Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

I'm saying Cedar Fair isn't done talking about the development of their parks, so we may be hearing more.

 

So you think Cedar Point's announcement will include a Kings Dominion announcement? You people are in such denial I'm honestly starting to feel a little bad for you.

 

You're getting a Planet Snoopy expansion. I know they said there would be "more" but you guys are putting way too much into that statement. Every park says that every single time they add anything. If it were anything worthwhile they would have announced it when they had a big presentation in a theater. It's time to accept reality and move on.

Should we make a "Really More Coming = RMC" drinking game?

 

Would love to participate, but I'm a few years too young for that, and also alcohol ain't a thing here in Saudi Arabia, so nope.

 

Either way, I do acknowledge that this may be some stupid coincidence, but I kind of pity these KD fans tbh.

Firstly, you shouldn't include me into any "you people" group. I have no interest in taking sides in this discussion, and as an employee of Cedar Fair, it's a wise choice.

 

Secondly, my statement, "[...]Cedar Fair isn't done talking about the development of their parks, so we may be hearing more."

 

I put the important part in bold. Allow me to define the word for you as well.

 

I like Merriam-Webster and their definitions, so I'll use theirs.

 

Coming from definition C:

 

May - used to indicate possibility or probability.

 

While I would love to say some equivocation could have occurred in my statement, my statement is extremely clear.

 

In no way, shape, or form did I ever say that Cedar Point's announcement will include a King's Dominion announcement. That is you placing extraneous information into my statement.

 

So in a final breakdown.

 

Cedar Fair isn't done talking about the development of their parks

  • - Canada's Wonderland and a few other parks have not announced their 2017 attractions
    - Cedar Point GM mentioned that news on Mean Streak will come after the 16th of September

 

So we may be hearing more.

  • - about Mean Streak
    - about additional plans for any of the Cedar Fair parks, especially Canada's Wonderland and the parks who have yet to make their announcements

 

So if you could stop pulling words out of your behind, I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thank you.

well okay then.

 

I know what the word "may" means. My only point was that if you believe there's any reasonable chance that they're going to make any meaningful announcement (in the eyes of everyone in this thread that would mean a coaster) for KD in 2017 after they already teased and announced what they were doing then I think you're wrong. I don't know why that's an inflammatory statement. It wasn't supposed to be but this thread has gone entirely insane.

^^ Please lighten up a little bit - I put a winkie emoticon to show you that I was only kidding.

 

Most of us are pretty aware that CF isn't done with their announcements and yes...we have all seen the "Really More is Coming" thing. If it's an RMC somewhere at a CF park in the next year or two great...if not, most of us will manage to somehow survive.

 

Talking down to enthusiasts when you are only a ride-op at a CF park comes across like you are a pretentious dick-head that is only going to stir up trouble here.

^He got mad over something but I don't know why. The park already told us what they were getting. No reasonable person things they would have a huge announcement and then leave out something that's a million times better than what they actually announced.

 

No park in the history of ever has done that. People just don't want to believe they're only getting a Planet Snoopy expansion and a few small enhancements here and there but that's what the park teased and announced.

Glad we are on the same page.

It's not about the "Really More Coming". I'm just pointing out an announcement that is coming up after the 16th.

 

I am also not "only a ride-op at a CF park", but that is something to talk about over a drink.

 

If I'm coming off as pretentious, let me assure you that is not my goal.

I'm actually in a great mood.

 

And to address the point of "no park leaving out huge investments out of their announcements", I don't think that argument will be sufficient.

 

McClure was coy when asked about the future of Mean Streak, Cedar Point's massive wooden coaster that will close next month.

 

Roller coaster fans are hoping that instead of being torn down, Mean Streak will be converted into a new ride – a so-called hybrid coaster with a wood frame and steel track.

 

McClure said any announcement of what will replace Mean Streak will come after the ride's last operating day, Friday, Sept. 16, the opening night of HalloWeekends.

 

"We'll string it out for a while," said McClure. "We like that people are curious."

 

He added, "The only thing I can tell you right now is that we won't disappoint you with what we do back there."

Sigh! Why must this thread always be such a train wreck?

 

Good people, let's try being decent to each other for a change. I'm tired of having to police this thread. Remember that it's all about having fun, not running each other down.

 

Thank you.

Who said there was an announcement coming on the 16th?

 

It's in the post you quoted.

 

I appropriately corrected it to "after the 16th". It's not for KD, but rather, CP.

Blah blah blah blah blah....

FFS can you please just stop posting here?

 

I want to punch the screen every time I read one of your posts.

 

Seriously, no one really cares what you have to say.

 

So maybe you can pack it up and try posting to another forum?

 

Got it? Cool, thanks...

I don't think the Really More Coming thing was an accident. Unfortunately the most likely thing is it's a tease in the fullest meaning of the word. Or they want one but don't know when or if. Maybe they're fanning the flames of the fanboys because CF corporate doesn't want RMC. Personally, I think RMC steel/TRex is at least as likely as RMC Hurler.

 

As to the park's having a lot more space, I305 is already too close to the smelly industry to the south. Plus they're getting away with no in-park transportation systems or even trams for the parking lot. I think they'd expand the park if the customer base was larger, say if the population here keeps growing for 20 more years, or if more people suddenly start going to amusement parks (this could also be a matter of time, for example if personal thrill machines such as boats and fast cars become restricted or more impractical).

 

Right now, they have space they can't make use of (Hurler), and more coasters will be reaching their end soon enough. There could be a real flurry of coaster replacement.

 

I honestly just want KD to get something big, it doesn't even have to be a coaster. Just something big enough to show people that it is not neglected and it is a perfectly legitimate alternative to BGW. Because right now KD is going lower and lower down in peoples' lists. I'm starting to lose hope in KD... And it makes me sad to see this happening because I literally just gave up on SFA (my home park) after the horrid 2015 addition... "And for one of our most neglected parks, a ride we stole from the local fair!"

Anyways... I'm just kinda depressed about what is happening, and I just want to see something bigger added to KD soon, just so I can know that KD isn't going to turn into a lower tier park like WOF or DP. Heck I even have friends that are planning trips in the area that are just like: "Okay, so I'll spend half the day at SFA and the other half at KD to get the creds, then spend two full days at BGW and Carowinds." and I just kinda hear that and die a little bit inside. XD

I just really want to see KD get recognized as the great park that it is, and not some credit park that you only spend 2 hours at... And I know that this post is kinda a mess and I probably look really stupid posting this, but I just wanted to express my opinions on this. Does anyone else feel the same way? Or is it just me?

 

I don't know anything big that would bring in the people like a coaster, except maybe something like bringing the animal safari back, not gonna happen. As to "credit park", I think BGW has more that would be worth traveling a long distance for (although nothing a match to I305), but I'd rather be a local to KD than anywhere else, better variety (though many rides are ordinary and BGW is gaining ground)), less overcrowding than any place substantially better (northern parks).

I'm just gonna start banning people. No questions asked.

 

You want to make stupid posts? BANNED!

 

You want to keep dragging out the same pointless discussion? BANNED!

 

You want to question the admins? BANNED!

 

It's the only way I can see that we can get this thread back on track and weed out the people that are making this unbearable for the rest us us.
