About King Dominion
The King Dominion is located about 20 miles north of Richmond, VA and about 70 miles south of Washington D.C. Today, Dominion king offers 13 roller coasters including 4 coaster launches. Last year, the Park was acquired by the Cedar Point Cedar Fair parent company. As a result of its former affiliation as Paramount Park shares similar attractions with Carowinds, Kings Island, Great America and Canada’s Wonderland. The theme in King Dominion has been largely determined by his relationship with Paramount. Some movie themed attractions include: Hurler (Wayne’s World), day of Thunder Kings Dominion season pass motion Simulator, Tomb Raider: Firefall, Italian job: Turbo Coaster, and Scooby-Doo and Haunted Mansion. With Cedar Fair on helmets, these rides may be re-named. Park sections like The Grove, International Street, and the themed Congo are minimal. On the bright side, the park is quite clean and has a decent amount of trees. From the top of the replica of the Eiffel Tower or Drop zone you have a great view of the surrounding Virginia forest.

About Busch Gardens
Located in Tampa, an hour’s drive west on Interstate 4 from Walt Disney World Resort area, Busch Gardens Tampa was actually opened in 1959, the year before one of Orlando’s theme parks. After a modest tropical garden on a brewery tour, Tampa Busch Gardens has evolved into a Park over the thrill of Florida, offering more world-class coasters than the rest of Central Florida Park combined. Tampa Busch Gardens is a SeaWorld Orlando park, and a combo ticket for two Parks is readily available in both locations, as well as on their respective websites. SeaWorld also offers free bus transportation to Busch Gardens Tampa for multi park ticket holders who do not want to make their own trips. Tampa park is the first of four Busch Gardens to open across the country, although only two remain open day: Busch Gardens Tampa and Busch Gardens Williamsburg, in Virginia. (The other two are Busch Gardens Los Angeles, located in Van Nuys in San Fernando Valley north of downtown LA, and Busch Gardens Houston.) The Tampa park has an African theme, and has been known in the past as the Busch Gardens of Africa, and before that, Busch Gardens.

Conclusion
Both Kings Dominion vs Busch Gardens are nice, but in certain case, Busch Gardens is a bit nicer, greener environment, and has a better themed. Plus there is so much to do in the Wiliamburg area. But you must notice about adding extra days on the holiday weekend in order to do this trip from Balimore unless you don’t mind a horrendous traffic jam. On the other hand and luckily, if you could travel Thursday till Tuesday, traffic would be better and you’d be able to enjoy more of the Williamsburg area.
