Last week I took a vacation day so we could visit Kings Dominion amusement park.
I woke up and ran 3.5 miles in my usual gray morning haze
By the time we got to the park, the haze burned off and it was a pretty day.
The Eiffel Tower replica will offer some great views on a clear day
315 ft. up
The highlight of my the day was this
That is not us, because we had no one to video for us, but we had just took our dive, and I wanted to have something to share.
Getting tugged upward is a little scary! You are looking down at everything getting smaller and smaller, but the coolest thing is you get to do it together. Arm and arm :)
Kenny pulled the cord and we started falling...it was like nothing I have ever experienced. Awesome :) I turned on my Garmin to try to capture it, the heart rate spike cracks me up.
This is the harness you wear to fly
Hands down, one of the best thrills ever!
THIS ride :) was so fast - The Intimidator is well named
Dropping! I love it all
We are so nerdy, we wait for the front row! We got lucky, the park wasn't crowded so the waits were nothing :) In our experience the front seat view of your drop, makes it all the more awesome.
Snoopy...who doesn't love Snoopy!
Freaky Fast ;)
Back in the day, Andrew and I use to visit this park all the time and hang out on the water rides and spend time in the kids area. It has been about 12 years since I visited the park and boy has it changed!
No more Smurfs and Yogi Bear, but fun stuff has replaced it, and there is a ton to do for younger children.
Bush Gardens is still my favorite park, but this place is totally worth a visit if you are in the Richmond area.
The Intimidator is a great thrill coaster if you like that kind of thing. You can feel some serious G's :)
Have you ever visited Kings Dominion?
Do you have a favorite coaster?!
Ours is still the the Griffon (so far) - but we like to experience speed, drops, flips, and turns of all kinds!
