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.

“Very Long Lines.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

My Husband and I decided to go to the Haunt due to both liking Halloween. We decided to hit the main rides during the day, however we could not get on any of the major roller coasters due to the long long lines. There was even insane lines to get food. We were only able to get on three rides between the hours of 2pm and 7pm. When 7pm came we wanted to check out all the Haunt attractions and they even had long lines. The Haunt attractions weren't that enjoyable due to the massive amount people they let in at once. We then decided to try the major coasters again and still we would have spent our entire night waiting in one line. So we decided not to wait. I really do not see us returning.

“The visit was Well Worth It.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

The price for admission is expensive but once you and our family are walking around, you tend to forget what is going on and the hole in your wallet. Hunt down discount tickets...

“Lines, lines and nothing but long lines”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

So i love roller coasters, absolutely love them. We decided to go with a group of friends for some rides. They are famous for the intimidator roller coaster that goes up to 98 miles per hour, well guess what... the ride was broken. Everywhere we went there was a 1.5-2 hour ride. We figured we would have better luck in the water park... WRONG, there are lines for lockers (which are 24 bucks extra by the way) and they got sold out before our turn came. There were lines to buy food, lines to get in the line. From 10am to 7pm I was on 3 rides total...Never again.

“Okay for the day should have brought a swim suit.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Little late for my review but made it up finally after some years and had a okay experience. Was quite hot for the day and did not even think of bringing a swim suit. The Number 3 rollercoaster was down for the day we were up so I cannot comment on that. We rode all the rides and did not have to wait that long. Would recommend this park to anyone looking for a good time.

“Intimidator 305”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Great park, the Intimidator was awesome. Lots of fun for anyone especially rollercoaster fans. Food choices were a bit lacking but we found a BBQ place that was very good.
