To say that "Cirque Imagine" at Kings Island is a showcase of strength, balance, and athleticism is an incredible understatement for a show that offers such an amazing spectacle for children and adults alike.

Late Friday afternoon, Kings Island announced that they would allow their guests to see a sneak preview of the most anticipated show of the park's 2014 entertainment lineup.  Dozens of members of the media as well as hundreds of lucky park goers eagerly awaited the beginning of the show which was set to start later that evening.  Some guests lined up over an hour in advance to grab what was being called "limited seating" for this impromptu park perk.
Those who waited to snag a seat for this preview spent their time wisely.  As one act ended and the next began, a concert-like roar of applause swept through the theater.  While each stunt was performed, a nervous gasp for air could be heard followed by a collective sigh of relief by the patrons in attendance.  Amazed spectators gave the cast a standing ovation following the final bow to the likes of a fine symphony or orchestral performance.  
There are few words to describe the energy behind this spectacle, yet I feel as though I can not say enough about it.  It is beyond what one would call a "must see" show and treads into the territory of, "you've got to see it to believe it."  
Well done, Kings Island.  Well done.
"Cirque Imagine" opens May 24th and is included FREE with park admission.  Other Kings Island entertainment options include "The Boyz Are Back" which is now playing in the Festhaus, "Charlie Brown's Hoedown" currently playing in the PEANUTS Playhouse, "Rock 'n Roll Never Forgets" opening May 31st, the return of the extremely popular "Flashback! Totally 80's!" on June 13th, as well as the live music of "Playlist Live!" on June 6th. All shows are included with park admission.
