  • It is a very unique ride and I enjoyed it a lot but it would have been better if we could have gotten a drink while we waited in line
  • The next year when we came back they had corrected that problem by installing a water fountain and having venders that would come to the line to sell drinks

      Kings Dominion Park is an amusement park located tweenty miles north of Richmond, Virginia off Highway 95. When me and my husband went the first time we dropped off our kids at his sisters for the weekend and drove the six hours to the park. We stayed at the campground that was owned by Kings Dominion.

      We did not have a tent so we got a lot of unusual looks when we threw our sleeping bags out on


      the ground and slept under the stars that night. The next morning we caught the shuttle bus to the amusement park.

      It was the openening weekend for their new roller coaster called The Volacano. The line was four hours long, it was 95 degrees outside with no shade and no water fountains.

      You could not get out of line to buy a drink because you would loose your place in line. So we waited.

      I was begining to ...


      • get a bit weak and dizey by the time we finally got on the ride. The ride was shaped like a volcano.

        It had linear induction motors that launched you from a stand still to sixty miles an hour and shot you up and out of the top of the volcano like lava gushing out. It is a very unique ride and I enjoyed it a lot but it would have been better if we could have gotten

        a drink while we waited in line.

        We spent the rest of the day strolling through the park riding various rides. Then before leaving we stopped by the customer service desk to launch our complaint about the water situation.

        The next year when we came back they had corrected that problem by installing a water fountain and having venders that would come to the line to sell drinks. Sometimes it pays to tell them how you really feel.
