I said yesterday to compare the animation to the webcam - YOU'VE DONE IT.

Rocket Express station is on the grave site of the Blues Clues house. *sigh* So many memories

I'm glad they are bringing life back to that area as for the past half a decade it has been dead. I really really wish they would have built an entrance to Planet Snoopy right there too off of the Dominator walkway.

Re: Official Planet Snoopy Topic
Well I think our beliefs of what it is looks right compared to what KD just posted!! It's definitely Woodstock's Whirlybirds Big Grin

I heard that these webcams were bought when Paramount owned the park and Gene Petriello is too cheap to find the money in the budget to buy a new one. He is notorious for screwing up the marketing budget though, so it probably wouldn't end up well.

Re: Official Planet Snoopy Topic
Honestly, it is a kiddie area revamp. Just be happy we have a webcam at all.

RE: Official Planet Snoopy Topic
Based on the latest Planet Snoopy webcam picture, it appears the station for the kiddie train ride is going up. Not hard to see, even with the poor camera resolution. It is just behind and to the left of the Woodstock Whirlybirds teacup ride.

RE: Official Planet Snoopy Topic
It looks like the kiddie train concrete foundation for the track is complete! They finished pouring the last of the concrete in the past hour. The camera resolution stinks; but, you can see the U-turn the train will make just as it re-enters the station. (The long stretch with the roof supports. I believe the train will depart the station to the right (behind the teacup ride) and return back to the station from the left side.

Anyone know if Kings Dominions train will be a 4-car or 5-car train? The one at Dorney Park had 4 cars (Engine, open car, open car, caboose). The one at Cedar Point was a 5-car train (Engine, open car, partially enclosed car, open car, caboose). I think Dorney's is shorter because the length of track is shorter compared to the one at Cedar Point. I don't think Dorney Park had the land to create a longer ride. Based on the you-tube videos I have seen of Dorney's kiddie train, I think Kings Dominion's track layout is longer. So I was wondering if we were getting the 4-car or 5-car train.

The kiddie train should be a nice addition for the kids, but it is on the grave site of Teasure Cave. RIP

If only we could get a full size train and monorail!

The latest webcam mini-update. The 2 vertical supports, that you can see in the webcam picture, for Snoopy's Rocket Express are up. There was a small hydraulic crane sitting on the right side of the webcam picture

I'm sure you guys have already seen this, but the KD Sweet Frog facebook is giving better coverage of the area than KD at this point.

RE: Official Planet Snoopy Topic
Kings Dominion has added new Planet Snoopy photos to their Facebook site. These photo highlights include close ups of the kiddie train, Charlie Browns Wind-up (swings), more Snoopy Rocket Express pictures, and the new fountain plaza next to the Peanuts Showplace.
