The Fast Lane Just got Faster, Intimidator 305, the tallest and fastest coaster of its type on the East Coast is back and better than ever!

“Great day of entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Kings Dominion is the Premier park on the East Coast if World Class Roller Coasters are your thing. While it is an Amusement Park rather than a "Theme Park" per se, if you like tall and fast, this is your place to be.

Only major downfall to the park is the Waterpark if you have small kids. They are apt to have more fun at a local swimming hole because they aren't allowed on any of the rides, not even the "Kiddy Slides"

“Kids love it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

My kids enjoy visiting every year. Good rides, especially the roller coasters and water park. I just wish they had more shade on really hot days.

“Fun with Grandkids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

As amusement parks go, this one is closest to our home and our grandkids love it. Our family has been frequenting this park for the past 35 years - and it has kept updated. I really appreciate all the cool new toddler rides.

“It's an amusement park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

If you like amusement parks, you'll probably like King's Dominion. It has all of the standard amusement park fare. It is not as clean as Bush Gardens though.
