You should definitely do Volcano as soon as the park opens to avoid long lines and the chance of it breaking down. After that, be sure to hit up Flight of Fear, ever since 305 was built it has become much more popular causing long lines throughout parts of the day and once you get off that head over to 305. From there, you shouldn't have to worry about lines too much as most the coasters lines shouldn't be bad at all. I might would also recommend riding Shockwave fairly early to avoid a long wait due to the fact it is a standup and the GP takes forever to get strapped in on that ride. Like braztaz said, hit up Dominator in the afternoon when it has no line...

Thanks for the advice, this is exactly the type of information I was looking for. Here's hoping this weekend will go as planned, I will survive the insane heat, and come back home with 12 new credits from Kings Dominion and 5 from Busch Gardens =)

^Nice.

Any ideas on what we may be getting in 2012? My guess is it'll be a small addition since they usually announce the major invcestments right around late july/early august.

^I'm thinking a Huss Giant Frisbee, since Carowinds is getting one next year. (At least, should be)

While it looks like it might be a possibility for Carowinds based on the marker with "Huss GF" written on it (even though that even seems suspicious), I am reluctant to think that Cedar Fair would pull a "Windseeker" and put these in some of their parks next year.

Don't get me wrong, the Huss giant frisbees are my all time #1 flat, but their reputation for having a lot of major down time leads me to wonder if CF would be willing to invest the money to add them to a bunch of their parks.

But then again, I guess Huss frisbees would be more reliable than their topple towers. :|

So that's why the carowinds thread has come out of hibernation? I hope we get a regular frisbee & not a giant as I HATE their restraints which is why I won't ride Crypt anymore...of course a windseeker on the spot where hypersonic was would be good too & would creat a tower triangle of sorts with DT to the east,WS to the west & ET to the center north.

Plus adding WIndseeker would tie KD the 'record of most attractions over 300 ft in one park' (I305, ET, DT, WS) with CP. (MF, TTD, SS, WS)

Wouldn't Power Tower technically count, since the structure itself is 300ft?
