  1. Personally, I'd like for the wooded section of the ride (after 2nd drop) to remain dark similar to The Beast post-lift hill. Some lights would be okay in the lift / plaza area, but give me a another pitch-black ride in the woods and I'll be stoked! Just my thoughts on the matter. Very excited for this ride!
  2. Looks like there's some sort of "500" error when trying to load the park's website.... Possibly receiving an updated site similar to what Cedar Point just changed over to?.... EDIT: Site is back up but I would expect a total update and look change to the site very soon.
  3. Not usually an Opening Day go-er due to crowds, especially on seasons when new rides debut..... BUT.... Do any of you guys happen to know if FastLane is usually offered on Opening Day? And was it available for use on Banshee for it's Opening Day?
  4. I remember seeing this at IAAPA. Been really hoping ever since then that we'd see a park in the States get one. And here we go! Very excited.
  5. ^ Agreed! It feels as though it has been an eternity since we've been able to see that much progress at once! It also looks as if most of the general structural work, aside from the station and shed area, has been completed from what I can tell.
  6. ^ Thanks for sharing! Looks like the steel has been layed on the track, for the lift hill portion at least.
  7. Looks like there's no way to view the desktop version on mobile devices anymore?
  8. And as far as updates from the park's social media pages go, there has been very little.
  9. That would make good sense though, in theory. I mean, consider the amount of "power" people already in Sandusky, which would lend to having a closer corporate eye and approval closer to some of the other parks in the region.
  10. ^ Great idea! And I would assume that the view from up there would show a good majority of the construction, with the help of it being fall / winter and a lack of leaves on the trees.
  11. It's just a nickname that some of us have used for the footings. When the first set were poured and put into place they resembled birthday cakes, so that name just kinda stuck after that.
  12. Great! Thanks for the help, as usual!
  13. I'm not sure if this has been answered here or not yet but I can't seem to get an answer out of the park.... When renewing your Gold KI Pass, one of the perks is one free bring-a-friend ticket for a fall Sunday. Where do we get this ticket and how do we take advantage of this deal? When I bought my pass, the only voucher I got was for the free FastLane Plus..... Any help would be appreciated.
  14. I would guess tht the tallest point of the lift hill should now be visible, directly under Diamondback's second hill, from Kings Island Dr. or surrounding roads. The ride isn't very tall, but the peak at 109 ft should be somewhat visible, I would assume. Can anyone in the area confirm?
  15. ^^ Yes, they are getting closer to topping off the ride at its maximum height. ^ No. There appeared to be one bent left awaiting erection which will likely occur tomorrow morning.
