"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.

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.

"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!!!!

"Halloween At Kings Dominion"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 29, 2017 NEW
We had season passes and wanted to experience the fall, "Halloween Haunt", it was fun we went on Oct 6, 2017, the temperature was warm, so we picked a good night. The mazes were fun. Zombie High was kinda gross, the costumes were detailed and very scary. We enjoyed the view from the Eiffel Tower, we were able to see the parade going on down below. The dancers and band were excellent, when we came down from the tower were watched part of the performance. This trip to Kings Dominion was much better than the trip to see the short fireworks display on July 1st, for the July 4th weekend. I would still recommend a season pass, to get the most for your money start in the spring and go as many times as you can

"Fun Theme & Water Park!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 15, 2017
This was a really cool park that also has a water park which was refreshing in July. This is one of two major theme parks in Virginia so we had to make sure to check it off our list. We really had a nice time and it was an easy drive down from the Washington, DC area straight down Interstate 95. Perfect for a day trip and couples and families would definitely enjoy it.

"Halloween Haunt"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed November 01, 2017
Very Expensive for just 5 hours of event. It drizzled off and on a little. The Cornstalkers maze was late opening and no members were there to let anyone know anything. So as we made our way to the next maze I over heard a guest saying that the maze shuts down because it always floods. So when we came back from completing the other mazes etc. we had the Fast Pass to do this last maze, again nobody was there so we went to a worker at Customer Relations and asked about the maze and we were told it flooded and they are closed , I asked since we paid for these passes which has the maze advertised and he could see because they hole punch the ones you already have done and we had this one left. I asked if we could substitute it for another and they can just hole punch the Corn Stalkers spot and I was told no and there is nothing they can do. So if this is true that this maze is known to flood why not move it. Why keep it in the same place every year and advertise it and charge people and not be able to accommodate. Really from a customer service point of view I don't see why they couldn't honor another maze in its place since I paid for the fast pass lanyard. For myself and my kids I spent a little over $1000 on this event admission / fast passes and food / parking and they couldn't and wouldn't fulfill their part of the deal. Also the kids working the skeleton key rooms were very rude. Not worth the money. I really wanted to like this event but the rudeness and lack of customer service ruined it for me. Most likely will not return unless prices go down. Too much money to spend for 5 hrs for the event and 5 out of 6 mazes.

I have been going to King's Dominion for over 25 years now and just finished up my 2017 season there. I also noticed that the landscaping this year was very extensive and really jazzed up the park. I love rollercoasters and this place has lots of them. I highly recommend Volcano The Blast Coaster and Intimidator 305 to be your first ones if your are visiting for the first time. They have many flat rides too like Delirium and the Bad Apple for fun times as well. I also highly recommend trying the Halloween Haunt event as well. Here are my 5 tips for fun: 1. Always check the website and facebook pages to keep up on rides currently operating status as well as events happening at the park. Park hours and maps can be found here as well. 2. Try to get to the park at opening to ensure you have time to ride everything because this park has lots of fun things to do and does get very crowded.. 3. Use the fastpass option if you are just visiting for the day especially if it's during the summer on a busy day like Saturdays in June or July. Be aware that passes do sell out so try to get there early to take advantage of this. 4. Be sure to visit the height check stations so your kids can get there height checked accurately to ensure there safety for selecting rides for them to enjoy. They will give them colored wristbands based on there height as well to help you find the rides as well. 5.Try to go midweek if you can because this park does get really busy especially on Saturdays and Sundays. The Kurt's Place Channel on Youtube has videos providing more tips for having fun at Kings Dominion.
