MASON, Ohio -- Firehawk will fly one last time this weekend.
Fans can ride Kings Island's "flying coaster" for the last time Oct. 28. Park officials made the highly-anticipated announcement last month that they would bid farewell to Firehawk, which has "simply reached the end of its service life."
Three operating days. That's all the time that Firehawk has left before the steel roller coaster gives its last rides this weekend. #RIPFirehawk #KIFirehawk #FirehawkFinalFlights pic.twitter.com/mXoa9UOTFv

So, what's next? Will the park get its first giant, 300-feet tall giga coaster? Sister park Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, has one, but Kings Island does not.
Kings Island filed for a State of Ohio work permit over the summer, listing Bolliger and Mabillard as a construction company. The Swiss roller-coaster builder is the currently the top builder of massive coasters in the world. Kings Island will not comment on any future construction they may be doing at the park.
