I have to say... I'm very scared already to get on one of the new Windseekers! I may do it, but may end up closing my eyes.

I still cannot do a haunted house alone, no way. But I am a horror movie junkie :) I turn into scare-d-cat when I'm in a haunted house (heck, even Gobbler Getaway at Holidayworld). Again, I've seen alotta movies!

The new brick walkway going in at KI is very impressive - much more so than concrete squares.

Be thankful you never rode the Smurf ride at KI/KD.

It'd make your blood run cold. ;)

Yeah, can't do it alone. Ever see "Funhouse" from 1981? My imagination is on full throttle when I'm on any dark ride. More like, who's around which corner.

LOL!

Like I assume Billy is, I am the kind of guy who likes to date someone before I get into bed with them. Unfortunately, I have found that that is a very unpopular way to conduct oneself when it come to these topics.

What about cell phones (smart phones, I assume) falling outta pockets on these Windseekers! Ugh!

Perhaps a large net over the entire area, like many of the B&M coasters have.

This kinda worry wasn't a big deal years ago. Those damn slippery cell phones!

Net? They're gonna need a quarter acre sneeze shield -- except it won't be for sneezes...

Not exactly Mr. Hooper's high-water mark.

as for the cell phones flying out issue...... Tivoi Copenhagen were RUTHLESS about making you empty your pockets. Not complying, not riding. they had see through plastic bins for your stuff. I was very reluctant to leave my stuff there, wallets, keys, even my chapstick!

However, the same issues apply to S&S tower rides (turbo Drops specifically), so we'll see how this plays out.

If Kings island, or the other Windseeker parks, forced people to empty their pockets before riding, I am sure that they would also state that they are not responsible for those items being lost or stolen. If that was the case, I would not ride, and that would be very unfortunate, because I am really looking forward to Windseeker. My wallet stays with me.

Awww.. come on! That movie rocks in every way, they sure don't make em like that anymore :)

They don't make Funhouses like that either, anymore ... that's sad too :(

Places like Holidayworld and even Dollywood manage to help you stow your stuff safely, help you doing it, and don't make you feel second class doing it. Now that's service ;)

Free lockers while you ride...

I don't understand why rides don't have more pouches like what was on Tomb Raider at Kings Island. Put it in, zip it up, and go.
