*** It’s a great day to be at an amusement park. See you there! ***
UPDATE #5: There are still 4 spots left. You may claim a spot by arriving early with exact cash. Also, there are usually 2 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to join us. Make sure to come early with exact cash. Tickets are $55 each at the “door.”
UPDATE #4: The email with my cell no. has been sent to the yes RSVPs. TEXT me if you need to. If you do not see my email, check your spam folder, and also make sure your email and Meetup settings allow for you to always receive messages from the organizer. If it’s not there, send me a message through my Meetup profile with your cell no. See you there!
UPDATE #3: Just a reminder, I’ll be the one with a red flag (1 foot x 1 foot in size), with the word “ACK” on it, at the main entrance at 10:30am! Once I check you in, I will give you your tickets. Please be ON TIME. Don’t forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. See you there!
UPDATE #2: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $52. I look forward to seeing you there!
UPDATE #1: There are fewer than 10 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $45 to $52 when the early bird spots are gone or by Sun. July 15th (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I’ll be removing those that haven’t paid by Sun. July 8th. Make payment to lock in the early bird price and your spot (see the “Payment” section of the event posting). If you’ve already made payment, the PayPal email you received is confirmation that we’ve received your payment (no need to message me asking for ticket confirmation). This UPDATE has been emailed to the yes RSVPs. I hope to see you there!
Let’s spend a day at Kings Dominion!
I’ve made special arrangements for our group for a full day at Virginia’s premier amusement park, located just 2 hours south. For those that haven’t been there before, Kings Dominion features over 60 rides, shows, and attractions including 13 roller coasters and a 20-acre water park. Its name is derived from the name of its sister park, Kings Island, and the nickname for the state of Virginia, “Old Dominion.”
(White Water Canyon ride)
First and foremost, Kings Dominion is about fun. Fun for everyone! Catch gravity defying hang time on Delirium or take in the view on Windseeker. Kings Dominion is the place to be for adrenaline-pumping thrill rides, roller coasters and more. We can cool off at the water park, take a break at one of their entertaining shows, catch a bite at one of their many restaurants, and pick up a souvenir along the way!
I will give everyone their tickets at the park on the day of the event at the start time. We’ll meet up outside of the main entrance at 10:30am (right when they open!). I’ll be the one with the red flag (1 foot x 1 foot in size) with the word “ACK” on it. After we check in, we’ll be ready to enter the park!
(Thunder Falls ride)
At 1pm, let’s meet at Juke Box Diner, located in the center of the park, for lunch. Afterwards let’s take a group photo.
The normal charge for a single ticket for our date is $74 at the gate (all taxes and fees included) or $63 (taxes and fees included) online. We’ve got an early bird special for this event of $45! The first 30 paid sign-ups, or those who pay by Sun. July 15th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $52. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early AND make payment to secure your spot and get the early bird price! To make payment, please follow the steps in the “Payment” section of the event posting.
Come join us, tell a friend, and let’s spend a fun day at the park!
If you need a ride, I suggest posting in the event comment box. Likewise, if you can offer a ride, please also post in the comment box with number of people you can accommodate.
PayPal account not required. Please follow the steps below (if payment by smartphone doesn’t work, please try your computer). Your RSVP is not guaranteed without payment, and your email receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment (please check your spam folder and email settings). You can also log into your PayPal or credit card account online to verify payment. Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Our events do sell out, so I recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price displayed without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.
- Select “Yes” under “Are you going?” (or select “Change” RSVP to add more guests if you’ve already purchased ticket(s))
- Enter the number of guests coming and click “Finish RSVP”
- Click “Pay Now” (or “Pay Online Now”) at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person
- Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you’re paying for. Modify if appropriate, click “Pay Now” or “Check Out” button
- If you don’t have a PayPal account, click “Pay with a Debit or Credit Card”
- If you have a PayPal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via PayPal
Please be on time. If you are late (arrive after the start time of 10:30am), you risk the possibility of not being able to join us for some or all of the event. I will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation email as a backup (if you are not on the list, you will be required to show it). When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the PayPal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver’s license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your PayPal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please log into your PayPal account (it will say “Welcome, [your account name]” at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP’d under someone else’s payment, please use that name for check-in.
Since this event is paid for in advance, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be submitted no later than Wednesday of the following week. For rescheduled events, you must let me know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date… no refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =)
TICKET RESELL / TRANSFER
Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell / transfer your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale / transfer. Work out any payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send me (the organizer) a message through my Meetup profile (do not comment in the comment box of the event posting) letting me know the first AND last name, and Meetup profile link (if a member) of the person taking your spot (please also copy them on the message). To obtain their Meetup profile link, go to their profile from the mobile website or your computer (not the app), and copy & paste the link from your browser. I host a lot of events and groups, so please let me know the event name and group name the ticket transfer is for. You must let me know by the RSVP close time of 6am on the day of the event.
If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let me know in advance (a week or more before the event) and I will do my best to accommodate (message me through my Meetup profile, do NOT comment on the event posting). If you let me know the day of the event, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and I appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
Kings Dominion does not offer refunds or rainchecks due to weather. As such, this event is rain or shine!
