Family Activities at Taste of the Season

The holidays are full of fun and memories! At Taste of the Season there are SNOW many things to do with kids during the holidays from rides to games and even special treats so you can make memories at Kings Dominion safely. We’ve rounded up some of our top activities for kids at Taste of the Season to help you plan and have more time having FUN! 

1. The TREATS 

It’s no secret that Taste of the Season is all about the TASTES! Some fantastic food items for kids include Cornbread with all the Trimmings, Honey Hot Tenders, the Wonder-Mint Ice Cream Sandwich and the ‘Tis the Seasoned Pot Roast Fries. And of course, no wintertime at Kings Dominion would be complete without a bite of our famous Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread. 

2. Specialty Nice Drinks 

All of our Sips and Brews can be made naughty for adults and nice for kids to make the holiday even more special. Some of the kid favorites include North Pole S’mores Hot Cocoa, Santa’s Cookie and Eggnog, Holly Jolly Limeade and more.

3. Santa’s Game Station 

From smashing ornaments to pick a present there’s plenty of festive fun at Santa’s Game Station! Purchase tokens and test your strength at Star Light Star Bright. Pick a Candy Cane and see what prize you get! There are ten winner-every-time games waiting for you and your family behind the Eiffel Tower. 

4. Naughty or Nice Bean Challenge 

Step up to the Grand BEANstand and leave your fate to the beans with Mrs. Claus’s Naughty and Nice Bean Challenge! Kids will love experimenting to see whether the jellybean they receive will be nice…or naughty. Will you get Tutti Fruity or Smelly Socks? Blueberry or Toothpaste? Peach or BARF!? There’s only one way to find out… 

5. Crafter’s Corner 

Taking a break? Head to our Crafting Corner in Charlie Brown’s Christmas Town and get a craft to-go. You can complete it at the park as part of your festive fun or take it home to complete and extend your fun. Coloring sheets come with each bag and are available for download for quick fun. 

6. Rides 

Oh what fun it is to ride! During Taste of the Season you can enjoy up to 16 rides, weather permitting, including Sally’s Sea Plane, The Grand Carousel, PEANUTS 500 and more. 

7. Shows & Experiences 

From a fun and dramatic telling of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas to a QR adventure to find Santa’s Sleigh, your Live Entertainment is sure to delight everyone in the family. Sing along to holiday favorites with the Sleigh Belles and Tinsel Tones. Then, dance the night away with DJ Giftwrap in front of the Eiffel Tower.  

8. Of course – photos with your favorite characters and Santa! 

Our characters have missed you just as much as you’ve missed them. Say hello and get a socially distanced photo with your favorite PEANUTS characters like Charlie Brown and Linus. And, no holiday would be complete without a visit to the big man in red himself, Santa! Socially distanced photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus are available for purchase during Taste of the Season.

Whether you want to go on a ride, grab a bite to eat, play a game or relax and enjoy a show, there is something for everyone everywhere you go at Kings Dominion’s Taste of the Season. Join us on select days through Dec. 27 and make wonderful Christmas memories with your family. Reservations are required for entry and capacity is limited so make sure to secure your reservation with us today!
