the short section going up the center looks so sad too. . but yeah, the little piece you pointed out looks like it's just a bug hanging on for dear life.

so sad :(.. . .but hopefully something really cool will eventually come in to take it's place in KD line up.

This hurts my heart! :cry: I feel like I am one of the few who actually really enjoyed Volcano.

I don't think that's the case at all! There's a LOT of love for it here. I loved that ride (and I don't love or even tolerate a lot of rides)!

Read back through the thread where its demolition is announced and you'll see a lot of us were quite bummed.

^Was thinking the same thing. I've seldom heard any bad things about the ride itself. Just reliability, capacity were the main downsides...

Yeah, Volcano was my jam. Bill and I were crying into our beers about it down at the park a few weeks ago. It wasn't balls-to-the-wall intense, but it was unique and just wonky in the best way. Good launches, the barrel rolls up top were just fun and I actually really liked the drop into the brakes, as I like rides that end with a bang as opposed to a whimper. There was nothing bad about it, as long as you had FL+ to bypass the always-awful wait.

^ Yeah that line was awful. It's the only reason I needed to buy FastLane Plus on a few visits. But from a ride perspective, it was great. There wasn't really anything else quite like it.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Is that how it went down? If I shed any tears at the beer place they were tears of joy when I saw the size of the beer flights. That’s not a flight, that’s just four beers in a line.
