  1. Here's some new drama: Dollywood is overpriced as hell to get in...

     

    Well, it's a pretty small park with attendance so they kinda need the money. Pretty big investment for lightning rod. I think 1 day passes are ok at 60$ but no more. i usually compare them to snowboarding ticket prices.

     

     

    Why does it say I wrote that? I would never say that about Dollywood. Nicman, you're not using the quotes right and putting words in my mouth.

     

    This was too funny.

     

    I don't understand why people are giving DeafetistNation crap about being let down by Dollywood. I'm sure Dollywood is a great park. I haven't had the chance to visit yet, but I've been to Silver Dollar City plenty of times and I know the parks are similar. I believe Dollywood, like SDC, lacks a large collection of great thrill rides. They have some great coasters, but you can ride everything thrilling within a matter of 3-4 hours. It's not going to stop me from visiting every year and riding the coasters over and over again, but as someone who doesn't go to parks to see shows, visit shops and watch parades, I can see how he was disappointed. SDC and Dollywood have incredible atmospheres which add to the experience, but people call it "Steal Your Dollar City" for a reason and I'm sure Dollywood isn't too far off at $70 per ticket. The price hasn't deterred me from visiting SDC, but I think in 5-10 years, as the parks continue to expand, $70 for a one-day ticket is much more easily a justifiable price.

    I'm not a big show guy, especially a show themed to country-western music. That said, I still look forward to my first visit to Dollywood (hopefully in September). Food and atmosphere mixed with the right theming are more than enough to make up for what I don't like. I loved just walking around SDC and I'm sure I'll feel similar about DW.

  2. So I'm moving back across the country from Colorado to Virginia and I plan to stop off at Worlds of Fun for my first visit. Because of time restraints and traveling with a pet, I'll only be able to do the park this Saturday evening. Park calendar says that the park closes at midnight. If I get to the park at 6pm will I have to get a Fast Lane to do all the coasters?

    Thanks!

  3. ^Grizzly is phenomenal. That drop was one of the best I have been on.

     

    On a side note, the GP can choose between the name Battle Klash, InvadR, or Viking Raider. I think the choosing of the names are cool. Personally I'd go with Viking Raider or Battle Klash because I feel like they sound better than InvadR.

     

    I'm not thrilled about any of those names but I'll go with Battle Klash. If it weren't for KD already laying claim to the name, I think I'd like Berserker as a possibility.

  4. I haven't come out of my winter hibernation to being in roller coaster/theme park mode but this news perked me up some (and also being a former Va resident).

    I'm not a huge GCI guy and haven't been following this project at all (except for what was announced today). Are we thinking something like White Lightning but in a more woodsy setting?

  5. Well, another season comes and goes. See y'all in April for our yearly coaster speculation tradition.

     

    #PleaseKD2017

    Dear God no not again. I thought this thread had finally become tolerable for a bit. Let's not ruin that in April (or right now).

     

    Well, maybe there will be some sort of land clearing or activity to actually justify the speculation

     

    Anyway, it looks like I'll be moving back to Richmond in early 2016 so I look forward to returning to KD next year. I've missed I305 and I'm looking forward to Delirium!
