Next weekend, the boys and I are spending Saturday at Kings Dominion. We are excited to be making our first visit as a family. Kings Dominion is a theme park and waterpark with kid-friendly food options and plenty for everyone to do. I have already scouted the park map and marked a few things for us to do.
Since my children are thrill-seekers, I think we will take a ride on the Flying Eagles, since that is one ride that we can all go on together. The kids will have fun moving the “eagle” around. We will probably also take a turn at the Shenandoah Lumber Company log ride and Scrambler as well.
The park has a lot of family-friendly rides. On their website, they list the height requirements for every ride or attraction. This is very helpful because I know in advance what rides the kids will be able to go on and can come up with a backup ride option if one is not tall enough rather quickly.
There is plenty for my kids to enjoy in the waterpark section of Kings Dominion. They are looking forward to playing in Splash Island and the Soak City Splash House, if the weather permits it. They will most likely want to go Freestylin’ and ride down the Lazy Rider on tubes too.
Kings Dominion has several familiar national restaurant brands plus a few signature dining options as well. Even those with dietary restrictions will be able to find a satisfying meal.
Some of the national restaurant brands they have are:
- Auntie Anne’s Pretzels
- Country Kitchen
- Dippin Dots
- Panda Express
The park also has a Chicken Shack, a pizza parlor, a soda shop, a burger/sandwich place and a health-food option. I am sure that the boys will want Dippin Dots, so that may be the last stop before we leave the park. There is a Starbucks on premises too, in case moms and dads need a caffeine boost.
Closing Thoughts about Kings Dominion
There is far more to do than any family can pack into one day, but planning one day a month to go have fun will give us the opportunity to get out and do things as a family at a theme park that will keep us busy. Stay tuned, early next week, for an update about our day, what goodies we find to eat and some pictures of our fun adventure.
