    Haven't even bothered watching the videos because they're obviously utter bollocks?​

    I mean its hypothetical completely and worth a look if your curious but it's very unlikely especially as footers are nowhere (this isn't like Harry Potter ride at IOA). It is funny the bridges burned by YouTubers on this forum. I've always loved CF for it's lack of empathy or belief in non-confirmed or verifiable sources. While it did take a minute (and me kicking some folks in the booty), I think we all are simply waiting for CW to announce tomorrow because you can throw out all you want but right now it's just about patience.

    Oh, I agree. To be honest I don't really care much about this announcement, although I am curious. However, I'm just confused why people are complaining about these AI videos but they're still being posted and talked about above all else?

    I actually didn't watch them either :D, I just embedded them since they popped up in my recommended and I thought more people would like to complain about them.

    Well there has been an issue with "fake news" from a number of YouTubers, not just AI. As CW is AI's home base of operations, they've been spitting out videos every other day in regards to this. Speculation is fun, we've had it on the forums throughout this thread. However, outlandish stupidity is the name of the game in an attempt to garner attention from certain video makers. As many aren't fans of that around here, you've seen fun backlash from many folks, myself included.

    That being said, you do you.. but if you do stupid you, you're gonna hear about it. CF will always be CF, and I'm damn proud of that. :D

    Also.. trolling for the sake of trolling is more of a douchebag move. Don't be a douchebag.

    Apologies, won't happen again.

    On another note, is anyone planning on attending the passholder event?? I might be wrong on this but I heard they were having a construction site tour or some sort of event tomorrow

    So looks like a 5:30am EDT announcement time? If I had to guess it's just pre-recorded video's then that will be live on the site at that time.

    Countdown timer can be found here

    They usually make their announcements live on the news IIRC.

    I have to say, it looks fantastic!! Super pumped about the vertical loop, and although I'm a little underwhelmed by the basic Cedar Fair ending, I'm still extremely happy with this addition, looks absolutely fantastic!! The color scheme is no where near as bad as I thought it could be, which was a pleasant surprise, and the unique inversion (not quite sure what that's called) after the immealmen looks great!! Nice job CW!! (Don't know what I think of the name yet, I'll process it over the next couple days and get back to y'all on that one)

    And no, I don't think it's the #1 dive, that would prob go to Liseberg's in my opinion, but this is still a super solid #2!!

    It looks good! Probably the best DM of the big ones thus far.. but that ending.. sweet jesus just end it instead of a turn around. Killed the speed and flow of the ride.

    FYI.. that's not a Giga in case no one noticed. :p

    seems reasonable. I do appreciate A) Not a cookie cutter and B) what appears to be an homage to skyrider in it's old plot. Hopefully it's forceful. It's not worst case scenario but I'm also not blown away.

    Looks real nice! I think that a much longer first half will really benefit the ride! I hope my New Hotness 2019 Trip fits the budget and time constraints of my sister going off to college

    They caught me by surprise with that vertical loop lol. The only thing I don’t like about it is the ending. It just doesn’t feel right

    Out of curiosity, who told you the name was "The Ledge"? I suspected it wouldn't be the name since it was filed in the U.S., but whoever fed you that bull:emoji_poop: must not know how trademarks work.

    I heard it from an upper park employee that wasn't quite at upper management, but definitely was far above your basic ride op's knowledge. I do have to say I was a bit surprised as he told me about Hangtime even before Boomerang's closure was announced (and was pretty accurate too), but what can you say, you win some you lose some. And outside the name, it seems like everything panned out pretty well, so we'll just have to see with the official announcement tomorrow

    I am quite impressed by that opening series of inversions! Love the placement of the drop and Immelmann as well. Interested how the stats will shake out.
