    Airtimes Smoothness

    Really fun ride, but it's a tad forgettable tbh. It doesn't really have memorable elements.

    This is a classic hyper coaster and even made my grey out which was not expected.

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors

    Diamondback is an amazing B&M Hyper Coaster is for sure the best B&M Hyper Coaster I've Ridden. The ride has amazing airtime. Especially on the first drop if you're sitting anywhere towards the backrow. The first 3 hills give very strong ejector airtime if your in the front row. Towards the back its very strong flojector airtime. After the mid course brake run the drop off the mid course is actually pretty good as in the front you get some solid floater going off of it and some good flojector towards the backrow going off of it. The final hills deliver amazing floater airtime before the splashdown. Diamondback is an amazing B&M hyper coaster and in my opinion. Probably the best B&M hyper coaster in North America

    This is one of the best B&M hypers out there and for very good reason. This has some of the most sustained floater ever in the back on those big camelbacks and the drop which are helped by the extra drag of the staggered seat trains. The smaller hills in the second half give some solid floater too and the valleys and turns give some of the better positives on a B&M hyper. The splashdown is also a super unique touch to finish out an amazing coaster. Diamondback even has some almost ejector level airtime in the front on those big camelbacks but I think I still prefer the back. The wooded setting also gives this a super dark and excellent night ride. Honestly this isn't too far off from being the best in the park, it's that good.

    Perfect roller coaster, my number two overall coaster, it actually provides ejector airtime on two occasions

    Airtimes First Drop Fun

    After an eight-year coaster hiatus due to some rough headbangers, this is the ride that made me love roller coasters again. It has a great first drop and B&M floater airtime, but pace and power are what separates this from some of the other models. There’s a good chance you’ll get wet in the back row from the splashdown as well.

    Airtimes Smoothness Dead spots

    Diamondback is nothing but floater airtime. That's all it does. It does it really well. Personally, I'm not super drawn to floater airtime, so this wasn't a particular favorite in the park, but it is pretty good compared to other B&M Hypers, and it is a fun ride. If you want floater airtime, this ride is for you.

    Rivals Mako for me and may surprass it depending on the day. It crushed Orion.

    Pretty chill ride like every B&M hyper. However this is definitely my favorite because you can get some ridiculous room and enjoy all of the amazing extremely sustained floater and then violently slam back down in your seat.

    Airtimes Location Duration

    It's tall, it's a B&M, and you know exactly what you are going to get. Lots of long duration airtime hills, notably more than Orion next door. The finale is a spectacle for off ride, but does nothing to the train. Location is perfect, using the hills and woods to extract more than the sum of the mechanical parts. Staff absolutely know what they are doing and left plenty of room for the obscene airtime this generates. Great ride in a great park.

    Comfort Smoothness Disappointing!

    B&M delivers the usual smooth ride, and while it has some fun elements, it rates about 7 on the thrill scale. Still, it's a coaster I enjoy riding multiple times in a day.

    Rode in rows 3 and 7 on the staggered seats. I was surprised that the floater airtime was strong and sustained everywhere. Every hill delivers, and it never felt slow over the hills like I feared it would with a long train. The turnaround felt really fast as well. The layout is excellent for airtime, but not overkill. Also, this is placed beautifully in the park. Being able to walk under the drop is so cool.

    While I may prefer Orion overall, Diamondback is a very close second in the park. Offers some of the best floater airtime on any ride. The first drop is phenomenal and I love the splashdown effect towards the end. It's currently my 3rd favorite B&M hyper behind Candymonium and Nitro.

    Airtimes First Drop Fun

    Diamondback is by far one of the best hyper coasters out there with a fantastic drop, beautiful setting, and strong airtime, and some intense moments! During my first visit to Kings Island in September 2021, I was able to get two rides in total with one being in row 13 and my second ride in the front row. I personally prefer the front row because you feel the air and the wind more than towards the back. This thing is an airtime machine! Every single hill gives super strong and sustained floater air, especially the first camelback which actually gives 5-second sustained flojector airtime and also feels similar to Candymonium’s first camelback. The helixes on this ride were also really intense, as both of them made me gray out! I also grayed out on the hammerhead turn as the train was entering and exiting the element. That turn also felt a bit snappy towards the back row! My favorite part of the ride is probably the first drop because of how good the airtime is on that drop! If you sit towards the front of the train, you go flying as you get the strong sustained floater air but if you sit in the back of the train, you just get ejected out of your seat as you just go flying! I also really like the splashdown effect towards the end of the ride, which adds some great scenery to the ride and also adds on to the experience in general. Overall, Diamondback is one airtime machine and by far one of the best hyper coasters out there with a fantastic drop, beautiful setting, and strong airtime, and some intense moments!

    Airtimes Lap Bar Duration Rattle

    This ride has great sustained floater, a great first drop, a great setting, and some of the best lap bars ever. However, the ride has a very noticeable rattle. It doesn’t make the ride bad, it’s just a bit annoying.

    Best B&M and it’s not even close. Definitely has a rattle but for this ride I think it adds or at least doesn’t hurt the ride. Wasn’t expecting to fall for a B&M hyper so much but here I am. The only B&M I immediately wanted to get back in line and ride again.

    Capacity Lap Bar Smoothness

    I was really looking forward to this. We rode it twice and had no desire to ride it again--even with less than 5 minute wait times. It was quite a disappointment. It is just too good to be fun. By that I mean it is liquid smooth, but it lacks intensity. Yes, it is tall and yes it is fast, but it feels almost a bit lethargic. I didn't experience any of the awesome floater air I was anticipating. They don't let you choose where you sit anymore--which is truly a terrible decision, but we got lucky on the first ride and got the back row. It just didn't deliver. I wanted to ride in the front to see if it is better, but I didn't get a chance as you have to sit where they tell you. We got our second ride about 3-4 rows back from the front. Equally disappointing. It is in a completely different class than Goliath at SFOG. Goliath is way, way better. On paper they are very similar, but Diamondback just doesn't do much. No air. No intensity. Without those, what is the point?

    This is a great B&M hyper. It has some of the best and most sustained floater I've experienced, especially the first 2 hills. Plus it's really fun running through the woods

    Airtimes First Drop Fun

    One of if not my favorite B&M Hyper. You get great views of the whole park and the drop is insane and feels like your floating the whole time. The airtime's are also great on this time so that means that every foot of track serves a purpose. Lines can get long so try to do your best and get there before the park opens then go straight to Diamondback and ride it before the lines get long. Sometimes you may even get a second chance to ride it again later in the day. Even though I haven't ridden Orion yet with all the research and countless POV's I have been through. I think myself and many others agree that Diamondback is a little better then Orion. But there both Hyper's so they have similar elements except Diamondback has the water element at the end. Overall Diamondback is an amazing Hyper and is a staple and must do at King's Island.

    Flat out airtime machine. Slight rattle in the back but it does not take away from the ride at all.

    This BLEW ME AWAY!!! What a fantastic roller coaster. It's by far the best B&M Hyper I've ridden and it's in my top 3 currently which is amazing. What an awesome ride. It's got a slight rattle after the turnaround, but that doesn't effect the ride enough to have it as a con. And that splashdown in the back can get you wet which is awesome on a hot day... Go back row and enjoy your awesome ride!

    Lots and lots of floater airtime throughout the entire ride. Splashdown is nice too. A bit shaky, but that doesn't detract much from the ride.

    Airtimes Location Layout

    Diamondback is my second favorite B&M Hyper just behind Mako. I love the rides consistent floater airtime throughout its unique and great layout out in th woods. I love the splash down finale but do have one complaint. The ride is not well paced. The trim kills a whole lot of the speed with those long staggered trains and then the MCBR finishes the job. This probably wouldn’t have been an issue if I went in expecting the slower pace but I was expecting Mako. Still a great smooth Hyper with some awesome floater.

    A bit of a one trick pony, but the airtime on Diamondback is quite strong. You haven't lived until you've put your arms out, Rose from Titanic style, in the back row. The splashdown is exhilarating when you do.

    9.3 out of 10! The best of this line of coaster, got airtime from front and back of the train. I do not like this type of train, so I am shocked of how good of rollercoaster this is.

    It seems as if the new seats have gotten rid of the rattle, or at least lessened it! It's much more enjoyable now.

    First Drop Fun Disappointing! Layout Intensity

    My least favorite B&M hyper. The airtime is only mild floater, and the boring, uninspired layout doesn't make up for it. The coaster peters out after the midcourse even more than before, with almost no airtime for the rest of the ride. It's fun, but feels mediocre in comparison to others of the model. Extremely overhyped.
