Amusement Park Opening Weekends

We have some awesome amusement parks here in Hampton Roads, and with the weather warming up we’ve all been thinking about getting outside with our friends and family and having fun.

Our amusement parks have been closed for the winter, but they’re already starting to open up!

You might have to wait a little longer for the water parks, but in our humid summers it’ll be worth the wait.

Which is your favorite amusement park in Hampton Roads?
