We live near Kings Island so we have been here several times over the years. Always lots of fun. They have great rides and shows. Price keeps going up over the years, but the entertainment value is still a good deal.

Kings Island had lots to do for all ages and likes. They have the best roller coasters along with good food, an arcade, attractions, shows, etc. I would recommend going here if you come to Cincinnati

Kings Island is what it is -- an aging amusement park with a few good rides that keep people interested. The Halloween themed "Haunt" is mediocre and the Christmas spectacular is "meh."

Yes you can. As soon as you enter the park, head to the left. There is a booth there to buy fast passes.
