  9. Additional FAQs are available on each guide page, so be sure to check the park pages! https://www.visitkingsisland.com/welcoming-you-back/before-you-leave-home Before You Leave Home Staying safe means staying informed, and we want you to have essential information before you arrive. Kings Island will open with limited capacity in the park so you can maintain proper social distancing from other guests. To ensure that happens, you must reserve your visit date and arrival time online in advance. You must also provide information about the current health of family and friends coming with you to the park. Here are details about what to do, what to pack, and what you can expect. What to Do Before You Leave Home 1. Reserve your date and arrival time in advance online. When we begin accepting reservations, you will be able to reserve your visit on the Kings Island website or on the park mobile app. After you have made the reservation, you will receive a confirmation screen and shortly thereafter, an email confirmation. These will help you confirm that the transaction was processed. The reservation will be attached to your Season Pass or ticket and you will only need to present those to be scanned for entry. Please note that each person must have a valid Season Pass or ticket to enter the park in addition to the reservation. Guests two years of age and under will be able to enter the park on their parent’s or guardian’s reservation. If you need to purchase a parking pass, we recommend you do so before visiting the park to avoid paying at the parking tollbooth. 2. Complete the pre-entry health assessment. Within 24 hours of your visit, open the Kings Island mobile app and complete the Health Assessment Questionnaire. Only one questionnaire is required per group. Your responses will be cleared each night, so this must be completed each time you come to the park. If your group does not pass the health assessment, we will ask you to reschedule your visit to a different date and time. 3. What to pack before you arrive. Your Season Pass, mobile or printed tickets. A face covering for each guest two years and older. A mobile phone with the Kings Island app downloaded and "Location Services" enabled. At least one person in your group must have this, but we recommend as many guests as possible have the app downloaded to their mobile device. Contactless payment method (other than cash) such as credit card, Apple Pay and Android Pay. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/welcoming-you-back/when-you-arrive When You Arrive Our reopening plan calls for new arrival processes to prepare everyone for a safe and successful day at the park. Here’s what you’ll see and experience when you arrive at Kings Island: At the Kings Island parking tollbooth, we will ask you for proof of parking payment. If you do not have a parking voucher, you may pay with a cashless payment method such as a credit card. We will also confirm that your group has a reservation for the day. As soon as you exit your vehicle, go ahead and put on your face covering and keep it on while at the park. Stay safe! Next, you’ll pass through a thermal screening tent where your temperature will be read. If anyone in your party has a temperature of 100.4°F / 38°C or higher, you will be directed to return home and reschedule your visit. At the gate, our Kings Island bag policy remains in place. At our touchless turnstiles, scan your Season Pass or Daily Ticket inside the Kings Island mobile app and let the fun begin! For everyone’s safety, all associates working in the park must complete a health assessment and temperature check each day before reporting to work as well.

  14. A Message from Richard Zimmerman, CEO, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company June 5, 2020 Update As a result of ongoing discussions with Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Lt. Gov. John Husted, we are very pleased to announce that our Ohio parks, including Cedar Point and Kings Island, have been cleared to reopen. We will provide specific opening dates just as soon as we confirm details with the governor. We appreciate the cooperation and support of all those that are working hard to help us and the state of Ohio reopen. We plan to continue conversations with the governor and lieutenant governor that have helped reach a positive resolution for all parties. We also owe a big thank you to our local city, county and state officials who have assisted us throughout this process. The reopening of our parks is crucial to the economic viability of Erie County and Warren County, and we look forward to getting back to business and hope that other states will follow Ohio’s lead in reopening parks around the country. We are taking every necessary precaution to keep our guests and associates safe in accordance with governmental and CDC directives, Erie County and Warren County health departments, medical professionals, Ohio’s Development Services Agency (DSA) and industry best practices. Cedar Fair’s capacity-controlled, family-friendly properties at Cedar Point and Kings Island, coupled with the operational expertise of our seasoned park professionals, ensures an environment where predictable observance and enforcement of social distancing and COVID-19 protocols can be achieved. More details about our safety measures and what to expect when visiting our Ohio parks will be released closer to the opening date. We cannot wait to welcome back our loyal guests to Ohio’s treasured amusement parks, which have brought fun and happiness to generations of families.
