  • Easy access to Highway, easy-to-use amusement park. Days before the swimming pool open parking congestion is not only the day particularly rattles in the State without a line almost every ride, as well as nice. Vehicles are clean and have different themes are movement, was. It is recommended, however, small children's rides are slightly less for the new restrictions on the website confirmed. Fireworks also goes up during the summer season.

  • I've been going to this park since the late 70's. I rode the King Kobra, which was a blast back then, and rode on the monorail through the Lion County Safari, which was nice because the cars were air conditioned and made a nice break from the hot weather. The animals were fun to watch. The cable-car sky ride was convenient for moving from one side of the park to the other, but now you have to walk that great distance. Over the years, many rides have come and gone, and the price keeps rising. It has become more of a tourist trap than a fun park. The lines are long, and if you want to get the cut in line passes, the price goes through the roof. It could turn into a couple hundred dollars once you add food, drinks, and memorabilia. As I get older, my patience for young rude employees has run out. It's still better than Six Flags in Maryland.
  • I have visited this amusement park pretty much every year for the past 15 or so years at least, usually in the fall to renew our season passes but in the spring and summer also. I have been to many of the sister parks (Paramount) and current chain parks (Cedar Fair) and Kings Dominion has certain things that I just really like. I enjoy some of the coasters, like Avalanche, which is not something you see everywhere, and Rebel Yell (I miss it backwards) and Grizzly. I also love the carousel, and the dark ride is fun. Also the log flume, the antique cars, flying scooters, etc. They have a lot of great rides and all of the coasters are fun. Of note, if you are a "larger rider" like me, most of the rides that are a bit tight have test seats outside of the queue line. The park has some shows but I have not seen any in quite some time so I cannot really comment. The water park is nice and is included in your admission, again please note weight limits (minimum and maximum ) for slides, as some are pretty light in my personal opinion. Safety first! Be sure to wear a hat and/or sunblock during the summer because there is not a lot of shade overall in most of the park. If you need shade, there are some good areas by the carousel, the Eiffel tower, and the tree lined path behind the tower. Good luck!
  • We loved our family labor day getaway that we took thus past fall 2017. The kids had a great time. It was the first time our youngest daughter got to ride the big coasters so it was a super special day for her. Overall the park prices were great especially for a recreation venue of this nature. Unlimited drinks were super reasonable and the unlimited picture pack was super cheap. Find a deal on some tickets online and get yourself to Kings Dominion the next chance you have. The rides are great fast lines great overall atmosphere.
  • Great theme park! Me and my wife got seasons passes for the park. This is the first time we have ever been to a Kings Dominion park. The park has a very good variety of rides and a good amount of rides. The park could use a better variety of shops and places to eat. Other than that it's a great amusement park experience.
  • What a fun place for kids! Highly recommend coming on a weekday and avoiding the crowds. Otherwise the lines are very long. Also recommend buying a ticket online, at Costco or at a grocery store. You can get a much better deal that way! We saved a pretty signifiant amount of money doing buying our tickets prior to the visit, which I would highly recommend for families or those on a tight budget
