this sounds pretty true except 2015!? Kings Island wont wait that long
They've waited this long...
If you put a timeline out, say they announce the SOB is being dismantled this fall. Will take until 2013 to complete that. Would be 2014 at the absolute earliest to have a new ride open.
Doing a major refurb would be 2014 as well, as just redoing the track isn't going to completely change the "ride experience". Would have to be some major structural changes made as well.
true.. Could Kings Island make a new part of the park like add a new area possibly or will they build the new coaster in the Action Zone area?
