Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

What a massive oversight on Intamin's part...how does something like that get through to construction without an engineer thinking "you know, maybe we should stick an extra support or two there"? You'd think they would learn their lesson after all the issues they've had in the past with under-supported rides (Xcelerator and Wicked Twister come to mind).

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.

^What I was told was Adena sorta screwed up the alignment. So it could once again be joint responsibility between the engineers and the people building it. I honestly wasn't told a whole bunch about it, but that was the general idea of what I was told.

No one can confirm nor deny the addition of trims yet. They have not been added yet, if at all. The only thing that is confirmed at the moment is the existence of new hardware on the drop, currently it is not affecting the ride's performance.

Is I305 really getting trims or is everybody jumping to conclusions again?

Jumping to conclusions. It's very entertaining, actually...

Safe to say KD will get a new coaster this weekend

 

The only good thing that could come out of this is they remove the trims from the 75ft hill.

 

I wonder if there is gonna be a sale on all the merch. that says 90+ mph

 

It was a fun 2 months while it lasted.

How do you figure? Intamin fabricated and Adena constructed the ride about 2 months ago now. I really don't see how any issues the ride is already having is the fault of anyone else.

People can freak out over nothing. That picture with the crane could have been taken anytime between January and March. When someone actually rides it and it slows down on the drop, then I will believe it. And even with that I will probably have to ride it my self.

I want to say, we should of known something like this was going to happen.

I mean I've seen tons of people on here talking about black/greying out. I can only imagine the reactions of the GP after experiencing a blackout.

Look what happened to Goliath at SFMM.
