How much do the regularly priced Kings Dominion tickets cost?
As of Summer 2013, the full price at the park's ticket booths is $61.99 for adults & teens, and $39.99 for kids and seniors over age 62. (Note: children must be under 48" tall to purchase a kid's ticket.

Kings Dominion Discounts and Coupons
King's Dominion Discount Coupons
1.) Richmond Convention and Visitor's Bureau coupon for King's Dominion: You can print a coupon that will save you $10 off of your ticket to King's Dominion. Where will you find it? Easy---on the official Richmond, VA tourist website, www.VisitRichmondVA.com! (See the bottom of Home Page. This coupon is good all the way through October 24, 2013.) Along with your discount coupon, you'll be able to find out just about anything you want to know about tourist attractions in & around Richmond.
For more coupons, including deals at hotels that have play-and-stay packages for King's Dominion, here's a link to the coupons & special offers page of the website. Your coupons will pop up in a small window, if your browser is working correctly.
2.) FREE military tickets to King's Dominion:
Every year, King's Dominion holds Military Salute days, and 2013 is no exception. Active, inactive and retired members of the military will receive FREE admission to King's Dominion for the Memorial Day and Independence Day holidays. The exact dates of the special this year are: May 25, May 26, May 27, July 4 and July 5th. To take advantage of this offer, simply show your military ID at the King's Dominion ticket booths. Since this offer does not include family members, you should use a different type of discount for the friends and family who will be accompanying you to the park.
3.) Look for coupons being sent to last year's season pass holders! Did you have a King's Dominion season pass last year? (Or, a Cedar Fair all-parks pass which you purchased at King's Dominion?) Then, check your mailbox carefully, because coupons will be sent out that are good for very cheap King's Dominion tickets! These are single-day tickets good for selected dates only, but even so, this will be a terrific deal!
What's the catch? There really isn't a catch. King's Dominion has statistics which show that former season pass holders renew them at a high rate. They simply wish to lure former passholders back into the park...which will very likely tempt them to purchase a King's Dominion season pass again this year! The entire amount that you pay per ticket when using this coupon can be counted towards a 2013 season pass purchase if you DO decide to get one! So, what's not to like about this special deal? The only restriction on this coupon is that it can't be used to purchase Junior or Senior tickets, which are already substantially discounted compared to the full-priced adult tickets.
4.) Employer & Credit Union discount tickets: If you do your banking with a credit union in Virginia (or the surrounding states,) you may be able to get discounted tickets for King's Dominion there. The price differs a little bit from one credit union to another, but in 2013, the cost is running around $36-40 for an adult/teen ticket. Be sure to ask your credit union (or check your c.u.'s website) to see if these money-saving tickets are available.
Also, discount tickets are available through some of the area's employers. You may check your human resources department to see if your workplace offers them. If tickets aren't available, you can encourage your employer to offer them. You can show the King's Dominion company outings and discount tickets section of the park's website to get the ball rolling.
Print-at-home ticket Specials:
1.) The King's Dominion general print-at-home discount for 2013 will be $10 per ticket. This will be available at all times during the 2013 season, so that if you simply take the time to plan ahead, you can take advantage of this web-only special.
Note: A pop-up window opens up on the King's Dominion website when you want to purchase tickets. Some browsers do not display the ticket-purchasing window properly. If this happens to you, then you should try using a different browser.
2.) Surprise discounts: Print-at-home discounts can sometimes give you even more or a savings than the park's normal $10 web-only discount. For example, this Summer, the park is offering a special "3-day advance purchase" discount. This discount will be discontinued at some point, but it won't be the last surprise discount of the year. Last year there were several other specials offered during the summer and fall, including a pick-a-date discount and an adults-at-kids-price discount, as well. Before hunting around elsewhere, don't forget to check King's Dominion's own ticketing pages to make sure they're not having a better money-saving deal than you can get elsewhere.
3.) Twilight Discount: If you plan to enter King's Dominion after 4 pm, then you can save money by purchasing the park's own Twilight Ticket online. The price is always about the same price as a kid's ticket...but sometimes the Twilight Tickets come on sale even cheaper.
4.) Other Print at Home Discounts: As the year progresses, there are expected to be other online discounts made available. Towards the beginning of the season, the park likes to push season passes. But later on as the summer winds down, we should see some other types of discounts promoted by King's Dominion, such as "Pink Days" discount tickets, Two Day Ticket specials, and Value Passes.

Season Passes at Kings Dominion
2013 Season Passes are now on sale!
While it can be hard to predict how many times you will go to Kings Dominion, this question is very important to see if a season pass is the best option for you. The math is simple, though. A one day admission ticket costs 61.99, or else $51.99 when purchased online. The Silver Annual Pass to King's Dominion costs quite a bit less than double that amount.
Knowing this information, you can see that even if you only go 2 days in the entire operating season, you'll save money if you get a season pass. If you go 3 or more days this year, a season pass will save you more and more money with each and every visit.
Here are the available season passes at Kings Dominion this year:
1.) 2013 Silver Pass: Good for admission to rides, attractions and WaterWorks throughout MOST of the 2013 operating season....but not all. The last day you may use a Silver Pass is Labor Day this year. What it doesn't cover: Parking; Halloween Haunt admission; and extra-fee attractions. What's the price? $75 at the time of this update in Summer, 2013. Installment payments are available at this time, so that you may spread out the cost over 6 small payments. The monthly payment plan may end at any time, so if you'd like to use it, you should get your pass as soon as possible. There is no discount for kids or seniors when buying a silver pass.
Note: A pop-up window opens up on the King's Dominion website when you want to purchase a pass. Some browsers do not display the ticket-purchasing window properly. If this happens to you, then try using a different browser.
2.) 2013 Gold Pass: The King's Dominion Gold pass isn't offered all year long. In 2013, it was offered in the Spring, but discontinued during the summer. If the Gold Pass returns, it's a good deal. It gives you admission to the theme park and WaterWorks AND free parking every day of the 2013 season, including Halloween Haunt. What's not covered: Extra-fee attractions. How much did the Gold Pass cost this past Spring? $102...or a little less if you purchase 4 passes at the same time. You can check to see if the Gold Pass is being offered again at the time you'll be visiting the park by using the link to King's Dominion's season pass page (below.)
3.) 2013 Platinum Pass: At a price of $192 adults and $112 junior/senior, this pass is the most expensive of the bunch, but well worth it IF you can use the benefits. The big difference between other season passes and the Platinum pass is that ONLY the Platinum pass allows you to get free admission to other Cedar Fair parks (like Cedar Point, Carowinds, Dorney Park and King's Island)... and with free parking at all of them. As you can see on cedarfair.com website (Kings Dominion's parent company), there are a number of popular theme parks throughout the country that this pass will get you into. If you plan on going to any one of them, this pass will be a great deal for you. It is exciting to think about going to another park, because Cedar Fair operates some of the world's best theme parks. However, if you are not going to visit other theme parks enough to make the extra cost of the Platinum Pass pay for itself, then the either the Silver or the Gold pass would be the most cost effective option for you.
