I am very excited for the announcement. Unfortunately I won’t get to watch it when it happens but for good reason I’ll be front and center at Iron Maiden tonight. I will never be disappointed with KI getting a big coaster. I look forward to my phone blowing up from all my friends messaging me about it.

2 + 2 = donkey!

About a million other useless statistics: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.


:nina: Honestly why I stay away from most enthusiasts. The fact that a large portion of this community has gotten to a point where a coaster with a 300ft drop isn't good enough just bothers me. I get not liking a ride once you have actually ridden it. But stats on paper never tell the whole story. Mako is a prime example.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

They want to project it on a screen or the side of FoF, I believe. That, and those of us who are tall enough to ride this ride can probably stay up past 10.

Night shift FTW.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

I'm thinking the earlier speculation of the name or theme being Orion or Polaris has something to do with the 10pm announcement time. It's a bit difficult to go star gazing in broad daylight.

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

Absolutely! Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. Your passion and enthusiasm is super uplifting and appreciated. I don’t think anything you had to say was too “out-there”, and hopefully, to the benefit of all of us, you’re right about some of your guesses!

Intelligent speculation is always fun when it comes to coaster announcements. But regardless of the specific details Kings Island unveils tonight, I hope we can all agree that this is going to be a world-class coaster!

Love it! 10/10

Meanwhile, it's been a great day ar the park today (well, other than Diamondback being down all day), with everything walk on, or nearly walk on! Can't wait for the announcement in a couple hours! This truly is a great park already, and is about to get even greater! :D

Hi everyone! I'd just like to let everyone know I'm an idiot! I thought I'd be "cute" and post the new ride info and BE FIRST to say it on the forums, because somehow I thought maybe that would get girls to like me or something...

Turns out...I'm just a moron and all it does is cause the admins to have to do MORE WORK and it got me banned from the forum.
