Kings Island Closes "The Crypt (Formerly Tomb Raider the Ride)" - CoasterBuzz
Sadly my last 3 attempts at riding this, 2 of them we had to evacuate after being seating, and my final ride evolved one swing without going upside down, and then the ride stopped and we had to do again a mechanical failure exit. Here's a direct link to the tweet. I am not upset about this. The Crypt has been a pretty terrible ride the last few years. I wish something amazing and unique would take it's spot, like perhaps a traditional log flume.
