Location: Rivertown, current location of the former The Crypt ride
Vehicles: Each canoe was approximately 15-feet in length and typically held two guests each
Description: Kenton’s Cove was the smaller of two canoe attractions at Kings Island. Participants could paddle around a large pond adjacent to Kings Island and Miami Valley Railroad.
History: Cincinnati’s Coney Island also included a canoe attraction, though it is uncertain if those specific canoes were relocated to Kings Island and used on either Kenton’s Cove or the nearby Shawnee Landing.
Kenton’s Cove is one of the shortest-lived attractions at Kings Island, only operating during the 1972 season. In 1973, it was replaced with Kenton’s Cove Keelboat Canal. The new attraction retained the large pond.
