Kings Island: The King of the Helix?

Thursday, April 19, 2001 2:11 PM
I just realized something about PKI. It contains 4 helices.

The Beast: 1
King Cobra: 1
Son of Beast: 2
Reptar:1 (counting the drop)

Are there any other parks with 5 or more helices?

Cedar Point has four that I can think of. Two on Gemini, and one a piece on Raptor and Cedar Creek Mine Ride. Any others I'm missing?

There is also one on the Vortex @ pki. So, that makes 7:

Vortex-1
Beast-1
SOB-2
KC-1
AE-1
Reptar-1

Total 7 *** This post was edited by gvetter on 4/19/2001. ***

gvetter, I think you have some arithmatic problems. 1+1+2+1+1=6 not 7.

I think that PKI should label themselves the Kiddie and helix captitol of the World! Anyway, i love helices especially on KC. That helix puts you 90 degrees from the ground! Who cant love that!

Wait a sec......a helix is a helix. You shouldn't be able to count a helix more than once only because it features more than one rotation.

Ravenguy98, SOB has 2 so thats why he put 2 down. 1 goes left and the second one after the loop goes right.

SOB has two seperates helixes. I've not ridden Nessie in a while but if all of the helixes continue in the same direction, how many would that be? How do you count a helix? 1 for each turn or 1 for each set? Anyway, if this comes through, PKI can be Wooden, Kiddie, and Helix capital of the World. Wooden is of course tied with PKD, but you can count PKI, because of the records. If anyone cares, SFGAdv is the inversion capitol with 26. I know PKI has 15 and in 7th place.
