  1. If I could pick anything to fill that spot, this is what I would pick. I dont see it happening, but we can all dream, right?
  2. Sadly, I think this land is going to sit empty for quite some time. When we do eventually get a new coaster in it, 5-6 years down the road, it will be good, but it is not going to be a record breaker of any time. If Orion has shown us anything, it is that Cedar Fair is willing to invest in Kings Island, but that they dont see the return on investment in building record setters here. Why spend 20% more to build a record breaker when it will not result in 20% greater returns? I am going to guess a 190ish foot dive coaster with 3 inversions is most likely. I hope I am wrong on this, but Is simply dont see KI getting any major investments for several years. Orion is a huge investment, and Cedar Fair has already stated that they are going to slow down the investment rate on new coasters.
  3. As much as I agree that would look great, I hope when it is time for Viking Fury to leave, it gets replaced with another swinging ship ride. KI is already short on flats, and a non looping swinging ship is a ride that can appeal to a wide range of people.

    Diamondback is 5200ish feet (forget the actual number off the top of my head), and I think people who went over the plans think that project X will be 5400ish feet. Project X will be faster, so the ride time will be shorter, but the track will still be longer than Diamondback, assuming that the plans are correct (they likely are)
  5. Last year, buying a platinum in the fall would give you 1 free visit to a non KI CF park. We did platinum passes for 2019, and used our free visit at CP in the fall of 2018.
  6. I think a Scream and Swing would be a great addition to KI.

    it looks like it is going to be used as an overflow queue for FOF

    its also possible that the gray is still primer gray, and they are simply waiting on the blue paint to cure before masking it off and painting the support.

    They are pricey, but the best coaster shorts I have found are prAna stretch zion shorts (you can get them on Amazon). Tough but comfortable, quick drying and breathable, with just the right amount of stretch and in built in belt that actually works, and a a nice zippered pocket to hold the stuff you dont want to loose.

    I think many of us are concerned that it will not even make it to the 300 foot mark, based on the plans from the city.

    is anyone attending coasterstock today? If so, report back if any hints or teasers pop up at this event!
  12. would the dual loading layout of the Firehawk station transition well into a wing coaster station, or would the central exit make that transition incompatible?
  13. I agree that a Wendy's would be a great addition. I would also love to see Hanks get replaced with a Chipotle. As far as a completely different food types, I like it when they bring in food trucks during haunt, and wish they would have a rotating schedule of food trucks year round, so that there is always something new to eat. If they could integrate the food trucks in with the meal plan somehow, that would be even better.
  14. Yea, I suppose Red force is technically a Giga, although I honestly put it into the same category as Top Thrill dragster and Kingda Ka. I am not sure what exactly to call that class of ride, but since their ride experience is so much different than what is typically considered "Giga", It almost does not seem right to compare them.
