    I think that is going in the wrong direction. Coasters are loud regardless of their design and materials. Why would you want to built it towards your new dorms? You are eliminating space that could be used to build a 2nd dorm building, if the demand is there.

    I think the other way back through the trees towards the river makes more sense. 300’ is going to require a serious lift hill and that will need a bunch of space.

    I think this is a better idea:


    I like this as well, only issue is the interference with the fireworks launch area. Guess it doesn't necessarily need to go that close though.

     We saw prep work at the end of the season before work had started on Diamondback during that specific off season (Did that make any sense?). I’d imangine with the project being presumably larger, we would have begun to see noticeable work begin at the end of last season if the ride is to open in 2020. Of course this could totally be the case and I/we just are not yet aware of it. 

    It's very possible the removal of a major coaster could in fact be the prep work.

    I understand that but if the park is at capacity is there enough shelter for everyone. I have been at the park durning a warning some years back and stood in one of the IE Street shops. Nothing happened of course but Im sure that is not the safest place to be 

    Every area has a designated shelter in case of emergencies, when I worked at Racer we were told to shelter under the station as close to the center as possible.

    King's Dominion's Racer and Thunder Road is/was a superior model to King's Islands Racer.   King's Island's has that stupid split at the turn arounds where the other train is a football field away.  Racer 75 and Thunder Road keep the trains side by side longer before the turn around.  KI Racer looses the feeling of racing at that point.  The ultimate retrackign would make the turn arounds come together into a deulling turn around (like Lightning Racer), but that probably will not happen.

    How dare you question John Allen's grand design
