KIngs Dominion: What an adventure!! :)

Hi, ESL members!!

WE MEET AT DUNN LORING METRO:

2700 Gallows Road
Vienna, VA 22180

We ALL MEET ON THE WALKWAY, inside the metro (WHETHER WE ARE DRIVER OR NOT).

Summer is around the corner! Let's go on another amaaaazing adventure!! We've been to Kings Dominion more than once (and had a BLAST), and I told many members (already in the beginning of May, that we will go again soon!!! :) So, I should keep my promise and post it now!! )

**If you can be a driver, PLEASE indicate this next to your name (After you RSVP).
I will edit the amount of people who can sign up, accordingly.**

There is plenty to do there, for everyone!! They have live shows, a GREAT roller coaster collection, a variety of different types of "dry" rides, water rides, dining, more than 30 restaurants and snack stands, and games to play!!!!  SINCE we have gotten 15 or MORE people, THEN we  pay 31.99 (32 bux), which is LESS than at the KIDS PRICE.

If you don't like rides, you can also have fun!! We will also have our wonderful, beautiful selves to hang out with all day long! :)
Here's the scoop:
WHEN: 8:45 AM on Saturday, June 15th

WHERE WE MEET: At the walkway of the Dunn Loring/Merrifield metro station (on the orange line).
COST: 32.00 (31.99). You pay me THERE. We will split the 10-dollar parking fee with the people who are in the car we each ride in.

WHAT TO BRING: Assuming it will be hot by then: sunscreen, water (you can also buy water there of course), a bathing suit, towel and a change of clothes (If you wish to go to the water park as well).
You also will need money to buy the ticket, pitch in for gas and parking, and food.
You may wish to bring a camera for pictures.
I'm so excited! It will be our first trip to somewhere, and it promises to be wildly fun!! :)

See you soon!

    hi everyone I am new to the group looking forward to meet new people!

    People who went to theme parks with me in the past told me that while they enjoy the structure and leadership that I usually give, at theme parks they want to split up and do whatever they want. That is why I had it that way...:) I am so happy with the nice emails I got that said that people loved that I did that! You are all adults and it's your choice which rides you go on...I'm very flexible as far as not minding where to go so it's your choice...I actually won't have another meetup for a long while as I will utilize the summer to take care of my own things...I'm so glad that people had fun and I wish you all a great summer...Noonie

    Thanx so much Jaime!! That is so nice of you to write such positive feedback!! Especially after all the work that went into this specific meetup after some changes had to be made...I'm so glad we had great weather!!

    really good time

    June 16, 2013

  • Noonie

    I was able to sell all tickets of the last minute cancellations. :) As we had such a cheap price of just $32. :) Peter Z....I responded to the comment I just saw now that said "where is everyone?" but you found us right away and I can't see web comments from my flip phone...:) That's why I tell people to just call or text me, but it's ok...You must have remembered my exact directions as you went straight to us and found us, lol..AWESOME!! Thank you to the last minute drivers who saved the day!!! :)

    June 16, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thank you to all those honoring their commitments and going!! :) See you soon and, lol, I didn't sleep at all as I was worried about 3 drivers canceling at the last minute, and other no shows at the last minute that we'll have even when they said they'd go..Oh well... We will still work it out as Walter, Peter Z., and my guest are awesome enough to step it up and driver and help out last minute like that...As for those who canceled on me at the last minute who said they would go, I should be able to sell their tickets there as we have a very cheap price (it's 59.99 at the door!!)...If though, I won't be able to sell their tickets, then they need to pay me for them as I asked many times to confirm and they all said they were going...:) I should be able to sell it there...But just in case...OK, see you soon! :)

    • Peter

      Where is everyone ? I'm at the metro now

      June 15, 2013

    • Noonie

      Peter Z., ...I just saw your comment now here, but you found us right away, lol...We were on the walkway exactly where I said we would be many times, and I was there early..:)...As you saw, there was only one place to go and only one exit...It was so easy to find us...:) So, now I see that you wrote "where is everyone," but you saw us right away when you went to the walkway....:) As I said, I only have a flip phone, so I said to text me or call if you have any questions, as I can't check comments online when I'm at a meetup, but no problem :) Glad people had fun...

    Hi harvey! That's totally fine as I haven't bought the tickets yet. :) Thanks for letting us know. :) See you another time!

    June 14, 2013

  • Noonie

    YES!! We usually get back home late! That's why I made it for Saturday, versus Sunday! Sometimes we go to a restaurant on the way home, for dinner even. :)

    June 14, 2013

  • Noonie

    I am bringing a guest and he said he can be a back up driver!!! So!! With Wratko, Hildamar, my guest, Peter Z., Anveshi, Mansoor, and Rosario, we should be good with drivers. :)) That's AWESOME!!!! The weather looks GREAT which is so cool so that we can swim, etc. etc.!! :)

    June 13, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi, Elodie. :) I hope all is well. :) Yes, I did write a bunch of members that I wanted to do it earlier....I'm so glad you feel the same as me!! Anyway, the feedback I got was that there are many who think that 9 am is already so early for them on a Saturday morning and that they don't know if they can make it if it's earlier (although you, Peter H., and I and a couple others can make it earlier)...Therefore, my decision was that I will likely post it for only 15 minutes earlier, 8:45, so that that can help people arrive BY 9...THIS way, we hopefully won't have to wait till after 9:15. Last year, this meetup was posted for 9:30, that's why I chose 9, since it's earlier...See you guys soon!

    June 13, 2013

  • Elodie

    Should we meet earlier than 9am? (It's 1h30 to 2h driving from the metro)

    June 13, 2013

  • Noonie

    yes

    June 12, 2013

  • boyman

    are we mtg at the metro stop at 9 am and then going to the park?

    June 12, 2013

  • Noonie

    I don't think we are doing the "All-you-can-eat" picnic. :) Members are glad that I at least told you of the option. :)

    June 12, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thank you, Peter Z.! I'm glad that I called you and told you about Kings Dominion, since you had RSVP'd and forgot about it. :) Now you are going, and also can drive! :) That's great of you!!

    June 12, 2013

  • Peter

    I can drive with room +3

    June 12, 2013

  • Noonie

    Cool, Cristian. :) I'll buy you the ticket...:) It's ok if we don't get the "all-you-can-eat" picnic, I just wanted the group to know about it...OR, if some want it but some don't, perhaps we can still all meet there in the pavilion somehow (I'll find out.:))...

    June 12, 2013

  • Christian

    Hey Noonie! Count me in, too. I will need a ride though.

    June 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    Daniel, that is very nice of you to tell us again. I was writing my email for the people who haven't said yet that they are definites, and whether or not they need a ride. I do know that you have the season pass, and that you need a ride. :) We'll put you with a driver, and see you soon. :)

    June 11, 2013

  • Daniel M.

    I need ride with someone like carpool from Dunm Loring Metro Station to Kimgs Dominion and need ride return trip home Saturday night too. I do have Season Pass includes free parking and free admission.

  • Noonie

    Thank you Mansoor and Maggie, for confirming. I will buy you guys (and Maggie's guest) a ticket. :)

    June 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thank you Mansoor! I just saw your post that you can drive now! :) How many can you take in your car from the Dunn Loring metro? See you soon! :)

    June 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thanks, FQ! That's great that you can drive!! We'll let you know there if we need you to drive, and I think we do! :) See you soon!

    June 10, 2013

  • boyman

    I c an drive

    June 10, 2013

  • Noonie

    We will organize who goes with whom from the metro location. From looking at the comments, it looks like we have as possible drivers the following people: Wratko (can take 2), Anveshi (can take 2-3 people) and Rosario. If you are also someone who can drive, then please let us know. I am also a back-up driver. I believe that Peter H. is most likely also a back-up driver. If you are listed as going but cannot go, then please change your RSVP, as I am buying the tickets (you pay me the 32 bux there), and I will not buy for those who haven't told me that they are definite. Thank you so much to Wratko for always being on the ball about confirming, and for also offering to drive!!!

    Unfortunely I won't be able to attend. You guys have fun.

    Wahida, we meet at the metro and we carpool from there. I will put you in a car and it will all be set up. Thank you.

    June 3, 2013

  • Daniel M.

    I am Deaf and my namz is Daniel Murray I can join with you for ride to Kings Dominion because I have season pass include with free parking and free admission

    June 3, 2013

  • Nabil E.

    Interesting !!

    June 3, 2013

  • Wratko H.

    Sounds great, re-confirming for sure, 2 tickets (me + guest).

    May 31, 2013

  • Noonie

    Good news!!! I have our price now!!!! You ONLY have to pay me 32 bux and I will get us ALL the tickets!!!! It's 31.99 each for the group rate. That is LESS than multiple's day as you do NOT have to pay me a processing fee and for multiple's day, if you get it on your own you also pay the processing fee. I have it covered for you. SO, besides helping your driver a little with gas and parking fee, and the possible discount ticket for all you can eat food (I'll tell you about it later, it's your choice about the food), besides just that, you ONLY have 32 dollars to pay me...SO, now I need definites of who is going, so that I can buy the tickets...IF most know that they can go, and only a few decide only on that day, then you CAN be added on at the gate. As long as I have at least 15 people who are going FOR SURE, and I think that most ARE for sure!! THANKS, and see you soon!!

    May 31, 2013

  • Noonie

    Daniel, that is great! So you can go with the Season's Pass that you paid for since you go more than once. Awesome! I was thinking about how Deaf Awareness on June 1st! I love that they have that!...Guys, the day we go is called "Multiple's Day," and they have a special discount for that day!! However, I would like to see if the group discount will be comparable to that, and we will know that after May 31st, when they post it as the one they have up is for spring. I'll keep you posted! :)

    May 28, 2013

  • Daniel M.

    I do have Season Pass for Kings Dominion include with free parking and free admission and also I will going to. Kings Dominion this weekend Saturday June 1 for Deaf Awarness Day.

    May 28, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi guys! Sooooo, to give you the EXACT cost of what our ticket will be (INCLUDING the process fee), we will have to wait till after May 31st, as THAT is when they will have the NEW group rate fee...The group rate listed now, is for those going before May 31st, we STILL can get our group rate, and it MIGHT BE the SAME EXACT price, BUt they will LIST it RIGHT AFTER May 31st. :) If it's more than what they have now, it will STILL be cheaper than the kids' price. :) I'll get back to you about it, AS SOON as it's listed!!! PROMISE..:)

    May 26, 2013

  • Noonie

    Thanks Anveshi, for offering to be a driver!!! We all meet at the metro, and then carpool from there. Looking forward to meeting you, and everyone else! :) We're going to have a lot of fun! It shouldn't be cold that day, like it is today...Have a great Memorial Day weekend! :)

    May 24, 2013

  • Anveshi

    Willing to drive and space for 2-3 more people.

    May 23, 2013

  • Noonie

    Oh, and HILDAMAR that is SO great that you'll bring your son! We have had kids to Kings Dominion before. :) With the group rate, it is lower than the kids' price. :) It's 31.99 per person, and you'd pay me THERE. I will find out if that includes tax. See you soon!! :) Glad I will finally meet you!

    May 23, 2013

  • Noonie

    HILDAMAR, the price of the tickets was immediately posted. I wrote it on the write-up. It says that IF enough people go to make it a group, then it will be 31.99. We DO have enough listed to have a group rate, I JUST have to verify with everyone who is 100% going, and who is a maybe. IF we don't get enough for it to be a group rate, it's 39.99 (that is a kid's price special, just as I wrote.). And, yes Prutha, if we qualify for a group rate, then YOU would EACH pay me AT THE GATE the group price. I will call them to verify if that includes the tax. THANKS GUYS!!! WE HAVE TIME to see if more sign up and also we have time to see who is a maybe, and who is definite. THANKS! Have a GREAT Memorial Day weekend! :) See you soon!

    May 23, 2013

  • HILDAMAR

    Please when do you have the prices of the tickets, let me know..I would like to go with my son..Thanks.

    May 22, 2013

  • Mr. P

    When will you plan to buy tickets? Are you gonna buy at the gate?

    May 22, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi guys, Gld that many are interested! We shouldn't buy our tickets online yet AT ALL as if we have ENOUGH for the cheaper, group rate, then I would be paying for all of us, and then you would all just pay me the group rate I have listed. Let's first make sure that all who are listed are going. We have a pretty good turnout in ESL, so it's most likely that we have enough for the group rate! Yay! I'll keep you posted and, also, we have time for even more people to sign up. :)

    1 · May 22, 2013

  • Noonie

    If either it ends up being too cold to swim, OR if there is rain in the forecast, we'll reschedule...There are enough people listed who are going for the water rides....In June, USUALLY the weather IS warm enough to swim though! So, on most years we would be good, for sure!! This year, the weather is kinda off...I hope we will be good. :) HEre's hoping for the best! :)

    May 19, 2013

    willing to driive

    May 19, 2013

    Hildamar, we are so glad you will be coming! And, with your son! :) I look forward to finally meeting you!!!

  • Noonie

    Awww. :( Francisco was signed up to go, but he can only go on Sundays. :( Sorry for that!!! We have to keep Kings Dominion for Saturday, so that people won't be tired for Monday....Maybe I can change the Waterfront meetup to that Sunday, so that you can stay signed up for that one, though....I wouldn't mind doing that one on a Sunday as my Sunday school year ended in May (I will ask members if they can change it...We'll see...).
