Apparently the park sent out an email saying that Kings Dominion will open on March 22nd! Oh, did I say March? I meant May. Alpengeist, InvadR and Verbolten are open tomorrow. This comp

Too bad Volcano isn't still around. It was ahead of its time not only technologically, but it already had limited capacity down to a science.

Kings Dominion is a very good park with some great rides but KD and BGW are headed in very opposite directions right now. Those things can both be true.

A platinum pass is a platinum pass, it doesn’t matter where you got it. You get all of the perks everywhere. This includes early entry.

 

Thanks CB. Unfortunately we won't be down on a weekend, so will miss early entry times. However I am going to assume that being there on a weekday when the schools are still in, will make it not as busy (and I always budget for Fastlane anyway), so the extra hour won't be needed quite as much. We hope to use it at CW for when "Yukon Striker" has early entry!

 

I am very pleased with the Platinum pass though, the savings add up when you use it as intended. With Cedar Point, Kings Island and Kings Dominion all within easy enough reach of us here in Toronto....there is plenty of scope to use it!

This sign popped up near the sight of volcano! Any thoughts?

 

 

My thoughts: They posted this sign up knowing it will draw attention and create talk about the park on social media networks.

 

My thoughts 2.0: They are stating that some type of journey or expedition is on the way.

This whole thing was unplanned and likely not budgeted for. The teasers fit the Safari Village theme but I wouldn't be shocked if the park hasn't even fully conceptualized the replacement attraction that they're teasing.

From this angle it sort of looks like a fully completed Universal's Volcano Bay.

Depressing. But also super cool to see that GIANT sidewinder uncovered by the volcano structure.

That tiny piece of track on the left looks so lonely.

the short section going up the center looks so sad too. . but yeah, the little piece you pointed out looks like it's just a bug hanging on for dear life.

 

so sad .. . .but hopefully something really cool will eventually come in to take it's place in KD line up.

This hurts my heart! I feel like I am one of the few who actually really enjoyed Volcano.

 

I think they should have Intamin come out and do "Son of Volcano"!

 

Now that's an idea I could get behind!!

I don't think that's the case at all! There's a LOT of love for it here. I loved that ride (and I don't love or even tolerate a lot of rides)!

 

Read back through the thread where its demolition is announced and you'll see a lot of us were quite bummed.

Yeah, Volcano was my jam. Bill and I were crying into our beers about it down at the park a few weeks ago. It wasn't balls-to-the-wall intense, but it was unique and just wonky in the best way. Good launches, the barrel rolls up top were just fun and I actually really liked the drop into the brakes, as I like rides that end with a bang as opposed to a whimper. There was nothing bad about it, as long as you had FL+ to bypass the always-awful wait.

Is that how it went down? If I shed any tears at the beer place they were tears of joy when I saw the size of the beer flights. That’s not a flight, that’s just four beers in a line.

Question regarding visiting KD when the school term is still ongoing.

 

My experience at Canada's Wonderland is that the park tends to be less busy on these days....and therefore Fastlane/Fastlane Plus becomes more of a "wait and see" type affair.

 

Would it be fair to say that this is the case at Kings Dominion? We are heading to the park on Monday June 3rd.....I normally always get Fastlane in advance for our travels, but this is the first trip for us in a while where we are travelling when it is still term time (outside of Disney/Universal) Given that I don't know the park or the area that well...seems best to ask here.

Not a KD regular but last season I visited on a Monday in August before the new school term started and FL was not needed. I would take a wait and see approach.
