Good ride but not worth the constant 2-3 hour waits.

What a Russssshhhhh...then another...
Forget about anything but the fornt seat on this puppy. Find out why primitive societies sacrificed virgins to volcanoes. Usually I find steelies passe. But there is something about being spew out of the top of a volcano upside down that can convert a true woodie believer.
Kings dominion is a great park as well, with somehting for everyone and a couple of truly unique rides, like the hypersonic, and the grizzly make KD worth a trip from anywhere.
Anyway ride this if you like adreneline

Almost liked Volcano more than XLC!! (no comparison can be made of course, both completely different rides) What I liked so much about it is the surprise launch and the 2nd burst of speed up out of the volcano. A unique ride and experience. Worth the ridiculous line.

nonstop from the launches to the brakes! the launch, the climb up the inside of the volcano... all great. but i think there should be more of a variety of inversions. it has a sidewinder loop and 3 zero-g rolls... needs more variety

Great Coaster. launch and breaking out of the mountain are great. to this day it holds several record: highest inversion, fastest inverted coaster, first LIM launch coaster.

Great Coaster. The launch and inversion out of the mountain are great. The feeling that you get in the barrel rolls is also a good point.

really cool feeling going up through the volcano in the front seat. is it a true 90 degree shot up the volcano?

Awesome launch, and the "feels-like-yourre-gonna-fall-out-of-your-seat-zero-g-rolls" are good too!

The acceleration blast through the dark tunnel is exhilarating. However, other than that, the ride was a little too short for me. Great coaster overall, though.

Great ride... as you slowly turn the corner you go straight for 2 seconds then BOOOOOM!!!! You are blasted off at 75 mph... this totally suprises you!!!at 75 mph you do a banked curve then you are racing towards the mountain.you get an extra boost then you are looping out of the volcano with neat special effects and sounds. You will have to ride this coaster to know the rest of it...
