    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    100% agree with this. BLSC and FoF are good, but I can definitely see where a Mack multi-launch would fit in very well with our lineup- especially one that uses the terrain to its advantage.
  2. I feel quite privileged and thankful that I was able to ride Volcano 3 times last season. The last time of which I got to experience a rollback and an evacuation from the launch tunnel, which was quite exciting. The ride stayed down the rest of my weekend in the park. RIP to such a unique ride.
  3. Welded, per the manufacturer. Metal anchor plates are spaced approximately every 5 feet and embedded into the concrete, then the guide rail is welded in place and ground smooth. http://gouldmanufacturing.com/trackspecs.html

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    On my phone so the quality isn’t great but here is the notice of commencement again. O’Rourke was not listed on there, and I cannot find anything new filed with the Warren county recorder or building department.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    One of my friends who is a ride operator at the park sent it to be, but it’s been sent around quite a bit so I couldn’t tell who originally took the picture.

    Sorry for the poor quality, received this on Snapchat. Looks like demolition is well underway. Too bad it is being scrapped and not sold.
  8. Some photos from this evening. Roof trusses, framing lumber, and sheathing have been delivered.

    Would a new skyride work?

    Important to note that Von Roll Seilbahnen AG was the division of Von Roll Holding AG that produced the original Type 101 Skyrides, such as the one at Cedar Point. In 1993 that division was sold to Austrian manufacturer Doppelmayr, the company mentioned above. It’s not unreasonable to think that they could not reproduce the original Type 101 design again.

  13. Here are some photos I just took. Looks like the formwork for the station is going up, and the grading for the paths and ponds is getting done.
