Kings Dominion (KD) Discussion Thread

P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

Quite the teaser campaign KD is pumping out. Would be more fun if we didn't know EXACTLY what the ride is or at least the type of coaster

If we had no clue what they were doing it would be a masterful teaser, but it's a really good teaser for the ride and it's name. Maybe they're doing some form of an update to all of Candy Apple Grove. They have been saying this will be the biggest announcement yet, and updating a whole section of the park would be pretty big, and the pattern is apples.

I'm probably grasping at straws here, but hey we're all talking about this and that's exactly what Kings Dominion wants us to be doing.

I predict that in addition to RMC Hurler, the Apple Turnover may return as either a refurbished or newer Enterprise model! There may also be a renovation to Candy Apple Grove with a few more flat ride additions, making 8/16 the "Biggest Announcement in KD's history!"

Did anyone see that rumor a couple weeks ago about the name of RMC Hurler being "Rotten Apple"? I haven't been keeping up with this thread lately so apologies if that was discussed.

I'm personally not a fan of that one but I guess that might fit the pattern.

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.

 

7/25: It left everything TA⊥TERED and torn in its wake.

 

8/1: It can be a bit KNO⊥TY.

 

8/8: Do you see a PA⊥TERN?

The thing with the teasers is they tend to seem so obvious that one is left wondering if we're missing something.

 

I'm going on a company teambuilding to KD this Thursday and I was wondering what are the best places to eat for our team lunch. Company pays for everything, so money is no issue. Thanks!

 

Country Kitchen (American)

Panda Express

Border Cafe (good if you get the steak or chicken, avoid the regular beef, smaller portions than these other 2)

Wayside Grill (sort of Country Kitchen lite)

I first came across the name Rotten Apple a few weeks ago.

 

If that ends up being the name, my gut reaction is... "Could be worse..."

I think "RO⊥TEN Apple" fits the pattern best, especially with the background image in the most recent teaser. It's definitely a bit awkward, especially with the Bad Apple just down the way, but I care less about the theming/paint job and more about the ride quality.

Also, yes, KD, I do see a pattern.

First teaser: announcement date

Teasers 2-4: "BE⊥TER than" teasers. Comparisons between Old/New Hurler.

Teasers 5-8: Name allusions. The only real argument against the "RO⊥TEN Apple" name would be that teasers 5 and 6 seem to refer to a monster rather than fruit, although they could be referring to ride intensity.

Teaser 9: GIVE ⊥HEM WHAT ⊥HEY WANT. 816.

Also, a park employee in Candy Apple Grove gave me a USB stick with a

during my visit on Saturday, which I uploaded to YouTube. Please let me know if you can make sense of it.

I think those clues could also be referring to some type of storm, particularly a nautical storm.

I for one don'⊥ give a shi⊥ abou⊥ ⊥hese ⊥easers since we already know i⊥'s RMC Hurler. I can'⊥ be ⊥he only one, can I?

 

PS: Regarding that picture it looks great, please, please, please have a barrel rolling first drop.

I was not impressed with Storm Chasers barrel roll drop

 

Seriously? I thought it was absolutely insane. On a larger RMC like Mean Streak I'd prefer a super-steep, insane drop with sustained ejector airtime but on these smaller ones I think it's a really clever way to make the first drop completely awesome.

 

To each his own I guess...

I think it's fun to play along with the park's teaser campaigns. I think this is way better than Knot's which has only posted one 5 second clip as their whole teaser campaign.

I really hope it's not one. Medusa Steel might have been my favorite RMC if it wasn't for the first drop, which is the only 'mehh' part of that whole ride, to me. Storm Chaser's drop also underwhelmed me the same way. They look cool, but they're pretty forceless in reality, especially in the front. Straight, simple, super steep drops are far superior.

 

I'm sure some will disagree though

I'm mostly amused by the fact that they decided to go with "The Matrix but red" for a teaser campaign in 2017.

Count me in the group of folks who want a straight down drop. Ive not ridden Storm Chaser or Medusa but I am hoping for a wonky turnaround to a pop that leads straight down. I'm sure whichever it turns out to be its gonna be awesome.

Yeah, I think I'm just hoping for the greatest volume of that amazing RMC AIRTIME™

 

Their inversions are great, but airtime is where they really excel.
