What's New in 2022!

Kings Dominion |
August 12, 2021

In case you missed it, the park introduced guests to all new adventures coming in 2022. The livestreamed event not only showcased the renaming and upgrade of the Safari Village area at the park, it also featured a brand new roller coaster coming in 2022, and what new scary and merry attractions guests can experience fall and winter 2021.

NEW in 2022: Jungle X-Pedition and Tumbili

Explorers wanted! The park is renaming and upgrading the Safari Village area of the park and introducing Jungle X-Pedition. At Jungle X-Pedition, guests will be immersed in a completely transformed jungle experience featuring a brand-new roller coaster, new signature dining location, all new retail store, and more discoveries to come – all richly themed to reflect the adventure of an archeological expedition.

One of these discoveries: Tumbili (toom-bee-lee -- the Swahili word for “monkey”), a 4D Free Spin roller coaster that uses state-of-the art magnetic technology to control and induce spinning as the riders tumble along the track. Riders will climb aboard and travel up 112 feet on a 90 degree vertical lift hill and make their way back to the bottom as they spin along the triple stacked track featuring two beyond-vertical raven drops.

As with any expedition, discoveries will be made along the way. Stay tuned to find out all of the details of what adventures have been unearthed at Kings Dominion!
