It’s like a plasticky cardboard. Not a nice material really. 

 

Edit: probably cheap to print on and reprint

That's why I'm wondering what these are made out of. A heavy cardboard type poster could be printed short notice, but not a metal sign 

Coroplast is cheap and relatively weather proof. They can either print right on it, or they have a vinyl printer and just have to stick it to the coroplast. Either way, once they have the design done, they can knock a new sign out in under 10 minutes.

"BMV, Synonymous with fun!" wrote their slogan for them.

Haha B&M&V lol That would be interesting to see those 2 companies work together. I will say I saw an update on a coaster Vekoma is working on for Phantasialand…………….wow if anyone get the chance check it out. Its a new style flying coaster where the seats can spin and sit parallel to the track sideways lol its odd but cool looking.  I think the coaster is called F.L.Y.

Is there a reason you can't just say what you think it means rather than winking?

Probably eluding that the original blueprints were a diversion. Disclaimer- I don’t support this theory.

Can we just step back for a second and look at how amazing these teasers actually look. They have a really cool futuristic and scientific aesthetic that fits really well with xbase and the presumed theme of the coaster. They are much better than the small signs we got for MT and Banshee as they were pretty generic imo. While I wish they would’ve had some small reading signs from the beginning (such as the “Watch for Falling Trees” sign), I’m glad they seem to be putting some effort forth on these.

Also, is there any way we could get these signs? If so I call dibs because, again, they look so awesome lol

I went to the Mystic Timbers announcement,  that was fun!  I hope this announcement is August 16th, that's the day I put in for having off just in case to be there.

Do we know what the AZ stands for?

AZ means 'Beginning and End',  like when Firehawk first opened at KI in 2007 -2018.

I am still having a hard time on why there is a poster for Firehawk. CP didn't post any torn down coasters did they? When they did this pre Valravn. I know newbie coaster is on old FH burial ground but still not sure why.

Firehawk's inclusion makes some sense to me at least because it's the ride this thing is replacing. It was a part of the "Project X" experiments and obviously served it's purpose so they're moving on to the next phase. The one I'm more curious about is Invertigo. Why that one? Assuming there are going to be more posters put up on the fence, ostensibly for other coasters, Invertigo seems like a really weird place to start. Is there some significance to that? Or is it simply because they both share the same manufacturer?

Ok that sounds much simpler than what I was thinking. I thought it might be something do to with azimuth.

I wonder when we will see the next set of posters? Tomorrow?

I'll be down there tomorrow. Definately going to be visiting X Base. Lol. 

 

Not sure if this has been covered before but with the teasers now posted it may me think.  Anyone else find it strange that Firehawk is still listed on the wait times on the KI app.  I honestly am now thinking this could have been a season long teaser.

 

Of course now that I go back to look at that part of the app (hadn't looked at it in about 2 weeks). Firehawk is not there.  Maybe it was an issue with my app not updating properly.  Who knows.

It will be interesting to see which coasters they put up next, so that this becomes more clear. They have plenty of coasters on hand to make signs for already, it would seem.

 

I've kind of had the thought in my head that the "test purpose" section of these posters might be relevant to Project X and it's elements. For instance, part of the Invertigo test is "Effects of extreme gravitational pull" which may be a reference to positive g's X will have in the helix. "Evasive maneuvering" on the Firehawk poster could be a reference to the several near-miss elements X will have. Both Test Purposes on each poster wouldn't apply, but if this theory is right, they would essentially be saying X is deriving elements from coasters which have been at KI at some point.

Finally got through to reading all this. I got so excited when I saw the posters! Can't wait to see them myself on Friday before Island Nights! I've been listening to hype music and I'm just so excited for this thing!

Also, I find it interesting that it says that 18% of specimens were at the latitude and longitude reference point on the Firehawk poster. Could this be a nod to its former life at Geauga lake (that for 18% of its life it was in another location)? This is so cool and oh my gosh I'm so hyped right now!!!! :D B)

EDIT: Also, I call dibs on a poster (right now, the Invertigo one but it is very early in the teasing phase; FOF, Banshee, or The Bat (1993)'s posters may look cooler)!

Something that i eluded to waaay earlier, but the posters changing mid morning is significant. Things aren't always as they appear. Hint hint. Prints. Wink wink. 

If that were true it would be the greatest fake out ever done to conceal the layout of a roller coaster.

I do wonder why we only have the first set of footer blueprints. I wish someone close would go to Mason city hall and ask for the additional prints that would need to be filed in order to build this. That would put the fake out theory to rest.
