Ok, it's time wrangle all of this discussion into one place. Going forward, this is the thread for rumors and discussion about Hurler's potential return in 2018.
Or on their Planet Snoopy expansion that is slated to open next season...horsesboy said:I was driving up to Dc for the weekend and took a minor detour and drove down the road next to KD. I couldn't see much but there are signs that say staging area and an entrance cone off that has construction sign on it. So it looks like they may be prepping to start work shortly after the park closes this week.
Low to the ground turns, overbanks, ect. Hurler's layout offers a plethora of potential. Hell, even the amount of land they can work with.madmax said:How do you think they'll improve the overall layout with the track being so low to the ground?
One can hope.coasterdude205 said:I did a quick sketch up of what's there and area to expand if they did and it got me to thinking, if KD took hurler all the way past ricochet to do a turn around at the rebel yell/entrance to back water park it would look very cool. Going through the woods there could give it a feeling like grizzly almost which I really enjoy. Also the amount of land behind it is almost the same size of land hurler is already on.
I think you totally missed the point of my post, so please let me make it simple. I don't dislike the additions they've had since i305 and I understand that any well-rounded park, but given their recent history, I don't expect a huge change to Hurler with the retrack. CF has clearly made the conscious decision to divert a lot of their funds for new attractions and improvements to Carrowinds, which is a business decision. As a result, KD is the one that gets the leftover scraps. Why is KD getting a medium size flying frizbee instead of a larger one? Why is KD getting two kiddy area expansions close to each other? Because that's all CF is willing to give them.RollyCoaster said:That is all stuff us enthusiasts pick at. I thought the food was fine, just expensive (arguably the biggest complaint amongst park guests). Running out of cups sounds like a good thing to me, shows that they expected lower attendance numbers. People don't care what's on the cup, they care about the refills. KD has gotten many things since I305. We have seen several flat rides, a waterpark expansion, dinos, park improvements, and more.
KD is fine. You sound like KD has done nothing yet, they have. I don't see this "bad image" you explained. I see otherwise. Sometimes it's the small things that count. KD just needed to fix what needed to be fixed before adding another coaster. Guest complained KD added nothing but coasters. They would say there wasn't enough for them to do. KD listened to it's guest and decided to add more than just coasters. KD added waterslides, shows, Kid's rides for the little ones, thrill rides to accommodate us thrill seekers. Getting tempered over a rollercoaster? A coaster has been the last thing KD had on there minds since 2010.
Just out of curiosity, What's wrong with a conversion? That's what we all wanted, KD listened, they post a video hinting RMC, people still aren't happy. You can't please everybody.
You're new here so you may not know this, but this line of responding to critique of the parks has been used multiple times in the past, is flat out insulting to those who voice concerns about a park, and never leads anywhere good. I'm not trying to threaten you, but in the past that line has never ended up anywhere good.If you truly hate what KD has done to the park, Six Flags America is about an hour away from said Kings Dominion.
