Do you think they installed Dominator backwards?

I don't know Gator, I'm really digging the looks of Vapor Trail at Sesame Place, the custom Roller Skater from Vekoma.

Sure BGE doesnt have many flats or kiddie/family rides, but it does have shows, which are only a hair below Orlando quality, and they also have the water rides which families tend to love too. I thought KD was a good, solid park, but when I went it was missing that "wow" coaster that I could ride over and over again. Dominator fulfills that now, but I still don't know if I would choose it over BGE.

When I lived in DC for a year, I had already been to both of those parks, and ended up picking up a Gold Pass at BGE and never going to KD (for my wooden coaster fix I also got a Hersheypark pass :)) mainly because I just love that park (great childhood memories) and with my Gold Pass I also got into WCUSA down the road, which beats the crap out of Water Works (or any other water park that doesn't have "bahn" in its name) so that wasn't much of a draw back for me.

Dominator at GL was a great ride with great placement. While I understand the point of view with it now being in a parking lot - I think many have lost sight of the fact that it is now the last thing people see as they leave the park. A lasting memory of a great visual ride with a great ride experience. In my opinion, you need both: rides inside and outside of a park.

I think Cedar Fair will continue to provide the "wow" coasters to come for KD. They said it themselves in an interview that Paramount did their part with the woodies, now they will provide the steel coasters.

I think it was a great start by taking out H:XLC. That provides a whole big area for--well we'll find out. One rumor has that spot for a Giant Frisbee, but what if it were for a hyper in the future?

I understand that they've kept the H:XLC station for a Halloween walk-through/maze, but perhaps it could be modified for a hypercoaster/other coaster in the future? How about a Maverick-type coaster? The station would be perfect for the smaller trains.

But will a B&M hyper ever happen? Here's what I don't know that someone else might; does BGE have exclusive rights due to the distance between the two parks on newly constructed B&M coasters?

I guess the last things that sways me towards KD over BGE a) the considerable price difference, and b) the shorter distance from Baltimore. With gas prices the way they are, it's just nowhere nearly as affordable. Trust me, I'd love to visit again, but I hope it's not another nine-years until their next coaster.
