Whatever B&M shipped to Kings Island was unloaded from the container this morning.

My bet on this is at least a couple of cars. I’m guessing it’s not a full train, just enough for a piece of rail and the announcement to look good.

Today is the day that we could REALLY use some aerial photos.  I'm guessing that trailer with track on it is sitting out of view of any vantage point in the park.

Be happy with this coaster! This is the year of the waterpark expansion for almost every other park haha. Ki is getting the only coaster in the chain. Unless Knott's or CP surprises us but I don't see that happening.

I was there yesterday and noticed that the audio and videos were different than i remembered for FoF as well, I just thought maybe they were finally updating after using the same ones for so long or that I was just crazy lol but now that @Chriss84 has mentioned the same thing I think they might be on to something.

Ok wait, that's really interesting. In what way is it different? I haven't been on it in like a month or so.

So they move the track my tail car? Thought they would transport by 18wheeler the whole way from Batavia?

Right, wish I had that kinda budget.  Lol

 

On another note, just noticed something I guess I never thought of untill this teaser campaign.  Just seen @sixohdieselragetwitter post with an arial photo of SoB.  Is it just me or does the helix kinda resemble an impact crater.

Uh...that’s The Beast...:lol:

You are right. I think in the containers by rail is other things being sent from B&M. Its not track. It could be trains or parts or electrical parts and t he chain for lift hill.

Don't the trains come mid winter usually and have a big reveal?

What components of the ride are actually made by B&M overseas? I had always thought it was just the trains, but what about the gearbox for the lift motor? If they do make that, it would make much more sense to arrive now versus the trains.

I am pretty sure everything but the track itself is made at B&M and sent here. I am sure its not the trains yet. It could be and KI is just going to hide them. My guess is its all the gear boxes, chain, electrical items and the computer system. The brakes and all of the above.

The more interesting part to me was the stuff in the outside cue line. Something about weather reports and a radio station. Which I have NEVER heard and I’ve Been riding that ride since the day it opened.

After having gone to Mystic Timbers announcement and seeing how many showed up for that I’m kind of glad I can’t make it. That area is going to be so crowded and if you want to have a spot you’re going to have to be there early.

Unless they stage it behind the fence behind the gate area and then open the gate maybe? Then those in the back get the lucky front spot :) either way exciting.

Looks like festival seating for this event...first come first serve. Might have to camp out for the evening. The Banshee event filled Action Zone.

Cedar Point is bringing back the paddle boat ride in 2020.

And this is what Knott’s Berry Farm is doing for 2020.

As @Enchanted Voyage Lover stated, that is The Beast's helix. 

 

Also, side note... that picture is back from early January.

$20-$30 million is an awful big budget! Can't wait till tonight!

^This. A special day like this it really makes me grateful for what we've gotten in a relatively short window of time. In my youth (old man alert), we had the Cobra, The Beast, The Vortex and the The Racer. That was it. The park then endured 2 decades of limited additions before we got DB 10 years ago. Over the past decade we've seen three heady coasters go up and tonight we'll officially be getting a 4th. Not many in the nation can just roll up to a park of this caliber for some after work rides like we do.

I thought I read somewhere that Dorney Park also has an announcement today? Could be wrong though.

Have been following this thread since the beginning as well as the speculation threads before it.

Wanted to jump in with my first post and say that this is such an exciting time to be a fan of the park. Can't wait to see this thing go vertical and track the progress as it changes the skyline forever. Heading out to the park later for the big announcement and looking forward to a fun night with fellow enthusiasts. Enjoy this!
