Re: Kings Island Gets In Trouble

Ha, that's funny. A couple of years ago, they had a doghouse at KI with "Vick" painted on it. And, a couple of guys in football jerseys.

Indiana Beach on 8/30

Yay, we're going to Indiana Beach tomorrow with Waterboy. We haven't been since 2005 so we're excited. Now... when to tell the kids?

Re: Interesting fact from Kings Island.

The Kings Island website had a confirmation of this early today. It's gone now though. I'm very curious what the transformation is going to be like.

Re: Carowinds Intimidator

I'm torn. Both rides look pretty awesome. I think that Carowinds has the better of the two two though.

I think CP is building a Splash Battle ride.

Re: Help Negative-G

I just contributed to the pledge drive. Do I get a tote bag now? The link did not work for me but I knew your PayPal ID.

On a more serious note, I appreciate the site being ad free and am happy to chip in a bit to keep it running. Thanks, Paul!

Re: SOB: Will It Stay Or Go?

Greg, you might want to let the coals burn for a while before cooking. Personally, I plan on peeing on the wood before it burns. :)

Not yet. We're going to see if we can hold off till we hit the road.

Most of the day it was probably about 10 MPH or so. Later though, it got windy as a storm rolled in. We made it back to our cars just in time for the rain to come.

Diamondback with Tommy Lee

Guess who Beth and I rode Diamondback with this afternoon... Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe. Of course, we had no idea who it was. One of his buddies tried to throw the devil horns down the first drop but chickened out about 1/3 the way down. We saw Don Helbig from KI snapping photos during the ride. Here...

Re: How Do You Count Racers?

I actually counted The Racer at Kings Island 3 times for a short period:

Left-Forward
Right-Backward
Right-Forward

I've since reduced it to two.

My theory is that if you can remove one side without affecting the other, it's two coasters.

Those are two beautiful coasters. Too bad only one of them works.
