    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I feel like V-Shaped would be a tad faster, but the difference of time probably wouldn't be noticeable. IDK, I feel like B&M will go 4 across since that's what they been doing lately.
  2. Man, I'm gonna miss it and I really didn't even like Firehawk like that. I just hate seeing coasters go. The sad part is that the last time I was able to ride it was last year and I don't have plans of going to KI for the rest of the year. RIP Firehawk, The ride did serve its purpose and I guess overall was "fun", not the best ride, but it will be missed. F

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    Its funny, I like Firehawk but since 2015 I've only ridden it once. I would have ridden it more, but like others have stated, the line is just way too long even on a normal day. I wish I would have been able to ride it this year. If it is Firehawk, Then the that would mean that the last time I would have ridden it will be like July of 2017. Sucks that the announcement really came out of nowhere.
  4. I thought it was a good idea too. I mean just let RMC do their thing, they could possibly turn it into a top 3 ride in the park. But of course, As we both know, the likeliness of any of that happing is very low.
  5. That's funny, I remember my first post on KIC was on RMC'ing AE
  6. Whether its Vortex or Firehawk or Whatever, I hate to see rides go. But if this paves the way for a new better ride (Giga) then I'm all for it. It's exciting but at the same time gives feelings of anxiousness. At the end of the day, I'm going to miss whatever ride gets cut.

    Change one part of a Coaster

    Sometimes I wish KI would remove they annoying trims on The Beast. Of Course, they are there for safety and I would assume they would do it to put less "wear and tear" on the ride, but some of them are excisive and just annoying, feels like when you start gaining speed it just gets derailed and sometimes it just lowers the excitement, especially when your riding in the front row. One of the things I love with RMC is that they really don't put trim breaks on their coasters, you can even see on SV mid-course break run that they try to make it where it won't kill the speed of the coasters. I'm not saying The Beast should get RMC'd but some of the trims on The Beast are just ridiculous.

    I mean for names we still have to remember that CF has the name Centurion still lying around. Even though it really wouldn't fit the theme of X-Base, They might still just use it. Again I like the name Centurion but I don't think KI is willing to connect the theme of Modern Flight in X-Base to a Roman army commander.

    Wow! That Photo is Sweet though. Looks so real and catches the attention real quick. I would not be surprised if this thing was responsible for an accident or two...

    Most of the times those rides got taken down because the park had no option, Either the ride was in very poor condition or other reasons that forced them to shut it down. The Racer is still in good condition and can be with good upkeep for the Next 20 years+ KI isn't just going to let The Racer sit and ruin, I again am positive they will keep it in good condition as long as they possibly can.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    The Racer has a TON of history and some even credit it for paving the way for a new era of coasters. It's a very important ride to KI and the rest of the Amusement/Rollercoaster Industry (Coaster Enthusistate too and locals). Also, it's an ACE landmark, So I'm not exactly sure if the new RMC'd structure would be allow to keep the ACE Landmark award... (If anybody knows the answer on this please fill me in) KI could RMC The Racer one day in the future and if they did I personally wouldn't be mad, but for now, I don't see it happening and I think they are going to try to keep it running at good condition as long as possible.

    @Maverick44It honestly could work out, Wonder what track design they would use. I personally like both, but I just really like B&M more, I like the design of their track and the gloss of their new coasters, but still, both of them are alright.

    HAHA, Lets Go Commando at Soak City. As long as you stay in the water, you're fine... until people start focusing on your swimsuit (in the situation where you have no swimsuit on...)

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Here was my take on a shirt design. Obviously, The Kings IslandĀ® Logo belongs to Kings Island. Of course, the Giga hasn't even been confirmed so its all speculation with the date and term "Go Commando". I just quickly made the shirt using "Custom Ink".

    Well, get one eventually in the next 4 years. At the moment its the best coaster for us to get, Also CF saw how much of good response there was for Fury 325 from the GP and from Coaster Enthusiast too. Also, all of the major CF parks have a Giga and we don't. CF knows we need and deserve one.
