  1. ^Just saying if we choose to vote one of you off the island, I think we’re gonna keep the one that flies in the spy plane lmao Back to the topic at hand, I think is this is a good point to reiterate how different B&M and Intamin gigas are. I’ve heard quite a few concerns that this new coaster will be just like Mille and there’s no point to building it when CP is “right there.” If you’ve ridden any combination of an Intamin giga and a B&M giga, it’s clear to see how different they actually are. The Intamins seem more focused on positives and low to the ground speed while the B&Ms, though also focusing on speed, put more attention into airtime and lats. I personally prefer that latter much more as I love airtime. Fury is an incredible ride, and if our giga rides anything like fury (which I’m sure it will), it will be nothing like Mille.

  2. It’s hard to tell tbh. I think it’ll peak around 4-5 hours for opening weekend and maybe even the second weekend, but then I’d guess 1-2 hours max after that. Most summer days I’d assume less than an hour, but as I said before, it’s really hard to tell. SV consistently pulls multi-hour waits even into this year. I think Fury would be a closer comparison though. Whenever I’ve gone to Carowinds, it hasn’t been more than 30 minutes (though I first went in 2016). Plus, I believe KI pulls larger numbers on average than Carowinds (please correct me if I am wrong). My guess, though, is that it will be around an hour wait the whole first year, as B&Ms are GP pleasers. Many normal park guests will flock to this ride unlike I305 which is often a station wait and rarely gets too crowded (from what I’ve been told.) It will be crowded, but hopefully worth the wait!

  3. ^I don’t think it’s related. I believe they did the same thing last year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. It only makes sense the worst giga has the worst college’s colors! I’m of course being facetious... about it being the worst giga. Love the color, can’t say the same about the University of Kentucky... DB, being as controversial as ever Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’d say Mille is “The Hunk of Junk” and KIs will be “The Better Blue Coaster” [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just realized how similar that track color is to Banshees supports. Love that blue though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. ^Or we keep them in this thread to spice it up while we wait between pictures of the same blue track and pictures of the same land clearing. Variety is the spice of life. Budget giga jokes are the spice of Decoding 2020. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. There have been quite a few made. Just look up “RMC Son of Beast” and have fun watching. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. ^Thats not even funny. Flashlight are expensive! Don’t get our hopes up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. ^True. I always forget about DB. I just think about Banshee and MT, which (I believe) both started on the first day of the season. If not, they were very near the beginning. To me it’s just strange that there’s been next to nothing in terms of teasing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I know we’ve been saying it for a while now, but I really do think teasing will start within a week. It makes sense to wait until Grand Carnivale starts so as to not take away from it, but I don’t think they’ll wait all the way until it’s finished as, going off when announcements have been done in years past, that would give them only about a month of teasing before the announcement. Who knows, maybe that’s what they have planned. Maybe they won’t tease at all. Imo that would be very strange given the scale of this project, but if not teasing causes more hype, so be it. Plus, if their intent was to have people spread rumors about a giga before teasing starts, mission accomplished. Most everyone, including a lot of the GP, know something big is coming, most likely a 300’ y’all coaster. However, with no really big recent developments (For the point of argument, im saying the hype around track color has died down), I think some teasing should be in order to keep people excited. Just my two cents on the matter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Also no matter what (unless its a new coaster type) B&M will call it a hyper model, as is the case with Fury and Levi. Giga is a term by Intamin when Millennium Force was built. B&M just refers to their coasters by what their mode is. For example, multiple dive coasters are over 200’ but they are not called “hyper coaster” they are called “dive coasters” because that is their model. As for Kings Island, they can call it whatever they want. If they wanted to call Diamondback a giga, there’s nobody stopping then. Yes enthusiasts would be upset because we have an idea of what a giga should be (300’ height and/or drop) but to the average person, they don’t know the difference between a hyper, giga, or strata. Kings Island will almost definitely market it as a giga because a. By most enthusiasts definitions it is considered a giga, and b. the term has become fairly well know around here due to the all the hype surrounding KI getting a giga for years. KI will do what they think is best to get the most people in the park. Edit: Didn’t mean to put that emoji lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. No you don’t, but the likelihood of that being the case is very near zero, mostly because these are the plans that were filed with the city, not just a random find on an online forum. Messing with enthusiasts and guests is one thing. Doing so by sending fake plans to a government building... doesn’t sound like fun on KIs behalf if they did this imo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. ^Seems to be a theme here. I understand people not wanting to get their photos posted without credit, but if the watermark covers the whole photo, it really defeats the point of the photo because you can’t see any detail in the photo. Am I crazy for thinking this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. My hope for a lime green giga is dwindling ;-; Maybe we’ll get some other lime green coaster in the future... DB, who has wanted this color coaster for years Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
