Hurler was a wooden roller coaster located at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, USA. It was one of two identical roller coasters built by International Coasters, both named Hurler. The other Hurler still operates at Carowinds. The roller coaster was briefly closed at the start of the 2006 season to be re-tracked. It was closed again leading up to the 2010 season for installation of a trim brake immediately after the first hill. In early 2016, the ride was announced as being closed for the whole 2016 season. In October 2016, a gravestone was spotted at Kings Dominion's Halloween Haunt event with Hurler: 1994-2015 written on it, which hinted that the ride was closed permanently. The park later confirmed these rumours in a video ending with the words Rest In Peace... For Now. 2018. It was heavily rumoured that the attraction would receive an I-Box conversion by Rocky Mountain Construction in 2018. These rumours were semi-confirmed after an RMC truck was seen near Hurler in March 2017. On August 16, 2017, Kings Dominion officially announced that Hurler would be converted into an I-Box roller coaster named Twisted Timbers in 2018.
