What happens after the guests go home and Kings Island closes for the night?

The 364-acre amusement and water park is offering you the opportunity to find out. 

On June 9-10, Coaster Campout returns to Kings Island and includes some sweet benefits including all-day park admission  June 10.

Once campers arrive and check-in June 9, they’ll be directed to their campsite where they’ll be staying for the night. After setting up camp, participants will be able to head out and enjoy the park until the park closes at 10 p.m. As an added bonus for all campers, from 10:30 p.m. until midnight, campers can experience Beast, Backlot Stunt Coaster, Zephyr, Scrambler, and Dodgem all to themselves with minimal wait times. Pretty cool, huh?

Coaster Campout participants will be provided an evening snack consisting of typical campout style food like s’mores and trail mix. Breakfast the morning of June 10 will be provided as well and will feature scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits, sausage gravy, granola bars, whole fruit, milk, and coffee.

After cleaning up and packing up campsites, campers will also be able to participate in exclusive ride time before the park opens on fan favorite roller coasters like Diamondack, Mystic TImbers and select Planet Snoopy rides.

Coaster Campout is not your average overnight campout! Where else can you camp overnight in an amusement park right next to some of your favorite coasters? This is an opportunity you definitely don’t want to miss.

Campsites can be reserved online for $200. Each campsite can accommodate up to a 20’ x 20’ tent with up to four people. Additional campers are $50 per person.
