At One Point, These Two Theme/Amusement Parks Weren't So Different
Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, New Jersey, and Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, are two amusement/theme parks in the Mid-Atlantic that garner much deserved attention from coaster enthusiasts, each with its own different reasons. When you mention Kings Dominion, people instantly think of the ultra-intense, high g-pulling, gray/blackout-inducing Intimidator 305, or perhaps the RMC (Rocky Mountain Construction) conversion of former wooden coaster Hurler, that is now Twisted Timbers. Now, bring up Six Flags Great Adventure, and people think of the Intamin pre-fabricated wooden coaster featuring tons of airtime and hairpin turns that is El Toro, or perhaps the tallest (and second fastest) roller coaster in the world, Kingda Ka.
Through the Eyes of a Virginia Coaster Enthusiast: Dollywood Review
Dollywood is an amusement park located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in the Smokey Mountain regions of the United States. This park has been on my bucket list since 2013, one of the earliest of my coaster enthusiast years, and almost a decade later, I finally was able to make a trip to this park. I can already say after first impressions, this is perhaps the second most beautiful theme/amusement park I've had the privilege to visit, only behind Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia.
