Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens offering "Virginia Thrills" tickets

Posted Wednesday, May 6, 2015 8:08 AM | Contributed by VitaminsAndGravy

Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Kings Dominion, which are located approximately 75 miles from each other, announced a partnership Tuesday in an effort to attract East Coast tourists to Central Virginia. Deals start at $106 for amusement parks, and a "plus" option for $135 adds an extra day at each park plus Water Country.

I can't say enough how happy I am with the current management.

Wow! $135 for two days at Kings Dominion, one day at Busch Gardens, and one day at either Busch Gardens again of at Water Country USA is a great deal! Four days park admission for $135!

My cousin lives in Richmond, and I'd love to go spend a week at her huge house again soon. lol

I've been out to the Richmond area every year for the past three years and every time I have not had time to get those two parks in. I am thinking the next time I am in the area I am going to have to make time. That is a really good deal.

The one time I remember something similar was many years ago when Bonfante Gardens was still Bonfante, prior to involvement with CF. They had a deal like this set up with then (P)GA. It's designed to help both parks, and I tend to think it does. Great for vacationers, and it's good business.

Kudos all around!

Wasn't Bonfante Gardens a Paramount property at that point?

Andy, to the best of my recollection it was a couple years prior to the Paramount deal (which was management not ownership). A quick googling showed the Paramount in Feb 2003. We were out there in 2000...thinking I saw a TV or newspaper ad or something.

Wow, for once my time-frame is reasonable...:-P

I believe Cedar Fair inherited the management contract for Bonfante/Gilroy when it acquired the Paramount parks.
