KIC Enthusiast (4/13)



  1. The rumors from some CP fans is that it's going to Michigan's Adventure. I personally hope it comes to KI. I have always loved that ride. I wonder if it would fit in the large open space in Area 72 back by Orion break run where some people on here supposedly saw some soil samples spots?
  2. ^ I don't think the coaster would go in the trees like you depict. I believe they would remove Timberwolf, Invertigo and Congo Falls and it would flyover the entrance area and turn around in employee parking lot to fly back over again.
  3. MF is better than Fury and Orion.
  4. I still believe it's overrated. Although, while being very good the first half of the layout, Fury becomes extremely anticlimactic once it reaches the very drawn out and slow helix. Orion, on the other hand, at least keeps good pacing until the break run. I've always thought Fury is top 10 worthy but not the best coaster on the planet like a lot of enthusiasts seem to think.
  5. I agree. This seems like this is more than a just a road being prepped for. If they wanted to just pave an access road they would just lay asphalt like they did with Orion's. I don't remember seeing any markers for Orion's new access road back there. Also, isn't there already a shuttle picking the employees up at the dorm building?
  6. I think AE is safe for now. Vortex, Invertigo and FoF were the only rides listed still in operation in Orion's theming along with all of the other defunct rides of KI's past . Vortex was closed shortly after. Invertigo and FoF are only ones left on that list that aren't retired. If we read into the theming, they will probably be the next to go. But having said that, Vortex was closed because" reaching end of its service life" but there are other rides similar in scale by Arrow still in operation like Lochness Monster at BGW which is almost 10 years older than Vortex was. So, who really knows with Cedar Fair. AE is a great Mine Train ride, I hope it's here for a long time.
  7. Fury is Intense the first half...... until it hits the huge, pointless helix. Then it crawls the rest of the way. Orion is fast until the break run. I'm still going to give Fury the edge, but not by much.
  8. Do you think the ride will be even better in the future when the trains have more weight by running full capacity as opposed to running at half capacity now?
  9. I have ridden Fury 325, Intimidator 305 and MF as well, but not Orion as of yet. You seem to be in the minority here with your opinion regarding Orion, as I will probably be in the minority with this opinion; I remember thinking that Fury 325 was a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but only the first half. It hits the helix about halfway through and slows down to a craaaaaaawl the rest of the ride, While Millennium Force maintains it's speed throughout. MF is still my favorite Giga.
  10. Awesome! Sounds amazing, Don. Can't wait to ride! Is it your new favorite Giga?
  11. I don't think they leave at night. It looks like same cars have been parked in same spot for weeks.
  12. I'm sure this has probably already been mentioned, but why have all of those cars been parked in KI's lot for all of these weeks?
  13. It doesn't spread as well outside via aerosolizing in the heat and humidity, either. Sunlight apparently kills it. Besides, I would not have a problem wearing a mask if it meant we could go this year. Would you?
  14. I'm hoping for July. Apparently, the virus doesn't survive on surfaces when the heat and humidity are high.
  15. How do you know the footers are still there? The drone flyover that I saw with Vortex site flyover was from 2-3 weeks ago.
