This is going to sound outrageous, but I think I know what the new ride at PKI is. I was looking at the webcam, and it is pointing towards the woods, not the park. Then it hit me, the new ride is most likely going back there in the form of a coaster or water coaster. Why else would the webcam be there?
IMOO...and I stress own. Now, I have honestly no idea of Paramounts intensions. But I would guess (by the construction already, and hints everywhere) a HUGE steel terrain coaster. A version like the Beast is to Wooden coasters. I think that even part of it might lace with the Beast. But I would look for this thing to go into the woodes...TONS of air and tree hugging speed...and unbelievable night rides!

When i went to PKI two saturdays ago i took alot of pictures while i was in line for the beast. They were making a access road when i was in line though. But KCKC was shutdown and the fence of KCKC also the map of PKI says that an exciting new adventure awaits in 2002. I will have the pictures developed as soon as i can. Also, I talked to a pretzel guy there right across from KCKC and he said its going to be some type of water ride so PKI Freak, your right with the water part. As for a water coaster i have no idea. But im almost positive that i will be a prototype and will be like nothing that we have ever seen. The only reason that i think it is going to be a ptype is because all paramount parks have gotten a prototype in the past year.
All I know is that if you want the right info you need to go right to the Lemon Chill guy, not the pretzel guy. His uncle is a top exec's assistant's best friend and is privy to all of the shredded material.
Paramount has those types of pics up on all their web pages. I have checked, and its nothing. Just another coaster that is already up. I would also like to remind everyone that this is my prediction: it is not true, but it could be. Just wanted to tell everyone.
As for the webcam, what direction is it pointing? It looks like it's aimed in the direction of Reptar but way past the park. Since there hasn't been (and probably won't be) an announcement for a while, I'm guessing they don't want us to watch KCKC dismantling. ------------- Scott W.

My guess is an Intamin 400 ft tall monster. Maybe it`ll be named, "The Beast`s Grandaddy" or the Son of the son of the beast.

Mother Beast! I still have a strong belief it will be a water ride, but I really hope it's a big steel terrain(hyper) by Intamin or B&M. I love the Intamin track, but a B&M would more than serve PKI's need for capacity(and would guarantee a second-usually). The adventure part sounds more water coaster than roller coaster to me. Whatever it/they is/are, I know PKI will make 2002 one of the best. They've not failed me yet.

First of all, the pretzel guy is on the inside with Miss Cleo, and she is the real deal on all of this coaster stuff. Second, the web cam is now pointed on wild thornberries. weird.

I think PKI is dropping subtile hints onto how big the coaster will be. I think that it is/was pointing back where the Beast is, not by the helix, by the other part. It could very well have a crossing underneath the Beast (how else will they build back) and the bulk of the ride behind Vortex. Hey, it could happen.
P.S. if im correct, please remember I called it first.
