Kings Dominion

< Back to Listings

Grab your friends and family and come to Kings Dominion – Virginia’s ultimate destination for summertime fun!
We’ve got 400 acres packed with more than 60 rides, shows and attractions -- everything you need for creating lifelong memories. Thrill-seekers will get their fix with one of the East Coast’s largest collection of breath-taking roller coasters – a whopping 15 in all -- including Intimidator 305™, which stretches 305 feet tall and screams at more than 90 miles per hour. Families will delight in the zany rides and activities at Planet Snoopy, featuring Snoopy and the entire PEANUTS™ gang. Everyone will enjoy our spectacular high energy live shows. When the heat rises, cool down at WaterWorks, our 20 acre waterpark with two gigantic wave pools, exhilarating water slides, a lazy river and so much more. Plus, WaterWorks is included in your park admission – the only Virginia destination offering two parks for the price of one!
What’s more, this season marks the beginning of our 40th Celebration. While it’s our birthday, this celebration is all about you! We’ve taken all of the thrills, chills, smiles and dazzling moments of our history and crafted them into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Don’t miss it!
Kings Dominion is conveniently located along Interstate 95 at Exit 98 in Richmond, VA.
