    Spent the evening there with my wife. The real beauty of the season pass is that you can go several times during the season and not have to feel like cramming a years worth of fun into a long day.

    If the kids are bugging you for the blue ice cream, promise them you'll take them to Whipty-Do! afterwards. Exactly the same stuff, but you can feed the entire family for the price of one in the park.

    So much fun here! Went on a Sunday and there weren't too many people and lines were manageable. Be sure to ride Flight of Fear, and if you wear glasses, bring a case for them!

    Nothing is more satisfying than the Blueberry ice cream with sprinkles in a fresh waffle cone on a hot summer day!... Mmm Mmm yummy!! 🍦🍦🍦

    The new Banshee roller coaster is great. But, they do not allow you to carry on any bags or loose items. They force you to buy a locker. Which, I think is very unfriendly to guests to the park.

    Did you know? Kings Island was built as a replacement for Coney Island, an amusement park that was located on the Ohio River and traced its roots to the 1870s, when it was a popular picnic spot. Read more

    Make sure you get the fast lane pass at least once you won't regret it. I rode every ride I wanted to at least four times and the people in the line had a hour to two hour wait.

    Such a clean park! Amazing rides as well... Make sure to hit Diamondback, Banshee and once the sun goes down, take a ride on The Beast at night.

    With 15 roller coasters to experience, this place offers a great bang for your buck! Be sure to check out Banshee and The Beast at night!

    Absolutely amazing! The roller coasters are the best! Lines can run long. If you're rich buy the Fast Pass if not wait with the rest of us.

    It's a great combo amusement park if you live within 3 hours drive of the park. Unlimited refills on souvenir cups day of is a great deal.

    Figured a Sunday in July would be busy, but at 5 after seeing a Reds game, perfect for us. Got to do all the big rides, longest wait was 45 mins for Firehawk. Vortex 20 and Diamondback 30.

    Like any other amusement park, the food is overpriced. Pack lunch in a cooler and leave it in your car. At lunch time, get your hand stamped and eat in the parking lot to save a few bucks.

    It's fun to go for a few hours at night when you get off work. Cooler weather and smaller crowds. Be sure. To ride the beast at night after dark!

    The Beast is my all time favorite wooden coaster and Diamondback pretty good as well. Try riding the beast after dark for extra fun.

    This place is an amazing place to spend with your family or friends.. Thrillers, adrenaline junkies, the food tasters come join the fun.

    If you go during the early week (Tuesday, Wednesday), the park is a lot less busy. We went Tuesday and had no wait on 90% of the rides.

    The nice thing about a season pass is that you can visit over lunch if you're in the area...especially nice if your family is there!

    Lots of coaster. Diamondback, Banshee, Beast, Racer are the best. Top kids area.

    Hadn't been in 15 years but was impressed with Cedar Fair's management. Got a Sunday deal on tickets + fast lanes, which were clutch. Banshee was cool, but Diamondback was the clear standout for me.

    Go at night for the Starlight fees at $22 from 5pm-10pm. I was lucky enough to have a full moon view while riding the Beast

    Kings Island has a wonderful selection of flat rides. If you're looking for a fast line, hit up Delirium! That thing eats lines for breakfast!

    Plan your front-seat night ride on The Beast: add 20 mins to posted wait; get in line so you'll be on ride 1 hour after official sunset but before 9:45 fireworks shutdown.

    Pack a cooler and have a picnic in the parking lot. It's a great way to save money on lunch in the park. This has become a tradition for lots of families that visit Kings Island!

    Make sure to stop by Rivertown Snake Pit, right next to the Diamondback entrance, and enjoy one of our delicious Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches!

    Line strategy: if you go in the morning, head straight for the back of the park and work your way forward.

    The sky flyer is amazing! The ride up is scary but once you pull the cord it's total fun from there!!!

    Get the Fastpass but don't bother with Fastpass Plus. Then just do Firehawk and the Beast first.

    Banshee, Diamondback, Firehawk, and blueberry ice cream are the best.

    If you don't want to pay $12 for a locker and don't mind carrying around a key, there are lockers by Coney Mall for $2.

    On April 24, 1977, 27 riders became stuck in the Skyride gondolas on a windy day. Firefighters reached some in an aerial truck with a 24' ladder atop the bucket. Others waited 8 hours for a crane. Read more

    Don't be discouraged by a long line at the diamondback, because of the ride's capacity, the line moves extremely fast, and it's well worth it.

    Ride White Water Canyon when it's hot out! Worth the wait. SHOES ARE REQUIRED and like all rides they take height requirements seriously, its 46".

    Get there early to have shorter lines and during a weekday for less local season passholders

    Rode the Banshee first at the suggestion of my high school friend, Stacey Moore Sanning! It was great!
  • Ashley H.
    The park is good for families and you get the water park ticket with the general admission. I felt it was an okay park but there selection for food is not great and really over priced.
  • Courtney H.
    Great for families!!! Everything is sooo fun!! Make sure to get dining with your gold passes!! Saves a ton of money on food! (:

    Make sure that little triangle is secured between your legs while riding the Diamond Back. Someone is bound to fly out of that thing at some point, and you don't want it to be you!

    The fact that people are assholes is never more apparent than at theme parks. Bring tons of money. They get you at every turn.

    Firehawk will cause you to lose anything in your pockets! Use the lockers that are only a couple bucks before riding.

    Everything! The weather was perfect and the lines weren't bad at all.
