Evan asked me to open up a Picture Request Thread for Kings Dominion. He's at the park now so if you want anything, here's the place to ask for it.

I heard a rumor that KD was not finished with laying pavers in the park. Someone stated that the park was going to work on the area around the Eiffel Tower during the next 2-3 weeks. Did Evan notice any paver work done around the tower? Just trying to confirm if this was true or not.

I took some pictures of the areas around the Eiffel Tower in case I was mistaken, but from what I can, there is no new pavers around the Eiffel Tower. I will upload the pictures in a bit. Sadly they were taken with my phone instead of my camera because my camera decided to die as soon as I got to the Eiffel Tower.

For those who are interested, here is an album of images that I took as I circled the Eiffel Tower lower perimeter.

It's late and I don't feel like put all of the images in code.

Yes, the park did add pavers along part of the path around the Eiffel Tower. The section of the path in front of the Planet Snoopy entrance, from International street, has been done. Look at the 2 pictures you took of the gift kiosk with the Snoopy moon bounce in the background. That section of the circular path around the Eiffel tower was asphalt when I went opening weekend. It has been redone in a different style of paver (same brick red color); but with square and rectangle pavers. The pavers in Planet Snoopy are all regular brick size (rectangle) pavers in a herring-bone pattern. You can tell where the delineation line is between the two sections of pavers in your pictures.

I am not sure if this is all Kings Dominion is going to do for this year or if they will do more sections, while the park is still closed during the week days in spring. I get the feeling the park tries out the new pavers on a small section of a path to get a feel for the look of it and, if they like it, the park does a whole section sometime in the near future. KD did this when they replaced part of the asphalt path to Planet Snoopy either in 2012 or 2011. They laid pavers down next to the former Splash Dance area on down toward the entrance to the Peanut's gift shop. Just past the shop entrance, the path leading to Kidzville section went back to asphalt.
