I was ridding Flight of Fear and saw the King Cobra trains for the coaster sitting in the building. I know the ride has been for sale. Does anyone know why the trains are still at PKI and not another park. Hate to see this old ride rust away just sitting there.
Don't worry about it. I'm sure that, in just a few weeks as King's Island realize they're violating the SBNO or In Storage Act of 2003, they'll be turning the ride over to someone in Indiana, or maybe North Carolina, and it'll get erected pronto. . .
. . . and, if the rumors I've heard are correct, the new park will be using 1,245 Screamin' Serpent sets to add an addition loop and 211' drop to the end of the ride.

Gee, I heard it was going to a new park in Indiana where all roller coasters are safe from destruction and harm. ;) Isn't this the same park operated by 13 and 14 year olds? ;) Check ARN&R if you don't understand...

Yeah it actually tweaked my back in the cobra a few weeks back, and it was in the complete dark (no lights on AT ALL). It was the best ride I've ever had on it thats for sure! It was hauling butt, it seems like they cranked up the launch 10 mph or something, its flying like a bat outa hell!
Didn't you all hear ? They are putting the King Cobra trains on Flight of Fear next year, and introducing the worlds first launched stand up coaster !!! Man, talk about headchoppers...this is going to be AWESOME !!! ;)
