Any ideas on what we may be getting in 2012? My guess is it'll be a small addition since they usually announce the major invcestments right around late july/early august.


Didn't KD announce Intimidator 305 in late August?

But supports arrived 2 months before that, so we knew they were getting something big. I'm sure KD will get something decent for 2012, just not expecting something that big.

Checked on FB recently & KD says they'll announce their "2012 product' soon,some are speculating that it just might be a windseeker as one person did mention Mondial by name.

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

Look at the guys profile, he is a teen that doesn't know anything about the park's future plans... he says it's "obvious" and I'm guessing he is talking about how 4 other CF parks installed Windseekers this year so he thinks KD will do the same...

And don't get your hopes up for KD saying "soon!" considering they have been saying that their new website has been coming "soon!" since May and it still isn't up yet... :|

If Kings Dominion got a Windseeker or a Giant frisbee, it would be awesome, but keep in mind that Kings Dominion got a 25 million dollar roller coaster last year. Yea, sure it'd be great to get a Windseeker in 2012, don't get me wrong I am hoping for one too but I'm not getting my hopes too high for another "huge" invesment next year. Maybe a Windseeker in 2013, or 2014. :)

^A frisbee doesn't really constitute a "giant investment"...

A Huss Giant Frisbee costs between $4.5 - $6 million dollars to install, depending on how much work has to be done to the area the ride will be installed at.

I'd say that's a pretty significant investment.

I think if we do get either a Windseeker or a Huss Giant Frisbee, I think it would be built either in Old Virginia near the Kings Dominion Theater, or where Hypersonic XLC was. If it was in the old XLC spot, I dont think there would be much land clearing or anything except maybe tearing up the asphalt and concrete. If it were put in Old Virginia I think it would cost alot, since there are alot of trees to tear down over in that area. So I think it would be better financially for Kings Dominion to put the new (If we do get one) ride over in XLC's old spot

I think the best spot for a giant frisbee is where Shockwave stands now. It'd fit in with the generic themeing of the area too. Sadly, I don't see Shockwave being removed in the next 5 years. Especially since they just repainted it.
