  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. The Giga Speculation Thread

    No I haven't, but from an outside perspective I think they fare well as they resemble a bit of Cincinnati history
  3. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Mighty Canadian Minebuster and Wild Beast good considering they're copies of the Shooting Star and Wildcat from Coney Island
  4. The Giga Speculation Thread

    For some reason I was thinking of a flyer when you said wing. I still think a wing would be a suitable replacement for Time Warp
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    They currently have a wing coaster and an invert. If you see either one of those disappear there's a good chance that's the kind of coaster you'll see in the future.
  6. Article on Gravity Group

    @TombRaiderFTW That's interesting to think about. In terms of product, I always considered GCI more compact where GG is more spread out. Speaking of old GCIs, I'm curious if we'll see a RMC Gwazi
  7. What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    @King Ding Dong Shark fixed himself so it butchered the joke
  8. What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    My hrandpa would love some smaller rides

    Blasphemy dear sir! Did you not read the snow?!
  10. Kings Island Easter Eggs

    I am highly offended... I used PowerPoint.
  11. What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    I mean they already built the wall in Coney Mall.. That's as far as I'll go with that joke

    To be honest, I thought you were being serious as well. Its harder to detect sarcasm online
  13. The Giga Speculation Thread

    But is it worth the extra digging is the question
  14. Article on Gravity Group

    I love both companies equally so I'm trying to see the benefit of working with GCI over GG. Better prices? More flexible? Any ideas?
  15. Kings Island Easter Eggs

    I was looking at old pictures and saw something carved on a tree
  16. The Giga Speculation Thread

    That cuts off the maintenance roads though
  17. What ride did KI make the biggest mistake in getting ride of

    Boo Boo's Baggage Claim. The park will never be the same without it
  18. X Base

    @Hawaiian Coasters 325 Here's the original thread
  19. X Base

    I've been to Kings Island for many years and I have to fav sections: Rivertown and Coney Mall. I love Coney Mall mostly for X-base. I know Dinosaurs Alive is right next to Firehawk but is there a chance to expand to make it its own section or will it stay a dead end subsection of Coney Mall? I apologize if there is a similar thread.
  20. Ideas for the Crypt building?

    Its been rumored that something will be done to the Crypt building in the future. What are your ideas? I'm no architect but I personally think it could be utilized for an indoor/outdoor ride similar to Mystery Mine with a cool backstory.
  21. The Giga Speculation Thread

    That was a parody concept I made years ago. A couple of years ago, one member suggested that the park should put some type of launch coaster between The Racer and FOF. I have to find the thread where he/she posted it
  22. What would you like changed to KI in the next five years?

    This just hit me, I would really like to see the park have least 3 coasters over 200ft in the distant future- Diamondback, a giga, and hopefully a dive machine. With Cedar Point currently having 6 coasters over 200ft, I think the chain will be more comfortable allowing higher coasters at their other parks, especially with competition with other parks from different chains.
  23. The Giga Speculation Thread

    @Maverick44 I've ridden my fair share of intamins too and everyone likes what they like. However its hardly realistic that we'll see any major new Intamin installs within Cedar Fair unless its an impulse coaster or a used ride. Intamin has dropped the ball when it comes to reliably: Maverick and I305 had to be redesigned to make safety improvements, Shoot the Rapids could have killed its passengers, TTD and Xcelerator's cables snapped causing injuries, Superman: Ride of Steel failed to detect an unsecure restraint leading to the rider being ejected from the ride. The company even states that accidents are inevitable which, in my opinion, is a sorry excuse for their reliability and doesn't really accept accountability. Its a known fact that the newer Intamin rides aren't the safest so why want something that could cause potential harm to guests? Companies like B&M, Mack, RMC, GCI, etc make rides that are a lot more safe and reliable than anything Intamin has made

    It would be cool it they were painted to match the train colors- red, brown, and green
