  1. Is there any reason why KD does not offer Fast Lane on several of their coasters?? Rebel Yell, Anaconda, Shockwave? I was surprised when I saw the list on the website for this year. Yet they offer it for flat rides like a wave swinger and Dodgem? I don't get it.


    Oftentimes, Dodgems can draw more of a line than Anaconda and even Rebel Yell. As for Shockwave, that ride has so many "specialties" that Fast Lane would almost detract from the ride. Also, Fast Lane can't be all coasters, this is probably KD's way of diversifying the lineup.

  2. Your layouts seem fine. I especially like the b&m inverts. You mentioned scenery is not important to you. However, scenery is one of the key points of a ride. It really help the realism of the ride and even the layout. Just something as simple as a station and a themed queue would give opportunities for fly-bys, more realistic elements,etc. Great layouts, would be even better with a few thematic elements (hope I worded that correctly).

  3. I am a central Virginia native, and if I could suggest for food, here's what they'd be:



    If you absolutely want to stay close to the highway, Ashland has some great food options that have great small town charm, Trackside Grill and The Ironhorse are great. If you really want great food and are willing to go a few more miles, Buz and Ned's barbecue is great.Q barbecue is a local chai. With some great options as well. However, there is this new place that is a bit out of the way (still only around 5 min. Off the highway) called Jake's Place. He renovated an old gas station into a full service restaurant and the place has gotten rave reviews. Here are the links to my favorite stops:








    Ashland is around 10 min. Away from KD, but if you're a foodie there are a million places in downtown Richmond to eat (like chuck said). Since you mentioned lunch for KD, any place in Ashland would be my reccomendations.

  4. This park's intriguing to me. It uses the average Six Flags rides (B&M Invert, Hyper, RMC, etc.),and seems more like a "Showcase of common or popular six flags rides bonded into a park", to me. If that's what you're going for, then great, but if not I have a few suggestions. First, if you're going to create an (example..) RMC hybrid, change something about it (color scheme, name layout,..), like you did with the Invert. Also, for a park with custom scenery, I feel as though there should be more of it. Otherwise, great park overall, I'm excited to see what happens next.

  5. ^ Then again I kind of like the mystery of what is really down there that they project when viewed in certain pictures. Makes me want to go walking through the woods and see what I can find.


    Its the kind of park I would spend hours in just looking at the map without removing scenery, ride a few rides then either remove the trees so I can finally see everything or just leave the mystery alone and close the game. Just happy to have enjoyed what I did see.


    LOL, did that make any sense at all?


    That's exactly what I was going for when designing this park. Some of the screenshots I took when designing this park were from bad angles, but I understand where you're coming from with the foliage.


    The foliage seems a bit too heavy. Allow guests to see the rides and don't hide them with really heavy trees all the time.

    I like the woodie a lot though, I can't wait to see more.


    I was trying to make a tree-lined park, but I guess I added a bit too much. There's going to be a lot of trees for the next few updates, but changes can happen...


    The particular area I started out with I wanted to make a bit more... off.. from the rest of the park. Like a memory of the theme parks of old.


    It looks pretty fantastic! Though there are only a few rides, the rides you have fit pretty well together and look really nice. It's also good you have lots of room for expansion!




    Update will be posted soon.

  6. I've been playing RCT2 forever now and finally figured out how to transfer screenshots to be able to post them. I am by no means creating NE worthy parks here, but I'm having fun with this one and hope you enjoy following it. I'll post one or two updates a week, depending on how things go outside of TPR (What?). This is a timeline park that started in 1977. It's located in Deleware and is called Lake Hannover. Also note, park updates may be multiple years (1978-1980, for example).


    From the owner:


    Lake Hannover is a family owned park in the heart of Deleware. We here at Hannover Amusements value a great experience for both family and friends, and believe Lake Hannover is at the epicenter of fun and thrilling. Lake Hannover will be opening in spring 1977 with three major attractions, including a Waveswinger ride by Zierer, a classic "Whip" ride, purchased from a failing park, and the star of the show, a wooden roller coaster called High Roller. Also included is an information station, a beautiful entrance, and a delicious place to eat near the pathway to High Roller. Guests can experience the great forests around Deleware. The management here at Lake Hannover is thrilled to open this exciting new place.


    To start things off, here's a shot of most of the park at this time.


    Another view, showcasing most of the available land.


    This coaster, manufactured by PTC, sends guest flying through the woods at speeds upwards of 45 mph, and provides scenic views.


    The majority of High Roller's layout...


    Here are the two flat rides, Waveswinger and Whip.


    The park entrance...



    Land has been cleared near the front of the park... wonder what it could be?


    Comments/ criticism appreciated!

  7. Can anyone tell me which places at Kings Dominion use the meal plan and is it worth the money for that pass. We've had passes for years but never had the meal plan and considering it this upcoming season. The website has little to no information on what places take it. Thanks.

    I wouldn't get it. We've been pass holders and when we eat at the park, we go to the parking lot where we can eat better food for free! As for places, I think the major restaurants offer it (i.e. Hungry hippo)


    Hershey also looks amazing.


    As far as KD not offering any more than 3-4 re rideable coasters, that doesn't bother me. I usually go to a new park, hit everything, and bounce between 2-3 different rides at night, once I have a few beers in me. I'd like to get in at least ten rides on I-305 if I end up going there. The standard corporate feel doesn't bother me. KI is very similar to KD from what I hear and KI is probably my favorite park. Fast lane /flash pass will be mandatory for all parks.



    Certain parts of the park feel very un-corporate. As for the trip, any way you could get to Hershey, KD? That'd be my recommendation. If not, go to KD and BGW. I prefer KD, but I enjoy thrills more than theming.

  8. Dale at I305. During slow days with one train running, he keeps the line energized with a comedy routine. For example (even though these are classic jokes):


    I like to take the toll roads into work, but I don't understand why they call it a freeway, it's expensive!


    That type of thing. They may not be roll on the floor funny, but he really does lighten the mood.

  9. It Was running well! They were actually running 6 car trains when I went, so I wasn't able to see what it was like with 5. I found that when I rode in the front, it was definitely a solid ride. I'd rank it better than i305, just because I enjoy the layout more. I was also surprised at the theming. Not BGW quality, but extremely good for Six Flags. That also went for the whole park.
