    What do you think KI would get in 2020?

    I'm on board for a B&M Giga or Floorless roller coaster. People will think I'm weird for saying this, but I really enjoy Rougarou a lot at Cedar Point. Would love for something like that to come to Kings Island one of these years.
  2. I've been away from KI central lately. Has there been anything new in construction for KI antique cars?

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    Plus all the trees are leaf-less right now which makes an area seem smaller than it really should be this time of year.

    Dinos Alive and Xbase

    That was back in July before the announcement. Now my hope is that the rumored GIGA coaster is green. Time will tell come 2020-2021.

    Maybe the scrap metal will be turned into new track for project 2020 GIGA.

    Ask Kings Island a Question

    Any chance that Kings Island could start selling those big giant fun size park maps that Cedar Point sells for $1.99? I asked this back in May but want to see If Kings Island has considered it since.

    Coasterstock 2019 - May 17th & 18th

    I plan to be there for Coaster stock. I missed it this year because I graduated college the same weekend coaster stock was going on. Maybe they'll have a behind the scenes tour of 2020! Please note, I'm being optimistic here!

    The Beast vs Mystic Timbers

    ^ I agree with you about how they are both special in their own way, but I have to give the nod to The Beast. I grew up riding The Beast with my family since the early 90s to 2001. I still went after that year, but we all grew up in the family and it was hard to get us all together. Long story short, I love going to Kings Island now with my good friends now and days. Mystic Timbers is an awesome ride and like others have said, it would be cool to see what The Beast would be like today if it was built by GCI in today's world. The only thing I would change about The Beast is that they don't trim it half to death. I remember when they used to let The Beast go crazy without the trims. Getting back to Mystic Timbers though, I love how they incorporated a story behind the ride along with a theme. You can say what you want to about the Shed, but to me it's fun to listen to the music in the dark before you find out what's going to greet you before getting back to the station. I personally love the Bats coming at me the most. The song I love the most is Man eater, hence my signature.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

  12. Why did they remove the wooden fence with winterfest going on? People might try to go over there and walk around in that.

    Innovations for the future

    I hope Kings Island gets a Floorless roller coaster someday.
  14. This is going to sound dumb, but I hope the cars aren't Zebra colored like that one picture showed up above.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    ^ That Giga looks like it has a 90 degree drop. That would be awesome!
