A Kings Island Life: Sara Mills

Nick Hessler

Nick Hessler is in his second season as a social media coordinator at Kings Island. In addition to being a contributor on the Kings Island blog, Nick creates content for each of the park's official social media channels.

Have you ever wondered who manages Kings Island's website and mobile app? If so, meet Sara Mills, area manager of marketing. Among other things, Sara oversees all digital media efforts. Although every day is not the same, we sat down with Sara and got an idea of what she does on a day-to-day basis at the 364-acre amusement and water park. 

Sara began her tenure at Kings Island in the fall of 2012 as the park's supervisor of events and promotions. In that role, she oversaw all aspects of the planning and execution of special events such as Military Days, Soak City Dive-In Movies, Run & Ride, and Food Truck rallys. Midway through the 2015 season, Sara moved into her current role. 

“A Kings Island Life” is a video series focusing on Kings Island employees who are generally behind the scenes. We’ll find people in every department to feature including guest services, merchandise, maintenance, entertainment, operations, and more. The series will be released on our Blog and Official YouTube channel so keep an eye out for new episodes.

A Walk in the Park at Kings Island: Looking at a screen

So for this week since I was just talking about TV shows, I want to go through the park and find a few rides that have been featured on a TV show or movie, or even rides that are based off of movies. Buckle up because I think our first stop is The Racer. I don’t know what it is about this roller coaster but to me, The Racer just screams “America”.

What's behind the fence?

It's been almost a year since Kings Island officials announced that Firehawk, the park’s Vekoma-manufactured flying coaster, had reached the end of its service life and would be removed before the start of the 2019 season. Combined with the closure of nearby Dinosaurs Alive! in 2017, enough land would be available for observant park fans to wishfully speculate something bigger was on the horizon.
