Kings Island has been one of the nations leading amusement parks
since it opened up in 1972. It first captured national attention
with The Racer, a coaster that kicked off the modern coaster craze and
followed that up seven years with the legendary Beast coaster which was
for decades the longest and tallest coaster in the world. Kings
Island eventually was sold to Paramount Studios which renamed it
Paramount's Kings Island and following were several movie themed rides.
In 2007 Paramount sold it to Cedar Fair parks who returned it to the
parks original name.
The park is now home to fourteen different coasters including the new
for 2009 Diamondback hyper-coaster and dozens of other rides and
Below you will find photos from my various visits to Kings Island and
Paramount's Kings Island.
