Busch Gardens has been offering free passes to preschoolers for a while, but Kings Dominion recently announced that it will be doing the same for the upcoming season:

Make your child’s fun unlimited and experience the NEW Planet Snoopy Expansion with unlimited visits to Kings Dominion for FREE! Our limited-time Kings Dominion Pre-K Pass is brand new for 2017 and grants complimentary admission to children age three to five years for the entire 2017 season.
Registration is now available online. Pre-K Pass can be redeemed between September 3, 2016 and April 30, 2017 at the park. Must register online or via mobile app before arrival. Proof of age required to redeem.

More information and FAQs

Kings Dominion is open for the last weekend of the season this Friday through Sunday, so if your child is turning 6 this winter you could go to redeem it this weekend (as long as they are 5 when you get the pass, they’re eligible); the pass redemption center is located outside of the park so you don’t have to be going for a visit, BUT there is a $15 parking fee.

ALSO, if you are getting a pass for yourself, the Gold Passes are on sale for $90 for three more days, then the price will increase. Gold Pass gets you one visit this season, plus free parking next year, is valid through the fall next year, etc. Silver Passes will go on sale shortly; they are cheaper but don’t have parking and expire at Labor Day 2017.
