^I'm pretty sure I was mildly disappointed to find them a touch less roomy than the ones on other Morgan hypers--but not to the point of diminishing the experience of airtime on the ride, thankfully. And much better than Magnum's!

(And looking back, it also may have just been an initial worry before riding. At any rate, the ejector on this thing is top-tier and I'm glad people still recognize that, what with all the new rides that compete with it!)

I may or may not ( ;) ) have been doing the ol' "tip toe to hold the bar up a bit higher when they check the restraint" method...

Apparently these are up in the park now!

Is that the Log Jammer or Thomas Town area?

Footers being built already. Basically confirming steel coaster... No RMC after all. But a sleuth on reddit (thanks, scott m) found this statement from an individual in the KW community.

Heard some juicy news from my Kennywood source today. The 2019 coaster is supposedly an Intamin multi-launch coaster that will utilize the hillside, ravine, and former railroad building just like the original RMC plan was supposed to. RMC plan was scrapped due to different stability requirements for terrain for wooden and steel structures. Project is supposed to be the park’s biggest investment to date. One of the two launches will be inside of the railroad shed. Unclear at this time where the other launch is but there will be several inversions similar to Maverick at Cedar Point and Cheetah Hunt at BGT .


I wouldn't put TOO much weight into this just yet, but things are certainly heating up. At least the 2019 coaster is pretty much confirmed!

I wouldn't rule out RMC. They build steel coasters too...

I Love Donkeys!

Dang. Just heard the news thanks to a Reddit user. If this is turns out to be Intamin multi-launch, I would be extremely proud in Parque Reunidos.

I know, but taking this iteaser at face value, we know it won't be a steel RMC.

Where did that photo originate? Kings Island did the same thing with a giga.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Man if it's an Intamin multi launch this is going to be really good. I know at that same presentation a spokesperson from Ildewild said the Parques Renidos is starting to spend some significant cash in the parks due to a change in ownership and company philosophy.
