Maybe for the 40th, then, they will get some sharks with lasers to play in the fountain area in front of the tower. Come on, Cedar Fair. Throw KI a frickin' bone.

CW got a windseeker for thier 30th.

I don`t think KI`s due for a big addition. How about Texas Giant treatment SOB, and un-neuter the beast.

Additions can seem like band-aids... Fix whats broken.

I was going to ask who said they thought it was a coaster, but then I started reading the Facebook comments. Egad.

Egad is the perfect word for describing the comments of most of the major parks on facebook.

Has anyone considered they may be replacing the Antique cars they took out for backlot stunt coaster, maybe doing version like Michigan Adventures Be-bop blvd. using eletric cars?

I said that on page one. I have been predicting that even before this conversation. I foresee a new path that goes behind Racer, connecting the Vortex area with the Firehawk area. Along this new path could be the old car ride that they removed for Stunt Track, and land for future expansion.

That idea came from me putting together a lot of stuff people who worked there have been saying, but like I said in my previous post in this topic, I could be wrong.

Some people have mentioned this as being a potential new haunted path (even though they already have one haunted trail through the woods...but perhaps they would just move it)...but wouldn't this be one long path? It takes a very strange meandering course, and just based on length alone seems a bit drawn out for a haunted path.

How have people come to the conclusion that this is near Racer exactly? We can't even tell the scale that this is drawn at, though it does look like whatever the line means, its precise, because its printed from CAD.

Because you can see Racer's turnarounds in the drawing.

To me the line looks like a path for a new haunt. The area it's in is completely wooded. In addition, the line begins and ends at the same point. What I mean, is that the line seems to be twice as thick as it passes under Racer. To me that indicates an entrance and exit path. I wouldn't be surprised to see a similar haunt to the one on Millennium Island at Cedar Point. Here is a google satellite image of the area

There is already a Haunt path way down a dirt path back there. I wonder if this wouldn't just be a relocation and expansion of that one to make it more accessible. Its current entrance location is so far down a random maintenance path that you start to wonder if there's really anything there, or that maybe you missed it.

Are you talking about the one by Firehawk? I hope this would be adjacent to it. Though it's difficult to tell from the satellite image. With the immense crowds during the Halloween season, It would make more sense to add (if possible) and not just relocate/redo. I thought the crowds at Cedar Point were crazy until I went to KI last fall. It was cool. But, with how crowded it was, I have no desire to go back any time soon.

Yeah, the one that is way back that maintenance road that goes through the woods back there. Given the area that line/area covers, I'm pretty sure it would overlap with the current path of that haunt (if a new haunt is what that is for).

I agree with you about the crowds, though. That's why I did as much as I could on Friday. Got there at opening and stayed until the bitter end that night, and what I didn't fit in between the rides and the haunts on Friday, I did first thing in the morning (evening for the Haunts). I think my mom and I had left by about 7 or 8 that evening (she actually enjoyed a lot of the haunts). As soon as I finished my photo tour of the new slaughter house haunt the crowds were getting insane. We also did the new haunted dinner (wasn't very impressed) that weekend. They could definitely use some more things to spread out the crowds during Haunt.
