New daytime children’s Halloween events debuted Saturday, September 28
“With the introduction of the bigger, better Planet Snoopy earlier this year Kings Dominion, now is the perfect time to unveil an exciting children’s Halloween event that the entire family can experience together,” said Kings Dominion Vice President and General Manager Pat Jones.
Planet Spooky will feature Halloween family-favorite activities, including a hay maze, pumpkin painting, the chance to get behind the wheel of a pedal tractor, live entertainment and more. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite costume to Planet Spooky and take part in the Peanuts Costume Parade at Snoopy’s Moon Bounce. Children will march in the parade with America’s favorite Beagle Snoopy and the Peanuts gang through the park each day, leading up to the start of the Peanuts Rockin’ Party live show.
Also new in 2013 at Kings Dominion is the opportunity to Trick or Treat with the Dinos at Dinosaurs Alive!, the park’s 6-acre animatronic dinosaur park. Guests will be able to experience some of the park’s 39 life-sized dinosaurs dressed in costumes, including a fairy princess, bunny rabbit, clown, doctor and more. Along the way, kids can fill up their Halloween candy bag full of the classic Halloween treats.
Planet Spooky and Trick or Treat with the Dinos at Dinosaurs Alive! will operate on Saturday’s and Sunday’s from September 28th through October 27th from 12 – 5 p.m. Guests can get the most up-to-date hours of operation by visiting www.kingsdominion.com/daytime. Planet Spooky is free with park admission. Trick or Treat with the Dinos at Dinosaurs Alive! is just $5 with park admission.
