Student and Youth Programs
At Cedar Fair, the safety and well-being of our Guests and Associates are always our top priorities.
As we continue to follow regional and national health directives related to COVID-19, we want to provide the latest update regarding our park schedule. Currently, Kings Dominion is temporarily closed. It is our hope to open the park as soon as it is safe to do so. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our associates, our guests, and our communities.
Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our spring educational programming including Education Days and Festival of Music. For those that already purchased tickets, we have two options available for you:
- We have extended the valid dates for prepaid spring educational programming and Festival of Music tickets through Labor Day, September 7, 2020. There is no action needed on your part, you may simply distribute the tickets to your students and their registered chaperones.
- For schools that need refunds on their spring educational programming tickets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your school’s name, address, and planned date of visit and we will process your request as quickly as possible.
We appreciate the continued support of our park and our associates during this ever-evolving situation. Your loyalty is invaluable. We look forward to seeing you soon.
