I dont see the big deal, i think its good for the park, more people means more things will be open, along side most restaurants that are double sides might be open. Racer might have both sides open at all times. Think of the possibilities with this. 

I was quoting the above poster who was saying they should be a second gate for employees.  I'm all for them building the dorm and hiring more and better overall workers.  Especially in the food department.

we would see cement trucks and I haven't seen any.

I saw cement trucks a couple of days ago on the Banshee cam, but they continued on past AE, and not in the general area of the area being excavated.

Which were likely related to the Kings Mills Antique Autos construction.

I wish it was footers! If they started those 2 years ahead of time. This coaster would be MASSIVE. @Hawaiian Coasters 325 maybe it would be called " MASSIVE FORCE" haha j/k man

With the deer thing being mentioned in the KI blog, me and a friend were joking about if we got a giga themed around deer, with a pair of big antlers on the front car of the trains. Honestly though, although it wouldn't really be practical for X-base, it actually would be interesting to say the least.

Occasionally seeing deer near the tracks on The Beast always freeks me out.

I have only seen a Skunk at Kings Island during nighttime: we were in line for The Beast, and were on the long covered "bridge" part of the que that leads into the main station. One of my friends saw the skunk, and we began to get nervous it was gonna spray everyone on the bridge. But then it just passed under us, and we saw it had a slice of Pizza (likely LaRosa's). Not even a half-eaten slice, but a FULL slice. LOL, s/he had dinner, probably stolen from some unsuspecting person. The Skunk headed towards The Crypt building and we went on and moved towards the station and got our Beast night ride afterwards. TBH, I thought this encounter was cute.

I have had an encounter where I SMELLED a skunk at KI, though. Noticed it very early in the day- it was near the Reds HOF Grille and Mystic Timbers entrance. Man, did it stink, AND IT STUNK ALL DAY (we smelled it heading to Mystic Timbers for ERT and every time we went past later on as well). Eww. And this was probably after-the-fact, I feel horrible for whomever it was who got sprayed. Unlike the other skunk "encounter", not cute. Stinky!

I also have seen deer at Kings Island, but only on the Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad (never on Beast or any other ride). They were located near the section where the fake building props were, and on the 2nd time we saw them, there was a baby. Awe.

Also all of this was last year, if anyone was wondering.

I want to talk about height for a little bit. Yukon Striker and Valravn share the same height but Yukon Striker has a longer drop. Would a KI giga match/be within feet of Fury in terms of height or would there be a significant gap?

I can't remember if this has been answered before, but does KI have a mandated height limit? I'm not talking about speculation or should/shouldn't be. I mean a definitive know there is/isn't with sourcing.

The codename they could use till it is announced is "The calender"
