Current Kings Dominion Teasers

 

6/20: 816. Just remember... things aren't always what they seem.

 

6/27: 20. BE⊥TER than 4.

 

7/4: 3. BE⊥TER than none.

 

7/11: 28. Makes it BE⊥TER.

 

7/18: The force RA⊥TLED the windows.

 

816. Just remember... things aren't always what they seem --- announcement date 8/16 & something is going to be odd about this coaster?

 

20. BE⊥TER than 4 ---- air time moments ?

 

3. BE⊥TER than none. ----3 inversions ?

 

28. Makes it BE⊥TER ---turns ?

PLEASE let there be another spooky shed in Candy Apple Grove (Or do they just call it "The Grove?) I really want there to be a shed. With...windows?

I enjoyed Mystic Timbers teasers a bit too much...

Hopefully there will be a drop track this time instead of Gary Numan's Cars.

I have made tentative arrangements to be off work and head to KD on 8/16 for the announcement (once confirmed). If, "Just remember...things aren't always what they seem." is for real and the announcement is about upcoming changes for Haunt and not the new and improved Hurler... That'll be 2 years in a row KD's PR has fooled me with their announcement BS!

The force rattled the windows .. Shock Wave? Now I'm really confused. Plus those teasers hurt my eyes, need to turn them any other color.

 

28 is also the number of seats on each train previously. Don't know why they'd tease something staying the same, although it would be better than some alternatives. Looks at least 20' taller to me, maybe even 28 but no more for sure. It could also be the height differential, as it's also going closer to the ground.

 

Topped out!

What do you guys think the new height is? The old height was 83'. This looks over 100' at least

 

It also looks like the lift ends earlier horizontally, not over the original crest. There's also been a big hole at the original crest, maybe just to remove the chain sprocket and greasy wood, maybe not. I'm wondering about a surprise here, maybe even a pre-drop inversion or dip.

My guess is a dip and turn around before a dive-over drop.

 

One thing that I can predict based on how low to the ground this ride is getting is that the airtime will be almost violent. There seems to be so much height differential in the hills that have new wood on them. I'm predicting that this one will be kind of an Iron Rattler Jr, where it's relentless in bouncing whipping you around, plus many drops. Mean Streak is more like an over-sized Wicked Cyclone.

Was anyone at KD on the 19th? At around 10:30 I was in line for I305 and it closed, pretty standard. So I made my way to FoF, but was told it was closed also. Then went to Anaconda and it was also closed. I saw all three open with the park. Then went to Rebel yell, Ricochet and Grizzly and they were all closed! Judging by what I saw every coaster closed at around the same time. We went to Dominator, which was open, and then back over to I305/FoF which were open and by then it seems that every coaster with exception of Volcano had opened back up.

 

Crazy coincidence or something else?

^ Probably power. KD has had its fair share of power problems/cutouts before, especially during the peak of summer.

 

Also, I have seen that the new VooDoo themed Haunt maze that's going in the former Club Blood/Blackout building (within Hurler) will be named "Blood of the Bayou" consistent with the chain-wide trend (CP, Wonderland, WOF, etc.).

I'm crossing my fingers for good luck at Kings Dominion next weekend. It'll be my first time visiting, and I'd hate for rides (especially Volcano) to be closed. Luckily we have two full days, so hopefully it works out.

 

I believe Volcano is up and running again, but you never know. That thing is like a temperamental toddler during the summer. If you have two days, you should be fine though.

Volcano was down again last weekend and coasterqueue says it still is. It was running great 10 days ago though, they even opened the back row for what was probably the first time all year.

Supposedly Volcano is down for the remainder of the season. Can anyone confirm? Had been planning another visit next weekend....

 

PLEASE NO! I'm visiting next weekend for the first time as well. Come on Kings Dominion, you can do it!

 

Someone reported that the ride was testing today so maybe there's hope!

Somebody I follow on Instagram reported it was open today, but considering its reputation over the last month, I'm trying not to get my hopes up. If it can last through next weekend, that's all that matters to me!

 

Ok Seeker, how about this: I'll cross my fingers and do a Volcano launch dance for you if you do the same for me and Lightning Rod - where I'll be next weekend for the first time ever. Deal?

 

Volcano is my favorite ride in the park and it was closed in June when I was at KD. I was so bummed. I live in the area and have ridden it probably in excess of 300 times over the years and I just love it because it's so rerideable. It's super smooth, the launch in the front row is amazing and overall a really unique coaster. Yes it's short and but so is Storm Runner at Hershey and that ride kicks all kinds of ass! I really hope you can get on it. V: The Blast Coaster > I-305 any day for me.

You've got a deal! lol

 

Interesting that you prefer Volcano over I305. That's definitely an unpopular opinion!
