My visit this past weekend was great, even with Saturday being very busy and me missing out on FL until Sunday.    I went into Orion not having followed its construction or watched a POV or even

Get over it man.  You've made your point and we get it; it's silly that this park did not do a Winterfest-lite.  Make the 8 hour drive to KD if you want to experience that, just like all of us with KD

I went the weekend before last and wasn't going to do any sort of report or review, but with this discussion, I'll throw my hat in the ring. I thought Orion was fantastic.  Millennium Force is th

I'm placing bets now for it being a wing-rider named the Bat.

 

I just think that's what it looks like from the plans, and that logo looks like it took some time to make. I used to work as a web developer, and I created sites with dummy content like that all the time before the client sent us the final copy/images to use.

 

That's just my bet - I'll be checking in tomorrow to see if I have finally guessed an announcement right. I'm like 0/4 at this point.

B&M and Launch are two words that don't go in the same sentence.

 

The Incredible Hulk is a B&M Sit-Down Coaster that features a launch and 7 inversions

I do some web design work as well and I 100% agree, but I just have a feeling about this one. Apparently, the logos and stuff from Flight Deck are starting to disappear. Maybe that will become The Bat and Banshee will be next door?

 

Studying the blueprints, it's got to be an invert. Only the leaked site or the blueprints can be right (or neither?). I'll go with blueprints. So I'm saying Invert. For the most part, I'm going that route because I hope Cedar Fair IT wouldn't end up making the same mistake two years in a row.

Except for Incredible Hulk, you couldn't have said it better, but let's hope that changes with the announcement tomorrow.

Definitely not a wing coaster or invert. Most likely a sit down coaster like Incredible Hulk. If we do see a B&M launched coaster one day, I wonder what type of launch it would be. Hydraulic, LIM/LSM, or Flywheel? I seriously doubt a pneumatic launch.

I wouldnt really want to see them do launched coasters. I think the way they do them the "classic" way is unique to the company. Save the launching for Intamin, Mack, ect.

 

Hey almost 1 day till the announcement! Go Banshee

And it was'nt too long ago that that none of us would have fathomed that B&M and Giga would have been used in the same sentence.

 

Less than 24 hours to go folks...if this does end up being an Invert let's hope there is some new element that we have never seen before on an inverted coaster.

Probably not a launched ride but that's me.

 

The new lifts kinda suck. Hear me out.

 

MF and Maverick are great rides. But, the lift hill is too fast. Meaning, that you don't have that much time to look around and take everything in. Then again, The Beast has the slowest lift hill I have ever been on. There needs to be a nice compromise on lift hill speed. Diamondback's lift hill speed is perfect, not to fast, not to slow.

 

I would love to meet up with some other TPR'ers tomorrow but the weather doesn't look that good. Not really in the mood to stand around in the rain for a coaster unveiling. I might change my mind but I doubt it.

 

Either way, can't wait to see what they thought up. I know i'll be renewing my Platinum Pass for next year.

I think I'm the one who brought up the launched thing. I hadn't seen the blueprints, but since apparently they have a lift hill I know it won't be launching. I didn't think that my one comment that was proven wrong would be discussed any further.

Anybody check out screamscape in the last day rumors of a bait and switch but unlike any I've seen. The rumored Bat/Banshee possible coaster instead what could be even better is a re theme of Top Gun to the bat and have the new ride be added in the old SoB spot to match the new Bat with a Banshee.

Yes today is the day they announce the day for their announcement of the day they announce their new Giga inverted wing launched wooden coaster! Oh the spectacle! Also everyone is wrong it's not called Bat or Banshee Its called Batshee and the Silver Comb of Mystery! Yes it will have a small dark ride section! Worry not after the first season it will be declared too scary for the GP and they will purchase the art and set pieces from Garfield's Nightmare at Kennywood. It will then be retheamed and renamed Garfield and Batshee's Wild Night . . . And the Silver Comb of Mystery!
