Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

Flat rides are always a great addition. This looks to be the Mondial revolution.

 

Mondial to CF: "Sorry about the Windseekers, here's a free Revolution for your troubles."

 

 

Judging by the 40 seat capacity and the lower height, I think you're right. However, even if most still prefer the Giant Frisbee, the Revolution is still pretty forceful and this should be a pretty good addition to the park.

There are 3 ride manufacturers that currently make this type of pendulum swing ride with a 40 passenger gondola.

 

Huss: Giant Frisbee - 40 / 50 passenger models (Cedar Point & Kings Island have the 50 passenger models).

 

Zamperla: Giant Discovery - 40 passenger gondola

 

Mondial: Revolution - 40 passenger gondola model (Canada's Wonderland)

 

Does anyone know which manufacturer is providing the ride for Kings Dominion for 2016?

The Frisbee XL is just a little bit larger and swings just a little bit higher than the Mondial one, 118 feet and 130 degrees at max swing. The Zamperla one goes even higher, 147 feet.

 

I'm pretty sure this one's going to be made by Mondial.

You honestly think they would go with Mondial, even with the windseeker issues?

What's the downtime (if any) like on Psyclone? Just because they have issues with Windseekers doesn't mean that they have issues with Mondial's other rides.

I know this has essentially already been said, but let me add to the adulation for this choice of addition! I love these types of rides, and while Delirium at KI wan't as amazing as maXair to me, it's still one of the best flats I've ridden! Very strong addition to KD, considering it was all but confirmed they'd be getting some kind of flat ride there!

There's more, Moser just built their first one in turkey, it look almost as big as the Zamperla one:

 

Also Intmin have there own. They even opened it a few years before Huss:

Although this could technically be a new a smaller version from Huss, Zamperla etc.. everything points to the Mondial Ride:

It's not unheard of that new rides have big reliability issues. What matters is how the manufacturer handles them, and if the customer feels taken care of in a good way.
