A Battle is Brewing at Kings Dominion Theme Park

Step into a brand new virtual world at Kings Dominion (Doswell, Virginia, I-95, exit 98) as the park debuts an interactive, competitive gaming experience – “The Battle for Kings Dominion.”

This immersive gaming app combines augmented reality with traditional gaming and will take the in-park experience to the next level, allowing guests to declare their loyalty to a coaster alliance and then “battle” against each other to take control of the Kings Dominion realm.

“We are excited to introduce our guests to an entirely new digital layer of the park experience,” said Gary Chadwick, Kings Dominion’s Vice President and General Manager. “Being able to gamify the park through the Battle for Kings Dominion, from interactive queue lines and midways to the personification of rides, will make for an even more engaging day.”

The cutting-edge Extended Experience game was developed by experiential design experts Holovis. Gamers will be able to choose from five coaster alliances: Dominator, Flight of Fear, Intimidator® 305, Avalanche or Volcano. Each alliance has its own unique character avatar and a custom battle shield. Guests will compete against each other and attempt to defeat the other alliances for dominance of the park throughout the day. Players can earn points in various ways including playing augmented reality mini-games in special parts of the ride queue lines, taking over territory from competing teams, answering trivia and riding roller coasters. Augmented reality moments from the experience will also come to life on the guest’s Apple® or Android™ device and can be shared with friends and on social media.

They can even continue to customize their Coaster Alliance avatar from home as people prepare for their next visit.”

The Battle for Kings Dominion will be available for download on May 19.

Kings Dominion Now Open and Introduces New Thrill Ride

The wait is finally over! Kings Dominion‘s newest thrill ride, Delirium, made its public debut with the parks 2016 season opening on Friday, March 25.

Construction of the new ride began in the fall of 2015 in the Candy Apple Grove section of the park.

Delirium is a powerful, spinning pendulum on which 40 riders are strapped into their seats, facing outward on a giant ring. As their feet dangle, they begin slowly swinging back and forth while the ring starts to rotate. The ride quickly gains momentum and before they know it, riders are getting swirling views of the park. On Delirium, guests soar to a height of 115 feet at a maximum arc angle of 120 degrees.

Delirium will delight thrill-seekers of all ages as they fly through the air, experiencing gravity defying hang time.

“We want Kings Dominion to continue to be the top destination for thrill-seekers and families alike. The opening of Delirium marks our continued commitment to providing those thrills for the entire family to enjoy,” says Pat Jones, Vice President and General Manager of Kings Dominion. “Delirium is a unique, exciting ride unlike any other in our park and it’s a fantastic addition to Candy Apple Grove.”

Additional upgrades were made to Candy Apple Grove including a renovated restroom complex and the addition of a shaded garden seating area.

Kings Dominion opened to the public for its 42nd season on Friday, March 25th. Kings Dominion is located in Doswell, Virginia, just off I-95, exit 98.
