elements then fine, and if you wanna use the terrain to get to a 300ft drop instead of making the actual lift >300, that's ok too I guess...

    Coasters you like that others don’t and a coaster you don’t like that others do

    Coaster I like that others don't: Rougarou at Cedar Point I have heard some pretty negative things about this ride, so much to the point that I question whether I'm riding the same coaster others are. The layout is solid, and I have never had a rough or headbangy experience on it. Granted, I...

    Coronavirus: Impact on Theme Parks

    Some info on Kings Island. Reservations for passholders go live sometime tomorrow (Tuesday, 6/23). Unfortunately with these early closings, it...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    One thing to mention about the Paramount additions, is that while it is true some of them were very well themed individually speaking, a common critique is that the themes of their rides often ran incongruent to the respective areas they resided in. Examples being Tomb Raider in Ohio-Frontier...

    Cancelled theme park projects you wish had come to fruition

    In the early 90's there were plans to recreate the Rye Aeroplane at Kings Island. It was to be situated above where Diamondback's splashdown is now (used to be a lake there). I wish it had come to fruition even if just to prevent Son of Beast from happening, and all the time, money, and brain...

    The next major project to be announced/discovered ?

    Dorney Park supposedly is slated for a GG wooden shuttle in 2021, although at the expense of Possessed... Plans are shown in this video:

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    We can pretty much confirm Orion though. Its been mentioned several times by Don Helbig, Chad Showalter etc. (KI PR), and in the virus updates. I believe the the First Rider Event and Media Day are set for July 1st, with July 2nd-11th the passholder only days of course.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    If the parks open this year, I'd bet that Orion will open too, given thats its pretty much ready to go besides maybe some loose ends to finish in the entrance/que. That having said, Gov. Dewine was asked on Ohio amusement parks (CP specifically) the other day, and did not indicate a definitive...
