Volcano: The Blast Coaster reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Volcano: The Blast Coaster, a roller coaster at Kings Dominion. (The minimum height to ride is 54 inches.)
Written by James Rao
Volcano is an inverted LIM-launched coaster built around a man-made Volcano that occasionally erupts with fire, smoke, and sound effects.
At the start of the ride the train slowly creeps around a corner then launches from 0 to 70 mph in 3 seconds. The train goes full speed around a long flat section of track behind the mountain. As the train approaches the mountain from the rear, another series of magnets blasts the train straight up and out the top of the Volcano. From there, the train circles the Volcano once, makes a right dive back into the mountain and into the brake run. There are three heart line twists while you circle the Volcano.
Amazing ride and very different ! Can't wait for the update their doing 10/10 - Owen Scott
Best ride in the park! Amazing launch, Roll Out, Turns, and headline rolls. Volcano is a must with it's smoothness and incredible height. Short definitely but Best theming in the park (flight of fear is losing it's theming to halloween crud). 9/10 - Edward Morgan
Great ride! Awesome launch and I loved the roll out of the volcano. The heartline rolls were really thrilling too. I wish I would have got mote than 1 ride. 9/10 - Will Gibson
A fun ride... but this always seems to have the longest lines at KD. The launch is great, and it's really cool to shoot out of the top of the volcano. Nice loops and elements. I wanted it to last longer, though. - Roger S
The LIM Launch out of the tunnel is awesome! - Jaret Reveille
