  1. oh wait it's a Cedar Fair park now. they probably painted it red and renamed it "Spinning Jungle Chair Zone"
  2. yeah, i do love the Grizzly. it was even better back before they tore down half the trees in the area to build the Hurler. Back then it really felt like a roller coaster set deep inside a dense forest, and at night it was so dark. Hurler is so bad it even managed to make OTHER rides less good.
  3. it was never super obvious, but it used to at least make sense.
  4. golden ticket awards are super dumb? i think everyone knows i305 is one of the top 3 to 5 coasters in the world.
  5. well, take your pick - accurate-looking, or working. can't have both at that scale.
  6. any chance you could modify his profile so his signature and location don't mention masturbation and oral sex?
  7. i rode it the day it opened. it was a disappointment from day one. the video of Mike Myers telling you how the coaster restraints work was probably the best part, and that is really saying something. the layout is boring and not fun. and Paramount didn't take care of it, which only made things worse. part of the reason the layout is so weird is because originally they were going to have rock bands play concerts on a stage in the wide open area between the lift hill and the back turnaround. obviously that never came to pass, but the coaster's dumb layout was designed to accommodate that idea.
  8. no way. even before track started showing up, there were lots of rumors of a large coaster being added to KD. Also a lot of land clearing, and other signs. This is NOTHING like that.
  9. roller coasters are planned years in advance and i'm preeeeetty sure BGW and KD don't check with each other before installing new rides.
  10. well, here's hoping you avoid it in the future, since you hate it so much.
  11. Oh god lighten up and relax a little. I have no idea how old you are but if you're over 21 go have a drink or 12. eh, you were the one typing in all caps and extra large letters. i was merely saying i disagree. you got all "YOU PEOPLE" up in here. i'm currently sipping a Palo Santo Marron. more of a winter beer, really, but quite tasty any time of year. again, just my opinion.
  12. Sure there is. Time and time again people boldly claim that RMC can't make (insert coaster here) into a great ride. So far they've been wrong 100% of the time. I see where coasterfreak101 is coming from by saying that he'd rather roll the dice on a new ride (even though we disagree) but even he's not claiming that whatever RMC came up with wouldn't be great (even if it's not great compared to other RMC's it would still be great). So yes, when so many people have made the same claim with great authority over and over again and been wrong every single time then it's totally understandable to lose patience with such a ridiculous complaint with no reasoning behind it. You're seriously kidding me if you're comparing Maverick to Hurler's layout. I believe he's referring to what RMC could do with Hurler and not Hurler in it's current form. He brings up an excellent point. sorry bud, i still disagree with your opinion, and i still think that's not a reason for you to be a dick about it.
  13. Once again... RMC has proven enthusiasts wrong time and time again with this same complaint. Do you people ever learn? i simply disagree with your opinion that RMC can make Hurler into a great ride. that is no reason to get all "you people" obnoxious about it.
  14. Hurler was always lame and uninspired. it just wasn't as unbearably rough until the maintenence got out of hand.
  15. new coaster. Hurler's layout is lame and boring and RMC can't fix that. i mean .. in order to make Hurler awesome, you'd have to do so much that you might as well start from scratch in my opinion.
  16. had a GREAT day at the park yesterday! it was indescribably hot. like, i was worried i305 might melt hot. not the wheels -- the steel beams. it held up, though. man, it was running fast and intense. gave some of the most intense rides i've ever had on it. aaand my daughter rode Avalanche and Backlot Stunt Coaster for the first time. she *loved* Avalanche. did not care for Backlot. ( i think it threw her head around too much). And at the end of a full day of walking around, riding stuff, playing in the water park, and just generally subjecting ourselves to being seared and sauteed on an asphalt skillet, my son Mal still had the energy to rock out when his jam came on.

  17. are we allowed to bring empty water bottles in to the park to fill at water fountains?
  18. god help me, i'm going to KD tomorrow. weather says it will be 100 degrees. the heat index is going to be about 130. UV index 10 out of 10. the line for white water canyon is gonna be 3 hours, isn't it?
  19. in a seated position or standing position, a beyond vertical launch would create G-forces sending blood into the brain, similar to negative G's. this is dangerous over about 2 Gs, and can cause aneurysms or death. (the human body is much better at withstanding positive Gs, that is, forces that push blood away from the brain). a greater than 90 degree launch would be cool for a flying coaster, though.
  20. well, i'll make no argument that adding blue food coloring to vanilla ice cream is the best anything, but ye olde Smurf Ice Cream at Kings Dominion was always fun. Can you get Poutine at Canada's Wonderland? or the "New France" area at BGW? i think i'd probably vote for that.
  21. i read a translated version of their trip report lined in the original post. i'm really glad you guys liked Kings Dominion and Intimidator 305 so much! it really is a ride that must be experienced first hand to be fully appreciated, isn't it? you didn't mention Flight of Fear in your trip report - you guys didn't miss it, did you? personally i think it's pretty fun, but i suppose compared to the dozens of world class coasters you guys have been experiencing on this journey, maybe it just wasn't super noteworthy. understandable. Busch Gardens Williamsburg is a really special place as well. looks like a wonderful trip. cheers!
