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

It's hilarious that on Facebook people are criticizing the lack of creativity in the teaser.

I'm just surprised there aren't more construction updates here.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Personally I think teasers are fun, even when we know exactly what's coming, as in the situation were in right now. As to why I was disappointed/surprised at them not having teasers earlier (and it was starting to seem like there was not going to be any at all), is because this is KI after all. They always deliver on kind of stuff. If this was some other park not known for teasing big new coasters then yeah I wouldn't be surprised, but because KI's precedent of pulling off teaser campaigns incredibly well naturally I had high expectations for them in this realm.

That having said, they are now exceeding my expectations. These posters, while filled with mostly irrelevant/purposefully diverting info on them (as typical teasers are), they're still cool to look at imo.

All new ride teasers aside, those are some well-designed posters that would look great hanging up in a game room or something.

Teasers are great when you don't know what's being teased . . .

Scanning the QR code on the new poster brings you to this site: ... dit_var=v0
Very clever way to have user interface. Also, some of the comments are interesting, to say the least.

The first comment seems made by Kings island!

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Okay, I'm liking this petition thing so far. Very clever! Over 1300 signatures so far.

I know we basically know a lot about this project already but I still find teaser campaigns fun and amusing. I mean, if the park can run an effective teaser campaign for a ride after it was already announced with a ride video, layout, and everything, then who's to say they shouldn't or couldn't run a teaser campaign for a ride that's yet to be announced even though there have been "leaks"?
