  1. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Oldschool75's prediction makes the most sense IMO. Between FOF and The Racer is the ideal spot. It could go back behind Banshee or it could go back where DA was. I also think the new possible Coney BBQ restaurant is going there because there will be even bigger crowds in this area because of the new possible Giga in 19 or 20. KI is always looking to the future and I'm sure the Coney BBQ could be the first step in a much bigger (giga) plan in 19. My only concern with getting a giga in 19 is that Canada's Wonderland is rumored to get a coaster that year. Usually, it seems Cedar Fair doesn't release large coasters in its bigger parks the same year. They seem to stagger the coasters built out over different years.
  2. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Even if there is a height restriction, it's probably no less than 400' and KI could possibly do what Great America did recently with it's height restriction, which was to put in a request to have it raised.
  3. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I've never heard of any height restriction at KI.
  4. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I appreciate that. Nothing wrong with trying to see all the angles.
  5. The Giga Speculation Thread

    The only thing that I'm trying to point out, is that IMO, the evidence is stronger that it's an official tease by KI PR than just a prank by someone else. I'll just leave it at that.
  6. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Based on the evidence of it being shoveled more than once after Winterfest closed, appearing the next day after the Twitter post, and being in an area not accessible to guests, I would say the evidence points to KI PR. That is me saying it is very possible that KI PR did this, but not certainly, as I don't have 100% proof that it was (for those of us that confuse easily).
  7. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Changed it to "probably". Sorry for confusing you.
  8. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I hope not. That's just cruel.
  9. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Really?! I guess KI's Twitter post of Mystic's webcam snapshot pic (all while mentioning snow in the post) just the day before the message appeared was just complete coincidence.
  10. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Kings Island was the 2nd highest in amusement park attendance in the U.S. for 2016 behind Cedar Point and continues to be top 5 year in and year out. So, the question is not if it receives a giga, but when. This latest giga tease is probably from KI PR, but for all we know, it could be a tease for 2022 instead of 2019. Bottom line is simply this, if we do not see any kind of construction or clearing on or shortly after opening day, this tease is probably not for 2019.
  11. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Yes, I agree, DiamondBanshee.
  12. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Don or someone from KI posted a Twitter snapshot of the Mystic Timber webcam on Dec.29th , only a day before the mysterious "Giga" appeared in the snow. Of course he/they mentioned the train, but I looked back on all of KI's posts on Twitter for months, and no other similar pic was posted. So, it's not like it was just coincidence, or was it? Oh, and by the way, the post does mention snow. Hmmmm......
  13. 2018 Construction in Coney Mall

    Yes, considering he is "100%" sure it was one.
  14. The Giga Speculation Thread

    I know, saw it. That would put it at almost twice the cost of Prowler and they are both very similar rides in terms of scale with exception of theming and a little extra cost for terrain. Numbers don't add up IMO.
  15. The Giga Speculation Thread

    Ha! I knew someone was going to say that. Yes, that probably drove cost up a little bit, but not 4 million. Also, consider Cedar Fair most likely has a some sort of "package deal" or contract with GCI that stipulates lower cost per project based on number of projects given to them the last ten years or so (Hint: WindSeeker). It happens frequently in business, especially in construction.
