This is a super fun theme park! They have tons of different rides for all ages and they have the best roller coasters ever! This park will take a full day to fully enjoy. I do recommend purchasing speed passes for the rides or you'll be waiting in line for up to an hour on some of the rides which... More

Kings Island has lots to offer with the water park and the roller coasters. It's definetly a must do if you're coming in from out of town. the lines can be long and the tickets a little pricey but if you've never experienced it I recommend you do so.

This is the place to go if you are going as older, middle aged, young, teens and kids of all ages. They have something for everyone. I'm in the middle age to older group so I like the slower viewing rides. The train is great. The Old time cars. But the girls in their late 20's love the roller coasters... More

This amusement park has some really good coasters. But, the best I have ever ridden is located here. The Banshee! It is about 3 1/2 minutes long - which is crazy awesome in itself. But, it also has great loops, turns, speed, etc! If you love coasters, you CANNOT miss this one. The only drawback to the park was the... More

Last year we went on a week day late is May. We were there when the doors opened, very small crowd all day, no lines, we did not visit the water park but at least part of it was open. Some things were closed, not sure why but majority of everything was open. There are discounts too, great time to... More

We have had season passes for years. The water park is fun for all ages; the rides are awesome; and if neither of those appeal, there are fun shows. The talent is exceptional. I like to go and just walk around, sometimes.

We are local and have visited many many times over the last 20 years. Each year we keep going back to see what new attractions or rides they have put in place. My kids are adrenaline junkies and there are way too many roller coasters to mention them all. Best way to do the park is to come mid week... More

Many of kings island's rides are extremely rough, like the beast, the racer, and even the vortex. But I love the smoother rides in my old age, like the diamondback, my all-time favorite ride. My tween and teen boys adore all of the rides. Do not come hungry. Food values are not good. Overall a fun way to spend a... More
