I hope it's the "Cobra's Ruturn" B&M standup. Same location and everything, but i doubt it. Just hope it's a coaster .

Hmm can't wait. My speculation calls for a rollercoaster, though it is a fact that they just got off of major capital spending with Tomb Raider.

Because of that fact, the new attractions may not be too major. Besides, the King Cobra site is not terribly large, and hasn't it already mentioned that a couple of upcharge attractions have already been placed there??

Off to CP in August, Hopefully off to two other parks in July though!! YEA!!!! :-D It will be a good summer!

I agree and am keepin my fingers and toes crossed that it will be a coaster but I have an aching gut feeling that it will be a Giant Frisbee, of course that feeling could be those taco's but we won't get into that now! :)

No one has gotten press passes, they usually want the press there when they announce.

PGA installed Psycho Mouse for 2001. How is that not a coaster?

I think he meant this year. What I heard was a themed flat ride, Mission Impossible: The Ride. It's supposed to be one of those flats like Tazmanian Devil at SFMW. I don't really know flat ride types off the top of my head...

SaxPlayer, yes there is a Slingshot but its on a former grassy spot that made for great picture-taking of KC, it doesnt use that much of the site.

RideMan, no KI does not have one of those Delirium things.

Where can we go to find out about the announcement?

Thats what I was saying, There is no Delirium at PKI. YET!

However PKI dose have Flying scooters :)

They are generally really good about getting press kits overnighted for announcements, and I've not seen anything yet.

But there is a reason for that Jeff. Lets just say that a birdie told me the announcement was actually supposed to take place prior to the closure of PT. But a hold up led to them delaying the announce.... a hold up outside of the park's control.

Actually I am more curious to find out if this is a full announce or just a "partial" announce, rather than what they actually reveal. There is more than one thing coming.....

Well we have a big empty space where KC was and a just closed dark ride. I am sure the announcement has somethign to do with one of those things ;)
