I'm not ready to go that far. And my Cedar Point experience gives me some pause, as well. It was much prettier than a few years ago, but I'm not impressed with coaster maintenance. It may not be the same park, but it is the same company.Pretzel Kaiser said:KD is quickly becoming better than BGW, the park should be terrified at this point.
I really don't have my hopes up for Volcano, but hopefully the facade gets refreshed and the godawful inside is covered up better. The station also needs dusting, badly.Zachary said:New trains on Anaconda could save the ride and I'm very curious about the changes coming to Volcano...
They haven't announced specifics but when you get a chance, you need to watch the video- it's a look back at the park's history like none I've ever seen a park do previously. It shows they really care about what they were and have their eyes set on becoming that charming amusement park once again. More power to them.Nic said:I can't watch the video at work. What are they doing to the Grove?
You aren't talking about the frightening Smurf Blue stuff they used to sell?b.mac said:Their famous Blue Ice Cream is supposed to be really good from what I've heard with long time visitors.
Those who grew up with Kings Dominion will also notice the return of many original park icons next season, including:
The homecoming of the park’s classic blue ice cream, which was a hit with families for decades.
A complete restoration of the iconic International Street fountain, which will include a new LED lighting package and additional refurbishments.
Reintroduction of one of the park’s original classic midways, Candy Apple Grove. This re-themed area will include new ride lighting packages, return of the classic over-sized candy apples along the midway and other surprises.
The return of Safari Village (formerly the Congo area of the park) and will include exciting improvements to Volcano: The Blast Coaster and one of the park’s older roller coasters, Anaconda.
