I love this color scheme. (The red and black is also cool and would be my #2 pick)

DustinTheNow, I think you have come up with better color schemes than the park will end up giving us!

I especially like the dark blue and light blue colored track and the black and red colored track... keep up the good work!

Looks similar to one of these fabric-lined structures. On the closest-left of that concrete pad, there are some electric runs coming out of the ground, which tells me this is more than just a simple storage structure. 

 

Craftsman electric trenched from an area near Adventure Express to put those conduit runs in.  Their excavator is still just out of frame.

The electric is odd. Theres 7 smaller conduits coming up, and no obvious spots that they come back up. If they were just supplying electric from somewhere else, there'd likely just be one conduit coming up. Regardless what the purpose of the building, it was going to have electric for lights. These multiple conduits are odd though, unless they are coming up elsewhere on the pad and they just can't be seen in the pic. 

Stranger is how they have indentations at the ends of the concrete pad. Looks like 4 on each end and they likely line up. That suggests the building has a specific purpose beyond just storage.

For some reason, these structures scream X-Base to me, and because it looks as if they would fit in with the theme, I am thinking the building is more than just storage. Why would they build something that looks like that just to store some things in?

I am thinking that building will be used for haunt.

I could see that too, and I would like how it would fit into the area, unlike most haunts!

Could it be a new off-season maintenance shed for AE? Looks like AE's transfer track (where I believe they add and remove trains, yellow below) is awfully close to this new concrete pad (estimated red below).

Maybe @pkiridesmaint could give us insight on wether that’d be necessary? I don’t think they’d build an entire building for just one ride.

Might be for The Racer too and other surrounding rides.

The pad is actually SW of your square. Compare the curve in that road in the latest pic. But I have doubts about it being a maintenance building. They do a lot of that stuff offseason, and those tent type buildings aren't really that easy to heat. I'm leaning more towards storage or something to do with the carnivale.

I really like @ethancoaster‘s rendering mostly because the elements on them return trip looks way better/cooler than other recreations I’ve seen thus far.

Also, I got to see the clearing from WindSeeker today and it looks like it may have grown so now it passes beside the fireworks launch pad and goes back further. Also, even though this new coaster seems like it will be close to The Beast, I don’t see it affecting night rides too much (IMO). However, the finished product could be a different story and the new coaster would leave The Beast less secluded.

I haven’t worked in the park since the paramount days however I’m considering a return. My guess is that it’s going to be a storage facility for grand carnivale. The curved supports posted yesterday are more than likely going to that pad, they look a lot like supports for tension fabric structures like this...

Shouldn’t there be plans or something that would be filed with the city for this?

I doubt it if it’s considered temporary, they’ll probably take the tent down after use and keep the pad for future use

How dare you post! Just kidding, you're fine.  I really like the dark blue with the light blue. The biggest star in Orion is those two colors, so I can totally see that. I'd think they would go white supports. Maybe even stick with light blue.

What is the point of this thread anymore? Someone already created a thread called “Decoded 2020,” so why are people still trying to decode Project X?

Edit: Looks like the thread was taken down. It must have had too many juicy details on Project X!

 

I am joking...

You've cracked this decoding thread wide open... the coaster is actually themed to a chicken that joined the airforce but was too scared of heights... hence not making it to 300 feet

I've said it before in this thread, but the new pad by Racer I can almost best that it'll be for storage of Grand Carnivale floats...they've got to be stored somewhere.

If it is for storage, wouldn’t you think that they would keep it up year-round. Where are they going to put the floats when the tent is taken down?

I’m thinking this festival will be rotated throughout the entire chain, I would not be surprised if next year we get the monster trucks and Cedar Point (Or some other park) get’s Grand Carnival
