  1. Oh give me a BREAK!! Watched the POV, and what a huge disappointment. I was seriously hoping for KI to do a coaster right, and all this is going to be is a dull, out-out-back journey with no serious overbanked curves or huge drops. I give up on Kings Island. I'm leaving the site. Enjoy the boring looking coaster next year.
  2. No, I said I didn't see the point in signing up for a website that I will only visit one time. Besides, why did KI set up the YT link if it's not going to be used? yeah honestly it took less than a minute. Just do it and quit *****in Back off, dude. I asked a very simple question over there, and got no answer. I have very valid reasons for not wanting to sign up for a website that I'm only going to visit one time. Watch your mouth, too. You're a new member and I don't appreciate your tone with me!
  3. No, I said I didn't see the point in signing up for a website that I will only visit one time. Besides, why did KI set up the YT link if it's not going to be used? I don't think it was you that I saw saying that... Then I humbly apologize.

  5. Double post... You know what? It's not worth the hassle. I'll just catch the news when I can catch it.
  6. Isn't it safe to assume that if the park is directing traffic to the page on LiveStream and not mentioning YouTube that it won't be streaming the announcement on YouTube? No, Thane, I try not to assume anything. Besides, the KI PR channel on YT had the link set up days ago. I'm asking a very simple question, really. I just want to know if that YT link will still work. That's all. I don't see the point in signing up for a website if I will only visit that site one time. I would just as soon wait until the details are posted here, or when they hit the news late tonight or tomorrow
  7. ^ Truly, it's such an easy question. I just want to know if the live announcement will still be aired on the KI YouTube channel. If I have to sign up for Livestream, fine - so be it. But if NOT, I'd like to know sometime before tomorrow afternoon.
  8. ^ I did read the first post...I'm simply asking if we will still be able to watch in at the YouTube link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nG9Du4exO64 Otherwise, I'll have to sign up for LiveStream, which I'd rather not do if I don't have to.
  9. Does this mean we will not be able to watch it on YouTube?
  10. ^ Awesome! Thanks so much for the response. And Welcome to KIC.
  11. I may have overlooked the answer to this question, if it has already been asked, but... I won't be able to make it to the announcement Thursday evening, so will it be aired live anywhere? On the KI website? Here? Somewhere else?
  12. EVERYONE else? I don't recall saying which team I was on.
  13. IIRC, you were the eternal optimist, holding out hope 'til the end, that it was an Intamin.
  14. Well you see, as some have suggested, the hint about "Over the river and through the woods" is an allusion to Little Red Riding Hood. What few people know is that Little Red Riding Hood was actually Jack's girlfriend...you know, from the Beanstalk tale. Jack was just his nickname. His full name was John. Anyway, the two of them used to frolic around in the woods, and often would climb Jack's beanstalk to visit the giant who lived at the top. You see, the giant wasn't such a bad guy. In fact, he owned his own amusement park, complete with a fun little roller coaster that looked like a tra
  15. Again, just speculating. More like dreaming, knowing my luck and what I'd like to see at the park. I'm not really holding my breath about anything related to the project. For all I know, it could be Johnny's Little Red Choo-Choo Kiddie Coaster and only goes 25' high.
  16. Actually the plans include an exploded view of a section which was labeled area of work. This section has exact measurements. Based on this it was possible to get a scale for the layout from a top down perspective. From there you could estimate track length based on other rides. Unless this ride has steep sections of track which is unlikely based on the drawings we have a pretty good idea of a reasonable range for the length. Okay, obviously I've missed a section of the plans which shows any measurements. Do you have a link to where I can see it? If it was posted in this thread, I th
  17. This is KI not CP if CP wanted to do a coaster every year they could. Just remember where the CF head quarters is located.I just don't see it being 198 ft high if the track is only 3400 ft long. It doesn't match up with what has been done so far. Now if they are making it I say 4000 plus feet long well yeah. But not off the plans we have seen. I'm no expert but just going of the info Givin so far. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk Where has it been revealed HOW long the coaster will be? People are looking at an overhead layout of the coaster, but there is nothing...NOTHING...on th
  18. Regarding the number 198 ( actually, to me it looks like 198' ) - I originally saw it and pointed it out. But then again, that's just me...I tend to see things hidden within images. It may not be anything...or it may be something. I'm not trying to make a big issue out of it. If no one else sees it, that's cool. No big deal. But if some of us DO, don't criticize us and tell us we're hallucinating or delusional, etc. We're just speculating...and decoding, which is what this thread is about, right? For those who may be interested, and you can't see it, the white numbers showing 198 are i
  19. Ah HA....so maybe it WAS the number 198 I saw lurking in the top right corner of that teaser pic. Interesting.
  20. First, I'd like to encourage everyone to read the TOS that Dane (the site admin) set forth, which includes the following: "Respect - This is totally obvious so I'm not going into detail, but I will tell you this: if you get angry or frustrated, put out the flame thrower because a post that's disrespectful to another user, group, or individual is going to constitute a warning." Let's see...I'm not Terp, that's for sure. But I've been here for 8 years. You've only been here for 2 months. I may not be anybody, nor do I have several thousand posts (usually because I don't know
  21. Can we keep this thread focused on decoding Project 2017? Photos of coasters interacting with water are great to look at...I enjoy it...but perhaps better left to another thread. Same with discussion about other parks and coasters, including other KI coasters. Signed, Secondson - not trying to sound grumpy.
  22. It could be a 98...or maybe 158...or maybe nothing at all. haha. It could just be the way it appears on my computer screen. Since the 6 and 4 are vertical, maybe they're references to certain elements of the ride instead of the speed? You could potentially be onto something here. The model of a vintage truck hauling logs, which was sent to the local media, looks like a 1965 pickup, which is the year Wildcat was removed from Coney Island. Next year is KI's 45th anniversary, and maybe the model truck teaser is a way of saying they're bringing back an old wood coaster name - Wildcat
  23. I found this post really intriguing. Everything has been about cutting down trees and stump and sticks...... this one says nature is taking over. I think this one may actually be a clue to the name. Whats lurking in the forest could too but i think they are just referring to the coaster going up in the woods. Top right hand corner...am I the only one who sees the white number 198, or am I just seeing things? Plus, if you zoom in to the upper left along the top of the image, above the letter "N", it seems to show some more numbers. Looks like a green 6 with a 4 under it.
  24. You mean 219 right? This thread has only been through 242 pages. On mobile device we are upto 726 pages.Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk It might be better to reference the actual post number, instead of the page number upon which the post is found.
  25. With Gatekeeper at CP, I just don't see KI getting one...certainly not anytime soon. Look how long it took for us just to get an invert. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought since CF put one at CP, it pretty much meant KI wasn't going to get one due to how close it is to CP.
