Kings Dominion

Thu Aug 18, 2016 1:45 pm

Surprised we don't already have a topic for this park, but I couldn't find it in the index, apologies if I've missed it. :)

Kings Dominion has begun teasing for something coming in 2017. Photos and videos on their social media accounts show a "secret" planning room in which two key things are always featured: Snoopy, the mascot of their children's area, and a white hard hat.

Example:

Looking at the comments, the white hard hat is thought by many to be a big hint towards an RMC, which many assume would be for Hurler, as it's been SBNO all year. However, this would not explain why Snoopy is so heavily featured in the teasers. There is also a rumour of Ricochet (the park's wild mouse which sits right next to Hurler) moving to Camp Snoopy, potentially opening up more space around Hurler. I don't know if this is probable or if people have just made it up in a wild attempt to make everything in the teasers fit, but it's an interesting theory.

Below is my attempt at creating a visual of what 2017 could hold for the park if all these rumours are true. I think this could work, but I've never actually been to the park so can't be sure.

I've just realised the blue text is hard to read, it says "potential new spot for Ricochet".

So the park has their "big announcement" today, during which the most exciting thing they talked about was a few family additions in Planet Snoopy. Whilst there could be more to come, the park left no hints or teasers within the announcement towards another announcement or surprise.

That was anticlimactic.

(Sorry for double post.)

They made a huge deal about in-park WiFi too, really hope they're joking after all the marketing.

RMC truck has appeared at Kings Dominion!

Seems like Hurler has 'really more coming' if you get what I mean ;)

Kings Dominion have announced Twisted Timbers!
Remind you of anything? The RMC Hybrid will feature barrel rolls, new dynamic inversions and plenty of weightlessness. Bit shadowed by steel vengeance though.

This ride is perfectly safe. Everything has been designed for your comfort, and enjoyment.

From what I've heard, Mystic Timbers seems awesome!! It's a CGI woodie with a final scene that has interchangeable endings.
They've also done battle for kings dominion which is awesome.
