It's just that living in Northern Virginia, I visit KD a lot more than other parks like Cedar Point or Six Flags Great Adventure. Hope that clears everything up.


I don't try to bail out a sinking ship, I just look past the leaks...

KD is nowhere near prefect and we all (should) know it.

Re: "Commercial"

Douchebags!

Not only does the piece have the Paramount logo but Dominator has a pic of it in it's old location and they spelled Eiffel wrong.

The Charity Auction for Intimidator 305 is Up and Running...
Are you ready to be the first to thunder along the track at over 92mph on the tallest and fastest coaster of its type on the East Coast? Intimidator™305 opens to the public on Friday April 2, 2010, and you could be the first to ride this mammoth steel Giga-coaster by participating in the Intimidator™305 First Rider Charity Auction.

Kings Dominion has partnered with the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, Make-a-Wish Foundation® of Greater Virginia, Challenge Discovery Projects Inc. (Richmond) and the USO Hampton Roads to hold the first rider auction benefitting our local communities. Starting now until the auction closes at 11:59pm on Thursday March 25, bid on your chance to win a seat on one of the first four (4) trains released on opening day.

Proceeds will go to the Dale Earnhardt Foundation, Make-a-Wish Foundation® of Greater Virginia, Challenge Discovery Projects Inc. (Richmond) and the USO of Hampton Roads.

The mission of the Dale Earnhardt Foundation is to "Continue The Legend™" and legacy of Dale Earnhardt through charitable programs and grants that sustain his life long commitment to children, education and environmental/wildlife preservation.

Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Greater Virginia grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Challenge Discovery Projects Inc. is a local Richmond non-profit that works to improve the quality of life and livelihood of at-risk youth and families in Greater Richmond. "Say It With Heart" is Challenge Discovery Projects' bullying prevention program that places trained professionals in several Richmond elementary and middle schools where they teach non-violent interpersonal skills to students, teachers and parents.

The USO's mission is to enhance the quality of life of the U.S Armed Forces personnel and their families worldwide and to create a cooperative relationship between U.S. Military communities and involved or supporting civilian communities.

Bidding Rules:


All bids must be secured using a valid credit card. The card itself will not be billed until the end of the auction once the winners have been determined.
The bidding will begin at $100.00 per seat (winning bids will receive one seat on one of Intimidator™305's first four trains during the opening day ceremony, two (2) Regular Single Day admission tickets ($113.98 value) for April 2, 2010 and one commemorative prize pack).
Winners will receive a confirmation email from Kings Dominion on Monday, March 29, 2010 upon auction closing if they have won.
Seats will be chosen by each winner based on the amount of the winning bid and the seating availability on the day of the event. The highest bidder will have first choice, the second highest bidder second choice and so on. Please check the "See the Bids" page to determine where you rank in the auction.

Winners have the option to update their bid at any time, before the auction period closes, to improve their seat selection order by simply going to the "Update your Bid" page.

Winners must be available to check-in at 9:00am on Friday, April 2, 2010 for the first ride. Those that arrive late could lose their seat choice and eligibility.
Intimidator™305's first ride will depart at 10am.

Thats pretty neat that its going to charity. No way I'd bid, but still kind of neat.

I'll be fine with showing up Saturday, getting my pass processed, and waiting 3-4 hours for a ride. :)

On the topic of passes - anyone order one online this off season? I bought mine back in November and have yet to get billed for it. I got the PDF's of the tickets and the receipt but nothing yet actually charging me for them. Do they normally wait until closer to the season to bill people?

I get wet for Manta!

You'll be billed on March 1st.

I purchased my pass around Christmas last year and they didn't bill me until March 1.

Would you suggest waiting a weekend of two, just to make sure I make it? I don't have any of the credits and this coaster would be the main reason to head out there, so is it worth buying a plane ticket and leaving it to chance?

Have you ever been in my shows and missed the credit?


With the First Rider Charity event being Friday April 2nd, I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that the park is more than certain that the coaster will open with the rest of the park.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I'd wait a weekend or two more than likely... Opening weekends can be such a crap shoot. It would suck to make the plans and have the ride delayed for some reason and not be open when you're there.

I've been to a couple opening day/weekends for rides in this area, and each time I essentially went to the park just to get on the new ride - then leave. Volcano I waited all day to ride, Hypersonic was the same since it was closed for much of its first day, and SROS on my first trip to the park was closed almost all day before finally opening... So basically, I would wait a while just in case.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

^Opening weekend is going to be insane. When Diamondback opened the line stretched for three hours. I'm going to wait until the following weekend to take my first ride on I305.
