May update: Get up to $30 off Kings Dominion single-day tickets - plus, "Bring a Friend" deal for just $15.99!
I have good news and bad news.
First, the bad news about Kings Dominion (opening day is March 29). For 2013, the park has AGAIN jacked up their single-day ticket fee significantly (by $4 per ticket). That meant that a family of four could spend over $52 more than several years ago just to get in the gate!
That's why my discount ticket info is so crucial for you.
My business is to save you money--which leads to the good news...See my discount ticket finds below.
Scroll down to learn:
Here are the 2013 regular (non-discounted) ticket prices:
- Adult Single-day Ticket Online Price: $61.99 (ages 3-61 AND 48" and taller)
- Child/Senior single-day ticket: $39.99 (Ages 3-61 and under 48”, ages 62+)
...Now here's how to get tickets for less.
Click the "single-day summer discount ticket" link below to save $22-30 per ticket!
First thing to know: If possible, always buy tickets in advance online, and you'll save $10 per ticket for adult tickets, paying just $51.99 (junior/senior tickets are the same price in-person or online).
Next, decide if you want a single-day ticket or a season pass. I have discount secrets for both. Kings Dominion offers a variety of season passes which are actually pretty good deals, especially if you buy four or more tickets.
Unfortunately, only the Gold and Platinum passes give you free parking. Buy the regular season pass and you'll have to pay for daily parking. And at $15 a pop, that can add up if you go multiple times. (As of last year, Kings Dominion parking is more expensive than at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.)

Note: Unless you're covered by a season pass, Halloween Haunt - the park's Halloween-themed event which runs Sept.-Oct. - has completely different ticket prices. So click here for Halloween Haunt ticket deals and info.

To help you save on food, Kings Dominion offers Meal Deals. Since the park hasn't yet posted 2013 meal deals, here are the 2012 meal deals to give you an idea of what they may offer this season. I'll post 2013 info as soon as it's available. To get my latest updates, subscribe to my Virginia Beach Blog.
Picnic in the Park
For $17.50 for adults, $11.50 for juniors and seniors you get an all-you-can-eat buffet from 3:30-4:30 pm. The buffet includes fried chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, soft drinks, iced tea and ice cream treats.
One catch: Picnic time is only from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, which forces you to plan your ride times a little. Plus, Picnic tickets MUST be purchased in advance, are not available at the front gate, and sometimes sell out-- so plan ahead!
Save 30% when you purchase this plan that gives you one entree, one bottle of water or soda, and one snack. At $15.49 per person, it can be redeemed at many places in the park and can be used anytime during the day.
Have breakfast with your favorite Snoopy character for $16.05 for adults or $10.85 for juniors/seniors. The meal includes scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon, french toast sticks, milk, coffee, etc., and is available 10:30 am to noon.
