Cedar Fair Entertainment
Park News - (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?

(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.
(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.
