About Kings Island Amusement Park
Kings Island is a 364-acre (147 ha) amusement park located 24 miles (39 km) northeast of Cincinnati in Mason, Ohio. Owned and operated by Cedar Fair, the park first opened in 1972 by the Taft Broadcasting Company in an effort to move and expand Coney Island, a popular resort destination along the banks of the Ohio River that was prone to frequent flooding. After more than $275 million in capital investments, the park features over 80 rides, shows and attractions including fourteen roller coasters and a 33-acre (13 ha) water park.
Throughout its history, Kings Island has appeared in popular sitcoms and has received widespread recognition for its record-breaking attractions and events. One of the park’s most well-known attractions, The Racer, is often credited with reviving worldwide interest in roller coasters during the 1970s. Others, such as The Beast and Banshee, have set several world records including some of which are still standing. The park has also suffered through times of negative publicity, particularly surrounding the early demise of roller coasters The Bat and Son of Beast.
Kings Island is divided into several themed sections. The seasonal amusement park is open from early spring through Labor Day in September, and then reopens for several weekends in September and October for Halloween-themed events. In 2015, Kings Island was the second-most visited seasonal amusement park in the United States behind Cedar Point, with an estimated 3.34 million visitors. It was third overall for seasonal attendance in North America, which was led by Canada’s Wonderland. Kings Island has won Amusement Today’s Golden Ticket Award for having the “Best Kids’ Area” in the world for fifteen consecutive years (2001–2015).
