Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 766: Haunt Has Risen from the Grave

Recommended Posts

I found this "leaked" picture on a lame coaster Facebook page.

 

This should've stopped you in your tracks, that isn't remotely close to something you should consider a legitimate source.

 

I purposefully posted where I got it so you can draw your own conclusions - Even if you don't think it's legitimate I thought others should get the chance to judge it themselves.

Edit: Was going to point out that it looks like No Limits and therefore was probably fan-made, but I missed that you had already mentioned the NL part in your post. Let's see, there's so much fan-made stuff floating around that I personally would not start getting excited over it...

I dunno man. I just saw this posted in a microsoft paint forum and I mean it says Hurler Renovation on it. Certainly seems plausible. The fact that they used red track is a dead giveaway.

I assume "lame coaster Facebook page" is a word filter?

Nope, the group is called Coaster Park Klub - And the original poster said "Found this on a private Instagram DM." He since deleted the post, but not before I saved it. I called it lame because the discussion there is pretty childish and derivative of other places to discuss news.

Thanks for clarifying. I was totally wrong about the Mean Streak thing so I won't bother speaking on this with any authority but I'm not getting excited about it yet.

 

Personally I think an RMC Hurler is plausible though. Having a coaster closed for an entire season "for maintenance" with very little work going on is unprecedented. Cedar Fair is working with RMC at Cedar Point and similar markers have appeared on Hurler. Does any of this mean anything for sure? No. But it's not exactly farfetched to think that this is a possibility.

 

Selfishly I love the idea for a number of reasons.

 

1) It would put to rest any rumors surrounding Shenandoah Lumber Company. It's unlikely that this park would receive any major coasters for awhile after building this so any chance that that dumb rumor was real would be squashed.

 

2) It would be a spectacular coaster. Sure some people would claim that the layout was boring and not conducive to RMC but they've said that about every RMC renovation to date and been wrong every single time. Even if this was a lower tier RMC it would still be spectacular and a great addition to an already fantastic lineup.

 

3) Carowinds has a clone of the same ride, so it's plausible that down the line they could clone it and drop it there also. Would they? Who knows. But it makes for fun speculation.

 

Oh, and to clarify I'm not talking about a 2017 addition. They already announced their 2017 additions, get over it.

I think it's best to be doubtful of it anyway. I won't fully believe it until I see a stamp on the drawings. But it does look moderately professional for a basic ride render. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a hoax.

EDIT: The drawing seems legit to me (RMC/Ride Centerline have been known to show basic renderings in No Limits), which means KD has at least placed a bid for a hurler renovation. I wish it didn't have a inverting first drop, but it would be amazing with any RMC layout!

That looks like a drafting sheet. I'm suspicious, though that image obviously isn't the entire sheet. Based on where that title block is on the sheet, if you extended the layout to the left where the big sweeping curve is, it would technically go off the paper. Also, why would you have an elevation that's rotated 90 degrees compared to the orientation of the text?

Exactly, either the title block is on the left side of the sheet or the views are just extra weird. Also, the angle of the layout isn't full profile, it's slightly off. The more I look at it, the less convinced I am.

 

CONFIRMED HOAX

 

Sorry for putting people through this roller coaster (heh) of emotion.

CBS channel 6 had on the news last night that riding coasters can be good for you in helping clear out kidney stones! Kept showing a POV clip of Shockwave over and over, between little clips of other stuff. I knew it was good for you.

I'll hopefully be visiting the park this Saturday for both the day and their Haunt event. I haven't been to KD's Haunt event in a long time and I'd like to be able to do as much as possible without a FrightLane pass if possible. Do you guys have any tips on what order we should do the mazes, which mazes should be priorities, or any other helpful information? Thanks!

Are there any particular shops in the park that are guaranteed to have magnets? Like coaster themed refrigerator magnets? Thanks!

 

the options when we were there were terrible. For magnets and shirts (I really wanted a singing mushroom shirt, and despite being the beginning of summer (June) nothing decent avail).

 

we ended up with these. . which were by far the "best" offered, found at the two stores near the front gate after checking several gift shops:

Thanks guys. Magnets are just about the only thing I collect coaster/park related, other than maps. I own maybe 5 coaster related tshirts. I usually think they are so ugly/tacky. With the magnets I like them to be as ridiculous as possible, but if I like the ride alot I'll buy it regardless of what it looks like.

Dorney had some amazing magnets. . LOL. . we ended up w/ 3 of them, from our least favorite park on our Pennsylvania trip a couple of years back!

I have a ton from Dorney, Kennywood and almost every coaster at GreatAdv. Only one from CP. No luck whatsoever at SFOG. Asking employees and them acting like I was a lunatic. Hoping to pick some up at Hershey next month, if they even have them.

Hershey has some great magnets too.

 

we have the Ferris Wheel (that spins, and then the individual cars spin!):

 

and the "wood sign style" one on the fridge.

As typically a backseat rider, I'm curious where the regulars/locals like to sit on each of the coasters @ KD. I know coasterbill loves the back of Dominator. Whats everyone else think? Thanks!
