You call others childish for sharing their views, and then you drop this golden nugget. Brilliant.
Yep. Just adding a purposeful hypocritical statement because I dislike being too serious. :3

(I probably deserve it if you make fun of me though. So feel free to whenever you please in the future.)

I am pretty confident that the log flume is safe.  Nothing I have seen in my opinion points towards its removal.

If it is a coaster, I hope for a longer ride. The new coaster at Holiday World is fun but was really disappointed in how short the ride is.

Standing in line for the train currently, and there are a LOT of markers. At least 5x as many as there were last time I was here. Whatever is happening, it seems to be speeding up.

I noticed the markers just in walking past the train station. There's a lot of them back through there.

Probably on some sort of tour, I would venture to guess.

 

Running for the door now  :D

Lol, right. They went back behind Slaughterhouse and didn't see them again.

More markers, and workers cutting down trees near the reservoir.

If anyone sees new markers, let us know what colors they are. Thanks :)

I had a hard time telling if these were pink or orange. They look kinda in between. They also have something written on them but I couldn't tell what it was.

I was gonna say, they look orangeish from the photos, but I couldn't be completely sure, haha.

 

Orange usually indicates the presence of underground utilities or telecom.

 

Edit: Now that I look further, they do look more pink than orange..

But at the same time, they aren't the same pink as the others. They're kind of a peach color.

Mean Streak at Cedar Point has orange markers all over its footers so does that mean its for communication lines? I don't look too much into color.

Not sure if some of these pics repeat, but here is what I got. There are a mix of Pink and Orange. Orange looks around the WWC path, but the pink are further back in the woods.

With how small the area of interest is, I'm starting to believe if it is a coaster that maybe they are taking their time on prepping the land to save money. This might not be something that's completed till 2018 if that's the case.

I have a feeling things will speed up after WWC opens, because currently whatever this is is happening, AND WWC is being rehabbed. There's a lot going on at once and WWC is likely prioritized so it opens in time.

I'm sure it won't take Billy Bob and Bubba long to clear out that area :rolleyes:

Beast Gal, you can reject the Dinosaurs Alive relocation idea as much as you want, but it is much more likely than Kings Island getting your Intamin "cowboy coaster".

Here is an excerpt from the book I am currently reading that gives some insight:

"Designing an entirely new coaster concept may take as long as three to four years while a medium-sized wooden may be designed in as few as nine months." the book goes on to give a timeline of a coaster installation, and through out, it details a wooden coaster taking significantly less time overall to install.

If its in a parking lot I would think.  Does it mention how long to clear a forest? :rolleyes:

How many markers are typical for a B&M coaster?  Are they typically spaced that close together?  If this is a coaster, could that be an indication of a woodie?

"Survey: A week or two of surveying the lay of the land and plotting out where the foundations will go.

Foundations: two to four months of digging and pouring the foundations, after which they must set to cure for a period of time."
