BGW beats KD, i305 beats all of BGWs coasters IMO.
Coaster Count: 96. Four more to the century mark!
Park Count: 15

Top Steel: Intimidator 305

El Toro > I305

Back on topic, please.

I really don't care if we don't get a new ride, I think that Anaconda needs to be refurbished. They need to but a fresh coast of paint on the ride and give it similar trains that Carolina Cobra at Carowinds has, to stop the headbanging.
B&Ms are good rides, GCIs are great rides, Intamin rides are awesome, Arrow rides are bad...TOGO RIDES ARE GOD DARN AWFUL!!!

Favorite Park: Six Flags Great Adventure
Favorite Ride: El Toro!
Coaster Count: 32

^I actually quite liked it when I rode it a month or so ago. The only parts that were rough were the turn into the MCBR and the middle of the super awkward figure 8 helix. I knew what to expect but could never prepare for it properly. The one time I even smashed my jaw on the restraint and it clicked for the rest of the day. Other than those two spots though, I actually really liked it. I quite like Arrow loopers in their extreme simplicity and lack of grace. A nice change of pace from the B&M's and Intamins.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

I only rode it once or twice this year. The only really bad part is the bottom of the butterfly turn, which is just plain brutal. The rest of the ride is fun, though I'd much rather be spending my time riding i305!
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

Supposedly the DA thing is going in between Grizzly & WWC(so much for getting a future B&M invert there) with the rumored windseeker ggoing where HSXLC's vertical tower was.

Oh yeah I forgot about that area. I can see Windseeker going where Hypersonic XLC was. They wouldn't ad a B&M Invert because they already have an Intamin. I wish they would add a GCI woodie there. But they would most likely remove Hurler (I never went on it but I heard it's awful).

I would say the park could def add a chain lifted inverted coaster and it would be quite alright. Volcano is all about speed and the launches. Lots of parks have launched inverters and standard inverted coasters...cedar fair, discovery kingdom, SF great america....just to name a few.
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

El Dorado at Kings Dominion is FOR SALE to more than likely make room for a Windseeker in XLC's old location! For those of you who don't follow KD much, the ride was installed in 2009 to the left of Extreme SkyFlyer...

Just imagine how nice the lighting package on Windseeker would look with Juke Box Diner's neon lighting. It is about time the asphalt jungle (XLC's old spot) is getting some attention... I wonder if they will put brick pavers in back there?
