My hype for KD is now through the roof but my visit is months out. Can't wait to re-read in the summer as this was the perfect way to get familiar with the park's rides, food/beer offerings, and where to sit. Another great trip report! Thanks!

Great report. Twisted Timbers is an airtime machine coaster and a perfect fit for Kings Dominion. I am glad that I live an hour away from KD.

P.S. I would've met you guys if I did choose to go on that day.

Nice report!

It's such a foreign concept to me to go to an amusement park and need gloves. Too funny.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great report so far, Boldi!

I also find it strange that I305 always has such a short line, but I love it! The past couple of times that we have visited, Michael will ride it but once and then I will ride it like 4-5 more times in a row...circling around like a giddy teenager to ride again and again. :lol:

TT looks absolutely awesome too...so glad that you were able to meet up with other TPR folks as your combo of photos were all very good!

Looking forward to BGW!

I have only seen I305 with a lengthy line on Saturdays in October.
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

LOL it actually wasn't too cold, it got up into the upper 40s that day, and in the sun we were fine. Then again we're used to dealing with temps in the 20s/30s during HITP @ GreatAdv. It is still strange riding in the cold but I prefer it over the heat and humidity of summer up here. I had gloves in my pockets all day and only used them during my night rides (hence why you cant see my hands in the I305 onride)

I feel like I just hit the tip of the iceberg since we only stopped for food/drinks twice in the park. We checked a couple other places in the other report I linked to at the beginning of this one so check that too. That Outer Hanks place is alright for its location though. Get excited, its such a great park! We're trying to visit later this year again and I can't wait.

To the point of wearing the gloves and hat, it's something we're used to up here going to CP during early and late season.

What tripped us out was having to wear that winter gear at Disney World a few years ago and then at BGT this past December! :lol:

I always have fun reading your and Coasterbill's reports. Kings Dominion has been on my bucket list since Volcano The Blast Coaster and the long defunct Hypersonic XLC, and again later with Intimidator 305, and now reassured again with Twisted Timbers. These all look awesome and now I have another reason to visit this place. I also really want to visit Busch Gardens to so I'll eventually have too do a SE/Virginia/DC trip (probably not until 2021 though). Looking forward to the Busch Gardens segment.
