Isn't Clermont not too far from KI?Well giga track is being produced at Clermont right now
FIRST OF ALL, I NEVER SAID IT WASN'T POSSIBLE! Just this year..See, now THAT is a post containing actual concrete evidence of a giga, unlike the previous track update which didn't show the unique cross ties.
Let me put this out there now: I, as well as @Snoo, @tomahawk, and all the other naysayers, are probably wrong about Kings Island's coaster...probably. I say probably for two reasons. First...while this is almost certainly a giga coaster, it's not out of the realm of possibility that B&M is commonizing some hardware among their large scale coasters (dive machines or maybe 250+ foot tall hyper coasters). Second...this is very likely going to Kings Island...but just because there's a large amount of land clearing going on does not necessarily confirm that Kings Island is the destination. I know @roomraider has laser vision over in Asia and would likely post any solid news he can, but what if some unknown park in China was building a giga coaster? Let's get some actual proof, like site plans filed at the clerk's office or track on site.
With that being said, we'll probably see some painted track sections show up at Kings Island in the middle of the summer...but let's PLEASE wait until that happens to start shouting "GiGa CoNfIrMeD" like everyone and their mother has been posting since a staff member wrote "giga" in the snow last winter.
Why on Earth would they make a 300-foot Dive Machine?So can we tell whether this is a dive or not? I have no idea that they would make a giga dive (but some mentioned it earlier) but I seem to remember people saying that you could identify dive track?
The track pieces have a serial number starting with MC, meaning it is either a hyper coaster or giga coaster. Dive coasters have track serial numbers starting with DM (for 8/10 seater models) or D6 (For 6-seater dive machines).So can we tell whether this is a dive or not? I have no idea that they would make a giga dive (but some mentioned it earlier) but I seem to remember people saying that you could identify dive track?
Lol I don't pay attention to that AI stuff and was hoping it was a joke so, good. I should have phrased it like "so can we dispell the giga dive myth?" haha!B&M's product lineup calls out one model - mega coaster - for any sit down coaster with lap bars, regardless of height, train configuration, or track profile. You'll see MC as the code for both Hollywood Dream sized rides and Fury sized rides.
You guys. The giga dive machine is a joke stemming from people making fun of Amusement Insiders' baseless Yukon Striker claims.
