When Kings Dominion announced their bigger, better Planet Snoopy for 2013 the park wasn't quite ready to release the full details on all the new rides and attractions that would be located in it. With details finalized, the full list has now been announced. Brand new rides include:
• Flying Ace Balloon Race: Hot air balloons that lift up 15 feet into the air, as you spin around. Each balloon represents a different country throughout the world.
• Linus Launcher: This ride will give families a sense as if they are flying around together in Planet Snoopy.
• Charlie Brown’s Wind Up: Families will hop in and swing around on this baseball-themed ride.
• Snoopy’s Junction: It’s all aboard a Snoopy-themed railway, with Woodstock leading the way.
• Lucy’s Tugboat: Come on board a rocking tugboat, as guests set sail with the entire family by their side.
• Snoopy’s Space Buggies: Defy gravity, as families hop into moon buggies that bounce up and down and rotate in a circle.
• Woodstock Whirlybirds: Spin around in the classic teacups, with a new Woodstock-themed twist.
The ride collection almost appears to be a "best of" from the already existing Planet Snoopy areas at other Cedar Fair parks. Ten additional existing, re-themed rides will also be in the expansive 14 acre Planet Snoopy, giving it a grand total of 18.
The park is currently holding a contest to locate a "kidcaster" for Planet Snoopy updates throughout the winter, to be used in videos, Twitter and Facebook updates. Folks can submit their kid into the contest through January 7th.
