King's Island is a nice place to go with kids. They have many many rides that are able to handle a variety of ages and interests. They have lots of little kiddie rides for the very young ones. The water park is also really nice. We only go for the day, which is more than enough for our family.
Kings Island is a great amusement park. Its not as big as other amusement park but still has great rides for kids of all ages. My parents took me there when I was younger and my favorite ride is the Beast it is awesome. If you have teenagers you will safe letting them go in a group unlike big amusement parks. I love this amusement park I liked it better than disneyworld since it was cheaper and had a lot less lines then alot of other amusement parks. Its a great park that is under the radar
Kings Island is a less crowded version of Cedar Point. It's trying to keep up with thrilling attractions but it still lacks in comparison. I still enjoyed my stay there and did the two day tickets so that I could enjoy the water park. I have to say though that at Cedar Point I have never had time to enjoy the water park because it's so overwhelmingly busy and I liked that I didn't have to wait as long at Kings Island. Ride the Beast.
As far as theming goes, you'll not find a place that compares to Kings Island. They carry their themes throughout the entire park which is very attractive for little kids (but not too little if they are afraid of costumed characters).
For older kids, the rollercoasters are amazing and you will not lack for finding something for them to do. I find Kings Island to be a nice blend of kiddie stuff with older kid and adult stuff as compared to some parks which are geared more towards one or the other.
Kings Island has some of the best live musical performances along the midway that you will find north of Florida.
Highly recommend for children of all ages and watch for special concerts and artists who also make appearances at night. Sometimes these concerts are included in your regular price of admission and sometimes for an extra cost. Check ahead of time for availability.
I have five children ages 9 down to an infant and they all enjoy King's Island. We never had to pay for admission and we got to park in VIP parking, so I'm not sure about price or parking issues. The park itself was always very clean and there were a lot of things for all of the kids to do.
While I LOVED this place growing up when my parents took me, when I went with my daughter this summer it was the same. Although I know part of it is the fact that I have grown up and your a lot more critical with an adults eye, I know this is not entirely the case. It seems kings Island is more interested in keep adding newer and bigger attractions and not maintaining what they currently have. Paint chipping, not as many flowers, just seems to have a layer of grime that was not there previously. I took my mother back a second time this year for nostalgic purposes and she agreed. While this is still a fun place to go, its just not up to standards anymore
even thought the amusement park is for all ages they had a Blues Clues kiddie section I brought my son when he was Three a year ago and he still wasn't able to ride the rides due to height I was so mad and its a waste of money its just like six flags make sure kids are over 42" they don't have a lot to do for kids its not disney where dreams come true in FL.
When my family lived in Ohio we were at King's Island all of the time! It is a wonderfully fun amusement park with a great variety of activities for all ages! When we were there I was impressed by the cleanliness of the park and that the price wasn't too expensive. There were also some fun shows to attend that we really enjoyed!
This is a great amusement park and it offers activities for children of all ages. There is an area specifically for young children with "roller coaster" for their age. There are also many adult and older children roller coasters too. There is a neat water park area to, with water rides to cool off. The food is a bit pricey, but that is standard with all amusement parks.
King's Island is an amusement park located slightly north of Cincinnati, OH. The price of admission gets you into the theme park as well as a separate 15-acre Boomerang Bay water park. If you have younger kids, they will enjoy the Nickelodeon Universe. Here rides are named after favorite Nick Jr. characters past (Wild Thornberrys) and present (SpongeBob and Dora). You have to be at least 36" tall to ride most of these rides. The waterpark's requirements are around 40", although there are some that cater to the smaller children. If your kids are older, there are plenty of thrill rides and roller coasters to keep them busy. If it gets too hot, you can visit their theaters to see live shows in the blissful air conditioning. I wouldn't recommend it for little babies, as there is really nothing for them to do, which leaves you with nothing to do but push them around. The food, like most places of this kind, is completely overpriced. They will let you leave and re-enter the park. There is a picnic grove nearby so that you can pack your own food.
