Kings Dominion teases new attraction for 2013
King's Dominion's website is teasing a new attraction
for 2013. The teaser features a rocketship in space with the tagline "BREAKING RECORDS..AGAIN" and "THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS SEPTEMBER 12th (my birthday!)
I'm figuring it may be a launch coaster similar to Magic Mountain's Bizarro/Superman..without that height. It's a small footprint, and would give the park THREE launched coasters. I think THAT's what they mean by breking records, as I can't think, offhand, of another park that has as many. But of course, anything is pure speculation at this early stage of the game.
KD already has 3 launch coasters -- Volcano, Back Lot Stunt Coaster, and Flight of Fear. They had 4 for a bit, with XLC. So I don't think a new launch coaster would itself break a record.
As noted above, Kings Dominion already has three launched coasters, and I can think of at least two other Cedar Fair parks that do as well (Knott's has Montezooma's Revenge, Xcelerator, and Pony Express, and Cedar Point has Wicked Twister, Top Thrill Dragster, and Maverick). I don't believe there is any park that currently has four launced coasters, however.
I completely forgot about Backlot Stunt Coaster, And when thinking of CP, I forgot about Wicked Twister and Maverick. And I really hope the "record" they're going for in NOT "most kiddie rides."
I'm thinking Planet Snoopy expansion too - they just added a "thrill" ride with WindSeeker, so it's a good chance for the park to return to the family side of things.
Maybe it is one of those reverse drop tower rides that instead shoots you up the tower (kind of like the one they have at IOA).
