"Worst theme park I have ever been to"
July, 2018 NEW
I took my twin grandsons for their 16th birthday. The rides are old and run down. Two of the main rides were not working. There are several things in the park you have to pay extra for. The only shows were bands that you had to stand in a walk way to see. They do have a theatre but it was not open. I was really disappointed. I was glad I at least saved $10.00 a ticket buying through reserve williamsburg.

"Great service Great Day!"
July, 2018 NEW
I purchased my ticket through Reserve Williamsburg for Kings Dominion the night before I was planning to go, and they processed everything by the morning. I had my ticket in my email and I did not even have to print it out. This was my first time going to Kings Dominion and I had a great time. It was not crowded and the area was very clean.

The park has some great rollercoasters. To bad the Vulcano are still out of order. The food is great for an amusement park- and would highly recommend the all day dining. On weekdays I would not recommend any fast passes as it is few long lines. But on site if needed.

"A fun time, but cabanas need a bit of rethinking"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 11, 2018 NEW
What I like best about this park is that the water park is included AND attached. The kids can ride until they need to cool off, and then when they are water logged they can go back to the rides. It's a nice day. A note about the cabanas. The attendants are wonderful. Friendly, helpful, and surprisingly cheerful given the terrible heat of the day. The cabanas are relatively nice, but not everything I had hoped to be a relief from the weather. At other water parks, the fans hang from the ceiling. These cabanas have towers on top of the refrigerator, which have to be taken down to feel the air move. It oscillates but doesn't really do more than one person any good at a time. A ceiling fan would be much better. The other issue is that the cabana has an apex with no vents. So all of the heat gets trapped in the cabana. Because three sides of the cabana are completely enclosed, you do not get ANY breeze or air flow. There is a very small mesh rectangle near the top of the back, and half of it is up against the fence behind the back wall. Even still, it does not allow for any air circulation. Even though we were shaded from the intense sun, it was actually cooler outside of the cabana than in it. If only they would vent the cabanas, I think they would be GREAT! But as they are, you are shaded from the beating sun, but the trade off is sitting in an oven. The food at the park is not great. Pizza is your best bet. The all day meal plan is a good idea, even if you only get it for half of your party size. The ice cream at the place next to Subway is very sweet, and my kid's favorite in the park.

"Excellent visit"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 11, 2018 NEW
This park is one of my favorite parks to visit, mainly because if you go during the week, you can get lots of rides and re-rides on the coasters if there are no lines. A friend and I was at the park in June. The grounds were fairly clean. Most employees were friendly and efficient, but not all. Most of the rides were in operation; the new coaster kept breaking down, so we did not get a chance to experience that. Food prices are high, especially for the quality, but that is going to be the same at most amusement parks. Overall, a very good day.

"great summer weekday visit late june"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 11, 2018 NEW
We got really lucky with a slow Tuesday visit in late June. Temps and crowds were really low, not typical per park staff. It had been 20+ years since I had visited and expected things to look a little worn down. Not the case. With the exception of the Eiffel Tower everything was in great shape. I'm not really a heights person, but the tower has some rusty paint and the viewing deck felt a little uneven to me. Totally sturdy I'm sure, my husband is a structural engineer and constantly tells me that rust is not a bad thing, BUT it still has the look of not fully maintained. The rest of the park was beautifully landscaped and clean. I didn't remember a lot of shaded areas from the last time I was there, but if we'd had a sunny, hot day, there would have been some nice escapes. There are a few older rides from back in the day, those are showing wear as expected, but there's also a fun nostalgia to it. That doesn't bother me. The new rides are fast and modern. Twisted Timbers (new & super fun !!!) and Intimidator were the crowd favorites. We did buy an upgrade ticket ahead of time that allowed the kids to ride "fast lane" as much as they wanted. They only issue a certain number each day so we pre-bought. I don't think we really needed it. Lines were really short with the exception of first row on Intimidator. We ate lunch at Chick-Fil-A, long line as to be expected, but we hit it right at lunch time and during a brief drizzle. If you plan any dining a little off normal hours I think lines would be much shorter. Decided to leave the park for dinner (it was my son's birthday) and found a great local spot (thanks TripAdvisor) called Ironhorse. It wound up being a nice break from walking around the park. It was only a few minutes away and then we returned to ride in the dark. I've been really impressed with the upkeep of the local amusement parks that we've just started to return to since our kids are old enough to ride the big coasters. Kings Dominion is included. Look forward to visiting again.
