February 11th #KD40 Construction Update
Previous KD40 Birthday Bash: A Coaster Enthusiast Event
Kings Dominion just released a few pictures of the park covered in snow, but the way I look at it, it’s a mini update of some of the enhancements that we will be seeing this upcoming season!
International Street Fountains
The fountains will feature a new LED lighting package and some additional refurbishments.
International Street pool: the LED”s and water pumps/jets have been removed
Volcano: The Blast Coaster
So far what we have heard is that the mountain will undergo a multi-year renovation project as well as an enhanced entrance and exit that will result in more riders per hour. Here is some of the latest pictures of the queue house and its surroundings:
The entrance in the snow
The side of the mountain
Hey, there is something new here???
This new addition is suppose to help increase the ride’s capacity.
Last but not least, the bottom pool sitting empty.
Anaconda will be receiving a much needed coat of paint to help brighten up Safari Village. The track and supports will remain the same color. As seen below, nothing has been done yet.
So far, Anaconda has not been painted
The iconic clock will be located in its original location at the end of the center street (the Snoopy Starlight’s Spectacular pathway).
The clock will be located in the same spot that it was before!
The floral clock location being overlooked by the Carousel
That is all of the update for #KD40, but here are some more pictures of Kings Dominion covered in a blanket of snow!

Snow is sitting on the Shockwave helix

Hey guys, are y’all excited for #KD40?!?
Still standing strong through this cold off-season

Hey Charlie, I think you have some frozen drool hangin’ there…
Snoopy is still kicking back even though he isn’t spitting any water right now.
Do you have any photos of the park during its “golden years?” The park is asking for people to send in photos to email@example.com so that your photo can be displayed in an in-park mosaic! The last day to submit your photos is March 31st!
