I just got back from Kings Dominion a half hour ago. Today was a great day in some aspects. for two years I had to go through the agony of not being able to ride Volcano. But today when we pulled into the parking lot, I saw a plume of fire shooting out of Volcano. I was so excited about this that I cought a charlie horse in my calf. today it was raining all the way down to PKD, but when we got their it was no rain. It was season pass holder day so their were not many people. The first thing we did was go on Volcano, it was about a 15 minute wait. This ride was so exciting that my words cannot explain enough. Volcano was the only coaster at PKD that I have not been on. After that we were heading toward Grizzly, when the thunder storm came in, it was thundering for about two hours. I had to spend those two hours in the Grizzly arcade. when the rain stopped, I rode the crazy weaver, or whatever it's called in Wayns World. After that we headed on over to the Grizzly, because of time constraints, I only got up to Grizzly 3 (how many times rode in a row). Now, coming from a SFA employee, PKD's policy of riding several times in a row is better. My brother even got locked out when leaving one seat and going to the other, so they came and unlocked that section of the train to let him in. I then rode Volcano again with a 5 minute wait. then I headed over to OL:FoF, the only wait was for more people to get on because they need 10 before a launch. I rode Anaconda, then the Shockwave (I commend them on the paint job, un-like most people) I finished the day with riding Rebel Yell foward 3 times, the last two with the rain starting back up. I rode the last ride of the day on Rebel Yell as 6 o'clock came. The rain ment walk-ons on everything except Volcano. All-in-all, a great day at PKD.

Good report. I'm glad Volcano was open for you, I remember saying how much you hoped it was. Hope your calf is better! :)
