First went over the Action Zone, Face Off was also closed, but did Delirium and Drop Zone pretty quickly. Both very fun. Then did Top Gun, and this ride has simply seen better days (though not too much better since it isn't a great ride). I then saw the SOB was running trains with empty seats, and decided against my better judgment to ride. My girlfriend refused and didn't go, she was the smart one. How this ride hasn't torn and shook itself apart yet is beyond me. It is pathetic and sad when the "star ride" has EMPTY SEATS running. I mean, can you imagine going to CP and seeing Millennium without riders? Ride absolutely blasted my neck, it felt like I was in a fight and repeatedly getting punched in the neck. It is possibly the worst roller coaster I have ever ridden due to the pain it causes. Anyway, went over, did small rides like swings, etc, all quick. Then walked on Racer and Vortex, both rougher and beat me up as well. I started to wonder if there was a smooth ride in the entire park.
The 3D show was pretty sweet, and a good break, then went over to Beast area. Did Tomb Raider, and it was much rougher than usual as well, and definitely gave me a nice swift kick to the crotch. Afterwards, went to the Beast, the one ride I knew I would like. Great as usual, some heavy trims, but still it was getting darker and that ride just gets better. Finished up with Face Off, solid night ride, while Stunt Track was STILL CLOSED and didn't open for the entire day, which was a main reason to go.
I don't know if it is because I have just been to KI so much in my life, or by going to Cedar Point the past few years has spoiled me, but I am simply not impressed by KI at all. The rides are not good, the only roller coaster I would go back on would be the Beast, and maybe Face Off. The rest are way to rough, slow, or just stupid. Anyone else feel this way?! I look around and just wish there was an Intamin or B&M ride to just give me a smooth, fast flight. Oh well, overall, not a bad day, but I don't look to go back for quite a while. The Beast though, still rules for wood coasters.
The backwards Racer always makes me laugh, even to this day.
Adventure Express and Flight of Fear are my fave coasters in the park, whenever I can get away from Drop Zone and Delirium. :-)
Second in the water park , the Bonzai pipeline was only running 2 slides, along with the slide with 4 slides that dumps into a pool. That only had two slides running? I do not understand having water pumping down the slide but a metal chair blocking anyone from using it. Is this just a way to slow down the peeps?
Tomb Raider seemed to be running a longer program today, I just think instead of flip and hold forever, they should program more flipping. I mean do you have to be upside down watching water bubble for 30 seconds? Give me some more flips. Still a decent ride though my neice loved it.
I got 2 rides on the beast. My last ride was very bad. Sat in the back seat, train was flying around the track today, but man is that ride rough anymore. The second hill after the first drop I was thrown into my lapbar and jammed it into my legs, the rest of the ride was so damn uncomfortable that I couldnt enjoy it. See why that is falling from everyones list, just too dang rough anymore.
I find myself enjoying the waterpark there more than the actual themepark anymore because of the roughness of all the coasters. Thinking about season passes to the Beach next year instead.
I'm on the list of B&M and Intamin complainers at KI, but you just can't argue the decisions of a park that repeatedly pulls in the attendance numbers they do.
