It's not Millennium XL 300 or Leviathan 306, I think it's unlikely a number will be attached...especially since it's less than 325. Busch Gardens has announced that their announcement will take place on July 30th, maybe Kings Island will follow suit shortly.

Well you have to consider that that last 2 giga installments to the chain I305 and Fury325 both have #'s. So they are the most recent so its also possible that it does in my eyes.

Well look at Apple, for their next new iPhone 11( call it what you want) we know everything about that phone, no surprises about it. You can see for yourself but just like any big company( they release the new iPhones in September) they won’t move up the announcement date just because 1% of the guests that attend the park know exactly what’s getting announced. It would be cool but they are most likely set on a specific date.

Only problem is Leviathan opened after I305 and doesn’t have a number

You are right.  So we are 50/50 right now. If they go back and forth its a non number year.

Also..

@LucasAerelius I know this. I was just saying it sarcastically. haha

I don't really feel like scrolling through 234 pages of speculation, can someone caught up tell me if there is a good guess on when we might start seeing teasers on the park's social media and throughout the park?

Geeze n00bie haha j/k we think it will be sometime late July / early August. Then again we don't work at the park and really have no idea.

I think I305 was numbered mainly to differentiate from Intimidator at Carowinds which opened the same year. And Fury was numbered because it was an impressive number, lol.

I'd agree that teasers should show up by late July or so.

I think the general consensus is we should be looking for something shortly after Carnivale is finished.

This is how I see the whole “numbers” thing:

 

Millennium Force: No number and no need for a number. It was the first giga coaster and numbers were not really a thing yet. Millennium Force itself is a great name. Plus it implies a number (2000) because it’s the turn of the millennium to the year 2000 (obviously).

 

Intimidator 305: I don’t think it would have a number if intimidator at Carowinds did not have the same name. They needed a way to differentiate the two, and Intimidator 305 is more intimidating (no pun intended) than Intimidator 232. This number was necessary and kinda started numbering conventions.

 

Leviathan: A number would be kinda odd as this coaster is not taller than Millennium Force. It would be weird to attach a number for a coaster smaller than a current giga. Plus, unlike intimidator, Leviathan is a unique coaster name to Cedar Fair, and so a number was not needed.

 

Fury 325: Record breaker, worlds tallest giga, marketability. “325” really fits as it rolls off the tongue and gives more depth than the name “Fury” which is a bit of a short name for a mammoth coaster. Though to be fair, I really would love the name Fury even if that was it, but 325 fits well (btw it’s pronounced three-two-five, not Three Twenty Five. If you don’t believe me, listen to the audio on the lift)

 

KI giga: about the same as Leviathan. Unique name and not a record breaker. No need to put a number, even though it could fit. Plus, CF filed trademarks for both “Fury” and “Fury 325” and neither Orion or Polaris were trademarked with a number. They may file the trademark later with the number attacked so as to not spoil to height though, so take whatever you want out of that. Personally I don’t think there will be a number tho.

 

Edit: Kinda beat to it lol

Ok, so despite going through two years of Haunt pics and the pics I took during two behind-the-scenes tours of Firehawk last year, I’m coming up empty on any good pics of the side of that building. Apparently I only took pics once I was farther into the tour, and never got any pics of the front of Chaos. I think this red and grey may be it in the background, but it’s hard to tell for sure (pic I took with my friend when he was the front host at Board To Death) and it’s the closest I can find so far. BA828C37-D2A6-45FA-BFB6-79D3EE8A20E5.jpeg

I’ve pretty much convinced myself the blue and grey color scheme of that building IS a teaser, and is new this season. But! I would like to have more definitive proof.

Here is a photo I took with the building in it from September 30 of last year. The building was repainted to fit in with the new C.H.A.O.S. maze and its story.

at the old Firehawk entrance, I wonder if they are going to keep the sign that say “pilots enter here” since they are using the old queue for Flight of Fear and that could be come he new entrance

Entrance will be through Firehawk's ride photo booth. Both the entrance building and sign will be gone next year, at least based off the blueprints.

No he's talking about Flight of Fear. Imo that's coming down because according to the blueprints, that'll be where the giga photo booth is.

That looks photoshopped? haha Is this real?

And if it’s real, where is it? That looks awesome! Also, great pic of MF, @collin.klopfstein.

Finally, it would make me if that Valravn collision story is true. But even if I can’t ride it in July, I’ll still be admiring from afar (and there’s plenty of other stuff to do at The Point, too!)
