Dominator roller coaster

Kings Dominion has reopened its Dominator roller coaster, just three days after a guest was unresponsive when a train returned to the station.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Dominator returned to action on Monday. Inspections have found no issues with the safety systems on the coaster, suggesting that an unrelated medical condition may have led to the incident.

The rider was treated on the scene before being transfered to the local Memorial Regional Medical Center. Some media outlets have reported the incident as a death, but this has not been confirmed by Kings Dominion.

Dominator was relocated to Kings Dominion from the shuttered Geauga Lake park in 2008. The floorless coaster sends riders through a fast-paced course that includes five inversions, including a vertical loop that stands at 135-feet-tall.
