Kings Island OPENING DAY 2012

Cold, wind, rain...not what I expected for opening day at Kings Island, which celebrates it's 40th anniversary this season. The unseasonable weather made for a smaller crowd than usual, and most everything was open and running, so we were able to ride quite a bit of stuff. I arrived just before 11am and met up with friends in the afternoon. Here are highlights of my 11 hours in the park. Filmed 4/28/12.

Besides the lack of sunshine during the day, I had some technical issues with this video, so my apologies for the quality of some scenes. Hopefully these issues will be resolved next time out!

Vortex is An Arrow designed by Ron Toomer, it replaced The Bat which was
also an earlier Arrow but had multiple mechanical problems and was way
before its time. Arrow i also designed Big Bad Wolf, Iron Dragon,
Shockwave, Anaconda and Top Gun (Now Flight Deck) to Name a Few..I believe
Face Off or Invertigo as its now called is a Vekoma design. Hope this helps

Nice video, haven't been there since 2000! I wonder if anyones ever trying
getting in the fountain in the front? I can see why they don't let people
but would be nice, people do that at the real Eiffel Tower in Paris and it
looks refreshing with the nice scenery! I've heard they used to make the
fountain an ice skating rink during the winter. But I don't believe they
do that anymore, shame. :)

the park.

Both rides' lines are usually a bit long for me, so I don't ride them all
that often. I really like FOF and will ride it over & over if there's no
line. Firehawk on the other hand is probably one of my least favorite
coasters. I prefer a more traditional sit down experience.

personally thought PT was better. BB is just too... well... weird for me.)
