Owner description: Grab your friends and family and come to Kings Dominion - Virginia's ultimate 400-acre destination for summertime fun! With more than 60 rides, shows and attractions including the largest coaster collection on the East Coast, Planet Snoopy, our Peanut's themed children's area and WaterWorks, a 20-acre water playground which is included in your park admission. Kings Dominion is Virginia's only destination offering two parks for the price of one. We have everything you need for creating lifelong memories. Our 40th Celebration starts in 2014 and offers magnificent experiences you won't find anywhere else! While it's our birthday, this celebration is all about you! We've taken all of the thrills, chills, smiles and dazzling moments of our history and crafted them into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Don't miss it! To end the day, stay for Dominion at Dusk - a KD40 Nighttime Celebration! Start off with the vibrant lights and sounds of Snoopy's Starlight Spectacular and the stunning water and lights display of our fully refurbished International Street Fountain. The party really gets going as the Grande Bandstand and the midways of International Street come to life with our all-new block party, Ignite the Night! featuring an impressive cast singing some of your favorite hits! And the party isn't complete without a magnificent display of fireworks lighting up the nighttime skies above the park. Open daily during the summer; weekends in the spring and fall.

There ots of rides. Shocwave, a stand-up roller coaster, was really fun. It is like a beginners stand up roller coaster. The Flight of Fear is also fun.

Kings dominion is your typical amusement park. Expensive day out. Funnel Cake and a lemonade was almost $15. Please, don't waste your time on their Dinosaurs Alive exhibit. They charge you $5 per person (in my case, there were 8 of us, so $40). You walk through a patch and look at big plastic dinosaurs. Even my 4 year old grandson was bored.

What a fun amusement park. It has rides for everyone's taste. It was clean and kept up nicely. The only complaint is having to pay $4 for a bottle of water. That's just plain ridiculous. Other than that, it's a great place to visit.

Many awesome roller coasters. Great rides for kids as well. Park is clean and well kept. Expensive admission price of $59.99. I could not buy online since I was traveling. Food inside the park is about double what is normal. I wish that parks would not do this. It is blatant exploitation since you are in their facility. Souvenirs were priced about the same.

Intimidator, Berserker, Volcano, and Fear are all awesome coasters. Drop and new swing are awesome too.

Kings dominion is a great spot for family and friends. It gives you and the rest time to not only have fun but time to share with loved ones and enjoy the view. Those that have been will as well say that it is a cherishable moment and good for all the fun and games you want to endore. Great place to adventure during the summer time for adults and children.
