^Ancestors of mine are in both of the graveyards on Kings Dominion property. Their house was burned by the fire department after the land was sold to the park.

At the park in line for Twisted Timbers. They're only running one train and it looks to be about a 45 minute wait. Someone with an RMC shirt is walking around the maintenance areas and on the transfer track. There's also 2 sets of brake fins on a workbench next to the transfer track. My guess is they're in the process of installing more agressive brakes.

I tried looking up the graveyards on the property but couldn't find anything. I find this incredibly fascinating! Could someone please provide me with more information/pictures? Cemetery enthusiasm is second to my roller coaster enthusiasm lol!

^The more hidden graveyard is called Cedar Hill Cemetery, and I believe there are other graves in the parking lot. Here's a site that shows Cedar Hill Cemetery on a map with some pics. Here is some more information, including directions.

Slightly off topic but if your into grave sites you should look into the two graves in the middle of the Savannah airport runway.

Also I went to the park last Friday and the workers were saying they were doing a wheel change on the trains is why they were on single train ops.

Any update on Volcano reopening? I plan on going in August and hope that it’s open by then.

Hi TPR,

As a stop on my summer trip, I'll be visiting Kings Dominion on Tuesday, July 17th. How should crowds be? Is there a good itinerary for how to get each credit, and are there any notable non-coaster rides that I should check out?

Thanks!

I think I'd hit Twisted Timbers first. Normally, I'd recommend Volcano, due to its capacity, but I think it's currently down for the count. You shouldn't have any big problems on a weekday. The park has a shooting dark ride, too (Boo Blasters) and a decent log ride.

^^ I agree with Chuck, Boo Blasters is a lot of fun (it's kind of hidden near Snoopyville) and also air conditioned. The Shenandoah log flume is really nice and won't get you soaked. Rebel Yell (Racer 75) is running fantastically well this year so don't skip it and if you are looking for another AC break the show by the Cirque Dreams Origins show by the antique cars/Grizzly is pretty good. The Eiffel Tower has great views. Make sure to stay super hydrated, the park is really hot and especially in areas where it's pavement and just reflects the heat back up at you.
