It's been four seasons since the Royal Fountain received its major technological upgrade, and that new technology is finally being put to use! As someone who has wanted to see a true fountain show at Kings Dominion for years now, I'm ecstatic about this addition.

It's long deserved. It should've been like that since 1975!

So it's not at night, which I feel is a huge missed opportunity with no lights and whatnot.

Actually, I noticed that the description for the newly-rebranded Starlight Spectacular (no more Snoopy theming) now mentions the International Street fountain, so I wonder if we will see it incorporated into the light show.

A few water curtain projections would be cool. I would love to see something like SeaWorld's old show "Mistify".

I emailed them with that exact question a few weeks ago. Here's their response:

Kings Dominion Wrote:We will have 2 performances each morning - the first show will be immediately following the National Anthem as the front gate opens at either 10am or 11am. The second show will be performed one hour after the first show at either 11am or 12noon.

To be honest, I'm a little bummed that a show that should cost basically nothing to operate (barring the costumed Snoopy character) has such a limited schedule.

Here's a clip of the fountain show I took today. There are about four "classical" songs that Snoopy conducts, followed by a "rock" finale as seen here:


The show is quite enjoyable, but it's still a bummer that there are only two shows a day. This would be a wonderful diversion to watch in the middle of the day when all the lines are long.

I don't think any other park goes as "balls to the walls" with the Snoopy theme around the entire park as KD does. Really shows they're going for an overall family appeal.

Not entirely sure how I feel about it yet.

^I guess I should point out that the finale is the only Peanuts-themed selection in the show. The other songs are all just famous classical music, which fits right in with International Street. Plus, in past seasons the park has usually had Snoopy or some other Peanuts character near the entrance planter at opening anyway, so putting Snoopy a little more front-and-center isn't that much of a stretch.

But I totally get what you're saying, John.

Snoopy is there for the whole show? That's... Really dumb.

I do have to throw the idea out that The Peanuts are also a timeless cartoon that spans across multiple generations. My mother loves The Peanuts classics and makes it a benchmark to watch the Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas specials every time it's the appropriate holiday season.

So, in a way the Peanut/Snoopy theme appeals to a broader diversity of demographics than some might think. The park, corporate even, might be aware of this and it could justify the heavy investments being made into the brand in the forms of rides, and live entertainment.

Just some food for thought.
