    What if they spruced up the current front entrance structure, with the International Restaurant still in place?

    I would love to hear songs from the early seventies in Coney Mall. Would be nice to hear Without You by Harry Nilsson over the speakers.

    Oktoberfest renovation with polka covers of oldies songs?

    There was an accident on the one at Kings Dominion which resulted in one rider being sent to the hospital for a concussion and other injuries. I originally posted the article, but deleted it due to the sensitive nature.

    Thunder Road had major structural problems due to the wood structure being unprotected and untreated for years.

    It's my pleasure. I didn't help make the playlist, but I was able to find a few of the songs. My Aunt and I were sitting along the fountains one day and she recognized the theme to The Big Country. A majority of the songs can be found on the City of Prauge Orchestra's album '100 Greatest Film Themes.'

    What if Fred Grubb was here because Rocky Mountain Construction has been traditionally retracking The Racer? Either way, it wouldn't make much sense to close the ride shortly after it got a good amount of retracking. Still hoping for a Ghostrider style treatment if any changes are being made to the ride.

    Kings Dominion Rebel Yell retracking in 2016/2017.

    I sure hope it's not an RMC conversion. That ride still gets good ridership. Would love to see a GCI retrack of it though, maybe reprofiling by Martin and Vleminckx and some Millennium Flyer trains like Wildcat at Lake Compounce or Ghostrider at Knotts. The ACE Landmark plaque is back outside the entrance to the ride, so hopefully it's not the end.

    It would make a great transmission tower, of course the radiation would be dangerous.

    Eiffel Tower Antenna

    I've always wondered what that thing was. Been there since 1972.

    I think Kings Dominion's Eiffel Tower uses the multi colored LED panels like on ours, but will sometimes use the floodlights on the cupola and under the 265' platform. They might not want to use that lighting because of The Greatest Showman fireworks display, may be too bright. I heard from one of the people on the platform that the antenna at the top was knocked off by a small plane in the early 90's.

    I've always admired the floodlighting myself. The uplighting around the base of the Tower was removed last season to accommodate the Christmas tree lights, but they remain on the top cupola.
