Compliments of Shane's Amusement Attic

The original color scheme was great. I barely remember it and when I saw pictures of the old colors after being used to the new ones I remembered how much I liked them.


When I saw the colors in 2000 I was like ughh!!! so anything other than that would definitely be an improvement.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yea, add me to the list of fans who liked the pre-2000 color scheme. ...At this point, I definitely welcome the change.

I put a similar post in the BGW thread, but my wife and I will be in the Williamsburg area over spring break. Planning on going to KD for 1 or 2 days, depending on weather. Thinking the best strategy for the 1 or 2-day flexibility and cheapest price is to get one VIP Season Pass and then use the $25.00 Bring a Friend Discount for the other admission.

According to the single day ticket page, the online discount is $15.00 and the online price is $42.99. That puts the regular price at $57.99, and the Bring a Friend Discount price to $32.99+tax, right?

1-day would be $89.99 + $32.99 = ~$123
2-day would be $89.99 + $32.99 + $32.99 = ~$156

Anyone have a better strategy?

I Love Donkeys!

^ There are a few I can think of. You should be able to find discounted tickets at places for 35 dollars. That will total up to 140.
If you plan on arriving late, like after 4 pm the first day. The park used to sell full priced tickets where you get in the next day for free. Not sure they still do that. 120 for that option.
After the season starts, you could check ebay or some online sites like that. A few years ago I sold 4 kd tickets on ebay and I think they went for 40 dollars.
I hope this might help you out.

Thanks for the feedback.

The problem with $35 tickets is that it's an extra stop and no free parking, so that'd be $140 + $20 for parking, so ~$160.

The park is only open until 6 PM on the days I'm going, so after 4 PM tickets isn't really an option.

Thanks for the suggestion to check eBay. I'll take a look.

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

I find it interesting that on both the best new coaster and attraction pages, they basically say flat out that an inferior choice won due to massive internet campaigning.

They never really said it was inferior, they just want us to think that Sky Rocket deserved more votes than it got. I think they're on crack personally because if you picked Sky Rocket over the fastest coaster in the world, a giga coaster and a B&M megacoaster then you're insane.

I've gone pantless!

^^Many people take themselves too seriously. I'm glad that I305 won as it's my favorite of the two, but would it have ruined my life if it hadn't? Hardly.

^I'm looking forward to riding Sky Rocket some day.

I've never ridden it and I'm sure it's good. I'm just saying... look at the competition. Do they REALLY think it deserved more votes?
