Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

I find it depressing how much people are whining on Facebook about Dilerium. One of the stupidest statements I saw was, "under paramount we were a dominant park now under cedar fair they hate us only give us peasant rides"

I think WoF, MiA, and Dorney want their "peasant" rides back. They would fit perfectly with the rest of the poor, insulting investments they've seen.

 

Whats going to happen to Shockwave? I thought it felt better than any B&M counterpart I've been on (Riddler, Mantis, Scorcher, and Green Lantern). Will it be relocated ala Sky Rider?

Okay, moron(s). Do you not realize that under Paramount (capitalization is your friend) this park was an asphalt ghetto for teens? It was trashy, ugly, tackily themed, and not nearly as pleasant as before 1993/after 2006. Now Cedar Fair has made it into one of the nicest looking amusement parks out there. Oh, and we also added Dominator, Intimidator, and Delerium, updated our aesthetics and waterpark, and opened a giant kids area while getting rid of garbage like Hypersonic XLC and Shockwave.

 

Preach it man, tell them that! Tbh the Gp is stupid in general and don't know how industry works.

Sometimes I think this about us enthusiasts as well.

Am I the only one who doesn't adore Volcano? I think it's launches are great, and so is the first inversion, but after that it's somewhat boring and repetitive. I enjoy Dominator much more than Volcano to be honest, and often feel like the minority in this community.

Barrel Rolls aren't fun?

I don't adore it really, to me Dominator is the best coaster at the park . Volcanos launches are really amazing though and IMO they are my favorite launches on a coaster. I think people think volcano is really good because they don't get to ride it as often because of the long lines it can get, and so they don't get bored of it as easily as they would get bored of a ride that is always a walk on.

One thing I love about Volcano is that it's one of the smoothest coasters I've ever been on. No rattling or headbang whatsoever. Dominator does fairly well at that but you still get some jerkiness.

I wish I could experience Volcano without a rattle...

Yeah, I've only ridden it in the back half because the line's already long enough, and I am not a patient guy, so no front row for me!

The line is the same travesty in any row. I'm wondering if Volcano should get four across seating.

I highly doubt the track is built to withstand those kinds of forces.

Possibly 16 rows like the impulse coasters? (The station would have to be altered).

Just came back from Kd, the park wasn't really that busy but it was still a little crowded by the volcano. Man I have a massive headache from rebel yell and hurler. I guess retracking won't save them

Rebel Yell can be VERY temperamental, trust me. Sometimes it can run butter smooth, sometimes it can hurt WORSE than Hurler! Hurler needs to be rebuilt from the bottom to the top. Maybe some Timberliners or Millennium Flyers MIGHT be able to save it? I really do love it's layout, but the turns are just...

Maybe those folks up in Hayden, Idaho can come down and work their magic...

The only turn that's awful is the first. The rest are all very bearable. Nothing even remotely close to wildcat lake compounce roughness.
