Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

P. 829: Adventure Port themed area announced for 2023!

Recommended Posts

How embarrassing that's my home park too (SFMM) . I guess it's possible plus I don't think Cedar Fair has anything big going on at any of their other parks for 2014 (besides the rumored dark ride at CP) so they could put some heavy money to KI. We shall see.

I know this is HIGHLY unlikely, BUT has a theme park ever announced TWO new coasters? This area could fit an invert and wing rider very well and maybe their record breaker is two new coasters in one year? It seems to almost be 50/50 as to it being an invert or a wing rider.

 

SFGAm announced both V2 and Deja Vu for the same season back in 2001 where V2 opened on time and Deja Vu was SBNO for most of the season until Fright Fest.

 

SFMM did two in 2011 with Green Lantern and RRE as well to better success (opening them, not necessarily the rides themselves)

 

However both of these investments were both fairly moderate as far as coasters for big parks goes and didn't require a great deal of time to erect. For KI to do an invert and a wing rider in the same season would be absolutely bananas.

I find a few things interesting about banshee.com.

 

1) The domain is registered with GoDaddy and is being pointed to GoDaddy servers. No other Kings Island websites seem to be hosted at GoDaddy. They're pointing to these Namesevers (I only checked the Diamondback website and the park website).

 

Name Server: NS1.CLT.PEAK-10.COM

Name Server: NS1.JAX.PEAK-10.COM

 

So if they're planning on putting this up on GoDaddy they're doing it for the sole purpose of screwing with us. This seems entirely plausible at this point but I wanted to point it out.

 

Also... this page is being worked on right now. A few minutes ago it showed an error page but not the default page for a GoDaddy site. It was an Apache error page. The only thing is it looked like it was built in HTML to look like an error page but wasn't a real error page.

 

Now it's showing "Various Banshees around the web" which is what was there a few months ago according to the web archive. Since it just changed, someone is working on it... and that seems like it can't be a coincidence given the time. It could still be them screwing with us. But it's definitely them.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that Geauga Lake added 4 new coasters when Six Flags first took over. However, I doubt that KI will put in both a Wing Coaster and an Invert.

Supposedly, X-Flight cost $15m. I'd imagine you could get a Batman-scale invert for about the same. So yeah, they could probably build one of each for $30m, but they wouldn't set any records and neither would look like the blueprints.

We don't know that those were the actual blueprints for the KI coaster, so it's still a possibility, but not a high one.

Wow, people STILL think those were fake?

 

You don't waste the time and money for drafters and engineers just to prank enthusiasts... Sorry.

 

Do you have any idea how long it takes to make drawings THAT detailed? You just can't put those together overnight. When we make drawings like that, it can take WEEKS.

I don't think they're fake, but how do you know that they're the blueprints for the KI coaster? They probably are, I'm not trying to say that they aren't, but you can't be 100% sure until after the announcement, that's all I'm saying.

Did you miss the point in the video where they pan over and show the edge that says "Kings Island" on it? I doubt that would be on there if it were for Michigan's Adventure? Check at 1:24 of the video, it's right there

Maybe the fact they show "Kings Island" on them and the topography and other attractions are shown?

Ok, sorry, my bad, I didn't see that when I watched it. My bad.

Did anyone else see the tweet from Great Coasters tweeted about some of their engineering team are enjoying Kings Island's twitter tonight? They said there seems to be something big going on. Kinda interesting that even they are talking about it. What if we have been duped and it's a wooden coaster after all. Doubt it. I'd rather have an invert though.
