Firehawk closing after this season

Recommended Posts

^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.

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?

I've never been a fan of Firehawk, but at least it is unique from the other coasters at Kings Island. Vortex has nothing special about it besides being a steal coaster that has the distinction of beating the crap out of you.
