I think KI is getting a beemer. Probably an invert or a wingrider

I don't see Cedar Fair promoting the crap out of "world's [X]-est" with Gatekeeper, then installing a bigger one at KI the very next year.
An inverted, however, could be in the cards since Raptor has been there awhile and nobody will blink if there's a bigger inverted just down the road next year.

I'd love to see B&M do something interesting with an inverted. The layouts for those are heavy on inversions, usually... the longer the ride, the more and bigger inversions they put in.
How cool would it be to have a huge inverted that has a couple of nice big loops, then dives into a series of ground-hugging zig-zags and helices and such? The proper theming (think Big Bad Wolf) could really amp up the thrill of that kind of ride.

^ That would be cool. They could go the CW route and build a giga but I don't think that will happen. Another thought is a RMC coaster

With two new coasters in the Bay Area recently (and a third on the way), I don't think there will be anything new next year that has not been announced (Undertow).

Woah. Do I need to get to Darien Lake next year???

Looks like a new RMC woodie going up there.
Also... what's a "wing over drop"? Is that kinda like what Gatekeeper does right after the lift?

Wow. You're quick.

I just saw this and I said, "I have to report this on Neg-G!" But you beat me to it.

Darien Lake is within reaching distance for me as well, but the shortest route is through Canada!

Paul, could you please name some of these Beemers, as there's one park in particular I could see as a probability for one. :wink:

I had heard about Bizzaro, but didn't hear about Nitro.

Both rides kick ass, but if I had a choice, I'd go with Nitro. That ride rocks and is Top 25 and probably Top 10 steel for me.

I had also heard Superman going to SFStL and Great America gets Bizzaro, but that's just me and my wishful thinking. ;)

Nitro looks awesome, but I would so much rather have a brand new, and custom hyper for our park.

Correction NITRO is Awesome. At least it was last time I went back in 2002. I may have to head back up there soon.

Don't forget there are still a handful of nice Beemers sitting in Myrtle Beach. I bet one of those would fit nicely into the landscape at SFStL.
