silver2005 Posted April 16, 2016 Share Posted April 16, 2016 I think we need to dispense with the timing issue on whether this is a coaster or not. Its clear Ouimet runs the chain differently than Kinzel did, including with parks' future plans and how major attractions are added. With Kings Island being one of CF's top tier parks and with Kings Island being a park that tries new things (remember how the park was the first to utilize Dinosaurs Alive!, Fast Lane, and the meal plans?), they could be trying out new ways to incorporate rides into their future, including how they're spaced. Say what you want about how Holiday World is run, but with their addition of Thunderbird, Kings Island still has to keep on their toes. Though Kentucky Kingdom is slightly more under KI's radar than what they were during the Six Flags era, they do share enough of a market where Kings Island has to make a mark. Sure, the park has a fairly new Banshee under their belt and other things more in their favor, but they are still vying for customers from similar markets to HW and KK. I think a coaster for 2017, or anything equally surprising compared to what we're used to seeing from Kings Island would be perfectly warranted. See Kings Island's response to KK's build up in the late 90's. 17 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
