Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

KD's not gonna call a press event for their park's 2017 announcements and leave out the major capital expenditure for next year, especially since that expenditure would be desired to be open in 7 months time and nothing has happened there as of right now.

 

This.

I am just saying... Canada's Wonderland has yet to make their 2017 capital investment announcement... the park did confirm that this is due to external factors when they responded to a question on their Facebook page.

 

That being said, we have seen a lot of land clearing and such being done around The Great Canadian Mindbuster coaster... I have a strong belief that maybe, just maybe, we will be seeing 3 RMC projects this year.

 

Nevertheless, I am excited to see what Canada's Wonderland announcement will be!

 

Here's to hoping that Canada's Wonderland, Cedar Point and Kings Dominion will be seeing RMC this year...

I see nobody is responding to my questions regarding their blatant tease of more to come, however... I'm not disagreeing that 2017 is unlikely for a new coaster at KD, but to just ignore what KD themselves have indicated, regarding more news to come, is a bit myopic...

there's Really More Coming.

 

This needs to be talked about. It was the last image after the announcement. This is the tag line they used. With only 1 coaster for cedar fair in 2017, it does not make sense. They have been doing amazing in quarter results and economy is doing great. I feel we will hear another announcement soon. Cedar Fair is toying with all enthusiasts across the boards.

 

I could be so wrong. However, if this is all CF is going to add in 2017, then this will be the smallest year of additions when not in a recession since the 1990s. Just my thoughts.

I'm sure there is but if it was major they probably would have announced it already. I'm thinking it's something along the lines of new passholder perks or special events. Maybe it's a new flower garden I don't know. I wouldn't read too far into it at all.

I don't know. There is still to much mystery behind 2017. I am betting on the fact that they are going to go against the grain and save major announcements for halloweekends or Winterfest. They have to announce what they are going to do with Hurler and MS still.

Why are you convinced that they're going to announce what is happening with Mean Streak in the near future?

Also we are not talking about the fact that RMC does not have 1 project announced for 2017. (Not that I know of) from last year they had 4 and this year none. I find that very strange.

 

 

Trying to stay away from double posts.

 

I am convinced they will lets us know what is happening with either Hurler or MS this year, more so Hurler then MS. Hurler was teased like no other by the park earlier this month. Then they have this tease (what I believe as a tease). With no RMC announced for North America yet, I feel these are major clues to Hurler.

 

Now for MS, I am on the fence. I would like them to talk about the giant structure. However I don't think it will happen until after the funeral. With CP taking so much time to make a funeral happen, then this would be a great time to announce, durning the funeral.

 

CW we still don't know what is being added. They are most likely the only other park that could see a coaster (sorry MiA). If they don't announce a coaster (when they announce) then one of two thing. 1) CF will have a major 2018 year or 2) CF still has announcements for 2017. SF has not announced their plans yet, so it is not to late yet.

Why are you convinced they're not? Serious question!

 

Regarding KD and Hurler, I'm not sure what to expect in terms of announcement, or even what is going to happen to the coaster, but I'll be SHOCKED if we don't know more about what is happening with Mean Streak, by the time Cedar Point closes for the season at the end of October. Maybe I'll be shocked, but based on CP's past precedent, as well as the very visible and significant nature of Mean Streak, its closing, and the curiosity about what is replacing it, I wouldn't bet on it...

Ok, strange idea (VERY UNLIKELY) seeing that CP is going to have this funeral, what if they make a "story" around it some how and that is when KD, CW, and CP all announce the RMC? Just have to go on a creative idea here.

The Kübler-Ross Model, also known as the "five stages of grief" is as follows:

 

1) Denial

2) Anger

3) Bargaining

4) Depression

5) Acceptance

 

We are currently in stage 3: Bargaining. At some point well after hitting 5, we'll start on a new hype cycle, perhaps even a very long and extended one like Kings Island's for Mystic Timbers. Then perhaps all with relation to Hurler will be revealed. Or perhaps not, because maybe they have no actual plans for it right now.

Let me re-state: I don't know if Hurler will be getting anything done to it, or if there will be an announcement still in the next few months. It simply seems odd for them to tease another announcement, that isn't reasonably forthcoming... Also, I have no emotional connection to KD, so believe me, there are no "5 Stages" going on here. I'm simply looking at the situation, all its variables, and coming to conclusions that seem logical, and well-reasoned to me. I'm just surprised by those who are so ardently pushing back against the possibility that there is legitimately more going on here, with regard to KD, that's all.

Fine speak the truth. Lol.

 

Looking at how many S&S free spins may be added to SF line up next year, this could be putting a lot of strain on RMC. I am still waiting to know their other projects are. RMC on Instagram posted saying "it is getting busy in our Idaho shop! More projects to come!" Now this obviously means unannounced, I guess we wait to see what SF announces.

Wait. RMC manufactures S&S Sansei's track? Are you sure about that?

Yes, 100% sure RMC makes the track for the S&S Free Spins.
