Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 766: Haunt Has Risen from the Grave

Recommended Posts

^ And what about, instead, a launched flyer? Wishful thinking!

a flyer at KD would be a dream come true. I would love that almost more than a hyper, cuz we got a hyper at BGW. And there isn't a B&M flyer till you get to SFOG or SFGAdv. So a flyer would be epic, a hyper would be epic, and I would be fine with a wing, as long as it has a wing over drop and a near miss.

 

If you mean a B&M Flyer, yes, they are far away. Batwing is a couple hours up the road.

of course I mean B&M! Batwing was fun, but no where near as good. A ride along the lines of Starry Sky Ripper or Tatsu would be fabulous here.

I recall reading somewhere the Matt Ouimet isn't a fan of flying coasters and that he won't be adding any new ones to any of his parks, but you never know.

 

Could anyone else back this up, or am I just making stuff up?

 

Gimme a link to that story.

 

Umm... the point of my post was that I didn't have a link to the story and I was wondering if someone else could back it up since I can't seem to find it. Like I said, I don't know for sure if he said that.

Kings dominion never received a large attraction in way too many years, yeah 40th anniversary was pretty big but a new roller coaster would be great (how about taking out the hurler? ) b&m flyer would be amazing for KD but another launched coaster i don't see happening, heading down to kings dominion next year!

Honestly, take the pretzel loop out, and flyers are rather boring. Wing Riders are more thrilling, and you don't spend 5 minutes face down in the brake run, trying to keep the pretzel you just ate from coming back up.

I actually like hurler better than grizzly because grizzly is just really slow paced, and hurler has more airtime and a better layout. So if I had to choose, I would take out grizzly. Also grizzly has really become hidden because of DA. So I say if they built a hyper, they should make the go kart area a plaza connecting grizzly with the rest of the world again, and also take out DA. Inthink that would also open up that area a lot.

Idk flyers are just kind of uncomfortable. It's just the position it's in it's really awkward in my opinion.

Cedar Fair seems to like to add one big B&M every year. Behemoth, Diamondback, Intimidator, Leviathan, GateKeeper, Banshee, and Fury 325. I bet that Valleyfair will get the next B&M in 2016, so I probably wouldn't expect a new coaster for KD until 2017. That is, assuming they go with B&M. Wait, of course they will!

 

My guess would be a Wing coaster of Floorless. Doubt they would add a Hyper, since it would get overshadowed by I305.

I really don't think valleyfair will get one next year. Kd is long overdue for a roller coaster. I think it's their turn.

The thing with leviathan is that it's SO much different than behemoth. But I think that kd needs to fill that hyper coaster space that they don't have (intimidator, behemoth, shambala)
Maybe tallest coaster with inversions. That would be a crowd pleaser.

I'm not sure if a coaster would be coming to Kings Dominion in 2016, because what about Canadas Wonderland and maybe Cedar point. Cedar Fair really should add more than one coaster per year.
The problem is how expensive Fury 325 is, plus the new entrance, and water park expansions in 3 or 4 of their parks do become a bit pricey once put together. I just wish we saw something coming in for their other parks.

I think Cedar Fair should add whatever they think a particular park and its guests need.

I just want to say that whatever they decide to put, I hope the package includes the repaving the parking lot. Good Grief, I've seen smaller parks with better parking spaces compares to Kings Dominion's lot.

 

As for seeing a possible design for a mega-sized coaster, how about this concept? Put the station in the area next to Boo Blasters and Avalanche and design the coaster like Magnum 200 that will go behind the amphitheater and run out to the unused, unpaved part of the parking lot. I'm sure they can make it a winged coaster and since the station would be located in Safari Village it'll be given a "birdy" name.

 

That's my take for 2016. What do all you riders and amusement park flyers think?

 

kINGS dOMINION - BETCHA YOU CAN'T DO IT ALL!!!

They did spend $145 million this year. It's under investor relations on the cedar fair website.
