Kings Dominion is a 400-acre theme park that features 60 rides, shows and attractions, as well as a 20-acre water park. Thrill seekers can enjoy hair-raising rides like WindSeeker and Intimidator 305; water lovers can spend time making a splash with slides, rushing rivers and a 650,000-gallon wave pool in Soak City; and families with little ones can share memories on the Grand Carousel.

I come here nearly every year. I am close to Six Flags in Upper Marlboro - that is a DUMP. I am close to Hershey - that place is way overcrowded. Kings Dominion is awesome. If you come during the week, lines are not bad at all. They have a lazy river which I love. The roller coasters are awesome too and run fine! They get really decked out for Halloween and that is tons of fun as well. Avoid Sweet Frog because their prices are ridiculous. I usually eat at Chick Fil A and enjoy that much more than the regular food. The shows are alright, nothing spectacular. But overall, great rides and awesome water park! Oh, and they always have discounts online!
My children's school choir participated in a music competition last Saturday at KD. Otherwise we would not have gone that day due to the rain. Luckily, the rain wasn't severe--mostly spitting. All the rides were open, and the kids had a blast. If I were to go again when it was raining, I might be inclined to carry a towel to dry off the seats of the rides. Most of our crew ate lunch at Chick-Fil-A. The park has a bunch of chain food options, including Auntie Anne's. A full list of restaurants can be found on the back of the map and tells you what menu items are available at each of the park's various restaurants. Park-run restaurants charge around $15 for a "meal" of sandwich, fries and a drink. ChickFilA prices seemed in line with our local one--a bit cheaper by comparison. Two of the students in our group did not like roller coasters (plenty to choose from at the park), but were happy riding the bumper cars, old-timey cars, swings, carousel, log flume and the like. Go carts are apparently an extra charge. Lots of skill and arcade games are also available for exorbitant prices. Season passes are worth purchasing if you only go to the park twice during the year. They offer you to opportunity to upgrade to a season pass as you leave the park, with the cost of your day ticket applied to the cost. Military discount available on season pass.

Things are more expensive but overall it has been fun going back to Kings Dominion. I remember the good ole days with King Cobra, etc.... but adding water park makes it nice. Can't wait til summer time.
The crowd was low as it was a cool day with high possibility of rain. We lucked out though. Lines were low and most progressed quickly. The water park was not yet open. Park was clean. Food prices very high. They do allow picnics with re entry. Would highly suggest doing that if you can. King's Dominion makes a nice day trip.
