Kings Dominion Preview Day

Kings Dominion underwent many changes during the ’13-’14 off-season and we got to see them all at preview day on March 30th.

The first thing you’ll notice right as you enter the park. The Kings Dominion logo on International Street has changed to represent the 40th anniversary.

Next is Rebel Yell! This classic woody got a great update! Rebel Yell received new red and blue paint, along with colored chaser lights. Both sides were racing each other Sunday and we hope this will continue throughout the season.

Lots of retro greatness was brought back this year for the 40th anniversary. The Floral Clock was looking very nice from Central Walkway and the Eiffel Tower!
