    Wow! This thread has really taken on a life of it's own. Do I think we will see a giga in that spot...sure. Will I be happy? You bet! Do I care if it breaks any existing records? Not at all. KI has broke records before...some great installations, some not so good (I'm looking at you Son of Beast).  Funny thing is, I remember people on here (and all over) not being happy when Mystic Timbers was leaked/announced. And guess what? It's not the tallest, fastest, longest anything. But, it's a fantastic ride all the way through. A great addition to the world class coasters we are lucky enough to have at our home park. I can and have ridden MT all day and evening...cause it's fun and a great ride! And, if Banshee were just a bit taller to break a height record...what difference does it really make? It's perfect the way it is.
    I'll be happy with anything over 300' in that cleared spot, if that's indeed what's to come there. And if it's not, then guess what, I'm going to be thrilled that Cedar Fair loves KI enough to put in another great coaster when they could have just skipped over us. I guess I come from a different time and era, where we waited till things were announced and then enjoyed the hell out of whatever it was...it's supposed to be fun, right?

    The former SOB area behind Banshee, and what the park may put there, is related to this topic. One thing that doesn’t add much to the discussion is complaining.

    Thank you! This is basically what I was predicting.

    We have never seen leaks that met this level of detail, and had it not come to fruition. IIRC. 
    If you count the number of elements Leviathan has, it's pretty similar to the number for this concept. It wouldn't be unheard of having a giga this short. We might have an 80ft tall brake run though haha. Dang!
    I really feel like a lot of people on this thread are just in denial. This is not a quick photoshop job. This image is the result of lots of survey work for rides and topography (which simply isn't available on google), then you can finally draw in the other lines that represent a future coaster. That park hasn't ever put a red herring of plans like this yet; they're too busy actually getting the real thing on the ground. It's possible, but it's unlikely that it's fake.

    Please Lord no.... that's how all this whackadoodle craziness began yesterday...
    Just be patient, savor the mystique and clues as they come, and wait until the park officially announces.  
    Cake tastes better to me if I have to wait for it... and I enjoy the anticipation and speculation of how good its going to be... I dont need to be told all the ingredients by someone other than the chef.

    The sense of entitlement I am reading in this thread has driven me to post.

    We are incredibly lucky to be possibly getting such a great addition to the park. And those who seem bothered over what may or may not be true (those footings prints look pretty real but I have my questions about the full ride layout) just dont seem to be seeing the bigger picture.

    Kings Island has the perfect market to draw from. A loyal base of guests and passholders any other park in north america would dream of. Since 2007 we have consistently gotten major investment. Yes Cedar Point and carowinds may have gotten larger investments. But I don't think since before the days of paramount our park atmosphere has ever felt so complete and inviting. This year the small things... racer going trimless... the glockenspiel... the soon to be completed fountains. It all looks amazing.

    City population doesnt matter. Cincinnati is within a days drive to half the country's population. Why else did Amazon choose cvg as their cargo hub for prime air?
    I could agree with the outdoing cp sentiments if this was dick kinzel era Cedar Fair. Absolutely disagree at the moment. Mystic Timbers was a perfect addition. Banshee as well. Diamondback was amazing. All of these were perfect for our park already full of amazing rollercoasters.

    The terrain this coaster may take advantage of will allow for many great things in my opinion.

    I think we need to wait and see. It's only may. Many rides on paper dont look exciting but turn out to be blockbusters (maverick)

    In comparison to other former paramount parks, other than carowinds I must say we have been sweetened with major investment. When did kings dominion last get a new coaster from the ground up? 2010. Michigan's adventure? 2004(??)

    Believe me. We are not getting the short hand of the stick. 3 new coasters in a decade.

    Put things in perspective. Enjoy this season. The new changes. The little ones. Finding out what's coming.

    Wait and see.....

    And be grateful despite it possibly not being what was expected that we are getting an amazing addition.

    I'll repeat what I have said in many different formats, and I truly mean it...
    I've been a fan/attendee of KI for a long long time... well over 35 years... and I sampled the park under every form of ownership in those years.  I can say, for certain, Cedar Fair is doing a tremendous job with the park.  They have restored a flair/vibe to the park that was all but obscured for years.  (That includes all facets of the customer facing side of the business.) Those making the obviously informed decisions are to be commended.

    Just like everyone else on here, the hope for a new giga in that area sounds amazing. However, looking at it in person on Saturday...I'd sure love to see a custom RMC in that spot with some terrain hugging and long tunnels. That would be just as, or even better maybe.

    I personally like the updated/old look of International Street. The colorful buildings, pavers, nicer seating areas and open format remind me of being a kid when the park first opened. Also I visited for a few hours this past Saturday and the fountains were shooting up nice and high. Change is good in my humble opinion.
