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 =)

Happiness is... Finding A Cure For Breast Cancer!

Kings Dominion, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Central Virginia affiliate of Susan G. Komen are teaming up to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

Now thru August 22, Kings Dominion guests can support the fight against breast cancer or honor someone that has been affected by the disease.

Happiness is... Winning A Car!

Purchase a little pink Snoopy online now or at the park. Snoopys are just $5 for one or $20 for five. All net proceeds from the Snoopy sales go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

All Snoopys will be tossed into the International Street Fountain at Kings Dominion. Buy a Snoopy online and we'll toss it in for you. Buy your Snoopy at the park and you can "Splash Your Snoopy" into the fountains yourself!

On August 22nd one lucky Snoopy will be selected randomly and the owner of that Snoopy will become the owner of a new Honda Civic compliments of Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg!

Happiness is... Getting a Great Deal!

Visit Kings Dominion during our Pink Days, July 25 - August 22, 2011, for JUST $38.99 by purchasing tickets online. Buy now and SAVE $20 off the regular price at the park. Plus $1.00 from every ticket sold will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Enjoy all Kings Dominion has to offer with more than 75 great rides and slides, two giant wave pools, Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular, daily through August 14th and support a wonderful cause. You will make an impact and you might win a new car.

^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)
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

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.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

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?
