Kings Dominion, Doswell, Virginia
Just outside Richmond, Kings Dominion takes your average thrill ride and loops it, spins it, twists it, and sends it soaring to new heights. The park offers rides that will leave you screaming for more, including its newest addition, the Dominator. If having your stomach in your throat isn't for you, the park also offers tamer family rides, live shows, and a water park.
The price of an adult ticket purchased at the gate is $51.95, but you can save almost $12 by buying your tickets online in advance. The "Pay Once, Visit Twice" ticket is also a great value for $51.95, because it gives you two days for the price of one. (Photo: Cedar Fair Entertainment Company)
