    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Had to swing by today to drop something off at the park so naturally, I brought the DSLR and my buddy Drew and we had some good clean fun getting legal shots from nearby parking lots that were open and accessed legally. From a distance, it looks so dominant. It’ll certainly be one of the first...

    California 2019 Region Trip://Day 6~ 1.5 Hours for 25 Miles vs. 1 Hour for 300 Miles

    Day 6 I woke up in the predawn darkness at 6 am to get a move on to LAX, knowing that it would take an hour and a half to get 25 miles because, well, California. I checked my phone to see multiple missed calls, texts, and voicemails from my uncle...he was already at the airport! My grandma had...

    Your Year in Review: 2019 edition on page 5

    It’s that time again. Halloween has passed, the coasters are closing down, and parks are getting ready for the winter season. So as things cool down, let’s reminisce on season’s past! Below, post your picks and maybe a short explanation if you want for the following categories: Best New To You...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    So I’m here with my buddy Connor and we just got off our last ever ride on Vortex, but we’re also looking to the future since Orion is currently towering over the doomed Arrow looper and holy crap it’s massive! It’s visible from the park skyline and it’s about as tall as Banshee if viewed...

    Cedar Point Fall Season Crowding 2019: How to fix?

    If you’ve seen it at all on Facebook this year, Cedar Point has been a complete madhouse this fall season. Last year I went on a Saturday and it was ridiculous, I waited an hour on the causeway just to drive back to my hotel on the mainland after. The park has hit capacity, traffic backed up all...

    Tracking Your Children at Park

    There’s a few tracking chips and the like that have been suggested, but how could anyone forget these? Your 14 year-old might not be too happy with it but it’s a surefire way to keep track of the kiddos. :P Hope you guys have fun in all seriousness! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SFMM | West Coast Racers | Premier Quad Launch Möbius Sky Rocket

    Honestly, I was set to get all of the New For 2019 coasters in the US before this one screwed me over last month, so I’m now hoping that it opens in 2020 so I still have hope. :P And it’s quite a shame if I’m speaking freely, it looks like an awesome machine that’ll dish out a pretty good ride...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    @Hyde pretty much covered it, but I was there too and snagged a few photos. Vortex’s departure won’t be the only thing clearly different on the skyline in 2020... Obviously it’s probably a bit taller than the coaster will be, but the crane is up and it’s MASSIVE. It can be seen from several...

    California 2019 Region Trip://Day 6~ 1.5 Hours for 25 Miles vs. 1 Hour for 300 Miles

    Thanks a ton, it's an accomplishment I'm pretty proud of. Mexico was supposed to be 2021's region trip, but considering one of the parks on it just got shut down, I might go elsewhere internationally. It's just a smidge more to get to Sweden and my top of bucket list coaster is there sooo... I...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Welp boys, here I am home from work as I got a nasty infection on my finger at the park yesterday. So while I sit at home enjoying the healing process now is probably a good time to post the Orion pics I took yesterday! As noted, Orion’s brake run is taking shape and is honestly just about as...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Chilling at the park right now and not only do I have more photos up, there’s a support in place I was not aware of! Got a lot of crane hardware ready to go. There’s this big sort of staging area in the parking lot near the front of the Banshee lot for cranes and there’s a few flatbed trucks...

    Best floorless

    I’m like... Superman Hydra Medusa Dark Knight Patriot Bizarro Rougarou Scream Only needing Firebird and Kraken to clean out the set domestically, though I’ve been told neither are pleasant experiences, which I believe at least as for Firebird given how awful Apocalypse was. So I think the high...

    Six Flags Offers Bid to Purchase Cedar Fair

    Personally, it’s not that I don’t like Six Flags, considering I did four of their parks this year and enjoyed myself to some extent. However, I do think that their investment strategies are vastly different and might not be beneficial to some of the smaller parks. Cedar Fair goes tall, giving...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Bottom of the drop is in place, just gotta throw two feet of track on top of it and our much too short giga will be topped off! :P Okay but I’m all seriousness, bottom of the drop is legitimately up! Or down! It’s there! Sent from my...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Ight, went to the park yesterday and had an awesome time saying goodbye to Vortex, finally finding an Orion shirt that fit me, and checking out some of the new scare zone stuff. Oh, and something was going down behind Racer, looked like they were building some kinda blue thing. Orion is now...

    California 2019 Region Trip://Day 6~ 1.5 Hours for 25 Miles vs. 1 Hour for 300 Miles

    Day 4 We were up well before the crack of dawn, needing to get to SJC for an early AF parting flight, one that would take Kaylee back to Ohio and Ben and I onto the second leg of the trip. We were fortunately close to the airport, but I needed to gas up before returning the rental car...

    Lift is starting to go up! Shouldn’t be long now before it’s visible from the skyline! Source: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Base of the drop went in today per the webcam. Looks like she should start reaching for the stars very soon! We went yesterday for a few hours but left the cameras behind since we’re going next week. Looks like groundwork is either complete...

    What do you find most scary? / Phobias?

    I’m pretty public about this but I’m actually claustrophobic to the point that it affects my ability to enjoy Haunt. I can’t do enclosed spaces and I can’t do people sneaking into my personal space, it’s too much. I just got out of my first ever Haunt maze in the watered down family-friendly...
