    This looks bizarre.

    Unless the supposed giga also goes back behind adventure Express and banshee there is not enough room in the DA area. B&m cannot pull off quick transitions. A giga in that area would be a little bigger than i305's footprint. B&m needs lots of room. Fury goes from the back of the park around to the front and around toward intimidator. If a b&m giga goes in that space it will be another POS like raging bull. With the plans cancelled for CGA's hypercoaster due to lack of chain performance maybe CF passed on the giga and is putting in a wing or dive?

    Still think they should fill the space with flat rides....but not likely.

    ^Agreed. I sure as hell hope KI does ANYTHING but blow ~$25 million on one of those sleeping pills known as a "Bolliger and Mabillard Wing Roller Coaster". Gatekeeper - never did I think a ride could deliver so well in the aesthetics department, but so poorly in the excitement department... Thankfully enough, if I had to guess we'll get a Giga for 2020. Unfortunately it's not going to be by Intamin... However, a B&M Giga I think will still be pretty good.

    Not shedding any tears over this one.

    Its making me nervous that this will be a b&m wing coaster in x base....
  11. Good one, Mr. Roberts. Needed a laugh to start my day.

    Do not understand how anyone could think those two rides are alike. One stays on its base, the other spins in the air. No comparison to me. This is an amazing video, Mr. Roberts. It sure seems like at one point that you're going to launch right out into space. Dizzying to watch in the early am.

    They seriously need a Tilt-A-Whirl, but maybe they feel like it is to much like The Monster. I love Tilt-A-Whirls, but if I had to choose, I would keep The Monster. There are so many unique roller coasters in other countries, I wish they would improve on and make improved versions of some of those, like the Ultra Twister.
  14. I can hardly wait to vomit on it. 😀

    Hmm. Did not even think about a giga coaster. Still think they need more flat rides. They do need something back in that area though. It always feels out of place somehow, disconnected. And you're right, Mr. Roberts. The line for whatever will leave will be very long.

    For some reason, everyone thinks that a Giga (Millennium Force) is going to replace the defunct coaster. I don't know if that is one person's wishful thinking that other people are grasping on to like it's fact or if there is some truth to it. Firehawk has had a lot of issues lately. It has broken down a lot. But as far as I know, it is the only "flying underneath" coaster in Ohio. It is rather unique for the Midwest. Cedar Fair doesn't have one and I'm pretty sure Kentucky Kingdom doesn't either. You may just have to travel to a Six Flags to ride one. Plus, it seems like it was recently added to the list of open rides come Winterfest. But I only hear rumors. I know of no facts. Although, if they were to put a new coaster back in that Area 51 hole with Flight of Fear, it would really pick up attendance and create a new viable midway. Vortex gets my vote because it is such a rough ride that beats up grown ups. But it is one of the first coasters that kids can ride before getting tall enough for Diamondback and so forth. Needles to say, I'm torn, although kids aside, I would like to see it go. Someone else pointed out that the funeral signs and flowers are Firehawk colors, and the seats are in rows of four at the layout, just like Firehawk sits 4 in a row. But this could just be people reading too much into things. Regardless, the anouncement will be made at the end of this week about which coaster is going to suddenly have a super long wait through the rest of October as everyone tries to get as many last rides in as possible.
