It's time for 2023 to 2025

2023 - B&M Vortex will get VR
2024 - Waterpark expansion
2025 - Kings Island will get PolerCoaster

2026-2030 Coming later, i'm just a little too lazy.

2017 - New family water slide complex/playground to replace Hook's Lagoon and LED light package for Giant Wheel
2018 - Zamplera Giant Discovery flat ride in where 'Cuda Falls was and Beaver Brothers Bay revamp
2019 - New coaster in Galaxy theater's place
2020 - RMC Predator for its 30th anniversary
2021 - Zamperla Skater coaster

It would have been cool to have a water complex with these ProSlide rides

Kids Bowl
Kids Octopus Racer

BTW This is not the Kings Island Future Subthread

I am annoying as f**k!!!

A crazy idea I had was a lay down coaster where you started sitting upright and you leave the station, then go through a dark ride sequence (backwards of course) then as you are in the sitting position, the track does a half loop, going downwards. As you lean back, following the track (imagine the sensation) the seats move into the lying position, which by that point will by the flying position at the bottom of the loop. Then you leave the dark ride section and fly through the rest of the course.

This is sort of viable if the seats work. At no point would there be too much negative g force, as the seats will move while in the inverted half loop. It would feel like jumping off a building ... backwards ... in the dark ... then someone (Superman or something) picks you up.
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I never come in here because it's a cesspool so I'm late to the party but I'm glad boldikus and Philrad are on top of things.

No i did not pervert, i drew the layout. Stop being so dirt minded and get a little innocence.

Hi, I am not a pervert, and it was a joke :?r . I meant it to be taken light heatedly but I understand it could offend you. I did say after that it would be really cool if a dynamic coaster like this was made and agreed with your design. What would be good to see is it being low terrain through the woods, straight after the big drop.

You might want to google what a cock looks like because Maddox's idea didn't resemble anything close to one. Welcome back, Henry M.

The giga @ KI has been going on ever since King Cobra was announced to be removed. So what, that's like...2002? Who knows if it will ever happen. Every. Single. Time. there's a new coaster in the works it's a default to "Yeah I've got some inside knowledge and it's for sure a giga.". Although the latest speculation has turned to RMC just because RMC is the new hotness.

I do believe that area behind Racer/Firehawk etc is the perfect area for a speed oriented terrain coaster. I know we're getting it now in a different shape with Mystic, but that area does have some nice elevation change and surrounding environment.

Is there a Willie Wonka dark ride anywhere? If not, why not?

On some coaster group on face book i heard some fake news that shockwave at six flags over texas is closing in 2018 for a water raft ride! I hope that never happens i think shockwave should stay right where it should be it's a classic!
