Decoding 2020

Recommended Posts

The clearing now extends all the way back next to The Beasts mid course break shed and into the ravine under its second drop.  Whatever it is going to be.... it’s huge

I have serious doubts that the project will resemble The Beast Unleashed video I made in either theming or layout, but if it does I will absolutely lose my mind.

Went on Blue racers, they’re still clearing trees as we speak. Definitely going to be a fun project. I’m sure this has already been mentioned but there are markers in X - Base

I didn’t think you were serious.... but there is literally several excavators at work right this minute. Field of Screams is so exposed.

I’m currently at the park - 7:30 - just rode north Racer and, yes, there are still workers clearing trees at this minute.  The cleared area has really grown since last weekends pics showed.

Just wondering, but with the rate of clearing at the moment, how much longer would it be before we started seeing footers and (potentially) track?

I just left ki. After seeing the new clearing that was done this week and the fact that they were clearing while the park was open today (which i did not see, but heard it was happening) i truly believe this coaster is going to be a monster. I think they will clear much more land. Im thinking this coaster will break records. Whether its a giga, or wing. I dont think it will be a dive machine or one of their flyers.  This plot of land doesnt seem like the right type of layout for those.

Eiffel Tower reopened and I went to top.  Hard to see from up there all the new clearing they’ve done - especially that out near Beast.  FYI, there’s clearing behind The Racer Turnarounds and Action Theater.

Just got off Beast.... can confirm the clearing extends to the brake shed. Maybe ~80 feet out from the left side of it.

Footers around the station should be soon. Track won't show up on site until after the ride is announced. So probably August.

I'm convinced it's finally giga time :)

I'm assuming this will mean this is another ride that will have to close during the fireworks then haha.
I wonder if they'd ever consider moving that to another plot.

Either way, I'm excited for 2020 now. All there's to do for now is enjoy 2019 c:

I can’t be the only one that’s somewhat salty they finally opened wind seeker when it got dark. Can’t see anything to besides them still working.

My guess is they’re making up for down time earlier today and yesterday from the rain and don’t want to work over the weekend.

Wish there was a heart emoji for messages like this. I’d much rather have a new theme then just a 3rd ride themed to a Beast. Not to mention that the marketing department  would never EVER want a ride themed to probably one of the biggest failures in regional theme park history.

I'd like to add that to the wish list on a giga for me- 

- no red anywhere in the color scheme

- no numbers in the name

- no Beast lineage

I called all this new clearing way back when:) A monster out and back giga through the woods? The same woods where the legendary Beast night rides take place? Sign me up!

Just caught up on the thread; Based on the amazing news of land clearing, I think I'll be spending some quality time up on the Eiffel Tower tomorrow...

I mean not to shoot you’re claim down but I’m going to. A coaster tall enough to be a giga would have to be long enough to go through the woods that boarder the park so yes it’s going to run through there. And I’m shocked to see how close to see the clearing is to The Beast, I think we all saw it going more towards the sob area that farther back. And i hate to disagree again, and I mean be in the minority here, but danget I’d lose my mind over another beast spinoff. I mean we had a special thing with a coaster sequel, why not keep it going. You can’t argue the gp would love that

I didn't claim anything. That's why there's a question mark after my statement. What are you implying? Another wood coaster? Another SOB?

Using google measurements and taking it from the end of Firehawk, through the clearing, and halfway on Beasts brake run gets you .36 miles. Fury 325 is a total of .46 miles with the same measuring. We are a tenth of a way of cleared land from fitting a monster Giga in there!

Sorry I should have explained I was referring to the guy who made The Beast unleashed video and commented above. Also sorry I hope you know my response was kidding and being a smart butt, all good funny hear buddy not actually trying to be negative

It's all good, but it sounded like you don't think a giga will fit in this space. Plenty of room here.
