All designed around the "Peanuts" comic strip, the new "Planet Snoopy" kid's area at King's Dominion in Doswell will be the largest of its' kind in the world.
The 14 acres will hold 18 total rides, eight of them brand new. Unlike the old area, this will be completely about a family immersion. Spokesman Gene Petriello says in some of the rides, parents and other adults can accompany kids on the rides.
From Snoopy's Rocket Express and the Linus Launcher to Lucy's Tugboat and the revamped Woodstock Express, Spokesman Gene Petriello says there will be something for everyone.
Though there will be no high soaring new additions, the expansion presents a bit of a challenge for building crews. Petriello says that each of the rides has its' own electrical system and other infrastructure and that has to be linked together throughout the 14 acres.
