Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

No offense, but RMC doesn't build beautiful coasters. They build ugly, mind blowing awesome coasters.

I don't care what she looks like. Is she fun the ride?

That's a question of taste

RMCs are beautiful. No. Matter. What.

I don't think you got it and your age isn't displayed so to be careful I'll just leave it as "agreed!"

Yesterday, after my brief stop at SFA, I fought through the perpetual Northern Virginia I-95 traffic to check out Kings Dominion's Taste of the Season event - a COVID-blamed Winterfest-lite.  And beli

Wait, there is actually going to be a safari-themed ride in Safari Village? Is that allowed? 🤣

My money, in all seriousness, is on Tiki Twirl.  CF already has a logo drawn up and everything.

Can someone get a pic of this land clearing?

weird. way too large an area for fireworks. the fact that it's right next to i305 in plain sight means it's probably not a storage facility. and it's way too far away to be a new ride.

 

i guess the optimist in me could say something like "well, it could be a turnaround for a big B&M ... " but i don't want to get my hopes up.

Could it possibly be for a water park expansion? I've never been to the park but from what I've seen in pics and maps, that area is not far from the existing water park.

 

 

*EDIT* I just checked googlemaps and the area is farther away from the water park than I originally thought, so never mind.

^Not to mention the park just got a water park expansion last year.

 

Honestly I think it's nothing more than just a storage building as others have said. It's right next to the maintenance road for most of the coasters in Safari Village so I doubt it's an attraction of any kind.

This is nowhere near anything and you guys aren't getting sh*t in that spot. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Not... getting... sh*t.

 

There's a closed roller coaster just sitting there this year which the park is hinting at being temporary, there are RMC rumors at Cedar Point and they just had GCI refurbish a coaster in California in the same chain. That's where I'd focus my attention if I were you.

^Agreed!

 

That being said, do you think Cedar Fair will RMC it? I can't imagine why they would close it this far ahead if it's simply the same as what they did with Ghostrider.

Does anybody remember how many projects RMC can take on in one year? It's four, isn't it?

 

At any rate, it doesn't seem like a simple GCI refurbish would solve all of the issues with Hurler... I mean, I could be wrong, not having ridden the new Ghostrider or Legend, but at least those coasters were better in the beginning than Hurler ever was. As such, an RMC treatment of Hurler DOES kind of make sense... Add to that the possibility of a custom wooden coaster at KI, and it's possible, at least, that three of RMC's projects for 2017 could be in the Cedar Fair chain! Even if it's a mix of GCI and RMC, at least Cedar Fair is starting to take improving their lackluster wooden coaster lineup a little more seriously, as that's long been one weak spot at their parks!

I would love to see an RMC hyper in the style of Skyrush (layout-wise).

 

I would love to see a unicorn that could fly that would give me hundred dollar bills every time I called it's name. You're not getting sh*t in that spot.

That would be amazing. A little unrealistic but still amazing. That would most likely be my new #1.

I was at the park Tuesday. I don't know if the Flyers have gotten better or if people saying they're "unsnappable" just don't know what they're doing. I find the KD flyers to be very easily snapped, to the point of being told to stop by the operator. Give them another shot.

 

Also has anyone been on the Carowinds Hurler since the GCI refurb? It's hard to imagine it was worth it, the layout just isn't that great.

They got a great addition this year. You have the most intense giga coaster on earth and they're taking the worst coaster in the park and making it good (though we don't know all the details) which is basically like getting a new coaster. Plus you're getting a new GCI an hour up the road.

 

Stop whining.

With KI getting a GCI and not a giga this year, there's hope for KD getting a good attraction this year and not getting screwed in the a** again.

If you ask me, Kings Dominion is still a better park than Kings Island even after Banshee, so just give KI some time to catch up.

Kings Island was the #16 most attended park in North America in 2015, so income wise, KI is actually the bigger money maker for Cedar Fair. They really don't need to "catch up."
