"Horrible Experience"
October, 2016
We got to the park at 11 a.m. just 30 minutes after the park opened and we waited in line for our first roller coaster 45 minutes just to get to be told the coaster was down for an unknown amount of time. We waited in line for 2 hours and 24 minutes for the next coaster to once again be told that the ride was down. We waited for an hour for another coaster which also broke down and last we got in line for another and had no wait because people were leaving because the ride was broke down. Last we got in line for the Intimidator and waited 40 minutes before that ride broke down as well. During the haunted houses they had so many people walking through at the same time that it ruined anything that may have been remotely scary. They had a few other haunts that you needed to pay extra to go in. We purchase one drink and an ice cream cone for $16.46 which was ridiculous. The average wait time for females to use the restroom was 15-20 minutes, which again is crazy. To end the night at midnight we had to wait just to get out of the parking lot for 11/2 hours. I have been to several amusement parks at peak travel times and never had such a terrible experience. I can guarantee that we will never go to this park again. Busch Gardens if by far the better park.

Tip: Long wait for everything and rides were constantly broke down. Plan to spend a lot of time and money for nothing.

"Roller Day"
August, 2016
When my friends ask me if I wanted to go to kings dominion I said noooo the roller coasters don't even work there and they said but that was like 3 years ago. Let's try again I really didn't want to go but they insisted and I went, what a disappointment, the first thing I checked was if the volcano roller coaster was working since is my favorite one. Well that ruined my trip since I went few years back and the same problem always with the volcano the tomb rider the drop zone and the intimidator it is always two of those that are out service. Besides that the food is terrible and to expensive I was charge 17.00 dollars for a order of fries three pieces of chicken fingers and a medium soda. Wow and it was cold and stale.
Over all bad experience I don't understand why the park is in such a bad condition I remember in the 90's it was really nice and clean, but over the years is deteriorating to a level that is not even fun to plan a trip there. This park is the one in Boswell Virginia by the way.

Tip: I think people should know if the conditions, because the main thing people go there is to enjoy the rides.

TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed October 17, 2017 NEW
Previously my family and I went to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg but since King's Dominion is closer to home we decided to get the 2018 season passes, which included one free admission in 2017. We found out it doesn't include parking on that day but that is fine, we really wanted to go because my son is turning 6 in December and they allow you to redeem a pre-school pass for the entire season just as long as when you do redeem, your child is 5 or younger. So that saved us money on his ticket. As for the park, it just doesn't compare to Busch Gardens. Maybe us going in October is the reason but here are my reasons why King's Dominion just isn't great. 1. Bathrooms – They were not that clean. It was like going into a gas station bathroom. Vents had a thick layer of dust, floor looked dirty and the toilets were not clean. At BG the bathroom were very nice. 2. Employees – Again this could be due to the season. I can’t say the employees are BG were overly great, but the employees at KD just didn’t care. They were not friendly, didn’t seem to really care about safety and were just not engaged with the kids. At BG they would say something like “Have fun on the Grover roller coaster, see you when it’s over”. Here they would say “clear” then start the ride. I have to give props to the older gentleman running the train, he was more engaged and friendly. 3. Ride quality – I have to say though, the amount of rides in Planet Snoopy far exceeded the amount in the Sesame Street land at BG. Although there were more, the quality of the rides were not as great. The age of the rides really showed and it didn’t seem that any employee cleaned the rides before the start of the day. It had rained the day before so it would have been nice for them to clean the seats and clear the leaves inside the rides. Also, several rides were not open when the part opened at 10:30am. 4. Parking – Now although it would have been nice to have free parking for my free day in 2017 I can’t complain too much about this, but since I get free parking with a season pass, it would seem the one day in 2017 could have free parking also. Coming up to KD, there is no comparison to BG. BG has this grand entrance with many ticket booths, KD has a couple, the road is rough, the road lines are almost non-existent and it is just one big parking lot. Not that this was a problem but the experience at BG is much nicer when it comes to parking. Overall, if I had to choose between King’s Dominion and Busch Gardens I would choose BG every day. BG is kept up much better (especially bathrooms), the experience is better, and the workers are better. With the price being similar, I expected more from KD. I just hope the summer next year is better.

Our family took a trip to KD over the weekend. Over all it was a really fun experience, but I would like to share the good the bad and the inconsistent. The coasters were awesome!!! Volcano, Dominator, Intimidator, Anaconda were my favorites. I do suggest you buy the souvenir cup the free refills all day are completely worth it. The meal deal where you can eat every 90 minutes totally worth it too. The food is to be desired but what do you expect from a theme park. The workers there are also to be desired, no one really went out of their way to help and if you needed anything the ones I encountered were not so happy to help you. At night the park turns into an awesome haunt adventure. The decorations are really good. Their are "monsters" everywhere and most really got into character and did an excellent job. Now if you want to drink while you are there , here is where the inconsistency comes in. You will spend $10 a beer and you will wait for it, you also can only get one beer per ID card. There was only one person in the beer stands that could look at your ID and get you a beer, they were not qualified to serve alcohol, they were very slow and didn't even know that had red wine as an option even after it was pointed to them, nor could they use a bottle top opener they had a hard time to say the least. If you ordered beer in a restaurant some would tell you they had to open it for you before you could leave and some would not. Standing in line waiting for the houses can take quit a while, the first night we were there we could stand in line and drink with no problems, you just could not go into the houses with it which is totally understandable. The second night some lines allowed it and then some told you no you cant stand in line with it, which was very frustrating. Also with the haunt houses the monsters were inconsistent one night there would be a lot of monsters in one house and the next night just a few in the same house. Over all though it was fun just wished they were all on the same page

"Nice park"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

This was part of my Labor Day weekend trip which also included Busch Gardens Williamsburg (phenomenal park, see my review) and a too short visit to Colonial Williamsburg. It was Day three of my trip (Saturday), and I woke up at 8 am to make the trip up to Doswell to visit Kings Dominion. I had heard great things about Intimidator 305 Coaster, and being a Cedar Fair Platinum Pass holder, decided it would be worth the 1 hour 15 minute trip from Williamsburg. I arrived at the park at 9:30; just in time for the early entry for pass holders; and was greeted with an empty park. The forecast of rain, combined with the steady drizzle at the start of the day, surely chased many people off. I rode Volcano (had the ride to myself) and it was the highlight of my trip. A sensational launched, invert coaster. After the ride; they sent me out again, since there weren't ANY people in the queue. Even with the rain hitting my face like tiny shards of glass, those two rides were phenomenal, and I couldn't help but laugh at the joy the ride was. From there I went next door to Intimidator 305. Again an empty queue, so I chose front seat. Big mistake! The rain pelted me so hard, I had to keep my head down and eyes closed the whole ride. A very painful experience. Wanting to experience the ride the right way, I chose to reride, but this time moved back a few rows, using the forward seats as a sort of shield. Big difference, as I no longer had to deal with the rain shards, the ride was quite enjoyable, though nothing close to what I experienced on Volcano. It was 9:50, and the general public would be entering the park soon; so I skipped over to Anaconda, and had a nice ride. Surprised that no one had entered the park, I then rode Rebel Yell, and both sides of this wooden coaster were just awful rough. Next I jumped on Grizzly, which was rather disappointing, as it looked like a nice woodie at first glance. No thrilling hills, no rolls like you find on RMC coasters. Disappointed. Finally saw another patron at 10:30. They, like I, were prepared for the rain and were wearing rain gear. And also like I; have a weird rationale that says "I'd be great to try out their log flume". While not the sensible thing to do on a wet, overcast, slightly chilly day, I opted to soak myself on this classic water ride. It was a cheerfully long, relaxing ride, and I didn't get too soaked, owing mostly to the abundance of water that had overfilled the troughs. I quickly made my way to the front of the park and rode Dominator twice, as well as Avalanche (a rare toboggan coaster). Having ridden everything I cared to, I was out of the near empty park by 12:30. Really enjoyable rides, sort of a "half version" of Kings Island (Ohio). I've heard this park gets packed, so I would definitely recommend visiting on a day calling for light rains, as it seemed to chase the crowds away for me.

We go every year with my company. Our family and friends always enjoy our day in the park. Plenty of thrill rides, rides for kids, and some rides in the middle. Also a large water park, and good shows. Food is typical park food (average and overpriced). Park doesn't feel too crowded, and is laid out nicely.
