We recently visited Kings Dominion and had the best time! My three children are at the perfect age for Planet Snoopy and they had a blast at the water park, Soak City. According to my children their favorite attraction is Joe Cool's Driving School. They love that there are working stop lights and stop signs! My daughter says that Planet Snoopy was her favorite area of the park. Meeting Snoopy and friends was so special. My son really enjoyed Boo Blasters On Boo Hill. I'd recommend spending the first part of your day at Planet Snoopy. The line's weren't bad at all and we arrived right when the park opened at 10:30 am. After 2 hours we headed to Soak City which opened at noon. We had lunch in Soak City. They have lockers available for rental (additional fee). We were able to find two nice lounge chairs near Splash Island. My younger children (ages 6 and 5) loved Splash Island. This is a nice shady water play area for children under 54". It is centrally located and has a great view of the lazy river.
Throughout the day Snoopy and friends will appear for photos and meetngreets
Be sure to visit Dinosaur's Live--admission is $5 per person and it takes about 30 to 45 minutes to view all of the animatronic dinosaurs. It is really quite fun!
We had so much fun at Soak City! We could easily have spent the whole day just in the water area because my kids loved it! We started out with the lazy river followed by the Baja Bend water slides (my 9 year old's favorite water slide) and then we headed to the wave pool. My daughter and I rode Hurricane Heights. My younger children had a blast playing in Splash Island which is a really nice area for children under 5 years old. There were water squirters, a small slide and climbing area and a big bucket that dumps water. It is also very shaded in this area. Another fun area for younger children is pictured below, Soak City Splash House:
This has over 40 water attractions and a huge bucket that dumps water. There is a swimming bridge too.
My 9 year old said her favorite snack at Kings Dominion is their ice cream!
Once it gets dark outside many of the attractions light up including the huge ferris wheel and even the Eiffel Tower! It changed colors and there was a super cool forest where the tree's change colors and there is music playing. My kids thought this was so neat.
The Eiffel Tower is beautiful at night
