    Nice catch, but Diamondback has 32 seats too. And so does GateKeeper. And Banshee. And most B&M's. It think about all of their 4 wides have 8 cars of 4. No. We suspect it'll either be on the building where you enter the queue or in the grass between the queue and ride exit.
  2. Mods, you really should just lock this thread. While it technically is about KI, it's becoming personal and political and has no place on a theme park forum.
  3. No, you automatically assume the accuser is right and want people's lives ruined without finding out the facts. And you should learn the difference between indifference and impartiality.
  4. Due process is a given? Maybe you shouldn't come to this thread if you can't comprehend due process. Our entire legal system is based on it and you are perfectly willing to throw it out based on a single news report based on statements from one person's lawyers.
  5. I wouldn't ride a bus in India, let alone an amusement ride.

    Pretty sure Banshees was on a Friday.
  7. Just make sure that if you ever were to ride and die, you come back here and let us know.

    The height of the ground at the top of the lift is higher than at the base. Measured at the top of the lift it's only 286 ft.

    They just built a 7 inversion coaster here, so the thought that "Lets not add 30 ft to the height because it'll be too intense" was a consideration is a very weak argument. Theres only two serious reasons they chose what they did. Either they decided they didn't want KI to have a record breaker, or they didn't want to spend the money for a record breaker. So either KI is underserving, or it's a budget giga.

    Theres also the possibility that to make a coaster taller, faster and longer than Fury, they would had to pay $40 million and that just wasn't in the budget.

    Actually, the people doing the teasing will be the marketing team. They are almost certainly salaried staff, so it really isn't going to cost them anything. KI probably has their own print shop, so a few signs on a fence is going to cost almost nothing. At this point though, I think any teasing will be tied to when they set the announcement date, and, more importantly, when 2020 gold passes go on sale.

    Hyper and Giga are just made up terms. As far as the manufacturer is concerned it's a Mega Coaster. KI could call it a Super Dooper Strata Coaster and theres no one out there that could officially say they are wrong. It wouldn't change anything. It's 296 from station footer to top of the lift. They could build it on the beach or on a mountain and it would be 296 ft. The steel doesn't know what the elevation is.
