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.

kings dominion season pass savings

Now’s a good time to pick up a Kings Dominion season pass for next year.

A $76.99 (current price) 2013 Gold Season Pass Includes:

One free visit in 2012
Buy now and you can use your pass one time this season! Visit this Labor Day weekend or experience our great fall events, including Halloween Haunt! New pass holders must process your 2013 Gold Pass to receive one free visit.

Unlimited visits in 2013
Visit as many times as you’d like next year! Come for an hour or stay for the day – you decide with a Gold Season Pass.

Free season-long parking
Flash your Gold Pass and zoom past the parking booth without paying!

In-park discounts, and more
Gold Passholders enjoy exclusive perks all season long that are designed to help you stretch your dollar. Food and merchandise discounts, designated days where you can bring friends at an incredibly low rate, and so much more.

Two key benefits to the Gold Pass over Silver (cheaper, not available for 2013 yet) are the free parking and that it includes Halloween Haunt admission for 2013 – in addition to the one free visit this year. So if you’re planning to go once this fall and at least once next summer, the pass is worth it!
