Paramount's Kings Dominion announced today their 2003 attraction: A 305-foot tall Intamin gyro-drop. The ride has not yet been named, but will open next spring. The Scrambler will be relocated to accomodate the new ride.
Update 6/21: The park today gave the following additional details:
Hold on - isn't PKI's gyro drop 315 feet? That's what they advertised anyway. Or does this mean the drop itself is 305 feet?

Pki rox Man!!!
I wonder if they'll put "Pardon Our Dust" on that wall....

Well there goes the original rumor that I heard earlier today about it being an S&S tower,although it's not an acrophobia clone an intamin gyro drop is great for PKD none the less and it will have better capacity than SFA's tower of doom.
Now this should scare SFA into doing something in 03,Ricochet didn't phase them enough but two years back to back without a major new attraction is a bit risky with this big announcement.
So I'm assuming it has normal, not stand-up, seating?

It really doesn't hurt if you just "position" yourself correctly. I think people just want to say, "ow, my d***." It gets really annoying.

i've had the pleasure of riding Drop Zone and on a clear night you can see downtown Cincinnati... Drop Zone rocks! i rode acrophobia about two weeks ago and i figured it couldn't be worse and/or better than DZ and whoa... didn't that ride blow the socks off me... If it was an acrophobia clone at 305 I would have to seriously think about riding it...
