Breaking More Records, Celebrating a Milestone
In 2010, the park made national headlines again with the addition of Intimidator 305TM! At 305 feet tall and speeds of more than 90 mph, Intimidator 305TM is one of the tallest and fastest coasters of its kind on the East Coast. Themed after stock-car racing great, Dale Earnhardt, Intimidator 305TM is a signature ride for all thrill-seekers. Also new in 2010, was Planet Snoopy. The world’s most famous beagle, Snoopy and the PEANUTSTM gang offered a new and fresh look for the children’s area. A year later in 2011, Snoopy lit up the night with more than a million LED lights with “Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular,” a night time walk-through light and sound experience featuring Snoopy and the PEANUTSTM gang.
In 2012, two new additions: Dinosaurs Alive! and WindSeeker were added. Visitors to Kings Dominion could step back in time to periods between 245 million and 65 million years ago in Dinosaurs Alive!, the park’s unique six-acre animatronic dinosaur park featuring 36 life-sized dinosaurs. WindSeeker towered into the sky more than 300 feet in the air and speeds up to 30 mph for an 18 mile view into the Richmond skyline for families to enjoy.
In 2013, the children’s area saw more changes as the PEANUTSTM theme completely took hold. Planet Snoopy became the world's largest PEANUTSTM themed children's area and included the former Kidzville children’s area. The bigger and better Planet Snoopy featured 8 new rides (18 total) for families to enjoy together. Other new features in 2013 included the largest entertainment line-up in years, with seven new live shows. Kings Dominion’s all-new Planet Snoopy was even recognized in Sept. of 2013 as one of the top children’s areas in the theme park industry by voting conducted by Amusement Today, an industry publication.
