Kings Island tops out Diamondback coaster
Written by Robert Niles
Yesterday at 2:42 p.m. workers at Kings Island amusement park, outside Cincinnati, installed the final section of track for Diamondback, the park's new Bolliger & Mabillard Mega Coaster.Tweet
That means that construction is on schedule for an April debut for the $22 million coaster, with its "stadium seating" design. You can take a virtual ride on Diamondback on our listing page, and follow the construction on Kings Island's live Diamondback webcam.
Brrr. Snow. Frankly, I'm impressed with any coaster builder working in that. I'd say "hats off," but in that snow, y'all really need to keep 'em on.
Update: I'm feeling a bit sick today, so I'm not going to be able to get out to a park for a Tuesday visit. Will try later in the week, though.
Also, I'd love to take requests from folks on which SoCal attractions they'd like me to visit and post photos/recaps/comments/interviews on the site. Post requests in the comments or e-mail 'em to me. (Link at bottom of page.)
