"Family Fun"
November 2019
Our family had a great time, which can be hard to do with such a big age gap at times. Our boys are age 18 and 9 and each of them brought a friend, we had no arguing, complaining, and the older ones even rode with the younger ones on some of the roller coasters they were finally tall enough to ride! When the night fell Halloween was in full swing and the haunted house and corn maze did not disappoint. They all said their favorite part was riding rides at night. There was something for everyone! We will certainly do this again next year.

"Great experience!"
August 2019
first time at Kings dominion, and we all had a bast. Though we checked the forecast and there was no rain in the forecast, a storm came through and we had to leave early, so we didn't get to all the rides we wanted to or get to the water park, however, we had fun on the park and the rides that we were able to go on.

Tip: if possible do not get a one-day ticket, just in case it rains, or if you do get a one-day ticket and it rains, wait it out in one of the eat-in areas, so the fun does not have to end because of the weather
