On August 30th, 2012, we went back to Kings Dominion for a second day in a row. We were at the park for most of the day, and it was fantastic. Kings Dominion was empty, and some of the best Coasters, including Volcano, Intimidator 305, Dominator, and Flight of Fear, had no wait times!
We arrived at the park right when it opened, at 10am. Again, the first thing we did was go straight to ride one of K.D.'s best Coasters, Intimidator 305. At that time, it had a walk on wait. It was very surprising to see a fantastic Giga Coaster with a walk on wait! We rode it once in the front row, and then decided to headed over to ride the epic ''Sci-Fi'' themed Flight of Fear. Then we headed to ride Volcano, the Blast Coaster. It also had no wait, so we rode the Coaster with the current tallest Inversion, at 150 feet, a few times. We then took a quick spin on the Avalanche, a bobsled Coaster next to Volcano. Avalanche was a great and unique bobsled Coaster. It is among one of the last Bobsled Coasters left, and it is one of our favorite.
It was already about 2 pm, and we ate at the Trails End Grill, which was in the Congo section of the park, near Volcano. It was your average Amusement Park food, a little over priced, and just okay. However, it was a nicely themed restaurant, and nice and cool in the A/C. Next time you visit Kings Dominion, I suggest eating at the Trails End Grill, because it has a good theme, inside with A/C, and near the best Coasters in the park.
After eating, we did not take any breaks from Coaster riding, and headed to ride the Backlot Stunt Coaster, a small launched Coaster. Then we headed to ride the old Arrow looping Coaster, Anaconda. After getting our heads banged around, our headache got worse after riding the TOGO stand-up Coaster, Shockwave. Two head banging Coasters back to back, plus intense heat gave us a big headache.
We were then in 'The Grove' section of the park, where we rode Rebel Yell, a fantastic Wooden Coaster. Then we headed to ride the insanely tall 305 foot Drop Tower, called Drop Tower, and another ride on Windseeker. They all had no wait times, and we did it a few times in a row.
By then it was about 4 pm, and we decided to head to our cars to take a quick break in the A/C. After that, we only had a few more hours left in the park, and we headed back to the Congo section of the park. There we went back to Intimidator 305, which it had no wait. We managed to ride the intense Giga Coaster over 5 times in a row before we were too grey-ed out to ride it anymore. We then rode Volcano and Flight of Fear a few more times also.
It was then almost time for us to leave the park. Before we left, we went to ride Dominator. There was no one in the station to ride the world's longest floorless coaster, so we rode it a few times. We then were extremely over-heated and exhausted, so we decided to leave the park and go to Go-Karts Plus. But, returned to Kings Dominion for a third day in a row, the following day!
