^To be honest, when I rode Hurler a few weeks ago, I found it much rougher and a heck of a lot more painful than Son of Beast. Other than the Rose Bowl, I don't find SOB overly rough. The ride is just very boring, which is why I dislike it.

I would say the two are about even for me :shockr: . If Hurler were smooth, Hurler all the way!

If we HAVE to use SOB as firewood, I'd want a GG replacement more than a GCI!

GG is like two minutes away! Seriously, I could see a nice Gravity Group coaster going there. One that'd maybe take a third or fourth spot in MH's coaster poll.

During the tour of their office, I did see a folder with "Kings Island" on the tab! But they are already there, and have been doing work on the Beast for a few years, from what I hear.

^ Didn't those same Gravity Group designers (Larry Bill...etc...) get their career started with Beast?! (Worked under Charles Dinn for Kings Entertainment, then Dinn & Summers, then Custom Coasters?!

Took my family to Kings Island for our first trip on Saturday. We took advantage of the morning ERT on Diamondback and The Beast. Loved them both. The floater air on DBack is fun (though the coaster was more tame than I expected), and the closing helix of Beast just rocks, especially on the night ride. Great park overall, and we will definitely be back.

MASON - Kings Island will add a new thrill ride for 2011 that will “change the skyline” of the park.




Park officials said they will announce plans for the ride at a press conference on Tuesday.

The type of ride is unclear, and Kings Island is giving few hints on the subject.

“The only thing I can tell you is that it will stand taller than Diamondback,” said Don Helbig, Kings Island spokesman.

That suggests the new ride will be taller than 230 feet – the height of Diamondback’s initial hill.

Diamondback, a $22 million steel roller coaster, opened in 2009 and is the park’s last major addition.


How about world's highest game of Cornhole? Ontop of the Eiffel Tower! :P
