Looks like a great addition for the park! I just hope they can extend the ride cycle by a swing or two.

One thing that looks a little odd, is all the empty space on both sides of the ride. It's hard to tell from the Webcam, but what is that trench to the left of the ride?

This ride is just gorgeous. It looks like an animation almost!

Also KD is looking gorgeous as well especially this time of year..

Actually, I think the short ride cycle is a good idea. The lines this first season will be very long, and a longer cycle will just make the wait times even longer, and less people will ride it. But as the GP's hype dies down, they should extend the cycle in future seasons. Honestly, I thought Max Air and Black Widow were so awesome, I don't care if the ride is short this year!

I think that is exactly the reason. When Sledgehammer (Bobbejaanland) opened back in 2004, the cycles were short aswell. But the next season, the ride time was much longer.

Oh WOW! Any time we have a Media day and seeing the cool pictures of Kings Dominion always get me excited, actually more like X-SITE-TED!!! With the new ride in place, I but this whole are will be a lot of Applesauce - I mean, Awesome Sauce ( Is that one word or two? The computer misspells it as one word and corrects it as two. On the other hand, maybe I'll stick with applesauce.).

Now as for John Peck who asked this question "What is missing in that fourth photo?" Well, isn't it obvious? I"M NOT THERE RIDING THOSE RIDES!" That's what's missing, but I hope to correct that problem within the next few weeks.

And that would be a lot of Applesauce! =)

I've gone pantless!

Nice photos. I've always enjoyed frisbee rides. Does anybody else find it a little funny how such a big space was left open for a tiny (in relation to Shockwave's footprint) ride? Any word on if they are adding something else to the area?
