  2. Diamondback's water feature is used as breaking, though it ran without before, it also makes the breaks work harder, at least that's my interpretation.
  3. I can see a number of things for this situation, I thought this was fake at first, but apparently, it was true, so it took me by surprise too! I can't see them not reusing the station and queue if any sort of coaster is being developed, that station and queue is only five years old, so I don't see them just demolishing it, I can easily see a custom Raptor here, or maybe an infinity coaster mainly to fit the shape of the midway next door, then maybe take the coaster down to the site of the pavilions in that area? on a side note, that walk to the flyers is going to be really awkward in 2018...
  4. I was wondering the same thing, I really can't figure out what they are even teasing at this point.
  5. I'm sure it's okay to post, just don't pull your phone out on rides!
  6. ^ They were going to.. back when Paramount owned Kings Island, they sold the land that Great Wolf currently sits on, and sold it to Great Wolf to build a resort that would be PKI's hotel, during the construction of Great Wolf, Cedar Fair took over and didn't want a hotel (at least that's how I see it)
  7. there were new photos released on some instagram account that I can't remember the name of, but i got into a huge war with the kid over posting photos from the causeway.. common sense isn't so common anymore
  8. But he lives 13 minutes away! He definitely knows what's up. Don't forget he listens to Coaster Studios, so he must be the real deal!
  9. The Lemon Chill guy must have told him, or the Dippin Dots guy off Valravn's Midway
  10. I can't see it reopening in time for 2018, they have to rebuild everything, some buildings I'm sure are a complete demolition and rebuild, I can't imagine how they are going to rehab rides like Mega Zeph.
  11. Wouldn't that be because of the amount of time it takes to load a train? I'm not a Carowinds local and I've only been a handful of times.
  12. I personally think the new paintjob is what this ride needed, the green was fading and i think the blue looks way better! This park has improved dramatically over the past couple years!
  13. I think a large factor in the construction progress lies in attention to detail. That of which IvadR seems to have much more, as it is a terrain hugging machine. Let alone any other themeing surprises BGW has in store. Not my quote but yes, I agree with you. InvadR has much more going into it than just a shed. speaking of the shed, construction near the shed has started, Footers seem to be in place and ready for track installation! http://pixelcaster.com/live/kingsisland/diamondback.html
  14. Wow, can't wait to see this "increase in noise near Grizzly", I'm sure it will be one fantastic hyper! It's interesting to me that Cedar Fair would be working with Huss for their "swing ride", and they already have Delirium, notice the Kings Dominion version is only 114ft while the Cedar Point version (MaXair) is 140ft, also its interesting how no height is given on their Slingshot.
  15. Park management takes everything into consideration, capacity, ride experience, ect, i'm pretty certain the park knows the capacity and how much Mystic Timbers can do an hour, since KI is a very popular park in the summer time, I'm almost certain this thing will have great capacity with a good crew. I hope the rumors of bins leaving Diamondback are true, finally they won't have the situation of operators saying okay you have 30 seconds and people are busy messing with the bins and the 3rd train ends up stacking...
  16. long story made short: Coasterstock with a friend, friend snaps too hard, signs in the way... no more snapping at our gliders.. enthusiasts rage.. the end
  17. wow I LOVE the idea of decorating the top of the tunnel like that, very creative! Can't wait for Kings Island's winterfest to open next year!
