By February 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Kings Dominion opens for the 2013 season on March 29! Eight new rides will open this year at Kings Dominion's Planet Snoopy. All of the new rides, based on one of the most beloved comic strip characters, are designed for families to experience together. Planet Snoopy will boast 18 total rides and will span nearly 14-acres, doubling its current size. The new rides include:
  • Snoopy's Rocket Express: An aerial monorail that gives families a view high above Planet Snoopy.

  • Flying Ace Balloon Race: Hot air balloons that lift up 15 feet into the air, as you spin around. Each balloon represents a different country throughout the world.

  • Linus Launcher: This ride will give families a sense as if they are flying around together in Planet Snoopy.

  • Charlie Brown's Wind Up: Families will hop in and swing around on this baseball-themed ride.

  • Snoopy's Junction: It's all aboard a Snoopy-themed railway, with Woodstock leading the way.

  • Lucy's Tugboat: Come on board a rocking tugboat, as guests set sail with the entire family by their side.

  • Snoopy's Space Buggies: Defy gravity, as families hop into moon buggies that bounce up and down and rotate in a circle.

  • Woodstock Whirlybirds: Spin around in the classic teacups, with a new Woodstock-themed twist.
