Clearing by the Racers(PKI)

Sunday, July 20, 2003 12:53 PM
While riding the forwards Racer I noticed a clearing by the turn around. It looked like it was the foundation going up of something. It's probably nothing, but looked suspicious.

I may be wrong but if I am thinking of the same spot, that has always been there. I think there are several clearings back that way but they have all been around awhile and have proved to be nothing.

They created a couple of clearings when they needed fill dirt for the Tomd Raider site two years ago.

This spot actually has a foundation being built on it. It's not just a clearing.

What kind of foundation? A building foundation or something more like a footer?

It actually looked more spread out, like a building.

If I'm not wrong I think they launch off some of the fireworks there. ;)

It's going to be the foundation for the tower of a 540 foot Intamin rocket coaster!

Oh come on jkpark. PKI does have the reputation of going beyond whats done before, but not that much! Give it a rest....

Really. I didn't know they were getting a hyper floorless next year. I thought PKI was going to build a 499 ft inverted-standup strata-coaster... at least that's what the dippin dots guy told me.

Okay, enough with the jokes. Is anything being built in that area?

According to Jeff Siebert during our walkback of that area at Beastbuzz: "Pay no attention to those piles of dirt, pay no attention to the clearing. It means nothing"

To most people that would have been the first clue. ;)

Personally from what I have found.

PKI likes to build in "corners" of the park (ie, Tomb Raider, Delirium, Scooby Doo). The only corner left before they start over is by the Racer. though that could mean nothing.

July is the time of year PKI starts visual construction of usually things that are major.

If Jeff says pay not attention...that is always a Gimmee. If they aren't building anything he laugh's and says, "nope, nothing going on yet." ;)

PKI's themeing departments seems to be having a lot of fun with themed rides the last two years, and I don't think they will stop for a while. I'm looking for this to be a very heavy themed ride also nothing big probably around 200 or less, no record breakers, or anything. Just reliable and have a GREAT story line.

Also back by the RACER SOOOoo many things could be going on due to the mantenance sheds, fireworks, Halloween props, and more being back in that area. But, I too would and will keep an eye out around that area!
