From the blue prints that queue is going to be used for Flight of Fear.

Just seems like a lot to add to FoF que line. Why would they add all of it? Does it really need to be added? I hate seeing coasters with large areas of unused que like. haha

 

Also if I am seeing things right the blue prints for the current FoF que are wrong. Some of the que lines are going in the wrong direction. When you get to the lines to the right of the UFO  ( when facing UFO) they are wrong lol BLUE PRINTS ARE FAKE !!! haha ^_^

Firehawk’s queue will be tied to the Flight of Fear queue. You will enter the giga’s queue through the Firehawk photo booth. Why waste two perfectly good structures?

I am not saying waste them. I am saying why not use for new coaster and why does  FoF need anything more. Not waste, I am not sure where you got that?

My guess is that this new ride (like a lot of B&M's) is going to be a "people eater." Even in slow operation, it's going to move a linn relatively quickly. There may be a few weeks/months where temporary queues are needed ala Diamondback 2009, but just via proximity—Flight of Fear is probably going to see an uptick in interest/ridership. Unlike a reliable B&M ride with three trains that can each seat 32 riders, Flight of Fear's two small trains don't move people as quickly. It may need the additional space of Firehawk's queue for a season or two to handle crowds in that area. 

Like Dominion, KI should add a third train to FoF, but that was a losing battle years ago.

Looking at my own set of blueprints, the black dots on the lift are the egress lighting. Are the black dashes line lighting a la Fury? At first I thought it was the chain but this print shows electrical detail for the lift.

The lines are arrows linking them, stating that they’ll be sharing the same power source.

Sorry I'm late to the party today. I got a new phone finally! Anyways, according to the blueprints, it looks like there will be no gift shop at the exit. I wonder where they'll sell the merch for this coaster since there aren't really any gift shops nearby and with this coaster being this big, I'm sure they'll want to sell merch for it.

You realize they could build it on a platform right?  Doesn't have to be at ground level.

The question is why do that when you can find level ground. I do realize that. just seems like extra cost that is not needed. They really could just put in in front of the wall there.

Let's see how close your zoom can go. Are you able to read anything in the white wordings on these steel sheets from any of your pics?

 

I expect it'll say what thickness, grade of steel, where it's from, etc. Just curious what kind of information is on there. Thanks!

Also I see this has doors? circled in red. You can see its a door because its the same as the doors on the FoF que?

That'd be a mighty fine place to outflow the ride's opening weekend crowds IMO.
Could even wrap it to the south and have the line be close to the ride's helix before its final turn :p
Otherwise, plenty of space northwest. Probably wouldn't want people on the access roads though. Could end up looking like when Firehawk opened too :p

Maybe not as large as you might think. They could be planning to turn the inside of the Flight of Fear queue area into a haunt.

No, they could reroute the Flight of Fear queue not use the that section of the line. I believe Kings Domion did this.

I hope that is not planned. They ruined KD's FOF when they did that.

Yeah I would wanna say don't mess with that! The FoF que is one of my favs.

If there's one thing Paramount definitely had over CF, it's themeing. They had licenses to work with, of course, but the coasters definitely had better and more cohesive narratives than 'granny kicked up some moonshine and a bunch of convoluted nonsense has lead to the ride you're now experiencing, we paid twice as much for this as we did Maverick and it's half as good, here's a room with vaguely steampunk items - have fun!'

Those "doors" at the entrance are just gates in the que railing, That symbol does not mean door, it just means a directional opening. I can't seem to figure out what that area is though or a reason for gates in both lines to access it. The sign will probably be on the entrance building.

I will say that Maverick had the most theming at CP until Sv showed up. They are close to the same. If paramount would of built some bigger and better coasters with that theming it would been awesome! yet they add the ITL job haha Sorry for those that like ITL job. If you had the theming of FoF and Maverick was the coaster...…….WOW! mind blown lol

Steel Vengeance has themeing? Lol. I'd argue Maverick is still the better themed attraction given the queue, landscaping, rock formations and water features around the coaster. Or at least, those things make more of an impact than with Steel Vengeance regardless of the story they cooked up. Paramount showed you themeing in practice that you didn't have to watch a video online to decipher.

I would say Maverick has way more with the rock work, water canons and queue house.
