When someone brings up Great Coasters International, the things that come to mind usually add up to the following; small wooden twisters, lifts topping 100 ft, top speeds averaging from 50-55 mph, and rather compact courses. Now that Knight Valley has placed its order, those guidelines are now thrown out the window.
Though little is known about a few of the details, Great Coasters International has released on their website some numbers on the ride as well as computer renderings of progress in the actual design. What resulted is something that just obliterates every GCI coaster currently in existance.
Following the usual twisted pre-lift, the 30 degree ascent will take riders up a hill to a height of 147 ft. From there, a sequence of three drops, or a triple drop, wheras, there is little to no gain in altitude between drops, will have riders plummet 131 ft, where it will reach a top speed of around 61 mph. The rest of the course that follows adds up to a high speed terrain course. The track keeps low to the ground, rising and falling with the contours of the land. A few hills deter from that, but overall, this coaster will not go above tree top height. Some features include banking upto 80 degrees, a station flythrough and flyby, and GCI's signature Millennium Flyer single bench articulating trains. The course shall have a total length of 4,817 ft. A castle like structure shall be placed near the top of the lift and the first descent. The new wooden coaster is set to debut with the park this year.
