The water park at Kings Dominion has gone through several changes over the years.  From “Hurricane Reef” in 1992 to Waterworks currently.  Well the park has announced yet again that Waterworks will be rebranded into “Soak City” for 2015.

The water park will retain many of its current slides along with gaining three new ones.  The largest addition will be a 65-foot tall slide tower that features the three new attractions; Paradise Plunge, Aqua Blast, and Thunder Falls.

Paradise Plunge is reminiscent of Ihu’s Breakaway Falls at Aquatica where the floor opens below you sending riders on a near vertical plummet.

Aqua Blast, riders are sent twisting and spiraling through an enclosed chute featuring 360-degree turns across 449 feet of slide before they’re dropped out into a pool of water.

Thunder Falls guests climb into a single or double raft before being launched down a series of intense drops and turns.

The park will also be adding a new kids splash area called Splash Island.

The park is also expanding the pool-side cabanas, upgrading the bath houses and adding additional restrooms.


Kings Dominion also started a poll via their official Facebook page as to what to name the tower that houses the three new attractions.  You can choose from Hurricane Heights or Tsunami Summit.  The winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 10.
