    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    I thought KI stated that it would be dismantled and not scrapped.

    Next NEW Coaster

    Also, The Vortex being the highest roller coaster in the world when it opened and having most inversions. FOF being first indoor LIM launch, and of course SOB.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    Early summer 2019. We didn't see track for Banshee until early summer of 13. I can't remember when track for DB was first produced.

    Rumor has it, that it may go to Dorney.
  5. I have to say, this looks like it is being done right. Love the pond, covered bridge and billboards with lighting. Will probably look amazing.

    Kings Island Removing an Attraction?

    It'll either be tomorrow, or hopefully for the official 10/28/ funeral (if there is one) . I remember CP dropped RMC hints at their Mean Streak funeral.

    Does anyone think KI will drop a small 2020 hint tomorrow at the announcement?

    Kings Island Confirms removal of Coaster

    Yeah, I highly doubt it's Vortex. I guess we'll find out Friday.

    Kings Island Confirms removal of Coaster

    What worries me is that Firehawk sits on a relatively flat piece of land that a dive coaster would fit perfectly on.

    Kings Island Confirms removal of Coaster

    This seems to be the trend with Cedar Fair lately. Replace (or convert) a maintenance nightmare and/or unpopular coaster with something much better: Mean Streak with Steel Vengeance, Hurler with Twisted Timbers, and now (hopefully) Firehawk with B&M giga. I just hope it's not a dive coaster, though. 3 dive coasters in 4 years just seems lame to me.

    I hope FH stays. The 11 chairs tells me it's probably FH, though. Not happy

    Firehawk makes more sense because that is where the alleged 2020 coaster is probably going to go. It leaves that whole area towards DA and back behind Banshee open to go wherever. Just hope they don't use Firehawk's blah station.

    They just repaired a lot of footers on Vortex and got a new sign. Plus, it's one of the last great Arrow loopers left standing and a classic. Doubt it.

    Hmmmmmmm.........bet you Cedar Point's next coaster is a B&M flyer.

    Hopefully, this isn't true. Firehawk is a unique ride. Taking it out would take away from KI's diverse coaster lineup. KI is blessed with so much land to expand. I disagree with tearing any coaster down at KI to build another coaster unless absolutely necessary, especially when CP is landlocked and still finds ways to keep their existing coasters when building new ones.
