Hmm that is strange...You're right, how can it be a "normal" ring of smoke and yet stay in place, not expand, and keep a constant thickness? Nothing in this adds up at all...
To Asala (Removed real name)
The rings seen over the park are from the Volcano “The Blast Coaster,” roller coaster. Before every coaster train launch, the mountain spews a 10-foot tall column of fire. Depending on the weather conditions this column of fire produces a smoke ring that can linger over the park for quite some time. Typically, on days with high humidity and no wind, are when these rings form and hang around.
If you are looking for more “eye-witness” accounts of these smoke rings roller coaster enthusiasts have been seeing these rings since the ride was opened in 1998. You can visit www.coastercrew.com or www.kdfansite.com to find some park enthusiasts that can confirm this process.
Thank you for you interest in Kings Dominion.

It looks like a smoke ring generated by one of those fairground contraptions. Do a search for 'smoke rings' on YouTube and you'll find lots of examples just like this.

The people at the park are dis-info agents. It's really a ship employing a cloaking device.
