History[edit] Early history as Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
(1972–83)[edit]

Following the success of Kings Island
Kings Island
in Mason, Ohio, northeast of Cincinnati, Family Leisure Centers (a partnership formed between Taft Broadcasting Company and Top Value Enterprises) decided to expand into a new region of the country by opening a second park. A 400-acre (1.6 km2) site was chosen in Doswell, Virginia, north of Richmond in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic, and construction began on October 1, 1972.[5] The new park was designed with Kings Island
Kings Island
in mind as the blueprint using similar themes, rides, and activities. Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
officially opened on May 3, 1975,[2][6] offering fifteen attractions including the Rebel Yell (Now known as Racer 75), the Lion Country Safari Monorail, Galaxie, and a junior wooden roller coaster known as Scooby Doo. Also present at the opening was a log flume, steam train, a collection of flat rides and a cable-car sky ride that transported visitors between Old Virginia
Virginia
and The Happy Land of Hanna-Barbera.[5] In addition, Kings Dominion's 1/3-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower
Eiffel Tower
and the International Street Fountain greet visitors near the main entrance to the park. Original themed areas included The Happy Land of Hanna-Barbera, International Street, Lion Country Safari, Old Virginia, and Coney Island.[7] Daily admission price in 1975 was $7.50, and a dollar for parking.[2] Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
added their fourth roller coaster, a Schwarzkopf shuttle loop known as the King Kobra, in 1977. The King Kobra featured a 50-ton counter weight drop launch and was the park's first launched roller coaster. It was in the park for nine seasons before being relocated to Jolly Roger Amusement Park
Jolly Roger Amusement Park
in Ocean City, Maryland, Alton Towers in England, and later to Hopi Hari
Hopi Hari
in Brazil
Brazil
where it exists today as Katapul.[8] Also in 1977, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
was one of several amusement parks serving as location for the film Rollercoaster. A campground was completed in time for the 1978 season and the park's well-known Lost World mountain debuted in 1979. Originally, the Lost World featured three rides: a flume ride called Voyage to Atlantis, a children's attraction mine ride known as Land of the Dooz, and a rotor called Time Shaft. Only a year later in 1980, the flume ride was rethemed Haunted River. Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
later expanded Old Virginia with the addition of the park's third wooden roller coaster, the Grizzly, in 1982 and a river rapids ride called White Water Canyon
White Water Canyon
in 1983. Growth under KECO management (1983–92)[edit]

Taft Broadcasting
Taft Broadcasting
Company sold its theme park division in late 1983 for $167.5 million to Kings Entertainment Company (KECO), a new company formed by senior executives and general managers of Taft's Amusement Park Group.[9] Three parks were involved in the sale — Kings Island, Kings Dominion, and Carowinds — along with a 20-percent stake in Canada's Wonderland. American Financial Group later purchased KECO in 1987 but allowed KECO to continue to manage operations at the amusement parks.[10] One of the first additions under the new management group was Berserker — a looping starship ride added to International Street in 1984. Also that year, Smurf Mountain
Smurf Mountain
replaced the mine ride Land of the Dooz, transforming the Lost World into The Smurfs
The Smurfs
theme. Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
unveiled a TOGO
TOGO
stand-up roller coaster in 1986 called Shockwave, the first of three roller coasters to be added under KECO. Shockwave has one loop like the older King Kobra but adds a helix. King Kobra was removed at the end of the season. A water slide complex known as Racing Rivers opened in 1987, and Avalanche, which remains the only Mack bobsled roller coaster in the United States, debuted the following year in 1988.[11] The trains of Avalanche are themed after bobsleds from various countries including the United States, France, Germany, Canada
Canada
and Switzerland
Switzerland
creating the experience of a bobsled race in the Winter Olympics.[12] Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
continued to expand over the next few seasons starting with Hanna-Barbera Land in 1990 with the addition of more children's flat rides. A new, looping roller coaster from Arrow Dynamics
Arrow Dynamics
called Anaconda was introduced the following year in 1991 featuring the world's first underwater tunnel which travels under part of Lake Charles. Anaconda was also originally billed as having six loops,[13] but unlike Arrow's six-inversion coaster Drachen Fire
Drachen Fire
that opened at Busch Gardens Williamsburg
Busch Gardens Williamsburg
the following year, the Anaconda actually has only four inversions: a vertical loop, a sidewinder, and two consecutive corkscrews.[14] A new 20-acre (81,000 m2) water park addition called Hurricane Reef opened in 1992. To build the water park, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
filled in two-thirds of Lake Charles near the Candy Apple Grove region of the park. Originally it featured the Monsoon Chutes (two pairs of free-fall body slides, at 70 and 50 feet (15 m) high, respectively), the Torrential Twist (two enclosed body slides which wrapped around each other), the Pipeline (four open body slides), Cyclone (three enclosed body slides, the center of which was a free-fall), Tidal Wave (two open slides, which riders rode on inner tubes), Splash Island (an area for children with five water slides), and a lazy river.[15] Paramount era (1993–2006)[edit]

The Paramount Theatre (Now known as " Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
Theater")

Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
continued its growth when it became part of Paramount Parks in 1993 and switched its name to Paramount's Kings Dominion. New attractions and areas of the park themed to Paramount's television shows and films appeared at Paramount's Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
almost every season that they were under Paramount's ownership. In 1993, they added a motion simulator attraction, originally featuring the Days of Thunder film, and Lion County Safari was removed at the end of the season. Also in 1993, Smurf Mountain
Smurf Mountain
was removed, leaving only the Time Shaft and Haunted River remaining in The Lost World Mountain until 1995 when both rides were removed. The 1994 season saw the addition of a new area of the park themed to the 1992 Paramount motion picture Wayne's World, which featured their third full-size wooden roller coaster, Hurler, a shop called the Rock Shop, and a Stan Mikita's restaurant similar to the one featured in the film. Since then, the Wayne's World section has been merged into the Candy Apple Grove; the Stan Mikita's was converted to the Juke Box Diner, and the Hurler no longer has Wayne's World theming. The Hurler was transitioned into Twisted Timbers, the park's newest roller coaster in 2018. In the next year, another children's area, known as Nickelodeon Splat City, opened near the Shockwave roller coaster, this was a product of Viacom
Viacom
purchasing Paramount in 1994. This was later converted into Nick Central. In the 1995 season, The Skyride and The Singing Mushrooms were removed. In 1996, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
introduced its second launched roller coaster, and first LIM-launched roller coaster, The Outer Limits: Flight of Fear. The Outer Limits has a 56 miles per hour (90 km/h) launch, four inversions, and an identical "spaghetti bowl" layout to Flight of Fear at Kings Island. Almost as notable as the launch of The Outer Limits was the fact that the entire ride was in semi-darkness; the riders could not see where they were going. Five years after The Outer Limits opened, Paramount Parks' licensing agreement to use theming from the television show after which the ride was named expired; the Outer Limits theming in the ride and its queue was removed, and the ride was renamed Flight of Fear. 1997 featured the debut of KidZville, a re-theming of the Hanna-Barbera section. The park added the new Taxi Jam roller coaster, and Scooby's Playpark became a construction themed playpen called Kidz Construction Company. Yogi's Cave was rethemed to Treasure Cave and many rides in KidZville, such as Scooby Doo's Ghoster Coaster, George Jetson's Spaceport, and Huck's Hot Rods, continued to bear the names of Hanna-Barbera characters.

Kings Dominion
added another launched roller coaster in 1998, Volcano, The Blast Coaster, in the former Lost World mountain. The mountain's previous rides had all been removed several years previously, and Volcano gave the mountain a major transformation. Volcano, which was manufactured by Intamin, was the world's first LIM-launched inverted roller coaster. The ride featured two separate launch sections, an Immelman loop out of the top of the mountain, and three heartline rolls on the way back down. Volcano was themed to the 1997 film Volcano; the other Paramount Parks
Paramount Parks
added inverted or suspended roller coasters themed to Top Gun
Top Gun
around the same time. During the next two seasons, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
expanded Hurricane Reef behind the Rebel Yell and renamed it WaterWorks. The new portion of WaterWorks
WaterWorks
includes Pipeline Peak, a set of four enclosed water slides, one of which (the Night Slider) is the world's tallest dark free-fall slide. In 2000, Nick Central opened, replacing Nick Splat City and part of Kidzville.[16] The park added its third launched roller coaster, Hypersonic XLC, in 2001. Hypersonic XLC, a Thrust Air 2000
Thrust Air 2000
air-launched coaster made by S&S Power, launched riders from 0 to 80 miles per hour (130 km/h) in 1.5 seconds, taking them up an 87-degree incline and down an 87-degree drop.[17] The entire ride takes about 25 seconds. Hypersonic XLC
Hypersonic XLC
broke down frequently and was closed for the first three months of its second season; no other Paramount Parks installed a similar ride.[18] Nevertheless, Hypersonic XLC
Hypersonic XLC
helped establish Kings Dominion's reputation as "the launched coaster capital of the world".[19] Hypersonic XLC
Hypersonic XLC
was removed after the 2007 season. The early 2000s saw Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
opening new rides similar to existing rides at other Paramount Parks. In 2002, the park opened its new wild mouse roller coaster, Ricochet (Now known as Apple Zapple), Carowinds
Carowinds
also installed their Ricochet in 2002. Diamond Falls, the Shoot-the-Chutes
Shoot-the-Chutes
ride closed that season. The 2003 season saw Kings Dominion become the final of several of the Paramount Parks
Paramount Parks
to open a Drop Zone: Stunt Tower, now Drop Tower: Scream Zone. The 305-foot-high (93 m) Drop Zone at Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
was the tallest freefall ride in the world at the time it opened. In 2004, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
added Scooby-Doo! And the Haunted Mansion; similar Scooby Doo-themed dark rides had opened at three other Paramount Parks
Paramount Parks
during the three previous seasons. In the next season, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
added an inverted top spin called Tomb Raider: Firefall, now The Crypt, which was an outdoor version of a similar ride named Tomb Raider: The Ride, also now The Crypt, at Kings Island. The differences between the two were that at Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
riders' feet dangle freely and at Kings Island there is a floor. In the 2006 season, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
opened the Italian Job Turbo Coaster, its fourth launched roller coaster. Unlike the previously built launched coasters at Kings Dominion, each of which was faster than its predecessor, the Italian Job Turbo Coaster is designed more as a family ride and features several launches at 40 miles per hour (64 km/h). The coaster would later be renamed the Backlot Stunt Coaster
Backlot Stunt Coaster
in 2008. It is similar to the Backlot Stunt Coaster rides at Kings Island
Kings Island
and Canada's Wonderland, which both opened in 2005. On May 22, 2006, Cedar Fair
Cedar Fair
Entertainment Co. announced that they were purchasing all five Paramount Parks.[20] The sale was finalized on June 30, 2006 for $1.24 billion.[21] The park continued to operate as Paramount's Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
until the beginning of the 2007 season when Paramount was dropped from the title. Cedar Fair
Cedar Fair
era (2007–present)[edit] Control of the Paramount Parks
Paramount Parks
had been transferred from Viacom
Viacom
to CBS Corporation at the start of the 2007 season. For the 2007 season, the park lowered its single-day admission by $5 to $44.95,[22] one year after Cedar Point
Cedar Point
had made the same change to their ticket prices. This was the first time that Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
has ever lowered their ticket prices for a full season.[22] In addition, they brought back their Starlight discount, which allows admission to the park for $29.99 after 4pm.[22] Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
expanded WaterWorks
WaterWorks
for the 2007 season, adding a second wave pool called Tidal Wave Bay, a four-person family raft slide called Zoom Flume, and a ProSlide
ProSlide
Tornado.[22] During the Cedar Fair
Cedar Fair
era, the park introduced Halloween
Halloween
Haunt. While the park had always had a Halloween
Halloween
event, the new HAUNT event has been received very well. In December 2006, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
also put Hypersonic XLC
Hypersonic XLC
up for sale.[23] The park announced plans to keep it running until a buyer was found. It remained in operation during the 2007 season and was closed and dismantled several weeks before the 2008 season started. Also during the 2007–2008 offseason, Cedar Fair
Cedar Fair
renamed the park's last two rides to open with Paramount theming. Drop Zone Stunt Tower became Drop Tower
Drop Tower
Scream Zone and The Italian Job: Turbo Coaster became Backlot Stunt Coaster. Tomb Raider: Firefall received the name The Crypt. The Paramount Theater also changed its name to Kings Dominion Theater.[24]

Dominator, a Bolliger & Mabillard floorless roller coaster formerly located at Geauga Lake, opened in 2008 in International Street. Dominator is the longest floorless roller coaster in the world, with the fourth largest vertical loop in the world

The 2008 and 2009 seasons saw Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
receive three rides which had operated at Geauga Lake
Geauga Lake
during its dry amusement park's final season. On October 23, 2007, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
announced that Dominator, a floorless roller coaster, would be moved to Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
and located in the International Street section.[25] Dominator opened on May 24, 2008, becoming Kings Dominion's first roller coaster with five inversions. For the 2009 season, two flat rides once located at Geauga Lake, like Dominator, opened in 2008. Located near Rebel Yell, Americana became Kings Dominion's first Ferris wheel.[26] El Dorado, a pendulum ride, opened in the former site of Hypersonic XLC
Hypersonic XLC
next to the Xtreme Skyflyer. For the 2010 season, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
opened Intimidator 305, a 305-foot-tall (93 m) gigacoaster by Intamin. The ride features a cable lift hill, an 85° first drop and a maximum speed of 90 mph (140 km/h). The ride, which is themed to NASCAR
NASCAR
driver Dale Earnhardt, was announced on August 20, 2009, and represents the park's largest-ever capital investment. It was opened to the public in May 2010.[27] Also for the 2010 season, the Kidzville and Nickelodeon Universe areas of the park began being re-themed to Planet Snoopy, as were the children's areas at Canada's Wonderland
Canada's Wonderland
and Kings Island. The park has renamed the Hanna-Barbera themed rides in Kidzville to match the Planet Snoopy
Planet Snoopy
theme, ending the park's 35-year run with Scooby Doo and other Hanna-Barbera characters. For the 2012 season, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
installed WindSeeker
WindSeeker
in the Grove section of the park next to the Juke Box Diner. There are other versions of the ride in Cedar Fair
Cedar Fair
parks such as Canada's Wonderland, Cedar Point, Kings Island, Knott's Berry Farm, and Carowinds. The ride stands 301 feet (92 m) and gives riders a view of the surrounding area.[28] Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
also added Dinosaurs Alive!, an upcharge dinosaur walkthrough exhibit, located in the Old Virginia
Virginia
section of the park. This attraction also appears at Kings Island, Dorney Park, Cedar Point, and Canada's Wonderland.[28] For the 2013 season, Planet Snoopy
Planet Snoopy
merged with KidZville during a 7-acre (2.8 ha) expansion to form the largest Planet Snoopy
Planet Snoopy
in the Cedar Fair
Cedar Fair
chain. There are now 18 attractions covering 14 acres (5.7 ha).[29] For the 2014 season, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
commemorated the 40th anniversary of Lion Country Safari and the preview-opening of Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
by returning park icons from past eras. These icons included the return of the classic singing mushrooms, the repainting of Anaconda, an improved queue line for Volcano: The Blast Coaster, the return of classic blue ice cream, among other additions. The 2014 season also saw the return of the iconic floral clock, the popular clown band, and the renaming of Johnny's and Trail's End Grill restaurants to their original names, Dinner Bell and Hungry Hippo, respectively. New lighting packages were added to the International Street fountains and Rebel Yell. The Congo and Grove sections of the park returned to their original themes, Safari Village and Candy Apple Grove, respectively. For the 2015 season, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
continued in celebration of their 40th anniversary with a major expansion to WaterWorks. The expansion included a new 65-foot tall slide complex featuring three different attractions called Paradise Plunge, Aqua Blast, and Thunder Falls; a new children's area called Splash Island; expanded cabana areas, updated bathhouses, and other improvements to the area. As part of the major water park expansion, the area was renamed Soak City.[30] On August 9, 2015, Shockwave closed in Candy Apple Grove permanently, and a swinging pendulum ride titled "Delirium" was built in its place.[31] Hurler closed permanently at the end of the season on November 1, 2015.[32] For the 2017 season, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
will expand the Planet Snoopy
Planet Snoopy
area by adding three new children's rides and a covered pavilion area. Free park-wide WiFi and Cedar Fair's FunPix photo service will also become available to guests. On October 15, 2016, Kings Dominion

Candy Apple Grove[edit] The area was known as Coney Island when the park opened in 1975. It was renamed Candy Apple Grove in 1976. In the 1990s, Candy Apple Grove lost much of its theming as it merged with the former Wayne's World area in 2001; the newly combined area was renamed as simply The Grove. Candy Apple Grove is Kings Dominion's largest area in the park. The area opened with an orchard theme complete with large candy apples, the popular animatronic Singing Mushrooms, and three apple-themed rides: Apple Turnover,[40] Bad Apple, and Adam's Apple. As part of Kings Dominion's 40th anniversary celebration, the Grove was rethemed to Candy Apple Grove with the return of its original theme including the newly developed Singing Mushrooms,[41] floral clock, and the popular clown band.[42] In addition to rides, the area features carnival games, an arcade, fast-food restaurants, and a gift shop. The 301 foot tall swing ride, WindSeeker, opened in 2012. Candy Apple Grove's newest ride, Delirium, a Mondial Revolution, replaced the Shockwave stand-up coaster in 2016. Hurler, a wooden roller coaster by International Coasters, Inc., closed in 2015. A new steel hybrid coaster, Twisted Timbers, opened in 2018 using some of Hurler's support structure.

Controversy[edit] In 2013, the park's " Halloween
Halloween
Haunt" event featured a walk-through maze called Miner's Revenge. Advertisements for the attraction characterized it as "the worst coal mine accident in history,"[47] and the attraction featured depictions of dead miners' bodies that had been mangled by a mining disaster. The attraction drew criticism in the press for being in poor taste due to the region's experience with mine disasters. Washington Post
Washington Post
writer Peter Galuszka (author of a book on the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster)[48] said that the attraction "hits a little too close to home for me" since "The idea of abandonment is a difficult topic for miners. At Kings Dominion, the suggestion of living miners left to die is meant to inject some enjoyable dramatic tension",[49] while in the Washington Monthly, Kathleen Geier decried that "agonizing deaths are being served up for fun and profit to the gawking, peanut-crunching masses" and asked "What next — a thrill ride based on the Rana Plaza factory disaster in Bangladesh? Auschwitz: The Theme Park?".[50] Following the controversy, Kings Dominion
Kings Dominion
stated that they would not operate Miner's Revenge in the future. Timeline[edit]
