Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

^^ toper track is pretty awesome though, and anyone who's been on a coaster with it will attest to that. With topper track, they could take the brakes off Hurler and it would be a pretty fun little ride again.

 

I know you say your pipe dream is for a double RMC mega conversion, but I doubt anything will happen to Hurler other than topper or demolition, if they even bother to do anything at all.

 

Grizzly is still a great ride, and exactly what a rough old classic woodies is supposed to be, so I'd doubt anything will be happening to that coaster for a long time, if ever.

 

I dunno. Colossus at SFMM was also considered a "classic".

To six flags no. But were talking about a Cedar Fair park. You may not get a RMC, but you get a clean park, nice atmosphere, and great operations. You KD guys are spoiled. You have a nice park. Appreciate it. It could be Daren Lake or the Great Escape

Yeah but an RMC would make it even nicer. But I do have to agree that Kings Dominion is definitely one of the nicer Cedar Fair parks. I think ultimately it's going to be like Knott's Berry Farm or Dollywood where it's a well themed, family friendly park that still excels in the trill category.

And an RMC would make any park better, and help out a park that actually needs the boost. KD is doing fine.

I'm pretty sure SFMM, SFFT, and Dollywood were doing fine before getting RMCs.

Yeah, no. SFFT had one legitimate moment of strong airtime in the entire park before Iron Rattler, and that was on a mine train.

As for SFMM, they didn't have much airtime either.

I see your point about Dollywood, but they're still getting improved by getting Lightning Rod.

 

Plus, getting the Iron Horse treatment is generally always an improvement. Even if the wooden coaster it replaced was decent and not terribly rough or boring, an I-box conversion is still going to be better.

 

Have you ridden an RMC?

 

Even KD would be better with an RMC, even if it was fine already.

I meant it in a sense that KD should get an RMC even though they have a good coaster lineup. And no, I haven't ridden an RMC yet but I'm trying to go to Dollywood next year to ride Lightning Rod.

 

But I do have to say that the treatment shouldn't go to really good wooden coasters. Rides like The Beast or El Toro wouldn't be the same with it.

Yeah, I'd be against RMC in either of those cases. Although I agree that any park that can get RMC on a mediocre woodie should. El Toro, The Beast, etc aren't mediocre

RMC beast would be the best ride on earth.

 

RMC Hurler/Grizzly would be pretty close.

 

Do you really think there's any chance of that happening?

 

Possibly.

You shouldn't.

 

Honestly, this thread right now is pretty painful to read. I know, we all want a new coaster at KD very very badly. The reality is, the next coaster will probably come in 2017 and it will be a B&M of some sort. That's even if we get one in 2017. KD has a really solid lineup already, and is quickly becoming CF's most aesthetically pleasing, family friendly parks.

As much as I'm not a fan of them, it will probably be a wing rider. Launched wing rider might be more palpable though.

Tbh I wish Kd would just get a new entrance and tidy up the park a bit more. Also if anyone hasn't noticed, near dominator there appears to be "moving bricks" on the ground and i've seen people trip because of them.

 

I don't want them to copy Cedar Point or Carowinds. It needs to be unique to the park.
