Kings Island Park Opening POSTPONED

Recommended Posts

A Message from Richard Zimmerman, Chief Executive Officer, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company

March 20, 2020 Update

At Cedar Fair, the safety and well-being of our Guests and Associates are always our top priorities.   

We have been continuously monitoring and following regional and national health directives related to COVID-19 and we want to keep you informed on how these events will impact our park schedule. Currently, it is our hope to open Kings Island mid-May or as soon thereafter as possible. We believe this decision is in the best interest of our associates, our guests, and our community.

We will work with Guests who have prepaid tickets during the time period of our park closure. You may contact us at www.visitkingsisland.com/help/contact-us.

For 2020 Season Passholders, we will be adding days to the park’s operating calendar to accommodate for the days the park is temporarily closed (against original 2020 operating calendar). Additionally, 2020 Season Passholders will enjoy added-value benefits to be announced at time of park opening.

We appreciate the support and cooperation of our Guests and Associates during this ever-evolving situation. Your loyalty to our park is invaluable. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Most of us expected this information, PKI. They may well have to adjust the opening date more than once.

Looking for something do at home with the kids? Here’s a list of five ways to have some Kings Island fun from the comforts of home. Be sure the share your fun with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #KingsIsland. We’ll share and retweet some of our favorites.

Enjoy a virtual roller coaster ride

Take a virtual ride on one of Kings Island’s world-class roller coasters. We have several rollver coaster Point of View (POV) videos on our YouTube channel. Play them on YouTube’s TV app and add to the experience by sitting in a moveable chair in front of the TV with other props such as a broomstick for the lap bar.

Enjoy a virtual water ride

Here’s a fun one! Take a virtual ride on Race for Your Life Charlie Brown. We have a Point of View (POV) video on your YouTube channel that will make you feel as though you are experiencing this attraction. Add to the experience by having a non-virtual rider tossing small splashes of water on you at points during the ride where you might get wet.

Watch a parade

If you love a parade, you’ll love watching a replay of the electrifying vibe of the Spectacle of Color Parade from our Grand Carnivale event. You’ll feel like you’re watching it live from International Street!

Make a sketch of your favorite rides

Get out those No. 2 pencils and sketch drawings of your favorite Kings Island rides, present or past.

Challenge yourself with these thought-provoking Kings Island trivia questions

1. A rider on Drop Tower will drop 264 feet. How many times would you have to ride this attraction to travel a mile?

2. The height from which a rider drops on Drop Tower is 264 feet. There is 5,280 feet in a mile. What is the length of the fall expressed in miles?

3. A ride on Invertigo lasts one minute, 30 seconds. If you and a friend rode this ride continuously across from each other, with no stops from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., how many times would you “Face Off” with your partner?

4. The Beast is the longest wooden roller coaster in the world at 7,359 feet. One sheet of toilet paper in the park is 4.5” x 4.5” and there are 500 sheets in a roll. The park will use 700 cases of toilet paper a year. Each case contains 96 rolls. How many times could you cover the Beast’s track with all of this toilet paper?

5. The park sells over 280,000 pounds of hamburger a year. How many quarter pound burgers would that make?
