Cedar Fair's Virginia amusement and waterpark, Kings Dominion, has announced three new additions to its 20-acre (80,900sq m, 265,500sq ft) Soak City waterpark, which is set to open in 2020.

Set within a newly redesigned area of the park called Coconut Shores, guests will find a 45ft-tall (13.7m) aqua play structure called Lighthouse Landing, a 3,000sq ft (914sq m) wave pool for children called Sand Dune Lagoon and a dining experience.

Lighthouse Landing will include more than 200 interactive elements, eight slides and two large tipping buckets. In Sand Dune Lagoon, the smaller children can ride foot-high waves in a 2ft deep pool with a waterfall, while beach creatures such as coastal crabs and tropical turtles add to the fun.

"The investment in Soak City demonstrates our commitment to being Virginia's premier waterpark," said Tony Johnson, vice president and general manager of Kings Dominion. "It's our mission to make people happy and we believe our 2020 waterpark enhancements will go a long way to doing that."

Kings Dominion is selling 2020 season passes now, complete with food and merchandise discounts, bring-a-friend incentives, and admission to upcoming Halloween and winter events.
