  1. Air traffic controller here. And yes, we can tell most of the time. That doesn't mean we police a guy that's flying VFR. The pilot of the aircraft does not have to talk to us so long as he/she isn't in Class Bravo/Charlie/Delta airspace. I honestly don't care what Joe Pilot does flying his Skyhawk (Cessna not Cedar Point's screamin' swing).
  2. South Dakota, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Kansas, Oklahoma... Interesting.
  3. So AZ--Arizona NV--Nevada Next we get NM?
  4. Exactly my point. *Runs to take down poster again*
  5. There's no way that FoF has only 6,761,893 "tests administered" since 1996. Doesn't that seem low for ridership? (Especially considering FH's 6+ million since 2007)
  6. Already stated by someone else above. 11, # of years FH was at KI. 20, # of years Invertigo has been at KI.
  7. They probably put them out of order. Starting with sequence VIII and then IX was a bit odd to me.
  8. Agreed, I just wish CF didn't have such a love affair with B&M. But they're so reliable! Too bad Intamin screwed up Shoot the Rapids so badly.
  9. Yeah, that's what I mean. I personally haven't been to KI since 2015 (now in NE OH, but grew up in Dayton), but I know even Mystic Timbers has that "fun" factor. I say that based on the many other GCIs I have been on. You just want to re-ride over and over again. I get that same feeling on MF, SV, TTD, to name a few. However, like you said, Valravn and GK are cool rides. I like them, but I am satisfied with my trip to CP if I get to ride them once. If I only get 1 ride on SV, I am disappointed and don't feel fulfilled. Maybe I am just greedy though. I guarantee, this will be one of those rides that you keep saying "ONE MORE RIDE!" And as a side note, I just watched POVs from Leviathan and Fury. They each have a tunnel of some sort so I think there's a good chance this new Giga will as well.
  10. BOOOO! I would have been so disappointed with either of these. I don't know many people who go to Cedar Point because they HAVE to ride GateKeeper and/or Valravn. They go for SV, TTD, and MF (not to mention the beautiful peninsula itself). Sure, they are good additions to add variety but I do not think you will see either of those coasters in peoples' top ten lists. Yet, you see Fury, Leviathon, MF, and I305 in MANY top ten lists. Just sayin...
  11. If anyone was quick to call this the worst giga, let me just remind y'all of 2006/2007. Maverick. People were ANGRY. "What the heck is that ride?!?" It seemed as though everyone was hoping for some kind of huge, record-smashing coaster. Mind you, this was the first coaster after TTD. Expectations were so high and then the announcement came. I will admit it. I was crushed. "Really?" "That's it?" Fast forward a few months. MIND BLOWN. One of the absolute best coasters on the planet. That is all.
  12. Cedar Point has something that KI will never have. And that's Lake Erie. I think it's tough to say KI is better than CP. They are just different. They each thrive in their own way. One is regional, one is a destination. Apples to oranges.
  13. They will use one of the names for the coaster and the other for the new bathrooms. It's going to be heavily themed bathrooms. They waited so long, they might as well go all out.
  14. It would be like a faster Tron Lightcycle Power Run coaster at Shanghai Disneyland. I think you're on to something....
  15. I guess, in a roundabout sort of way, that was one of the points I was trying to make.
  16. For real though. Who does that? I happen to be a college-educated man. I just made a spelling error from my phone nonetheless. Back on topic. I believe this new ride will be of the more crowd-pleasing variety. Then again, CF surprised me with Leviathan. So I will give them the benefit of the doubt. I just hope they add some unique elements that might surprise me. Little pops of air that are unexpected, really make a ride great in my opinion. If the ride ends up being a taller version of DB, I would say that it would be a massive disappointing to the enthusiast community.
  17. Thank you for pointing out my grammatical error. I'm not sure it needed to be mocked though. Anyway, I agree that it was a rather sweeping generalization. I did it to prove a point. Maybe I am a different kind of enthusiast. I am not knocking or discounting rides like MF or DB. I'm just saying that they are not cutting-edge. They are great, appeal-to-the-masses, types of coasters. They are great in a financial sense for parks due to high capacity, high reliability, and just plain "fun" rides. However, like stated in my previous post, they are not in that next-level category, in my opinion.
  18. Which is ridiculous. I305 is cutting-edge and intense. Floater air and wide, drawn-out, banking turns are crowd pleasers and that's it. Sure, they are fun, but for an enthusiast, mediocre at best. MF is consistently in the top 10 steel coasters, but come on, we all know (as coaster enthusiast) that there are much better rides out there. It appeals to the masses. And again, I'm not saying MF is bad, I really enjoy the ride. It just doesn't have that "next level" intensity to it. RMC rides, I305, and other rides along those lines are the ones that get you coming back for more and more.
  19. Unfortunately, this giga will be nothing like I305. That ride is INCREDIBLE. It's out of this world (Orion/Polaris? Lol). I would be so stoked if it was an I305-type giga, even if it was 4000 ft long. I305 is Maverick meets Millennium Force. It doesn't get much better than that. Unfortunately, that type of giga doesn't seem to be in B&Ms portfolio.
  20. That's why SV is the best ride in the world. It never let's up AND it's an incredibly long ride.
  21. Could you imagine Beast as an RMC? MY GOD, that would be insane... I know the traditionalists and the nostalgic folks would be up in arms, but you can't ignore how awesome it could be. It would be like Outlaw Run on steroids.
  22. I didnt have any expectations for Leviathan when I rode it. I thought it would be a fun ride but nothing worthy of my top 10. IT BLEW ME AWAY. One of the most surprisingly fun rides I have ever been on. Anything in the ballpark of Leviathan would be a very welcome edition.
  23. Low quality? I wouldn't say that at all. Intamin has always pushed the limits. I wouldn't call that low quality. Sure, they have reliability issues, but I305 is one of the best coasters I have ever been on. I never got a chance to ride or before the modification but now it's absolutely phenomenal. As far as Raging Bull is concerned, I personally have never been on it but I have heard that it is very boring. Again, can't speak from experience on that one.
  24. Does anyone else find it interesting that they did the announcement on the side of the Crypt/TR:TR building? I'm starting to feel like that building is going to have a different purpose next year.
  25. I'm sure this has already been discussed but wouldn't it be cool if they somehow utilized the TR:TR/Crypt building for the new ride?
