Kings Island: 50 Years of Memories Documentary Film

Recommended Posts


Hello KIC members. We are happy to announce that Kings Island has greenlighted our project "Kings Island: 50 Years of Memories". We know many of you are thinking right now "Wait, Kings Island hasn't been open for 50 years?" and you are correct. In order for our project to be completed in time for the premiere in the Spring of 2022, we must get things started. Making a film can be a long tedious process. The distinction of our documentary is the backdrop will comprise of home movies provided by past employees, industry leaders, and park guests. Many of these old clips are 8mm and Super 8 film that will be restored to the highest quality possible and upscaled to current standards. This type of restoration is a long and detailed process as we go frame by frame.  Kings Island is very excited about this project just as we are. We hope you will share this information with friends and family who grew up going to Kings Island.

How is the project going? I tried to go.to the site to.submit my pics and videos but it just said cannot find.

Things are still moving along, we have completed a couple of interviews with some more lined up this month. We will have a bigger update at Coasterstock this year.
It’s possible you tried to access the site earlier when we were performing some housekeeping on the website. Everything should be back up now.
You can follow the link below for material submissions to the project. Thanks
