Interesting...I wonder if they're getting the eagles from another Paramount park?  PKI has ones that look just like the ones in the pic.

I hope not...the more the merrier I say. Does anybody know where in the park they are planning to install these?

Hmmm, in the picture on the website, the ride first shown is not a KMG Afterburner, because the Afterburner only has 6X4 seating. Based on the 8 arms, I believe it's a Chance Revolution.

I believe that photo is PKI.

But you can't trust the photo. After all, this image is still on Kings Island's web site... :)

Rumor has it that Larson International (the Ring of Fire guys) is building a new set of Flying Scooters for Great America. But I don't think anybody has formally announced that, and Larson didn't display anything about it at their IAAPA booth.

I sure hope that those will not be Paramount`s Kings Island`s eagles as I thouroughly enjoy that flat ride.  It fits well into its location at PKI.  It is the only ride on the path that connects Coney Mall to Rivertown at the Larosas`s restaurant.  Lets hope that, as RideMan says that a company is now making new models of a classic that went out of production years ago. *** This post was edited by coastersrz on 12/7/2001. ***
