    The Giga Speculation Thread

    I don't think Canada's Wonderland's attendance jumped a lot after they built Behemoth and Leviathan either, yet they are about to get what looks to be, a huge dive coaster. Don has mentioned on multiple occasions that KI will continue to build world class rides. Just hard to believe KI doesn't get more love from CF top management, considering it is one the top ranked amusement parks in the US.

    That is a possibility, but KI has a lot of coasters with inversions, as Knott's does not. Plus, KI just got Banshee somewhat recently, which is why I believe they would want to put something different in. Logic points to a Giga being the next coaster, but, my logic and their ROI could be much different.

    Cedar Fair purchased KI in 2006. They have built 4 rollercoasters since then, which is an average of one coaster every three years. If you go by the average, we will be getting another one in 2020. I doubt it will be a family coaster, as we have just gotten MT. A dive doesn't seem likely because of CW most likely receiving one next year, and a Mack doesn't seem likely since Carowinds is rumored to get one next year (unless we get a Mack spinning coaster), so, that leaves an RMC of some kind, an Intamin (which is unlikely), or B&M wing or giga. IMO, those are the most likely to be next.

    Yeah, makes no sense since KI is one their best parks in terms of attendance. Carowinds is only around 2 million per year in attendance, where KI is well over 3 million. How is KI not mentioned?

    You need to start taking pics of what you see and post them on here to show us because I have seen nothing of what you have said regarding construction in DA.

    I was thinking the same thing. They look old

    rode WindSeeker as well today, and saw no retention walls, drainage piping, or clearing. Don't know where people are seeing this.

    I wouldn't characterize DB as "floater" airtime coaster. Definitely think it's ejector, just not violent ejector. I also have ridden a handful of Intamin's and I don't think they have near the airtime the B&M's do. At the same time, I think Intamin's are more intense than B&M's in terms of speed and laterals. The most violent ejector airtime that I have experienced to date is Twisted Colossus. That thing hurts when it throws you up. Fun though.

    I don't the Diamondback is a "snooze fest". It is an airtime machine and that is the reason it consistently ranks in the top ten.

    IF there is a height restriction, it is because of the the very small Lebanon-Warren County Regional Airport, which is pretty far away from KI. Planes hardly ever fly over KI for their flight path to land there as it is. Also, If there are restrictions, KI could always request a height restriction increase, similar to what California's Great America just did with their 280 foot attraction that was just approved, rumored to open next season. CGA is much closer to a much larger and busier airport than Warren County's and they were still approved.

    I agree that it's all a reach, but fun to ponder. I also agree that the Giga Crane game wasn't a sign regarding Mystic Timbers construction, as MT is not a Giga.

    Good eye. That pic does point to where all of the discussed activity is taking place, at, or near the former DA. I'd also like to point out that the place where the T-Rex was at the entrance to the park advertising DA, has also not changed (with exception to T-Rex being gone). It's almost like it's just there waiting for another big something to go in it's place with a similar advertising theme, perhaps. Similar to the DA plaza still being there, but surrounded by a lot of fence with a big sign at the entrance (That they could have easily removed), now blank and seemingly reduced to a designated smoking area, all while the infamous snow shoveled "Giga" appeared in that very direction as well. Also, isn't the Giga crane game over near DA? Hmmmmm.......probably nothing, but interesting, nonetheless.

    A lot of trees, or just a few? What area by The Beast?
