I love the option of an All-In-One theme park. We're able to ride the attractions during the day and play at the waterpark in the evenings for one price. They have plenty of rides for small children, the adventure type, and the conservative. The entrance price is a really good deal for the amount of fun you're going to have. You can sometimes find cheaper rates on Groupon or NCSECU banking centers. You can definitely get a good exercise during your stay as much walking you have to do to see the entire park.
Went for a work party -- they rented the entire theme park so I'm not sure I can attest to the park on a regular day. Either way, the park was probably one of the cleanest I've seen, the longest line was about 1.5 hours, and the staff seemed to be pretty friendly. Had a funnel cake from the stand just outside the waterpark -- I think I could have spent my money in better ways -- and I'd certainly skip that stand next time. The photos they take of you in the beginning are ridiculously overpriced (starting at $20 for just one print) but the photos after the rides seemed reasonable ($10 for one print). I had a blast and would certainly return.
I grew up in VA so this park was a staple for me. We took our teenagers there for the first time and they fell in love! Lol They want to go to Va , not to visit their grandmother, but to go to Kings Dominion! Lol It's still as fun as it was when was growing up!😁
It rained off and on but that didn't stop the show. It was a litte chilly which caused some of the rides to shut down due to the wind factor, but the lines were not half as long. At night the have the zombies, shows, and my favorite the haunted maze houses and its worth going to at night!!!!!
