So Cedar Point can continue to add land mass if they so desire without knocking things down.

Never said they couldn't. Don't know why your trying to argue when you're making my point. CP has always been a peninsula and a finite amount of land. To expand they have to pay to expand the land mass by adding ground into the lake like you said they had to make land. Ki was purchased big and has room to grow for now with lots of usable space. 

I think this giga is a sign they definitely want ki and CP to stay on top. Which is great for commerce in Ohio. :)

I'm at the park and got the chance to talk to Don Helbig a little bit. He told me that the platforms that are blocked off will be where the media will be. He also recommends we get here early. 

What's early exactly? Was going to spend the day there but plans fell through and won't be able to make it until nearly 4 now. Please don't tell me I'm going to have to go straight back there..lol

I am not sure the addition of land at CP is by them pouring dirt into the lake. They really have not said there this said land is located in the park. So really it could be anything.

They can add land. The main driveway I believe is man made and wasnt there 150 years ago. But I do know adding land on water. Is CRAZY expensive. Very curious to see if they did get 4 acres how much that costed.

Good point. I am sure it would be so expensive nowadays. Plus it would take a couple seasons.

Not arguing, I thought you just missed that part of what I was saying. Didn't want people to think in 60yrs, Cedar Point would have, for example, the best of every ride possible in the park..  then something from outer space is shown and they have to get it first but they must choose which record coaster to tear down...

 

Imo only, if they wanted to REALLY expand, they could remove the water park completely off site and move it back on mainland and use island for just rides.

 

If they wanted to get physical, they could force everyone living there to LEAVE permanently and then they take over the eastern part of the island.

 

It's not far fetched.

Louisville International airport SDF bought residential land and forced MANY people to leave their homes and move elsewhere.

 

This was about 25 years ago. The land is still not being used today so you do not even need a reason to be acted on to buy out land from people and rezone it for all commercial use.

Maybe that's why CF is going less on our project due to the extreme cost of adding land to CP.

Less on our project??? Cedar Fair is spending quite a few million dollars installing this new addition. I cannot be more excited at the love they show our park. Not trying to sound condescending or rude at all. Just be thankful that we get the additions we do and will get in the future. KI seems such a better place since CF acquired them.

This is my first post on here. Thought I would ask because I’m currently in line for Flight of Fear and noticed all new TV’s inside the hanger area and they are playing a lot of different stuff on the loud speaker in the waiting are before you enter the hanger. Just curious if anyone thinks this is at all coincidental?

Very thankful they are doing lots for ki compared to others in their franchise/management.  

Maybe the coaster name will be AEWTWTOKI  that's what the posters spell chronologically anyways. LOLOL Arial Expansion With Tall Wide Track Overlooking Kings Island...

9hrs&10 mins to go!

Thanks Chris and welcome! Can you take a picture of one of the TV's?? Is anyone else at the park that can check this out too?

Gotcha Hawaiian....I think it's funny when others call it a budget giga....$20-$30 million is an awful big budget! Can't wait till tonight!

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.

There's everyone's SoB tie-in.  Lol

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.
