^It was a joke, therefore shouldn't be taken seriously.

But KD normally has good luck with getting rides open on time. I still can't believe they managed to debut i305 opening day 2010!
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

I for one would like windseeker's seats to face inward, like insanity at the stratosphere.(a suggestion that would never happen)

Otherwise I am happy with what kings dominion got. The only park that outranks it in terms of 300 ft+ rides is cedar point, and you don't see two 300 ft rides built in such back to back manner often.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

^^^Yeah they got it open on time, but then it had some pretty major issues...just saying.

^That would be cool, it would be funny to be able to look at someone with a fear of heights while riding.

Thinking about going on a Saturday in October.
-Does anyone know if Flight of Fear be open during the daytime hours? I can see on the Haunt map that it is just listed as a Haunted Maze, but can't find anything saying if it's closed all day or just at night.
-How intense is the Haunt? I'm quite the wimp at haunted attractions (I'd be going mainly for coasters)

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Well it looks like Kings Dominion will also have Fright Lane for Halloween Haunt XI...

Add the new FRIGHT LANE ticket option and you'll get a lanyard that allows you to bypass the regular wait lines for every one of our Haunt mazes one time each. The more you buy, the more you save. A very limited number of these tickets are available and start as low as $20.

Barbarian Fight Club presents Fright Fight at Kings Dominion. Live Outdoor MMA Action. Gates open at 7:00pm, Fights begin at 9:00pm. Fright Fight Ticket AND Kings Dominion ticket or Season Pass required.
