Can't remember now. How much of Mystic Timbers was done when they made the official announcement? Clearing and work over by WWC and what else? No footers right? When do you think we see the official announcement here?

August 13.

I agree the announcement probably be in August sometime, possibly on National Roller Coaster Day (which is Friday the 16th)

With the other 2 B&M giga's, did CW or Carowinds announce before or after they went vertical?

Granted, both of them had little to no clearing necessary.

Here's what will happen:

"Of course you're all looking forward to what next year has in store here at Kings Island, but right now we're focused on this season, and we're just really happy that guests are enjoying the improvements we've seen so far. With the addition of the all-new Kings Mills Antique Autos, as well as a fresh new look for International Street, we're just happy to have brought back some things for guests who have been visiting since day one, and there's even more fun to come for the remainder of the season including the all-new Grand Carnivale! Next question, please."

 

Since you don't like that question, how bout we talk about those fountain pedestals? ;-)

Fury started vertical after the announcement. August 21 announcement  to September 29 for the first support up.

Following these boards must make it like shooting fish in a barrel for local stations to find breaking Kings Island news...

Just driving clicks/traffic and being the first to report, that is all these news stations are about anymore.  I find little if any  actual 'news' in that article. 

It is sad that article made it beyond an editors desk.

Although those pink lines are the same length (height) on the computer, because it's closer to the camera, the lines won't produce accurate proportions of 301ft at a nearer spot. Just like here:

It's not perfect placement (my lines), but it's nowhere close to the difference being from my editing error.

300ft far away will, in a photo, appear much longer/ taller when it's closer to the camera.

Yes, I’m aware of how distance and perspective work. WindSeeker and the placement of the lift hill on my mock-up are in much closer proximity than WindSeeker and Diamondback are on your example. I took perspective into account when I created it. 

It doesn’t matter anyway. It’s a quickly done doodle, not a mathematically engineered rendering.

WCPO must be having a slow day. 

Nah. An article that you guys essentially wrote for him that guarantees clicks? Seems like he has it down to a system.

Oh god. I just read that WCPO article. I cannot believe they put that mockup on there. I wonder how many people will think thats official art regardless what the story says.

With how much I still see people freaking out over The Beast unleashed video I'm going to say about 90% of the GP

Way too many, judging by how many people asked me about "steel beast" while I was working WF.

I can’t tell you how many random people told me they thought The Beast Unleashed video was real in normal conversation. Often people see these things and they have no real reason not to believe them... nor do they care that much.

I've had people get mad and tell me I'm wrong and that Kings Island announced it last year when they announced KMAA

I can't tell you the number of times I've seen comments or even people sending me stuff about Beast Unleashed. People are still sharing it. Or even the whole SOB 2.0 thing from last year. Some people just ignore the words rumors or concept. Or just don't read the description in general.

John Matarese is apparently a big Kings Island/Coaster enthusiast. He’s always posting “news” articles about the park.

I wouldn’t be surprised if one of you was actually John Matarese!

Too bad that @thoe124 and I didnt get credit for it. But, maybe that's not a bad thing. :ph34r:

@ohiocoasterfan That is definitely not me. Lol

 

IDK, you are frequently telling people to not waste their money....

I'm honestly surprised they used my doodle that took me less than 20 minutes! 

Also, I tweeted John Matarese about crediting me in the article.

Just enjoy seeing this thread and cannot wait till the Q&A session at Coasterstock for someone to have the guts to ask what is going on

 

Who said they were going to take questions? I thought the itinerary said guest speakers. not Q&A? 

Asking for a friend.
