News & Rumors

Kings Dominion
Doswell, VA
Cedar Fair Entertainment

 

 

icon_STOPPark News - (7/7/16) If you've never been to Kings Dominion, you might enjoy the latest video from In The Loop showing off all the park's current coasters. Follow the link and check it out.
    (6/8/16) (Updated) Kings Dominion and Carowinds are swapping some management positions this month. Carowinds VP & GM, Brad Marcy, has moved out of Carowinds already (after just joining in 2015) to take on a new position at the Cedar Fair corporate office.
    Pat Jones, VP and GM of Kings Dominion will be relocating to the Charlotte area to take over as the new VP and GM of Carowinds.
    Meanwhile, Carowind's Gary Chadwick (VP of Food & Retail Ops) will be heading to Kings Dominion to serve as that park's new VP and GM, which is actually a homecoming of sorts for him as he started his theme park career at Kings Dominion back in 1999, traveling from England to take part in the park's first season of hosting international students to work at the park.
    (6/7/16) A picture posted on Twitter shows off a large land clearing being made out behind Intimidator 305 at Kings Dominion. Anyone know for sure what this is for? According to one source, they believe it may be a launching area for fireworks.
    (3/23/16) So why is Hurler closed? According to several sources, including a post at KDFans, the park's PR & Communications Manager, Katelyn Sherwood, confirmed that Hurler would reopen in 2017 after an extensive renovation. No more details have been mentioned, and while there are those already shouting for RMC to come in and take a crack at it, I have a feeling that GCI will be coming in over the summer to work on it once their crew is finished with GhostRider in California.
    Why do I say this? In addition to the fact that Cedar Fair has yet to tap RMC for anything yet, GCI already has some extensive history with Hurler... kinda. You see, for the past couple of years GCI has had crews reworking Hurler's clone at Carowinds with much success. It may simply be time to take what they've learned in the Carolinas and apply it to the KD sibling.
    (3/21/16) The new park map for Kings Dominion shows something unexpected this season... that their wooden coaster, Hurler, will be closed for the entire 2016 season. Quite strange and unexpected... anyone know more about what is going on to cause this?

 

icon_STOP2016 - Delirium - (3/21/16) Kings Dominion held a media day for the new Delirium attraction and KDFans has posted their report on the park's newest attraction.
    (2/24/16) Kings Dominion has posted a construction update for their new Delirium ride this week, showing how the 100,000 pound motor was lifted into place.
    (2/5/16) The parts and pieces for Delirium are on site at Kings Dominion, just waiting to be set up. The park posted some pictures of them on their official Blog.
    (8/25/15) I'm told that instead of being a Huss Super Frisbee, the new Delirium ride going into Kings Dominion is expected to be the similar Mondial Revolution ride.

2016_delirium_art

Kings Dominion confirmed plans to add Delirium to Candy Apple Grove in 2016. Delirium will be a 40-passenger swinging pendulum style ride that will rock guests 115 feet into the air at an arc angle of 120
    (7/10/15) Kings Dominion confirmed to the local media that the park would be removing the Shockwave stand-up coaster (TOGO) in August to allow for future use of that site for the Candy Apple Grove section of the park. Last ride to ride is August 9th. 
    (5/7/15) The latest Kings Dominion video report from In The Loop reports on rumors for a possible 2016/2017 project and the possible removal of a coaster from the park. Yep... people have been waiting for this one to happen, but they believe that Shockwave could be removed at the end of the season, as the last standing TOGO Stand-Up Coaster on the continent.
