    My bad...I'd been thinking about it and that rescinded drone footage gave such a great view that I couldn't help it.

    Fair...but my hack map skills show that that wooded plot is almost twice the area taken up by Steel Vengeance...so maybe they could spread it out, leave a decent amount of trees, and use the terrain. A man can dream.

    ^It could be part of the whole re-vamp of AZ into the 'Black Forest' and the terrain and woods would make it Beast-like

    I know they are (will be) very different coasters, but the feeling on Steel Vengeance on the outward bank like you are being sucked out of the car laterally is one of the coolest things ever. Really hoping this is something similar.

    Yes, but MF's is a high G turn whereas PX's looks to be an airtime hill with the train at a 90 degree angle. I may be totally wrong but that's what it looks like.
  6. About 10 years ago, it was incredibly tame. Not sure if they scaled back the trim brakes or what, but it is great now IMO and more the way I remember as a kid. It's somewhat rough (I can't marathon it), but still a total classic.
  7. Hopefully if there is no new big addition for 2022 (50th b-day) we'll get a few flats and severe theming updates....Developing Xbase and expanding Octoberfest into AZ would be my picks.
  8. The coaster will be called Shooting Star 2020 and Orion and Polaris will be the train names

    The helplessness you feel speeding up the lift hill in a tiny 2-seat/row train, with just that little T-bar holding you in is, IMHO, one of the best parts of MF
  10. Planning 2 days at HW end of July (25-26 thurs/fri). Figured 2 days would be plenty but am really hoping for small crowds--esp. at the waterpark. I've heard Indiana schools are in session since they do year-round there. Anyone have a feel for typical weekday crowds out there?

    It's finished...the 50 stall bathroom for Xbase we all wanted has been completed. Happy 2020

    I don't think any of this has spoiled anything unless you've allowed it to. GP folks I've talked to are simply head over heels that KI is getting a coaster that will approach the height of the Eiffel Tower-that's it. It's easy to lose perspective when you're stuck in an echo chamber of disappointment over minutiae. Most normal people will be incredibly excited. Just because you opened your present early and didn't like it so much doesn't mean others will do the same.
