King's Island's newest ride?  
Anyone have any theories on what the newest ride to King's Island will be? We were there yesterday and it's definitely showed a lot more progression since when we were there a month ago. It is definitely a roller coaster - they're trying to hide the large section of track that is ready to be placed, but I sure saw it! It's dark red - similar to Firehawk's color, but it looked like a light grey base instead of black. It appears that it's going to be a BIG coaster ... when riding the train, they pointed out the section behind The Crypt (formerly Tomb Raider) where it's being built, but they've also drained the pond near the Beast/Vortex/Italian Job and are building in there also - that's also where the "coming 2009" signs are posted.

So, to me, it looks like maybe a coaster going over the entire midway of Rivertown and possibly with a water feature, as they're building concrete retention areas and what looks like fountains.

King's Island will be announcing what the ride is on 08.06.08 on their website, I will have to remember to look then!

4 days of Cedar Point countdown: 5 days!
