Lots of confusion in here. Anyway, I don't want to be mindlessly tossing rumors around, but I did hear that Kings Dominion made a contract with Intamin, restricting them to build anywhere within a certain perimeter of the park...which BGW falls into. This is strikingly similar to the supposed contract between BGW and B&M...which most think to either have run out or didn't exist at all.

I don't think the KD/Intamin contract is likely at all, but it would explain a few things.

Why do people talk about these "contracts"? I doubt any of these actually exist.

There's been a contract for everything. I'm surprised no parks have contracted any killers to take out the competition.

Who knows, maybe KD already did hire an assassin for Mach Tower :shockr: Or maybe the employee that decided it was a great idea to mix ammonia and bleach together in the smokehouse? Loyal misguided employee or spy???

Howl-o-Scream List -

Haunted Houses:
- 13: Your Numbers Up (Ireland, EitA Queue)

Shows:
- Monster Stomp Revamped (Ireland, Abbeystone Theater)

Scare Zones:
- Widow Makers (New France)

Now we know almost all of Ireland's attractions, we just need to know where that next things is. I think we can conclude the numbers may be going in order around the park. I believe the next haunted house to be revealed is either Catacombs in France, a new maze in France/New France, or something in Oktoberfest. I believe they are going in order working their way counter clockwise around the park.

I have gathered information and based upon the first show and scare zone I created a list in order of what I think it going to happen. with the first haunted house info released, it only further confirms my theory. Here it is:

1 – Monster Stomp Revamped

2 – Widow Makers

3 – Europe in the Air Queue Maze

4 - Catacombs/Haunted House in France/New France

5 – Das Festhaus Show

6 - Haunted House (Still Unknown)

7 – German Gifts/Rhinefeld Zone

8 – Italy Pavillion Show

9 - Clown Zone

10 - Haunted House (Still Unknown)

11 – Wild Reserve Zone

12 - Pompeii Maze

13 – The Globe Theater Show
I do work at BGW, I am not saying any more info than that about my job. The info I get is from friends and what I see after hours, as well as what I notice and speculate. - RH
