It looks kind of weird to me. There would either be tons of brakes or a lot of friction to only go 415 feet high after that drop without anything else to the layout.
Top 3 Parks: Knoebels, Dollywood, Cedar Point
Top 3 Steel Coasters: Steel Vengeance, Phantom's Revenge, Skyrush
Top 3 Wood Coasters: Voyage, Lightning Rod, El Toro
Top 3 Flat Rides: Knoebels Flyers, Zipper, It
185 coasters

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

A giant free-fall on the side of a tower is the only trick to the pony. Just like Dragster, it slams straight into the brakes.

A zonkey is a cross between a zebra and a donkey.

With a drop that high I'd factor in air resistance. It can only hit a certain speed until it stops accelerating, so I'm guessing it could only go that high up back.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

A ropes course off the side of the stratosphere would be amazing. ;)

What if Michigan's Adventure got one of those coasters for sale on interlink? I could see Kanonen, Zaturn, Venus (The Maurer Looper), or the Schwarzkopf looping star.
Zaturn @ MiA.png
It would replace Corkscrew and the mini go-karts (if they're still there). It would stretch a bit into the lake but that'd be cool so. Kanonen also fits in the spot quite nicely.
Top 5 Steel: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. Maverick 3. Hyperion 4. Twisted Colossus 5. Millennium Force
Top 5 Wood: 1. Swamp Fox 2. Cu Chulainn 3. Mystic Timbers 4. Shivering Timbers 5. Racer @ KI

^ If anything, I think that Zaturn would fit best, but I don't know if Kanonen fits in the box. If it did, you'd still have some room left over!

^Being as we already have a thread about rumors and crazy ideas, I moved your post in here. We also have a discussion thread devoted to Kings Island.

Thank you.

They already have that. It's called SkyJump Las Vegas. It's a vertical ropes course . . . Straight to the ground! :)
Bigger is not always better.

^^^ Agreed, this world needs more 300+ feet coasters and KI could deliver, it is good that B and M's are now getting a more diverse layout.
