KD gets good attendance but it's not top 5 among seasonal parks. CP, KI, CW, SFMM, SFGradv, BGW, Hershey, and SFGAM all pull in bigger numbers.

I'm pretty sure Kings Dominion pulls in more than SFGAdv and SFGA. But regardless, if Kings Dominion got I305, then I'm sure they can get a major cool ride.

^^That's my favorite post today. You get a sticker!
Sometimes when I am at the park I ask myself "Why is Kingda Ka open?"

KD for sure doesn't pull in more than Gradv according to Theme Park Attendance report (which was posted on this board by the way) and I'm almost certain KD doesnt pull in more than SF Great America which has been as high as 3 million in the 90's-early 00's whereas I dont think KD has every seen numbers that high.

Even if somehow KD did pull bigger numbers than GAM it still wouldnt put KD in the top 5 seasonal parks as you say
