Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 766: Haunt Has Risen from the Grave

Recommended Posts

KD could very well be getting an RMC this year. Source? The Cedar Point board. And keep in mind these guys always poke fun at KD fanboys. Apparently RMC's ally dropped a hint at RMC Hurler.

It's been a confirmed in-house project since the park opened for the season. Seriously.... can this rumor die already?

 

The hints that RMC themselves dropped was clear as day pointing at Hurler.

I have not seen RMC give any hints? Source? Or are you talking about the hints that Irvine Ondrey Engineering posted on fb about getting the Cedar Fair contract? Because you do know that IOE works with GCI as well as RMC, correct?

Either way they said it's a large project, and all signs point to Hurler. So no, it's not entirely in-house. What leads me to think it's RMC is them saying they're booked for 2017 along with GCI already working with BGW down south.

1. You want RMC Hurler

2. Large project confirmed

3. People in the CP thread said so

 

Guys he's right.

I hope you're serious because there's clear cut evidence as to Hurler getting a major renovation.

No one is doubting Hurler gets a renovation. We are questioning RMC's role in this renovation.

Fireworks are launched behind the waterpark, not behind the service road by I305.

Do you work at kings dominion?

 

Yes, I've been working I305 since 2013.

 

 

Ah, I see. You know what's going on in that little area? Many people claimed it was for fireworks (which was clearly debunked) and some claim it's for a project or something.

So ended up not going on Tuesday but are going tomorrow. How are Friday crowds? We will be doing early entry. How should we attack this park?

 

Volcano, Flight of Fear, Backlot, and Delirium are priorities. They have pretty bad capacity (or are new), so get crazy lines.

 

EDIT:

I don't know what is going on, but I know:

 

1.There's a service road that runs between it and I305. This road goes through behind the water park and ends around hurler/grizzly

2.There's a maintenance building EXTREMELY close to this area

 

This area is near a lot of the backstage, so I doubt it's an attraction.

They could be giving mean streak the iron horse treatment for all we know man.. So we all don't know for sure.

They said no, it's not Cedar Point.

When someone on IOE's facebook post said Cedar Point, they corrected him and mentioned it was for Cedar Fair, not necessarily Cedar Point. When someone replied with Hurler, they said they would post all the details when they are allowed to. So in the poster above's defense, all signs do point toward Hurler at KD. With that said, IOE does work with GCI, RMC, and other companies.

Has an addition of a single helix in the layout been ruled out? I'd love to see the reactions if that happens.

Ironically, that's the one project they admitted is not the case. So we do know for sure.

Actually no, it hasn't confirmed to be in-house. The hints that RMC themselves dropped was clear as day pointing at Hurler. And it's not just KD fanboys saying this. Even Cedar Point fanboys acknowledged that it's happening to KD's Hurler. It only makes sense with Hurler being closed this long.

For those who don't want to sit through a painful video, the relevant time is at 1:15.

 

" so, Hurler is going to be closed for the season. With those older wooden roller coasters sometimes they just require a little bit of extra maintenance. So it's hurlers turn to get that extra maintenance. We'll be doing extensive rehab on that, and our plan is to reopen it for the 2017 season."

Thank you! I was gonna just put the quote, but the source police wouldn't have found that acceptable.

One problem: that was months ago. This thing from IOE was just yesterday. Unless they say otherwise, all signs point to Hurler getting external treatment.

And they reminded everyone today that they do things other than PLCs for coasters.

 

Back story folks: Anne and Brian are not spring chickens to the hobby. Brian is from Pittsburgh, Anne from Michigan and a Cedar Point regular growing up. They've been on these intarweb forums for roughly 20 years and none of this would be considered secrets. Based on the clues given it is probably A) a Cedar Point ride B) not Mean Streak. That's a wide list of potential attractions. It could be Dragster or Maverick given that both have control systems which have been rumored to not work as well with full train capacity than with 4-5. It could be the skyride. It could be a more antiquated ride like Magnum or Gemini. It could be Windseeker (which some control changes could be significant to). Calm. Down.

They said "large" project, which means coaster.

I appreciate the feedback on which rides to hit. We made it here and are just waiting for 10 to roll around so that we can hit early entry. I guess it's Volcano and The Crypt today.

Best rows to make sure we ride today on the coasters?

I've been dying to ride i305 for ever.

Make sure to do Volcano in the front. It's not only the smoothest but the launch feels amazing in your face.

A) Possibly B) Doesn't mean it is a new ride even if it is. They've done work on existing and even antique rides (like the Kennywood Autorace).
