Description:

Grab your friends and family and come to Kings Dominion - Virginia's...

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 Kings Dominion more times than I can count. Although the park has changed through the years, it's still a really nice park. We went on a rainy Saturday and there weren't any crowds. All but maybe 2 rides were open. Some didn't open until later so we had to back track. I really wanted to ride the... More

A lot of good rides. My 7 year old roller coaster junkie couldn't ride everything because she was under 54 inches but she had a blast on the ones she could ride. The water park wasn't open yet and some of the rides and vendors weren't open, but the waits were excellent on most of the rides with small crowds.... More

After our road trip to D.C. and New York, we ended our trip with a surprise visit to Kings Dominion. We stayed in the cabins near the park, it was awesome! Each kid had their own loft with a TV and the wife and I had some quiet time. The park was fun! We spent most of the time in... More

Went there this past weekend, drove almost 3 hours mainly for the water park that they said was open and was not. My baby girl was so disappointed. I checked before we left and they stated that it was open. We had such a boring time.

Visited the park back in 2015 and had a wonderful time. Was a little hot but that didnt stop anything. Lines were very reasonable with little waits for coasters. Definitely worth the trip!!!

This is not a Disney-style park, with everything character-themed. But it's good way to spend a day with the family. It's not cheap, but you'll have a lot of memories. All the thrill rides are excellent!

There's a lot to do here that appeals to almost all ages. (I don't suppose sr. citizens would care much for it). The park is very spread out and there's a LOT of walking. There are fun rides, but if you plan to bring a family, plan on spending a LOT of MONEY!!!!!!!! It's a VERY expensive outing. Everything from... More

Pretty busy for an opening day but the weather was perfect. The lines weren't too long with the exception of the log flume. Kyle Petty was here doing autographs so that was cool also. They don't have shoes this early in the year and they made a few additions this year: 3 rides in snoopy land which are completely for... More
