Nice pics. Dominator looks great. I really think it is such a nice addition to the park, they really needed it.

Is the carved out Batman symbol still there, or are the seats brand new? I hope it isn't still there. :lolr:

KD has a real quality coaster on their hands. I can't wait to go there and be reunited with one of my favorites!

The Batman symbols are no longer there. I believe the seats are brand new. :airtime:

Kings Dominion's 2009 New Rides Confirmation?

Postby pkd freak » Wed Jul 16, 2008 5:31 am

If this has been confirmed that we are getting 3 new flats for next season. I'm really not looking fwd to it.. These are so old school. There're suppose to be located in XLC's old location. WooooW, I cannot see KD with a Ferris Wheel!!!!

News Plus Notes wrote:It's also being reported on the site that Americana (ferris wheel), Black Squid (spider flat ride), and El Dorado (magic carpet flat ride) are going to Kings Dominion for next year. The news comes from a reputable source, and it's said that the rides will occupy Hypersonic's former area.

Heck, atleast KD is getting some flat ride love even if they are old.

Carowinds needs some love too but we'll wait for new flats.

KD just opened a huge new coaster this season (Dominator), even if it was a relocated one. So, I'm not surprised that next year's offerings are a bit more "low key."

I don't know about any of you guys but next to Dominator,Americana is another ride from GL that I'd love to see at the park & it will add a nice change to the skyline that's for sure.

Don't forget that already there are rumors going around about something big coming for 2010(hyper perhaps?) so the park's 09 offerings don't sound bad to me in the least.

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

It is interesting that Kings Dominion is ( or maybe ) be getting a Ferris Wheel considering that back in the 70's that park vowed never to get one.

"...you can ride those at carnivals !!"

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

Ha--I never knew about that vow. We did have Apple Turnover which always reminded me of a Ferris Wheel when I was younger.
