Wait, there is actually going to be a safari-themed ride in Safari Village? Is that allowed? 🤣

My money, in all seriousness, is on Tiki Twirl.  CF already has a logo drawn up and everything.

He has a lot more history with Kings Dominion than just 2 years. You also forgot that Carnival and Winterfest also came in under him (I know they aren't rides, but I feel they are big improvements for

My feeling on the design is that they better have the layout different from MF. This is the second giga made by Intamin and it needs to be unique. My guess is that the trains will probably be different since MF's train design are nearly 10 years.

 

 

You don't need to worry about that. The terrain and land area differences alone will make this ride very unique when compared to MF. One can only hope it's better (i.e. contains airtime, "Bizarro-style" as opposed to floating over hills like you would when driving on a country road "Millie-style").

What did I say... looks like some sort of helix to me. I am surprised that they did not wait to start vertical construction until after the announcement, but I seem to recall someone saying they were behind schedule. Anyway, thank god and it is about time for some supports to be going up (even if it is only a few feet).

^I don't think the ride is quite boring, it just has boring parts like the helices and straightaways, buuuut I've never been anywhere near that ride so I can't have an actual opinion on it.

ON the KDfansite it says you can call a phone number and the audio of the announcement will be live at 11:00 ET, does thsi mean I could call at 8:00 Pacific Time and listen in??

 

Yes, that is my understanding.

^Yes, that would make sense.

 

In that second video posted one page back, I had no idea that much track was on site and if you look at the piece of track at 1:31, that is one seriously large and twisted piece of track. I cannot wait until tomorrow. I don't think I have been this excited for a coaster since Maverick.

^It looks like a hair beyond 90 but not by much. Perhaps it is the gradual increase in font size that make it seem like it will go beyond 90. Who cares though, its going to be awesome!!!

 

Don't think like that.

 

Imagine what riding in the back seat of a 90 degree+ first drop...the airtime will be nothing short of INSANE!!!!

Check out the logo posted on the announcement page for KD.

 

If the logo is anything like the coaster, it looks like it will have the standard 45 degree angle lift with a vertical drop.

 

The logo also depicts the support structure like MF's.

 

Here's the link:

I wouldn't judge the way a ride looks in real life off of a logo. Especially when the "support structure like MF's" isn't even the right color.

 

12 hours!

Yeah, the MF squiggle logo is nowhere near the actual angle of the drop. I would expect this to be somewhere in the 70-80 degree range, but it wouldn't really surprise me if it is steeper.
