To me there is no way i can see a coaster like that beating an awesome coaster like El Toro! I mean I never been on BD or El Toro but from the looks of it I can see El Toro making BD look like a sunday drive...Also what I don't get is when people actually scream on curved drops. :shockr:


El Toro used to be my number one coaster. A day later, I rode Boulder Dash... And then I had a new number one! The POV's don't do it justice. Every hill is filled with airtime, every curve throws you, it's an insane ride. It never, ever lets up and keeps its pacing the entire ride.

Come one. Come all. Ride the roller coaster in my pants.

That's the water reservoir for White Water Canyon. It's currently drained but will be filled with water when the season starts.

I'm really looking forward to this! I have no problem with parks reinforcing their wooden coaster collections -- no one says "meh, too many woodies" about Holiday World or Kennywood. I'm glad that KI is adding to its legacy in that department without feeling like it must retry out-Beasting Beast.

Its currently a reservoir for the neighboring White Water Canyon. It is currently drained and will probably fill back up to where you wont see the cylindrical concrete supports. Should be a cool moment in the ride. I believe you can see what I'm talking about in the offical POV here.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Nice pictures. I think this ride will be a sleeper hit. It is not a stat machine, but it will be fun. I still want to know what could be in that shed.

Why do I still have a donkey title???
