  1. You can see that same Boom on Google Earth... along with SOB. So I think it’s safe to say that the Boom isn’t special by any means.
  2. If they could find away to make it more cost efficient (by maybe using as little supports as they could) it would be an awesome marketing campaign to have the worlds longest wood coaster and steel coaster in one park.
  3. As a Cedar Point person (my home park) I can say we are kind of jealous of Mystic Timbers. We only have one wooden roller coaster which is an old out and back. We desperately need a modern GCI. I rode Mystic Timbers and can say that it is one of the best rides at Kings Island. The theming is great on Mystic Timbers and it’s just a fantastic ride overall. I rank Mystic Timbers far above GateKeeper, Rougarou, and Valravn. You guys didn’t get the short end of the stick at all. Especially since you might have a giga brewing up pretty soon.
  4. Pony Express is a very fun ride. Not the fastest, nor tallest, nor longest, but very enjoyable. As for Maverick, I’ve always known it to be a Terra Coaster that has an LMS launch. Cowboy coaster is just a name enthusiasts use instead of Terra Coaster because Maverick is known to be the best.
  5. I saw the USS today. It was absolutely amazing! We were disappointed because we couldn't see the Amazing Dobermans, they don't show on Thursday's we discovered, but it looked neat. A lot of people here don't seem to care for it though. Any reason?
  6. Sorry if this was mentioned before, but did Kings Island update their park map? I can't find a 2017 version with Mystic Timbers anywhere. Not even the app.
  7. I forgot to ask, are the headlights on the train real or fake?
  8. I've heard mixed reviews about the shed. What did everyone here think?
  9. Is it me, or does the video seem to skip a little at the 2:00-2:01 mark?
  10. Am I safe to check this thread every day without any spoilers?
  11. I also don't think anyone will turn away from The Beast. It has too big of a reputation, and I feel that for some visitors, The Beast will always be their favorite no matter what comes.
  12. Well obviously the plans for #KIProject2018 are in the shed! Decoding Episode III lets go!
  13. So I've been on a camping trip for about a week and couldn't keep up with this thread. Can anyone fill me in on any recent news or anything big that may have happened?
  14. Woodstock Express was given to it by Cedar Fair. Paramount didn't have rights to the Peanuts theme.
  15. Okay, that's what I thought. I've made that error on more than one occasion myself.
  16. I definetly am putting my lunch money on a GCI and Mean Streak getting an RMC for either 2017 or 2018. And I'm dedicated to my lunch.
  17. Sorry for the double post. For some reason my "quote" and "edit" buttons are invisible, so I just kinda have to guess where they are, and clicked the wrong button. And I don't know how to delete posts to fix it.
  18. Fry-guy!? Oh come on, give me a break! Let me tell you all a story about a man known as the Lemon-Chill guy at Cedar Point. Originally posted in 2000 by DBCahill: I can't find the original post, but someone had mentioned that there would be a new steel coaster in 2002, perhaps a floorless. I shouldn't say here, but the new coaster won't be a B&M. If you all promise to keep this a secret... CP is currently negotiating with S&S to bring an air thruster launch coaster. The queue will take up most of the area where Oceana currently sits. The launch will be from the site of Ocean Motion. The trains will be hybrid water/land vessels (like Journey to Atlantis) seating 24 people each. The ride (tentatively to be called Abyssmal -- misspelling intentional) will shoot riders out toward the lake and up a 245 vertical wall. Once at the top, riders will be plunged 260 feet INTO the lake. OK, so not actually into the lake, but into a pipe (like Oblivion) that will go into the lake. This pipe will be clear so that you can see underwater. When the train comes up out of the lake, you'll go into a double helix and head back toward the beach. On the beach, a hard left behind Giant Wheel, and back up to the top of what is now Disaster Transport. That building will be the new surroundings for the dark/water portion of the ride. Inside the DT building, you'll experience three flume drops (like Splash Mountain), the third one exiting the building and back onto the beach. Instead of the big splash at the bottom, you'll be taken back up 50 feet, then a quick loop (like Corkscrew) before the magnetic braking system (like MF) cruises you in for a gentle stop. I know this is absolutely true. I can't say exactly where the information came from, but let's suffice it to say that I know a guy who went to CP two weeks ago and spent a LOT of time hanging around the Lemon Chill cart on the Gemini Midway. Nuff said!!

  20. I feel like the park's post "What KIC is looking for can only be found by those who know where it's at" actually means that the plans were in the city hall. And someone found them. I honestly think this is a giant tease, especially after the dog post. I'm hanging on to #TeamGiga.
