  1. Well they removed the page.....finally.
  2. wow .... trying not to make this a one word post.
  3. This is exciting for reasons unknown to many.
  4. The same thing happened to me earlier this year for Jurassic Park River Adventure. On the website it said it would be closed the following month for 2 weeks. However when we got there it was closed and was closed every day for the 3 days we were there. One of my favorite rides anywhere since I was very little and bringing someone who had never been to Universal before, I was quite upset myself.
  5. I am excited to see what they do next year.
  6. Revenge of the Mummy is better. I agree with you 100%.
  7. I am one of the only people I know that thoroughly enjoys Disaster. I like the Fast and Furious movies (as of late at least) but I wish they would of taken out something else, like Twister (I realize that's a small location, still). Its bitter sweet, so long as they make the ride good unlike that junk in California. I am just happy I took a trip there earlier this year and was able to ride it before the removal. So long Frank Kincaid...
  8. Although the premise of the idea is good Pyro, I do not see it coming to fruition because of the circumstances already listed out in the articles above.
  9. I sort of like post-apocalyptic. Not to say I like seeing an abandoned area that use to house a great park.
  10. TMNT SHELL SHOCK at Mall of America is amazing. Its basically a replica of that in turtles theme.
  11. New slide complex.
  12. What doesn't make sense to me is if they are removing the train why did Don post on YouTube just 3 months ago a video about the train? Here is the description for that video below. Many people today have never been on a train. And still fewer people have been on a real steam train. That’s why Kings Island’s railroad appeals to guests of all ages. Kings Island’s locomotives have been at the park since it opened in 1972 and are scale replicas of the famous 1800’s locomotive known as The General, which was the subject of the Great Locomotive Chase of the American Civil War. Although Kings Island’s engines are fired by propane rather than coal, the 400-gallon boilers on each engine provide plenty of capacity to make them real authentic steam-spitting locomotives. Each of the two engines – Blue No. 12 and Green No. 19 – pulls six coaches and when both trains are filled to capacity, 960 guests can be on the rail at one time. Soon after the trains pull out of the “old” depot on the 36-inch gauge track, passengers pass under the first drop of the Diamondback roller coaster and over a 65-foot natural ravine on a steel and wood trestle. The track winds through several fields, stopping at the Soak City Waterpark. After dropping off and picking up guests at the 33-acre waterpark, the trains then loop around through woods and back into the depot. A round trip on the train covers 1-1/4 miles of track. The Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad has given more than 52 million rides since 1972, the second-most in the park’s 43-year history. It’s record-year was 1973, when 2,378,749 rides were given.

  14. Brown track has shown up at Cedar Point near Breakers Express.
  15. You are correct well spotted.
