There are two types of people: Roller Coaster People and Water Park People.
Thankfully Kings Dominion is combining amazing roller coasters with thrilling water slides to please even a house divided.
In it’s first expansion since 2007, Kings Dominion is expanding Water Works and turning into Soak City with all new ways to beat the heat and get totally soaked.
“The Soak City expansion shows our investment and commitment to being home to Virginia’s premier water park. We are thrilled to offer two parks for the price of one, which is a great added-value to our guests who appreciate a chance to cool off during our hot summer season,” says Pat Jones, Vice President and General Manager of Kings Dominion. “The new water park will have thrills and chills for every age, creating memories that last a lifetime.”
Soak City will feature many of the park’s popular water rides and attractions while incorporating all-new attractions and elements including:
- A 65-foot tall slide tower that features three thrilling attractions, each one providing a unique riding experience. Paradise Plunge sends thrill-seekers into an almost vertical free fall as the floor drops out from underneath their feet. On Aqua Blast, riders are sent twisting and spiraling through an enclosed chute featuring 360-degree turns. Thunder Falls launches riders in a tube down a series of intense drops and turns.
- Splash Island, a new children’s area that will double the size of the current children’s options in the water park. The family-friendly splash zone will create a magical play environment for children of all ages and abilities. Features include small slides for young children and multiple jets of streaming water that spray up from the ground, as well as overhead. Splash Island allows family members to play, socialize and enjoy the water park experience together.
- Improved Guest Amenities: Upgraded family changing areas, an additional restroom complex, expanded deluxe cabanas featuring WiFi and television, and new restaurant concepts designed by Kings Dominion’s Executive Chef.
- The Soak City makeover will include an updated entrance area and landscaping throughout the 20-acre water park.
The newly expanded Soak City opens May 23rd, 2015.
