It seems as if Fury might get dethroned as the world's tallest non-launched coaster:

Word on the block is they are getting a 200+ foot addition for 2020, hyper is the first thing that comes to enthusiasts mind. It could be anything I suppose. But if KI is getting that giga, I don’t think CGA’s rumored 2020 addition will be B&M. B&Ms are quite expensive, can’t see cedar fair doing a giga and hyper both by B&M in the same year. Too expensive. And I’m almost certain CP is getting something exciting for 2020.

Has anyone else seen this? Coaster net did a video on it, and you can view the blog post on coaster nation here: https://coaster-nation.com/documents-indicate-new-coaster-coming-to-kings-island/.
I don't know if I personally believe it will be a giga, or if it is a giga, it won't be for 2020. With Cedar Point's 150th anniversary in 2020, they are most likely getting a coaster, or something big and exciting. I feel like with Kings Island in the same state (3 and a half hours away), a coaster as large as a giga may take Cedar Point's spotlight for their 150th celebration. Of course Kings Island opens a little over a month earlier than Cedar Point does, but still. And with CGA's rumored hyper, I feel like a giga and a hyper (if both are from B&M) would be a little over Cedar Fair's budget. You also have to take into account, Cedar Point is likely getting something in 2020. So I don't really know what to think about this whole thing.
