  • I live in Nashville but my husband and I went to Kings Island about 5 years ago because we missed the theme parks in Florida where we used to live close to. We went just hoping to get a thrill or two ...  more »

  • I love Kings Island, I think it is one of the best places to go to have fun. I do think it is extremely overpriced and the passes don't even have as many benefits as it used to. Even if you have a gold pass you have to buy a fast past to get in front of the line which i thought the whole point of a gold pass was to be able to skip the lines. Also the price for parking is a little outrageous.
  • Love King's Island! This was my first time back since I moved away 16 years ago. I was able to take my 9 year old and he had a blast! Hope to be able to go back again next year and take the whole family.
  • Great place being going there since grade school. I am getting more picky on rides as I get older and the Diamond Back and the Banshee are the only AAA rides on site. Beast is the beast and Vortex is showing its age. My family enjoys the KI haunted experience each year - not for little ones.
  • I Absolutely loved it. I went here a few years back having never ridden a roller coaster before. My first was the world record setting banshee, followed by one of the tallest drop towers on earth. I have been absolutely hooked since! I rode every single ride but the indoor one (ran out of time). I recommend KI to everybody I meet. GO HERE! I can't recommend it enough.
  • Great times with great friends! We opted for the fast pass bracelets and man was it worth every penny! Wait time for each ride was 5 min or less where everyone else was well over an hour. Id do it again in a heartbeat. Only downside is the cost of food and drinks.
