  1. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Since there a ton of posts about gigas on other threads, I decided to create a central topic just dedicated to the speculation of the giga coaster that most coaster enthusiasts believe we are going to get in the future. What we know: Cedar Fair has added 3 gigas to its parks since 2010 Each giga installed is taller than the last Kings Island is the only major Cedar Fair park without one What we can speculate: The conception of the coaster itself B&M is a likely candidate The old S.O.B station might be used ^If not in Action Zone then it could be put in X-Base^ Possibly a green color since KI has no coasters that color Like I said, this is just a speculation thread. "The more you know, the better you can speculate for what's ahead"
  2. New Hotel Being Built On Former KI Resort Site

    The majority of hotels near Kings Island are actually more close to the Beach Waterpark. This hotel will be closer to the actual park right near the main entrance so that'll be a plus.
  3. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I thought the same thing. I've heard however that the name linked to the project is called "Alpha", but that's speculation. Also, the names Centurion and The Ledge are still active trademarks
  4. Kings Island 2018 Discussion Thread

    Strata confirmed
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    True, but it could be for any type of ride the chain is adding. Copperheads are found in the southeast to east part of the US, so it could possibly be for any Cedar Fair park in that region. http://www.snake-removal.com/copperhead.html Then again, Diamondback rattlesnakes aren't found in Ohio yet KI has one...
  6. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Something interesting I noticed unrelated to a giga, or maybe it is, but Cedar Fair has trademarked the name "Copperhead Strike" I highly doubt this would be a name for a possible KI giga but it sounds like a cool name nonetheless. https://www.trademarkia.com/copperhead-strike-87868589.html
  7. RMC throughout Cedar Fair?

    RMC's presence has been confirmed in 2 Cedar Fair parks and it's highly rumored that Hurler at Carowinds will be next. That being said, is it possible that RMC will reach other Cedar Fair parks in the coming years? I honestly don't think so because there aren't any other Cedar Fair Woodies that desperately need the RMC treatment. Unless Cedar Fair and RMC experiment with non-wooden rides. RMC did do some track work for S&S with their 4D free spins after all.
  8. Expand X-Base?

    Some things I'd like to see in X-Base Restrooms A better established food stand Theming consistent to the rides in the area A flat ride package A new coaster Expansion X-Base has the most potential out of any sections of the park to improve and be unique. Much like how there's a story to Rivertown's theme (abandoned; a lot of forgotten businesses), X-Base could have a story all focused around Flight of Fear and theme the area to that. Sci-fi has always been extremely popular, especially with Marvel and Star Wars movies, so KI should try and appeal to those interests.
  9. The Giga Speculation Thread

    @IndyGuy4KI one thing really quick. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion. Just remember that Cedar Fair pays a lot of money for those "snooze fests" so both enthusiasts and the gp can enjoy them. Furthermore, if B&M coasters were "snooze fests" they wouldn't have 19 entries on the 2017 Golden Ticket Awards top 50 whereas Intamin only has 9.
  10. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Right? Plus if they're snooze fests then parks wouldn't even be buying them in the first place.
  11. Park Nitpicks

    Ever been on a great ride or have been to a park you really liked but have some nitpicks? Well discuss them here! I thought it would have been cool to make the tombstones near the pretzel on Banshee bigger to add a near miss element to the ride experience. Also Alpengeist being only 5ft short of 200ft which irritates me for some reason
  12. Dorney Park?

    @silver2005 I hate to say it but I feel like Dorney would benefit from Six Flags' practices. At least they get something every year.
  13. Dorney Park?

    Am I the only one that thinks Cedar Fair should invest more into Dorney Park? I understand that they have to keep feeding the top 5 and build up CGA, but I believe Dorney has a lot of potential for success. They have a cool coaster lineup but are still inferior to Hershey Park which is just an hour away. Kanonen looks cool, (if Dorney is indeed the recipient), but I was hoping the park would get a GCI or something that isn't a hand-me-down. Dorney has the potential to be Pennsylvania's premier amusement park but they keep falling short. Thoughts?
  14. Dorney Park?

    I'm sure Dorney park fans would love a 4d free spin or even a larson loop at this point. What say you @VekomaRulz?
  15. The Giga Speculation Thread

    That's similar to what I had months ago
  16. Park Nitpicks

    I always get the Angry Orchard Easy Apple Tree
  17. The Giga Speculation Thread

    He actually didn't die in this one
  18. Its typical for transit systems to update their fleet. I just rode D.C.'s metro and its a huge improvement
  19. Dorney Park?

    True, Dorney was pretty well taken care of back then. Still, its been over 10 years- you'd think the park would at least get a new, low investment coaster.
  20. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I just started it so I can't remember
  21. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I'm watching it on Hulu right now. "Sup Witches?
  22. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    I would love for alternating scenes in Adventure Express. Different props and effects work per cycle, similar to Verbolten or Mystic Timbers
  23. Park Nitpicks

    @McSalsa I knew I wasn't the only one that nicknamed it "Project Firehawk"!
