Events: Memorial Day Weekend at Kings Island

By Stef Fuhr · May 24th, 2011 · CityBeat Recommends

Kings Island wants to thank the men and women who serve in the U.S. military. The amusement park will offer free regular admission to any active or retired military personnel on the Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day weekend, as well as July 4 weekend. Regular admission will allow you to challenge many of the biggest, baddest, longest and fastest rides in the world. You can take on the new Windseeker, a 301-foot-tall tower that will spin riders 30 stories above the park.

You will be seated in a two-person swing that will allow your feet to dangle.

If you are getting queasy just thinking about this, not to worry — Kings Island has something for you, too. You can step back in time and see Dinosaurs ALIVE!, a multi-sensory and interactive dinosaur park debuting this Thursday. The dinosaur park is not included with general admission and costs an additional $5. Military personnel will be able to purchase tickets for members of their immediate family at a discounted price of $29.99. There is a limit of six tickets at the discounted price. To get the free and discounted tickets, a valid military ID or DD-214 must be presented at the Kings Island ticket window on May 27-30 and July 1-4.
