Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

He actually lost conciousness.

 

Are you serious!?

 

When I was there for ECB during the IntimidaTOUR, I greyed out every time but once that day. I rode it about 12 times because of ERT.

 

This was about the same story as mine. I rode probably about a dozen times, and only didn't black out maybe twice. Some were worse than others, as most times I would regain sight by the first bunny hill, but on others I wouldn't for what seemed like half-way through the ride. That being said, I had a slight cold that day, and was very tired out from walking and riding all day. Downing about 5 hotdogs and 3 beers at lunch didn't help things. I didn't black out on any other rides that day though, and hardly ever do. Intimidator is just a black out beast!

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

Kings Dominion is a very good park with some great rides but KD and BGW are headed in very opposite directions right now. Those things can both be true.

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.

Hoorah! Hopefully the drop stays clean and the ride is trimless before the third hill again. I'll be excited to ride it in that state again, and to see the reactions of those who only got to ride the trimmed version before.

This is great. The only thing the trim really killed was the first drop and 2nd hill, and the rest of the ride after that was still VERY good. So the only question that remains now is how much speed will be bled off in the first turn and how much airtime will remain on the 2nd hill.

i have only ridden the untrimmed version, so i don't have an informed opinion on how the trims affected it, but i believe in its untrimmed form, i305 has the greatest first drop of any coaster in the world. the lift hill is very fast and throws you out of your seat for some quality air as you crest the apex, and you remain airborne for the entire 300-foot decent.

^ I really need to get out and ride this thing. I have a feeling Millennium Force may still be my favorite first drop because the view is stunning and I305 doesn't really have that but then again... never know until you ride it.

^ Rebel Yell is great in spring but after hitting the summer almost unrideable... Grizzly, in my opinion, isw the most underated coaster in the park. Front seat is an epic, airtime filled ride!

 

Hurler could do a MS and burn for all I care...

^No, Cedar Fair decided against that I believe, they are both forwards now. It is still an awesome ride, and Grizzly really can't be beat for the night rides which are totally insane!

 

As long as the insane night rides don't end up putting us out of commission for the next day, I'm all for it. Unfortunately, the park closes at 6 on the weekdays we're there, I think.

 

What are the tips for economical or cost effective dining (aside from bringing a cooler in the trunk) these days?

Coming late to the thread also I'm glad to see the drop untamed again that was truly a thing of beauty being slung over the top and the out of your seat 300 foot free fall. I never rode the trimed version either so I can't judge that version, Millie's drop is still great and has a stunning view but I350 scared the total crap outta me lol

Coming in late to the thread... exactly what changes were made to the ride profile, besides the removal of the trims?

Forty-six inversions and a ring of fire was added.
