Kings Dominion ‘Coconut Shores’ kids water play area renovation – designed and under construction by ADG, made headlines this month in May’s edition of FunWorld trade magazine.
The new attractions include a new multi-level play structure with over 200 interactive water features and over eight kid-friendly slides plus ADG’s Mini Harbour® water ride attraction. ADG’s Mini Harbour is a kid’s miniature wave pool powered by WaveTek® technology. With wave height up to 12”, this attraction is designed to provide real-feel ocean experience for the youngest of guests.
ADG’s indepth™ approach to waterpark planning and design allowed Kings Dominion to revitalize not just a single attraction but an entire area of the park providing families with a designated area to relax and enjoy the water play area while also creating an area for incremental revenue generation via new food and beverage outlets.
“Working on the Kings Dominion renovation project allowed us at ADG to do what we do best- think outside the box,” said Jim Dunn, President of Aquatic Development Group, “A client came to us with a specific request, budget and time frame for their project. But after looking at their site, we determined we could enhance their project by reutilizing existing foundations, filtration and equipment to maximize their project goals all while staying within their budget and their timeline – giving them not only the one ride but TWO all within the same footprint. We are very excited to watch the Kings Dominion Coconut Shores project come to life.”
In addition to the two new attractions for Coconut Shores there will also be a new dining experience with assorted cuisines and cocktails for the adult guests. As children play nearby, parents can grab a chaise lounge and relax in the newly renovated spaces of Lighthouse Landing and Sand Dune Lagoon, designed with spaces to soak up the sun or chill in the shade.
Surrounded by natural landscape and mature trees that will provide copious amounts of shade, the new Coconut Shores area of the water park will be a perfect zone for families to relax, splash and enjoy a day at the park.
