Kings Island Blog followers meet cast of Gravity

Kelly Obbie

Social Media Coordinator - Kings Island

The Gravity show at Kings Island has been a favorite with many of our guests this summer, which is why the Kings Island Blog and Entertainment teams wanted to offer our readers an opportunity of a lifetime with a backstage tour with the cast before the show ended its run on August 19.

Gravity is a Cirque-style show featuring a cinematic display of impressive acrobatics. The performance centers around a group of astronauts who find themselves trapped on an alien planet. The athletic and charismatic performers have left guests both open-mouthed with awe and doubled over with laughter, making it one of Kings Island’s most popular shows.

The group entered Kings Island Theater 30 minutes before the show and had a personal Q&A with some of the performers as they stretched and warmed up. As his fellow cast members casually did intricate flips on a ramp behind him, one of the performers talked about how he has become very close with the cast the three months he has worked with them, and he joked around with group members.

After watching Gravity, the group was treated to a special behind-the-scenes video that the cast filmed themselves. The performers smiled and waved at the camera as they put on makeup backstage and cheered together in a pre-show, pump-up huddle. After the video the group traveled backstage to see the green room and storage area. As they walked through, performers waved while they ate lunch in full makeup surrounded by costumes draped over carts and props stowed away for the next show.

Keep an eye on the Kings Island Blog for future behind the scenes opportunities and events.
