Kings Dominion appears to be getting a small B&M Wing coaster for 2021.

At first I was underwhelmed, this layout made X-Flight look like a long ride. But then I looked at the aerial of X-Flight and compared it. They look relatively similar in length, but X-Flight is about 20 feet taller. I hope that KD brings back the loop, and final helix, to "complete" the layout. As it stands, it's just a drop (counts as an inversion) and then four back-to-back inversions with a single helix included.

DORNEY PARK ATTRACTION
MAJOR PLAN 2020-102
REQUEST FOR PRELIMINARY/FINAL PLAN REVIEW
An application to further develop the property located at 3830 Dorney Park Road. The plan proposes to remove an existing attraction, construct a new attraction, associated walkways and access drives, and relocate a portion of the existing Zephyr train ride. The new attraction will be approximately 106 feet tall (419.5 feet above MSL). The project proposes a net reduction of impervious surface. The property is zoned CR Commercial Recreation. Dorney Park LLC is the owner and applicant.

This appears to be a bigger version of Switchback at ZDT's.

It looks to be next to Possessed, but Possessed it not shown, could Possessed be getting relocated to Great America?

I'm glad to see a new coaster, but at the same time am a little disappointed to see it replacing an existing coaster after already losing Stinger a few years ago.

 

On the other hand, I can understand why they would remove Possessed. Besides the high operating costs of the launches, the coaster has never been reliable. It seems like the coaster has at least some downtime on most of my trips to the park.

They will probably just scrap Possessed.  There is a saw cut and new curb in the site plan where the ride entrance is.

Supposedly it was now removed from the agenda. If true it’s a solid sign 2021 is going to be real lite on the addition front. Not surprising in these uncertain times.

Screamscape reports that there are rumors that CF may close all of its parks for the season after Labor Day. Would not be surprised if that happens to Dorney.
