The Flat Ride Speculation Thread

Recommended Posts

Since it has been awhile since the park added any new flat rides it is probably only a matter of time before we start to see an additional flat added to the park.

What flat or flats would you like to see added?  Where would you put it in the park?

Let the speculation begin...

Mondial Top Scan... Absolutely love them... Bonus points if it's got something near by to give you that 'near miss' feeling when you're seated at the end of an arm...

If you don't mind a bit of wetness, a Mack Twist'n'Splash or Mack Interactive Boat Ride... Fun on a hot day, but won't absolutely drench you...

I'm not a fan on spinny or circular rides.  I'd like to see some Antique Cars.  I'd like to see a Skyride.  I'd like to see the train re-invigorated.  Those are just my personal preferences.  For others, I would like to see some thrilling rides, but I don't know enough about them to name them.  Oh, I would love to see Congo Falls relocated to Rivertown.

I would like to see a Trabant or Whipout return to the park, and the Skyride as well.  Keep updating International Street and add the floral style bushes along the fountain again.

I would love to see an S&S Screaming Swing similar to Skyhawk at Cedar Point but without all the downtime.

A Top Spin, not a Giant version, just a Top Spin, suspended version preferably.  

Set it behind the International Showplace, beside DB's brake run.  Theming should be easy enough, go to KD, take some pictures, copy the ride cycle and call it ..."The Crypt".

Does anyone else besides HUSS make Top Spins?

I'd also take an Enterprise style ride.  I really miss Skylab.

How about a regular topspin in the old Crypt building.

When KI gets new flats I'd love to see them take the guidance of Canada's Wonderland to inspire them in what the buy.

Otherwise, give me a Round Top-esque or Gravitron ride in Coney Mall and I'd be excited. Bonus points if we got both!

I’d love to see Kings Island find larger version of The Whip and completely refurbish it & install it in Coney Mall. The one at Camden Park is a blast & love to see Kings Island find one to bring to the park.

Sure, it just means you have to go 17 years between good coasters...

2014-2012 = 17 ????
2019-2014 = 17 ????
Is that some kind of common core math or something?

^ I couldn't agree more with you.

I'd love to have a S&S Screamin' Swing like Skyhawk at Cedar Point.

I think the flat should go in the Xbase. 

I think a large thrilling flat or two should go into an X-Base expansion (along with restrooms and maybe a food stand). But think some family flats could be good for Coney Mall/Oktoberfest.

Would like to see some classic style flats like a Tilt-a-Whirl, G2 Enterprise, or something else brought to Coney Mall (1 or 2 additions). Then a return of Der Spinning Keggers or similar ride to Oktoberfest. Maybe a secondary one too like a Bayern Curve return or alpine/Bavarian themed Musik Express.

For X-Base the main addition I want to see if a Screamin' Swing and think it would fit perfectly.

Other fun flat ride addition I think could be a Mack Twist N Splash over in Rivertown.

Ever since I rode the top scan at Carowinds, I have been in love with the model. It would be such a treat to squeeze one in possibly where flight commander used to be or where skylab used to be. Overall, a flat ride overhaul in Coney Mall would give a little bit of love to that classic area of the park

Mack has a ride called the Sea Storm that is similar to a musik express that could look nice.

Totally forgot about that one but had thought of it before. Think it would be great and would look better.
