I'm sure that's not even close to being true but honestly nobody would care if it was. None of the wood coasters at Kings Dominion are standouts but that is clearly the worst of the three. Grizzly is the only one we ever bother riding.

I didn't care for it when I rode it back in June. I enjoyed grizzly as well.

No Woodstock Express cult? At all?

Woodstock Express is my number two to Skull Mountain. Honest to God it's my favorite wood coaster in the park because it has one ridiculous moment of ejector air in the back.

Actually wait that's Skull Mountain too lol.

Rebel Yell is one of the best coasters at Kings Dominion!
It's smooth, fun, and full of airtime hills. It's amazing how it races and lines up with the midway of
Candy Apple Grove!

Grizzly is great but I loved Rebel Yell. It's all airtime all the way, plus I have a serious soft spot for racers.

As far as Hurler goes? I hope the "maintenance" involves a few cans of kerosene and an ignition source.

I used to love Hurler back when it was much better and you guys still hated it. And *I* find it horrible now. So yeah, they need to do something. It would make sense for it to just sit there until they do, even though that's kind of lame to be down 2 coasters from last year. Please KD, if you do that, put the extra crew on RY and Grizzly! Slow ops and closed rides is a "Really?"

Re: delirium, in all my webcam watching I never saw a full test, but looks like one in that picture.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I hope hurler will be taken down honestly. I have even heard GP pointing out that it is a bad ride. I think it's the only ride left in the park that I want to see taken down. (Although, I've never been a big fan of backlot either...)
I think that if a new coaster comes in 2017 it should be there. They could also fix up the area by adding a new entrance to the waterpark. Also, if it's a tall enough coaster and goes out far enough to the west, it might just be visible from I-95? :o
Although they don't have to add a new coaster, maybe they will have GCI retrack it like they are doing with ghostrider at Knott's?
I honestly don't know... But I just really hope that this is more than just hurler maintenance...
