On July 2, 2012, coaster enthusiasts celebrated America’s independence by doing what other than visiting their favorite amusement park! Attendees flocked to Kings Dominion for a day full of fun and excitement!
The day started out with a few of the guests enjoying the 60+ rides and attractions that Kings Dominion has to offer. Once the 1:30 meeting time came around, everyone gathered under the Eiffel Tower for check-in. Then it was time for the real fun to start!
Excited enthusiasts set off to take over some of Kings Dominion’s most popular rides including: Volcano, Intimidator 305, Drop Tower, WindSeeker, and even the Ghoster Coaster. That’s right! We filled a full train of Ghoster Coaster with ecstatic coaster enthusiasts!
After some ride take overs, it was time for lunch! At lunch we enjoyed delicious fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, and so much more mouth watering food at The Country Kitchen.
The left over tokens were distributed throughout the group, who dispersed throughout the arcade for more fun! Some played Dance Dance Revolution, some played Deal or No Deal, and some even battled it out in a very close game of air hockey. Clint ended up beating Jason by one point and scored himself a free Rita’s Italian Ice!
As the sun was setting we spent our time watching the shows, getting dinner and getting our night rides in. Then it was time to once again gathered under the Eiffel Tower for the most anticipated time of the day!
We all crammed into the tight elevator to get up to our exclusive Eiffel Tower deck to view Kings Dominion’s dazzling fireworks display!
The fireworks were fantastic and the view was incredible!
Just before our ERT on WindSeeker, we got a special treat! Everyone got some free Rita’s Italian Ice!
During ERT, everyone got to play with the special remote that controls WindSeeker’s amazing LED light package!
We want to thank everyone who came out to this event! We really had a blast (yes, that was a fireworks pun), and we hope all of you did also!
