  1. Facebook has the screenshot posted and is running with it
  2. Im sure the person behind this is savvy enough to use proxies and other redirects, but could the admins get a general location on this account? The troll one of course.
  3. Hard to trust anything in this high stakes game of espionage and betrayal... Enjoy this for a laugh
  4. I would agree with this. When I first saw that hashtag, I though the coasters that are “big”(and by my definition) would be Diamondback, Beast and Banshee. Then, add in the “one of our own” and I initially though beast as it was the only one done in house... I know I can be too literal for my own good sometimes. Anyhow, as the speculation carried on and I knew it couldn’t be one of them with Vortex and Firehawk being listed as front runners I figured that that hashtag had to be coded. I guess we will see
  5. That would be pretty wild to have it go underground for a stretch in a fairly tight tunnel. They could have the vegetation around the opening serve as a added visual blocker and then have total darkness in the tunnel(or one of those patterns like in the funhouse tunnels that would really mess with your senses). Time it with a beast car overhead roaring on the track...
  6. Best I could do with the original till someone else has a better one.
  7. It looked like they installed a new water culvert in that area.
  8. We will egarly await as I think we may be out of “legal” places to take photos from
  9. I’m already out in the parking lot, just stopping in for some pictures before work calls. One item of note, as I was almost to the car a 1.5 or 2 ton dump truck went by with a bunch of the trees and stumps from what I would suspect is the clearing.
  10. A lot of grading and clean up of the site as you can see
  11. I stopped in between work calls , heading up the tower and leaving. I’ll report back in a few
  12. I would agree, my only point in mentioning it is that most other speculation I’ve heard so far barely has it taller, longer or faster than fury(and that we should consider ourselves lucky if we get that). Maybe it’s to keep being dissapointed at a minimum after it’s all said and done if that is true... anyhow I wonder how close it will get to 7359 if it clears 7000+.
  13. Easter egg or troll bait, I would guess it is just to get people talking and have us do the social media footwork for them. Quite brilliant. I was thinking something similar or with the change with temperature paint could work, but it might not be optimal in the summer. Imagine an LED package of lights that “chase “ or look like they are afterburn/tracers for at night if they use an X-base theme. He is suggesting 7000+ feet of track and over 350 lift hill... here is to hoping this has some merit or is on the conservative side of guesstimates.
  14. I had a guy in line for Diamondback on passholder night tell me with the upmost "authority" that the giga will be 345 feet and anyone that doesnt know that... well I guess your not paying attention. As for me, last year was the first year I really paid any attention to rumors and speculation of what the park would be getting. I will admit to being sucked in totally by the trolling of the 5 is alive posters and other coincidental items that popped up only to be disappointed with the antique cars. This year Im just going to quietly watch from afar and expect more antique cars.
  15. Do they have an itinerary posted somewhere for the event like Kings Island has for theirs? I see it is yet to be announced and is there any speculation on projected ERT?
  16. The entire queue was filled this last Saturday and spilling out past the Banshee sign.
  17. Thanks for the welcome and understood on the other rides. Shake, rattle and roll, monster and occasionally surf dog with Boo Blasters are our "take it easy" rides.
  18. Fair enough. Ill be excited to see the 2+hr plus waits for them so they can free up the waits for other rides. In all seriousness, I moved to the area 2 years ago(almost to the day) and before that I was a casual park vistior in other places like Dollywood, Lagoon, Great Escape, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. We would go maybe 5 times a year max and I had no idea of the industry speculation, history of the parks and the excitement associated with the parks. The past two years it all changed, my son got hooked on coasters and became an encyclopedia of sorts on Kings Island and Cedar Fair parks. This year we got platinum passes and made a few trips to Cedar Point and due to my best efforts of planning, the Carowinds, Michigan Adventure and Kings Dominion trips fell through. So, Im still learning on how all this goes... regardless I had a blast with my son speculating on the coaster. We went up top of the tower and took pictures, scouted what one could via X base and Action Zone, printed out google maps drawing out tracks on how we suspected it might go and for those times it was definitely worth it.
  19. I wasnt around for them at Kings Island(I have only been in Cincinnati for 2 years, of which we have been pass holders) but I was wanting more. The coaster of course, but I would be content with one of the more intense flats like a tilt a whirl or the like.
  20. You would be 100% correct. My 10 year son has been on fire about these and I definitely got swept up with a childlike excitement. I was looking forward to his excitement along with many years of making memories on pending coaster. Such is life, and like the Brooklyn Dodger's of the 50's... Wait till next year!
  21. Am I in the extreme minority that is sick to my stomach disappointed with the now strong possibility of antique car return? Who announces an attraction like that on national roller coaster day? Kings Island does I guess... bummed
