  1. If we go by that map, Diamondback is like 8000 feet tall. I wouldn't take that map as gospel.
  2. With the listing of hydraulics, construction companies, B&M, and various part manufacturing companies, I highly doubt they're just painting Diamondback. if that was the case why would they not announce it like they have every other renovation? We had an extremely similar document for Mystic Timbers. People seem to be on this weird coaster skepticism bandwagon. It's fairly silly to say they'd need documents to perform annual maintenance. They didn't even have documents for GCI retracking racer's turn around (as far as I know).
  3. I think we're still gonna see a lot of additions for a couple years. After that I hope they continue themed areas and renovation. The Giga will just put King's Island on social media's radar. I've already had people tell me they're only gonna go next year for "Steel Beast" (that concept video that the GP thinks is real).
  4. That's a great concept! My only critique layout wise is that b&m usually uses sharper banks to avoid awkward G's with the exception of Fury's turn around. Also I know that probably had to do with Planet Coater's smoothing system. Great layout tho!
  5. I'm looking forward to the movie they'll make documenting my story.
  6. If we have a 300ft coaster themed to Deer, I will walk into the ocean.
  7. Okay but the fact that we're discussing a deer-themed coaster is like "r/Whoosh" material.
  8. There is nothing different about Hypers and Gigas. The main differences are the height and support structure of the lift hill. Layouts are entirely subjective, we haven't seen a MCBR on a Giga, but other than that, Giga layouts are entirely subjective. You could see an airtime giga eventually, and maybe a low to the ground Hyper. They're largely interchangeable. I've not seen B&M take risks in recent years, I've only seen improvement on pre-existing formulas. Don't get your hopes up for a launched 399ft Giga with inversions, It's probably just gonna be a further improvement on what they've already done. (I also don't mean to come off argumentative, I just don't want to see this thread speculating a Roller Coaster Tycoon level of realism)
  9. To be fair, KI lists a Giga as a hyper. They don't label it like enthusiasts. So my point in that is I don't think they'll change the Relatively efficient way they've ran Hypers and Gigas for the last 20 years. Sure I could be wrong, but when I went to Carowinds, Fury's line flew by because of the well oiled machine B&M had in place for capacity. Hey I could be wrong, you never know. (Edit: when I said KI lists it as a hyper, I meant B&M)
  10. Oh I think it's probably easy, they're just known for not changing anything in 20 years.
  11. I'll bet money they're going with a Chain Lift, and one Unloading and Loading station. I can't see them taking risks after things like SoB. The park doesn't need an unreliable experimental ride. Just my opinion. (Remember, it's b&m, they don't take risks often)
  12. With International Street and sections of Cony Mall being renovated, what areas do you think will/should be renovated or re-themed in the coming years?
  13. I swear if it has the work "Force" or "Striker" in it, I'm gonna switch to Six Flags. "Twisted Timber Striker Force 370 Coming To King's Island 2020"
