Inverted Coaster (Not Invertigo) pic on KI Website.

Kings Island: Why is there a picture of a non Kings Island coaster on their website?

There is a photo of an inverted coaster on the Rides and Attractions page of Kings Island website. http://visitkingsisland.com/attractions/index.cfm
It's on the left side of the page under a list of places to navigate to. This does not appear to be Invertigo or any coaster that is at the park. I'm wondering if anyone knows what coaster it is and why KI would post a picture of a coaster that is not at their park? This has had me perplexed for a while and I figured I may get the answer here.

Maybe a computer hacker? Mistake?

It could be the inverted at Carowinds. Not sure why they would use it on the Kings Island site. I wouldn't call it a big deal...perhaps an oversight by the web designer/webmaster.

First of all, it is Flight Deck- California's Great America.

Second of all, every park formally owned by paramont has thesame picture. Check this out:

Yeah, Cedar Fair is famous for putting the wrong pictures with their parks.

Yeah, all the time. Just like six flags. If you saw that commercial for Knott's a while back, like last year, they put in millennium force or something, I don't really remember.

Silver Dollar City did it a year or two ago. used a picture of State Fair area of Dollywood. knew someone in the picture and he said pic was Dollywood. had a good laugh when we showed him the SDC newsletter with the picture

Wait wait... If Cedar Fair ads put wrong rides on? Are they trying to attract more customers?

They probably just needed a good photo of a roller coaster and just recycled the same photo on their many websites.

Honestly, Eugene - I think it's nothing more than laziness.
