Paramount's Kings Dominion sends along this invitation:
We want to end our season the same way we began it: with a special walkback for coaster enthusiasts this Saturday, October 27th. We'd like all our coaster enthusiast friends to meet our Public Relations reps down the walkway behind The Berserker at 10 a.m. We will give you the option of walking back to HyperSonic or walking back to Volcano and will take each group down to their "launch of choice" prior to opening the bottom of the park to the general public.

A good idea. This should be a good thing for both publicity and atendance. use this last weekend well it's going to be a long winter.

This is a great idea. I wish I could be there. (I also wish PKD would offer a walkback EVERY morning, like PKI, but that's another story.)

Hey Chitown, please close this topic and kick both of them off the furoms (sic). 2Hostyl and Jack Daniels No 7 do not belong in these forums at all. Plus 2Hostyl seems to have a problem to complaine (sic) alot and get into it with others. - IL_MForce_Junk

Volcano in the front seat is totally worth it. Executing those rolls in the front is like nothing else I've ever seen, not to mention the climb out of the volcano. Very cool!

I've been on Volcano a total of four times, 3 of those being in the front. The two night rides I got this year were in the front, on a clear sky, stars everywhere...when we shot out of that mountain straight up into the picture perfect sky it was surreal. One of the lasting memories of that coaster.
Cedar Piont is nothing with out MF. Come to SFMM and see whats happening. Just give us a Giga coaster and bam. CP out of the pic.

I agree on the front of Volcano. Maybe the most impressive visual of any coaster. It's too bad that I won't be able to make it this weekend.

I've mentioned that to the park. Who knows what they have in store.... they are kicking around a few things, maybe even a discount? Only time will tell!

Is the event for ACE members only? The park says that coaster enthusiasts are invited on walkbacks. So that could be anyone.

What's a walkback?
Wednesday, October 24, 2001 3:07 PM
zepfoowez, a walkback is where a group of just coaster enthusiasts are taken to the coaster by a park representative and ride it before the GP even gets to ride. It lasts about 30 minutes maybe but you can get lots of rides in, in that short amount of time. I really wanna go to this havent been there in a few years wanna ride Hypersonic and ride Volcano again. Might get out there this weekend.
1.) Beast 2.) Phantom's Revenge 2.) SROS (SFNE) 4.) SROS (SFDL) 5.) MF
