Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 765: Jungle X-Pedition area & Tumbili 4D Spin Coaster announced!

Recommended Posts

^^ It was sort of misty all morning, and while I've never ridden Dominator before, I will say it was running pretty fast for a B&M floorless!

 

As for the rest of the park, we had no waits all day which was awesome Rebel Yell was running pretty smooth, and we got to ride Grizzly in the back row at 10:30 at night. That was actual insanity. Worst ride of the day was either anaconda or backlot. Anaconda was actually a good layout, but my shoulders hurt, and backlot did nothing for me. Best ride of the day was of course I305! It's hands down the most intense thing I've ever ridden (and yes, I've ridden Skyrush multiple times) and riding it in the back row at night was awesome! Volcano's hang time shocked the hell out of me lol. Only downside to the day was that the view from the eiffel tower was crap both times we went up.

^Dominator cold is also weird. That loop lasts so long!

 

^^B&M Standups offer more sophisticated layout and transitions, but I'll take Shockwave over them.

 

I agree, however, Vortex @ CGA was a lot worse for me than Shockwave was.

I think Kings Dominion is getting a 500 foot Polar Coaster for 2017.

It may be due to the fact that I'm currently a long way away from sober but this post made me literally laugh out loud.

Looking at going to Haunt Friday, October 9th. Is there any reason the park is open what are the usual Saturday Haunt hours this particular Friday? All the other Friday's are 7-12 but this is 10:30-midnight. It seems like it would be a good day for low daytime riding crowds and lower Haunt crowds being a Friday, but is there any reason it's open all day? A special event I don't know about?

^Should I anticipate larger crowds because of the holiday the following Monday and longer hours, or comparable to most Fridays?

I'm trying to determine if this is the best day to go for a long day of riding and decent lines for Haunt mazes as I'm somewhat flexible in my schedule.

^If you get there early enough, you should have no problem with lines. Last time I went to Haunt two years ago, my friends and I had no problem re-riding most of the rides there until 7 or 8, that's when it starts to get crowded. If worse comes to worst and you got extra money, there's always Fast Lane.

Kings Dominion won't be opening tonight due to the bad weather, but they're planning to keep their Saturday and Sunday schedules (but that could change, too).

 

Just a heads up.

I could be mistaken, but I remember hearing that FoF is closed for Haunt (they're using that building for one of the Haunt attractions).

 

FOF is usually open during Haunt until 5 or 6, then it gets shut down for the Haunt attraction. Same deal with Hurler I believe.

^Club Blood is located in the Hurler turnaround, so, yep, no hurlin' during Haunt. I hope that Lockout is better than the "space alien" maze that used to be in the FOF queue.

In few days I'll be ordering a 2016 Platinum pass. Looking on the website it says Platinum passes include early entry--does KD have early entry? Is this separate from the 30 minute early entry for Dominator that day ticket guests have access to?

 

Speaking of, looking at using the free 2015 visit on Friday. With the park opening at 10:30, is the Dominator early entry still valid during Haunt? Thanks everyone.

^Passholder early entry usually gets you Volcano and I305 before regular ticketed guests.

Fantastic, thanks!

 

For anyone that knows, does a 2016 platinum pass with dining include 2 meals at all CF parks, or just KD? If it includes all its a great deal as I'm looking at doing a Cedar Point/Kings Islamd trip in the summer.

Well that's lame. LOL Carowinds have a haunt in the middle of their Hurler turnaround and it's still open during Haunt season smh
