August 3, 2010
We started talking about what to do to top the insane fun of the Negative-G
2009 Road Trip which included Coney
Six Flags Great Adventure,
Six Flags New England,
and The Great
Escape as soon as we got home from that trip. Soon afterwards
Intimidator 305 and Intimidator were announced for Kings Dominion and Carowinds
and those two parks became the foundation for this years trip. After
much planning, changes to the plan after Freestyle Music Park closed, and
several changes to the roster of who was coming we finally hit the road
from our various homes and ended up in Virginia at Kings Dominion to kick
off the Negative-G 2010 Road Trip.
As soon as we got out of our van Corey started to mourn his lost Geauga
Lake Park as Batman Knight Flight from that park had been transplanted at
Kings Dominion and rechristened Dominator.
Of course we made it to Kings Dominion well before the park opened.
Here's Josh (aka: Munjo) waiting patiently to get into the park and take
Intimidator 305; or "Timi" as we nicknamed it, for a ride.
Being a huge park map fan (if you have any he'll gladly take them off your
hands to plaster over his walls with) Bond found one as soon as we got there
and started planning our route for the day.
Being Cedar Fair pass holders Kings Dominion offered early entry like the
rest of the parks in the chain. So we were past the gated and headed
straight back to Timi to get a few rides in before before the crowds descended
