  1. Dominator is not over a parking lot...They ripped it all out before they installed the ride. I chose Dominator because of the hang-time in the loop and the air-time coming off the mcbr and the small hill the leads back into the break after that. Also can't forget those strong positive-g's during the ride. There always seem to be a debate between if Dominator or Volcano is better at Kings Dominion. The ride ops at both rides would always ask which is better over the p.a. system and listen to guests respond. They also have Dominator vs. Volcano T-Shirts and Volcano and Dominator seems to be tied here atm 24/24.
  2. Yes, but I think that end has been given enough attention over the past few years. I mean, it is already the most crowded section of the park... There is really no big ride on the other side of the park in Old Virginia to attract a large crowd. I think it is time to give OVA some attention since that side of the park lacks!
  3. Great photos! Black Squid is at the park. Last time I saw it, a friend pointed it out to me. When riding Hurler, you can see the red vehicles of the ride sitting by the tracks of HSXLC for about 4 seconds near the top of the lift hill if you look to your left.
  4. Imo, KD should build the rumored B&M Hyper for 2010 alongside the Old Virginia section of the park. It would be nice to see a huge new coaster zooming all the way alongside the path. The problem is how many trees that need to be cleared to make room for it but I think it would be best now to start expanding towards I-95 a bit. Old Virginia hasn't been developed with any major attractions in years. From the map below... http://maps.live.com/default.aspx?v=2&FORM=LMLTCP&cp=37.837954~-77.444043&style=h&lvl=15&tilt=-90&dir=0&alt=-1000&phx=0&phy=0&phscl=1&encType=1 I can see the hyper using the former HSXLC station (hint hint, maybe there is a reason why they kept it there?) but instead of making a left turn to the launch like like HSXLC, it would 60 - 80 degree turn to the right a start climbing the lift hill. The lift hill on Diamondback and Behemoth look fairly steep so I think it should fit fine avoiding collision with Grizzly's not so over banked turn. The coasters first drop would then go right behind the Kings Dominion Theater, followed with a hill and turn around at the backstage area of the park like Behemoth. The rest of the layout could be determined by them successfully making it back into the station. If all those trees alongside I-95 were to clear, who couldn't resist paying a visit to the park seeing a this huge massing coaster B&M coaster by the interstate? I can't wait to see what the park has planned.
  5. Volcano actually uses 3 trains, but Kings Dominion has this policy to run 1 train on every coaster when it starts raining... Oh, and the new KD sign is actually in the center. From the photo it just looks like you weren't standing at the center when you took the photo.
  6. Most have been painted. You can tell by looking at this picture. The supports that are faded blue have not been painted yet. http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee18/kdaddict804/KD/DSC03162.jpg?t=1211337815 The most noticeable ones I can see are the cobra roll supports.
  7. All of these are great photos. I'm going to assume all of the work will be done by Saturday. The weather is supposed to be nice for the remainder of the week. Saturday is going to be extremely busy due to the fact that it is Memorial Day weekend and Dominator and WaterWorks will be open for the season. Daily operation also begins this weekend. I am so ready to ride Dominator. Looks like the framework on the trains also are not all assembled onto it yet.
  8. WOW! Dominator looks amazing. I can't wait to ride this thing on Saturday!
  9. The Batman symbols are no longer there. I believe the seats are brand new.
  10. I will be there tomorrow. I will record the testing of it. (if it even tests)
  11. I was too bullied and harassed for being gay during 1st block. I had a t-shirt I made that everyone signed. They were throwing stuff at me during study block and calling me names. I ignored them as best as I could. I can't believe these people. Some person who I didn't know reported it to the office as they witnessed I was being bullied and harassed by about 6-8 people. So I was called down to the office during 4th block to talk to the assistant principal. My friends were all so upset about it this morning. The office will get them on Monday.
  12. Do you support? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc9k7WkdXlU
