The more refined of the park's two big wooden coasters (the other being Hurler), this beast has a classic layout with a few proven, time-tested elements. Its forest-bound layout adds to the surprise and mystery, though until recently it had no qualms about shaking riders to the bone.

The Grizzly closed Labor Day weekend 2022 for much needed extensive retracking and renovations and reopened on May 13 2023.The Grizzly is now longer at 3162ft, steeper at 55 degrees and reaches 51mph on the first drop. Kings Dominion has announced that "Grizzly received 1,040 feet of industry veteran Gravity Group’s engineered precut track, making the ride smoother and overall a more enjoyable experience while maintaining the classic look and feel of a true wooden roller coaster."
