agree 100% with both yall post. some these people in here are straight rude. what is so bad in your life where you gotta be rude on a coaster forum LOL. 

OT: hoping to make it down on thursday. :lol: 

Exactly! asking credit for a screenshot from another news outlet is a little much. Some ppl think they are the CNN of coasters though, I don't get it. I'm just ready for the announcement so this bickering on here can come to a crawl. People arguing of senseless stuff when we can be talking about the station/queue setup, or if they are gonna go all out and make it a new "plaza" type area. I don't see them putting in just the coaster without some renovations in that area. Its hard to believe, cause Carowinds went all out from what I seen with Copperhead Strike. Some of you seriously need to chill though. I've been on other coaster forums and they are literally laughing at KI and the "fanboys" over this. It's been going on for years with all this "demanding" for a giga and now that it's finally happening most people seem unhappy or are being plain rude to others. I'll be glad when this is over lol and no matter how this ride is you all will be at the park next year. Wait for the announcement and be happy with what your getting whether it's a 296ft lift or a 3xxft lift. :mellow:

If you guys think about it the drop wont be that much smaller than Fury's. Yes 24 foot difference does seem like a lot but in all honesty you really wont notice a difference.

Fall out of a 2 story building and see if you notice a difference....lol

I mean most people at this point really don’t care about the height as much (It’ll still be somewhat disappointing it’s not 300 ft’ tall) I think most people’s main concern with this ride is how short it is. Yes you won’t notice it’s 25 ft smaller then Fury but what you will notice is how it’s 1,200 ft shorter then Fury 325.

interesting that i get bashed multiple times, after the rules of the "friendly" forum get posted, for stating that the common way for giga is height and admitting that the other people that brought exceptions are right without me knowing. oh well

we'll see what the coaster looks like on thursday. i hope it has a height of more than 296' so that the park doesn't get crap about it not being the shortest of the giga class

Shortest Giga, or Tallest Hyper. I'm a glass half full kind of guy.  lol

So after thinking for the last 3 days that we didn't get any photos from the tower of the construction site as I thought the battery went dead on the camera, I went down the tower before my wife could tell me she brought an extra battery, and just telling me tonight she got photos, I'm going to post what she shot on Saturday.  Wasn't much going on, but on some she could get pretty close... Also adding DB splashdown from the tower lol

No. You dont get it, do you? Stop sending screenshots of you sending messages to him. NO ONE cares. Just say you did. This thread has enough spam.

That's kind of what I am starting to think.  Maybe the height people are concerned about is merely above ground, and the first drop goes 10-20 feet below ground (or more) and we end up with a 300+ foot drop.

There's not a tunnel. We have blueprints. Theres no tunnel. We have pictures of the site. They aren't digging a tunnel and they have footers matching the blueprints where a tunnel would have to go. Even if they were going to do some mythical fake blueprints, they would have had to already dug the tunnel and poured it to have time to get everything done in the right order. We have a 300+ foot drop already, so be happy with that.

Nope I didn't. John Matarese already has a report out today on CSF. I'm going to try and slow down on messaging him because it seems like you guys don't like me doing it. I don't want to bother him too much. In fact, I try to wait for him to respond before I message him.

We get it you’ve stated your point and you’re almost 100% right, but the announcement is in three days let people have fun imagining what they want while the can. There’s no use in you getting ****ed and constantly correcting people. It’s all good, and just as you’ve said “be happy with that” I can tell you the same, be happy with people having their dreams about this coaster. We only have 3 days left to speculate and dream then will know for sure what the potentially biggest and most expensive addition we’ll ever have actually is.

Thanks @IndyGuy4KI for all you do! This is a fun place.

Anyways, John Matarese just responded to me. It turns out WCPO was originally supposed to do it, but they had Breaking News to report on so they couldn't go.

Can't believe people can just drive right onto the property with no security. Must be the same security co. that was working at the Jeffrey Epstein prison. Ha!

It's a small metal shop in rural ohio. It's not a hotbed of crime and the things they set outside aren't getting stolen. Most comparable factories have the same setup.

They do some of the most costly coasters out there. A tall fence with locking gate is in the budget.

B&M gets most of that money. They are getting paid the going rate for metal fab. They don't design the pieces. No one is backing their F150 onto the lot and loading up a piece of track. They aren't putting up a fence to keep teens from taking pictures.

Wow, lots to catch up on here since the new teasers got out!

First, the teasers look interesting… maybe the whole crater thing is saying that the drop will be longer than the lift height is tall. Also, I’m thinking this will be a heck of a night ride! Second re: the whole “there’s more to this…” talk going on, even though it would be insanely awesome if there is something they are not telling us and this ride blows us all away with something unexpected (like the first time I saw the Storm Runner POV as a kid or when Steel Vengeance was announced) I’m keeping an open mind and waiting for Thursday. Also, Polorion actually sounds like a really cool name. And why would anyone want one of those unibrow disguises? Third, speaking of Y2K, I plan on wearing my “Y2K Survivor” shirt  on Thursday in honor of the announcement. Fourth, @Jallie79 your comment makes me think of how IGN rated ORAS (Pokemon game) when it game out…  8/10 for having too much water! :lol:

Finally, let’s just enjoy the ride- we’ve got three more days until the announcement and then National Roller Coaster Day is the very next day! It’s like a mini-holiday weekend [insert Kermit yay meme]

I've always heard in the past that Kings Island had height restrictions because of air traffic. Maybe they are going 301' and taking the drop underground? That would be pretty cool imo, also to people saying that Kings Island is more of a family park vs Cedar Point being the more intense thrill park are right to a point. Buuut maybe Cedar Fair is going to start the transition to build more thrilling rides at Kings Island, my reasoning for this is that Cedar Point is what like 99% developed already? No where to go without taking something out/integrating a coaster within all the other rides and attractions there. Kings Island has sooo much more land to use and is also closer to more major metropolitan areas that I could see that being a gradual transition for them. Not saying they are going to take all the steam from CP but would make sense to build the park up to have the best of both worlds and get people to include both parks on their thrill seeking journey. Just my opinion.

What strikes me odd about this whole teasing campaign is the lack of one old ride; Halley’s Comet. I’m not saying that will be the name by any means, but it’s very interesting how we are having a cataclysmic theme and they haven’t mentioned anything about a ride that could potentially be a dead give away.
