Kings Dominion Trip #1: Hosted by Andrew & Christopher

  • This location is no longer available

You're invited to the NOVA Geek Club's May Paramount's King's Dominion adventure trip! We'll be going to King's Dominion on Saturday, May 11th, carpooling from Springfield (8717 Ridge Hollow Ct -[masked] Andrew) at 8am sharp. We'll get to the park by opening time at 10:30am. The park is open until 10pm, but coordinate end-of-day meetup times with your carpool if you split up midday.

If you can drive, post a comment with your address or desired meetup spot (like a Shopping Mall Parking Lot), your phone # and # of people you can take. People should contact you directly if they want to ride along with you.

Natalie has purchased 16 gate tickets at $31.99 each and 4 FAST LANE PLUS passes (for no-wait roller coaster riding) at $55 each. Total for both is $86.99. I'm distributing these to those who have prepaid and then whoever's left on a first come, first serve basis on Friday Game Night and Saturday. You're welcome to buy a ticket at the theme park or get a season pass and join us. Gate price is $61.99. Online single tickets are $40+$6 fee and you can print at home. Call first to make sure I'm sold out. The $32 ($33.22 for Paypal) per person charge is for a King's Dominion gate ticket if you don't have a season pass. Please bring exact change (cash) if you have not already paid and confirm it with Andrew.

*** At 12:30pm, We'll be meeting for a NOVA Geek Club lunch at Old Virginia "Country Kitchen" in J6 near the Xtreme Skyflyer.

Note - KD Waterworks is not open yet, so no need for a swimsuit.

Payments can now be made to our Paypal account, email address is "[masked]". Please pay $33.22 ($31.99+ 2.9% + .30) to pay for the Paypal fees to net us $31.99 per ticket or bring $32 cash on Friday or Saturday. If you want a FAST PASS, it'll be $89.82 via Paypal or $86.99 cash.

Bring extra courtesy cash for gas ($10/person) and parking ($15/car, roughly $5/person), food, photos, and merchandise. Remember sunscreen and water. Outside food and drinks are technically not permitted, but they won't check you that diligently so try to use your genius superpowers to sneak some discreetly. :)

PS - Natalie will no longer be attending. A friend committed suicide on Monday 5/6 and she will be going to Kansas for the funeral that day. Thanks for your prayers.

    There is now a "reschedule" for May 19th and we can still use the purchased tickets...more details to follow.

    Well...this was a lot of fun and the weather was near perfect, aside from a very minor 20-minute shower. I'm disappointed that the turnout wasn't better, especially after Natalie went out on a limb for everyone and bought tickets in advance to secure a discount.

    Sorry had to bail, car issues.

    May 11, 2013

  • Andrew

    We are leaving my place as soon as we pick up one more...so I expect we will be there right around 10.

    May 11, 2013

    • Andrew

      Who's we, do you have a carpool going?

      May 11, 2013

    • Andrew

      The Tosh...I like that.

      May 11, 2013

  • Stacy

    I'm not sure if I'm coming or not. I'm concerned about the rain in the weather report. If I'm not there for carpooling in the morning then just assume I'm not coming, regardless of what my RSVP says.

    It's going to be a great day. It's not too late for you to join us at King's Dominion on May 11th. Park is open 10:30-10pm. I can purchase however many tickets we need at $31.99 each on Sat, May 10th. You can give me cash on the day of. Parking is $15 per car, so carpool together from Michael's House (Meeting at 8am) or my house (2242 Sanibel Dr, Reston) at 8am. 3 more people can come cruising in my red convertible. I am going to buy FAST LANE PLUS which is $55/person for essentially no wait roller coaster riding. Tell me if you want to buy FAST LANE PLUS and I'll collect the $55 from you on the day of. My contact info is ladycompassion at gmail and[masked] 0055. Message me directly to confirm. Thanks. :)

      You have a LOL.

      May 6, 2013

    • Andrew

      There is, and I've noted one of the FP tickets as yours.

      May 11, 2013

  • Andrew

    Alright everyone. Tickets are purchased, you can either make your payment to our paypal acct, [masked], or can pay me the day of. Payments in cash will be accepted AT THE END of the trip so I don't have to walk around with $[masked] all on my person.

    - The weather is shaping up to be a 50% chance of rain. At this point we will continue as planned to go to KD.

    - Please see the note above about Natalie's friend and do keep her in your thoughts.

  • Nicole

    I would join y'all but I've got a baby shower and my dad's "I'm Not Dead Yet" party to attend that day. But I'll be up for the June date.

    So the plan is we're meeting at Michael's house @ 8am, right? And the ticket is $33?

    May 8, 2013

    • Andrew

      Correct! I guess we'll figure out our carpool arrangements there. I'd rather not drive b/c of license plate "technicality"­..

      May 9, 2013

  • Jeff D.

    May 8, 2013

    If 15+ geek adventurers want to go on May 11th, we can get the daily group rate of $31.99 per person, if we buy all the tickets together. (I can put it on my cc, no problem, I'll buy them around May 5th). They also offer through June 16th a $39.99 single day pass bought online. Season Passes on their website are $96 each if 4 or more are bought at the same time, or $102 otherwise. There are probably other discounts like Entertainment Book or Groupon that'll pop up.

    April 2, 2013

    • Natalie

      Parking is another $12-15 per car unless someone's a Gold/Platinum Season Pass Holder in that car. The Admission-Only "Silver" Season Pass is $72. That's all the recon I've got. See http://www.kingsdomin...­ for more info. I think we're best off getting group passes sprinkled with some buddies who'll get the Gold Season Pass for free parking.

      1 · April 2, 2013

    • Andrew

      Sounds good. Let's set a date of *MAY 4* for everyone to give payment to you. Since the group discount can include any number of people, we should hold off on purchasing the tix until the week before the event.
