Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

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.

I did this because I love experiencing as many parks and coasters as possible. SFA isn't as bad as people make it out to be and Superman and Wild One are both worth going out of the way a bit for, but honestly you will probably regret not having more time at KD.

 

I have been to KD 4 times and I cut a day in half for SFA once, and the drive took much longer than expected because there is always construction and traffic between the two parks. The only way I would suggest cutting KD short for SFA is if you start at KD and feel satisfied enough to leave or if you visit KD enough that you know you will be back soon.

 

KD can be a half day park with Fast Lane Plus but it isn't nearly as enjoyable as a full day.

Thanks guys for posting the fb and twitter teasers for those of us who don't check that sort of thing! Trying to keep my hopes low in case it isn't an RMC but these latest teasers are encouraging. Where is the paint pictured/mentioned located? I must have missed that talk and browsed back a couple pages but didn't see it mentioned.

With all the teasing, why is it Snoopy that is being the spokes person? Is he just the most recognizable being related to the park and so they're using him in the campaign? I'm aware that the main Planet Snoopy is at the opposite end of the park, but could this possibly have something to do with a more family-related attraction? Or should I go rest my water-logged brain?

Well, Snoopy (And the rest of the Peanuts gang) is basically the park mascot, so it would make sense for him to be the spokesperson.

Anyone find it interesting that there are markers far outside Hurler,as well as the announcement date being different from all the other cedar fair parks (August 20th instead of the 18th)?

 

Where are those far out markers? They pictured Snoopy pointing at paint on the ground but I have no idea where that's located, or if there are any other marks.

He needs to get snoopin' over at Knotts where we are still waiting for our hyper

 

Oh, my sweet summer child. Spend some time at MIA or Great Escape and you'll be even more grateful for that awesome new GCI Ghostrider.

 

Honestly, if we're talking about single coasters at parks, I still would take Shivering Timbers over anything at Knotts!

I think a GCI is more likely. Why would they build a GCI at KI if they want to build a RMC at KD? CP still is up for grabs it seems, although they normally try to fake out the followers (RMC posts). That makes me believe they are going GCI too.

 

KD literally said they will not be GCI'ing Hurler.

Where? When they said they'll be doing it *in house*?

In their teaser they said no, it's not a GCI. If it was in house they wouldn't have done two weeks worth of teasing.

Maybe I have to watch it again but I don't recall the GM saying "it's not a GCI." He just read popular rumors and laughed.

 

I'll eat my words if I'm wrong but yes, they would tease it because they're investing money into an attraction regardless.

OMG. .that means no Engineers are even going to be looking at the plans!
