Million-Dollar Light Show Illuminates the Night with over 1.2 Million LED Lights accompanied by nightly fireworks
DOSWELL, Va., June 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Snoopy, America’s favorite Beagle, will light up the nights at Kings Dominion with “Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular,” a million dollar nighttime walk-through light and sound experience featuring Snoopy and the PEANUTS™ gang. The show debuts Saturday June 18, and begins at dusk around 8:30pm.
Designed using a dazzling mixture of low energy and high efficiency LED lighting, this immersive light and sound spectacular is located around the park’s Eiffel Tower, along the Center Walkway to The Grove area, and features more than 1.2 million LED lights. The colorful lights and spotlights adorn the Eiffel Tower and surrounding trees up to 80 feet in height. The entire experience will be accented by vibrant animated and stationary light displays, vivid theatrical lighting and other cutting edge special effects, all orchestrated to a custom designed audio soundtrack.
Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular is being brought to life by world-renowned lighting designer Andrew Strain. Strain, who has created award-winning light displays in California, New York and London, says he drew inspiration from classic PEANUTS™ comic strips to create this unique cutting-edge experience he designed for Kings Dominion.
“I went with a classic design with a modern twist, using the Eiffel Tower as the exclamation point and highlight of the show,” said Strain. “It is a show for families, so I incorporated classic PEANUTS™ comic strips with a great up-beat Top 40’s soundtrack that the whole family can walk through and enjoy.”
Adding to the excitement of “Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular” is “Nights of Fire,” a nightly fireworks display. Beginning June 18 and running every night the park is open until 10pm, Kings Dominion will feature 62 amazing nights of sparkling lights and marvelous pyrotechnics!
“Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular” and “Nights of Fire” begins nightly June 18 – Aug 14 and also includes August 20, 27 and September 3-4.
“The addition of Snoopy’s Starlight Spectacular in 2011, along with the acclaimed Intimidator™ 305 roller coaster in 2010, demonstrates Kings Dominion’s continued dedication to providing world-class entertainment and thrills for the entire family,” said Pat Jones, Kings Dominion’s vice president and general manager.
Kings Dominion is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, a publicly traded partnership that is listed for trading on The New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “FUN.” In addition to Kings Dominion, Cedar Fair owns and operates ten other amusement parks, six waterparks, one indoor waterpark resort, and five hotels. Cedar Fair also operates the Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park in Gilroy, Calif. under a management contract.
