I would love for Kings Dominion to create a highly themed flume ride more along the lines, and using elements of both the former water rides: The Haunted River and Diamond Falls.

Here's how I would create it: There is a mountain structure that can be differently themed than Volcano and you start on the ride by traveling in a straight line up the first small hill, then the ride turns to the right and goes up a lift hill inside the mountain structure, then it's a four minute journey of strange animatronic creatures, a creepy headless head appearing (via projections) warning you about "The King of Monsters" and to "Beware the river and it's falls". When you go up a smaller hill (the last one), the "King" reveals himself (the dragon creature from the original Diamond Falls, with a revised design) and telling you to "leave his treasure alone" and breathes a small amount of fire (which makes the ceiling burst into flames ala Escape from Pompeii) and you descend the hill and a large splashdown awaits. Then once you make a small journey straight and turn to the left to the station, the ride ends.

What do you think about this idea?

The miracle of modern day projections, and Garner Holt to create the animatronic monsters.
