New Family Fun Arriving at Kings Dominion in 2017

This past weekend Kings Dominion held a special announcement inside the park to show off what they have planned for their 2017 season.  The focus will be on families next year, with the headlining changes taking place in Planet Snoopy.

After this expansion is complete the 14 acre Planet Snoopy will have a total of 20 rides, three of which will be brand new:

•  Kite Eating Tree – On this family ride, guests will be propelled to the top of the tower and bounce down to the platform as they experience sensations of weightlessness.
•  Sally's Sea Plane – Kids and their parents are in store for an adventure with a trip on Sally's airplane. Take a trip round-and-round on this giant plane as it rotates and rises into the air.
 •  Peanuts™500 – Pick your car and rev up the engine with the Peanuts™ crew on this fun car ride that is the perfect size for your little racers. Start your engines and hit the track in race cars designed for parents and children to ride together as they move in a circle and whip around the corner on a closed track.

The three new rides have been successfully installed at other Planet Snoopy areas at Cedar Fair parks, so they're already proven to be crowd pleasers.  Planet Snoopy will also see a brand new event space be built, along with upgrades to the area's food and beverage offerings.

Kings Dominion will also introduce a Pre-K Pass that allows kids ages 3 through 5 free admission all season long.  Parents can register them on the park's website for the pass, and even get a free visit this fall.
