Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I might be late in this discussion, but do we know where Dinosaurs Alive is going?

 

DA is going in the wooded area in between grizzly & WWC just behind the go-karts.I just hope they save enough room for an extra ride or two to go in the remaining woods since OV could use some flats or even a small coaster like a mine train or something along those lines.

 

Edit: Just a small update,the support columns for windseeker's seats recently arrived....photo's are up on KD's facebook.

^ I think the location will be good while riding to because on one side, you will have nothing but Virginia countryside views and on the opposite side there will be the whole park to look at. Also, it will give riders views that they've never seen before from that end of the park and all 4 300'+ attractions are spread out pretty well. FInally, this should give drivers on I-95 something to look at...

^Usually I see the ET first but this time to ME it was the Windseeker tower only because it is something I hadn't noticed before since they topped it off. It was really brightly lit up at night though, when I went back passed the park, so you definitely knew what it was. Now it is pretty cool to have ET, Windseeker Tower, Drop Zone, and I305 all towering in the sky.

That's good to know that they already have the lights on the tower. It's really going to light up that section of the park.

 

Also, that's good to know that the park has a good skyline from I-95 south towards Richmond because I know when you come from I-95 north towards D.C. you have to look through the trees to see Drop Tower and Intimidator 305. I'm sure you can see Windseeker from I-95 north since you can see the Eiffel Tower and that's further away from the interstate than Windseeker is.

 

I'm hoping the park or Coaster Crew does another update soon!

Even with the addition of I305 the first thing I see from I95 headingsouth is ET,it usually pops into view just south of the Camel church/Bowling Green exit.

I'm in Roanoke, VA and we got 8 inches of snow Sunday/Sunday night, which is more than a lot of our family from Ohio has gotten. Here is part of my backyard...

As far as the amusement parks go, I'm sure KD and BGW is thrilled with the mild weather on the eastern side of the state for Windseeker and Verbolten construction. It also helps them get other park improvements done such as pavers, paint, ride rehabs, ect.

 

Back to the original discussion though, Windseeker sure does look good in the KD skyline. 4 attractions over 300 ft. is quite impressive. One thing park visitors do notice about the height of the attractions.
