Kings Dominion Hits 301 Feet

© Kings Dominion

Standing proud at 301 feet above the Virginia landscape, WindSeeker at King Dominion has been topped out.  The park now officially has four rides that break the 300 foot mark - quite an achievement!  (that's WindSeeker, Eiffel Tower, Intimidator 305 and Drop Tower for those counting)

The ride carriage has yet to be assembled, but recent photos show those pieces being laid out in order to be assembled.  I'm sure parks everywhere in the East are enjoying this wildly-mild Winter with regard to their construction projects.

And for the record, Carowinds isn't very far behind on their WindSeeker.  They just posted that their tower's final piece was getting ready to go up.  More WindSeeking for everyone!
