Kings Dominion theme park in Virginia, US, will launch a 4D roller coaster in 2022, as part of an entirely new area at the popular attraction.

The park is currently redeveloping and upgrading its existing Safari Village area, which will open in 2022 as the renamed Jungle X-Pedition.

At the heart of the new area, which will be designed as an exotic archeological dig site and research facility, will be the new coaster, called Tumbili.

Tumbili is described as a 4D spin coaster and takes its name from the Swahili word for "monkey".

The ride will reach speeds of up to 34mph on a 770ft track and has a max height of 112ft.

According to Kings Dominion, the 55-second long ride will have riders "tumbling and spinning head over heels – like monkeys scampering high in the rainforest tree canopy".

The storyline for the Jungle X-Pedition is based on a fictional explorer, Professor Gerald Winston, who on his travels discovered ancient ruins of temples built by humans to worship animal spirits.

In addition to Tumbili, the area will include a signature restaurant and an immersive retail unit.

The new area is set to open in early 2022.
