Eleven thrilling roller coasters, a water park and lots of kids rides make this park a favorite summer destination for families. Roller coasters range from the stand-up and hanging variety to one that shoots you out of a volcano. The Rebel Yell, a wooden coaster, offers the option of riding a car that travels backwards. For those who are not quite as fearless, there are several family rides that are equally as fun—a ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower, a log flume and an old-fashioned carousel. Ongoing entertainment, games and snack bars keep everyone happy throughout the day. The park is 30 minutes north of Richmond off I-95, Exit 98.
Hanover was the center of the "Great Awakening" of the American Revolution led by resident Reverend Samuel Davies. Patrick Henry was born here, studied law here and lived here at the time of his famous liberty speech. His residence, Scotchtown, is open to the public. Hanover was also the birthplace of Henry Clay, another important figure during the Revolution. During the Civil War, the bloody Seven Days Battles took place here. The battlefields are now National Parks. Take 64 east to Route 360 (Mechanicsville Turnpike) to reach Hanover. It is about a 20-minute drive from Richmond.
