DOSWELL, Va. —  Kings Dominion will add three new rides to the theme park’s Planet Snoopy section next year and will allow children between the ages of 3 to 5 to enter the park for free with a special pass.

“Additions include three family rides, a new event space, and upgraded food and beverage locations. Plus, children three to five years of age can experience all that Planet Snoopy has to offer for FREE with the brand new Kings Dominion Pre-K Pass,” park officials said in a news release.

Here’s a detailed description of the new rides from the park:

  • Kite Eating Tree – Charlie Brown’s kite is stuck in a tree again, can you help get it down? On this family ride, guests will be propelled to the top of the tower and bounce down to the platform as they experience sensations of weightlessness.
  • Sally’s Sea Plane – Join Sally as she soars through the air high above the sea! Kids and their parents are in store for an adventure with a trip on Sally’s airplane. Take a trip round-and-round on this giant plane as it rotates and rises into the air.
  • Peanuts™500 – Pick your car and rev up the engine with the Peanuts™ crew on this fun car ride that is the perfect size for your little racers. Start your engines and hit the track in race cars designed for parents and children to ride together as they move in a circle and whip around the corner on a closed track.

The new additions mean the park’s 14-acre Planet Snoopy will now have 20 rides.

“The limited-time Kings Dominion Pre-K Pass is brand new for 2017 and grants complimentary admission to children ages three to five years for the entire 2017 season. Online registration for the Pre-K Pass is available beginning Aug. 20 and can be processed at the park beginning Sept. 3.”

If you sign up for the Pre-K Pass, your little one will also receive one free visit so you can check out Planet Snoopy’s Great Pumpkin Fest,  which starts Sept. 24.
