History:Kings Dominion was opened by Family Leisure Centers, a joint venture between Top Value Enterprises and Taft Broadcasting Company, both of Cincinnati, Ohio.

In 1982 Senior executives with Taft Broadcasting purchased the theme park division of Taft and formed Kings Entertainment Company (KECO) with Kings Dominion, Carowinds in Charlotte, N.C., Kings Island in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Canada’s Wonderland in Toronto, Ontario.

In 1987 KECO reorganized so that the company owned and managed Kings Dominion, Carowinds, and the entertainment and design division, Kings Productions.  KECO also managed Kings Island, Canada’s Wonderland and Great America in Santa Clara, Calif.

In 1993 Paramount purchased KECO and this became part of the Paramount Park chain.

In 2006 Cedar Fair Entertainment purchased Paramount Parks and dropped the Paramount name the following year.
