Kings Dominion’s Soak City to make big splash with expansions, renovations in 2020

Kings Dominion is making waves in May 2020 with the renovation of the Coconut Shores area of their 20-acre water park, Soak City. Additions to the area include three major new enhancements, the park announced this week.

  • Lighthouse Landing is set in an oversized wading pool and combines the interactivity of a play structure with water slides and provides fun for the whole family. The multi-level play structure will feature two gigantic tipping buckets and more than 200 interactive features, eight twisting slides and more.
  • Little ones will love jumping waves and making a splash in Sand Dune Lagoon, located just steps away from Lighthouse Landing. With a water depth of 24” this mini wave pool is a great way for little swimmers to cool down with waves of 12”.
  • A new dining experience designed by Kings Dominion’s Executive Chef, Denis Callinan, will bring families together for a relaxing meal. Guests can enjoy family favorites like flatbread pizzas or delight in Latin and Asian flavors. Guest 21+ can also quench their thirst with tropical alcoholic beverages and local craft beer.

As children play nearby, parents can grab a chaise lounge and relax in the newly renovated spaces of Lighthouse Landing and Sand Dune lagoon, designed with spaces to soak up the sun or chill in the shade.

“The investment in Soak City demonstrates our commitment to being Virginia’s premier water park,” said Tony Johnson, Vice President and General Manager of Kings Dominion.  “Offering a high-quality water park within our amusement park gives guests of every age a chance to cool down during the hottest part of the summer season.  It’s our mission to make people happy and we believe our 2020 water park enhancements will go a long way to doing just that.”

Guests who want to be among the first to experience these exciting additions at the park can purchase 2020 Kings Dominion Season Passes now. Passholders enjoy many benefits, including Bring-A-Friend discounts, food and merchandise discounts, and early access to select rides and the water park, plus admission to Halloween Haunt, The Great Pumpkin Fest and WinterFest in 2019 and 2020. Soak City is included with general park admission.

In celebration of National Roller Coaster Day Weekend, guests will receive one free Fast Lane Plus to use this Fall when they purchase a 2020 Season Pass by August 18th.

There is plenty to see at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in January, as the warm and cozy conservatory beckons with aromatic orchids, passion flowers, and other tropical plants. Outdoor blooms are even more treasured because they are unexpected.

Garden admission is free through January 19th, from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. The Garden Café and Robins Tea House are closed during this time, but the rest of the property remains open.

See Lewis Ginter’s January blooms page for other highlights of winter interest and blooms.

A first-ever chance to stay overnight at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts goes on sale today.

As part of the exhibition, Edward Hopper and the American Hotel, opening Oct. 26, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will recreate Western Motel—one of Edward Hopper’s best-known paintings—as a three-dimensional motel space.

The room is located near the painting that inspired its creation, along with other works by one of America’s most celebrated artists. Some of the “Hopper Hotel Experience” packages include dinner at VMFA’s fine dining restaurant, Amuse; a guided tour led by the curator; an exhibition catalog; and miniature golf at the newly opened Hotel Greene among other features. This is the first time that VMFA has recreated a work of art as a three-dimensional space and made it available to stay in overnight.
