As my home park, I feel 95% excitement and 5% trepidation because I really want Kennywood to get this right! Kennywood doesn't have a ton of shots at major new coasters, and we haven't seen management's approach to a big attraction in some time. I also want it to be something that I can enjoy for years to come -- no Smilers or spinning, please. Even with the clues and an alleged blueprint leak, the project has a lot more questions than answers, and it's impressive that this thing has remained under wraps.

Can't wait!

I'm genuinely curious to see what they end up doing with this space. Log Jammer took up a pretty decent plot so it will be interesting to see just how much of this land is used for the new addition.

I have to give it to Kennywood, they have put on a hell of a teaser campaign for this new ride. I don't think anyone is 100% sure what this park is getting...Probably not even 50% sure. I'll be a Kings Dominion tomorrow and I'll be glued to my phone to see what the announcement is. I'm excited for this park...It's definitely on my itinerary for next year.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I'm so pumped. My final guess is an S&S launch coaster

My final prediction is a nu-Vekoma. We do know that they can build hypers, since that was one of the choices for Hyperion, so I think the first Vekoma hyper will come to Kennywood.
Top 10 Steel: 1. Steel Vengeance 2. Wicked Cyclone 3. Millennium Force 4. Skyrush 5. Iron Rattler 6. Goliath (SFOG) 7. Lightning Run 8. Diamondback 9. Nitro 10. Superman: The Ride (SFNE)

Top 10 Wood: 1. El Toro 2. Mystic Timbers 3. The Voyage 4. The Beast 5. Goliath (SFGAM) 6. Shivering Timbers 7. American Thunder 8. Lightning Racer 9. Hades 360 10. Prowler (WOF)

Coaster Count: 182

My guess for the new coaster is a B&M invert.

RMC Phantom's Revenge, keeping only the station, lift, and trim brakes. The Log Jammer site is a giant ruse.

I'll go with a big Mack or Gerstlauer.

This is way off. It is either an Arrow or Togo Hyper.
Lightening Rod/Skyrush/El Toro/I305/Superman: The Ride/ Twisted Timbers/Storm Chaser/ Apollo's Chariot/Phoenix/Boulder Dash
