Location: Kings Dominion is located right off Exit 98 on Interstate 95, 20 miles north of Richmond, VA and 75 miles south of Washington, DC.

History: Kings Dominion was opened in 1975 by Family Leisure Centers, a joint venture between Top Value Enterprises and Taft Broadcasting Company, both of Cincinnati, Ohio.

In 1982, senior executives from Taft Broadcasting purchased the theme park division of Taft and formed Kings Entertainment Company (KECO) which included Kings Dominion, Carowinds, Kings Island, and Canada’s Wonderland.

In 1993, Paramount purchased KECO and Kings Dominion became part of the Paramount Park chain.

In 2006, Cedar Fair Entertainment purchased Paramount Parks and is the current owner of Kings Dominion.
