Work continues at Paramount's Kings Island. PKI Zone recently posted new photos from the park. The photos include what looks like parts of the actual ride for Tomb Raider: The Ride.

Guys..... I'll admit it. It's a Topspin. The day has come. Just look at this picture.... http://www.small-business-webs.com/pkizone/construction42.jpg and compare it to the side blue print here that WAS on screamscape. It's a Top Spin. Or something like it. If you want the blue print you can email me. coasterkid31@hotmail.com

This should be pretty cool either considering the amount of money and theming.  I just hope its ready for opening weekend. 

Now if only adults were allowed to ride the Haunted Mansion ride . . .

Thank GOD you guys did not do the aqua and pink! I would have hung myself from a loop! Ya know, I'd give anything to check bars on my baby! Wonder if they will do the "friends & family" thing again. I don't live close enough, or I'd apply for PT help (though with my luck I'd get stuck selling Rugrats candy). :)

Aqua and pink eh?  Sounds a lot like sea foam and coral like Xcelerator.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

PKI Fanatic,

Check this out...

and those top spins look different than the ride layout on Screamscape blueprints.

Guys, I just went by PKI today with my camera and took a certain part of the ride that had arrived over the weekend.  This certain part would blow PKI's surprise as to what TR:TR is.  As of now I will not post it on PKI Zone for awhile until I think it will be safe to do so.  I will say this, it is going to be an awesome ride :).

I plead to the 5th Amendment :).  I wiil not say any thing.  My mouth is shut.  I will say this, this part of the ride is in the park's parking lot.

Oh, please let it be a coaster. Last thing we need now is another piece of junk thrill ride. PKI, we want a good roller coaster.
