    I really like the orange track and turquoise supports (I'm a sucker for orange coasters!), however, I do think the old paint job was pretty unique.

    (...Well, not really... :P There is a coaster somewhere in the world that has (had?) that exact paint job, but I can't find it at the moment.)

    I think it’s nitro. The floorless Nitro

  2. So it was confirmed recently that Indiana Beach has acquired a family zyklon model that will be opening along with American Dreier Looping in 2022. The name is not known but people have seen the foundation for the coaster and have talked with Gene Staples. Gene said that is was supposed to open Labor Day of this year but got delayed. Here is the link to the rcdb page. It will most likely be built by SBF.

    ^Anyone in your family vaccinated (if you care to disclose)?

    Nope. We don’t really trust the vaccine, but not trying to get into anything political. I personally don’t trust it because my friend got the vaccine and he just got sick.

    Edit: When I said he just got sick, I meant he took the vaccine and it was way more than just regular side effects.

    @ThrillKingsFitzy I admire your attempt to try and help people…but, speaking from personal experience it seems like a non-believer has to get Covid themselves (or a family member) before they take it seriously. At work I have told my fellow employees just how bad some of my family members are who have had it…they usually counter with they know someone who has had it and it was no big deal. It’s frustrating…but like I said, I admire your attempt and I am sorry you had it go through it. :)

    Yeah I completely understand, if you saw my posts at the beginning of this thread, I was one of those people lol.

    But yeah if you haven’t had it wearing a mask is probably the smart thing to do. Right before I got covid, my school advised we wear masks just in case because in my county, the number of cases is growing like a wildfire. Literally the day after I got sick. Really wish I would have listened.

    But yeah, you can’t make everyone do it, but the most you can do is recommend.

    And @jsus I agree. It’s not like everyone is going to get a severe case, but I got a severe case and I’m only 16 and don’t even have any physical problems. I just happened to get a severe case. People should take precautions because it’s possible that you could end up with something severe. Not too likely, but very possible.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. So glad no one ended in the hospital.

    Yeah, I felt like it needed to be shared because some people on this website might not know the risks. We definitely didn’t know until this happened.

  6. So I hate to hit you guys with a serious comment but I feel like I have to post this. I have already said that I had covid and that it was pretty miserable, but that was the beginning of the sickness and it’s already gone through my whole family, so here goes.

    I got it first, I immediately started with a 104 degree fever. Highest fever I’ve had in my life, followed by a sore throat that even made it hard to swallow water. Because of this I didn’t eat much and lost a lot of weight. After I was done with the virus, I stayed home for another week not only because my family still had it, but because the virus basically drained me and I was exhausted. My sisters all got it and they had moderate symptoms and did pretty well. My parents however had the same symptoms as me and are still currently dealing with covid pneumonia.

    This story leads me to say that if you haven’t had covid yet, I would wear a mask for the sake of the unknown. Me and my parents happened to get severe cases and it still kind of affects us to this day, almost a month through it. If you know of anyone with the sickness, try and help them out as much as possible, just like my family and friends did who I am beyond thankful for. So again, if you haven’t had covid yet, I would advise wear the mask, and if anyone you know has it help them out as much as you can. I know I was very ignorant with it at first and after actually getting covid, I am pleading that you take this advice because it might end up severe like what my family had to deal with.

    Whew, all done. Thanks for reading this!

  7. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes *gaaaaasp* they should.

    Did I mention that they should?

    I really don’t like The Beast, and for one specific thing. The roughness. Gci or gravity group should come in and retrack the thing. It’s gotten unbearable and I think something needs to be done about.

    Hey, did I mention that they should retrack The Beast?

    So are typing this from school LOL.

    And you would be like one of the many students that we see on the news that tell their school board to quit listening to the parents bicker about masks as they aren't the ones sitting in school.

    From what I have seen, a large number of students would rather wear masks than have to go through all the quarantine, remote learning nonsense.  Kids learned to deal with the masks last year and a large number of students say it isn't that big of a deal, especially if it keeps the school open.

    If the endgame is to not have to close schools, then masks should be mandatory in school. 

    Even last year with mandatory masks, schools around the country were still forced to close and go remote.  But now with the vaccine, hopefully the amount of closures with mandatory masks wouldn't be as great. 

    Instead, unvaccinated kids are now in school without masks and the vaccinated are not wearing masks either and studies are showing the viral load in the vaccinated is just as high as the unvaccinated, so the kids are put into a worse petri dish than last year and we will see more closures this year than last year....

    Well I’m not at school, I have covid. And yes, I will say students can be smarter than their parents when I comes to masks. I really don’t mind wearing them, and I realize people have breathing problems, but since when does putting a mask on that doesn’t suffocate you count as a health violation?

    Indy schools are back to masks for all.

    My schools in Ripley County don’t have mask requirements yet, but I strongly hope that they enforce it. Last night I woke up with a 104 degree fever and I am still feeling miserable. Might I add that this is a mild case, for I only have a cough and a major fever. I may have been a little optimistic at first, but after getting covid, I suggest that everyone tries their best not to get it.

    Although I must say that the vaccine in my opinion isn’t very trustable. My good friend @ThrillKingsOryan got the vaccine and he was feeling miserable. I would suggest that you just wear your masks. Please nobody attack me for this, as this is my opinion and I also got the virus.

    I think if it's to be replaced it's way down on the to-do list.

    I'd venture these come first:

    1. Vortex plot - KI favorite lost/ seems empty

    2. Tomb Raider Building- underutilized and ugly

    3. Boo Blasters revamp- tired ride

    4. Timberwolf re-purposing with Invertigo removal?- both have been upstaged and are now irrelevant

    5. Bat Removal?- not as old as 'Draggin Iron' but more forces on structure

    6. Flight of Fear lifespan?- Approaching 30 years old

    Then maybe Backlot. I think very few would say that ride was a good use of the site it's on but they might as well some more years out of it.





    I honestly think it will get removed before The Bat and Flight of Fear. The Bat is too much of a gem for KI to remove and it has some sort of significance. Flight of Fear would leave backlot as the only launch in the park, which would leave an extreme launch gap. I just don’t see backlot staying around this long.

    Almost every record breaker CP built was broken a few years later.  If your analogy held true, then they would have got rid of a lot of rides.  Dragster, Valravyn, Millie, Magnum, Steel Vengeance are just a few examples of coasters that held world records and were broken within a few years...

    In fact, I do not think they are the current world record holders on any ride at the moment.  I think KI has more current world record holders than CP.

    Good point lol. Glad you explained it better. Either way, wicked twister was an unpopular ride. I know it had it’s fans here and there (including me) but it’s out of date, at least for CP standards. I truly hope it goes to a park like MIA. It would fit in with the trend of impulses going to smaller Cedar Fair parks like dorney park and valleyfair.

    Also, in case you missed, I did say it could be gone because of no longer being a record holder *and* not being popular. That doesn’t add much difference to my idiotic reasoning but I feel like people missed that.

    About Cedar Point removing Wicked Twister because a park in China has a version that's taller and faster?  Yes, that makes absolutely no sense.  When has any park ever removed a ride entirely simply because another park built one that was longer, taller, faster, or some other record?

    Well I mean the only good reason I could think of besides that is the fact that the capacity is low. No need to be so aggressive about it, it was just an idea

    ^Not even close.

    Remember Wicked Twister still holds the speed and height records for inverted coasters in the world.   Combine that with Banshee holding the length and in a multi-way tie for the inverted inversion record and we'd have all the good inverted coaster records. B)  

    Actually wicked twister’s record just got broken by a Chinese park. They got a next gen impulse and it’s taller and faster.


    This may be why they decided to remove it. It didn’t fit that well and now it’s not a record holder

  14. Introducing Defiance, a new Gerstlauer eurofighter going to Glenwood Caverns! This coaster will be, um…situated on a mountain!!!!!!

    It has three inversions, them being an inverting top hat, a banana roll, and a zero g roll into the breaks. It will have a 102.3 degree drop and the rest of the ride is only the two inversions, making it super short. And yes, this is the record breaking Gerstlauer that was speculated to go to Cedar Point

    This vid gives a better description. Thoughts?

  15. Thats a hard one lol. Wicked twister has the launch and the hang time but Invertigo has the rip your face off intensity. I think I’d go with wicked twister. I’m one of the fewer people who actually enjoys Invertigo I guess lol.
