Kings Dominion Expands Park With Planet Snoopy | Families
DOSWELL, VA — Togetherness takes on a whole new meaning as Kings Dominion announces plans for
a multi-million dollar addition to its children’s area, Planet Snoopy. This 7-acre expansion will make
Planet Snoopy the world’s largest PEANUTS™ themed children’s area when it debuts in the spring of 2013.
Planet Snoopy will boast at least 12 new and re-themed attractions based on one of the most beloved comic
strip characters. The attractions, designed for families to ride together, include an opportunity for a family
to take to the skies in a balloon ride, twirl around in classic tea cups with a new twist and hop aboard a
PEANUTS-themed railway. When the expansion is complete, Planet Snoopy will span nearly 14-acres.
In addition to the new family rides, Planet Snoopy will also feature:
• A new iconic entrance fountain
• Two live shows featuring family-friendly entertainment
• Additional daily meet-and-greet opportunities with the PEANUTS™ characters including
Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and, of course the world’s most popular Beagle – Snoopy
• A newly expanded 1,100 square-foot family care facility equipped with changing stations,
feeding rooms and nap areas
• An open air marketplace featuring fresh fruit and food
Planet Snoopy is based on the popular and world-wide sensation of Charles Schulz’s PEANUTS characters,
which have been family favorites for more than 60 years.
