    Resurrect a KI Coaster

    I chose The Bat. I visited the park this summer with my cousin who hadn't been to the park in years. He loved the current Bat when it was themed to Top Gun and was so excited when he found out it was still open. The Bat, the former Top Gun and Flight Deck, is one of my favorite coasters at the park. The only downside is that the coaster has a shorter ride duration and a layout similar to Vortex at Canadas Wonderland. The original Bat, as well as quite a few other early Arrow Suspended coasters, had two lift hills and unique layouts. The problem was the mechanical issues that arose as it was a prototype, as well as the wear and tear on the structure. If it were built with banked track and with the technical bugs worked out, it could've honestly been one of the best coasters at Kings Island.

    Things KI Can Do For Money

    I think Kings Island should consider making some merchandise limited edition and be marketed as such. Doing so would increase the exclusivety and make the merchandise feel more like collector items instead of just nic nacs. Would anyone here sell their piece of Son of Beast track for the same price they bought it for? I doubt it.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Invertigo is a coaster. It's located next to the front gate at KI. What am I missing here?

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    @NewD4y20 Obviously, I could be wrong, but I thought I heard a higher up from Cedar Fair explicitly say that there would be no front gate coaster at KI, or KD.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I can see if it used the old Son of Beast station it being relevant. That doesn't seem likely to me with Banshee over there. The only other thing I can think of is the possible Giga having a single loop. If that becomes reality I will be jumping for joy and fist pumping at the same time. Can't say I blame the public. I was shown it by someone and almost believed it for a minute since I had been out of the coaster loop for a bit. I got on here and saw there was no thread about it so I knew it wasn't real. Seems like shooting people down about it on social media would be fun for the people that like to anoint themselves as unofficial moderators on here.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    There's a TON of people sharing @RuthlessAirtimes video on facebook and twitter thinking its the real deal. I've seen @chugh43 going up to bat telling people it's just a fan video

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    The speculation is that the new giga if we get one will be some sort of recincarnation of the SoB because Outpost 5 was the SoB station. So it could be a diversion but know one knows till the official announcement

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Assuming isn't the same as speculating. That's why I specifically used terms that were indefinite. Speculating about something can be fun. Want to make a friendly wager? I predict the B&M project will be a Giga, what say you? If one of us gets it right, we can change the other person's signature on here to say what we want it to.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I’m refering to the suspected B&M project that was discovered in documentation that has been posted on this site. By stating that a Dive Machine could be the next new project after “the Giga” infers that the upcoming B&M project has been confirmed to be a Giga. In reality, that’s only speculation at this point. Nothing has been confirmed about the type of coaster that could be installed aside from the documents stating that B&M will be involved. Could it be a Giga? It sure could. It could also be a Dive Machine or Wing Coaster for all we know. There has been plenty of speculation over the years on this site that will always lead to some disappointment amongst the enthusiast community. Just recently, a select few thought the park was going to spend $20,000,000 + to rebuild the failed Son of Beast because of Halloween decorations at another park. That was not the case. While there has been a lot of speculation about a Giga headed our way (alongside some impressive concepts and renderings), there’s nothing that points to it directly. It’s silly to make assumptions when none of us(or very few silent members of this site) really know what’s coming next. The assumptions about a Giga being “for sure” always give me a chuckle. That’s all.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    @beastfan11 I said expected and maybe. I did not say confirmed anywhere in my post. Like you, I don't have the authority to say what's confirmed or not, until it is. What "project" are you referencing to and has it been confirmed??

    exactly.
  16. When a round ends and another begins, you can vote immediately on the new matches, even if your vote ended the last round 1 minute earlier for example. Then the 48 hours before you vote again "clock" turns back on.

    And it’s been confirmed that the project is going to be a Giga?

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    A dive coaster seems like a good replacement for Invertigo(Face-Off). Would make a good front gate coaster, and it will be different than Diamondback and the expected Giga coaster because it will have inversions. So maybe it will be the next new coaster after the giga. Stay tuned.

    Winterfest 2018 Discussion Thread

    It was appx 26-28 degrees when I arrived last Saturday at 4:30 is and I think it bottomed out at 24 degrees. Both coasters were running all night long everytime I went by them.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Diversion no. Enthusiasts created the "confusion" not the park. The park was just using Outpost 5 as theming. The logo has been around for years.

    I don't see how the Outpost 5/SoB references tie into a future project. Could it just be a diversion from the park to confuse enthusiasts?

    Oktoberfest has been brought up a few different times now. Where is this Oktoberfest area that you all speak of?

    Resurrect a KI Coaster

    Son of Beast without the jackhammering is my choice. Actually I would also really like to bring back all 3 of the Kings Island coasters I didn't get to ride. Those would be Bavarian Beetle, Demon, and The Bat. The Bat being the most intriguing to me of those 3.

    That estimate is nowhere near what the actual figure would be. Otherwise, they would have opted for a longer length of coaster. The mitigating factor was price in the coaster and to build a lift hill of 400 ft was not cost effective, so they opted for a launched coaster instead.
