Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I'm very pleased with this addition. I also was hoping that the water park would be renamed, but those capsule floor drop slides are crazy! Glad to be getting them! Some mat racers also would've been nice too. Well this kills the rumors of shoot the curl leaving, right? Part of me wonders if they'll be announcing any more small stuff over the winter about next year. Hopefully they'll announce some cool fun, small things.

 

Yeah, those drop floor slides never get old.

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

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.

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.

The ride Ops won't let you reride i305 more than twice without getting out of your seat. If you want to continue riding after that then you have to walk around. I assume that's because of its intensity. ERT is better and very doable.

 

I've never even had an I305 op let me re-ride with an empty station.

I've gotten it once or twice, but even when it did happen, they wouldn't let me ride more than twice in a row without getting up and going back around.

 

And Maverick needs the i305 restraints! I don't get why they haven't installed them! Its probably just cuz of CF's relationship with intamin. But even so, that ride with those restraints is not a good combo.

 

Really? I've been able to get 4 rides in a row with out going around, one in the front row, 5th row, 10th row, and last row without going around. I had the opportunity for a 5th ride but decided to go meet up with some friends.

 

A month ago I rode I305 7 straight times in back seat left before someone got in line for that row and I actually had to move. Also, the restraints at 305 felt like I'd been thru-hiking for a week after 20 rides.

A question for anyone who might know, are Kings Dominion season passholders going to be getting the same pass renewal offer that other Cedar Fair park passholder seem to be getting? Has anyone received anything yet? I'd like to renew my Platinum pass and free stuff is always welcome.

You referring to a free fast lane plus or preview? Ive never seen it offered. If you notice the price difference, Kings Dominion tickets are even a little cheaper than Kings Island.

My Platinum Pass is the same price though

Anaconda used to be a fun ride for me ten years ago, now a days it's an ok ride and I still ride it every visit. Shockwave is a different story, I'd love to see that ride get torn down.

Shockwave just got a fresh shipment of parts from Canada's Wonderland, so I think it still has quite a bit of life left in it.

 

Would they do that? If I remember correctly, Kings Island's version (King Cobra) was sitting dismantled in a field for a few years... and then suddenly scrapped. I don't think they would have done that if they were planning on keeping any of their Togos around much longer. If it weren't for Shockwave's relatively new coat of paint, I'd assume it'd be on its way out with Skyrider.

 

If Anaconda does go, I bet they would put something else on the pond. I would hope, actually. I'm rather fond of flying over water like that.

Dream (but realistic) scenario: Dinasours Alive is removed in mid-2015 (since no one goes to it). Speculation on a wooden roller coaster begins. Plans appear for a 200 ft tall wooden roller coaster with inversions. People think it's Cedar Fair's first RMC coaster. People remember the rumored name for Fury 325, Centurion and see the name appearing. Wooden track with steel topper appears in the parking lot, all but confirming that it's an RMC wooden hyper. In August 2015, Kings Dominion officially announces Centurion, it's 15th roller coaster and the first wooden hyper since Son of Beast

 

210 feet tall

87 degree drop

3 inversions (inverted top hat, snake dive al a Storm Runner)

5,000+ feet of track

Plenty of over banks, tunnels, and airtime

Collides with Grizzly in areas

 

Becomes No.1 in the world wooden coaster in 2016

 

Anoter great option would be removing Anaconda and putting a launched wing coaster over the water.

my two kids (6 and 3) LOVE dinosaurs alive and we go every time. I mean maybe nobody you know goes to Dinosaurs Alive but maybe you're not the target audience.

 

the idea of a huge modern wooden coaster for KD, now that I can get behind.

I would not miss Anaconda if it goes. I would also like a Launched Wing Coaster over the water like Thunderbird! However I have this feeling our next coaster is going to be towards the front of the park with an entrance redo (like Cedar Point with Gatekeeper and now Carowinds with Fury 325).

I really doubt that all arrows would be going. Some of them are still amazing rides/historic rides.

Especially when most of them have been good, reliable, popular rides for years. The loopers I assume would be the first to go but at the same time, they seem to garner decent lines most days. It's not uncommon to see Vortex's line stretch past its queue at KI. How does Anaconda do?
