Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Hey everybody!

 

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Kings Dominion, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Hey everyone!

 

As a nice surprise this morning, I opened my email to find some brank spankin' new images from PKD's PR dept of Tomb Raider under construction.

 

You can see that the ride looks to be in place, and now they are building the elaborate theming around it.

 

Check it out:

Wait, there is actually going to be a safari-themed ride in Safari Village? Is that allowed? 🤣

My money, in all seriousness, is on Tiki Twirl.  CF already has a logo drawn up and everything.

He has a lot more history with Kings Dominion than just 2 years. You also forgot that Carnival and Winterfest also came in under him (I know they aren't rides, but I feel they are big improvements for

No way... PKD is getting the Italian Handbasket too. Way to think outside of the box there Paramount...

 

Watch, this version will be a flatride too. Next they'll get a round-up themed to Son of Beast, Ha!

Being that I know the nice people from PKD read our forums, let's wait until there is an official announcement from the park about any new 2006 attractions.

 

I haven't heard anything from them yet, and I know we'll get the press release when they are good and ready to annouce any new 2006 additions.
