Unfortunately the official drawing from city hall indicates the lift spine is inclined at 40 degress.

Me being a lover of aggressiveness like Maverick, I can only hope records aside this ride breaks my neck.

No way would KI design a coaster JUST short of 300 feet. I would bet the house on it.

It better be a 299ft maverick...

 

Or.. its 290ft tall but goes WAY underground for the ultimate tunnel... although as someone has pointed out earlier, a tunnel may increase wind turbulence therefore decreasing travel speed on the initial drop.

Definitely not a waste!  For those of us who can't get to the park to see what is going on, this is awesome!!

New ride aside for a moment, does this look like a FOF queue extension to yall?

 

Edit: or maybe more lockers?

Yes, see my quoted post below.

That looks like the outside queue that's under the awning or whatever it is. Am I looking at that right? Or is that the existing cattle zig-zags for where Firehawk was?

 EDIT: Just the old Firehawk queue.

Now that I'm looking at it, it looks like the old FH queue goes into the FoF queue in the blueprints. What the?

At least Firehawk's old queue is getting put to good use :)

Actually I think it's been suggested that FOF's outside queue will be removed and replaced with the FOF queue. Getting rid of the old outside queue would free up the path to Lil Giga. 

That was brought up pretty quickly. The plans are too detailed for a fake. If it's fake, it's an internal fake. 

I don't think they've been on. They deleted a lot of the stuff posted yesterday and made a statement. But as fast as this is moving, moderation is almost impossible. 

 

Yup that was me! :)

Has anyone considered the reason they left Firehawk's queue could be repurposed to be used for Flight of Fear's additional queue? I could see them removing the current overhang/queue lines to open the plaza area which would in turn, refresh that area a bit more.

Hmm the face says 50° though, what if it’s a 50° lift hill.

The face that the backbone mounts to is at 50deg, but the backbone is perpendicular to it (its complementary angle), which is at 40deg.

Anyone know when average time of year official announcements are made?

 

I remember few months ago someone saying if this is contributed to The Beasts timeline, we should expect announcement on 6-6-19 but if not... any particular month?

The biggest thing i am having an issue with, is if that layout is real, that means the plans for the footings for the rest of the coaster are complete and would likely be filed already. I remember that the MT layout had the ride broke into "areas of work" but they were clearly defined on the layout. If this was the case for this coaster, why would the "areas of work" not be marked on the layout. Something just doesn't feel right about this.

Isn't August basically Coaster Christmas in terms of announcements?

Banshee was August 8th, 2013

Mystic Timbers was July 28th, 2016

 

I imagine we will see an announcement around that time.

Here's an image that might help.

I know you guys tried to explain this earlier... it’s still confusing. I would think you would want all the weight and pressure pushing against that bolted side. It is labeled as a column is it not?

I pointed this out earlier today, which is probably 20 pages ago, lol. In my head i see the face that the backbone is bolting to set to 50 degrees, and assuming the base plate on the backbone is welded on square, when it is bolted to the face it would be perpendicular, therefore set to 50 degrees. Does anyone have any documentation that says the lift hill angle is always referenced off the angle opposite where the backbone bolts up?

Depends on your force distribution for your entire superstructure. The entire support structure is basically one big triangle, so as long as it's balanced appropriately, it'll work out. Hard to know without seeing the analysis the engineers did, which probably involved semi-complex FEA and stuff like that. I don't remember much of my engineering curriculum, but basically, it's a bunch of statics problem solving.

What I am saying is "it's fine"

It's trigonometry. Google complimentary angles. What you're saying is a very common way that people get confused

It's referenced from its angle to the ground. Therefore, 40°. The 50° is the angle of the backside of the plate, not the hill itself.

Isn’t is odd that there is absolutely no teasers whatsoever?  No posters on the fence, nothing.  I do expect this to change tomorrow?  

And I guess even though things don’t look to be shaping up as I had first hoped, I still have high hopes as KI has rarely disappointed, Ok the shed (which I love but that hype was out of this world lol).

The prints call the supports 'columns', and the backbone is considered a column. This design is similar to many other B&M lift designs.

So, will the Hershey coaster use that same backbone style? Cause here is that same piece at CSF.

As far as I can tell, that's the color the Hershey Hyper is supposed to be so I'm not thinking it could possibly be ours.

I know I said this like 30 pages ago, but since we do not know the source of the blueprints drawing we will not be hosting it on KIC. Please do not post it again. Thank you.

LOL. Yes, even though we're ALL talking about the blueprint drawing, and it's readily available at other sites mentioned...it is somehow banned from this site...because we don't know the source?  Mmmkay.  

(Sorry, YES I agree to the terms, no matter how ridiculous I may find them in 2019) :-)

Mods have probably been having a super rough time moderating this thread as is. I'd give them some slack.

Seeing a lot of new posters/accounts. Business is good!
