Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

This is known, it has 2 supports on the lift and a truss support before the actual lift track (where it angles up for it

 

People are confused by the temp support, but the track looks bent on the webcam a bit, which is where i think his "Gap" is coming from, there's going to be a MUCH bigger gap between the station and that first tower when the lift is done

 

it's going to be a thing of beauty looking over the side and seeing over 300 feet of empty air under you at the top of that lift

Apparently the park sent out an email saying that Kings Dominion will open on March 22nd! Oh, did I say March? I meant May. Alpengeist, InvadR and Verbolten are open tomorrow. This comp

Yesterday, after my brief stop at SFA, I fought through the perpetual Northern Virginia I-95 traffic to check out Kings Dominion's Taste of the Season event - a COVID-blamed Winterfest-lite.  And beli

Too bad Volcano isn't still around. It was ahead of its time not only technologically, but it already had limited capacity down to a science.

THIS GRANTS SUCH PERSPECTIVE AS TO HOW BIG TIMMY IS

 

2 questions:

 

1. Why are you yelling?

 

2. Did you REALLY just refer to this coaster as "Timmy"?!?!?!

 

I'm not going to entertain your comment. I wrote in caps to express my excitement. Your analyzing things too much.

 

^^ I hope its topped off today that would be exciting.

Oh man, this is getting exciting! Just to clear things up for me though, does anybody know if I305 will incorporate the average Intamin looping coaster harness like the kind used on Storm Runner, Kingda Ka, Maverick,... or will it use the shoulder harnesses with the flexible straps? If anyone knows anything, your help would be appreciated.

A new Huge White Crane is up. I wonder if this one is for topping off the lift, as it appears to be bigger than the other two cranes.

Should we give it a name? How about Finish Line.

 

I'd stay peeled to the webcam for the rest of the day!

Even John Pagal (KD PR Manager) said he was not completely sure what the harnesses would be like, but most think they will be similar to the coaster in this youtube video.

I like the name, or considering its color and the events that went on over summer I'd go with Whyte Lightening.

Oh okay. Thanks man. That's what I thought they would use too, but I just wanted to check if anyone knew anything else. I'd be glad if they used those, at least there wouldn't be as much head banging! (if there is any.)

Webcam is getting too blurry to see anything. Hopefully, they will turn the spotlights on soon!

 

No movement on the Finish Line crane, they must be assembling the last two lift parts on the ground. I doubt any work tonight, they'll probably spend tomorrow getting it right and removing the temp support.

^Yeah, I'd say at this point you are right. But, who knows, I am still going to watch the webcam from time to time tonight.

Also, wouldn't be too good to take a video/picture for the blog of the "keystone" being assembled tonight. Oh, and maybe Novak can get a video of the topping-off.
