^I'm dying at those. Absolutely hilarious. I think what everyone fails to remember is that this picture doesn't say if the keyhole is completely constructed or not. For all we know, they could just be lining it up to put it into place. The picture is taken from kind of an awkward angle to answer that question.

Can I park my donkey here?

^^^Some of the comments on that pic are gold. Is there anything funnier than an argument between people who are both clueless and opinionated?

I haven't been keeping up on this thread as much as I should, so I have some questions that may sound dumb considering I have next to no idea what's going on:

1. Is Cedar Fair going to give the "Diveloop-Immelman-FirstDrop" combo a new name, or will it simply be listed as just a Dive Drop and then an Immelmann?

2. Aside from GateKeeper construction, did Shoot the Rapids really suck that bad to be given the nickname of "Shoot the Crapids"?

3. Why doesn't anyone on Facebook know how to speak understandable English?

4. What's the big fuss about this "Keyhole" thing? Is it going to be a new element?

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

The "keyhole" is basically a piece of scenery that the track goes through with the absolute minimum safe clearance on either side, much like how a key just barely fits inside of a real keyhole.

I mean there were problems with the ride (the boats filled and didn't drain properly, etc.) but my whole party and I really loved it when we visited two years ago. Enough so that we rode a second time, which isn't something I'll usually do for water rides (or non-coasters in general).
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

Beautiful element but I wonder how they're going to close it up. Anyway can't wait for this ride to be completed. ;)

1. It is called a wing over drop.

2. That is a matter of one's opinion.

3. I can.

4. Yes and no. Keyholes are becoming more popular on wing coasters, although this type is new. (expect every wing coaster to have a unique keyhole element)

That is an accurate depiction of the human race, unfortunately.

It's a nickname given by the employees back in 2010 when the ride would always break down.
