• Crypt Replacement Appears Immune to the Coronavirus Good news seems to be in rather short supply lately—and reasonably so. COVID-19 is no joke and I hope all of our readers are taking it very seriously. The best way to get back to the parks we all love so much is to flatten the curve and get this coronavirus under control as soon as […] Zachary 0 Comments April 2, 2020
  • Kings Dominion 2021 Roller Coaster Rumors Will Send Enthusiasts into a Spin Kings Dominion’s last coaster, Twisted Timbers, was teased relentlessly by the park ahead of its announcement with one phrase: “Really More Coming.” I’d like to propose a similar idea for Kings Dominion’s rumored 2021 roller coaster: “Shock & Surprise.“ Why? I’ll get to that in a moment. Before we go any further though, I have […] Zachary 0 Comments March 2, 2020

  • Construction & Demolition Aside from the monotonous hum of computer fans dutifully spinning away, all was quiet. Zachary slowly strolled down the line of server racks until he found it—the machine labeled KDFans. He gently pulled the server forward, and as the drawer slid out, it became clear that he was opening a time capsule. The server, itself, was still quietly performing its long-time function—presenting years of old content […] Zachary 0 Comments June 15, 2018
  • Chef Paul's Plans for 2016 As all y’all know, Zachary, Luke, and I were lucky enough to be invited to Kings Dominion’s Media Day on March 18th. Although we have already written about their great, new thrill ride, Delirium, we haven’t covered the other fantastic part of that lovely Friday: Chef Paul’s food. After we had ridden the park’s new frisbee, we […] Nicole 0 Comments March 22, 2016
  • Hurler is Closed for 2016 What’s Going On?! As we leaked on our Facebook page the other day, the “black sheep” of Kings Dominion’s wooden roller collection, Hurler, is officially “Closed for Season.” Below we’ve included a picture showing the notice displayed beside the ride on this year’s map. Naturally, since that post, we have seen the entire spectrum of passionate […] Zachary 0 Comments March 21, 2016

In our opinion […] Nicole 0 Comments March 19, 2016
  • Catching Up with Chef Paul It has been a while since we reported on foodie news at Kings Dominion, but within the past week we have attended Tower Tasting and gotten a preview of upcoming events from Chef Paul. So, it seemed like a great time for an update.   [aesop_chapter title=”Tower Tastings” bgtype=”img” full=”on” img=”https://kdfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/IMG_6136.jpg”]         […] Nicole 0 Comments September 20, 2015
  • Soak City Construction Tour Last week Kings Dominion was kind enough to grant Nicole (my co-admin), Luke (our photographer), and me (Zachary) full access to the construction site of the park’s largest area overhaul since the launch of Planet Snoopy: the complete renovation and rebranding of the park’s water park from WaterWorks to Soak City. For anyone who hasn’t […] Zachary 0 Comments April 6, 2015
