Media Pass Policy

Media Pass Policy

The news media admissions policy for Kings Dominion enables working media to become familiar with the park’s many story opportunities and, at the same time, enjoy a day with family or friends. This program is for media personalities only. Tickets may not be set up under a family member's name, or picked up by anyone other than the media contact.

We are pleased to extend the following courtesies to news media representatives who live and work in our region:
  • Working media on assignment are provided complimentary admission to the park and will be accompanied by a media escort.
  • A maximum of two (2) complimentary tickets per season are provided to visit Kings Dominion to qualifying media (within a 250 mile radius of the park) for enjoyment (non-working) purposes.
  • We are aware that some newspapers, radio stations and television stations prefer that their personnel not accept complimentary passes to events and attractions. We respect this policy and will decline to offer passes to your personnel if you so indicate. Please contact the Communications Department at Kings Dominion if you wish to have your organization excluded from this list.
  • Freelance writers must provide written confirmation of assignment.
  • Online bloggers will qualify for media tickets after providing documentation that the blog receives at least 20,000 hits per month. 
  • This courtesy is extended to active members of the news media only, not to include office, sales or retired personnel. Identification in the form of both a photo ID and a news media ID (press card or business card) is required on the date of use. 
  • Please note that complimentary media admissions do not include concerts or other special events and attractions at the park.
