Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

^ Well, that was certainly a decent thing for the park to do. I wonder what page in the employee's manual the " What to do in the event of an earthquake" section was?

 

What's crazy is that in spite of that, people were complaining on their Facebook page that they wanted a refund. A REFUND! Seriously?!

What's funny is I had actually considered heading down to KD for a little while this morning before work. I'm not sure whether I would have still been there by 2, but it would have been pretty freaky to get caught on a ride during that. Just the 15 seconds I was still inside at home was terrifying wondering if the roof was going to cave in (before I ran outside). For reference, my house is 37 miles from the epicenter.

I don't think they should get a refund, because they opened back up most of the rides. Also, didn't they have 3 hours before the quake happened, they should've been able to ride quite of few rides

None exists... Logic just shouts "Ground is shaking... Shut the ride down!"

They have to evacuate the rides though - an earthquake could mess with a ride's foundation, making it unstable and unsafe.

They basically gave them a free ticket, what more could they want.

I know parks will give out return tickets sometimes when things like weather force them to close early but they didn't. They stayed open until their advertised closing time! Sure some rides didn't reopen but they got as many rides up as quickly as they could. Just another case of people wanting something for nothing.

^ I expect nothing less on a Facebook fan page.

 

The comments on KD's are always good for a laugh! Hurler is apparently several people's "joint." While Dominator "suxxx." And Intimidator 305 is "the ish."

I have no clue at all why the GP thinks Dominator sucks. It's the 2nd best ride there in my opinion. You would think the GP would love it because OMFG DEH LOOPZ.

 

Well Dominator has gotten a bit rougher over the past three years so I can understand their point.

 

Let's get back to speculating on what may be coming for 2012 shall we? My vote (and hope) is for a windseeker.

I personally think Dinosaurs Alive will be the only addition to KD this year. I see a flat coming to the park in 2013 which might be a windseeker. I don't see KD adding both in 2012.

 

Maybe they will follow Cedar Point this year and add DA and a minor upgrade to the waterpark.
