"Three friends enjoy roller coasters"
September, 2018 NEW
Three of us entered at 10am on a Saturday, rode roller coasters, went to the water park, and left at about 6pm. We loved how Kings Dominion has picnic pavillions in the middle of the parking lot so folks can leave food in their car and then have lunch there instead of buying theme park food if they wish. Perhaps because of light rain in the forecast, lines were amazingly short and we had a blast. The rides did close at about 5pm when rain and lightning became severe and the park seems to not have very much to do indoors. Hopefully they rectify this in the future. We decided to go home instead of waiting it out but still had a wonderful day overall.

"Nice for little kids"
September, 2018 NEW
The kiddie area was nice and there were no lines at all to ride the rides. The staff was really frienly. My 6 and 8 year olds absolutely loved it. The water park was a little dirty (the water) and didn't smell enough like chlorine and smelled too much like - dirty. The bathrooms seemed like from a country that I never want to visit (very dirty and how many underwear stickers do we need on the walls?) I don't think we will go back for a while, but my girls thought it was, "The best day of my life!!!!!" so I will give it 3 stars.

Tip: Wear water shoes if you visit the water park. Chick fil A will be closed on Sunday. The food is super overpriced except for Chick fil A. The funnel cake is good :)

"Great deal"
September, 2018 NEW
I used reserve Williamsburg to purchase tickets for kings dominion and it was a great deal! The tickets were cheaper than on the kings dominion website so that is a huge plus. The tickets were sent to my email and you just show them as you walk in like any other ticket. I will definitely be using them again!

"Great thrill rides "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 17, 2018 NEW
Great park and a fab day out. Some great thrill rides. We were lucky that there weren’t many long queues on our visit. However the water park was very crowded. The lockers were expensive and there didn’t seem to be enough available for everyone in our party. In the end one stayed on the sun beds. An hour later and one slide later, we gave up and went back to the main park. Drinks were overpriced but Park is clean and safe.

"Intense Rides, Mind blowing"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 03, 2018 NEW
Visit date: 31 August 2018d, the weather was already stating 50% chance of rain but I decided to make a command decision for my wife and I that we are just going to go. In my lessons learned, it's not always a bad decision going on a day when the weather states it has a 50% or lower and we've made that same decision when we wanted to go to the competition theme parks it was turned out successfully. And it was, hardly any big crowds or long waits. We rode rides twice and in some cases 3+ times, A win-win. Ok, so I read some prior reviews that gave Kings D a bad rap and I'm sure if I had gone on a day when most of the thrill seeking rides were closed this review would be going in a different direction. So, for our experience, I am going to say it was Freak'n AWESOME. The few discrepancies i have are these, 1st: The key item that I would say about this theme park, and this goes for many and all other theme/amusement parks (because the follow the same suite), are the prices of food and drinks. I can only think that Voldemort must have casted the RIDDIKULUS spell on those prices because they are F...-ing outrages. Panda Express 1 item bowl was $14+ dollars, No Way. Didn't do it. Only saving grace for use was they were having dollar days at the park and I spent $9 vice $28 for food and drinks. Bought 3 dogs, 2 chips for $5 and $4 dollars for 1 water. I know Ima cheap butt but WHATEVA. 2: Volcano's Blast was closed, not sure why but the entire day it was closed but sometimes that is to be expected. I'd rather not ride a ride that was not cleared for safe travels then ride at all. 3: Parking cost: Recommend buy on line, the lot is not that big so $17 (on-line) vice the $20 (at the park window) is better. If you want to spend $20 Bones (You Big Spender) then recommend to still buy on-line. Preferred parking is $20 bucks on-line, that's what we did. Over-all the roller coasters were AWSOME, I almost passed out from the Intimidator every time i rode it (3x). I was even yelling to my wife and I quote, "I'm think I'm about to pass out while laughing. Ridiculous. Loved it, I hope this helps and enjoy it.

"Labor Day Weekend "
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 03, 2018 NEW
We bought a two day pass for KD on Labor day weekend. It took the two days for us to get all the rides in but partly because Saturday it started storming around 2pm. This park is nicely landscaped and themed; and, is easily navigated with a park map. I would recommend using the park map and knowing where the rides are because signage in the park is limited. Some of the ride entrances are hidden. The rides: KD has some great roller coasters. Twisted Timbers is easily the best RMC we've ridden. Intimadator 305 is the only coaster I have ever came close to "greying out" on. Five of the seven peopel in our group said the same thing. Flight of fear is one of my favorite launch coasters. The only coaster I would skip is Grizzly. It is easily the worst woody I've been on! The longest we waited in line was one hour for Twisted Timbers. The rest of the lines were thirty minutes or less. Also, there are many unusual flat rides like Crypt and Delirium if you have the stomach for them. I sat them out and let the teens ride. The food: I can't give much comment on the food since they were having dollar days. We ate dollar hot dogs, pizza, and fries! The only other food we had was Panda Express and it wasn't terrible but I wouldn't return. We did just get two plates and split them they are big portions. I do wish these parks would stop robbing people for drinks! $4 + for a 20oz is ridiculous. The shows: The only show we saw was Origins. I would highly recommend. It was alot of fun. With a show of this quality it left me wanting more shows! KD, I love the rides but more of these high quality shows would be great.

"Terrible "Theme" park"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed August 30, 2018 NEW
I Will not ever visit this theme park again. The mechanical rides were outdated and felt more like a county fair. The water park area had a lot of delays due to water not being clean. The staff was not permanent but kids on summer vacation so they didn't really seem to care or give good service. I had no photos of me on any rides because of poor workmanship at the front gate. Save your time and money go to bush gardens or six flags.
