“When Kings Dominion announced its 40th Celebration earlier this fall, the response was overwhelming that our guests wanted to see the popular Singing Mushrooms brought back,” said Kings Dominion’s Vice President and General Manager Pat Jones. “As an employee and fan of Kings Dominion since the 70’s, I am excited to see one of my personal favorites return to the park for a new generation of guests to enjoy.”

So why write a big post about some mushrooms? Well, because I still think it's terrific how much Kings Dominion is celebrating their 40th anniversary... and spending cash on small things like bringing back this display. I can honestly say that I would never believe that this type of thing would have happened under old Cedar Fair management, a positive change in my book.
Kings Dominion has promised other surprises for the celebration to be revealed throughout the winter, so we still have more to look forward to!
