Picnic Grove


  • Eiffel Tower, (Center of park). This 1/3-scale replica of the famous tower in Paris is an excellent place to look over the park.  edit
  • Water Fountain Show, (International Street).  edit
  • K.I. and Miami Valley Railroad, (Rivertown). Suitable for all ages, this 8 minute ride through the woods will give you an authentic experience riding on a propane-fired steam locomotive.  edit
  • Fireworks. Every day that the park closes at 10pm, there is a fireworks show.  edit


  • The Beast, (Rivertown). No trip to Kings Island would be complete without riding The Beast, the World's Longest Wooden Roller Coaster for the last 30 years. This often-praised coaster is notable not only for its incredible length—4 and a half minutes—but also for its smoothness. All wooden roller coasters are somewhat rickety, but The Beast is actually comfortable compared to most. The ride is located at the back of the park in a deep forest, adding to its uniqueness.  edit


There are restaurants throughout the park, whether you're looking for a hearty lunch or some sugary junk food.

Main meals[edit]

International Street[edit]

Chick-fil-A, pizza, and hotdogs are your only choices for real food here.

Action Zone[edit]

Stunt Crew Grill has burgers, grilled chicken, and barbecue pork sandwiches.


An unusual variety of food: pizza, Chinese, fish fry, and barbecue chicken and ribs.

Coney Mall[edit]

Several restaurants offer fast-food standbys: hamburgers and hotdogs, fries, and Subway sandwiches.


Perhaps your best bet for a healthy meal, stop at the Rivertown Junction Dining Hall for all-you-can-eat buffets, Snake Pit Snacks for a turkey leg, or have the ubiquitous pizza and french fries.

Not much here, although Festhaus has some desserts.

Planet Snoopy[edit]

A variety of snacks for adults and kids alike.

Soak City[edit]

Soft-serve ice cream and smoothies.


If all you want is water, soda, or a slushie, you're never more than a stone's throw away from someplace that will sell you an enormous drink for what will seem like an enormous price.

Adult beverages[edit]

There are actually several places where you can get a beer or even a mixed drink.

For beer, most districts of the park have at least one restaurant offering beer: KI Pretzel Co. (International Street), Stunt Crew Grill (Action Zone), Festhaus (Oktoberfest), 3 places in Rivertown, and Wally's Bar (Soak City).
