Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

I think there will be seven world records for seven owls

 

Tallest invert:220-250ft

Longest invert:5,000-6,000ft

Fastest invert:75 mph

Most inversions on invert:9

Longest drop on invert:250 ft

Steepest drop on invert 80 degrees

Most expensive invert:30 mil

 

Since the project is starting pretty early, this is going to be pretty big, I assume. I wouldn't at all be surprised In fact, if most of these come out to be true. In fact, I would say that

King's Island went "All IN" with this one.

Just looking at some of those statistics (which are fake at this point), I really don't know what to say other than that

This looks incredible

I would really be sad if

the record they are breaking for this ride is "World's Newest Inverted Coaster"
, considering how much marketing and PR stuff goes around these days.

If that's the case, the name would be a no-brainer: 'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son of Beast' as a prop to Iron Maiden, although I would probably still campaign for 'Laser Snake Horse on Fire'.

I think the record(s) will be:

 

-Most inversions on an inverted coaster at 7 or 8 (I might be incorrect, but I think all of the current inverts only have 6 or less; in any event, I see 7-8 in the blueprints.)

-Height record for inverted coaster (over 200 feet tall); can't tell yet.

 

There might be others, but that's just what I think from the information known at this point.

Montu has 7 inversions

Montu has 7 inversions

 

Thanks, I was not sure. Looking at the blueprints again, I am seeing what *looks* to be 8 inversions:

 

-Dive Loop

-Vertical Loop

-Zero-G

-Weird element that has two inversions

-Vertical Loop

-Two consecutive zero-g rolls/inline rolls/flatspins in between the two helixes

 

It's difficult to tell for sure but seeing the twist of the track I see two more inversions of some kind after the first helix. I am wondering what the pretzel looking element is-it appears from what can be seen that it is some kind of figure 8 thing.

 

Even with what appears to be the real plans visible, there are still some blanks to be filled in later this week. One thing is for certain: whether this was an allowed leak or not, the park sure is getting a lot of buzz over it!

It's going to be interesting to see how tall this one will be.

 

I don't think it will reach the 200 feet mark, but I would love to be proven wrong on this.

My guess would be for most inversions on an invert.

My vote is for the first "feet hanging" inverted coaster, hence the Bat reference! Since bats hang upside down, this new coaster you will hang upside down the whole ride, think of it as the world's first Inverted Stand Up coaster.

The 'weird element' is just a batwing with an immelmann exit. Will probably look pretty similar to the pretzel loop on a flyer.

 

As far as the last two inversions, it looks like a very drawn-out roll after the helix/overbank and then a drawn-out corkscrew (maybe like on OzIris) after the helix that leads into the brakes.

Plans put on YouTube. There's always a chance that they're fake, but I doubt it because they're extremely detailed and as somebody who has taken a few engineering/mechanical drawing courses, these are done correctly and it seems like a lot of effort to put into fooling a few coaster enthusiasts on the internet.

So excited!

 

I hate to be Mr. Debbie Downer here, but allow me to just copy-paste what I commented on this Youtube video (5 bucks says the uploader deletes the comment):

 

4 days, nearly 6,500 views, 54 comments, and nobody's pointed out that the word "vicinity" is misspelled on these supposed "official" blueprints, as clearly seen the second the video starts?

 

Nice try though.

It is spelled correctly right underneath the misspelled word.

 

Seriously though, I have two cousins who are engineers and I had them watch this video. They said that no regular person can come up with site plans like this. You gotta have the right printers and CAD systems to even come close to something that's this detailed. If they're fake, I'm willing to bet this guy is some type of engineer or works in some engineering office.

Yeah I am an architect and these plans are for sure real. Now that being said that doesn't mean this is the final layout (or the layout at all) of the ride, but it's definitely actual drawings. And based on the sheet setup and names of the sheets it appears that this set is far beyond the stage o f schematic design for the ride and is a construction set meaning it is fully designed and engineered.

 

As for the misspelling, you'd be surprised. We get drawings from engineers, surveyors, etc. all the time with spelling mistakes. And we send drawings to permit and then realize there are spelling mistakes. These drawings are made by humans, and therefore spelling mistakes happen.
