Yesterday I had a wonderful day at PKI. That park is fun and exiting and so are the rides.
Arrival- When we got to Kings Island, we rode the Adventure Express. I know that is a small ride but it is good to get warmed up on.2/5
Racer-The Racer is a good ride and also good to get warmed up on. I didn't ride it backwards but forewards twice. The first time though, after the first drop, my lap bar(which i was holding on to) was pushed down and locked that was. The rest of the ride was murder on my theighs. That was rather unenjoyable.4/5
The Beast-Best wooden coaster on the planet. That ride was awesome. I loved the drops and the airtime. The tunnels were also a nice effect. Especially at night.5/5
The Vortex-Good ride, but a few cons. First of all the trim brakes before the corkscrews really slow ya down. They need to be set to slow it down a little less. Another con is that it was smooth but shaky. It rattled your head against the harness a lot and gave me a little headache.-3/5
Flight of Fear- This ride is awesome now that they took off the OTSRs. The lapbars are still safe and offer a more pleasent, smooth ride.5/5
Face-Off - down
Son of Beast- I didn't ride this ride but now i indefinantly regret that.
King Cobra - down
Top Gun- Fun but really short.
That was basically my whole day at Kings Island. The rides were fun and exiting. I can't wait to take my next trip, hopefully next week!

sfne guy- it was in down time half the day. When I got in line for it, it broke down. I decided to do something else. Besides, there were no trains going up the lift hill for the next 3 hours.
