I would eliminate red. We already have two B&Ms that are a darker shade of red. They almost certainly wouldnt build another red B&M.

I hope they have used all of the red paint they got on sale with Dick Kinzel as the head of Cedar Fair :P

I do think a white and black color scheme would look cool, and anyone who passes Clermont Steel Fabricators regularly, do you know what color the tracks actually were?

How about black track, silver rails and cross-ties with blue supports?

I'm gonna go out on a limb here- I wouldn't mind a deep shade of purple like Mako or Apollo's Chariot.

I'm on Bauer Road UDF off 32 now, so I'll update this post when I drive back by. 

 

Gray (unsure) and Brown (Hershey I assume)

Perhaps a nice Salmon color...soft on the eyes and not too feminine.  Says “hey!  We’re comfortable with our sexuality.”  Haha...sorry couldn’t help myself.  I don’t care what color it is as long as we get one (a giga).  It could be pink and I’d still ride it (no pun intended)

I like black and blue as well. Afterburn colors ring a bell.

^^ Cedar Fair may have gotten a discount on that color....with Valravn/Yukon Striker/Copperhead Strike! 

How about tye-dye :P

TBH a yellow, green or even purple track would be great IMO.

The gray track you mentioned could just be track that has yet to be painted

I doubt I'm the first to think this but this has been on my mind since the new year. Has anyone else heard the 20 year theory?

Yeah plenty of people have talked about about that. Personally I think it’s really just a coincidence considering Kings Island really needed both a Hyper rollercoaster and another large steel looping coaster.

Dont think so. It's not in the staging area, and doesnt appear to be the typical "primer gray" color.

I have not. What is the 20 year theory?

That Kings Island received the model of rollercoaster Cedar Point added 20 years earlier. Magnum XL - Diamond back, Raptor - Banshee, both installments 20 years after Cedar Point. Now the theory is 2020 for a giga since it’d be 20 years since Mill Force.

So 2027 is when I should be expecting KIs blitz coaster to open up? That is quite a coincidence though.

Since KI is focused on nostalgia, I think this confirms a GiGa version of Top Gun.  CF will once again feature a ride from the past, but what was old is new again.  They just haven't announced it yet because the contracts for the naming rights haven't been inked.  #GiGaconfirmed #TopGun2020KI #kidding #parody #parodyinghashtags

We've never seen primered pieces sitting outside there. They are either rusty or finish painted.

I did once. But it was only a day. Next day, the pieces were moved.

Was it a large quantity or just a few pieces? I always assumed they wen't straight from primer to paint with them.

But you know that Blitz coaster is going to be by Mack, right?  And they are going to plant B&M bushes but no Intamin coastal redwood trees.

How do we know that it will be Mack.

I would be fine with a Mack blitz or an Intamin blitz. If we get B&M giga in 2020 that makes our last 3 steel coasters all B&M. I don't have anything against B&M, but I would like to see them work with some other manufacturers eventually. Copperhead Strike is a good sign that will happen.
