I think what they’re teasing is something going into SoB’s old station. Seriously doubt it will be an RMC for reasons Joe mentioned. I think a Giga would be far more likely.
To concur with @Freak and @Joe, I highly doubt that SoB is getting ressurected..that said.
I also think, like Freak; that SoB's station will be used for a Giga with it slightly based on Son of Beast's legacy
Some of the other teasers make no sense when it comes to a giga.
Also, no way that CF stops working with RMC hybrids. I don't get that argument. Steel Vengance is thought to be one of the best coasters to come out in a decade, and got a ton of media publicity. Twisted Timbers is loved by Kings Dominion guests. A couple of issues aren't going to stop the partnership.
But CP had lower attendance number s than last year. That’s big issue. I think SV’s issues had something to do with that.
Everyone has had lower attendance numbers this year. I doubt SV has anything to do with it.
Steel Vengeance's late opening definitely hurt CP's numbers. And the issues didn't help. Steal Vengeance is also shooting to the top of the Greatest Coaster ever made lists. Yes, RMC had some issues this year. They took on too many projects for one year and they almost pulled it off. But I bet they learned something in the process. All major high tech coasters have issues right out of the gate. I doubt CF stops working with them because of the issues this year.
Now, the local news is running with "5 Is Alive". It could be for a giga but it could be nothing. At the SoB memorial by Banshee, there is a small stack of lumber. Personally, Cedar Fair cracks me up because they play mind games with the coaster fanatics. I could see them (and I think that they have done so) putting flags around areas just to cause coaster people to freak out that flags are marking out an area. Or paint "x" on certain trees (watercolor only).
Couple? SV is still not operating three trains. TT has a basic design flaw with the break run. The rides have been having massive issues with reliability.
I love both of those rides, they’re also a pain in the ass and not cheap. CP has put in a lot of additional time and money into those rides, which is why I’m more pessimistic they’ll add more.
Also, Giga is a very reliable rumor I’ve heard for a while now. So take that for what it’s worth.
Wait what? I was there and Steel Vengeance opened with the park.
I really don’t see KI adding a giga any time soon. It would be too similar to Diamondback, no matter what layout it has.
Sorry, my bad. I got RMCs projects confused. It was Wonder Woman that opened late.
I'm a bit out of the loop; what's the issue with TT's break run?
TT was the one with the flying cell phone this summer, right?
I mean, Intimidator and Fury 325....
Fury has a twister layout, while Intimidator has a airtime-focused layout. Diamondback is a mixture of both.
Oh come on dude. The park needs something like a Giga, and a good one not I305.
I’ve heard I305 is great and the park doesn’t need a giga, imo. A wing coaster, a dive coaster, an RMC, or a Gerstlauer Infinity coaster would be better than a giga in KI. Don’t get me wrong, giga’s are great, but KI doesn’t need one.
Leviathan/Behemoth at CW, too.
My thoughts are that Kings Island will probably construct the world's longest giga coaster as a tribute to Son of Beast, with the station being in the same place. If they're truly ambitious, it could interact with The Beast, I mean if we're talking 8K+ feet, might as well?
I would say Levi/Beh from CW, but @Ryan got to that.
Honestly, what's so bad of a Giga being close to a Hyper Coaster? I would be happy for a park that can get a combo like that.
Again, I don't have a problem with giga's. But why get an upgraded version of something you already have, when you could get something new?
I would honestly not call a Giga an "Upgraded Version" of DiamondBack.
And to be honest, an Infinity Coaster like the one at Knotts (or a Single Rail RMC like RailBlazer at CGA), wouldn't hold a candle to the power of seeing a huge coaster like a Giga (like Fury, Levi, or if you look at PortAdventura; Shambhala).
