Kings Island is a 364-acre amusement park located 24 miles northeast of Cincinnati in Mason, Ohio. Owned and operated by Cedar Fair, the park first opened in 1972 by the Taft Broadcasting Company. It was part of a larger effort to move and expand Coney Island, a popular resort destination along the banks of the Ohio River that was prone to frequent flooding. After more than $300 million in capital investments, the park features over 100 attractions including fourteen roller coasters and a 33-acre water park.
This was my first trip to Kings Island and I was so excited! I think one of the things I liked most is the theming of the rides. I love how they are all relatively themed to something halloween or spooky. Banshee – Old Chapel + Banshee Scream, The Bat, Twisted Timbers “Go..don’..go..go… go in the shed”, the beast, etc.
Anyways.. there was tons of new rides, new scenery and so on, but this year Kings Island’s most beloved attraction, the antique cars ride, returned to the park. In the new Kings Mills Antique Autos family ride, guests will board replica classic touring cars and take a leisurely drive around a scenic track equipped with a small rail to keep the car on the path. The ride will be comparable to the original Les Taxis antique car ride, combining nostalgia with new enhancements.
Kings Mills Antique Autos will be located in Coney Mall, across from the Juke Box Café and alongside The Racer roller coaster. The ride will be a quarter mile in length and last approximately three minutes. The cars are 2/3 scale replicas of the 1911 Ford Model T; though all-new, they will retain the vintage feel of the original Les Taxis. The ride’s name, as well as theming throughout the attraction, is expected to enhance the nostalgic experience for riders. Below you can see the POV, Enjoy!
