My prediction:
Mack, 220', 75 MPH, $24M, 3 inversions, 4000'
DC Rivals was $22M US, 210', 73 MPH, 4400+' . That was a hyper but Mack has an interest in large inversions.
It would be a chance to get right KW's previous attempt to make a large coaster with inversions.

More guesses: Vekoma would seem a better fit for a budget. KW does already have a hyper, maybe the world's first and last 197' tall coaster duration 2:20?... If they weren't laying footers close together I might still have to trot out Raptor 220' with a barrel roll at 197' and 50 supports.

Just a reminder in advance of today's announcement... Please let the announcement post come from a moderator of the forum. Rather than having a bunch of people post different portions of the news separately, we like to compile the information in one official post.

I'm really intrigued to see what this is. Usually a (presumably) large coaster would have already had more details leaked out, but this has been kept under wraps really well. I could see this going several different ways.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Phoenix, Wildfire, Outlaw Run, Boulder Dash
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Helix

I'm hoping for the first RMC full T-Rex track or whatever it's called, the larger version of the single rail. From the reviews of RailBlazer and Wonder Woman a bigger, taller, longer version of that with a higher capacity might end up being on of the best rides coasters in the world.

The park itself will be streaming live on Facebook. The fan site linked to above ^ should be in attendance and also plans on streaming it, but the park's Facebook account looks to be the official source.

Yeah, no problem leaving that to you guys, cause your announcement posts are awesome and polished with tons of info in one spot!! :) Incidentally, I hope I did not step on any toes here when I posted about this announcement a couple days ago! I do apologize if that was out of line or if you were already planning on a more official post about today's announcement. I was so excited I hadn't thought that they might have sent info to TPR directly!

I am so freaking excited about this announcement!! :b :b So much mystery, so much kept under wraps......and now we're just 10 minutes from finding everything out!! I have a gut feeling that (regardless of what this coaster is) this will be HUGE for Kennywood.....as in, an investment unlike any other in park history (cost-wise anyway).

As for a final prediction?? Might be a long shot.....might be me dreaming.....but what the heck, I'm going with the world's first RMC T-Rex!!! ;)
I would rather be off riding coasters!

Steel Top 5 - (1) Steel Vengeance (2) Skyrush (3) Fury 325 (4) Millennium Force (5-tie) Phantom's Revenge (5-tie) Maverick
Wood Top 5 - (1) El Toro (2) Phoenix (3) Voyage (4) Ravine Flyer II (5) Shivering Timbers
