do the KD coasters accommodate guests of a larger size?

I know that the Cedar Fair parks typically have some big=boy seats.

I'm about the same as I was last year for our Penn. trip, and I had no trouble there, but just trying to plan ahead for any disappointment :)

Dominator does in the middle two rows, but none of the other coasters or rides (as far as I know) have designated seats for guests of a larger size.

I think the hypercoaster on KD's front page is legit. No other Cedar Fair park is putting an coaster that they don't currently have on their front page.

Kings Dominion, Busch Gardens, Six Flags America are my home parks
Favorite coasters are: Griffon, I305, Dominator, Volcano, Apollo's Chariot, S:ROS, Fury 325, Skyrush, and so much more.

Worlds of Fun did it. Plus, Kings Dominion doesn't have Millennium Force (look in the background). I discovered the picture, and I'm helping to debunk it - the only place where KD might put a hypercoaster is as a Hurler replacement, and that just got retracked within 2 weeks and new trains at the beginning of the season. :roll: Look for something in 2017. The only parks that we know are getting something are Cedar Point (the email-known as Divegate to the KD faithful), Canada's Wonderland (land clearing+survey markings), and Carowinds ("big splash in 2016", Thunder Road closing). There are no leaked plans, trademarks, survey markings, or a hint during a press conference to indicate that 2016 is KD's year. Expect the Shockwave removed with a thrilling flat ride to replace part of its land for 2016 while the land around it gets prepared for a huge B&M in 2017.

I don't see Millennium force anywhere in that image. Also, Worlds of Fun has all of their rides. I think KD will indeed get a coaster in 2016. Cedar Fair goes through a cycle when it comes to their bigger parks, and KD is next in line.

I doubt CW is getting a coaster next year.

3. With Cedar Point receiving an uber-expensive B&M dive coaster in 2016, you can forget any coaster above the size and price tag of a Triotech hitting Kings Dominion in 2016.
4. Cedar Fair rejected Kings Dominion when the park was due for a coaster in 2014, and again in 2015. It seems like they want to milk Intimidator 305 and clever marketing ploys as long as possible.

If you want to solve the 2016/2017 Cedar Fair mysteries, the last thing you should be doing is trusting Cedar Fair's clueless graphic designers.

Like Intimidator 305, Windseeker, and Soak City the best bet is to wait for the building permits to be filed with Hanover County.

^^The only similarities that coaster you circled and Millennium Force has is that there is a lift hill... :roll:

1) That's a purple line.... How do you even call that a coaster. Even if it is something its random filler.
2) It's an artist rendering, no ones going to care really. This mindless speculation is getting pathetic.
3) 15 Mil is rumored for that. That's dirt cheap for a CP ride, and still in an SF price range.
4) KD is due for a coaster but it won't happen. They're focusing on other more important things and a coaster isn't necessary. It's not neglected either, CP went through this same kind of coaster drought and its a flagship park.
Top 10:
El Toro, Boulder Dash, Magnum, Phantom, Maverick, Goliath (SFOG), Millenium, Nitro, Dragster, Storm Runner
