“A hometown favorite for shows rides and water park!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We love KI(what us locals call it)! We can always count on a good time with family or friends, whether for Halloween haunt or just riding rides. KI offers amazing rides, fairly priced foods and extras. They even have a bar that you can sit back and relax at after a long day of walking around. If you are in town for a little, take a moment to visit for a day. It will be a good time, especially if you're into roller coasters. The Beast is my favorite, especially at night!! Have fun!

“Lots to do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Good for a day of fun, better like walking and waiting if you visit during weekends or busy days. Expensive, needs a facelift overall.

“Great in the fall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Went the first weekend in October it was crowded but the Halloween theme was worth it. Plus it was cool, no sweating. Great customer service. Great rides. Everyone had a great time. Can't wait to go back this October.

“If you come only once, get express tix”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

IF you are there on a busy day and it's your only visit, splurge and get the express tickets. Otherwise you spend WAY too much time in queue.

“One of the best parks in the country.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Good location, great rides, good food! Kings Island has it all. The park is always clean and staff are generally friendly. The shows are good and well thought out and the water park is also clean and updated. I wish Cedar fair would implement a ticket system like Disney does for their parks, so rides would not be as congested through out the day. Great Park, always a good time!
