Hello! I thought this thread would be an interesting spot for the all new project at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio for what one can hope is for 2020. I will try to give weekly updates like I do on Youtube as well as maybe a daily update if things get interesting.

On Friday, April 26th, the weather was much better than the previous weekend. In terms of land clearing, as you've seen the stretch of land has been extended back towards Beast's first brake shed. All 3 Arrow's where open as well and entertainment options where posted at locations around the park. Currently the following shows are set to be for this year:
  • Gravity - Kings Island Theater
  • Off The Charts - International Bandstand
  • *NEW*Flashback 80's - International Showplace
  • *NEW* Country Flashback - Festhaus
  • *NEW* Space Beagle - Peanuts Showpalce

Land clearing heading back towards Beast's first brake shed. Its interesting to note how close this is coming to Field of Screams, the parks Haunt maze that is only 3 years old. It will be interesting to see if the maze returns this season.

The shrubs/plants around the exit for Bat have been chopped so you get a good shot like this of the Bat as well as a good shot of the helix on Banshee if you move to the left of where this photo was captured.

Want to chip in with something very intriguing.

Some large sections of B&M track were recently spotted at the B&M Plant in Clermont. Although there was lots of track pieces for Hershey's 2020 hyper, these had a different code on them. (MCT compared to the MCR on the Hershey track pieces):

Could this be for King's Island 2020 Giga???

Nothing really intersting to report from the park on this update. Just some things I noticed:
  • No new clearing has took place since the last update. They have cleaned up the work area though.
  • New patch's have been added to the items to collect, they are $4.99 a piece before tax
  • New Snoopy pins have popped up as well (found in the emporium on International Street)
  • Congo Falls opened up this weekend for the first time.
  • Space Beagle, a new children's show that is enjoyable for everybody opened this weekend in the Peanut's Showplace

Plot twist: it's a decoy meant to throw us off while the real layout is much different and hidden behind credentials.
Here's the thing yeah we started off friends but this is not a Kelly Clarkson song and not how it ends.

Hmmm...that would constitute a pretty massive disappointment given how much hype this thing has. Kings Island has the land and potential to deliver something exquisite, a giga on par with Leviathan would be a bit of a slap in the face. Especially when they went the extra mile with Banshee to use the terrain.
