Per the discussions on Volcano status, just thought you would all like to know that they have completely removed all mention of it from the Coaster Con schedule. Con will be at KD on the 19th and 20th. So they are obviously not optimistic it will be open by then.

So then it appears I'll be at KD the same day as coaster con. I had no idea. I don't know how to feel about this. :lol:

Does anyone know how many people ACE events usually attract? Was going to wait and see about Fastlane once I got there. Now I'm wondering if it may make sense to buy ahead.

There are going to be about 500 participants. Get the fastlane plus, which if you only have one day I would advise even if there wasn't an event. Most participants probably will not get FL due to ert on almost every coaster before or after park opening.

^ To my knowledge, Cedar Fair parks don't sell out of FastLanes like a Dollywood does with their TimeSavers. Can anyone confirm? I usually just buy day of at Cedar Fair parks if I find it necessary.

They have sold out at cedarpoint a few times, but not often. In my opinion, the cap is too high on how many they sell.

Not being a fan of the system to begin with, I definitely agree with this! Lower the price, and lower the cap, that's what I would do...

Is there a place on the Kings Dominion website where we can find out when rides are going to be down or refurbished? Or will we just find out when we get to the park?

Just got an email from Kings Dominion stating that they do not expect to open Volcano anytime soon.....seems there are some major headaches with the ride....well, it's an Intamin.

I'm heading out to KD late July/early August. I know there is plenty to do here, but Volcano is a coaster I've been particularly excited for. Hope they figure it out.

I told them that we are going in late August and they still were not sure about Volcano......
