While the area around the coaster looks a little short on eye-candy, foliage, or anything other than dirt, the coaster itself looks like a lot of fun.
I may make it out to KD towards the end of the summer when I fly back to Annandale, VA to visit some friends. If I do make it to the park, this coaster definitely looks like it would be the first stop on my KD Touring Plan!
The front seat had the novelty of absolutely no floor but the best ride was in the back row. The inversions are very much like those of the inverted Alpengeist (at BGE) and similar in intensity. The ride is "B&M smooth" but a little "shakier" than other B&M's (but not jerky, in any way). The arrangement of the relatively long track and various features into a compact area is well done. The lines moved very quickly; something KD has never seen. My favorite sensations were the first drop (back row), the tall loop (back row), the general nearness to the ground/people/structures (front row) and the resulting impression of speed and change of direction. Seats were comfortable and attractive. The view of the track from anywhere and everywhere and the constant roar (again, a GOOD sound) are unmatched. All seats are "good seats". Decent, brief air-time is experienced on the 1st hill and after the MCBR, but the strength of Dominator is in the inversions and uniqueness of the layout.
Negatives: There is no theming and no scenic/landscaping value at this point. Painting has not been completed. The attendant made me remove my tightly strapped-on prescription glasses on my SECOND ride. (No explanation.)
