"Great family park"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed July 16, 2019 NEW
Our family (6 adults & 2 kids) really had a great time at the park. The roller coasters were a big draw for several in our group, but even if coasters weren't your thing, there are plenty of other rides to enjoy. The park was clean, the staff was friendly and there were many places to sit and rest in the shade when the heat got to be too much. My only concern was that when the sun went down, there were areas of the park that were pretty dark. More lighting in the main walkway would have been helpful. Other than the fact that a couple of the rides were down while we were there, the overall visit was enjoyable.

"A Classic"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Outside of Disneyworld, this is the best amusement park in the US (yes, even beating out Disneyland). I am not sure what more I can write about it that has not already been written. Know that you will be there with thousands of people, there is only one main road in and out (The Causeway) which backs up fairly frequently (but I am old enough to remember as a kid, taking over an hour to get from the edge of to to parked), and it is staffed mainly by college students and high-schoolers. That said, awesome rides, lots of food options, many places to take a rest if you get too warm, lots of shade, and rides for all ages and thrill-levels.

"Park was fun but staff HORRIBLE!"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5

We had a blast at the park. We did have to wait on a few of the rides, but that is to be expected. Where we had an issue was with every single snack place. We purchased bracelets to allow unlimited drinks, etc. We felt so unappreciated there. It wasn’t just us, but everyone that was near us in line all got the same miserable treatment. The employees were all just extremely rude and horrible customer service. I have never experienced an entire organization who had horrible employee interaction, EVER. I’ve been to several various parks and never once experienced this type of customer service. We can’t be the only ones who have had this type of issue. Keep it up and word of mouth will give this place a horrible reputation.

"A great place with great coasters"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

I've read the other reviews. They range from great to terrible and most (if not all) of the terrible reviews are the reviewer's fault and does not represent what I saw and did. First, it is pricey ($73 per at the gate). Do your homework. It was $50 per online which I bought right near the gate and then scanned and entered. I'm not a big fan of FAST PASS when I have to buy it. It is very pricey.......even by Universal Studio pricing. It's $85 per more for adding most rides and an additional $25 (total $110 per) to add the 6 big coasters. I'll always take my chances with lines. When all was said and done, I only waited once for 1 hour and once for 30 minutes. The other rides were 10 minutes or less (even on the big coasters). Yes, people were using the line, but it was/is a waste of money. This is nothing but a money grab and should be stopped. However, my rating is not about the things where I caused myself anguish (dropping a $50 bill from the skyride) or someone else being idiotic. It's about the rides themselves and the fun and joy I had riding them. Did I mention, my son and I went on my birthday. I turned 60 and it was fun to relive the park where I took my son many years ago. The coasters are a lot wilder than I remember, but I (no, WE) LOVED IT. We recommend THE GATEKEEPER, the RAPTOR and the MAVERICK as our top 3 (not in that order). And the others where just as good. Go.......enjoy.......have fun....... WE DID!!!!

So me (52yr ) and daughter (10yr 54" ) took a trip to ride rollercoasters. I am familiar with Kings Dominion, Virginia. Tickets, I stayed at the offsite property of cedar to take advantage of the many discounts. The 1 hour early access is a MUST DO you get great parking and able to ride at least 2 of the "attraction" coasters before the crowd swells. I did visit on a thursday, no crowd no lines! 17 coaster rides!! Of course this is a park so everything is OVERPRICED. bought the drink wrist band. didnt want to deal with the bottle and lockers! only took some cash and a credit card, cell phone. some rides did not have bins or only shoe bins offered! we were their to ride! drink band had value! quik get a cup of ice if thats all you needed. dinning band I did on the second day, I would NOT do again can only eat every 90 min the offered locations only serve 1 type of item per location. I payed the first day had a nice meal and a beer 34$ had some snacks n stuff in the car. ( keeping things from melting is a challenge!) The 2 first aid stations will give you bandaids for your feet n toes, chaffing cream if you need! The park, the midway was not lit up, no dazzlement like Kings Dominion or Bush Gardens It is kept clean. Most of the ride staff are foreign kids? Americans need jobs too. seems all the parks are that way. no shuttle service of any kind i seen going to the park? not even an uber? Some of the BEST coasters around! Valraven. Steel Vengance, Millinium Force.
