They're Back! 'Singing Mushrooms' To Return To Kings Dominion

Stocks in this article: FUN

DOSWELL, Va., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kings Dominion is excited to announce the iconic 'Singing Mushrooms' will make their grand return in the Spring of 2014 as part of the kick-off to the park's 40 th Celebration. This fan-favorite that families came to know and love, will feature the original four colorful mushrooms along with the infamous frog, all singing to their favorite barbershop songs.

"When Kings Dominion announced its 40 th Celebration earlier this fall, the response was overwhelming that our guests wanted to see the popular Singing Mushrooms brought back," said Kings Dominion's Vice President and General Manager Pat Jones. "As an employee and fan of Kings Dominion since the 70's, I am excited to see one of my personal favorites return to the park for a new generation of guests to enjoy."

Garner Holt Productions, Inc. (GHP) from San Bernardino, California was chosen to assist in the refabrication of the Singing Mushrooms. GHP is the world's largest designer and manufacturer of animatronics for theme parks, museums, dining and retail locations. The company has built nearly 4,000 animatronic figures, hundreds of animated props and show action systems. Most recently, they worked on a restoration of the Timber Mountain Log Ride at Kings Dominion's sister park, Knott's Berry Farm in California.

GHP and Kings Dominion are working together to maintain the rich history of the Singing Mushrooms, but also add 21 st century animatronic technology to it. The new Singing Mushrooms will have more character to the figures with subtle additional functions not seen in the original animatronics. The Singing Mushrooms will be located in the newly re-themed Candy Apple Grove section of the park.

Kings Dominion's 40 th Celebration will begin when the park opens for its 40 th season on Saturday, April 5, 2014. You can reminisce during the off-season by visiting www.kingsdominion.com/celebration. The park's 40 th Celebration website includes historical facts, photos and videos and the latest announcements regarding this exciting celebration.

Kings Dominion is also currently offering a limited time special. Purchase tickets at www.kingsdominion.com/tickets for just $40. Tickets are valid for any one day visit through Memorial Day 2014.
