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.

I've been to many amusement parks and this one is my favorite. I like the way the park is set up with different themes throughout. The lines were not very long the day I went. Overall I would go back if I was in the area.

We went to kings dominion about 4 months ago and it was great! They have a variety of rides so there's something for everyone in the family. But think about it first before you go on the Intimidator 305. Make sure you go when it's not too hot because when the temperatures are high, due to the 305ft hill, there are possibilities of getting knocked out. Another roller coaster you might want to skip is the anaconda. We went on it first and our heads hurt for the rest of the day! In general the rides were great and it kept everyone busy doing something. TIP: Go to the games when most people are away from them, you can get free small prizes (i.e. flags, small stuffed animals). You might think they're pointless but your kids will take anything that looks interesting! Food is a little over-average, you can get quality barbecue by the roller coaster you stand up on (it's green and blue). Overall, the trip was fun and we plan to visit again!

Very nice, friendly, family amusement park. Great for all ages in the family. Kid zone and water zone are my family's favorites!

Went to the fright fest on a Sunday night. Was there last year and for some reason last year seemed better. This was still enjoyable and because the weather wasn't great, the rides were quick on/off so that was a plus. The scary stuff is a lot of fun. Lots of laughs.
