Woodstock Express (formerly Scooby Doo, Scooby-Doo Ghoster Coaster, and Ghoster Coaster) is a wooden family roller coaster located at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, USA.

History

Woodstock Express first opened in 1974, a year before Kings Dominion made its debut. The roller coaster was part of the new amusement park's preview center and the Lion Country Safari attraction.[1] The ride was originally named Scooby Doo.

The roller coaster was renamed Scooby-Doo's Ghoster Coaster in 1997. The name was just shortened to Ghoster Coaster in 2010. It then became Woodstock Express in 2013.[2][3]
