    Inversions Launch Smoothness Reliability

    Seemed like you always got caught in a wait because it was shut down for one reason or another. I know maintenance was hell on this thing but that aside, it was one of the smoothest coasters I've ever ridden. My wife gets severe motion sickness yet she could ride this thing. RiP Volcano.

    The launches were awesome. After that, the ride was fun with the cobra rolls, but they weren't as intense as I thought they'd be.

    Theming Launch Smoothness Dead spots

    The launch and first inversion are the best part, and they are truly incredible! The rest meanders and slowly peters out. If it had a 2nd half it would be truly great, but the first half is still legendary.

    Location Launch Fun Too short

    Unfortunately, I only got one ride on this. I became an enthusiast in early 2018, during the last couple of weeks before volcano's closing. However it was probably in the best conditions possible. It was a station wait, front row, in light rain. I remember it being an awsome ride. Forceful first launch, fun first turn, crazy launch out of the volcano, and a fun second half filled with fun heartline rolls. You will be missed.

    Launch Intensity Layout Capacity Discomfort

    I still remember the marketing campaign for "The Blast Coaster"- on TV and Pepsi cans all over the Mid-Atlantic. It would take several years before my first trip to KD to experience it, and now that it's gone I'm glad I was able to get several rides in over a couple different visits. First things first: the launch was awesome. As my first launched inverted coasted (and to this day, one of only two I've ridden), I was blown away by the straight-up "eruption" up and out of the top of ol' Smurf Mountain. I will admit, the layout was a bit aimless after reaching the high point, but a few well-placed heartline rolls were sufficient while enjoying the views of the park and the very expansive parking lot. Being a 2-by launched train, capacity wasn't great but luckily I rode Volcano late enough in its life to avoid any lengthy lines. RIP

    Theming Inversions Launch Too short Layout

    Volcano is a ride that really added to the uniqueness of King Dominion, and it's a shame it never got to coexist with Twisted Timbers. The launches were great, the theming was outstanding, and the ride was exciting. The barrel rolls are fun and the volcano is awesome. The layout is repetitive and too short, but that adds to how unique and quirky this ride was.

    Theming Inversions Launch Too short Reliability

    Volcano was a great coaster. The launches were amazing, particularly the second launch. The inversions were all extremely fun.Volcano wasn't a statistical beast or anything. It was just pure fun. The inversions were slow enough that the slowness was fun. The launches were powerful. It was a very well-done ride.
