Mystic Timbers and The Beast are The best night ride coasters. If spending the full day, get the all day drink wrist band and dining plan.

Enjoyed going back to kings island after haven't been in so many years. The weather was great, ..didnt sweat not once that weekend. Ate a hamburger there at the park which taste so good that i still think about it! Wasnt to fond of the beast ride any more because it beat us up so bad we refuse to go on it again. Flight of fear was a real koo inside ride and the banshee was awesome. Still a decent family park....classic!

August 2019
We got our tickets Thur Tripster An it saved us money for extra things at Kings Island ?? Our weekend was great even with kings island being so packed w/people. Only problem I see is females that show way to much of ur body's for everyone to see and that's just disrespectful due to all the younger kids at the park, better rules needs to be addressed for clothing at the swim park (just my own opinion tho)

"Awesome day at Kings Island"
August 2019
Everything was great the lines weren't to back but we got there right when park opened. Only thing I didn't like was the parking price. KI can lower the price of parking to free if you are buying tickets online with a package deal. Or 5 dollars a car is plenty since the parking lot wasn't all that.

Tip: The Prices for food is out rages should be less for the amount of food you get. Also make you sure you get a braclet for your drink all day is so worth it.

"Halloween haunt"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed October 10, 2019 NEW
Paid $355 to get in for haunt. Lines were hours long so we bought fright lane passes. No workers in the houses. What little help they did have ushered people through so fast, the group in front got scared so you knew where the monsters were. The bayou was like waking through corn but no scares. So mad over the amount of money wasted on mediocre haunt. Should of went to land of illusion. Stood in line for food for 30 min only for the workers to tell us they didn’t have enough help so they weren’t making food. What a joke. I would give zero stars if I could. Don’t waste your money!

We are Cedar Point platinum passes and one of the perks include also admission to Kings Island! We traveled the three hours for four days of thrills and slides. The staff and ride operators were very nice and enthusiast about there job! My top favorites were Diamondback, Banshee and Flight Of Fear. The waterpark Soak City was also great, including the drop slide, two waves pools and the lazy river. I took a couple hour nap by the wave pool under the umbrella. The Eiffel Tower was very pretty to see during the day and at night epically with the nightly fireworks. A great benefit of the season pass is getting in earlier than the public. You dont need a ticket for a specific day you come and go as you please. I highly suggest Kings Island for a fun thrilling family adventure :)

Was so excited to got to this Halloween event they do. Drove 2 hours and spent about $200 on tickets parking and crappy pizza. We were packed like sardines unable to move with out running into some one. We were there 4 hours and did 1 haunted house that was not very good and 1 roller coaster. The lines were so long we gave up and left. Very disappointed!

What is the Parent Swap Program?

Casts are not permitted on Banshee, Diamondback and Drop Tower.

What is the Boarding Pass Program?
The Boarding Pass Program assists guests with mobility restrictions or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by allowing them to access rides at designated times via the exit ramp. The program works as follows:

  • Guests with a mobility impairment or ASD should visit Guest Services upon their arrival at the park to express his/her inability to wait in the regular line. Some questions are asked to ensure that the rider has the required physical criteria in order to safely experience rides, and a Boarding Pass is issued for the guest in question and up to 3 riding companions. 
  • In addition to a Boarding Pass, the guest with a mobility impairment or ASD will receive a “Rider Access Form” that lists the rides that the guest with a disability can safely enjoy.
  • The rider (or a member of their party) obtains a boarding time from the ride associate at the Alternate Access Entrance, equivalent to the length of the ride line. The rider can then wait comfortably away from the queue area.
  • The guest listed on the Boarding Pass must be present as a rider when a Boarding Pass is being utilized. 
  • Guests may not accumulate more than one boarding time at a time. 

Are assisted listening devices available for the shows?
Assisted listening devices are available in the following Live Entertainment venues: Kings Island Theater, International Showplace, Festhaus, and the PEANUTS Playhouse. Ask any of the house ushers to assist you in obtaining a device.

What should I wear to the park?
Weather appropriate attire and comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Guests who wish to also visit Soak City Waterpark must adhere to the dress code:
  • Appropriate swimwear is required. Thongs and transparent clothing are not permitted. We reserve the right to determine the appropriateness of swimwear.
  • Guests wearing bathing attire with metal buttons, rivets, zippers, or snaps will not be permitted to ride Paradise Plunge, Pineapple Pipeline, Tropical Twister or Tropical Plunge.
  • Footwear is not permitted on Soak City attractions. Aqua socks and aquatic style footwear are permitted on Mondo Monsoon and Zoom Flume.

Are life jackets available at Soak City or should I bring my own?
Soak City Waterpark has ample life vests for guest use. Should you wish to bring your own life jacket, it must be Coast Guard certified.
