Best (least crowded) days to visit
How long are virginia and surrounding area's schools out? Will the coming week's weekdays have light crowds?

I know nobody can answer for sure, but estimates are good.

the next two weeks on Monday - Thursday should be light crowds! The last few days ALL the coasters have had one to no train waits!

I have been 4 times this year during the week and it has been perfect each time. Most of the rides are walk on. The longest wait we have had has been on the Volcano. The Volcano has been averaging around 45 minutes, Timmy hasn't been longer then 20 minutes and Dom about the same. Maybe its been good luck on my part IDK but its been great.

We also went on a Sunday and also had a great experience, ride times were pretty much the same. I avoid Saturdays at all cost Big Grin

Re: Best (least crowded) days to visit
Go any day but Saturday and probably not Sunday either...

Monday to Friday is not really crowded at all...except a little more traffic during Fridays in the park but not too bad really!


EDIT: 600th post!!

King's Dominion is the best amusement park around, don't let anybody tell ya different

Re: Best (least crowded) days to visit
When I am not in the Norfolk, VA working on my other hobby, I go on a weekday afternoon around 5PM and stay until the park closes. Saturday is not the day to go, that's if want to stand in long lines. If I do, go on a Saturday I stay until 3PM or 4PM then I head down to Bucsh Gardens until they close. I call this park hopping.

Re: Best (least crowded) days to visit
The crowds on the dry side of the park weren't bad today even though it was a Saturday. Because of a heat advisory from the National Weather Service (forecast high of 106 - I'm not sure what the actual high was yet), the water park was pretty packed, with lines for the slides going all the way down the towers. I didn't have any long lines for the coasters. Even I305's front seat had a pretty short wait compared to what I have seen in my other visits this year.

I'm redesigning all of the Coaster Crew Network sites throughout the spring. Please help me out by answering surveys and polls on our Coaster Crew Network News board!

My top steel coasters: 1. Top Thrill Dragster | 2. Manta (SWO) | 3. Montu | 4. SheiKra | 5. Volcano ... My top wooden coaster: El Toro (SFGAdv).
