Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

One bit of evidence is Thunder Road, its removal at Carowinds makes Rebel Yell more unique. Removal of KD's Hurler would make Carowinds' version more unique.

 

I can promise you without a doubt that the parks don't care about this at all and neither does anyone else except a few random enthusiasts.

 

Well, if by "unique" you mean "especially bad," I agree. Hurler was good--once. Then it beat itself (and riders) to death. If they can redo the ride and make it good again for, say, more than one season, OK. If not, I say knock it down and replace it.

Unique = only one of, at least in the region, is what I meant. Although I still found the ride fun after it got more crazy.

 

I just noticed Mystic Timbers at KI. Well CF is still building woodies, looks to be a high speed close to the ground layout too. And working with GCI.

I don't even know where to begin with this post so I'll just slowly back away and hope nobody noticed I was here.

As is Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

I have never ridden Balder in Sweden, but tearing down Hurler and replacing it with a coaster similar to Balder would fit perfect in that plot! I know it won't happen, but just wishing... The POV of Balder looks so much fun!

This definitely won't happen but

Not to get too far away from this Hurler talk... but does anyone in this thread think taking a detour to SFA for a few hours in the morning (10am to noon or 1) would be worth it if it cut into my time at KD? I fly into DC early in the morning on Saturday 8/27 and was going to give KD the full day, but all the Virginia parks are new to me so, input appreciated.

 

I'm not really into chasing credits anymore and nothing at SFA really seems worthwhile (I've been on SFNE's Bizarro), but I know people here have opinions.

This is a no brainer - No. Don't waste even 2 more minutes contemplating visiting SFA. Go forth and enjoy KD which is better in every single way!

If you're burnt out on KD and SFA is new ground for you, then SFA can be a nice change, it's not a terrible park. In your case, if you had 2 days then that plan would work on 1 of the days. As it is, just not worth the trouble, unless there's a specific ride there you want to dash in and ride. I was up in that direction yesterday and considered going up there and just couldn't get excited about it, having already been to SFA 5 times in the last 2 years.

If there was enough time, stopping at Six Flags America for a couple hours for Wild One, Roar (there was even more re-tracking so there's no excuses), Superman, Batwing and Joker's Jinx would be a good idea. But the rest of the coasters aren't interesting and their flat rides are pretty generic. Also, it would only be genuinely enjoyable if it was before the Summer season.
