Kings Dominion RMC Hurler Update #3 7-27-17
Welcome to our third update on Kings Dominion’s Iron Horse conversion of their wooden coaster Hurler into an epic hybrid coaster by Rocky Mountain Construction. Thanks to Jason D. for the photos.
As seen, Hurler has now been topped off and ledgers are in place for the ride’s drop. The lift hill has grown quite a bit- perhaps to 111 feet as the park’s teasers for this new coaster have suggested?
As you can see, the ride looks so bare without any track on, but soon the beautiful brown-bronze track will be on there.
Track for the brake run is now installed.
One of the ledgers is slightly titled- perhaps suggesting a curved barrel roll drop? This would be a certainly unique feature to the Mid-Atlantic region, as there is no coaster in the Mid-Atlantic region with a curved barrel roll drop.
Here’s a look from the park’s Eiffel Tower just showing how much new wood has been added to Hurler making the ride’s lift hill and airtime hill (by WindSeeker) taller.
You can obviously see that slanted ledger. It’ll be interesting to see if the drop is curved.
Here’s a look at how Hurler is looking nowadays. There’s definetly lots of new wood structure being added to make this more new coaster more thrilling and exciting.
The park will be announcing all the details of their 2018 new attraction, the RMC remake of Hurler, on August 16th. We will most likely have coverage of it, so stay tuned to our social media channels for it.
