    Extras needed for Photo Shoot

    On May 22, Kings Island will have a photo shoot at the park, and there is a need for riders from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Diamondback, The Beast and Racer. Here are some of the rules: - All riders must meet the height requirements. - Riders must wear plan clothing (no logos or patterns -- must be bright and shiny). - This is not exclusive ride time. The number of rides on each attraction will depend on the shots the photo crew needs to capture. - You might sit and wait. And wait some more. - You will be assigned your seat by the production crew. - Hands must be kept down and inside the cars at all times. - Photos, video and social media sharing is not permitted during your time with us during the shoot. Interested? Please email your first and last name, age, city, state and KIC user name to socialmedia@visitkingsisland.com. Due to high demand, you will ONLY be contacted if you are chosen to participate. You must respond no later than Thursday, May 17 by 6:00 p.m. Please use Extras for KI Photo Shoot in the email subject line. Thank you! Don Helbig

    Kings island losing power often

    A power flicker occurred caused by a reoccurring intermittent issue with Duke Energy's substation outside the park.

    FYI on Mystic Timbers

    We can't wait for everyone to experience Mystic Timbers! Before your first visit of the season, please be advised loose articles are not able to be brought into the queue line area and stored on the ride platform area of Mystic Timbers. Riders will need to store loose articles such as cell phones, pagers, hats, cameras, stuffed animals, purses, backpacks, umbrellas, beverage containers, personal entertainment devices, etc. in a locker or leave them with a non-rider in your party.
