Decoding 2020

Food for thought.  What about a BM retrack of Vortex.  Same layout just smoother.  What about a RMC conversion of Adventure Express? 

As much as I love the idea, I don’t how well that would really translate over. The existing support structure probably wouldn’t be able to be used for B&M’s track, and the overall design is just simply different. They’d basically have to build the ride from the ground up, and at that point you might as well spend the money on a new coaster and not rebuilding a smoother copy of something that is already there. However Vortex still runs well, and devours people, and I see no reason that it will be replaced in the near future barring anything major breaking on the ride.

I agree.  It would have to be from the ground up.  Those supports couldn’t support a modern track.  But let’s be honest it’s a classic design and current Vortex is rough.  I’d like a modern take on that ride. 

As for RMC racer and beast will never get changed.  So with said I think Adventure Express could be a coaster that’s revamped and expanded.  I know it’s a beginner fav and classic mine train but think of he fun and it would’ve be a ground up coaster.

just my 2 cents on a decoding thread.  Super excited for the giga.  Those upset need to get a life.  Polaris will rock

I know, I know, this anticipated POV, video can’t come soon enough but to wet your appetite further, here is the Giga Prediction from no limits photoshopped on the land clearing!

WOW. That second drop looks AMAZING. That turn around is sick. I cannot wait to see the POV. This coaster is going to rock.

Personally, I hope they get a wild mouse and/or a nice mid-height range coaster.  Something that the 44" or 46" crowd can ride, but is still fun for the 48" and above crowd.  That segment of KI has been neglected since FAAC was built (2001).  Something that feels like a set up from Woodstock Express, but doesn't require the height of The Racers, Beast, Vortex, etc.. (or something that someone too afraid for those rides can jump on).

A Gravity Group family woodie would be perfect for this. Thrilling for enthusiasts but with a very low (36" I believe) height requirement so the little ones can ride too. Every park should replace their family PTC with one of these.

That looks to be the shell for a shelter / storage  space like the pictures just way bigger.

Yup, the first three elements are strong and will be intense, and if the speed hill has a tight apex like that, it will probably be the strongest ejector airtime hill B&M has ever created. After that, the next three elements look alright and hopefully it's taken at a fast clip. This ride also takes the record away from Leviathan for longest breakrun too :p

Thanks for posting this! Both pairs of my cargo shorts have messed up zippers, and I really need to get new ones. I feel like cargo shorts should be placed in a prominent place on the site as a lot of us use them. Could this be in a central place, @IndyGuy4KI or can there at least be a new thread made?

My pilot/friends mother passed away approximately a month ago, and plane is currently in for its annual inspection. Soon as that is done and wx cooperates, I'm sure we will go up. 
I do plan to see if we can fly over CSF, as well as KI. I do, however, want to fly over Dayton to see some of the storm damage from a couple days ago. 
What type plane is it? Not sure if you mentioned it previously.

I dig it, first overbank is a little slower than I thought, same with the turnaround but it still looks fun. The high point of the ride is the speed hill and cammelback and if they are as fast as they are in this POV, then it would provide the strongest airtime on a B&M hyper/Giga model. The overbaked helix and the overbanked turn look alright and then that's it. I also find the apex of the last hill into the breakrun looks a little too steep. In the end, I still think that Levi and Fury will be better but this is a strong ride regardless and noone should complain about it.

The video looks very interesting, thanks for doing that!

It looks like a pretty fun ride. It will be interesting to experience the first banked turn. It looks like there's about 2 seconds of sideways air time there which should be thrilling from that height (I think I saw that it crested at 180 feet?) and speed. The turn around is also going to be interesting to see how it feels, and the section right after the turn around looks fantastic. Also how will the airtime of the final camelback transition into the positive G's of the helix? Post helix looks pretty tame. Love that it's going to be in amongst the trees rather than out in the open. I'm still wondering if there will be another small surprise added in that we haven't seen from the plans.

I think this will be everyone's favorite ride in the park for a long time.

I don’t think there will be any surprises. Plans are plans
