Spending the Day at Kings Dominion Amusement Park

Kings Dominion Amusement Park in Doswell, Virginia
Kings Dominion is a  family-friendly amusement park located in Doswell Virginia, located about 20 miles north of Richmond. This amusement park has been in continuous operation since 1975. Every year we take a road trip from central Pennsylvania down to Virginia Beach to visit family and to have some fun. Every time we go down there we plan on spending one day at Kings Dominion.

The park sits on 400 acres and offers over 60 amusement park rides, including 13 thrilling roller coasters. If amusement park rides aren't your thing, they also offer a 20 acre water park on-site and various shows are held throughout the day. No matter what your age...there is something fun for you to see and do while there.

Hours of Operation: The park is open seasonally...spring, summer and fall. Their hours depend on the season and the weather. They reserve the right to close on days that severe weather is in the area. If you're in doubt, consult their website, social media channels and/or call ahead before visiting.

When visiting the park you want to dress appropriately for the current weather conditions and wear comfortable footwear. For security reasons they recommend that you don't bring any bags with you into the park unless they're baby diaper bags, medical bags, etc. Alcohol and drugs are not permitted.

Often times when we're visiting the park we have our two young grandchildren along with us. If you're traveling with kids you'll want to visit the park's Planet Snoopy area which includes Peanut's themed rides, characters dressed in costume, fun shows and other Peanut's themed attractions. Kids of all ages enjoy visiting Planet Snoopy!!!

If you're looking to visit the park and save some can buy your tickets online and print them off to take along with you. You can visit Kings Dominion online to get their current operating schedule, driving directions and if you're looking for a place to stay nearby, you can find that information on their site too.

I've got a few additional tips to share with you. If you want to avoid big crowds and extremely long lines...try visiting during their spring & fall operating months and/or weekdays. During the summertime weekends...the park can get extremely crowded!!! Next, if you're bringing children along with you...make sure you put all of your contact information on the child in case they would accidentally get separated from you. You can write your info on their shoes, place a slip of paper into their pocket, etc. Always nice to plan ahead and to be prepared!
