Kings Dominion is a very well cared for older amusement park. It certainly is well maintained and pleasant to be in. However for the last couple of times I have been there the music that is played by speakers thru out the park is very loud and very hard on the ears. Even my tee girls said it is too loud in the park. Kings Dominion please turn the music down,the general atmosphere would be much better without the blaring music. The problem is you cannot get away from it believe me I tried. It is everywhere. I will not return for this reason. Also the food prices are much more expensive than Disney parks. $4.00 for a 50.cent bag of chips is just way to much.
After going to KD as a kid many years ago it was great to return with the kids and still be amazed at the great park it still is. We visited on a cold day and the park was empty which allowed us to get on rides without a wait which was fantastic for us. We even got on the big attraction roller coasters 2/3 times without any waits which as amazing. The kids loved it and the adults were happy things haven't changed to much in 15 years.
This is a must visit for your family. Fun, food, music, rides, attractions, and thrills that I guarantee will turn your stomach around! Beautifully decorated with well managed staff and signs to point you in the right direction for that next ride ! Have the time of your life and be young again!
panda express prices are rediculous. spent $76 on 4 people with 1side bowl. i believe that this is way higher than panda express in Hawaii. Hawaii prices are high and $76 on 4 people for a 1 entre....that's high-way-robbery.
