Kings Dominion or Busch Gardens?

It's been years since I've been to Busch Gardens. I have friends that love BG and go there every year. We usually purchase Kings Dominion Season Passes. I really don't ride roller coasters or many other rides for that matter. I have this 'motion' thing. Riding in the back of a moving vehicle can make me sick at times. Lots of fresh air and horizon gazing helps. My trips to amusement parks consist largely of enjoying the pricey food and being amused by what I see, and people give you lots to look, laugh or shake your head at. Sad, but true.

I am a huge fan of Water parks and usually have no issue enjoying any of those tubing rides or the super slides. We used to go to Water Country fairly often so I like that KD has the roller coaster thrill and water fun. There are also Character Breakfasts, Kiddie Shows and awesome concerts to enjoy each season. I definitely want to catch Kings Fest this year with Matt Pitt and The Basement Experience. The kids have loved going to KD. It's awesome when you have a season pass because you don't feel pressed to stay all day to get your money's worth. We've gone at varying times of the day and stayed for a several hours or just a few. Obviously it has been considerably more crowded in recent weeks, but still a lot of fun.

We will have to revisit BG again sometime to really check it out and see how it's changed and compares to KD. For now I'd love to hear your thoughts on Kings Dominion, Busch Gardens or both, so feel free to leave comments on your preference. I've also added a quick poll at the top of the blog, please take a moment to cast your vote.

  1. The results are in 64% to 35% in favor of Kings Dominion. We'll still have to check out Busch Gardens one day to have the BG experience and compare the two. Thanks for participating!!!
