water park Saturday, June 19

DOSWELL, Va. (June 16, 2021) – Kings Dominion is bringing a tidal wave of fun this summer with the debut of Coconut Shores, a new area in their Soak City water park. Both Soak City and Coconut Shores will open to the public on June 19.

The newly redesigned area features two family-friendly attractions, a unique dining experience and live entertainment, including:

  • Lighthouse Landing is set in an oversized wading pool and provides fun for the whole family by combining the interactivity of a play structure with water slides. 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 36 inches, this mini-wave pool is a great way for little swimmers to cool down with one-foot waves.
  • A new food truck-themed dining experience designed by Kings Dominion’s Executive Chef, Denis Callinan, will help families fuel up for more fun. At Beach Street, guests can enjoy family favorites from four themed food trucks including flat bread pizzas at Pizza Paradise, tangy orange chicken or noodle bowls at Beachside Bowls, and hand-battered fish and chips at The Captain’s Catch. Guests age 21 and older can also quench their thirst with cocktails, wine and local craft beer at the Sand Bar.
  • Guests can take a break at Beach Street and enjoy live entertainment from The Coconuts, featuring a lineup of favorite summer feel-good songs.

“Soak City water park is a summer tradition for so many families in the central Virginia area,” said Bridgette Bywater, vice president and general manager of Kings Dominion. “The addition of Coconut Shores is an example our commitment to providing unique experiences the whole family can enjoy from the first splashes and beyond.”

Access to Soak City water park is included with a 2021 Season Pass. Passholder Reservations or dated park-specific tickets are required for entry to Kings Dominion and Soak City water park.

Guests can enjoy season-long access to Kings Dominion and Soak City, free parking, discounts and more with a 2021 Gold Season Pass. Guests ages 3 to 5 years old get season long access to the park for FREE with the Pre-K Pass. Valid proof of age is required before July 4.
