I know we’ve been saying it for a while now, but I really do think teasing will start within a week. It makes sense to wait until Grand Carnivale starts so as to not take away from it, but I don’t think they’ll wait all the way until it’s finished as, going off when announcements have been done in years past, that would give them only about a month of teasing before the announcement. Who knows, maybe that’s what they have planned. Maybe they won’t tease at all. Imo that would be very strange given the scale of this project, but if not teasing causes more hype, so be it.

Plus, if their intent was to have people spread rumors about a giga before teasing starts, mission accomplished. Most everyone, including a lot of the GP, know something big is coming, most likely a 300’ y’all coaster. However, with no really big recent developments (For the point of argument, im saying the hype around track color has died down), I think some teasing should be in order to keep people excited.

Just my two cents on the matter.

If I remember correctly, Carowinds didn't start the teasing for Copperhead Strike until the end of June.

The teasing for Diamondback didn’t start until July 4, and that construction was in the middle of the park!

^True. I always forget about DB. I just think about Banshee and MT, which (I believe) both started on the first day of the season. If not, they were very near the beginning.

To me it’s just strange that there’s been next to nothing in terms of teasing.

I'm excited to have a quonset hut in the queue line. Looking at these pictures, I think they could put some theming or something in there and make it cool.

Seeing your images made me wonder how large the quonset hut will be. Adjusting the overhead electrical plans to proper scale to match where the foundation plans have the footings, the quonset hut is right at 30'x40', which appears to be a fairly standard size for huts after a quick search. Not quite as large as the ones you have imaged, but still cool!

After all, the quonset will only hold 3 main queue rows according to below, with perhaps some decor between the two sets, so it won't be a huge hut. I'm sure it'll be cool nonetheless.

The electrical plans show an extensive light package will be underneath all high points of the coaster. Not sure how that'll compare to what Fury has, but I'm sure it'll look quite good. Page 0-E7.4 with keynotes ES30 and ES34 of the electrical plans detail this. I detailed this many, many posts ago if you feel like digging thru old posts. Use the keynotes to find where they're located along the track's path.

There are several comments on YouTube who thinks these blueprints are fake. I myself think there is too much detail and stuff on these plans just to fake it. Plus I doubt they would send fake blueprints to the city hall just to troll a few enthusiasts. Anyone else think this too?

From a marketing standpoint, I would expect teasing to start after July 7th. I believe that's the final night of Gold Season pass sales. I would expect the teasing to start right after that date. I could see them getting a early jump on Gold passes for next year at that point. Again, I don't have any inside info, but being in marketing, this is what I'd do.

This is off topic but way back someone made an rmc model of The Beast. Can someone do that for SOB? I can’t atop wondering how epic that could have been 


There have been quite a few made. Just look up “RMC Son of Beast” and have fun watching.

The whole debbie downer thing is just getting a bit old IMO. Not really that big a deal I know.


What exactly would you like us to be discussing just so we know?

I'm just stating that in my opinion, people complaining about the new coaster is getting old. You don't have to agree. You can give your opinions, I can give mine.

Your right, at least we are gettin something new. Had a lot of people do the same for Mystic Timbers and it turned out pretty good I’d say.

How can anybody be disappointed in a giga? SMH

I think most of us are excited to ride it. Yes, it was disappointing to see the layout. KI is a great family park with a great collection of coasters. However, it's just not a world class type of coaster park. They had the land to go bigger and longer than are going. But, we're still thankful and excited for what we're getting.

I wonder if any high level exec's are on this blog watching us all devour any piece of info that we can find about this like the rabid dogs we are :D. No but seriously do you think anyone notable that knows the plans is keeping an eye on us?

 Well I mean @DonHelbig is on KIC frequently enough that there's no doubt in my mind other folks that he works with and for have probably seen and heard of the KIC discussions.

While I am excited we are getting something new, and I'm excited that that something new is a Giga, I absolutely have the right to be somewhat disappointed or let down that it's not going to be as big or as tall or as fast as Fury. I'm sure most here, while also excited for this, are on some level a bit disappointed.
