9 ways to get Paramounts Kings Dominion discount tickets for as little as $15.99 per ticket!
With the fact that the park has once again raised their ticket prices last year (by $4 for adults) you can't afford to NOT look at these deals.
On my main Kings Dominion page, I already detailed how important it is to buy your tickets in advance: Adults who show up at the gate to buy tickets will pay $10 more than if they ordered them in advance online. But that's just the minimum savings. You can do MUCH better with my deals below.
Limited time Living Social Deal - DEAL EXPIRED - Go to Livingsocial.com, type in "Kings Dominion" and you'll find a deal good for two tickets for $64 (that's $32 per ticket). Deal ends July 15.
Military Discounts - In 2014, active and retired members of the military with valid ID can buy single-day tickets for $38.99 per person (up to six tickets per ID; available at the gate only). Admission is free for active and retired military with ID on Military Appreciation Days (May 25-27 and July 4-5).
2014 Virginia Parks & Rec Deals - Save up to $30 per ticket!
Many southern Virginia parks & rec offices may offer slight discounts, including the Virginia Parks & Recreation site, which offers Paramounts Kings Dominion tickets for $40 (good any day). If you go on select dates (including all of July), you'll save even more, paying just $33 per ticket for these dates:

1) Virginia Beach Vacation Market -
If you're in Virginia Beach, you may be able to get a single day Paramounts Kings Dominion discount tickets for up to $8 less than the online price by going to one of Vacation Market's three locations on Atlantic Avenue (16th, 25th, and 31st Streets).
Note: They also offer Busch Gardens Williamsburg discount tickets, as well as discounts on many other local attractions, including Colonial Williamsburg and Water Country USA.
2) Try a local Parks & Rec Center -
Most Virginia Parks & Rec Departments sell Paramounts Kings Dominion discount tickets. They also offer discount tickets good for certain summer days (called "P&R" Days). See the "2014 Virginia Parks & Rec Deals" above for details.
3) Check out local hotels -
Local hotels sometimes offer Kings Dominion package deals which can save you money.
The Embassy Suites in Richmond, the Virginia Crossings Resort in Glen Allen, and the Days Inn in Ruther Glen are three hotels which have offered park packages in the past (the first two are a bit of a drive from the park, but the Days Inn is only 5 miles away).
When booking a local hotel, do your research. For example, I've heard a slew of poor reviews about how dirty the Best Western Kings Quarters is...not worth the money, shady characters, etc. I recommend you check at sites like www.tripadvisor.com for travelers reviews.
4) Look for Promo Codes!
See the promo codes I've noted above! They can save you big bucks, but remember: Coupon codes are subject to change at any time.
To use them, go to www.kingsdominion.com. Click on "Tickets" and then on the drop down bar, select "promo code" and enter the coupon code.
During the fall, after taking a two-week pause, the park gears up for its Halloween-themed scarefest: Halloween Haunt. Those admission prices are completely different and have their own potential discounts. To be honest, it's not my "cup of tea," but it attracts thousands of people during weekends mid-September through the end of October looking for a good scare.
And I always manage to "scare" up the latest Paramounts Kings Dominion Halloween Haunt discounts. To learn how to get your discounts, go to my Halloween Haunt page.
Paramounts Kings Dominion also offers a variety of season passes which are actually pretty good deals. This year, only two of them include free season parking. The cheapest prices are available if you buy four or more tickets.
Looking for other ways to save at Paramounts Kings Dominion?
So make sure you, er, make them invisible. (I use a small backpack-sized purse that holds a bottle of water and a few snacks inconspicuously.) Another option is to bring a picnic lunch in a cooler and leave it in the car for later. Get your hand stamped and you can take a break in the middle of the day to go out to your car and eat. Another alternative: get your hand stamped and leave the park for lunch in nearby Ashland.

After flying to 40 countries I thought I'd learned it all about air travel. But as I sat on the plane last night returning from a trip to the West coast I suddenly realized three things I'll do next time I fly.
1) Bring bleach wipes: Yep, I'd brought Wet Wipes to clean off my seat area, having learned long ago that airplane seat armrests, tray tables, and seat pockets are teeming with bacteria. But after all the funky germs we keep hearing about in the news (e.g., MRSA) and sitting there thinking how many people had probably touched that seat area since the last good scrubbing, I wish I'd brought bleach wipes. Next time.
2) Bring a little vial of "odor protector": Can't believe this has never happened to me before, but the guy next to me absolutely reeked of mold, having obviously left his clothes in the washing machine for a week. How'd you like to sit next to that for five hours? My sister-in-law likes to travel with a dab of peppermint oil or a little Vicks Vapor rub under her nose when she flies. Now I know why. So next time, I'm bringing a little vial of my favorite perfume as a little odor defense if I need it.
3) Fly Virgin: One word comes to mind after flying Virgin America for the first time. "Wow." Just "wow." They make flying fun again! Everything, from the music they play at check-in, to the friendly staff and flight attendants (who all seem to love their jobs compared to staff on other airlines who often seem basically fed-up and sometimes curt) to their hilarious and brilliant safety video, to the fact that my luggage was waiting for me in Baggage Check BEFORE I even got down there, they made me a Virgin believer!
