Well, My family decided to go to Kings Dominion for a half a day. First, Prolouge! Prolouge
We got to that park around 10:27 a.m. and I waited a little for the gates to open to the rides in the back. One they opened, everyone stormed to the HyperSonic XLC, just where I was going.
HyperSonic XLC didn't open right away, it took alittle bit of testing. Once opened, everyone stormed into line, and shuffled it.
1. HyperSonic XLC (1 Time)
This is the best ride in the world! I rode with a little kid who was also by himself. We rode in the front seat, with great air time! After the ride, my Mom wanted to buy an On-Ride Photo, which the just installed after the turn.
*New Add-Ons: On-Ride Photo
2. Flight of Fear (1 Time, First Time!)
This was my first time riding this coaster, so I was a bit nervous. I rode with the same kid that I did on the HyperSonic. While waiting, I talked to two ACE Members infront of us, which was a great pleasure to talk to.
Once in Seat Line, I got nervous since I saw the Launch. Then it was our turn.
In front of us was the Two ACE Members. The Ride was going to start, then they did a Re-Check, I was still very nervous. I was holding on ever since my LapBar was on me.
To relieve some stress, I let out a Girly/Sissy Scream, which made people laugh, so I liked that. Scream like Girl = Relieve Scared Emotions!
Just before the blast, on harder I held. I held on, then WHOOOSSSH! After the Cobra Roll, I threw my hands up, enjoying the whole ride. It was great! I couldn't believe I was even scared.
The new Lapbars are great, feel snug plus your feet are restrainted also.
*New Add-Ons: LapBars
We were going to eat, so before that, I decided to look at the wait for Volcano, it was highly crowded. I noticed something new! A Fast-Pass like thing. Goto the Entrance and get one that tells you when to come back. I'm not sure if you have to pay though.
*New Add-On: Volcano FastPass!
My Mom and I then ate yummy food! BURP 3. Rebel Yell Backwards
I always ride this ride, its great. Tons of Airtime, Bumps, and Fun! Not much to say, just great ride.

Not much to say, AirTime, Whips you around, all around great ride!
All in All, it was a great day, 5 Coaster, HyperSonic XLC being Favorite of Course! Gotta Ride That! I might be going tomorrow to Season Pass Holders Day! I'll be wearing HyperSonic Shirt and Blue or Green Shorts! Maybe See You There!

Good trip report :) I was surprised that you were more scared to go on OL:FOF than Hypersonic though. Hypersonic looks pretty intense but I can't wait to finally ride it at the end of this month ;)

RCTFan, if you go tommorrow, keep your eyes peeled for a Tiger Woods look alike in a Raging Bull t-shirt and orange "ILLINOIS" shorts (or blue jeans if its too cold) That will be me (OH and I'll have my blue "NOKIA" hat too.
