My prediction for the coaster:

 

Dragon coaster

15 feet height

800 feet elevation changes

3,569.5 feet long

green vibrating trains

splash down

barrel roll drop into a dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop go **** yourself into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into another dive loop into a jo-jo roll into a splash down into a rainbow into one of those trendy RMC upside down reverse airtime hills that really aren't that great into all of the themeing in the world to make the coaster geeks happy into a pokemon go gym into a Bernie Sanders rally into a free credit check into interlocking corkscrews into a station fly through into a lame aqua trax joke into the depths of hell into a fat people making fun of how fat ace members are roast into the largest loop in the Cincinnati region into a magnetic break run into a launch into a non magnetic break run into a lift hill into El Toro into the station into a free tee shirt and key chain stand.

 

Also, the queues will have shade.

 

 

This post is hilarious and amazing.

 

On the other hand I'm cringing thinking about the 5 posts that are on the way that take a funny post and beat it into the ground. Jumping tons of sharks and landing on tons of dead horses after completing said jumps and giving us all douche chills in the process.

I like turtles!

Centurion: GCI woodie with 100* overbank and possibly a 0g roll. GCI said they'd like to try an inversion and I think that this is their chance

Why are people still saying, "Centurion"? I thought it was common knowledge that the trademark for Centurion was not accepted because someone else already owns the name?

 

Nope! Cedar Fair still owns the trademark to Centurion since 2013 and actually just recently filed for an extension as of May 2016 (and it was granted): http://www.trademarkia.com/centurion-86094874.html

 

With that said, Banshee is not owned by Cedar Fair but rather Kings Island Park LLC. So I do not think Centurion would be the name of this ride as it is not trademarked with the other rides in the park, but rather the chain overall (not to mention it does not fit any of the teasers or anything to do with the woods at all).

OK, I'm extremely confused because I *know* I read on that same webpage a couple of years ago that the trademark was suspended. Did Cedar Fair purchase the rights?

No clue! I never remember seeing that but do know some people reported it as such. Not sure what happened but I'm assuming something will happen with the name eventually (or hopefully, because that's a decent penny to spend on something and not use it!)

 

^As for the comments on the Livestream. Yeah...I had to exit out of the comment stream. That and a lot of the comments are repeated and just ridiculous.

From a media standpoint this is an odd time for the announcement with the final night of the DNC going on right now. Usually big KI announcements are the top story in the Cincinnati area (and all of Ohio), so I hope this doesn't get too overshadowed by all the political talk for Don Helbig and crew.

I certainly saw it so the people who reported it are not just bringing that up out of thin air. Cedar Fair may have fought it (or bought it).

New roller coaster coming to Kings Island

 

 

MASON, Ohio – Construction is underway on a new wooden roller coaster adventure for visitors to Kings Island.

 

Themed to an area surrounding a lumber company becoming overrun by a mysterious medusa-like overgrowth of vines as nature reclaims its land, Mystic Timbers will be 3,265 feet in length, reach 109 feet in height and weave along steep cliffs, down ravines, cross over water and go through an extreme S-turn, among a forest of trees, at speeds up to 53 mph.

 

The ride will feature a total of 16 airtime hills, a mid-course tunnel and interact with parts of the Kings Island & Miami Valley Railroad and White Water Canyon attractions.

 

“Mystic Timbers is naturally exciting because of its setting in a densely wooded area,” Kings Island’s vice-president and general manager Greg Scheid said. “The natural rugged terrain and tunnel ensures a unique and memorable ride experience.”

 

Mystic Timbers is custom designed and built for the topography of Kings Island by Great Coasters International, Inc. (GCI) of Sunbury, Pennsylvania. Three trains will accommodate 24 passengers each (four riders per car and six cars per train) with a capacity of 1,200 riders per hour. Guests must be at least 48 inches tall to ride. The ride experience will last more than two minutes.

 

“Everyone who enjoys the fun and thrills of riding a roller coaster will want to experience this attraction,” Scheid said.

 

Mystic Timbers will debut in the spring of 2017 and become Kings Island’s 16th roller coaster and its fourth wooden.

 

With the addition of Mystic Timbers, Kings Island’s wooden roller coasters will combine to measure 18,804 feet of track, which will be the most at any amusement or theme park in the world.

 

Those who cannot wait until spring may take a virtual ride on Mystic Timbers at mystictimbers.visitkingsisland.com. Visitors of the website may also access exclusive updates and features, including virtual ride renderings, ride statistics, construction photos and a live Web cam.
