    Kings Island replied to a comment on Facebook saying the announcement will in fact be live streamed. Details to come next week.

    i wouldnt be surprised to a piece of track go up before the announcement, if not before then i bet within a week after the announcement. They wont waste any time.

    Agreed 100%. I will never for the life of me fathom why some enthusiasts would take joy in another park receiving what they speculate to be as an underwhelming or disappointing addition... This isn't like in sports where a "rival" team receiving a good player potentially could diminish their own chances of success, particularly if they end up in the same division/conference/league (ie. Giancarlo Stanton signing with the Yankees in 2017 - instead of the Red Sox; Bryce Harper going away from the Nationals and onto the Phillies). Had this coaster broken records, it would not have made Fury 325 any shorter, slower, or lower in quality than it is right now (nor any other ride, coaster, or attraction at Carowinds or any other park for that matter). I'm also tired of the smarmy comments such as the one made by "coasterbruh" legitimately hoping to see people upset. I put those comments in the same category as people actively hoping for certain rides to be removed simply because they don't like them. Such comments are rude, insensitive, and so unbelievably smug. No one here took enjoyment in seeing Carowinds fans upset/angry at historic Thunder Run being axed in 2015. And why would we? I for one actually greatly pity them for their loss. I know this is slightly offtopic, but what was so devastating about that removal, is not just that it left a very significant gap in what was already a subpar supporting lineup of coasters, is that a ride that can never be truly replaced, or at least not in any time-frame worth mentioning. Imagine walking down the midway of Coney Mall, looking off the left, and not seeing The Racer accentuate all those buildings and rides, as it does so very well. Would it really even BE Kings Island at that point? But I digress... Simply put, the experience of a ride at one park is completely independent from the experience of a ride at another. Therefore, it should not behoove any well-meaning enthusiast to want the latest addition at their non-home park to be 'disappointing'. If anything, you should hope for the opposite (Count me among those who really would like to finally see the next notable ground up coaster at NFJTP, ya know, the first one since...El Toro in 2006 :/ ) That having said, I'm sure that the comments discussed above do not represent CarowindsConnection as a whole and they're probably mostly nice people... But as for the individual predicting that this will be the 'weakest' of the three B&M gigas, all I have to is we'll just see that about... We will just wait and see...

    I really think that if Kings Island doesn't do a tunnel at the bottom of the first drop, they will be missing out. A tunnel would be perfect for a space like/ sci-fi themed coaster.

    Technically yes if they modified the chain lift but why would you want to do that on a rollercoaster with such long trains, you waste speed and it isn’t even a vertical drop.

    From the Change.org site: From the Change.org site: “AUG 6, 2019 — Kings Island has yielded to our request and set an announcement date "Everything Will Be Revealed". View More Here! Here's What We Know: According to recently discovered documentation, Project X started with the Shooting Star coaster and a series of other "rides" and will continue long into the foreseeable future. What We Don't Know: What is the Purpose of Project X? Why the cloak of secrecy? Are there clues in the statement about the ride and future rides in the Xbase area.?

    Spent a full day at the park yesterday and couldn't have asked for a better day, walk ons for every ride! I got 20 rides in and probably sat out another 10 that other people in my group did. I didn't see anything new and noteworthy for the construction, but it was cool to finally see the posters in person and get a peek at the construction site. People are definitely buzzing about the new coaster, every other conversation I overheard was about the new giga! I'm cutting together a short video of the day and I'm kicking myself for not getting any footage of the posters or construction.

    Like Mystic Timbers I suspect there will be a cart or stand near the exit to sell merchandise for the new coaster (and hey, maybe FoF too, a girl can hope). Then the majority of the merchandise will be in Emporium and the other shops.

    I looked at the MT leaked layout and it doesn't have the tunnel listed on the turnaround. So an above ground tunnel isn't out of the question right now.

    Just out of curiosity why are some lines dotted on the track itself vs solid? I know what blueprint wise it means hidden/not visible from the current plane. But is this a rule being followed here? Just seems odd to do some portions solid but other not.

    I think they should do 4 tunnels. And at the end of the ride, a 540 degree double helix. And this ride should cover over 30 acres with the terrain heavily influencing it.

    Idk why but this made me realize how great of a name “Shooting Star” would be for a FoF retheme. I’m not saying I think they will retheme FoF, I’m just saying it would fit really well if they wanted to, and it would pay homage to the coaster they say “started it all.” While I don’t think they will change it, it’s definitely a possibility (See Flight Deck to Bat when Banshee was built) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Some enthusiast sites thrive on promoting negativity, and donkeys. Some enthusiast sites that are linked to a specific park only want their park to be the best by finding fault with another park. For some it's a rivalry. For others it is just plain fun! KIC (specifically PKIC) had a few members that would put CP down any chance they had back in the day. It should be noted that KIC does have some of the most open-minded enthusiasts when it comes to other parks that can be found. Attitude starts from the top down...... In the early 2000 I was lucky enough to live close enough to CP & a pass to PKI due to relatives living 20 minutes from the park. Each park has enough unique features that "comparing" isn't fair to either one. ( I personally LOVE Hershey & BGW as much as KI & CP).

    @Waltny I hope not, I'd like to ride the coaster, not wait in the queue while they clean the train and run it empty Had this lovely experience waiting for DB last time... Side note, I know someone just posted some awesome high res photos in the last couple of days, but we are headed to the park in the morning... Any interest in seeing some more posted tomorrow night or sunday?

    I'm talking after that. It would be at the very bottom of the drop pullout (similar to Leviathan). The headchopper moment is at the beginning of the pullout. Also, it would be nice to have multiple tunnels, but I'm not so sure if we'll see more than one or two. My vote for two tunnels would be 1) bottom of drop pullout and 2) bottom of helix that goes under drop. Another idea I've had is at the bottom of the turnaround where you spiral down into the tunnel. That would be fun.

    Maybe a themed tunnel at the first drop. Not just a tunnel that you go through like Leviathan, but a tunnel with theming. Maybe fog or a light effect simulating traveling through space.

    I don't know if this has been said yet, but we can probably expect something unique with this coaster. Kings Island likes to do that. Firehawk was a rare model Diamondback's splashdown Banshee's length Mystic Timber's shed and that intense zig zag before the shed We can surely expect either a world record or a unique element (inversion...?)

    Maybe they could do 3 tunnels similar to The Beast. And again with the helix, similar to The Beast also. It could have a tunnel around the helix, and again, like The Beast.

    Im sure it could be done but... the back half of the train wouldnt be over the crest and it would take a lot of juice to move that back half of that train from a dead stop up and over the crest. And that is a nightmare for maintenance. This is the same reasons when the train leaves the lift still remains in motion from my understanding

    If they really wanted to, they could probably set up a temporary stand or use FoF former photo area. Not a walk in gift shop, but certainly large enough to have a counter and some T-shirts behind it.
