Apparently the park sent out an email saying that Kings Dominion will open on March 22nd! Oh, did I say March? I meant May. Alpengeist, InvadR and Verbolten are open tomorrow. This comp

Yesterday, after my brief stop at SFA, I fought through the perpetual Northern Virginia I-95 traffic to check out Kings Dominion's Taste of the Season event - a COVID-blamed Winterfest-lite.  And beli

Too bad Volcano isn't still around. It was ahead of its time not only technologically, but it already had limited capacity down to a science.

Twisted Timbers looks fantastic! I am most surprised by the ride's length! What a great addition to the park.

 

The POV if I'm looking correctly makes it seem they have extended the structure beyond the original Hurler layout? I could be wrong but can't wait to see the actual layout!

So Cedar Fair is going all on the the (Blank) Timbers theme I guess.

 

2019 Timber Wolf becoems Terrific Timbers for Worlds of Fun

2020 Grizzly at Great America to become Magnificent Timbers

2021 Dorney park to build new family coaster Tiny Timbers

 

"Timbers" is the new "Hawk" --- and I'm okay with that....

 

Timber Hawk hurler conversion, new for Carowinds in 2019.

Something interesting to note.... Twisted Timbers' cars are not typical RMC trains. Each car runs on two road wheels per side, whereas typical RMCs run on one per side. Just something I noticed. They are almost built more like the Gerstlauer trains on NTAG and IR.

RMC said that all of their 2018 coasters would have a new train design.

In an interview, RMC said that the 2018 US coasters would be getting new train design, or something along those lines.

I think the additional length comes from the extra height added to the ride, especially on that insane airtime alley after the first overbank.

Awesome! That means the airtime will be out of this world!

I'm not surprised by the barrel roll drop. It was pretty apparent to me when they began work and cut away so much of the top of the drop that it would be a barrel roll drop.

 

BUT THOSE TRAINS. WOW

I wasn't slamming them or being unduly negative, just pointing it out. I think they're there for capacity reasons mostly on the raptors anyways. You have to admit that it would be sad to see the big RMC's w/ that situation.
