Paramount's Kings Dominion is an amusement park with over 200 rides to thrill you. Everyone is sure to have a great time. Rides for kids, families, and extreme thrills for the adventurous await you.

Take the young family members to Kidsville and Nickelodeon Central for many fun rides. They can drive a car down the street. Have fun riding the Scooby-Doo's Ghoster Coaster, a roller coaster for the whole family. Create the ultimate Krabby Patty in Spongebob Squarepants 3-D. Meet and Greet the Nicktoon characters.

For the older crowd there are several rides including lots of roller coasters rated 3 (intermediate thrill ride), 4 (high thrill ride), and 5 (extreme thrill ride). Get raised 305 feet into the air, then dropped straight down at 72 mph on the Drop Zone Stunt Tower. Shoot in, around, and out the top of the volcano at speeds over 70 mph on Volcano, The Blast Coaster. Climb aboard the Flight of Fear and ride this coaster at high speed enclosed in semi-darkness. The anaconda will loop you around this way and that and drop you 144 feet. Strap yourself into Tomb Raider: Firefall and be flung around over fire and water spinning you upside down. The Hypersonic XLC is the only compressed-air launched coaster in the United States.

On a hot day bring your swim suit and jump in the water at Waterworks. Float on a tube down the Lazy Rider, dive into Big Wave Bay, slide down Pipeline Peak. The kids will enjoy 'Lil Barefoot Beach. Waterworks is part of Kings Dominion so you can enjoy all the roller coasters and rides and the water park all at the same time.

KAT'S VIEW

My favorite area was the Congo area. They had the Tomb Raider Firefall. There were small spires that were lit on fire when the ride starts. And small geysers that didn't get the ride wet. There was the Anaconda, my third favorite ride. You went underwater in a tunnel for a few seconds, but that was it. The volcano, my second favorite ride, was level 5. Every once and a while they lit the volcano on fire, but not when you are shooting through it. The ride goes from zero to 60 in about 2 seconds. In the very back was my favorite ride, Flight of Fear. You instantly start going at very fast speeds. The ride is so fast its over very quickly and you are riding in the dark!
