We have an update on the ride loading procedures for Twisted Timbers:
For those of you who have had the chance to experience the coaster’s twists and turns, you know this ride is dynamic, thrilling and personally one of my favorites (anyone else love those three airtime hills as much as I?).
While those twist, turns and fabulous hills are some of the best parts of this coaster, they may have meant the loss of personal belongings for you or a friend if an item came loose during the ride. The coaster’s unique forces and elements may cause personal items to become loose even when placed snugly in a pocket.
For this reason, we will be reinforcing our loose article policy with the addition of metal detectors at the ride’s station to identify items (such as cell phones and keys) that must be stored separately prior to riding. This will ensure the safety of other riders, and it enables you to return home with the items you brought to the park.
A few key things:
- You will be allowed to carry your phone, keys and other small items with you through the queue line. Bags, hats, etc. will need to be stored in a nearby locker or with a non-rider.
- Once you arrive at the station, please have your cell phone and keys in hand. All riders MUST go through the metal detectors.
- Once you’re ready to board the train, place cell phones and keys in the zippered pouch below the seat. All other loose articles must be secured in a cargo pocket, left with a non-rider, or placed in a locker. All glasses must be secured with an athletic strap.
- Then, it’s RIDE TIME.
At Kings Dominion, safety is our top priority and we have rules in place so our guests have a safe and enjoyable experience here. Please keep in mind that Virginia has a rider responsibility law which states that guests are required to follow all rider rules; they’re posted at ride entrances and available online. Be safe – and enjoy the ride!
