POV!

(For some reason the link won't link :( )



Looks fun, seems to carry some nice speed throughout. The final brakes still look ridiculous though! I certainly wouldn't be upset if this opened somewhere over here, even if it isn't a giga :P

Looks nothing short of epic, always an amazing day when a new B&M coaster opens.

Looks awesome. The big wave turn and speed hill appear to be some of the highlight moments IMO. The color scheme is also eye candy.

One day I'll get back to Kings Island and ride this... or any coaster... at any park... eventually!

Easily best drop at Kings Island, and that constant speed's gonna be great, along with flying around those big elements. Can't wait to try it!

Guy works in guest relations. Park would be absolutely dead without this. They need people in there to hopefully spend money.

Fair point. I just saw all those open reservations for the weekdays following opening weekend and... yeah, it looked like it would be a ghost town, especially Wednesday July 8. Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd are booked solid. Every other day after that is wide open. Hope this news stays true, I'm sure plenty of pass holders would love to scoop up those empty days and that second Saturday!
