I missed it... really had a question about the Volcano Station re-do that was announced but then went silent.
Leviathan - "I am a B&M, I am clearly not the father. I305 is not my child."
Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure"
Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father!
Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"

I've gone pantless!

Kings Dominion has firmed up its shows for this season. Here's the official word from the park.

Kings Dominion Announces Largest Entertainment Line-Up in Years
Seven new live shows headlined by a BMX-style show and Broadway-style musical revue

DOSWELL, VA (March 12, 2013) – Kings Dominion, the Mid-Atlantic’s premier amusement park for family-fun, has announced a major expansion in its live show offerings for the 2013 season, highlighted by a high-energy BMX bike show and a Broadway-style musical revue. In all, the entertainment package will include 7 new live shows, 10 total, making it the largest entertainment line-up in years at Kings Dominion.

Headlining the 2013 live entertainment package is the all new “All Wheel Sports,” a BMX-style show with bikers, skaters, and gymnasts who were semifinalists on Season 7 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Park guests will watch in awe as the cast will flip, dive, and perform stunts that defy gravity. “All Wheel Sports” will be performed in the PEANUTSTM Showplace Theater in Planet Snoopy daily from June 22 – August 18.

Broadway is making its way to Kings Dominion with the all new “On Broadway” musical revue at the Kings Dominion Theatre. From the classics that started a sensation to the biggest hits in New York, “On Broadway” takes over from June 15 – August 18.

The additional live entertainment schedule includes:

NEW – Charlie Brown’s All Star’s: Help cheer on Charlie Brown, Lucy and Linus as they gear up for the big baseball game in this all-new family musical, running March 29 – October 27.
NEW – Schroeder’s Sing-Along: Warm up your voice and join Schroeder and the PEANUTSTM gang for singing and dancing fun, running March 29 – October 27.
Got Country: Kick back and relax as country music takes center stage as we celebrate some of today’s hottest hits, running March 29 – September 2.
NEW – Karaoke Superstars: Take to the microphone with the biggest hits from the 50’s to today and be a star on stage, running March 29 – September 2.
NEW – Pop Fusion: Keep the party going as Kings Dominion presents today’s most electrifying hits, running April 27 – September 2. PEANUTSTM Rockin’ Party: Join the PEANUTSTM gang for a rockin’ party on International Street, photo opportunities, along with meet and greets following the show.
NEW – Dominion at Dusk: The sky lights up at night with “Dominion at Dusk,” featuring more than one million LED lights in “Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular,” a chance to join singers and dancers with a new live show “Street Beats,” and time to blast off with our nightly fireworks show. “Dominion at Dusk” will start at dusk on all 10:00 PM park closings, April 27 through September 1.

“This expansion of our live entertainment, along with our new Planet Snoopy at Kings Dominion, emphasizes our commitment to provide our guests with the best family-fun in the region,” Kings Dominion entertainment manger Jason Holbrooks said.

The expanded live entertainment package resulted in an additional approximately 50 employees hired to perform, with a majority of the entertainers from the Richmond area.

Well that settles that...my BF will DEFINITELY want to go to KD to see this when we are down in Virginia for a wedding in June! ;)

I was hoping for more of the Cirque-style shows at parks this year, but hopefully they will take off in the coming years.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

The only Cirque-style show at a Cedar Fair park in 2013, that I know of, is being performed at Canada's Wonderland. Whether or not it branches out to the other parks in the future is unknown. The Broadway review show is being performed at Cedar Point and California's Great America; in addition to KD.

^Thanks for the info...I'm sure we'll catch the Broadway one at both CP and KD this year.

I really enjoyed the Cirque show at CW during Leviathan Bash last year, so that (plus seeing the Love show in Vegas) really made me hope that these types of shows continue to expand to other parks. Very entertaining.

Challenge me at Donkey Kong...I dare ya!

Not only am I excited to see how fresh the kiddie area turns out, but I'm also looking forward to seeing the games ripped out of SkyFlyer Plaza for the new Grove Stage.

13. Gene stated that Kings Dominion will be getting a new style of park map for this year. I thought he stated the park will be the first to get this new style of map in the Cedar Fair chain.


So the park isn't changing their map design? That one looks just like the other (meh) CF maps/KD maps from previous years. All the other major changes are totally awesome for the park. I'm definitely glad to see them trying to improve.
