Kings Dominion's 2010 Coaster

Tuesday, June 2, 2009 10:28 PM

Kings Dominion is getting a new coaster for 2010. Supports started arriving today!

Those supports look exactly like ISpeed's. On the other hand, the shipping containers seem to be the same as the ones found at the B&M plant, and who is to say that B&M will not start using square supports? (After all, Intamin made the could B&M.)

Nevertheless, square supports sure look ugly.

Time to speculate!

Any pictures?

There is square steel all over the transfers and other parts of B&M rides.

I'd be happy with either, although if it's the long-rumored hyper, I might just be slightly more excited if it was Intamin. Where are the supports? Parking lot?

This park needs a hyper so bad, as does Carowinds. I think both may get one in 2010.

It'd be awesome to see CF start installing B&M hypers into all of the old paramount parks! Seems like the best bet. First Canada's Wonderland, then Kings Island, and we pretty much know for sure Carowinds is getting one. Kings Dominion could be next!

The B&M hypers so far have proven to be very popular very well received at Wonderland and Kings Island! I hope that they don't recycle the name or layout of either of these rides though.

"Diamondback! New for 2010 at Carowinds!"

Hmm, I could've sworn I added a link to the pictures to the first post...

Did someone remove it?

No one edited your post but you.

Alright, well here is the link to the pictures. (I'll add it to the first post, as well.)

Was there not pictures of lots of Yellow track at the B&M plant here in Cincinnati when the Diamondback pictures came out?

^^Track, sure, but supports??

Those bolt hole patterns don't look like B&M and I can't think of many B&M's that show up in shipping containers.

If it is B&M, it could be station or transfer track supports.

I'd like to see a B&M hyper where ever I go!

If it was B&M, the supports would have come on a flat bed truck. Those look like overseas shipping containers to me.

My vote is Intamin.

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

^^Son of Volcano! Yes!! I can't wait to ride... ;)

All coaster manufacturers have used different shaped supports at one time or another. The supports that have arrived already are shorter ones, and therefore can be stacked easier in a container with a lot of others, so I don't think it matters if they are imports or not.

I don't know what this is, but I would be VERY surprised if KD didn't have a B&M hyper in the next 3 or 4 years.

This picture pretty much proves that this will be an Intamin coaster: (Scroll to the very bottom and look at picture '006')
