  1. There is lots of speculation that this is the actual coaster that was on display at IAAPA this year. It's reasonable to assume that RMC may have given them a good deal on what was essentially a 'display model', for lack of a better term.
  2. http://in-white-assessor.governmax.com/propertymax/rover30.asp?sid=3F Just search "Indiana Beach". It appears that the land was sold a while ago though and Apex had been leasing it. While this does certainly make it more complex to work out a sale, it isn't impossible.
  3. This would certainly be an interesting development. I would love to know what Fun Spot's long term vision for the park would be. The area is not exactly Orlando or Atlanta in terms of market but I would love to see them give IB a new lease on life.
  4. Definitely sad news. Cornball Express was worth the trip alone. Hopefully someone steps up to give it another go.
  5. The words 'hyper' and 'giga' mean absolutely nothing to 99.99999% of the people that visit KI. We have to remember that an incredibly small portion of the park going (or potential park going) population looks at these things the way a lot of us do. Enthusiasts will choose to visit (or not) based on the finished product, not the words used to describe it. A 300 foot drop is plenty to market this ride around.
  6. Never trust the opinion of anyone who enjoys Invertigo.
  7. Exactly. I think the community tends to forget what an extremely small percentage of guests think about these things like we do. Roughly 99.9999% could care less how it compares to Fury. Heck, most probably don't even know Fury exists at all. I also think that (and I fully admit that I have never seen data on this particular topic) some of you are vastly overestimating the number of guests that regularly visit both CP and KI. The idea that, in 2019, the stats of any CF addition are being dictated by what has or is going to occur at another park in the chain is laughable. The stats of a ride in Charlotte or Toronto are not dictating the stats of this ride.
  8. I fully expect this to be where our RMC goes in a few years.
  9. See the previous pages. All 4 CF gigas would (roughly) fit in the cleared area.
  10. I still think of King Cobra when I think about going to KI. I never rode it but I will always remember seeing it and being sure all those people were about to die. It had a very intimidating presence.
  11. It would seem unlikely, based on how the ride plazas for recent CF installations have looked. But I suppose you never know!
  12. This thread is going to be a Vekoma Madhouse.
  13. I feel pretty comfortable saying that last part is the key. As for an element I'd like to see, how about a double down?
