Kings Dominion’s Shockwave to Close for Good on August 9
In a video posted to the park’s Social Media Channels, Kings Dominion has announced the impending closure of Shock Wave, a Togo Stand-Up Coaster that has been operating at the park since 1986.
The coaster has given over 22 million rides in its 29 years of operation, and was the last operating Togo Stand-up Coaster in North America.

Riders have until August 9 to “take the final stand” on Shock Wave.
According to Theme Park Review, the ride is being removed for future expansion.
