"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.

King's Dominion is a Fun amusement park with great roller coasters and other rides. The water park in August when it is 95 degrees outside was packed. Almost too packed. Very overwhelming at times. All and all alot of fun for everyone.

I was excited to visit the park for the first time and the rides were great but the food was ridiculously expensive. Busch Gardens was much better and reasonable pricing.
Tip: Good rides but the food is too expensive

"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.

I took two 7 year olds on the hottest day of the year. We still had a great time, and all the age appropriate rides were together. We then enjoyed the rest of the day in the wave pool!!!!

2 adult women on a Saturday in June. Arrived 10:30am. Departed about 8pm. Preferred parking: 100% worth the $20. The parking was SUPER CLOSE to the entrance and it was really easy to leave. Meal Plan: Worth it if you are eating 3 meals there. (Most meals are about $13 + drink.) No snacks are included though, only entrees. Refillable Cup: 100% worth it. They will refill it with water. Free on the day you buy it and $1 refills each subsequent visit. Funpix: Not at all worth it. We went on rides all day and only rode 4 with Funpix. Might be good for kids, but just not enough rides have it. Plus, no one for the park was around to take pictures (even at the entrance). Fast Lane Plus: meh. Only a couple coasters had lines anyway, and none more than 20-30 minutes. And, it's just the handicap entrance. When you use the fast lane you are ALWAYS at the back of the coaster. Rides/Coasters: The rides themselves are generally very short. Fun, but fast. Every ride has a place to leave possessions like a bin, not "safe" but no one stole anything while we were there. Two rides were down when we were there (Volcano and Backlot Stunt) but everything else was operational. Almost every ride has those molded seats, so wide hipped people don't fit comfortably. There were no "fat friendly" rides, so if you are a "larger guest," as KD puts it, you may be severely limited as to what you can "ride on." Soak City: Kinda sucked. Everything was very far away. The women's bathroom/changing room situation was dire. STROLLERS EVERYWHERE in the bathroom. Half the stalls were empty but I couldn't get to them b/c of massive strollers in the middle of the aisle. And there was nowhere better for stroller people to go. Also, be prepared to see breastfeeding. KD doesn't have anywhere for mothers to breastfeed, so they just kinda do it wherever. If you get a locker at Soak City don't go to the one by the entrance. It is hella far from any attraction. Also, there is 0 shade over the sidewalk, so walking barefoot is physically painful. Also, while we were in the wave pool they shut it down to do lifeguard training. On a Saturday. At 1:30 in the afternoon. -_- There are two wave pools and we were in the second b/c the first was too crowded. Also - 0 Fast lane water attractions at soak city and VERY long lines for the slides. I was very disappointed by Soak City. Food: You will wait longer for food than you will for rides. I wish Fast lane had worked for meals - then it would be worth it. The food was okay, but service was pretty awful. Example: We wemt to the Wayside Grill. I ordered a corndog. 10 minutes later some other guest tells me the corn dog maker is have issues. I ask the cashier how much longer and if I can get something else. The guy walks away. About 10 minutes later my friend is done eating and I'm standing there waiting to know if I will get food today. I basically had to accost someone to get a different entree. It was really frustrating. The Hippo place in Safariville was pretty great, and the only way to get greens on the meal plan. It's a burger place a-la-Roy-Rogers where you get to add your own toppings. I got a chicken sandwich thing and the piece of chicken was so small I almost felt bad for eating the cute little thing. However, I had access to unlimited lettuce, tomato, & pickle, which made for a pretty decent chicken wrap once I wrapped my chicken in the lettuce. The Hippo place was also one of the few places to eat that had adequate indoor seating. It is also close to the Anaconda, Volcano, Flight of Fear and Intimidator. 5 out of 5 would eat a DIY chicken wrap there again. I mean, it's no surprise that there aren't a lot of healthy options at a theme park, but I only saw one place with salad and one place with fruit. If you're trying to not eat absolute garbage, be prepared to pay through the nose for a sad little side salad. Dinosaurs Alive: worth exactly $5. It is a silly little walk through some dilapidated animatronics dinosaurs. If you grew up with Jurassic Park it is an awesome bit of nostalgia. Nothing is earth shattering, but some of it was pretty cool. Plus, it's all in the shade and there are benches. It was a really nice activity for high-noon when the sun was super intense. We just sat for a little while and looked at some raptors getting sucked into a sandpit. Some of the dinos were visibly falling apart, and there was a lot of bird poop on them, but both of us agreed that it was worth exactly $5. Music. There was SO MUCH LOUD MUSIC. In the morning and afternoon it wasn't so bad, but by evening there were bands and things pumping out crazy loud music. And because were getting food, we heard their set three times. Twice in line and once while eating. Very annoying. Very loud. And in general there are a lot of different songs going on all at once as you walk by various areas. All in all, not bad. We had a nice day, and this was our first visit, so we know what to do differently next time.

I had such a fun time at Kings Dominion! The lines were short, the service was nice, & the park is very clean & well taken care of. I loved all the roller coasters & the water park as well! We had a blast! The food & drinks are very pricey but that's to be expected. Since no outside drinks or food are allowed in the park. Overall I would recommend & will definitely return again! Can't wait to come back!

Been to VA several times but never tried Kings Dominion. So this time my friend took me to have some fun and do something different. Park very clean, different attractions for all ages, water park also clean and fun. My friend has the season package which it was very convenient. If you are in the area and can come here to have some fun, completely recommend it.
