I really hope two parks in the same state don't receive the same ride with the same name.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It sounds like a starflyer just because if it were a coaster with that type of height, some sort of construction would have started already.

I think something like this would be nice for a park like Michigans adventure. They lack decent whirl and twirls. Any news on Michigans adventure next year?

W.T.F... :?r

My thoughts exactly. Being the KI homeboy I am, I'm really suprised I heard nothing about this anouncement until a few hours ago, and its only about 13.5 until the big announcement. Shame I'll be working Coney from 10-6.....Oh well, cant wait to come home and find out or get texted by JZ/Ted (I have a feeling ONE of them will end up spilling it...)

well boys and girls, looks like everyone is slated to get a stratosoar that's making an announcement today, so that makes it 4 CF parks in all, wow, talk about putting all your peas in one pod, lol.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

The only question is where in the park will they put it? I'll take a wild guess and say it goes where the Paramount walk thing was at or in the Coney Mall somewhere.

WindSeeker to debut at Kings Island in 2011
301-foot-tall swing ride to send adventure seekers soaring
If you think riding Drop Tower at Kings Island is a thrill (and it is – riders enjoy a breathtaking view of the region as they ascend toward the sky, then take a 26-story freefall at 64 mph), wait until next year!

Kings Island will continue to change the landscape for thrill seekers in 2011 with WindSeeker, a 301-foot-tall tower that will spin riders 30 stories above the park. Seated in two-person swings that will allow their feet to dangle, riders will slowly begin rotating in a circular motion as the swings ascend the tower. At the top, the swings will reach speeds up to 30 mph, flaring out 45 degrees from the tower. WindSeeker will accommodate 64 riders (32 swings) per ride cycle.

"The addition of WindSeeker reflects our commitment to providing our guests with world-class thrills, fun and fantastic family entertainment," Kings Island vice-president and general manager Greg Scheid said. "Soaring 300 feet above Kings Island will provide an exciting ride experience for our guests."

WindSeeker will be located in the Coney Mall section of the park near the Vortex ride exit.

The $5 million ride is manufactured by Mondial (pronounced mohn-DEE-ahl), a 23-year-old Dutch-based company. Riders must be at least 48 inches tall to ride and will be secured with individual over-the-head lap bars with interlocking seat belts.

WindSeeker will make its debut when Kings Island opens for the 2011 season in the spring.

Located in: Coney Mall
