  1. This is absolutely fantastic news in every way. Flight Deck's state of neglect over the past years had become downright depressing, and it's truly wonderful that Kings Island has decided to give the ride the love it very much deserves. That ride, whatever it is called, should always be considered one of the most treasured rides at Kings Island, and hopefully its rejuvenation as The Bat will help return it to that level of prestige and respect. I cannot wait to see how it turns out. As an aside, I have to say that the current management has done nothing but impress me over the past few years.
  2. I dunno, considering it hasn't changed much since I started going to Kings Island, I've grown rather fond of its current faded blue. If I had to imagine another color, its original green or perhaps a rustic brown like the actual Eiffel Tower might look good. I can't imagine it being anything bright like red or orange.
  3. It was darker, there was fog, and it was somehow even more awesome than during the daytime.
  4. Okay, now that I've gathered my thoughts, I can articulate some of the things going through my head now. My first reaction is WOW. Wow across the board. Every aspect of this is stellar. The ride, the theme, the name, and especially the marketing department. They've absolutely hit it out of the park these last couple of weeks, and this announcement was nothing short of spectacular. We should all be grateful for the frankly incredible job done by our PR team here, it is clear that they take their job seriously and enjoy doing it. The teaser video was remarkable, and very appropriate. As for
  5. I'll post my full opinion once I gather my thoughts.
  6. Please, for the love of God, shut up. You sound like Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I would put you on my ignore list but with quotes and responses that never works.
  7. I don't know how you guys can go to the park with The Beast, the world's longest wooden coaster, and say that the world's longest inverted coaster is a bum record. More length = more coaster. Who doesn't want that?
  8. I'll take a shot in the dark for the fun of it: B&M Invert 140 Feet Tall 60 Miles Per Hour 7 Inversions: Immelmann, Vertical Loop, Batwing, Vertical Loop and Inline Twist (In that order) 3,400 Feet Long World Record: Something Obscure
  9. That's not purple, that's clearly TARDIS blue right there.
  10. Please. Stop. Feeding. The Troll.
  11. Guys just leave them (or him, singular) alone. We've all spent the last few months trying to wrestle with them (him) about ride experience versus ride reliability, park investments, general public perception, etc etc. It should be clear by now (or by a while ago) that they (he) is a troll, and there is no arguing with them (him). They (he) either refuse to understand or to accept reason on the subject of roller coasters in the amusement park industry, and trying to argue with them (him) would be like trying to play chess with a pigeon. It will simply knock over the pieces and fly back to claim
  12. It's amazing how after seeing the blueprints, the layout becomes so clear. The immelmann, the loop, lift, etc. Also, I can't see it squeezing any more than 120-130 feet out of the lift hill in that small a space.
  13. I hate to agree with YoungStud, but...this almost certainly looks like an invert. The layout looks like a miniature Montu, which I think is a VERY good thing. The blueprints have made me even more excited for the announcement on Thursday, not less. I'm eager to see the theme, name, specifications of this ride.
  14. Mr. Spiegel also famously guessed that Diamondback's transfer track footings were indicative of a vertical loop, and that it would be a Dive coaster.
