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

Recommended Posts

Well since this was brought up be others and now i wont sound like such a Negative Nancy,I'm not a fan of curved swaying drops either. Curved drops like that take away that awesome feelings you get from a classic drop. You dont get that awesome stomach drop feeling. You dont get the sensation of free falling. You dont get air time. You just dont get that "omg im gonna diiiieeeee!!" rush! Thats why I dont get why Boulder Dash for example is such a big hit. I never been there but i seen POVs and noticed it doesnt really have "real" drops just mostly curved ones. To me there is no way i can see a coaster like that beating an awesome coaster like El Toro! I mean I never been on BD or El Toro but from the looks of it I can see El Toro making BD look like a sunday drive...Also what I don't get is when people actually scream on curved drops.

Well, all I can say is get out there and ride it because it gives every wood coaster on the planet a run for its money. Boulder Dash is probably the most out of control feeling you will ever get on a roller coaster. It is mayhem from start to finish.

El Toro used to be my number one coaster. A day later, I rode Boulder Dash... And then I had a new number one! The POV's don't do it justice. Every hill is filled with airtime, every curve throws you, it's an insane ride. It never, ever lets up and keeps its pacing the entire ride.

I'm really looking forward to this! I have no problem with parks reinforcing their wooden coaster collections -- no one says "meh, too many woodies" about Holiday World or Kennywood. I'm glad that KI is adding to its legacy in that department without feeling like it must retry out-Beasting Beast.

Not bashing anything, but why not use the valley more?

 

Its currently a reservoir for the neighboring White Water Canyon. It is currently drained and will probably fill back up to where you wont see the cylindrical concrete supports. Should be a cool moment in the ride. I believe you can see what I'm talking about in the offical POV here.

I can't wait until we find out what's in the shed so I can watch the bitching that's sure to follow. Given the space they have to work with in there I can't envision a scenario where whatever is in the shed will live up to the hype that some people have created for it.

I'm not sure why everyone got so excited for the shed, common sense says its a small show or visual of some sort. The real attraction is the coaster not the storage shed they had worked up.

I still want to know what could be in that shed.

Lawn Mower, Leaf Blower, Snow Shovel, Assorted Lawn Tools... the normal stuff

 

 

It's a shed. What else would you expect?

Jimmy Hoffa? The site used to fake the moon landing? A slack-jawed yokel?
