SeeEdit

  • 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

DoEdit

  • 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
