Kings Island to Open Two New Rides

See recent posts by Amanda Geronikos

Famed Kings Island Amusement Park, just outside of Cincinnati, has announced not one, but two new rides for families with young children, both expected to debut in 2015.

At Planet Snoopy, youngsters will find Snoopy’s Space Buggies, six, four-seat carriages that calmly bounce up and down as they rotate in a circle.

On The Woodstock Gliders, also at Planet Snoopy, riders will ascend 28 feet to glide in eight, two-person carriages. They’ll also be able to control the flight with a moveable front wing. Pennsylvania’s Dorney Park has also announced a similar ride, The Cedar Creek Flyers.

Additionally, Kings Island’s Starbucks will be moved to a large space on International Street (it will seat 219 patrons); Yogurt Plus will replace the old location.
