Hi, I'm a long time lurker who has always enjoyed this site and forums for several years. I haven't had much of a reason to make a comment or posting until now. Take this rumor for what it is (a "rumor") but my wife works for a local medical office and a patient identified himself as an employee of the roller coaster fabrication plant in Batavia. Being a fellow rollercoaster enthusiast ,albeit somewhat naive, she asked if they had built anything for KI. Well, he said no that they had a 300 mile non compete clause with Cedar Point and that they could not build anything for KI until of course Cedar Fair purchased KI. He told my wife that there is now a "contract" there to build a B&M coasterfor KI. He did not say when it would be built or what type of coaster. Take this for what it is but I think it may be true or he could be a big talker and have no clue what is going on at the plant.
I do think this is a more fun topic than what soda pop might they serve this year which is why I'm posting. I do swear though that the conversation did take place between my wife and the dude that works at the local roller coaster track fabrication plant. If anyone would like to see where the plant is located it is behind the Batavia Highschool.
