    I never considered the "One of our own" thing, clever.

    This is an excellent point, I believe you may be right.

    This is an massive stretch of the imagination!

    Cedar Fair are going to Troll the whole the enthusiast community.
    Invertigo will be removed and will be set up at Dorney in the spot vacated by Stinger

    The way they teased and hyped up the Antique Cars, this wouldn’t surprise me. Dorney getting a coaster though seems more unlikely than Son of Beast returning lol

    Beast is being removed for Full Throttle.

    THAT'S RIGHT WE HAVE AN INTERCHAIN TRADE.

    Beast of course will be turned into the worlds largest trojan horse and release a virus on every goons computer.

    The tombstone name and the fact that the air is "eerily quiet" really has me thinking vortex. 14 hours until we find out!

    If they were to remove Invertigo, what would they put in it's place?

    I think that no matter which one of those turns out to be demolished this time, the two others will be taken down before long too. Give it, say, five to ten years, and I think all of them will be gone.

    Finding out at 10, my guess still stays firm as Firehawk. It’s a pain in the butt for maintenance, parts allegedly not being made for it anymore (and potential for Nighthawk to get the leftovers), another one of its type sitting SBNO for months, the 11 chairs, the wreath colors, knocking it down opening up that dead end to all that land behind it for something bigger, it all seems to fit.

    Vortex I’d rule out because it’s reliable, Invertigo I would because it’s popular and just got the leftovers from Stinger if I’ve heard right. I could see a surprise and have it be Vortex (I’d rather Firehawk stay but talking replacement, I’d probably like what would replace Firehawk more than what they can fit into Vortex’s plot), but I’m sure it’s not Invertigo.

    Or it could be them announcing Banshee’s relocation to Valleyfair to make way for RMC to rebuild Son of Beast. ;) #FirehawkitorChoppingBlockit

    Keep in mind that Vortex is also in a sinkhole.

    Confirmed that Firehawk is being removed. I am actually a little sad, I really liked that ride and it was one of the coasters that sparked my enthusiasm :(

    In a way I'n glad it's not Vortex, but the Firehawk's only been operational for 11 years since it came to KI...

    It was weird and uncomfortable so no great loss imo. A bit of a rare find but as long as they build something cool in the next couple of years it should be a net gain.

    It was definitely one of those "get on and hope to survive" kind of creds lol.
