  1. There are some major trees around the train. It would look amazing if there were lights in them. It would also be labor-intensive to do that
  2. I’m not a fan of any Christmas lights on metal frames in general. I prefer them on trees shrubs or buildings.
  3. Tinseltown That’s an area that can get stronger with more 50s 60s style decorations. Placing The Mistletones in that area was a great move last year.
  4. The Blue Ridge Tollway runs atKings Dominion Winterfest. Since part of the damage the Paramount did to that park was removing the train, the antique cars there are the 12 days of Christmas ride It would be nice if they would refresh some of the less produced shows like The Mistletones, Jingle Jazz, Sounds of the Nativity with new songs.
  5. My guess is the programmer(s) of the finale maybe has(have) technical lighting knowledge but not musical knowledge The two songs of the finale are strong dance beat songs that would allow for a lot of choreographed synchronization. The Pigeon Forge show is a good example of syncing to the music
  6. I previously was lambasted on this board fior criticizing the programming of the fountains. It was probably by whoever programmed them lol. But the fountains have nearly no synchronization to the music during the finale, and none during gvthe day. Sure they change colors and patterns during the finale, but it’s not the high level of synchronization that is possible They have SO much potential, but it will take someone that knows music phrasing and counts to program them to do that.
  7. What the park needs: 1. TREES. As the park ages, they keep cutting down trees with no replacement. It's becoming pretty miserable in the heat. 2. Investment in true family rides (dark rides, skyway, etc). Rides that everyone can ride together no matter age, height, weight, etc. THIS is why Disney is so well attended, and all the rest of the theme parks are missing out on this market. Bringing back the Antique Cars was a very wise step in this direction. 3. Oktoberfest renovation and flat ride package 4. Action Zone retheming (Transylvania). With this a world-class dark ride like the Phantom Theatre once was.
  8. Kings Dominion had the same coaster until 83. They used the standard Galaxi name for it. There was a fatality on it in 83. I believe a kid riding alone hit his head. The ride didn’t have much excess clearance and I have seen statements that he may have stood up. These were SDC rides. They had 2 car trains. Schwarzkopf Wildcats use individual cars. The Galaxii has 2 helixes and then a swerve around the lift hill, another turn then brakes. The Wildcats have two helixes then straight into the brakes out of the second helix. It’s a jolting stop on the wildcats.
  9. What I understand is the parks own the campgrounds, and they are just KOA franchises. The Kings Dominion campground is great. So close to the park and covered/surrounded by trees just like that park.
  10. Kings Island is the worst park for smoking outside the designated areas. There is no enforcement and the announcements are not often enough and not forceful enough.
  11. A sign of poor operations when a racing coaster doesn’t race.
  12. The layout and length are disappointing. Something like Fury would have been much better. Diamondback has a more interesting layout. But at least it’s not a poorly designed Intamin.
  13. I’m at Kings Dominion. Same ownership. Park is just two years less older thank KI. Restrooms are updated, STAFFED, air conditioned, clean and no smell. No reason KI can’t be like that. Attendance is no reason because increased attendance should equate to more restrooms and more staff It must be individual park management priorities
  14. I wish some American park had installed Huss’s giant dream boat. That ride looks incredible. Its odd Nagashima installed two as the capacity of one is huge Ark
  15. Raving coasters are my favorite But Racing coasters are so rare and ones that actually closely race are even more race The racing aspect at KI is really bad this year. Until recently my visit last week, red reached the lift hill first. Reds lift is faster than blue. Then the new turn around is much faster than the other side. The trains aren’t interacting much this year. I hear Kings Dominion put a computerized lift hill on their Racer to make them actually race this year. I am looking forwArd to that if true. Before this year it had the same pre-lift hill, varying chain lift issue as Kings Island. Racer 75 is a better version oh Kings Islands anyway as it doesn’t split after the third hill, has an excellent floater hill for the third Jill, has the hill that KI removed and a real tunnel as the finale. Going along with Six Flags poor operations, American Eagle did not race last year on purpose The ops were instructed to stagger the trains Lightning Racer at Hershey was designed to race perfectly but sometimes the age of the track affects one side more than the other
