A Retro Visit To Kings Dominion in 1989

 With Quick Draw McDraw, The Flintstones, The Smurfs, & More!


A look back at some VHS footage from a trip to Kings Dominion Amusement Part in Virginia from July of 1989! This footage was shot with a Panasonic video camcorder back before auto-stabilization and of course on VHS so bear with the quality. While doing some research on its sister theme park Kings Island in Ohio, I found this clip in my VHS archives. This was my only trip to Kings Dominion. I returned in the early 2000's and made it as far as the parking lot and gave up from a massive storm that brewed and was going to last all day. Hopefully I'll get to return soon, but I have to admit I'm still a bit sore with my old Hanna-Barbera friends being gone from Kings Dominion, Kings Island, and Carowinds!  













Seen on these clips are: - Hanna-Barbera's Quick Draw McGraw - The Old Dominion Line Train Ride - Fred Flintstone, Barny Rubble, and Dino - Smurf Mountain - The Rebel Yell roller coaster (now Racer 75) - Avalanche (Now Reptilian) - The old Shockwave roller coaster - The original "Singing Mushrooms'! - The Sea Lion Show
