Damn, lots of new posts since I last checked in. I ended up taking a shot every time someone asked the same question about the butter cabinets and put myself in a coma for 2 days.
Quoted from jetspeedb:
Paramounts Kings Dominion. Was a great park back then with all those licenses. Still a good park but nothing like it was.
In the mid-90s, when I was like 11-12 my parents really pissed me off going into King's Dominion. Yelling fight right at the turnstyles. Then we go in and Fred Flintstone was right there and ran up trying to give me a hug.
Not having one iota of that I loaded up the best right hand I could deliver to his gut. Felt great. Then, as someone who never gets motion sickness, got the worst case of it on the first ride (Days of Thunder). I've had better starts to theme park days. Overall good park though. The Hurler had just opened and it kicked ass!
To this day if my sister's family and ours go to a theme park, she holds me back when we walk in for the cast member's safety. And if KD's Fred is a member here - I owe you a beer sometime.
