  1. I predict that in addition to RMC Hurler, the Apple Turnover may return as either a refurbished or newer Enterprise model! There may also be a renovation to Candy Apple Grove with a few more flat ride additions, making 8/16 the "Biggest Announcement in KD's history!"
  2. It looks like Busch Gardens Williamsburg filed permits for a 315 ft. attraction that may likeley be a coaster. If so, it would surpass Intimidator 305's maximum 305 ft. height and break the record as Virginia's tallest coaster! I'm skeptical about the intensity of the newly propsosed ride and curious about what KD has up its sleeve for 2018.
  3. There is a possibilty that the RMC version of Cyclone for 2018 could be themed to The Joker, like the RMC at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. It would not be the best option since the park has two other Joker rides, but this is Six Flags!
  4. I'll visit my home park, Kings Dominion, for either its Passholder Preview Night or opening day on March 25th! I may possibly visit Six Flags Great Adventure this spring and will probably make a trip to Busch Gardens Williamsburg this summer.
  5. I'm lucky to have Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens Williamsburg as my two home parks! Kings Dominion: 1. Intiminator 305 2. Dominator 3. Flight of Fear 4. Volcano: The Blast Coaster 5. Rebel Yell 6. Grizzly 7. Backlot Stunt Coaster 8. Avalanche 9. Anaconda 10. Woodstalk Express (Scooby Doo) 11. Richochet 12. Great Pumpkin Coaster (Taxi Jam) Busch Gardens Williamsburg: 1. Apollo's Chariot 2. Verbolten 3. Alpengeist 4. Griffon 5. Loch Ness Monster 6. Grover's Alpine Express *(Tempesto and InvadR will change my rankings.)
  6. I think that you just take the difference between the gold price and the Platinum price. Thanks for letting me know! Helped a lot!
  7. Sorry to get off topic, but does anyone know how much it costs to upgrade from a Gold Season Pass to Platinum? I currently own a Gold Season Pass @Kings Dominion, but I'm planning on visting Kings Island, the sister park!
  8. I once saw the regular line shorter than the Fast Lane line for Windseeker!
  9. What'd Hurler ever do to you? It's true, some rides do unpleasant things to people. However, some here seem to become blinded to any attributes of a ride and just give up. If you're on a park-hopping marathon, that's often the way to go, but if you're stuck mostly going to your local park I can't see giving up that easily. Fact is though, hurler even at its most vicious never hurt me much, while 4 other rides at the park have. Grizzly and Rebel Yell were terrible in 2008; I actually swore off RY for 2 months before coming back and learning what to do. I'll give 'em one thing this year though: they've been racing Rebel Yell every day, all day from what I've seen. It really is twice the coaster when they get it just right. I've seen only one side operating on Rebel Yell a couple times this year, but they've definitely raced both sides much more often lately! However, I'm really disappointed that they haven't been lighting up the classic chasing lights, which returned for KD's 40th anniversary in 2014!
  10. Kᗪ Golden Years has stated that they created this as an April Fools joke with no affiliation with Kings ᗪominion.
  11. This actually wasn't a rollback, the train didn't have enough speed to reach the first hill. We were luckily only there for about 20 minutes and all the lights were turned on.
  12. Rode Flight of Fear today and the launch failed, so our train was stuck at ground level right before the first hill/cobra roll. The ride operators and maintenance crew pushed our train backwards into the station for us to exit. They let us stay in front of the line once we exited, so I hopped back on and it worked fine. I had to wait for it to test a few cycles.
  13. Rebel Yell is one of the best coasters at Kings Dominion! It's smooth, fun, and full of airtime hills. It's amazing how it races and lines up with the midway of Candy Apple Grove!
  14. Here's some last photos of Shockwave I took from back in July. It actually rained and closed right before I was going to ride it that day. Don't worry though, I rode it the week afterwards, right before it closed for good! Bye Bye Kings ᗪominion. I already miss you so much! Can't wait until March, 25 and bring on Delirium!
  15. Verbolten @ Busch Gardens Williamsburg during Christmas Town!
  16. I passed by Kings ᗪominion today and saw the Eiffel Tower decorated for Christmas! Sorry to get off topic.
  17. I've noticed the water in the Shenandoah Lumber Company log flume has been really yucky lately and the ride looks like it hasn't been well taken care of.
  18. I think Delirium is a perfect addition for Kings Dominion! I really enjoyed MaxAir when I rode it at Cedar Point and have always thought it would be amazing if Kings Dominion ever added a Pendulum - style ride in Candy Apple Grove. I doubted it would ever actually happen, considering MaxAir was installed a decade ago and is the most recent ride of its type at a major amusement park. As much as I would love a new coaster for 2016 at Kings Dominion, not many parks have Pendulums and I think it's a real treat for Kings Dominion to receive one!
  19. Rather have a B&M. Heck, Shockwave is the only thing worse than a Vekoma. Ok . . . here you go! Seriously, KD had like what? 3 true family coasters? Iv'e always wondered why Parmount never did a major kid's area expansion or added a Jr. Vekoma at Kings Dominion, such as Rugrats Runaway Raptor at Kings Island and Carowinds or Silver Streak at Canada's Wonderland. Did Parmount ever plan this, however sold out to Cedar Fair before they ever made way to the project? Nickelodeon Universe at Kings Island, Nickelodeon Central at Carowinds, and Kidzville at Canada's Wonderland were all decent renovations, however Kidzville at Kings Dominion was never updated with new rides after its opening and Nickelodeon Central remained with only 3 attractions. (Scooby Doo and The Haunted Mansion being the only exception).

  21. Kings Dominion has bins for free use on all their major coasters and most of their flat rides. They let you bring your items with you on the top of the Eiffel Tower, bring them with you on the Americana ferris wheel gondolas, place them on the side of the Bad Apple, and place them on the seats of the antique cars as you ride Blue Ridge Tollway. There's no reason for lockers, unless you plan on going to Soak City and maybe for White Water Canyon.
