CINCINNATI - Kings Island revealed plans for it's newest ride, but some of you are missing the rides you grew up with.
So in the wake of the amusement parks " Banshee " release, we bring you the 9 rides you hated to say goodbye to at Kings Island.
1. The Flying Eagles:
(1972-2004) Don Helbig, who does the park's PR, says this in the number one ride park goers miss the most because it was multigenerational and started out its stint as a park amusement at Coney Island before moving to Kings Island.
2. Antique Cars
(1972-2004) The Antique Cars allowed you to drive an old-style gasoline car around a wooded course.
3. The Kenton Cove Sailboat Canal
(1972-1978): This was closed to make room for The Beast.
4. Son of Beast:
(2000-2009) Our Facebook fans said they were sad to see this wooden coaster go. RIP.
5. King Cobra
(1984-2001) The first stand-up, looping roller coaster featured a 90-foot-tall lift hill, but closed down after the maker of its parts closed its US offices.
6. Sky Ride
(1972-1980) The Sky Ride ran between Oktoberfest and The Happy Land of Hanna-Barbera, crossing International Street.
7. The Rotor
(1972-1981): Another one from Coney Island, this was a ride where you stand against the inside walls of a drum, and are stuck to the wall with centripetal force as the ride spins.
8. The Bat
(1981-1984) A thing of Kings Island folklore that was closed more than it was open. Some of our Facebook fans called for a ride resurrection .
9. Halley's Comet
(1972-1979): Another import from Coney Island.
