The Crypt reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for The Crypt, a flat ride at Kings Dominion. (The minimum height to ride is 54 inches.)
Written by Penelope Newman
A temple themed Huss Top Spin ride that flips riders head over heels. It was formerly known as Tomb Raider:Firefall based on the Tomb Raider movies. After Kings Dominion was sold to Cedar Fair, the copyrights and trademarks for Tomb Raider vanished. But this ride and Firefall at California's Great America remained relatively the same.
It hurts but fun 8/10 - Owen Scott
This is my second-favorite ride at KD (after I-305). Unlike others, I experienced no pain on this, and I'm 50. I laugh uncontrollably through the flips - I just love the flipping sensation! I like riding on the water side better than the flame side. (Caution - it can induce a bit of nausea if you ride it too soon after eating!) - Roger S
I agree with the guys who complained about how painfull it is, but this ride is really not as bad as it looks. - Justin Curtis
Gotta love good 'ol Crypt. It's quite painful in the front, but the back is great! Unfortunately, it's been the same program ever since it opened five years ago, plus you don't get wet (that would be awesome!). - Chase Gray
