there will definitely be no coaster for kings island

This isn't even slightly true, with the teasing and all the clearing, it's most likely that they are going to be getting a coaster next year regardless of how many years ago Banshee was added

 

Sure, but it would be the worst decision made by cedar fair, or kings island.

How? The park pulls in huge crowds. And larger attendance boosts are seen the two years AFTER a large ride is installed, not the year it opens, so they're probably trying to ride that wave. It's a perfectly good investment.

 

More parks need a coaster before ki

 

You have to look at it this way: What is best for the chain overall? Sure, they might have just gotten a coaster two years ago, but if there's a larger opportunity for growth by adding another one, then there's a much higher chance of that happening than another park getting a big investment.

 

if it was just an rmc redo that would be fine though.

 

which is the exact same thing as a new coaster?¿¿¿¿¿¿

^^Yeah but it doesn't matter whether they just got a new coaster or not, Cedar Fair obviously feel like adding another coaster to Kings Island rather than say Kings Dominion will have a larger impact on attendance and overall revenue. If Cedar Fair know that it'll have both those impacts then it has to be a good investment. It's not about whether a park needs a coaster or not.

Pretty sure we can all name a LOT more "worst decisions" made by Cedar Fair other than giving Kings Island a new coaster.

I think that cw should not get a wing coaster but instead a dive coaster or an rmcing of minebuster like I said before. But we dont know yet if cf is ready to start the rmc plague to a bunch of woodies in there chain of parks.

even CP does not get 2 coasters within 3 years.

 

Gatekeeper and Valravn would like a word with you.

 

Not to mention, when I was growing up, it was the norm... Raptor and Magnum (87,89), Magnum and Mean Streak (89,91), Raptor and Mantis (94,96), MF and WT (00,02), and then WT and TTD back to back (02,03)!

 

(Also, technically, GateKeeper and Valravn do not qualify, as they are 13, and 16... But the Rougarou conversion was 2015, so it's still pretty much a new(ish) coaster! )

^It aint the old age anymore bud. Plus if they keep adding new attractions, they will run out of room too quick. Less hype for the new coasters too since they receive them so often. That's why I think it's good that cw waited all this time for a new coaster. The gp will be more excited just like if they got a B&M hyper at Michigan's adventure. the gp would be .

Wait. Raptor was built in '87 AND '94? I know what you meant though - Iron Draggin' and then Magnum.

 

CP in the 80's, 90's and early 00's was known for adding their big attractions every two years - it was almost like clockwork that you could anticipate a new coaster every two years.

^As long as the commercials are well set up . Imagine a commercial for ziz.

The new Ziz for canada's wonderland!

 

Speaking of ziz. They might still go with the theming of ziz but change the same to something like maybe gateprotector.

Ziz is seriously a terrible name. Absolutely laughable. Sounds like a soda out of the early 90's, not a huge steel roller coaster.

A) Did you seriously just call me "bud"???

 

B) Are you seriously trying to still defend your point, even against all proof that it's not accurate?

 

C) There is no C... There never is a C...

 

D) Cedar Point has been "running out of room" since I was a teenager... I turn 40 in a couple of years... Cedar Point is not running out of room...

 

Z) Have you been to CP this year? It's the most packed early in the season than I have seen it for a LONG, LONG, time... maybe ever! Pretty sure Valravn following closely behind Rougarou and GateKeeper hasn't dampened its hype at all!

Doh! That's what I get rushing through posting before having to head out the door! Yes, Draggin' Iron! My favorite coaster from when I first rode it in '88 until I rode Magnum a few years later!

Technically Leviathan is "Gateprotector"

No, the metal detectors are the gateprotectors to make sure that there are no guns in the park.

z. Sure

 

a. Yes, but it's still a valid question!

b. Actually, it's not simply an opinion... I, and others, have provided concrete facts, proof, that CP frequently will build large coasters twice within the span of a few years.

d. What I stated about people saying CP is running out of room the entire time you've been alive, is fact. I've seen and heard it. Yet, they keep adding coasters. Fact. Additionally, I could show you quite a few places they could add a coaster, though I won't, because this is a CW thread, and we're veering way off topic now!

z. See how easy agreeing with me when I'm right is?

 

I'm not going to argue anymore, because it's not constructive, but I do recommend taking a step back, and re-evaluating your "opinion", because it doesn't seem to be rooted in facts... Take care, bud!

The highschool kid is enthusiastic and means well but lacks social and debating skills.

 

I hope with the new gerstlauer flat that they begin a new relationship with gerstlauer and start bringing in twisty loopy element filled coasters. some kind of modern looking coaster designed after the invention of the heartline.

 

Why don't we change the subject to boring forceless B&M's with great capacity and low downtime rivaling a schoolbus.

All of this deep financial business insight from a 15 year old. Trust him, guys. He knows what he's talking about.

 

I wish I had that much confidence about my ignorance when I was 15.
