WindSeeker Giant Swing Ride at Kings Dominion

Park: Closed Waterpark: Closed View Hours
Take the high road to adventure!

Who said swings are for kids? Strap in for some big-kid fun because this ride was designed with thrill-seekers in mind. It’s part nostalgia, part traditional swing, and all flying high. Feel the exhilaration of a bird in flight as the ride’s mighty arms extend outward at a 45-degree angle and the swings reach incredible speeds of 30 miles per hour. The Windseeker’s dizzying height of 300-feet (yes, that’s 27 stories) promises views of almost the entire park and out as far as 18 miles on a clear day.

What’s more, Windseeker is two rides in one, offering a totally different experience at night! When the sun goes down, the fun lights up with Windseeker’s elaborate light show. As the swings ascend to the top of the tower, a supernatural light display comes to life with a kaleidoscope of colorful patterns and shapes.
