Description - Published on Jul/31/2009
Kings Dominion is an amusement park located in Doswell, VA, 23 miles north of Richmond and 83 miles south of Washington, DC on I-95.
The 400-acre (1.6 km2) park is currently owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, and was part of the former Paramount Parks chain that Cedar Fair acquired from CBS Corporation on Jun 30, 2006.
The park was named after its sister park, Kings Island in Kings Mills, Ohio, which opened in 1972.
Kings Dominions name was more than likely a reference to Virginias nickname as the "Old Dominion".
It offers a full day of fun with more than 50 rides, seven roller coasters, live family entertainment and a 19-acre water park.
It is known to have some of the best roller coasters in the east coast.
The amusement park is very crowded on the weekends and because of its central location in Virginia. If you can plan to visit on a weekday, the lines are usually shorter.
Kings Dominion is open weekends from April 4th through Memorial Day and daily Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day. The park is also open weekends from Labor Day through October. Kings Dominion opens at 10:30 a.m. everyday. Waterworks Water Park opens at noon, weather permitting May 23 - Sept 7. Closing times vary throughout the season.
International Street is the parks main street area, which greets guests when they enter the park. Both sides of the street are lined with shops, including two park-related souvenir shops just inside the parks front gate.
* Grande Bandstand features live concerts.
* Berserker (opened 1984) is a swinging Viking ship similar to a Looping Starship.
* Eiffel Tower (opened 1975) is a 1/3 scale replica of the Eiffel Tower; guests may ride elevators up to its observation deck at 275 feet (84 m).
* Action Theater motion simulator attraction has been open in the park since 1993.
* Dominator (opened 2008) is a floorless roller coaster built by Bolliger and Mabillard.
Along with International Street, Old Virginia is the only original section of Kings Dominion that has kept its same name throughout the parks history; one of its current attractions, the Shenandoah Lumber Company (Log Flume), is one of the parks longest-running rides.

JelloOnWeb - actually, carowinds is getting the intimidator. were getting intimidator 305, which is better that the version at carowinds. so to me, as long as the same rides better at kd, im ok with it being copied.
Wolfdemonalchemist - Before i moved to GA, i lived in VA. Me, my family and my friend would go to Kings Dominion in the summer like 3 times a week. I have done everything in that park. Rides, shows, roller coasters, water works ( water park), been in every store, all the arcade games and their events ( halloween and more). I am not kinding i got season pass every year.
MaTTDuD3 - i get to go here when i go up to the 2010 jamboree xD, anybody else going to that
Nathan Ellingwood - @stangsaleens7 They want Cedar Point to remain their best park, that's why. Kings Island already outpacing them in attendance, so another giant coaster would push them that much closer to being better than their flagship park. However, the true leader of this competition is Canada's Wonderland - they're the #1 visited seasonal theme park in North America.
Headbang2012 - Kings Island can't sue them for that. They have always been owned by the same organizations and those organizations were the ones who decided to put the same rides in both parks.
Edith Zelaya - I goin on sunday 1st time
Jrandomness96 - kings dominion is awesome! Cant wait for there new ride!
Wolfdemonalchemist - @rollercoasterking1 not, they r hours and hours away
MrJagfootball63 - i was just a kings dominion today it it was so much fun...today they had the joyfest and so many people showed i mean the concert was greay Fred Hammond Canton Jones Donald Lawrence J Moss Sinbad and someone else i dont remember BUT IT WAS GREAT
freemoneyallright - @walrusguy4 no they did not copie all the rides at kings island they copied kingsdominion just like kingsdominion have a new ride out called intimidator 305 were did kinds island get the name intimidator thats all i have to say.......................not trying to be mean
jr - @rollercoasterking1 lucky!
Nathan Ellingwood - @rollercoasterking1 How could you go to four parks in two days? Besides being exhausting, how do you make it to all four in that short amount of time? I went to Cedar Point this year and took four days off to go there (2 days at the park and 2 days driving); I was so tired after going on that trip. I couldn't see going through 4 parks like that without having to rest in between. Theme parks are fun but they also can where you out, you know what I mean...
Nathan Ellingwood - Kings Dominion has better scenery at International Street than Kings Island. KI's is just a big concret slab with a fountain in the middle and buildings all around.
Headbang2012 - there are actually 12 coasters if you count the two kiddie coasters
TheDragonFilms10 - They took away el dorado and replaced it with the windseeker
Wolfdemonalchemist - @Wolfdemonalchemist also kid rides
stangsaleens7 - @najellin Yes, but i still beleive that they should of done better, and canada's wonderland is in canada. "hints the name"
stangsaleens7 - Kings island is way better than kings dominion. Kings dominion is lucky tho cedar fair is giving them the intimidator 305 witch is 305ft tall when cedar fair fucked diamondback witch is only 230ft tall, their retarted they should of gave kings island a 300+ ft tall rollercoaster too.
Josue Rivas - if you noe ; kings dominion open first & had the rides open first:p
