  1. I’m hearing a lot of hypocrisy on this ride, people saying they wish it used the terrain/topography and then saying it isn’t really a giga because it it cheats by using the topography... I can’t wait to ride, I think that wave turn is going to surprise people. There is a reason that element is what most of the promos are showing.

    I think hoping for the blueprints to be wrong in terms of layout is only going to lead to disappointment, however I myself have hope for something like a tunnel or some theming that we didn’t initially see. Tunnels are great and make rides better, period.

    Bayern Kurve is still the outlier, all the posters have years operated with a state abbreviation but the 9:900 HR sticks out to me. The 9th at 9:00 for an announcement?

    The electrical engineer isn’t manufacturing roller coaster pieces, they are working with their best knowledge and belief of the layout. They have no responsibility of the layout as it is created ‘by others’ and is simply shown for reference to aid in installation of their scope of work. Unless we have CSFs shop drawings or a drawing by B&M we can’t be positive of the layout.

    I just want this ride to hug the terrain as much as possible, and hopefully have a tunnel. Basically The Beast but at 90+ Mph and only a minute long. While length is important, I’d rather have this than an awkwardly tall MCBR with nothing but filler afterwards.

    The problem is the scale on the sheets title says 1”=20’, but the legend ruler shows 1”=10’. Both can’t be true, and my guess is that the title one is true because the little ruler just got copy and pasted from a different sheet, where title is specific to that page.

    This guy or gal used Bluebeam, and yes it has a measuring tool based off an initial calibration.

    This is unfortunately not true. Source, am architect.

    Keep in mind the terrain too, even if the lid hill is identical height to Fury, the drop could be 30’ or more longer due to the natural ravine. Let’s not panic for no reason. If it doesn’t go upside down, and it’s not over 300’ tall, it would just be a clone of Diamondback. Why would KI do that, let’s wait and see.

    PM me too! All I have seen is photos of paper, and just because the scale is depicted doesn’t mean it was printed ‘to scale’. Any time a document is forced to a printer’s paper size it immediately messes up the scale. These could be half size drawings or just printed to fit 11x17 paper.
  11. Based on this teaser I'm thinking the name will be Stampede. something like that that would help bring it into the western theme of frontier town too.
  12. Automatic fire suppression sprinklers for the station? It is wood construction after all
  13. Those plans show what looks like a good amount of theming along the queue which wouldl be great. Does it seam weird that the exit just dumps onto the train platform or am I looking at that wrong?
  14. I think they were asking why they aren't setting post holders into the concrete as opposed to drilling or lag bolting into hard concrete later on... Same strength either way it's just a matter of labor now or labor later, do you want to pay the concrete guys or the carpenters.
  15. Does Firehawk classify as a 'steal' coaster? Though it has been said already, thanks Magenta Lizard for your great pictures!
