What’s New at Kings Dominion
I was invited to a press event at Kings Dominion to hear the latest exciting news for the 2018 season and to be one of the first to ride Twisted Timber. You know that last year there were three new rides at Kings Dominion in Snoopy’s Planet and the addition of a Pre-K Pass for free admission for children under 5. You know that they added FREE wifi throughout the park! What you may not know is that Twisted Timbers was built using some of the Hurler’s track and then they added metal lines, and the ride was
according to my son awesome. It was so awesome in fact we went three times in a row. We were limited on time or we would have done it again. We found it more exciting each time we rode. The stats for this roller coaster at Kings Dominion are:
Twisted Timbers is an innovative hybrid coaster that uses the latest technology to combine wood supports with a steel track to give riders an exhilarating experience with maneuvers previously unimaginable on a traditional wooden coaster. The coaster was designed and built by Rocky Mountain Construction of Idaho, a company renowned for reimagining wooden coasters.
- 109-foot tall barrel roll drop
- Over 3000 feet of track
- Top speed of 54 miles per hour
- Three loops
- Three overbanked turns
- 20 airtime moments
We loved them all at first my son was a ittle scared but after his first ride he was a huge fan. We plan to visit again and we will head straight for Twisted Timbers.

The line up of new rides at Kings Dominion starts with the Kite Eating Tree – Charlie Brown’s kite is stuck in a tree again, can you help get it down? On this family ride, guests will be propelled to the top of the tower and bounce down to the platform as they experience sensations of weightlessness. I know my little guy is going to love this ride.
The newest character to have a ride named in her honor is Sally. Riders will climb aboard Sally’s Sea Plane and soar through the air high above the sea! Kids and their parents are in store for an adventure with a trip on Sally’s airplane. Take a journey round-and-round on this giant plane as it rotates and rises into the air.
My sons have always loved to ride on the rides that put them behind the wheel, and I know the new Peanuts™500 is sure to be a fast hit. Start your engines and hit the track in race cars designed for parents and children to ride together as they move in a circle and whip around the corner on a closed path.
