You may remember back at the start of the years, Kings Dominion made the tough decision to remove Volcano: The Blast Coaster. Ever since it was fully demolished, speculation has risen over what might replace it. Well today, plans have been leaked showing what could be a potential B&M Wing Coaster as the parks next big coaster:

Will see if this turns out to be true, but it certainly would be a solid addition to the parks lineup.

This park could definitely benefit from another solid looping coaster. Looking forward to see if this pans out.

Wing coasters are probably my least favorite coaster type from B&M, and possibly in general. Their wide trains make them prone to really bad vibrations, Gatekeeper is a skip for me these days due to it being like riding a slowly rotating jackhammer. It's really sad given how otherwise graceful these coasters are.

KD isn't a flagship park, but the smallest Wing Coaster in the US which is an existing design (Hot Go) with elements removed is just trash. Let's hope something different comes to fruition.

Some fan sites are saying that The Crypt is also coming down (the HUSS Topspin directly next to Volcano), possibly to make way for the 2021 project. Sad if true, that topspin kicked so much ass and it was pretty reliable from when I visited the park two years back. :(

So that Wing Coaster that was suppose to be replacing Volcano has been shelved:

It's been a while since we said anything about #KDProject2021. What are we hearing? All the recent rumors have claimed that the B&M Wing coaster proposal we leaked previously has since been shelved. Guess our understanding of @KingsDominionVA's 2021 project is back at square one.


Hopefully Kings Dominion can come up with a replacement for Volcano soon.

So even if the park is closed right now, King's Dominion seems to be going ahead with their 2021 project as track for their new freespin has recently shown up:
