Its a color(s)... which can be seen from outside of the park...

It is not like you are telling us the park plans for 2012 and beyond! Haha. :lol:

Oh, and this doesn't seem as secretive as this (see below), since it can be seen only inside the park unlike Shockwave's colors...

Quote:...talk about The Grove! its going threw a facelift at the moment. When I was at the park the other day Grove was getting some love! Shocwaves new paint, new paint on buildings, Wave Swinger was being fixed up.

But the most big new thing I saw was new Flower Planters being added to Grove, Two new huge ones are now in front of Dodgems and one right beside that infrot of the bball hoop game next to ski ball. They are huge round planters made of stone that are now filling a once nothing space.

Just saying... Not trying to start a fight or be annoying...

Re: Official Shockwave Topic
^Yeah I understand you make a valid point, but technically we're still not allowed to talk about it. Luckily, the color can be seen from outside the park, so maybe someone who lives close to the park (besides me) would be gracious enough to take a picture... not sure of the progress they've made on it as of now. And concerning the other post, well let's just say I wouldn't have posted that... KYLE

But again Alex4hokies, you do make a valid point, but it's the principle of the thing. I'm sorry.

I'm just gonna say "Best Park Employee since 2009..."

True but given the color descriptions of green track & teal supposrts & looking at CF's history of using this color combination on other coasters in the chain I think it's a safe guess to say that they used the Raptor color scheme for shockwave.

Raptor & Hydra are the only two coasters in the CF chain that have green track/teal supports....just remembered that Wild thing at VF also uses that color scheme as well.Anyhow it'll be a welcome change from the colors that have made the ride look like such an eyesore over the last ten years.

Re: Official Shockwave Topic
Thanks for posting the pictures! :mrgreen: Took a lot of zooming!

I know many will probably disagree, but I love the new colors! They won't fade anywhere near as bad as the neon puke colors did. The green and teal will go well in the Grove and it is something unique for Kings Dominion! I can't wait to see the station painted... because it looked rediculous with the neon colors.

oooo yeah, I forgot that they'll most likely have to repaint that also. Will be interesting to see how that turns out. I was one of the very few people who didn't mind the "neon puke colors" lol It was very... colorful & I got a happy go lucky feeling everytime I walked by it haha Tongue! But I'm also one of those people who rarely ever notices when a coaster needs a paint job so I guess that last statement isn't really saying much lol

I usually really, REALLY dislike the color teal on pretty much anything but for some reason it doesn't look that bad on shockwave.
