  1. Even with all these pictures, it still doesn’t seem real to me. Almost makes me afraid to visit the park in April
  2. First time logging into the forums in about 5 years, just to post that this coaster will be the best at the park. Wish I wasn't so far from Mason, as I'd get the blueprints myself just to frame and hang in my office
  3. I believe it makes it easier for maintenance to walk the track
  4. This just popped up on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHvegbbhC3Y
  5. did anyone think of the fact they may do the first test after dark? I mean, the announcement was at night, and the whole premise of the ride goes along with it
  6. I believe flight deck also stores a train on the lift at night
  7. I'll never forget in 2011 I made a trip down to KI the first week of daily ops. I was with my gf, and right after walking through the turnstiles, I ran into Don. We actually struck up a conversation when he saw my coaster tattoo, saying he hasn't many of those. When my gf and I walked away, she asked me who that bald guy was I was talking to.

  8. KC was my first coaster ever...as scared as I was, I now regret only getting that one ride on it when I was 11
  9. I love the smell of the grease used on the wooden coasters...and love the sound of the anti rollbacks on The Beast and racer
  10. I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but I for one will be happy no matter what they are building. Whether it be an invert, giga, or something completely different, we should be happy no matter what Cedar Fair feels will help KI continue to succeed Sent From My HTC Evo 3d Using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  11. Took me a few minutes to figure it out as well. Sent from my HTCEVOV4G
  12. I've only been to one park on July 5th, and that was at Cedar Point back in 2008. we expected horrendous crowds, but most everything was less than 15 minutes, and mf and ttd were only about 30 minutes
  13. Sorry, I missed the part of my post that talked about the ride experience. I find the "leaked" information about yet another B&M coaster to be uninteresting and lacking in originality. Although this may disqualify me from being a "fanboy," it does not change my status as an "enthusiast." And, by the way, by saying that the ride "looks promising," you yourself are judging the ride before having ridden it. I said looks promising, not that it will be the best new coaster, or the worst coaster of all time. I'm holding off judgment of the ride until I sit down and ride it myself. I don't automatically assume all B&M coasters are boring, all Arrows are rough and jerky, or that all Intamin coasters must be unreliable. You don't know until you experience that particular ride for yourself
  14. Just because it's a B&M, doesn't mean it's going to be a bore...this ride looks very promising. Don't judge something until you ride it for yourself. Anyone who judges a ride before they ride it should not be allowed to consider themselves an enthusiast
  15. Reminds me of something my younger cousin had done a few years ago. We were on the last ride of the night. He and his mother were in car 2, and my friend and I were in car 6. He kept trying to look back at us during the ride, and ended up with a bleeding, busted lip
  16. In response to The Racer evac, I was one train ahead of you guys. I wanted to kick myself for not waiting one more train
  17. My guess would be a hint to opening day, which looks like April 28th
  18. I have Vortex tattooed in black on my arm, and will have more in the next month or two added to it

  20. does anyone know if there is a live feed from the annoucement?
  21. Sorry about that. I got the pic to go away, but the link is all messed up
