Wait... What? I must have missed something here. . .


A potential concept revealed at 2018 IAAPA.

Please let this happen. The meltdown over this being Volcano's replacement would be hilarious. :lol:

Same lol Gravedigger is an extremely popular monster truck and monster jam packs out NFL stadiums and smaller arenas all over the country. Monster trucks go pretty fast and have a ton of horse power and can jump things, do flips and wheelies so it's not like the theme is really that far fetched. Kids will love it too.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I do have a concern: With both Volcano and the Crypt being removed and some big, awesome attraction will be taking its place, what about the Avalanche? Last time I was there, the Avalanche was placed between the Volcano and The Crypt and I would hate to see the Avalanche go so a big massive coaster can take it's place in all that void. Then again, this coaster could take Volcano and Crypt's spot and wrap itself around Avalanche (it's been done before in the amusement park world; such as The Great Bear at Hersheypark and Goliath at Six Flags over Georgia), or this coaster will just take Volcano's spot and we'll have another attraction take Crypt's spot.

If the former happens and they do take out Avalanche, then it will be the second time Kings Dominion removed three rides and replaced it with an exciting coaster (I'm talking about The Lost World being replaced with Volcano). However, I don't think Avalanche is on the chopping block and it is safe from elimination.

Anaconda, on the other hand . . . :?r

They removed two maintenance nightmares. I don't think they're doing it because they have some grand expansion plan or that the Crypt removal is tied to the Volcano removal. I'm not even sure they know what they're planning for that space yet.

I don't really think they'll remove Avalanche but I also wouldn't be entirely shocked.

^ Agreed. You had a prototype suspended launch coaster and a flat that's quickly going extinct. Mack still lists the bobsled on their website, so they probably still provide replacement parts (if needed).
