Sarcastic, huh? My first thought on reading about DejaGo, sorry, VertiGo was "What? But SFMM has one." Thought a bit & came to this conclusion; it doesn't matter as they're low capacity rides & will bring in revenue to all concerned.
I think these slingshots are smart moves for the a lot of parks. For one they generate revenue. They keep guest busy and it offers indirect entertainment for the guest not riding it. I have seen countless times where the gp will stop just to see someone ride a skycoaster.
If this VertiGo goes in place for the Windjammer that would be sad because I thought KBF was going to put a coaster in the open land (Impulse). Or I thought that KBF would get a long rumored hypercoaster.

It won't be a hyper. Falfas has said that all along. I wouldn't be surprised to see either a tilt type coaster, though. I am sure Intamin can do pretty much anything, having seen California Screamin', Millenium Force, and the impulses.
Now if only Jim Disney would give us a few more hints, or at least when Knott's will announce the ride. Jim, you're teasing us terribly....
I think they should have kept the name Absolutely Insane. I thought that was fantastic. Also, I'm glad to see KBF get something good. I wonder how similar the KBF coaster will be to the Intamin looper @ CP...... jeremy ------------- "I propose that a smart death ray be designed to smite any who attempt to smoke in a line queue.
