Man. At this point I'm not even paying attention to the announcement; Cedar Fair has executed this "Hype Machine" beautifully. All the animations, films, sound editing, and discussion... has created an anticipation that has us all excited for the the unveiling. Honestly... right now... I am admiring this pre-reveal media trip that King's Island has crafted. Good stuff

I'm gonna have to lean away from "Mustang" as the coaster name. It could just be me, but I dont think horses have scaly red eyes... Actually, back when I thought there could be a Maverick-esque ride in that area (Swan lake), the name I gave that idea was Diamondback. Maybe I was closer than I thought?

 

Either way, I can't wait till the 6th! The anticipation is killing me now.

LIVESTRONG LAF FIBONACCI SEQUENCE

 

I found this in the view source, mean anything to anyone?

 

Just throwing ideas around.

 

Sounds like a Da Vinci Code reference to me.

 

Or at least a reference to the Fibonacci number that the book talks about.

The grand picture

So many trims. And they hurt. It's like being in the passenger seat and someone hits the breaks because they just realized they can't make the yellow light after flooring it, trying to make it. Yup, three times.

Here's a few things I'm thinking about.

 

Maverick: Some things were misleading.

 

-After the teasers today, what the heck does "ride sally ride" have to do with anything hinted before? I'm thinking it's a snake.

 

-"The park STRIKES back." Doesn't a snake strike when provoked?

 

-And how about the water splash? Doesn't a snake glide on water sometimes? I think some do...

 

King Cobra returns?

-JZ

"Ride Sally Ride" was part of an old TV show I think, she drove a Mustang.

I am so pondering over the 36 years in the making. And I'm going to type out my thought process as it comes to me really.

 

It has to be hinting at something I believe. It could of just been some guys vision or information like NATMINI = INTAMIN in the Hershey case.

 

Did anything happen in the park in 1973?

 

1973 brought the movies "Enter the Dragon" and "Return of the Dragon" and that eye looks like a dragon on the teaser site, could that be connected to the naming of the ride. Mabye a Dragon emerging out of the woods to fight the beast? Yellow supports and red track sound like Dragon colors to me (and the same colors as the eye). Could the ride be called "The Dragon." He!!, i'd scream and run if I saw a dragon like they were in those "videos."

 

I could be 110% wrong, but this is just what im thinking.

This might be a little out of order but does anyone think this could be the first hyper to have a 90 degree drop, maybe even steeper. One of the teasers said steep incline ahead. That is what I've been thinking.

I wouldn't be surprised, but I dont expect it. I think it could be one of the first to use a really steep lift hill (similar to a dive machine or Led Zep), and i wouldn't be surprised if it was a 90 degree drop.
