  1. Boy, the end turnaround sure gets close to The Beast track!   Wonder if that part of The Beast won't seem as "back in the woods" as it does now? 

    Also, I always thought this area shown in the satellite photo attached was where they shot the fireworks from...  I guess that will have to move??   Or will they shut this big new ride down before/during the fireworks like they do with The Beast at night?!

    That area is shown in the blueprints but I can't read what they say on the scans on the imgur site...

  2. 4 minutes ago, Diamondback Splash said:

    Are there any recent examples (since the classifications of "hyper" and"giga" became common) of new coaster construction stopping just a few feet short of 300?

    This is what I don't get... why wouldn't they add the extra 5 or 3 or whatever feet to reach 300? Especially since we already have a 200+ foot hyper in Diamondback? 

    Agreed.  Doesn't make any sense why they would "cut it short" by just a few feet...    Gotta be a (bigger) drop into a valley or something as others have said to make it "taller" on the drop height.

  3. Ok. This is a little out there, but someone may know...

    I currently have a GOLD pass from KI.

    If for 2017 I buy a Platinum Pass from CP, do I get a fastlane pass for CP to use this fall?

    Can I ALSO get in to Carrowinds this fall once?

    Related... I went to CP this year (bought a ticket) and my KI all season drink bottle worked there just fine! Anyone know if dining plans work at all parks like that too??? I.e. Would a CP all season dining plan work at KI?


  4. Rode TARON @ Phantasialand in Germany several times last week! It is an AMAZING ride! SO insanely better than Maverick @ Cedar Point! Super fun, with the desire to ride again and again. I have tons of photos and videos but probably nothing different than what you can find online...

    That entire park is just absolutely amazing. Just as good or even better theming / appearance as any Disney park!

    So much time and money spent on making things look amazing. It's a shame KI didn't continue that after Paramount sold.

  5. I would love to see KI spend one year adn get a decent addition of flats. One or two big ones then 2 or 3 small family ones.

    For major ones get something like a Screamin' Swing, Sledgehammer, Sky Roller ( all which would make good X-Base additions), Enterprise, Top Scan, or Top Spin.

    For family ones like to see a Tilt-A-Whirl, teacup style, twist and splash style, Music Express or Alpine Bobs type, Magic Carpet, or Wipe Out.

    Think getting a handful of these would really round out or flat line up and improve the park to an even higher level.

    Couldn't agree more!!

    I've been saying that ever since my son got too big/old for Snoopy land.

    You either ride a giant coaster @ KI or you do nothing...
