Diamondback Construction Thread (Updated 3-19-09)


Recommended Posts

I have not been to Kings Island since August 9. I am having serious withdrawals, and I can't wait to see for myself how this construction is coming along.

Don't get me wrong, I look forward to all the updates, but there is just something about seeing it for yourself.

Hey everybody! This is my first post! I was so happy when I saw them putting that first piece of track in place! woo! LOVE IT!

Ok if Diamondback's doesn't look like those, then here you go. DB HammerHead Nitro HammerHead SilverStar HammerHead Behemoth HammerHead Behemoth Layout Depiction of HammerHead

Any discussion that results in me looking at pictures of Nitro is one I am in favor of! And in saying that, I am on sound footing! Terpy, whose sign off line could be called a footer

Well I seem to be the only one watching the webcam even when they aren't doing anything, and That has paid off!

In the Picture below you can see a shadow of what could be a new support, (Which is likely because there are less yellow supports on the bottom left hand of the screen) right in between the first Lift Support:

In this Picture if you look to the side you will see the HUGE crane, positioned right where they would be to lift the next support:

The shadow that is just to the left of the first lift support is for this support here. The shadow that goes between the first lift support is the shadow of the new crane.

Now the supports by the Crypt/Train look tan, not yellow!?

As I recall, they're supposed to. The lift supports are supposed to be yellow, then out in the woods they turn to grey in an effort to blend into the woods.

According to the animation, looks like the support is for mid-turn going up the second hill.

Also on another note, it seems no one has talked about how Diamondback will look at night. I'm thinking big flood lights for the yellow lift supports similar to TTD, while leaving the rest of the ride in the dark, save maybe for the hammerhead. Any other thoughts?

What? Why, it's a Rorschach inkblot test! I see a coaster under construction.

Sure you do, said the bored psychoanalyst. Tell me about your childhood. . .Was it an emotional roller coaster?

...And although a dog performing in a circus exhibited Rorschach movement, a cat catching a mouse or a fish darting through water did not, because, according to the founder, significant motion had to be "human-like" in function."...

For me everything is a Roller Coaster. Me Likey the coasters. Can't get enough of the Coasters.

Speaking of which, in addition to Diamondback, wouldn't it be cool if Kings Island finally got a Coasters, or better yet, a Johnny Rockets? And I know just the place to put it . . .I hope that idea has wings.

No, Interp, I mean ROLLER Coasters. :rolleyes:

No, that yellow support is for the bottom of the first hill! No ifs, ands or buts about it!

Can't wait to see what goes on this week, judging by the crane in Swan Lake it looks like they are getting ready to put up the Lift Supports.

And it's nice to see the progress over in the woods and ravine, the entire ride is being erected wonderfully.
