Cedar Fair Entertainment
Park News - (9/23/15) Cedar Fair is trying their luck again to see if they can sell off the chain's last Togo Stand-Up coaster, Kings Dominion's Shockwave. The coaster is now listed as being for sale at ITAL.
(8/11/15) Shockwave's Last Stand was on Sunday and In The Loop was there to say goodbye, shoot some video and interview some riders about their last spin on this departing Kings Dominion coaster.
(7/30/15) In a very odd rumor... the word going around is that when Cedar Fair signed a deal with the Dale Earnhart family to use the name Intimidator for two coasters (Carowinds' Intimidator and Kings Dominion's Intimidator 305) the deal was only signed for a very short 5-term term. While I would think there would be an extension option at the end of the term, 5-years is a bit short when I believe a good number of theme park related contracts are typically for 10-year terms. What's been adding fuel to the fire however is the fact that all the Intimidator branded merchandise at Carowinds is now being sold at up to 65% off and up to 40% off at Kings Dominion.
So if the park is trying to sell off all their Intimidator merchandise now... then I have to wonder just what they are planning on renaming the coasters as for the 2016 season. Anyone know anything more about this situation?
2016 - Delirium - Confirmed - (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.
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 120º
(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.
