Yeah, if a rumor is confirmed, it's no longer a rumor. It's a fact... Unless you're confirming there IS a rumor.

^So it has been confirmed that there once was a rumor that did exist about Leviathan possibly being originally intended to be installed elsewhere besides CW. So we have confirmed that it is a fact that there was once a rumor that did exist.

Glad we could clear this whole thing up :lmao:

Worlds of Fun Announces Major New Ride for 2014!

Worlds of Fun in Kansas City, MO announces SteelHawk, a new ride that will take guests to breathtaking new heights! Get ready to take flight as SteelHawk soars 301 feet in the air and spreads its steel wings at a 45-degree angle at a speed of 8 rotations a minute swinging riders for a 60-second flight.

Approximately 100ft taller than Rip Cord, Mamba, and Detonator riders will experience a sense of exhilaration which will mimic the feeling of free flight. SteelHawk will feature 32 two-person swings that provide gravity-defying thrills as riders’ feet dangle at heights never experienced before at Worlds of Fun. On a clear day you can see stunning views across Kansas City. Families can experience the thrill of SteelHawk together, and with its unique LED light display mounted on the arms; SteelHawk is an outstanding nighttime ride.

“After combining Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun in 2013, we wanted to come back immediately with a major new ride for our guests. SteelHawk takes riders higher than any other ride currently at Worlds of Fun. SteelHawk will be a spectacular showpiece that will be seen for miles,” says Frank Wilburn, Vice President/General Manager.

SteelHawk will be located in the Americana section of the park across from the Patriot and is themed for the majestic birds-of-prey that hunt the prairies of the Midwest. SteelHawk will make its debut in the spring of 2014 at Worlds of Fun.

Please open your arms and welcome Knott's Windseeker, now with more lipstick!

The reality is the park wanted one a few years ago, but with all the trouble of the other ones that never happened. This should round out the family offerings nicely which means a new high thrill ride could be on it's way in a few years!

Except that the Windseekers have a 52" height restriction so it's not really a "Family Ride."
