I wish I could have gotten to riding Volcano, it looked like an amazing ride! At least I can see it in a museum!

Its a shame its service life came to such an abrupt end, but it's nice to see a parts of the ride preserved for historic value.

The National Roller Coaster Museum doesn't (yet) have visitor facilities, but the collection can be seen during special events and by arrangement.

If it would've ran for just.. like 2 months in 2018 I'd've ridden it haha
One childhood dream that won't come to fruition. Least I got to see it standing!

Random: Did Volcano have both a load and unload station or just one station?

Also, was it not running much at the end of its life?

It had separate load and unload stations.

It was down quite a bit in its final years, and being built into a former dark ride building didn't make maintenance any easier. It was up and running at the beginning of the 2018 season; I got what were to be my final rides on Opening Day.

Being there with you on that opening day, I do not remember there being a separate unload station.

I am so sad I missed out on this coaster. I had planned to go in 2017 but they fell through due to money constraints. I am so upset with myself over not being able to ride this.
