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.
