“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.”

The newly redesigned area will also have live entertainment. Here are some of the new features:

  • 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 flatbread 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.
