Now that is what I'm talking about.

Hopes Magic Mountain gets a used Roller Skater that 36" kids can ride.

They are taking the lift out to add a launch to 151mph and then instantly trim it down to 65mph so that the airtime hill is so slow it gives the illusion that there isn't any airtime from the POV.

I think they will keep the lift and put LSM where the trim brakes were to make it go even faster!

Its official from the "In The Loop" podcast:
NEW FOR 2011 - Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular!
=)

New for 2011!
Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular!

America’s favorite Beagle, Snoopy, will light up the nights in 2011 at Kings Dominion with “Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular,” a million dollar nighttime walk-through light and sound experience featuring Snoopy and the PEANUTS™ gang.

Designed using a dazzling mixture of low energy and high efficiency LED lighting, this immersive light and sound spectacular will be located along the park’s center walkway, from the Eiffel Tower to The Grove area, and features more than a one million LED lights adorned from the trees and the Eiffel Tower. The entire experience will be accented by vibrant animated and stationary light displays, vivid theatrical lighting and other cutting edge special effects, all orchestrated to a custom designed audio soundtrack.

Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular will begin to dazzle June 18, 2011 and will run every night of Kings Dominion’s 2011 season when the park is open until 10pm.


I believe several of us including myself predicted this one a couple months ago! ;)

I personally think KD/CF couldn't of picked a better location for the show! Central walkway (path from the Eiffel Tower to the Carousel) has nothing on it and is covered in trees and should look awesome all lit up in lights! Then on one end of the path will be the Carousel lit up like always and on the opposite end the Eiffel Tower will more than likely be lit up like the one at KI.

I'm satisfied with this investment after getting a 25 million dollar giga and a kiddie section retheme.

you know at first I thought blah when they started putting these in, but after I saw it in person, I was like, this is really neat.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Why'd they wait until now to announce it?
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I really loved the one at Worlds of Fun. It was charming and really effective. I'm glad to see it is making its way to other parks.
