great ride for the family... i love it - bryan shepard
Not the best ride at kings dominion but a half decent bobsled. Much better than La Vibora at Six Flags over Texas. 8/10 - Edward Morgan
No airtime and rough. Better than La Vibora but worse than Disaster Transport. 4/10 - Will Gibson
A great bobslead coaster, a lot better than I thoght it would be. not one I would wait in line for verry long. - Justin Curtis
It was very fun! Reminded me of the early days of Six Flags Great America when it first opened and they had a similar ride. - Mary Ann Nowak
Avalanche feels like a combination coaster/water slide, without the water. Either way, it is a pleasant and fun diversion for the entire family. - James Rao
Avalanche used to be one of my favorites at KD, now it's just painful and frightening. - Chase Gray
Living near Cedar Point, my expectations of a bobsled coaster are drawn from my rides on Disaster Transport. So, naturally, I didn't expect much from Avalanche. This ride blew those expectations away. This ride was fun & unique, with some nice little pops of air. Definitely one of my favorites in the park. - Erin B
