On August 20, 2015, Kings Dominion announced that Shockwave would be replaced by Delirium, a Mondial frisbee ride in 2016. The ride was demolished for scrap metal in November. Shockwave was the last of three TOGO stand-up roller coasters built in the United States to close.
The ride had a single vertical loop followed by a rise into a downward helix. Two airtime hills separated by a 180 degree turn followed. The ride was very similar to King Cobra which opened at Kings Island two years prior to Shockwave.
2 trains with 6 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.
