No, because the walkway between that ride and the kids area is just a giant staircase. The other one is the one with the big ramp that's handicap accessible. If they opened it they would need to open the entire park.

I would absolutely love for that area to be open, but logistically I see the challenge as Bill noted.

Last fall I was told that the DC area could be added for HiTP down the road but not for 2019. Again could be and that idea may be dead now.

I always figured if they expanded that the North End would be the next area.

They don't open wicked cyclone for holiday in the park right? Doesn't everyone say it runs better in the cold, so do they have a reason why it doesn't open for HIP?

^ I've always noticed that, but the coldest temperature I've ridden Wicked Cyclone in was probably the mid-40s. For HITP, it would need to run in temperatures colder than that.

But I think the bigger thing is that it's at the far end of the park.

I predict a 252 mph air-launched Wacky Worm, seems like the most logical fit.

No way. A 252 foot tall Larson Loop (in the Rockville Gymnasium spot so it's close to Fireball) is the only logical explanation.

Or they bought Firehawk from Kings Island so they can continue their quest to be the first park to contain 252 Vekomas.
