Decoding 2020

Recommended Posts

I prefer 4 across seating because it makes the line for the row your waiting for go a lot faster, which is good for the front row.

Is it possible they name the new coaster “Zodiac”? I saw multiple billboards with Zodiac while riding KMAA today. 

Seemed odd to me.

What’s odd is how slow the board is today compared to the last 3-4 days.  I guess now that we know which restraints everybody likes we’re all said apparently.

Zodiac was a ride on the spot of Kings Mills Antique Autos from 1975-1986.

The billboards, signs, license plates, and the new Kill Mart facade are just references to classic rides, both current and former, including Monster, Racer, Wild Animal Habitat, and of course, Zodiac.

Out of curiosity Has anyone tried aranging the posters by the size of the lettering? I have noticed that all of the letters that spell TEOTWAWKI are all different sizes.

“The end of the world as we know it” possibly a Meteor or Asteroid themed name?

Hopefully not a "nuclear holocaust" themed name. LOL

I don't think any park would want to theme something along the Holocaust. Also why I hate those Hitler parodies on YouTube. 

Was a joke. Obviously not a funny one. Ha!

If that's the base of the lift, the spine should be pointing down not outwards.

That is the base of the lift, but the bottom is to the left, not what you’re thinking on the right side...

I think it's more there hasn't been that much coming out the last couple of days, but it's hard to tell

Yeah for how much we got from the park for just over a week straight, we haven't really heard much in the past few days.

I was thinking, I know you had to put your email on the petition when you signed it. What if that was for when they got a certain number, they'll send an email to you telling you the announcement date and time!

Team 4 across for sure. Cars are shorter and can articulate tighter curves, and the shorter train length can help the ride feel that much more zippy.

I really hope I'm not working on the night of the announcement! I've gotten to attend both Banshee's and Mystic's announcements. Would hate to miss being right in the middle of the crowd and watching the reaction!

People are missing what may be the biggest advantage to 4-across seating: shorter trains, which means less walking for the ride ops, which translates to slightly faster loading.

Also, the 4-across trains can accommodate at least 9 rows (see Raging Bull) for a 12.5% increase in capacity over the more typical 8-row design. However, the blueprints reveal that there are only 8 rows in the station, which means that we almost certainly will only have 8 rows. Unlike the track layout, which is definitely 100% and without a doubt going to be exactly what is in the blueprints (sorry everyone, there will NOT be an inversion on this ride and the sooner you accept that, the less disappointed you'll be on opening day), I suppose the queue arrangement in the station COULD change as this would be a fairly minor tweak that could be filed for at quite literally the 11th hour. But realistically, that won't be changing either. There is a 99.999999999999999999999% chance that we will see 8 rows rather than 9 and a 100% chance that the layout will otherwise be exactly what we've already seen in the blueprints.

I messaged John Matarese today saying vertical construction should begin soon and showing him the screenshot from Reddit. Just waiting on a response.
