In an article in The Enquirer, the park says that testing has gone well and the ride will open on Friday, April 28 to the public.
Read the entire article on The Enquirer's site.

The article says that PKI has 13 coasters. Why can't they get it right? The Racer is ONE rollercoaster. Do we need to go through this again? But I can't wait to ride Jr. though. That first drop and 118 ft. tall loop is going to be wicked. Who's definately going on April 28th? I surely am. I want to see Sonny be unleashed.

I love Kings Island, but 13 coasters? C'mon PKI folks, Scooby's Goaster Coaster and Taxi Jam DO NOT COUNT! Also, let's only count the Racer once. Parks should only count the coasters that you have to be at least 48 inches tall to ride (meaning Adult coasters) After all, were the ones BUYING the tickets.

According to the Roller Coaster Database, they are counted as roller coasters. So are Cedar Point's kiddie coasters. The database does count ALL kiddie coasters as coasters.
