Seen in this Photo is has become clear to me that Kings Dominion is going to add some ride about Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life. No other details are available, but thats from the old Diamond Falls site.
I'm guessing that it will be a Top Spin like the one at Kings Island. There are also rumors of construction near Avalanche for another flat. My guess is that it will be a Giant Frisbee like Delirum at Kings Island as well.
This is a welcome addition because Kings Dominion needs more flats. Sure, I'd gladly take a new coaster, but this is better than nothing. The GP will be split in deciding which flat to ride, meaning lines will be half as long! I'll be on Drop Zone! ;)
------------------ Free Falls on Drop Zone: 5! Batwing Flights: 7! Superman: Ride of Steel Airtime-age: 10!
Wow, I'm surprised they're starting this early. I don't think it will be quite as eleborate as the King's Island site because the plot of land isn't as big, that is unless they relocate some things again. ------------------ If you have a problem with clones, the solution is real simple—Stop traveling.
Well, I must say I'm impressed. I figured on a Scooby Doo Dark ride and/or a Runaway Reptar. I think PKD and PGA are the only 2 left with out a variation on one or the other..... I'll be happy w/this though, as I've yet to ride Tomb Raider. Is it just me, or does it seem as if Paramount Parks are trying to add the same rides to all their parks? Not that I'm complaining in the least, the parks are no where near each other, and I only hit one every couple of years or so....
------------------ Yeah, if coasters WEREN'T men we'd have Raging Cow instead!;)
It probably is related,I mean look at all the paramount parks & you'll see they each have a drop zone ride as of now.
TR:TR is just gonna end up being cloned at all of the paramount parks just like DZ & delerium for the most part were,the only things PKD is now missing are a face off clone,a reptar clone,a scooby doo dark ride & some sort of version of SOB,in PKD's case themed after Grizzly with a name such as son of grizzly.
Unlike SF which clone a ride/coaster (usually a coaster) at a handfull of their 40 parks paramount seems more interested in cloning major rides at all of it's parks.
ah, yes, I forgot about the Tomb Raider touring thing, this could just be part of that. I was thinking PKD would get a super saturator, Runaway Reptar, or Scooby Doo ride, but they could pull a fast one on me and do this. I'd like to ride TR:TR, and hope to before year's end, but in all honesty, I'd like something a little more origional @ PKD, if they don't go with the above.... ------------------ Yeah, if coasters WEREN'T men we'd have Raging Cow instead!;)
I see a fence and some advertising for the film--is that enough proof to declare that the park is getting this ride? I think the state of that area is enough to warrant a fence covering it; perhaps the movie props being there are just a coincidence?
The pictures are not fake. It only seems like the Tomb Raider Stunt Show will be at Carowinds, Great America, and Canada's Wonderland. The other two have not mentioned it(atleast not yet). All signs seem to point that PKD is getting a Tomb Raider ride themed to this summer's upcoming movie, meaning the ride will most likely be a little different. The statues, the props, and I am sure the ride scenario will be different than PKI's version. It is not exactly adding all the same rides to their parks, mostly the same names, but it is kind of a given to add a Tomb Raider ride to PKD considering they do have a Congo themed area.
