Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

This thing is gonna be fantastic when it's finished. I can't wait for them to erect the lift so we can see exactly how tall it's going to be up against the other rides around it. I have yet to be on a B&M hyper, but from what I've heard they're amazing. I was hoping to get to CW this past summer to ride Behemoth, but the plans fell through early on.

Its about time someone updated! I've been stalking the webcam, but I obviously needed some ground pov porn. I love how Diamondback is going to tower over the midway! Also, how even the bunny hills on the return run dwarf Deathbat: the Ride! I really can't wait for next season...

Agreed. From the looks of it, mostly every hill of the ride will be taller than Darkride: The Box. The only one I'm not sure about is the hill after the second helix going into the splashdown.

 

The first drop isn't even halfway up yet, and some shots from the parking lot already show the track above the skyline. This thing is gonna TOWER over the park next year. I can't wait to see the new skyline.

I was wondering... is there any particular reason why they haven't started to build lift hill?

 

Could be due to the massive scale of the project & they want to get as many supports up as possible,they could also always start at opposite ends of the coaster & work towards the middle to make the project go much faster.

 

Seeing the rather steep lift gives me hope that KD's rumored 2010 project(if it comes to pass) may turn out to be a B&M since they'd need a steep lift angle to get the ride to fit in the only possible location within the park.

Not that it's really that huge of a difference, but the press release read

The ride will stand 230 feet at its highest point with a first drop of 215 feet at a 74 degree angle
. Again, I don't know how much 4 degrees will make, I was just feeling nitpicky.

 

I love these updates. Lift is looking great. And steep. Awesome.
