KD has really been slack on letting us know updates about Dominator. I've been checking coastercrew and the last thing there was the track is finished but no hearing of test runs or anything. All I know is that its supposed to open Memorial weekend but they'll probably have a soft openeing as well.

Oh, crap.... I just remembered. My temple (I'm a jew) is going to KD, and its either may or june, they're not sure... dang, this one is gonna have a LOT of suspense. Anyway, who's coastercrew? I've never heard of it.

I heard somewhere that it is supposed to open up in May. Eli, I also have get a season pass to Kings Dominion as well. Do you have a season pass to here? I have a Six Flags, Kings Dominion, & Busch Gardens season pass.

Dang, Lawrence! You are either rich or a coaster enthusiast (i'm not YET) or somtin... Anyway, NO. I don't have a season pass to KD OR BGE. I do have one to SF (I may have said that in another one...), though. I go to KD 1ce a year, with my temple. I'm in this program, and one of our "fun" trips is to KD, so i don't have a season pass. The car trip is 2 h. and 15 min., about, so i don't think it would be worth it anyway. We go either late May or early june, but I STILL really wanna ride dominator.

Oh, yeah, and why were you asking if I had a season pass? did you wanna go together one time or something?

Hey Eli, first & foremost, no I'm not rich not the least bit..LOL. Sure I would love to go to KD. Actually, the car trip isn't that long for me. It usually takes me about an hour & a half tops. I hit Route 301 to avoid the traffic. But I e-mailed you my contact info. Give me a holla.

Christy, looks like me, you, & Eli are going to have to get up one day & have a day of riding roller coasters. Let's make it happen!

May 20th has been announced as Media Day for Dominator (I can save the media some time if they want my videos of it running at Geauga lake...)

THANK YOU STEVE.... I really needed that, because I was starting to panic (just kidding).

Uh, I just checked the site (the other one is before i checked) and they said that it opens (@ KD, of course) on the 24th. It doesn't matter that much though.
