I didn't know this until today, but apparently the park added a Christmas section to the Emporium gift shop on International Street for the 2013 season.

That's not to say it means anything; just pointing it out to those interested.

Even that's a return to the golden years! There was a Christmas shop on International Street for a long time! It used to be located where the Starbucks is now.

I doubt they will do this, but I don't think it is impossible, my opinion, your ideas are awesome! I would love to see it, Cedar Fair has a lot of work to do though.

Get to The Point..... CEDAR POINT!!!

So I decided to check out the Christmas shop on International Street yesterday. I sure am glad I did, because it's a really neat display. Check it out!

So I just want to let everyone know that I have not forgotten this concept at all. I'm currently in the process of completely re-writing my original concept for a KD winter event, and perhaps even providing some concept art.

For now, I want to throw a little something out there. While I still think KD could easily pull off a winter event in the future, right now I think they could do a small-scale "off-season" operation like Cedar Point's event called "Winter Chill Out." Cedar Point introduced this mini "event" last year (not sure if you'd call it an event) and it's essentially a chance to check out the park during the winter off-season.

Cedar Point Wrote:This event is an off-season look at what happens here at Cedar Point in the winter. You'll be treated to a tour of the park and our maintenance facilities. You'll also get to meet our new VP & General Manager Jason McClure during a Q&A session - feel free to "grill" him with the big questions. And we'll also feed you.

The best part? The proceeds from this event go directly to Give Kids The World. Please read up on what they're doing for children with life-threatening illnesses and their  families. It's remarkable and we're happy to partner with them.

Cost of this event is $40 and includes everything mentioned above. You must purchase a ticket and register for this event.

NOTE: This event is open to anyone.

Considering KD's rapidly-growing fan base and the possibility for the park to really cash in on some extra profits during the off-season, this could be a perfect event for KD to do during the winter season. While I still think a larger-scale winter event like my original concept is a great long-term goal that the park should still be working towards, I think this type of event would be a perfect low-key event for us enthusiasts, and it's something that the park could get started within the next few seasons.

I think this would be a great small winter event for KD that could maybe bloom into a bigger event someday. What do you guys think?

Honestly you should email Kings Dominion and inquire about something like that. Would attend in a heartbeat.

Our biggest foe is our inclination towards complacency and willingness to settle for mediocrity.

Well CGA has an outside company come and do an event, in the parking lot, with carnival rides, and a quarter of the park open. Yeah, it's pretty sketchy now that I think about it. Tongue

Where is Hummel Boy?

So just wondering why doesn't KD actually go through with this event? I mean it would be wildly popular and would be very profitable for them I'm just wondering what is holding them back?
