  1. Yes. I wouldn’t get my hopes up for this being super intense like a lot of people are saying. I think people will be disappointed that way when it turns out to be your standard B&M experience (which is very good, btw) I think this will be very similar to Leviathan. Like a slightly bigger and faster Diamondback basically
  2. That’s sort of evaluating it in a bubble though and ignoring patterns of existing parks. Every time I hear someone say “I would kill to have this in my park!!!” I compare it to lambasting fans of the losing Super Bowl team and being like “I would have killed to have my team even make it to the super bowl!” Yeah but... not really the point. Not sure that’s a totally accurate analogy but hopefully you get what I mean. Guess you could also argue that KI getting a giga at all would more aptly be compared to flat out winning the super bowl.
  3. Oh man lol I forgot I said this consider me flabbergasted I suppose
  4. I bet the first drop will have mag brakes the whole way down and limit the drop to 10mph so it's not too much better than MF Drive tires the rest of the way to complete the circuit
  5. I mean I guess technically it’s a possibility but I definitely would not entertain that idea There’s almost zero chance the train is floorless
  6. It was established earlier in the thread that the actual height is 280-something I think. The ravine gives it a 301’ drop.
  7. Exactly. You kind of indirectly nailed it here. A giga is your one shot to build something incredible, and loads of people feel like this has been full of missed opportunities so far. KI will likely never get anything higher than 300 feet ever again, or at least not soon enough that it’s even worth mentioning. If it was an RMC, we would probably all be happy right now regardless of what it was. Gigas have a reputation for being the record breakers, the precedent-setters, the bar-uppers. On paper it looks like this doesn’t do any of that, and that’s why people are bummed - especially when you consider the size of the plot of land and the topography KI had to work with. As a footnote, being bummed about the product that KI is getting ready to deliver to earn our dollars is in no way spoiled. This is not a birthday present - it is a product, and products are criticized all the time.
  8. In light of recent events
  9. Somebody else pointed out it says 1035 not 1065
  10. If the marketing trends regarding every single ride ever built are any indicator, people absolutely do care. The KI marketing team doubly so.
  11. I'd be okay with the drop length matching or barely beating Fury's if they're truly using that ravine to get a longer drop. If they're using it to lengthen the drop to just barely get a drop over 300 (like 305ft) and the true height is under 300ft, it will feel like a cheap Six Flags move to me. Dunno why you'd spend all that money just to have the actual height be barely under 300ft
  12. All depends on if the drop pullout can even fit there. I can’t tell from any of the photos posted
  13. For what it's worth, when I overlaid the layout image onto google earth to try to measure the layout, it was difficult to get things to match properly. If I had the buildings next to Dinosaurs Alive lined up properly, racer was a bit off and DA path wouldn't fit, and vice versa. One thing I could never get to line up properly was The Beast track. If I lined The Beast track up, literally nothing matched at all. Can't speak to the legitimacy of the layout but that did feel weird. It didn't seem like enough was missing that the layout is going to be wildly different, but it definitely looked and felt like something was missing.
  14. ^ That outer bank turn feels like it's going to launch me clear across Lake Erie every time.
