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.

Kings Dominion, is my all time favorite Thrill Quencher! A great amusement park for the entire family! Something to do for everyone, well maybe not the elderly, but in the summer months, you can definitely have the best of both worlds, as the amusement park has a water park built inside the park! That hidden element is definitely trip worthy! I would suggest, to go over two days, enjoy one for the rides and the other for the water! You'll definitely want to return, if you're fan of roller coasters then Kings Dominion is a Must 4 U!
The staff here are amazing. SO kind and really care about your time here. The rides were amazing and the food was not horrible. The world needs more Kings Dominions in them. Planet snoopy was so great for the kids while my teens ran around and enjoyed the rest of the park. Security was present and I felt safe. Anytime I would look at a map, a staff member would stop and ask if we needed help. The shows were fun and the merchandise was great. I will be returning again, wanting to enjoy everything that this amazing park has to offer.
This was such an awesome day spent at the amusement park all in all. Cons: the food was way overpriced. From paying 9.99 for a cup of beer, to 7.00 for a plate of fries, to 4.00 for a drink at the vending machine. They really take advantage of the customers that way, which I do not like. One ride (volcano) had a service issue and we waited in line for almost 3 hours, and the anaconda was closed for awhile due to the same thing. Pros: the wait in lines and cost of tickets is definitely worth it for the thrill and adrenaline rush you get from the rides. The intimidator was freaking awesome! As well as all the others. The haunt mazes were all mostly scary. The lockdown was one that really freaked me. Some people stood so still like manikins and then they'd jump at you. The zombie high was not as scary because they were more slow moving and just kinda shuffling around.

Went October 31, 2015 to Kings Dominion for the Halloween Haunt, Needless to say, the place was packed! The lines were very long for most of the rides and attractions. Other than that, Kings Dominion did a very god job for the Halloween season. Waited over an hour for one ride and finally got of line because was told it could take another hour wait. Monsters sneaking up behind you, the fog and the decorations were very well done. All in all, it was fun. The drummers for "blood drums" put on a good show and were talented.
