    Launch Too short Disappointing! Dead spots

    Coming in, I was told that Volcano was the 2nd best coaster at Kings Dominion — only to the legendary Intimidator 305. Unfortunately, this was not the case, but regardless Volcano made for a thrilling and unique ride. The volcano itself was an excellent piece of scenery that was a major eye-catcher from anywhere else in the Safari Village, and made the coaster just that more daunting from afar. The first launch gave some kick to it, and the turn immediately succeeding was not very forceful. The zippy second launch into the 155-foot sidewinder packed a punch — it’s a real “WOW” moment that was for sure the highlight of this coaster. However, Volcano just peters out after this point; the turn-into-heartline-roll sequence is quite repetitive, and taken at a speed just too slow for any whip yet just too fast to give any decent hangtime. The 80-foot dive finale caught me off guard somewhat, but that was shortlived as the train slammed into the final brake run. All in all, Volcano was a fun coaster with a great setting and one moment of awesomeness; yet, because it wasn’t nearly as intense as I’d been told, I was let down. I certainly miss it, but not as much as several other coasterfans do.
