Doswell, VA – You may find your wallet a little thicker as you enter Kings Dominion theme park next summer. For the first time ever, the park announced that they will lower their regular one-day admission ticket for 2007, along with debuting a multi-million dollar expansion of the WaterWorks waterpark.
The regular one-day admission ticket for 2007 will drop five dollars, to $44.95 for guests ages 3 to 61, who are 48 inches and taller.
In addition, the park is introducing a new Junior-Senior ticket for those under 48 inches tall or ages 62 and older. The Junior-Senior ticket will be only $24.95. This new pricing structure offers a dramatic savings for families.
According to Kings Dominion, the new Junior Senior ticket is a savings of up to $20 per ticket.
The Park will also reintroduce a late afternoon admission called Starlight. The new Starlight admission valid after 4:00 pm will be just $29.95. This is a new opportunity for guests to pay less and enjoy the park in the evening when it tends to be less crowded.
The new pricing is the first time Kings Dominion has decreased its price of admission since opening in 1975.
Also for 2007, the Park is expanding its WaterWorks waterpark, with three major new attractions.
"New water attractions, new price, new year," said Richard Zimmerman, vice president and general manager of Kings Dominion. "We know our guests are looking for ways to stretch their entertainment dollar and next year, Kings Dominion will be an even better value.
Beginning with Tidal Wave Bay, Kings Dominion is adding a second wave pool to the popular waterpark.
Zimmerman added, "With our expanded waterpark, and our unparalleled collection of roller coasters, rides and attractions, no other park in the Mid-Atlantic can offer so much fun and excitement."
The second new attraction, Tornado combines high thrills with spinning and churning wet spills. Starting from 65 feet in the air, the park says the Tornado provides riders with a unique water experience that everyone will want to ride again and again.
Finally, the addition of the Zoom Flume, will give families the opportunity to enjoy a rafting adventure together. Four riders at a time can climb aboard the raft and "zoom" down the curving and tilting raging water path.
"Summer fun has always been about thrill rides and cooling off at the waterpark. The addition of these great attractions to WaterWorks will bring something new and memorable for our guests," Zimmerman said.
Zimmerman also noted that 2007 will be the first full season that Kings Dominion is part of the Cedar Fair Entertainment Company of theme parks. Cedar Fair, based in Sandusky, Ohio, purchased the five Paramount parks last July. The company now owns and operates 12 amusement parks and four waterparks in North America.
