Speaking of X-Base, what do you think about the legitimacy of adding a second path along the Blue Racer side?

That is a maintenance road.  It appears there will be something there for Haunt, but I doubt they'd want to remove that access year round.

It has been gone since opening day. Which is also why opening day when the half loop was spotted, it was mentioned that they could use that to make an arch with.

The half loop was spotted, and shared here in mid March. Not that it makes any difference. :P

Anyone at the park see any other work being done besides the little plot next to Racer? 

Yesterday there was absolutely no one on site that could be seen. This implies that this particular “phase” is done and another crew is coming in sometime.

The building behind Racer strikes me as a new Haunt building.  There is the possibility that they are moving one of those maintenance buildings there but it seems kind of small for that.

Would anyone be kind enough to point out which haunts are affected by this construction please? I have never been to haunt and only know about the one next to The Beast's station and the one in the crypt building.  Im looking at haunt maps on Google, but park maps aren't very accurate. Thanks!

Yukon Striker is the same height as Valravn but it has a longer drop. 

I think KI could land the "longest drop" title if the ravine is about 15ft+ deep

No I know they can be different. I didn't know that anyone would rather have a taller hill than a taller drop in a coaster. That's what I was saying.

Just now, FUN&ONLY! said:

Here’s an idea: they can auction off the old Firehawk track to afford a few extra pieces of B&M track to make the giga longer!

 

I am just kidding... they will probably get creative with it like CodyFryGuy said...

They wouldn't do that as the new coaster would just so happen to break down right there on the reused track... knowing this, they'd use that part of the track just for the station, lol.

I can see Firehawk’s trains refusing to flip back up in the station right now...

Edit: Good news! Maintenance is on their way...

Let's just break all the records....

How about a giga coaster with a hyper loop and a launch up a strata Shambala curve!

Beat those records... anybody, lol.

Everyone else might as well stop making coasters for 10yrs if that happens 

 

Since they are building all new ride and area.. I want to see FREESTYLE drink stations IN THE WAITING LINE! self service only stations with day or annual drink passes only.

Howdy all, I thought I'd throw my hat in the ring with a lovely MS Paint approximation of how the leaked layout would fill the land cleared. The thing that strikes me as strange about this is the lift's position nearly parallel with Diamondback, which I didn't fully realize before this crude creation. In all other parks with coasters of similar size, the two lifts are oriented different directions...and I think for good reason (i.e. to distinguish between the 2 coasters, especially if they're both B&Ms). Time will tell...

Notice also that many lifthills are in the same direction as this. Idk if there’s any reason but it’s strange once you notice it.

 

Edit: Also notice we’ve looped back on stuff we’ve talked about once again. Did KI hire people to keep looping us in this wormhole as a crazy meta teasing campaign? I guess we’ll never know...

Yeah PX, Diamondback, Beast, Banshee, Racer, Invertigo lifts are all in that same general direction.

Hate to break it to you but Invertigo is about perpendicular to that direction. But Adventure Express has one lift in that direction. SoB also had it in that general direction, as does MT

While this sounds great, I can see this idea being abused. How will they enforce the “drink plans only” nature of the drink stations?

^^That is true. Some people will just use it without a drink plan. The only way it would work is if they have a staff member there monitoring it, but I honestly think KI dropped the food/drink machine in the queue thing after Diamondback since WindSeeker, Banshee, MT, and KMAA don't have vending machines in the queue.

They should just have a bartender in the queue.

I bet half of the KI employees who talk about what is coming in 2020 with park guests do not even know what a giga coaster is...

One employee on the top of the Eiffel Tower was saying IT IS going to be a giga and IT WILL be here next year. 

That employee wasn't Mike Koontz.

Seasonal employees are fanboys/enthusiasts like we are. They know about as much as we do.
