Surprised to see no new activity on here. In fact, it’s almost like it’s The End of the World as We Know It.

^I'm surprised at the lack of interest, too.

It’s almost as if enthusiasts should just let parks present us with information as they see fit to create some sense of mystery, and not try to discover every single detail of a new attraction. But that would require patience.

The park has literally been teasing the past few days by putting posters on the fence.
But you wouldn't know that by coming on here.

Personally I'm just not into trying to decode teasers that are this vague, especially not when we all generally know what's coming.

I'm sure I'm not alone.

^ Correct. Teasers do nothing for me either. All I want to know is who the manufacturer is and what type of coaster it is going to be. I like when people find construction permits or plans so we can just cut to the chase without the teaser hype.

Well, modern announcements have two elements, surprise and fear. And ruthless efficiency. Three elements. And an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.

Amongst park announcements are such diverse elements as surprise, fear, ruthless efficiency....I'll start again.

Probably because teasers aren't really meant for enthusiasts as they're the only ones nerdy enough to go to city hall once a week and look for blueprints and permit filings. So by the time they start, especially at a park like KI that has to submit all that stuff to the local government there's no surprise.

So why work yourself up? I just wanna know the announcement date.

Teasers are meant for the average daily visitor to learn something new is coming and invest in a new season pass. That's all. Most enthusiasts still can't comprehend that parks don't revolve around them. They're ads.
