Great news! Lets hope they don't have to take their fights public every few years in order to keep the park growing...

There was a map posted a few pages back. There are no plans at this time to expand into that area except for the tiny, tiny cutout necessary for this coaster.

That's pretty sweet! And what a relief the project is back underway once again!

Definitely one of the brighter sides in the world of coaster enthusiasts when a bunch can push hard enough to get a coaster's opening back on track.

Awesome! Hopefully a little phone call to the fair board helped a bit too. ;) I'm really looking forward to trying out the Timberliner trains finally.

Really neat that they thanked Robb and TPR by name. I'm glad to see that this dispute was resolved so quickly... The Fair Board really was at fault here for not making good on their contractual agreements.

Great news for the park! Still cant believe all that crap actually happened when the state have lost the park once already...

The new ride looks great, but I'm not really feeling the location. Seems like that corner would be reserved for expanding the water park in the future. Surely they know what they are doing, but still.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

It's no surprise honestly. The Fair Board is the reason why Six Flags abandoned the park suddenly and took Chang and the Roadrunner Express coaster with them. It's also the reason why the Koch's also pulled out of the deal when they were thinking about taking it over but at least Ed Hart knows the headaches of dealing with the Fair Board and is good at dealing with them and playing their game with them.

I've been thinking about something lately and it blows my mind. So, if you go to Kingdom you'll notice that t3 sticks out the most in the park and it pretty much towers over the park, coaster wise. Obviously there are some other attractions that are taller than t3. However, T3 is 102 ft. tall at the top of the lift. If you go to Kings Island, Mystic Timbers seems super tiny on the skyline, everything towers over it. However, Mystic is 109 feet tall. Just imagine how much a taller coaster would tower over everything at Kingdom. :lol: :omg:
