    The Giga Speculation Thread

    This x1,000,000. Whenever I see speculation of resurrecting either SOB or Flight Commander I roll my eyes. Those two rides will forever be linked with actual* deaths or injuries. There is absolutely no benefit to the park in labeling something new with those monikers. I also think it's hilarious how much "hmmm, 24 hours isn't a lot of time to build hype for a massive roller coaster announcement, PR is really dropping the ball on what's obviously an RMC SOB Giga announcement" became "OMG, I can't believe the announcement I said wasn't hyped enough turned out to not be the thing I said wasn't hyped enough." I mean, c'mon, 24 hours lead time was exactly the sort of advance notice you'd expect for something like the 'tiques return. That said, I also won't be surprised to see site work begin on something big for 2020 concurrently with building the new 'tiques along with some general sprucing up of that end of Coney. To me, that would fit totally in with CF's style of general area improvements that tend to happen with the opening of a new ride. *The Bat is a different case. It was an ambitious but failed experiment whose DNA as a suspended Arrow really does live in the current Top Gun/Flight Deck/Bat. While there are some urban legends out there about "my cousin's boyfriend saw..." related to the original Bat (because those exist for every amusement park ride), that's not in the same ballpark as what actually happened on SOB and Flight Commander.
  2. This was one of my thoughts also. I'd expect they'll do some sort of themed drive through based on a popular Christmas story/song (kinda like the 12 days on the train). Overall, I'm really happy to see the 'tiques come back, it helps fill a pretty big gap in the parks lineup that will hopefully get more families spending those $$$ and will (hopefully) add some scenery to a fairly dead end of the park. I'm not ruling out a racer refurb because as someone mentioned earlier, that's not the sort of thing I've ever seen a park announce to the GP.

    What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    I fully understand the "keeping haunt buildings around all season" logic but I think a very minor improvement could be to make them less generic and empty-looking in the offseason. The easiest example I can think of would be a paintjob on Slaughterhouse that's similar to MT's lumber company shed but named something like "Losantiville meat and poultry" or something like that. It'd be a little bit f "theming" for The Beast's queue but also still hold up as Slaughterhouse for haunt. Someone with more creativity may be needed to suggest something for SOB/Wolfpack...
